We’ve read our fair share of weird missed connections — car accidents, “You were the drunk girl,” or “You’re a cocktail waitress at the Hustler Casino.” But, this one trumps all. Listed in Los Angeles’ “M4W” section and called “I grabbed your boobs on Sunset,” it tells the tale of a man who tripped, tried to grab onto something to find the nearest thing to be a girl’s boobs, and in the process he ripped off her shirt… Keep reading »
Confession: I am pretty obsessed with Craigslist’s Missed Connections. It is my life goal to find one dedicated to me, and therefore I check them every day — so far, to no avail. After some deep contemplation, I’ve decided that the way I live my life is not necessarily conducive to the mysterious and sexy aura that tends to spark a Missed Connection. I’m not really a “wink and flip my hair” type; I’m more of a “trip in front of a large crowd while carrying a carton of eggs” type. After the jump, a few examples of Missed Connections based on my life that, alas, I will probably never get… Keep reading »
I’ve accomplished a few really great things in my life — losing 100 pounds, getting sober‚ but I’m not sure anything has been as personally satisfying as the day that I had a Missed Connection posted about me.
If you’re not familiar, Missed Connections is the section on Craigslist where dudes post about hot girls they saw but were too afraid to talk to, and vice-versa. The idea of being chosen, spotted out of all the rest as uniquely attractive and compelling is like a low-rent fairytale that takes place on the R train instead of in a castle. Keep reading »
The city of Paris is allowing people to submit neighborhood-specific missed connections of 160 characters or less through its website.

You know who’s not having a very Merry Christmas? The guy kissing the hot chick on the left. His name is Carmelo and for three months he was carrying on an affair with the hot chick (her name is Sheryl), even though he had a girlfriend. Sheryl, who writes a blog called “Musings of an Irate Commuter,” did not know Carmelo had a girlfriend. You see, their love story started out oh-so-romantically. Carmelo posted a “Missed Connection” ad about her, after crushing on her during the train ride to work every morning. Sheryl actually saw the ad on Craigslist and responded, and the rest, as they say, is history. Well, sort of… Keep reading »
Love to read Craigslist’s Missed Connections and have a thing for dreamy illustrations? Have I got the blog for you! Sophie Blackall creates illustrations based on the missed connections left on the NYC boards — often with the misspelled, grammatically incorrect text included — and they’re totally beautiful and often hilarious. A few of my favorites above and after the jump… [MissedConnectionsNY] Keep reading »
While people have been gawking at the “Gossip Girl” crew that’s been filming all over Manhattan, some of the fans aren’t there to get a peek at their celeb crushes. This guy found his heart drawn towards an unknown girl wandering around the set. Hoping to find her, he posted in Craigslist‘s “Missed Connections.”
I am hoping to find the Gorgeous Tan Girl who was wearing White Pants and an Orange or Red Shirt and was with her 2 friends on 2nd Avenue right outside the Gossip Girl set that was filming. We made eye contact many times and I was hoping you would walk in the same direction as I walked but after turning around many times I finally lost you. If you happen to see this, please email me and let me know if you remember or know who I am or what I look like, etc.. I would love to be lucky enough to take you out for a drink.. Hope to find you…..
Interesting use of caps here! We hope that they find each other. And that they don’t have a relationship as complicated as Chuck and Blair’s. [Craigslist] Keep reading »
After the day’s festivities, which included dancing until the early morning hours, the president and first lady were probably too worn out to have sex last night, but that doesn’t mean other people didn’t have fun! While there weren’t as many Inauguration Day Craigslist missed connections in Washington, D.C., as there were on election night, there were enough to prove that Obama really does bring people together! Keep reading to see a selection… Keep reading »
The year’s favorite love story has come to an end. The 21-year-old New Yorker who posted a drawing of a girl he saw on the subway on NYGirlOfMyDreams.com is no longer with his dream girl. Apparently Patrick Moberg and Camille Hayton broke up just two months after they got together last fall. “I think the situation was so intense that it bonded us, bonded us in a way that you could mistake, I guess, for being more romantic than it was,” Camille told The Daily Telegraph in Australia. “I don’t know. But I wanted to give it a go so I didn’t wonder what if, what if?” Does this mean the movie adaptation of their story is going to have a downer of an ending, too? [Reuters] Keep reading »
Whenever I ride the subway, I am surrounded by people I don’t know. And some of them are quite attractive. I never talk to them because they are too busy reading Wired and I am too busy listening to my iPod. But now I can try to find my heart’s desire on SubwayCrush.com, a missed-connections site for subway riders. I wonder whether people can actually recognize themselves in someone else’s description. Sadly, no one has posted their yearning for a brunette with curly hair riding the Q. [Via Gothamist] Keep reading »
