Craigslist Missed Connections

Married To The Sea
My coworker Veronica had this cartoon from Married to the Sea shared on her google reader and it reminded me about my obsession with Craigslist’s Missed Connections.
Maybe it’s the secret romantic in me, or just my super-nosy side, but I love having a sneak peek into other people’s lives and lusts. If you aren’t familiar with Missed Connections, it’s where people can leave posts for someone they might not even know, but who caught their eye. For example, if you see a really cute girl on the metro on your way to work, but can’t get up the courage to talk to her? Post a missed connection, describing yourself and her, and tell her through the anonymity of the internet what you really think. Maybe if you’re lucky she’ll respond and you can live happily ever after.
And then there is always the secret hope of finding a missed connection post about you! It’s kind of like the modern day love note.
