Craigslist Missed Connections
Craigslist is a pretty hit-or-miss website. There are job postings, people selling their stuff, discussion boards, community event listings, even a spot to post your resume. Once in awhile when I need something to cheer me up, I check out the “Missed Connections” section. In the past I’ve read a few on the air, hoping that someone who doesn’t necessarily check Craigslist will recognize themselves and either run and hide, or find their soulmate. So here are a few of the Twin Ports latest “Missed Connections.”
Amanda at Cosmetology Careers Unlimited – m4w – 30 (Duluth)
You cut my strawberry blonde hair last Tuesday May 10th into a spiky flame. We chatted and I felt chemistry, we discussed music (you’re favs were Sublime and Tim Armstrong) and discussed our similar future plans of getting out of Minnesota. I really wanted to ask you out but I hesitated and feared rejection. If you remember me, I would love to take you out. You said you were graduating in September and plan on moving to a specific state where you took family vacations. Please tell me that state so I know that it is you who is replying. I don’t know if you’re familiar with the rapper Andre 3000 but he said in one of his songs “if you’re not the one, you are the prototype.” I know we just had one brief encounter, but you took my breath away. I wish I had the guts to walk right into the salon and ask you out but “alas, conscience make cowards of us all.”
Party Store – w4m – 21 (Stoneridge Mall, Duluth)
I was working, you were shopping. You had the most genuine smile I’d seen in quite some time. You were in theater, and you are hearing-impaired. I think it’s adorable.
This should be in rants & raves, you won’t look here but gosh darnit you were frickin’ cute. I melt over tall, deaf men. /sigh. Have fun living in Rochester, NY.
Just seen you at Wendy’s Hwy 53 – m4w – 30 (Duluth )
First and foremost you were a customer not an employee. I tried to smile at you but I am not sure if you noticed maybe you are already involved … or maybe you were intimidated by an older man … I’m not that old though … only 30 … hey Katie Perry and Russell Brand are 10 apart. Anyway you were about 5′ 3” or so with blonde hair that may have been permed. When I grabbed my food I said ”excuse me” and you acknowledged. Not that that means anything but that’s so if you read this you’ll remember.
Put Asiago Ranch Chicken in the title so I know your real.
Good luck finding all your Missed Connections, Twin Ports!
