Tri-Cities Craigslist’s 10 Worst ‘Missed Connections’
Ever just missed that beautiful lady at the supermarket? Ever wished that guy at the gas station would've looked your way? These are "missed connections" -- opportunities to meet someone that passed because you had to get back to work, take your kids to school, meet your friend for a lunch that were already late for. Craigslist offers a section for such missed connections where you can try to find that person. Unfortunately, we've found most of the people on there just don't seem to get the concept. Here's our top 10 WORST missed connections in the Tri-Citiesl. (Be advised, the site is recommended only for those 18 years and older.)
1. Uh, this isn't your Facebook wall:
What makes this worse is it's a grown man!
Honestly??? Are we going to be ok? - m4w - 27 (Your Heart):
I'm very sorry or the way I've been acting lately, truly am! I've just been confused and afraid of who you really are. You have this secret side to you that I don't trust or believe. :( you've let me in a little bit but I feel as though there is still more you're not telling me. I want to spend the rest of my life with you! Do you want the same?
2. If you know where she works, it's not a MISSED connection!
Tell me if you agree this is a little creepy. And if she works at the mall and you're 31, she's probably too young for you:
Girl at mall - m4w - 31 (Kennewick)
We talked again today. You remembered what I was hoping to buy from about a month ago. Even after helping out tons of customers. Just want to say I have been thinking about you too.
Cute guy with the beard working at sprint on Grandridge blvd - m4m - 24 (Kennewick)
You always use to go into pacific pasta and grill and ordered the chicken pest sandwich with fries. I was the server there and always wondered if you were into this kind of thing.. Maybe not to hook up but to hang out, catch a movie and mess around. Let me know if you'd like to meet up sometime
Mr dial a ride - w4m - 28 (KPR)
I think you must be a new driver...i havent seen you around before. You are alot younger than most of the drivers I see and I must say you are very cute. I work for a doctors office and have seen you a handful of times. You keep your eyes on your work but when you do take a moment to look up...your eyes are very mysterious and sexy. Not to mention the fact that you help people everyday...turns me on! Not sure you will see this but if you do...keep up the good work, I enjoy watching.
5. This isn't your personal blog!
I don't have much to say here, just that this one sounds like it was ripped straight from a crappy teen sitcom. But if it is real well good luck with that lady. -
My entire life is a missed connection - w4m - 25 (Kennewick)
I am hurting so bad right now. I have come to realize that even my husband seems to be a missed connection. I don't know...maybe it's my fault. Maybe I feel that way because I know what I felt once for someone I used to know. To be honest, out of everything in this world, it's him. I need him. I need to feel alive again. I need to feel inspired, and wanted. For me, those things are how I know I am loved. The messed up part is that the "he" I need never told me he loved me. He tried really hard to push me away, and after years of trying to be something he wanted I gave up on him. I thought I knew I was making the right choice, but now I am not so sure. I am not sure of anything other than the fact that I need you K. I need your friendship back. Sometimes, like now, in the middle of the night I need you to talk to. I need to know I exist. I need to feel alive. I miss you. All my love, J.
Just try to get through this guy's description of this girl and not laugh, I dare you! Once again, just ask her out dude! -
Tattooed Nurse on Monday - m4w - 32 (Richland)
You work in my Drs office. You were wearing Purple color scrubs on Monday. You had your hair up. Short/Brunette/Tattooed you have a chest piece. You look Asian maybe or Mexican, basically you are tan and have a gorgeous smile. You opened the door to call someone back and we made eye contact, I was wearing a gray button up shirt and slacks (I am a banker)
When my nurse came to get me later, I looked around the hallways to see if I could catch another glimpse of you but you were no where in sight. I doubt you will see this and you are far to beautiful to be single but, I hope I get a chance to see you again..
If by any chance you do actually see this. Please tell me something about that day that could confirm its you, and to be more specific you have diamonds on one of your arms, and flowers on the other, you had a long sleeve shirt on but your sleeves were partially rolled up.
My name is Chad by the way.
Just read it...or...well, try to. What a sweet "how we met" story:
You smacked my ass - m4w - 31 (Kennewick Bar)
I wanted to say hi but you were surrounded dudes the entire night. If you see this, tell me where this happened and a description of myself.
I've read this at least a dozen times and I still don't know what's going on here. Did he give the drive thru window girl at Taco Bell an ice cream cone? This is worse than the "Da Vinci Code." -
taco bell and icecream - m4w - 27 (Richland)
i asked you do you guys carry icecream. and you replied i wish too. i got you an icream you said thank you . i was in a drive through and there was car behind me. otherwise i wanted to talk to you more because you were cute. im single if you are too im looking for a friend forever.
im new to the area. i would like to take you out for a dinner or an icecream. let me know if you are interested or not?
One more of these and I might actually have to start liking "Twilight" ...seriously what gives guys? -
The one i will never have - m4w (kennewick)
i see you everyday. i love your laugh,voice smile and your goofy acts . you make me so happy all the time and it seems that you feel the same about me. we make eye contact and smile but dont look to long because i dont want my gf your family member to know how i adore you and the only reason i am around so much is so i dont miss a moment with you.... Last night when are arms brushed together my heart started pounding. shoulders touching playing video games as we laugh and talk all i could do is say goodnight and run to the room. i have been only seeing that person for a short while and i wanna leave her but then i might never get to see you again and that makes me confused
What's with the "I didn't out of respect for your kids." What does that even mean? -
Cougar Checkout - m4w - 19 (Self Checkout)
We just kept staring at each other like we couldnt stop then you told me you were divorced so you were free. I wanted to ask you out like right there but i didnt out of respect for your kids. You told me your name which starts with a S and you showed off your nice tattoo. You even winked at me as i said have a good night ;) i hope you see this so we can meet up soon.
