Craigslist Missed Connections

Sunday, May 9, 2010
-m4w -19 (2 or 5 train)
You were the gorgeous brunette sleeping on the train. I was the guy sitting next to you. I just wanted to apologize for my repeated lack of consciousness onto your shoulder, we both got off at flatbush. Hit me back up if you think this is you.

Have you guys ever seen the "Missed Connections" section on Craigslist? It is like the personals in the paper except these people write in hoping to connect with someone that they saw that day. The way that they describe their crush is occasionally poetic and often hilarious. Sophie Blackall takes the listings from Craigslist in NY and does the most amazing illustrations of them. I can imagine an entire wall of these in a guest bath or guest bedroom. The prints are only $40 each in her Etsy shop! These are my current faves and she puts them up as she does new ones on her blog. Check them out...

- m4w - 25 (Astoria)
We both purchased owl statues today. You are the classy looking dame in a red dress. I am the mustachioed gentleman. I think we should meet up and discuss further wildlife decor.

You: tall, brown hair, incredibly voluminous moustache, blue/green checkered shirt
Me: tall, blonde, wearing all black and Burberry rain boots
I boarded the uptown C train at 14th Street at around 10:50 on Tuesday morning. You got off at 23rd. You were staring at me. Hard. You're really really really ridiculously good-looking.
