Best of RVA Missed Connections 5/15/18-5/22/18

by | May 22, 2018 | RICHMOND NEWS, WTF?!

Missed Connections is finally back with a little spice to it. We’ve missed you, guys. In this batch, sparks fly at Casa Del Barco and Coppola’s Deli, two strangers browsing through Fan-tastic’s Thrift come together, and then there’s also some talks of Cannibalism thrown in, of course.  Stay weird, Richmond.

petite brunette, pretty smile (Cary St.)

We passed each other at about a quarter after 7 last night in front of Coppola’s. When I first saw you, from a short distance, you already were smiling at me, and being the type not to hold a gaze but to write a note about it afterward, I looked away briefly. When I looked back at you, you still were smiling, and up close, the sight of your face lit a microscopic sparkler in my brain. I smiled back, and if there had been a lamppost anywhere nearby, I surely would’ve walked into it. I turned around a second later, but you had rounded the corner and were gone. Just pretend that we had stopped and said hello and now are arranging to meet again. I’ll play along.

Girl walking 2 dogs in Church Hill (25th/26th St) 

You were very cute and athletic looking. We passed each other twice on Monday evening walking our dogs, you caught me looking at you the 2nd time from across the street. Let me know what kind of dog I had or what I was wearing, I’d love to walk together next time.

Casa del Barco (Short Pump)

We passed each other a few times in the store today. I kept trying to lock eyes with you as I came up with excuses to pass by again, but no luck. Just wanted you to know I think you’re really hot

The Girl with The Foot Sized Star Chest Tattoo at Walmart (Meadowbrook Plaza)

I think that your ‘star’ chest tattoo must hold the Guinness World Record for “biggest star on the human body ever.” I wonder if the star on your chest would light the way for our souls to mingle or would it serve as a portal into your heart? Hell, I want to find out.

Chased by Mr. Peanut

Does anyone remember the 1980’s public access show where these two brothers always ended being chased by Mr. Peanut? Just wondering whatever happened to them and if there are any plans for a revival.

Cannibal conversation

You walked in on the end of it.. and you said you can’t pull off shrimp legs. Anyways, you are eccentric, laugh often and are quickly responsive… unless you are with me, and then you are a little more reserved. Now maybe you are matching my mellowness, or there is something else. I want you to feel comfortable. I am also intrigued/attracted to you, so if you see this by chance, and it’s mutual, I’d appreciate some help moving forward. Because of work dynamics, I am unsure how appropriate it is to ask for your number. I hope this final hint will clarify it’s you.. your name begins like an Egyptian sun god.

Girl in fantastic thrift (Carytown)

Hey, you were super cute! I felt awkward to try to talk or ask you out while shopping so hopefully you’ll see this. Let’s go grab some food sometime!

O’Tooles (Richmond)

You were the Duke hater in the baseball cap outside. I was the girl all in black who told you about the NFC East video. Wish I had exchanged names or numbers. If you see this, I’d love to hang out sometime.

Chick-fil-A (Glen Allen)

You came in today around 2:40. Maybe a messed up order?  Nice arm tattoos. Caught your eye a couple times.
