Best of RVA Missed Connections: June 27 – July 3

by | Jul 3, 2018 | RICHMOND NEWS, WTF?!

Friendship and/or romance was found in New York Deli yesterday, and if you’re from Oklahoma, you may have unknowingly found your true love at a doctor’s office. Along with a dude who should’ve stayed on an elevator at Riverfront Plaza, a couple looking to find that cutie from the Ludacris concert, and another dude creeping on a young woman at Texas Roadhouse just doing her job, many connections were missed this week. Enjoy.

Oklahoma jump start (Petersburg)

We were at a doctor’s office. I needed a jump start. You gallantly pulled your pickup truck up and provided me with one. Then told me to pour soda over my corroded positive post. I asked about your accent. You said it was from Oklahoma. I did not ask if you were married, but now I wish I had, and I hope you are not…

12th floor not 20th floor (Riverfront plaza)

We got on the elevator at Riverfront Plaza. A lady was going to 11, I was going to 12, and you were going to 20. I can’t believe that between 11 and 12 we had such a nice conversation. I should have gone to 20 with you to keep it going.

I would love to continue that conversation. I got my parking validated.

Blonde girl white dress Ludacris concert (Innsbrook)

Looking for the blonde girl(shoulder length cut) in the white dress(short length) to the right of the sound stage. My wife was in the black tank I was in the white tee and black hat. From the short interactions she had with you she thought you were one cool ass girl and wanted to know if you wanted to try hanging out again sometime. I know she regrets not asking you in the moment. I hope you see this! I think y’all would make great friends!

Walmart on Hull, Monday afternoon (Midlothian)

Woman in dress in the gray Rav4 in the back parking lot, you looked amazing returning the cart. I passed you on the way to my car not sure if you were looking at me or checking to see if you were clear to back up. If you were looking at me, respond with color of my car.

Blonde waitress in Texas Roadhouse (Richmond)

You were our waitress and were very beautiful. I was with family and am in my forties so I did not say anything. If you see this and like older guys then lets chat.

The First Sunday of the Month at NYD (New York Deli)

You were sitting at a table toward the front with a bunch of your friends. You were wearing a white sleeveless t shirt and a hello baseball cap. You have fair skin and a blond Mohawk that you were wearing in a ponytail when you first came in, but wore loose for the rest of the night.

I was sitting in a booth on the other side of the room with my roommate and one of our friends and sharing a table with a guy that had toucans on his shirt. I was wearing a grey tank top and high waisted jean shorts with my classic vans. I have dark hair, tattoos and piercings.

I am profoundly shy, but the whole night I wanted to work up the courage to tell you that I think your bone structure is amazing (weird compliment, I know) and that I just had this feeling that I wanted to be your best friend cause you look rad.

I hope this finds you, you beautiful human. If it’s really you, tell me what kind of show it was and let’s go do some fun shit!

Biking on Floyd

We were on bikes and stopped at the light crossing boulevard. Got into a fun conversation. Meant to ask for your name but you turned off on mulberry.

You work at a start up tech company in Scott’s addition.
