Best of RVA Missed Connections: October 9 – October 15

by | Oct 16, 2018 | RICHMOND NEWS, WTF?!

What a week for those tenacious lost souls looking to touch fate and spark intrepid romances.

One never knows where Cupid’s Arrow might find them: At a convenience store, at the tractor supply, or perhaps as the manager of Red Lobster makes sure “everything is operating smoothly.” Smooth, indeed.

Into this week’s dance with destiny, you’ll find a little something for everyone — notably for the handsome farm and country boys, especially the “awfully cute” ones playing some “dope country music.”

Also be on the look-out for Josh and Jordie (What up, bruhs!). Someone needs to exchange some photos with you guys from a recent brewery tour.

7-11: Forest hill

“You: blonde, white vehicle getting gas, you work/volunteer with fine arts. I keep seeing you everywhere, and am taking it as a sign from the universe to post this missed connection. Grab a drink or dinner together? I am a SWM.”

Blond Woman at Flagstop Car Wash: Parham 

“You were detailing your Beamer on Saturday around 5:30… Love the way you look and your attention to detail is sexy. Great eyes and…”

Red Lobster Manager

“I was eating out at red lobster with my family and saw you walking around, making sure everything, was operating smoothly.

You had reddish brown hair and cute ears that stick out from your head and thick, thighs and a voice that says I don’t put up with peoples shit. 

I’d like to get to know you and I’m not in it for free food or nothin. I’m 25, male, have a full time job with a college degree, 6’1 190 pounds.”

Wawa: Forest hill

“Polite younger gent in line that put out a welcoming vibe. My transaction after you was slower than I would’ve liked. I was hoping to spark up a conversation in the parking lot but, you vanished. 🙁 Message me if this was you. Maybe we could hang out as early as tonight?”

We Met Leaving Farm Fresh – f4m (E Main) 

“You helped me with my groceries after one of my grocery bags broke. I really appreciated the help and you were really cute and I didn’t even get to hear your name. You were a good-looking gentleman wearing sunglasses. If you’re on snap or qwikmeet tell me what name you go by.”

Went Brewery-Hopping With Josh/Jordie: Richmond, VA

“I went brewery hopping with Josh and Jordie in Richmond on October 11th. I lost my phone on the way back to where I was staying and was not able to text them and say I made it safely. If you get this please reach out via email to exchange photos… all my photos were lost with the phone. Or you can try texting the number in a week and a half, as I should have a replacement by then.”

Country Boy at Tractor Supply: Powhatan 

“Saw you over and over throughout the aisles and in the parking lot at the Tractor Supply in Powhatan. You’re awful cute. Love the hat and boots, and your truck isn’t too shabby either. You: white, not too tall, dark hair, clean face, seemed kind of quiet, shy. Me: short, white female in jeans, cowboy hat and boots buying chicken feed. Would love to talk farming…..”

Light Skin Curly Hair Girl Cooking at McDonalds: Hopewell McDonalds 

“You were working around 5 this evening at McDonalds next to 7-11. I couldn’t keep my eyes off you while waiting for my order. Being that you were in the back I didn’t get a chance to talk to you. Let’s go out for dinner sometime.”

Country Boy: Glen Allen, VA

“To the country boy I was going to walk past and didn’t because I consciously decided to turn and walk a different way; and then you pulled up at the 7-11 with some dope country playing…I wanted to go up to you and say it’s not that I don’t think you’re attractive I just didn’t want it to be awkward. I’m sure you’re an awesome guy and, just to let you know, I felt bad about the missed interaction the entire rest of my day. (Plus anyone who knows me knows I’m country as fuck.)”

You Checked Out In Line Behind Me: Aldi on Boulevard

“you were tall handsome, blue eyes and wearing a blue t shirt. Looked like you were on a break from work. I was in line right in front of you and had made eyes with you while we were shopping. You drove away in a white work van/truck.

I thought you were incredibly hot and I hesitated hitting on you because you looked so good 

I hope you see this and respond”

Tuesday Morning Home Depot: Short Pump

“You were looking good. Pretty smile and we laughed at the other employee. Just wondering if you were single? If by chance you see this, tell me what color dress you had on and what I was picking up. I know your name by the reciept [sic].”
