Best Of VA Missed Connections August 7 – August 13

by | Aug 13, 2019 | RICHMOND NEWS, WTF?!

Summer is all about the extremes of the human condition. Sometimes you’re having amazing experiences you’ll remember all of your life. Other times, you’re just trying to keep from collapsing with heat-induced exhaustion. If you’ve had any of the latter moments this summer (and god knows we probably all have), you’ll relate to this week’s Missed Connections, where the main thing on our minds is just… we need some food!

That’s not all we’ve got this time around — we’ve also got what sure seems like both sides of a country-pop meet-cute, plus some adorably sincere nerd-girl flirtation, and a way-too-relatable story about spilling flour on yourself while trying to catch someone’s eye at the grocery store. In fact, there’s a lot of restaurant, grocery store, and even Sheetz action this time around. Missed Connections are always hungry for love, but this week, maybe they’re just hungry.

Chow down, Virginia.

Where is the food at (Chesterfield)

Where is the food

Pink haired dancing queen

We were stuck in traffic on dock street. You were going east, and I west. Your windows were down and so were mine, and you were dancing and singing in your car like no one was watching. You had a pink furry ball dangling from your mirror and were in a Prius. I would love to take you dancing. If it’s you respond to me with what color your car was.

The Annapolis sweetheart at the Brett young concert (Glen allen)

To the sweet and lovley woman last night at Brett young concert from Annapolis….I would love to talk to you again. Sorry I was to bashful to ask for your number. Lets chat again. 

Sisters looking for man who hit on us at Brett Young concert (Glen Allen)

At the Brett Young concert at Innsbrook on Thursday 8/8, you’re the middle-aged man who was hitting on us and offered to buy us a drink before learning that we’re 20 and 18, and we were flirting back. After we got home, we realized we should have given you a number or something since the attraction was mutual, so we’re trying this. If you happen to see this post, tell us in your reply what band’s t-shirt you were wearing so we know it’s you.


You have to tell me with your words directly to me. I can’t read your mind. So if you really want you have to tell me. Because right now I assuming you’re just being nice to me. I can’t read romantic cues to save my life… 

Caroline red hair from cvill

Your beauty is only matched by your wit and humor. To say you are rare is an understatement, you are in a league of your own and they cannot touch you. You have a sister named k. I heard you were happy now and I wouldn’t want to disturb that but, you should know how special you are.

With love from R.

You work at Cava in Midlothian. You seem chill bro and I fw the tats. I came in tn and we locked eyes a handful of times. Not sure if ur interested in dudes tho.

Missed chance at grocery store (Newport News) 

I saw you yesterday in the Asian market. I was about to go to checkout when you caught my eye. You looked incredibly beautiful with a nice smile and slightly spooky style. I walked down an aisle that you were on and pretended to look for something. You noticed me and asked If I needed help. We talked for a minute while you tried to help. Unfortunately, I was a goof and got flour all on the front of my shirt so I wrapped around the corner to wipe it off. I was hoping to pick back up our conversation but then I noticed you head to checkout.

This is a long shot but you’ve been on my mind.

If u see this-u know who I am. Let’s talk.
