Best of VA Missed Connections January 30 – February 5

by | Feb 5, 2019 | RICHMOND NEWS, WTF?!

Our schizophrenic winter weather is striking once again, folks, but if you need someone to share your blanket, or to invite out to a picnic, the Missed Connections is probably the place for you. Especially if the divorce is final and you’re on Tinder ready to mingle!

Some of you are clearly not above making passes at married people, though, and while you’re unlikely to get much of anywhere with that, you might have more luck flirting with the cashier who sold you your Whopper or Grande Meal at lunch. It’s worth a shot, right?

This week we’ve also got people taking advantage of the chilly winter weather to flirt with moms at Ice Zone, and other people who might have been able to get farther if they could remember the name of the Frank Ocean album. Take heart, nerds — there might just be an ice-bearing Chipotle elf out there for you!

Without further ado, let’s dive in.

Charleston Girl Who couldn’t get out of 3 tickets (Patrick Henry Pub)

You sell dental equipment but would much rather set soundtracks for movies. We guessed every color for Frank Oceans album except its actual title. You have a Perfect smile (all natural). You don’t like thrills but I swear I can get you on a rollercoaster. I’m glad I moved over so I could sit next to you. HMU

Publix I asked you about your tatttoo (Glen allen)

You had blonde curly hair, a spiral taper in one ear, and black hoodie on. I asked you were you got your tattoo, I wish we talked more..

Saw you at Chipotle in Barracks (Chipotle)

You, big beefy man. Me, small tiny little elf. We caught eyes at the soda fountain. You, was getting a Diet Coke. Me, was getting a cup of only ice. I offered you an ice cube. You accepted. Didn’t get your name. If you see this, please email me back. I miss you

VCU Panda Express, Sunday (Richmond)

To the gorgeous girl behind the counter at Panda Express on super bowl Sunday, you seem like you could use a break from all the dumb questions and requests you had to deal with. I was in a hoodie, you noticed me chuckling at how absurd the whole situation was and hopefully it helped you shake off the stress for a minute. It’s a long shot that you’ll see this, but I’m not sure how to say anything without being the creep that asks you out while you’re at work

Auto Detailer Today (chesterfield)

You did a great job on my neighbors cars. Hopefully you can clean my cars and maybe have a drink. Respond with some details so that I know it is you.

burger king (parham and patterson)


you were the very friendly young cashier on sunday morning. i was the older customer. we both stared at each other. if interested contact me on here..


Looking for the right pear

You were a personable outgoing female shopping, you were probably early to mid 30’s. Short black hair and shaved on the sides, you were dancing at some point before you confronted me. Most beautiful woman ive have ever seen, and quite likeable. The only bad thing part about this is, you were married. Saw a ring on your finger. You had me thinking about you ever since i laid eyes on you. Hopefully i hear from you

Young black guy I met in the Arboretum (Arboretum)

We talked a little bit and you suggested going somewhere else to continue our conversation. I am the older white guy that was wearing the blue button up. I now wish we had went somewhere else. You wanted to show me something and I wanted to see it. What did you want to show me?

Looking for Evan (Hampton Roads)

This is a long shot, but…I saw you on Tinder earlier tonight. We actually met a couple of years ago, at a local restaurant. Got together a few times, then our personal situations/jobs became problematic. You have a very interesting career, and I work in the medical field. My divorce has been final over a year now.

I’d love to talk to you again, if you’re interested.

My Hopewell friend Brandy (Hopewell)

Hey brandy, I see you every month. I’ve wanted to give you my number the last 2 times but literally didn’t have the chance. If you see this msg me with my name in the subject. Let’s chill.

Spotted at Ice Zone Midlo (Johnston Willis)

Have seen you several times at Midlo Ice Zone. You’re the cute redhead with the alluring eyes and cute smile. Me SWM/dad. Looks like your daughter takes lessons or is coached? Buy you a drink?

Short white girl working counter at taco bell near Ft Lee (Prince George)

You we working the counter at taco bell last night. Friday night around 8 PM. You were short and had your hair pulled back in a pony tail. I was in drive through so didn’t have a chance to say anything to you. But you are so cute. We should go out for some coffee and get to know each other.
