Best Of VA Missed Connections February 3 – February 9

by | Feb 9, 2021 | WTF?!

Welcome to another week of Missed Connections, where we all have our guilty pleasures. For some of us, it’s all those “Karen freakout” compilations on YouTube; for others, it’s running a post through a thesaurus before hitting submit, or quoting David Lee Roth lyrics. Actually, no one should feel guilty about that one.

Regardless of your pleasures, guilty or otherwise, we’re all united in one thing: a desire to find entertainment and maybe even a real connection within the wilderness of Craigslist. It’s starting to seem like every other post is a spammer or a fake, and the discontent within the denizens of Virginia’s many Craigslist pages is very real. On the other hand, some people are still out here giving us the content we keep coming back for: Colorado ladies in tall black boots, people who wear Gucci to the grocery store, and folks crazy enough to either give or catch rides with strangers to a ski resort in the middle of a pandemic. I swear, it’s like y’all WANT to catch COVID.

By the way, if you’re still looking for someone you had a one night stand with nearly two decades ago, the Missed Connections might be the place for you. God knows I see enough of those kinds of ads week after week, this week being no exception.

Don’t give up, Virginia.

Specific guy (Downtown)

Man, you sure are a good friend. I don’t know how to express what a good friend you are but I have some ideas. Your new suggested drink of choice feels like an invitation to cross the invisible line. Is it? Send a reply with the answer one way or the other if you see this even if we need to pretend face to face that this communication never happened. OK if it’s not an invitation, brother, I’ll respect the line. Sure hope it was though.

ISO Non-stop talker, what a rocker… (Yorktown)

…blue-eyed murder in a size five dress.

Karen videos (Richmond)

I have been watching “Karen” videos on YouTube lately. I find them amusing as well as burden lifting. They help me to feel less hard on myself for times when I have been a jerk because these people are way worse than I have ever been. Also, the videos cause me to recognize the times when I have acted like an entitled brat and I want to call my mom to apologize but I can’t because she dead…

friendly coed in gucci kroger (south main)

you helped get an item from the top shelf for me. you were very friendly this old man was very appreciative

Missing connection with craigs list (Front Royal)

What can I say? I miss the old craigs list. The one with ads from real people. Its amazing to me that so many ads get flagged here, yet those ones from sites, you know the ones, stay up. Im a guy and like meeting all sorts of people, but thats not going to happen anymore .

Question for the board (Fairfax)

Every message that I post is removed

All 25 of them and counting

Not one of them is any different than the others posted here. Why ???

Anyone else have this problem ???

Why? (Richmond)

Why is it easier to find a connection for salacious carnal delights than it is to find a connection for illegal, but barely, viridescent florets? I’m really missing a reliable connection these days.

The most hapless outcome of my post is the fact I will not be able to, in good conscious, act upon any possible solutions this wonderful community may provide.

Why do I taunt myself? Can I make it to 2024? Sure, I could easily get my medicinal clearance, but even that doesn’t provide the product I really seek. Yet.

Am I the only one? 💚💚💚

Looking for a Florist (Midlothian)

The title says it all. I’ll pay for delivery.

Waved at you (N. Chesterfield)

Hi, I’m the lady in the Honda Pilot that waved at you yesterday on Reams Road. I was hoping you’d stop so I could tell you that you’re brake light was out. You smiled and waved back, but I didn’t get to tell you. Trying to keep you from getting a fix it ticket.

For: Missisippi Man in Great Rig–Lady in Black Boots (Yorktown)

We were walking the Surrender Field when you came along. The handsome male partner that was with me is a good friend of mine, so this is not an illicit posting.

I’m originally from Colorado and will be returning soon. If you’re still around the area and would like to begin with friendly conversation and travel stories, I’d be happy to meet up with you AND your dog, too!

xx — the lady in tall black boots

We had 1 night in 2002 (Newport News)

I’m a guy who was at the Coast Guard training facility in Dec 2001 to January 2002. You were a short female with glasses and we had 1 night together. I know it’s a long shot….

Bealeton FoodLion JMU Sweatshirt (Bealeton Va)

Superbowl Sunday, Hey, since we “went to school together” i seemed to have lost your number? I certainly regret not asking for it!

Giant food Oakton (Oakton)

You said grey is ur favorite color and you like your men in sweatpants. Didn’t realize what you were referring to until I got to my car.

You were gone when I went back, please write me if you see this, I would like to keep the conversation going.

Hope to hear from you!!

Sweatpants and WRAP plans (Front Royal)

We have other lives, and I certainly don’t want to change that. But we seem to be attracted like magnets, and I really appreciate all the flirty exchanges. Honestly, I don’t even know how I could even approach this topic with you, but I really want that kiss.
Tell me how we know each other.

Snowshoe on 2/2 (Alexandria)

I caught a lift ride with you from ballhooter to the village a few days ago, you were in all black on your snowboard. I am still thinking of you, and I am grateful of our brief and friendly conversation. I regret that I did not tell you that you were attractive. I wish our paths cross again.
