Welcome to Missed Connections! Pop quiz: what color are your pants? Did you know without looking? If so, you might be able to meet some cuties at the Wawa next time you’re out. In all seriousness though, if you’re looking to meet someone, it’s never a bad idea to leave the house wearing really killer shoes.
But maybe you’re just here for the fun times. If so, don’t worry, we’ve got plenty, from all across the state. From raw bars on the seaside in Virginia Beach to a Walmart parking lot in Front Royal and gas pumps down in Ridgeway, everybody’s feeling the love. I heard on NPR the other day that “hot vax summer” is just a bunch of hype, but you’d never know it by reading Craigslist this week.
Of course, everybody talks a big game from behind a computer screen. How many of you are willing to cross the line from online to IRL interaction? Not that we’re encouraging such things — we’ve seen way too many crashes and burns over the years. Maybe discretion really is the better part of valor.
Holler if you hear me, Virginia.
I was walking down Cary Street.
You were standing out in front of the Byrd Theater. I interrupted your conversation with friends to complimented your shoes. I’d love to meet you for coffee or drink after work.
You have short blonde hair, a terrific smile and a great pair of sandals.
pulled up to the window and caught you smacking the drink machine into service
We chatted and I left you blushing
Let’s meet and chat
Just damn. You were waiting for your food and I was ordering a drink. That vibe was strong. You threw me off of my morning flow in a good way.
If you know what color your pants were, hit me up.
Near Woodlake,you were a black guy wearing yellow running shoes, mustache, and dark complexio. You started singing in the bathroom to the overhead music. You were flirting with me but I was with a friend in the car. I am a white preppy guy wearing jeans, burgundy polo shirt, brown running shoes and Rayban glasses with a black mask. I thought you were hot and would love to meet you. Hope you see this…
I ran past you on King St on Friday afternoon. You’re very attractive. As I ran up the hill, you caught up to me as I slowed. Was too shy to chat, plus I was exhausted.
Would like to chat. Maybe we can go walking together again.
Me: white male, 50.
You: white female.
Black banging car
Show me what you got??
Damn…..damn……damn! You are one fine looking woman. I loved watching you walk and when ours eyes met, I was smiling like a drunk fish in a tank of tequila! Let me know when your grocery shopping again……I’d love to run my cart into yours!
Cute girl in a blue dress that smiled at me at the antique store in Ruckersville earlier today. I wanted to ask for your number, but I just got out of a relationship. So I wasn’t sure I was ready and now I really wish I had.
unlikely you’ll come across this, but you were complimenting me on my tattoos; at first I didn’t think anything about it but you seemed almost persistent? you have long hair and were with the homies, you fine as hell boy. Trying to get to know you, I should’ve said something.
I know this is a real long shot, but with no other options here I go. This morning (7/20) I stopped to get gas at the Sheetz. Parked next to a guy who was driving a red Chevy pickup getting gas too. We started a quick conversation, you know the one where we really didn’t say anything but being nice to each other. This one was a little different though, I thought you wanted to take the conversation in another direction but didn’t. I WANTED TOO AS WELL! I was driving a black Ram Dually. I am the tall guy with the grey goatee. You were the tall guy with dark hair with a really short beard. Get with me on here! I wanna meet you. We could have a good time together, doing stuff.
You moved ! You were such a delight to have as a balcony neighbor!
I wish I would have known!!
We high fived because I didn’t smack you… Despite my over-gesticulating. You got away before I could get your number.
