It’s that time once again — time for the Missed Connections, where every week we hear from a broad swath of Virginia — the hopeful, the forlorn, and of course, the kiiiinda creepy.
This week, we learn that backyard showers are apparently not just for beach houses anymore — although if you have one, you better stay vigilant, because your neighbors might just be watching. And it seems that in a certain Carytown bar, the jello shots have been flowing like water. Also, we get an introduction to textspeak poetry, which seems like a Generation Z literary movement on the cusp of exploding into full flower.
People are meeting up in all kinds of places this week — cookie factories, urology waiting rooms, and always, always, Wawa. By the way, shout out to the guy who doesn’t ask girls out while they’re working — you’re doing it right.
Get your checkup, Virginia.
Dude! Just moved into OH and saw you showering in your backyard. Hot! Company? SWM wants to kno.
Looking for a female or even a male who can give me a full body check.. I don’t like going to a doctors office. So if you have any medical back ground that would be great. Email me ASAP!! Looking for this afternoon if possible
So many people who don’t seem to live in the moment and fill their lives with pursuits that only bring stress. I don’t need a big house or a fancy car, a big job title or the trivial things in life. I just need my hippie Goddess to come into my life now that I am finally ready. I’m here for you!
Let’s live our lives in the moment, enjoying the simple things and focusing on what’s truly important in life – Love.
We chatted while in line for the back bar. You were ahead of me and bought 10 jello shots, 5 for me and my friends. You wouldn’t let me repay you and then you were gone. I owe you a drink or 5.
You work for Starbucks. You’re super friendly with a geeky personality. I like your gray hat. I see you a lot. I don’t know if I’m writing this because I’m sad today or if I like you. I think you might like me.
I don’t ask girls out while they’re working. You should ask me for my number next time I come in.
Can Can Sat 06/01. You on date, me solo at bar. Locked eyes many times.
M for F. Tall and blonde. You were with your family, couldn’t speak. Wow, you are Gorgeous. It’s crazy, because I had just posted about you yesterday! Please reply.
You asked me what was good while we were standing in line, the lady behind me answered haha. I rode off on my motorcycle without getting your number. Tell me your name and what you ordered so i know it’s you.
Whenever u feel it
You feel as tho no one is
Kno that u r right w/n urself
Everything u want u need to do it ur self.
I looked just a little too long (alas); it was worth it though because you’re hot and interesting. I said hi but really wanted to ask you out and get your number. I floundered.
You had a sweet Ford Truck that your dad bought. You were sweet enough to make conversation with me and tell me all about it. Sorry that I didn’t make more conversation with you!
If you were only ‘drumming up some votes’, then I won’t seek you out again.
However, if you’re single, available and would like to talk more, let’s!
I’m interested in getting to know you!
To the cute lady wearing a skull t-shirt and white converse….your laugh and piercing blue eyes paralyzed me. You were there around 3:30 on Friday….tell me what you helped me find so I know it’s you. If this does not work I just have to hope to see you there again.
On Tuesday you were wandering the Virginia Urology parking lot trying to figure out how to get inside. You were 20 minutes late.
I enjoyed talking with you and your mother as you checked out. I hope you are feeling better. Please let me know
I see you most mornings. I know I’m not your type but you seem like an interesting person. Lets grab a drink or dinner and get to know each other.
M4w Was in Wawa on Thursday afternoon getting a milkshake and you very seductively said “ yummy”. When I said I can’t wait to taste it I was more thinking that about you.
You were an older sexy woman wearing white athletic leggings. You looked damn sexy and totally had my attention the whole time I was in the store.
If this is you tell me what I was wearing and maybe I can treat you to a milkshake sometime.
To the young lady in the rainbow stripe dress. I was backing up and you were going to the car beside me.vYou are a beautiful woman even though it was just a quick glance it was enough to make me wish I’d at least said Hello. What did I look like? Or my car let know your thoughts or having a conversation
I always see you walking your dog. We connect every time. What do I look like?
Was just wondering if there was a Christy Mack in or around The Burg. If so please contact me I have been trying to find you.
We had a very good and mutually beneficial conversation last week, I forgot to get your email address. You were so informative! Hoping to meet again.
Looking for my missed connection woman. I’d love to see your tattoo again. Let’s catch up and see if we can get together.
You were with your friends and you found your keys that you had dropped. I said hello and couldn’t stop staring lol. Let me know what color you were wearing
Looking for the guy from Richmond I chatted w on the smoking patio at the MGM. I told you a place you should check out in downtown Richmond. You had on a sweatsuit and nice sneakers. Tell me I was wearing and I’ll know it’s you!
I was in there a couple months ago. I never spoke to you but I was hoping you were looking at me like i was looking at you. A tall, good looking long dark haired (at the time)woman, I’m a white guy, 6’0, skinny. Short brown hair, dark beard. If you think this is you, please respond. You seemed to be a manager and you treated me nicely
Saw you walking up the hill at the park on the corner of Franklin & 21st today. You were probably 25-35 years old with short, cute dark hair. Shave and regrown almost. Dark red shirt, white shorts (maybe?). Listening to white earbuds.
Pretty far up the hill and didn’t want to chase you down! You looked cute, wanted to get in touch.
You were the very goodlooking stud Deputy at Chipotle. We made eye contact a few times, you winked when other deputy went for drink refill. I was cleancut military type guy sitting at next high table. Hope you see this. Up for similar type, to see what’s under that uniform and what I could do for you, NSA.
Saw you at foodlion around 2ish and you made eye contact with me…. Your probably married or in a relationship because you are just handsome 😊 and gave off a good vibe! If not please reply and tell me what color my shirt was….. Really hope you see this….
