Welcome to this week’s Missed Connections, where the kind of sensible dating advice you’d expect to be a no-brainer (“pee first”) turns out to be a strike against you. Of course, this is why dating over the internet turned out to be such a great idea — because we’re all total weirdos, and it’s much easier to admit that from the other side of a computer screen.
This week’s MC installment also includes some truly great ones: Texas Beach cruisers who can’t get decade-old encounters out of their heads, street photographers falling in love with passing joggers, and some flirtation between UberEats and GrubHub drivers… does that sound like the beginning of a 21st-century version of West Side Story to anyone else?
One quick word of advice for y’all — never try to get somewhere with a woman by telling her she needs to smile more. No one wants to date someone who says the same annoying shit their boss from the McDonalds they worked at in high school used to say all the time.
On a more positive note, shouts out to the anime nerds flirting over Evangelion. Y’all sound like my kind of people.
Get weird, Virginia.
…a mature woman with a full bladder. In Richmond at the end of March.
I am an established man who has an opinion tonight. I think plus sized women, or women who have a little extra are beautiful. I have absolutely nothing against women who are on the smaller size. I just think it’s something so awesome about a beautiful plus sized woman. Especially one who is sweet on the inside as well. Just showing you women with a little extra some love tonight.
The dog days of Winter have all the cute toes bundled up in boots and shoes. I long to see the warm days of Spring as the warm air has the sight of sweet feet for guys like me to enjoy. Care to share yours Ladies ? A warm set of hands await. Mature male with gentle touch. Shoe size in subject line will get my attention.
Tuesdays were your days off and you would come to Texas Beach to sunbathe. This was about 10 yrs. ago – long shot – I know. You were always ‘suits required’ & I was always ‘optional’ We ran into eachother lolling on the rocks maybe 4 times, nods and hellos, never did any fooling around though – drat it! There was strong attraction btw us. In parting I always exclaimed the same thing to you and you grinned like the sun. Maybe you’re still around town. If this seems familiar, what did I say about you? M4M just so ya know…
Bear daddy at Food Lion we flirted in store the ended up we parked beside each other. I came out after you and you waved at me. Grrr. I got in car with my significant other but you sat there staring over. Interested?
I was at the top of the pedestrian bridge by 1st street taking pictures. You walked past me after what seemed like a jogging session. We greeted each other and made eye contact. We shared a moment but I was too taken back by your beauty and glow to muster up the courage to stop you and chat you up. I feel like such a dork doing this lol, but I can’t help it as I’m a hopeless romantic. It’s funny how a brief moment of nervousness and inaction, can lead to hours or even days worth of regret. At the very least it was a great lesson to stay present and live in the moment.
So I leave this here in case you one day come across it, and our chance to connect gets a second chance. You would remember me by my unique ride.
There’s never a more isolated feeling in a relationship , than being alone. It’s a situation that seems to only worsen , no communication , no connection , your voice and opinions go unnoticed and the physical chemistry doesn’t exist. The arguments escalate and the emotional gap widens. The question remains , am I the only one who feels this way ?
Can’t remember your name, but I was the guy waiting for food to deliver for Uber Eats. You were delivering for GrubHub. You commented on my Chelsea jacket and started a conversation with me. You asked if I was a coach. I had to get the staffs attention so I could deliver the food, but I wanted to chat more with you. Sorry I walked away without finishing our conversation, but I felt awkward waiting for you. If you want to hang out sometime, let me know.

You were behind me in line this morning absolutely Beautiful but you need to smile 🙂
You are the nice looking middle aged brunette in a blue tight sweater walking her Frenchie with her girlfriend on Saturday early afternoon.
I am middle aged bald man with gray beard. Our smiles got warmer and our eyes connected longer each time we passed.
I would love to see you smile some more….
I didn’t know anyone else at the HH. You caught my eye, and I think you noticed me noticing. Just as I was about to come over and say hi when I got railroaded by another alum. I would love to introduce myself properly!
I know you will never read this, but I just have to say I always love it when you’re working……I have been smitten the very first time I saw you! You dressed up one time for a wine promotion and you’re outfit was such a turn on!……just sayin! I wanted to come through your line last night (Friday, 1/24), but I was pressed for time and it was too long to wait. Until next time I get to see that beautiful read hair and shapely body, I will have to just rely on my own devices…….
What’s up bro. You were walking around today sporting at nice bulge in your shorts. I couldn’t stop watching. Let me know if you want to meet up somewhere to show off again.
You were in front of me in dollar general up 301 yesterday. You were an older black male..fine as WINE! If you see this (which I’m sure you won’t) tell me what my coat looked like
Long blond hair works at commonwealth physicians west end to bad I only get to see you only every couple months 🙂
You came in after me to pickup wine on Saturday around noon. You offered to carry my case but I said this is why I lift. You were hot and nice and I’m kicking myself for not taking you up on that offer.
You were reading a book on sofa next to wall. I was across in the corner sofa. I know we saw each other. Something about you.
I know this is a long shot but, nothing ventured, nothing gained. I was at the Starbucks on Dominion Boulevard and Broad Street a little after noon on Monday the 21st. You’re a beautiful brunette with amazing eyes and were sitting by the front window with another woman and two men. It looked like you were in some sort of professional meeting otherwise I would have said something. We exchanged several glances and a smile as I left. I would really like to see you again. If you remember this, for lack of a better term, encounter and are interested let me know.
We meet at Walmart you were shopping for a dress and I was shopping for a pair of pants
You said you were lonely and feeling alone
Lets meet for coffee and be alone together
You were on the other side of the pump from me. We met eyes several times. You walked into Dunkin after you were done. Had NC plates but UMD parking pass. Thought you were hot but didn’t know what to say.
We chatted for 10 minutes or so this morning. You are such a kind soul and impressive person, it made my day. Thanks. Hope you have a great day and a great rest of your week.
We exchanged eyes several times on Saturday night. You were busy but I wanted you to know I felt something. Let me know if you did too.
We were both out for a walk near the research park on Friday. You’re tall, slender, and beautiful with long dark hair.
I didn’t say a word to you. If I see you again I won’t make that mistake twice.
I asked about the object in the case, and it was a gourd flute. So . . . would you like to make a new friend?
We met in city center market place. talked. BOTH agreed to try something new as bros with no hoes.
I tried what you had on you – and didnt get a chance for you to try what I wanted. message me
Doubt if you see this but if you do this may could be start to something fun. Your short white bbw female beautiful rosey smile I’m tall black muscular guy. We both work for the largest bowling company in the world. Our cubicles are not far from one another if we both were to stand up in our cubicles we would be right across from each other. I think you’re very cute but wouldn’t want to cause any disruption of any kind in the office. If you happen to read this leave a note on my desk saying yes, or set up a 30 minute meeting invite in the interview room, or say I think so in passing.
