Craigslist Intriguing MC of the Day

I'm a big fan of the Missed Connections section on craigslist. I try to lurk on there daily, seeing if I was at the grocery store or streetcar at the same time as a MC. Did that one-second glance I shared with that creepy guy on the subway mean as much to him as it did to me? Am I the girl in the blue dress going northbound on Tuesday night who was looking fine? The only way to know for sure is to check the MCs.

My friend Velvet found an interesting Missed Connection for me.

(UPDATE & AUTHOR'S NOTE: Oh dear. It appears this post expired before I discovered the art of taking screenshots. So in order for this entry not to be a complete waste, I will do my best to recreate this Missed Connection post. Ahem.)*

"Saw you at the eaton centre today. You walked by me, you were wearing some kind of black yoga pants, maybe loulou lemon, i dont know. I didnt see your face.
So if you can meet me at the eaton centre again today, you get a reward lol."

Now, I'd really like to believe that MCs can sometimes work out and some possible love connections can be made, that the chemistry between two strangers can be so strong that you both feel it right away, BAM. It's a nice thought. Sadly, I think most people on the MC section might just be out to get laid.

Not this guy. He's so unsuperficial, so willing to look past appearances, cares so little about looks that he doesn't even mind that he never got a good look at her face. Doesn't matter to him. I guess when love is real, it doesn't need a face. Just a good pair of spandex, ass-hugging yoga pants.

I'm really hoping that it works out for him. Never mind that the fact that he didn't see her face means that she almost certainly didn't see him at all, never mind that the Eaton Centre is a huge mall filled with hundreds of people, never mind that almost all girls own a pair of LuLuLemon yoga pants (not me, though--so that rules me out; sometimes life is really sad)--dammit, I want this MC to work.

So girls, if you were anywhere near the Eaton Centre this week and own a pair of pants, respond to this ad. Make this happen. An added bonus (beside the obvious of scoring this catch of a guy)? "You get a reward lol." Like he could sweeten this deal any more.

*I realize in my recreation that I'm lacking the author's particular essence, but hopefully you can get a look into the awesomeness of his post. The kind of guy you want to bring home to Mom. Sophisticated. I hope it worked out for him.
(please note that for future craigslist posts, I will be taking screenshots the moment they're posted, though it's pretty fun to try to recreate posts I read a month ago).


  1. Great Posting! I love these craigslist columns you've been sharing. I've been having a good time getting suntanned lately, but I think a vampire bit my neck since there's a red painful flushed streak. Oh, it would be nice to get that script.

  2. Thanks, I'm glad you're enjoying the blog! It's always nice to hear from my readers. Sorry to hear about your sunburn and your neck, but at least vampires are pretty in right now. I'd recommend some aloe.

    Script is...on its way.
