Missed Connections: Nice Gnome, Baby

The Missed Connections forum on Craigslist is a wasteland of terrible poetry, dick pics, and whining, but among the detritus are some truly fascinating, funny, and occasionally sweet entries. The following are highlights from the Western Mass Missed Connections forum, sans detritus.

I flashed you on the highway. — w4m

We drove next to each other for a while. I had my tits out. I made sure you noticed me playing with that. We got off at the same exit and I followed you to the gas station. I politely declined your offer. I was really going to my boyfriend’s house, and I was already late. But I did want to fuck you in your office. If this is you, and you’re seriously interested, we can meet up. I was just pretty tied up today. I’ll know it’s you if you can tell me what you were driving and what exit we got off at.

Nike Jacket — m4m (Pittsfield)

I thought of you today when I was doing a sweep for Goodwill and saw the Nike jacket you left behind the last time we met. I did not give it away in hopes you come calling for it. April 21, 2017


Ahh! pretty people! — mw4w (Downtown northampton)

We’re four students, two guys and two girls. The tallest guy was in the front and you almost walked into him, except it was kinda his fault, since he was looking at his phone. He looked up just in time, before you shouted “Aah! Pretty people!” We kept walking and laughed at probably an unnecessary volume. We regret not turning around and talking to you immediately, but we each want to thank you for giving us a wave of confidence that will last for months. If you want to talk, we’re all happy to meet you. April 20, 2017
