I sometimes do when I’m bored, but not that often. I have a friend who actually browses them for herself quite frequently. I think she has found herself on there twice, but I’m convinced that she puts the ads up herself LOL. They’re just way too weird, and I don’t see how it could happen so often. Though she is trying to start a modeling career in NYC, so maybe there really are just a lot of weirdos!

My friend and I browsed the ads once. People are such pervs! Then, we found two ads from male friends of ours. They were both claiming to want to meet a guy to have a relationship with, but they they posted under “Casual Encounters”. They both put a picture of themselves (nothing lewd).

I have browsed since a couple times just for kicks.

When I lived in Boston and was single, I would look at Missed Connections to see if maybe they were talking about me, lol. I was also amused by the Rants & Raves section, which was really just a spot where everyone bitched about everything. Tres amusant.

SO and I were looking at cars the other night and I asked him if he ever looked at them…he hadn’t so we looked through some (I used to look when I was single and of course never find anything-those were desperate, drunk moments haha).

He couldn’t believe that they existed!

@2beemrs:  I always check out the “missed connections” section on craigslist… I just think its so strange/creepy/interesting – because its such a LONG SHOT…

I wonder if anyone has ever actually made a connection with who they were actually looking for

@2beemrs:  yep- that & the missed connections! I do it at work though. I live in a pretty small area & have actually known a few of the missed connections they were looking for. Otherwise, they are usually just too hilarious! Here’s  a sampling of our local CL missed connections today:

 

 Why do I have to pee in that cup? – m4w (Arcata)

Same name, different illness. You – really sexy nurse, me – wondering why I would have to pee in that cup…but I would have for you 🙂

 

 

 perfectly content (my ass)

i seen my reflection in a glass door today and was like “oh ya im this fuckin guy” then whent in to fuck with some bullshit cus of some other bullshit but got turned anfd pointed across the street where ihad to go get some yogurt for the granola i hvnt been able to eat so I could get cash back to get the signature so i could seend the letter back to atlanta to get 3000 dollars

@Billsgirl:  I couldn’t remeber what the ad said so i asked him. Apparently HE KEPT IT ALL THESE YEARS.

See Below:

 I am a single black woman looking for a black man. I have been single for awhile now and i would like to find a companion. Someone who is kind and wants to be close. I am honest and respectful. a truly loving and caring woman. I have been hurt pretty badly, so i am very careful. I hope to find someone looking for almost the same things. If you want to know more about me just ask. I don’t play games so i prefer you didn’t either. 


The ad was posted at 12pm. He responded at 1pm by 2pm it was deleted. It never had another reponse.

@2beemrs:  I used to like reading missed connections! But no, I haven’t read in a while. Now if I’m browings CL it’s for cheap wedding decor.
