S nude photos from craigslist
On the way back to the counter, my heart thumped in my chest like an angry judge's gavel, and a future—our future—flickered in my mind. She's the one who led me here to Craigslist and these Missed Connections.
But as I cast this virtual coin into the wishing well of the cosmos, it occurs to me, after a million what-ifs and a lifetime of lost sleep, that our connection wasn't missed at all.
“I know there’s girls like that out there, I just keep missing them and my curiosity is getting the better of me.” Not all of those searching for love have such a way with words, though.
Craigslist is known for many things, but perhaps the most famous is its Missed Connections section.
Amorous city dwellers who couldn't work up the nerve to say something to that cute stranger they were eye-flirting with on the train can post a message detailing the time and place, hoping said stranger will do the same.
“It could be a treat or a present for the love(s) of your life, or it could be a bit of fun after a night on the town.” Other unusual job opportunities include a “risque photo shoot” — specifically for qualified nurses. Those looking for love also use colourful ways to find ‘The One’.
One poster, who calls himself Tom, took to the ‘missed connection’ section of the site after a failed romantic encounter in a city supermarket.
I didn't mention Vietnam, but I got the sense that you could see there was a war waging inside me. The sky will glower, and the clouds will hide the sun, and the rain will begin to fall. Whether this story is real or not, it's sadness and sweetness certainly took a simple message board to epic new heights.
