A Week In Denver Craigslist Missed Connections

Although dining rooms and bars are filled with many happy couples, they are also inhabited by lovesick diners looking to catch the eye of that special someone. Sometimes, these people take to Craigslist to try and find that guy or girl who they saw from across the dining room, but weren’t able to muster the courage to say something to. Here now are a few restaurant missed connections (posted as written) — perhaps love is on the menu for these lonely people sometime soon.

Littleton Tavern (m4w): This seems a little sheepish to me, to be posting something like this here. Seems to me that if a guy had some courage there would be no need to post a "missed connection", lol. That being said, hitting on the bartender is never a good idea, especially when they're as busy as you were. Hell, there wasn't really a missed connection, but I had to try in some small way to say this: you were, by far, the most breathtaking woman in the whole place. You have such an incredible, understated, soft beauty. I know that sounds completely trite, but it's the only way I can think of to describe how I saw you. The Tavern isn't really my sort of place so I ended up just hangin around waiting for my friends toward the end of the bar. You had to ask my name a couple of times over the noise, and I asked you for water. Not much to go on, I know.

Casa Bonita (m4w): I know these things are a real long shot but you were my server tonight at Casa Bonita, I was with 4 other guys and I was sitting next to the BIG guy. But anyways Ive always had a thing for Redheads and I thought you were beautiful and I wanted to leave my number but that doesn't work I don't think. But if you happen to see this please respond and lets talk. Put your name in the subject line as I saw on the receipt you spell it differently from others with your name.

Black-eyed Pea (m4w):Hey, we met today while we were filling out applications and waiting to be interviewed. We talked about our jobs, what you do for school. And that long drive you make daily for both. You were really cool and i wanted to get your number but as i was leaving you were in an interview and i couldnt interrupt it. Tell me what kind of ear rings you had on, or that embarrassing thing that happened before we moved rooms. Hope to talk again.

El Diablo (m4m): You work at el diablo. I think you are extremely sexy. You have a faux hawk and kinda look like adam levine... Hit me up if you wanna connect.

1UP (m4w): Sarah from stockshow, we were playing jenga on Sunday night! Your friend wanted me to come hang out with you guys. I gave my number to your friends boyfriend I really wanted you guys to call me for the iron chef team.
I had fun with you guys and hope youll call! LOL i only rap if im super wasted. [sic]

Buzz Cafe (m4w): You made my hot chocolate last night. I think you are the cats meow!

Hooters (m4w): You were in there around noon today. You were with a bigger girl with tats and her hat on backwards. You had blue sweats on with something written across the ass but I didn't notice what it said cuz your ass was keeping me busy. We definitely noticed each other and damn id like to get my hands on you. Repeatedly!
