Although the dining rooms of the city 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—perhaps love will also be on the menu for these romantic Denverites sometime soon.
LEFT MY SUIT JACKET AND CELL PHONE
Gozo & The Hornet - m4w (SOBO): "Hi there. I had a wonderful evening, but I hope that I was not too forward. Left my suit jacket and cell phone. I would welcome the opportunity to see you, my jacket, and my cell phone again soon. Please send me an email!"
NOT ABLE TO ACT ON IT
waiter at Humboldt - m4m - 40 (denver): "I was at one of your tables yesterday for lunch and felt like we might have made a connection. But I was with coworkers and not able to act on it. You probably won't see this but worth a shot. Tell me something about the group I was with so I know it is you"
WHAT IS A MISSED CONNECTION IF NOT PRESUMED?
Crema Coffee Shop - m4w (Larimer): "You work there. I come by frequently, but only recently resumed my visits. It would be quite presumptuous to think you are interested in men and specifically me. But what is a missed connection if not presumed?"
DON'T WANT 8500 REPLIES, JUST ONE
Zio Romolos - w4m (32nd and Zuni): "The irony of posting this got the better of me. LOL. Have never posted here before. . ..this is hilarious. I, however don't want 8500 replies, just one :) It was so nice talking to you, I was bummed you left. Really hope you didn't lose my card and that you use it to gimme a call. I'll throw it out there to the universe and whatever happens. . .happens!"
LONGEST CRAZIEST LONG SHOT
Green Russell Saturday - m4w (GR): "Longest craziest long shot (aren't they all). You were there with two friends and we passed each other going out. Stopped to chat for a minute. you were very attractive, around 40 like me and there was a quick connection but our friends were going in opposite directions so we couldn't talk long. If you wish there was more time or that we had exchanged info, oh and by some chance you see this or one of your friends passes it on, shoot me a note about what you were going to be doing that night."
THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN ON EARTH
Brunette at Carmine's on Penn - m4w: "We locked eyes several times and I thought you were the most beautiful woman on earth. We were both with our families and didn't talk but I'd love to see you again."
