Sometimes love will catch you off guard at the most inconvenient times. Say, when you're heading out of the Starbucks door with dozens of coffees in tow. Other times, it's just too hard to muster up the courage to say "hello" or pass over a phone number. So instead, these Denverites took to Craigslist to find that special guy or girl that caught their eye. Here now are a few restaurant missed connections, just in time for the holidays. Baby, all they wanted for Christmas.... was a Craigslist response.

YOU ASKED IF I WANTED ROOM IN MY COFFEE AND I PRACTICALLY FAINTED
Coffee shop hottie!!!!! - m4w - 40 (Crema): "Your hair is like burning hell-fire. Your asked me if I wanted room in my coffee and I practically fainted. Your eyes are a piercing sapphire, as if designed to pierce my armor. I wish to spend my free time staring into those eyes, drinking tea, telling tales of my horrible yet not too distant past. I am a creature of the night, if you would like to join me for a drink we can meet in the ballroom of the Brown Palace. I'm tall, muscular, educated, mysterious and most importantly rich."

STARBUCKS LOVERS?
You flipped your hair at me in Starbucks - m4w - 25 (Wadsworth and 80th):I think you caught me looking at you. Don't blame me, you are a stunning woman. Then it seemed that you and your friend had a good laugh about it. You 'flipped' your hair at me, after telling your friend it would grab my attention. It did. You are a beautiful woman. I know it was all in jest, but if you are actually interested somewhere deep down email me. Perhaps we can go get a cup of coffee.

LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED A REAL MAN
Sam's No. 3 - m4w - 25: "we were sitting across from eachother. you kept catching me looking. you were meeting someone there, seemed like a blind date. i was with my friend. let me know if you need a real man in your life... ;)"

WINE AND WHISKEY
Hey, wine drinking man - w4m - 49 (Aurora): "You should probably ask me out. Wine and whiskey. How could we go wrong"

TWO HOT CHOCOLATES
Dropped Lid, Paid For the Drinks - m4w (Highlands Ranch): "My daughter and I loved the drinks, two hot chocolates actually, that was paid for by you. Thank you. If I can ever return the favor, let me know. Otherwise I will pay it forward the next time I go."

MY SMILE JUST GETS BIGGER
Panera smile - w4m (Aurora): "I see you almost every week sometimes more. Every time I see you walk though that door my smile just gets bigger. It doesn't matter what kind of day I have you always seem to make it better. Every time we talk I get to know another piece of who you are but can never seem to bring myself to tell you that I have a crush on you. I know there is a small chance that your going to see this but if you do reply with your name and mine and the location of the Panera that we met"
