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.
CERTAINLY SOMEWHAT OLDER THAN I AM
Pactimo poppy jersey, blonde, and freckled - m4w (Denver Bike Cafe): "I saw you at the Denver Bike Cafe today in the little outdoor enclosure, watching the Pro Challenge go by. You're certainly somewhat older than I am, but you're a stunner in that jersey and those freckles of yours are awesome. I wasn't in my riding gear, but if you'd care to get out and pedal sometime, get in touch. We made eyes a couple times, but we were both pretty caught up in our respective groups of friends."
BLONDE WITH NOSE RING
Friday night Hapa Sushi - w4w (2nd Ave): "Shot in the dark here....You: Sitting by the window with a brunette with dreads. Blonde, nose ring, gauged ears, ridiculously hot. Me: Tall brunette in a Broncos jersey that struggled keeping my eyes off you. How do I get you eating sushi with me? :)"
EXCHANGED A FEW GLANCES
Shells and sauce interest? - m4w (Shells and sauce, saturday ~6:30pm): "I sat at the next table over, outside. We exchanged a few glances and I think there may be interest...? Certainly from my side. I would've loved to introduce myself but it just seemed too awkward. If there is any interest, reach out and let's go have a cup of coffee."
THE FIRST IMPRESSION WAS PRETTY GOOD
Baker Street Friday Night - w4m (Westminster): "Petite brunette looking for tall very handsome gentleman that was wearing a blue and white plaid shirt at Baker Street Westminster Friday night - We dance once but I was to shy even with coaxing from someone in your party to go ask you to dance again and you never came back over to ask me to dance. Tell me who the person was that was trying to coax me and let's talk? I know this is a very long shot but just maybe I can get a second chance I think the first impression was pretty good from both side :)"
NIGHTS LIKE TONIGHT I WISH I WAS SINGLE
Gin mill - m4w - 29 (Arvada) : "I met you tonight and think we hit it off. There was the tension between us but couldn't act on it. I'm not sure what could come of this but I was into you tonight. Nights like tonight I wish I was single. Tell me a about our night so I know it's you, I would like to chat with you."
