If you’ve been a long-time reader of Echo Park, or you just like browsing through our Archives, you may be a fan of the Echo Park Missed Connections. We pull from the good ol’ section of the Los Angeles Craiglist and republish the stories of those who are pining away about a lost potential love from around Echo Park. Echo Park’s Missed Connections will post as long as the content is rated… let’s say, PG. Hey, maybe someone will get lucky in love!
Glasses Boy at Tacos Arizas – w4m – 26 – September 17, 2013
We were both eating tacos Monday night at the Arizas truck – mine was carnitas, but I don’t know what yours was. Their carnitas is really the best, so I hope it was carnitas.
I smiled at you. You smiled at me. Anyway, maybe we can watch each other eat tacos again, less surreptitiously.
Cute Waiter at Sage Vegan Bistro – m4m – September 16, 2013
You greeted me when I came in. You were wearing a nice fitting green V cut shirt. I was waiting for my friend to arrive. You have such an awesome smile, and adorable body.
I was wearing a gray/green tank top and thick black rimmed glasses. If by some chance you see this, please email me!

I wolf-whistled as you were crossing the street, you got knocked down – m4w – 30 – September 12, 2013
Blonde girl, blue pencil skirt, black heels, white with blue patterned shirt. You were crossing Sunset Blvd in Echo Park last Friday morning. You had a folder under your arm and looked in a rush. I was the guy with the ponytail who whistled and shouted ‘yeah baby’. You turned and looked like you were about to shout something back when a Knudsen Milk truck knocked you about six feet in the air. I waited with you until the ambulance arrived. As you slipped out of consciousness, I’m sure that you winked at me. Fate works in mysterious ways. Drop me a line if you see this. Hope that you are back on your feet soon.
