April 24, 2010: Lauren from Westwood at Shortstop! – m4w – 23
Lauren! I talked to you at shortstop last night! You told me you were from westwood and that it was your first time out in echo park. You promised me you’d check missed connections, and I super hope this works. Email me! It will be amazing if this works! Yeeeeeeeeaaaaah!

April 27, 2010: I miss you – m4w – 47
I miss you, Kamal. I wish you’d call I would love to hear your voice. Let me know how you are. You know who this is.

April 28, 2010: Guy on Bike Echo Park – m4m
You were the hot guy on your bike at the corner of echo park blvd/sunset today around 1:45 by the BofA. Thought we made some eye contact as I turned corner. Wow, hot.

May 1, 2010: Blue Civic, white sunglasses – m4w
Yesterday afternoon, on Alvarado, under the 101 freeway, we were stuck waiting for the light. Cute hair, cute smile.

You ordered a bagel today and it didn’t work out! But there is more to the story and it is a riot.

Ships that pass in the night and speak each other in passing; Only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness…” Oh Henry, if only you were alive to witness the poetry of these modern-day words of longing.

March 27, 2010: You: “There’s A First Time For Everything!” – m4w – 30
You made the cardinal mistake of going to a party: Don’t bring your own cock blocker! My gf and I tried to get you to come home with us but you didn’t drive yourself to the party and it would have been AWkard!

You giggled “There’s a first time for everything…!”  Is there? =)

March 27, 2010: Green Dress Around The Fire Pit! – 49
You asked me if I was going to try to sell you a used lamp on Craigslist. I have something way more interesting in mind.

March 27, 2010: Shortstop Friday Night – m4w
You were devastatingly cute. Brea (Bria?). Wish I could’ve ditched my friends and chatted. God, you’re adorable. I’ll be back looking for you.

March 26, 2010: Taix thursday night – m4w – 30
sitting outside when you came out for a cigarette. had a brief conversation about music, buses, and merlin and guinevere. i regret not asking for your phone number before you went back in. maybe you’ll see this?

Sometimes you don't catch the guy on the first try!

We’ve been toying around with the idea of re-posting any Missed Connections that occurred in Echo Park for a while now, but they can be few and far between. Well, I found a couple of gems from the past few days and thought I’d give them a little bit more exposure… and maybe help destiny out a little bit.

Cute girl at Masa (m4w) – Posted on Thursday, March 11 http://losangeles.craigslist.org/lac/mis/1640018969.html “I was studying with some friends and probably looking like quite the nerd with notecards in hand, but we made eye contact a couple of times. Right after leaving I kept complaining to my friend that I should’ve talked to you (ideally I would’ve been super suave and walked up to you, dropped my number and said “Hope this is your brother”). Really though, I hope that was your brother, friend, or platonic hipster roommate you were with. You were wearing a seafoam green vneck and I haven’t had anyone catch my eye like that in awhile. And now I am posting on Craigslist. Want to get coffee? Tell me something that lets me know it’s you.”

Short Stop last night (27) – Posted on Friday, March 12 http://losangeles.craigslist.org/lac/mis/1641063745.html “We sat at the end of the bar and made fun of [people] around us. We couldn’t understand why someone would wear a red sweater with no undershirt. You stepped outside for air but never came back. I hope to run into you Monday around the same time.”
