Remember Missed Connections? Craigslist’s personal section was not only used by lonely stranger danger booty calls but it was a popular site where you could reach out semi-anonymously to the “cute girl on the N-Judah” who was reading Eat Pray Love on your commute to the FiDi. Or hit up that guy at Badlands you made out with but forgot if his name was Mark, Matt or Max. A tiny desperate attempt to connect with that one person you shared a fleeting moment.

Well Pride weekend is now over and the Missed Connections posts are finding their way onto Craigslist. I figured I’d share my favorite ones, and who knows, maybe even help someone find that beautiful stranger with the neon cock ring they wish they’d talked to.

Wolf at Pride looking for that pretty one… – m4w (downtown / civic / van ness)

I was the one in the wolf fursuit with the dapper colonial garb and the walking cane at Pride. You were female, quite attractive, and caught my attention. My fiance is quite tolerant – they agreed that it might be a good idea to try to find you and discover more about you. If you think you might be the one I’m talking about, please don’t be bashful – I would be enthralled to hear from you. Since it is in vogue to request identifying characteristics, please indicate in your email what color my eyes were.

Pride/hip hop stage/Im really fucking short – w4m (downtown / civic / van ness)

This is a long shot lmao, but I here we go… We were dancing at pride at the hip hop stage, right in front. I have red hair, I’m 4’9, mandala tattoo on my shoulder, green/blue eyes. You’re a really good dancer and hot as fuck. Like DAMN FAM. You were wearing a white shirt I think?? We danced for a pretty hefty amount of songs. I don’t even think I got your name 🙁 but uh if this sounds like you and wanna dance again lets do the damn thang.

Handsome cop – pride parade – m4m (downtown / civic / van ness)

Saw you twice on the same day, cute smile, you threw your beads during the parade 🙂 would be nice to connect.

Sailor Venus at Pride – w4w

You asked me where my costume was after I asked where the rest of the Sailor Senshi were. Just want to say hi and laugh a bit; hope you found your group!

m4m on Muni 8:45pm – m4m (downtown / civic / van ness)

I was in a suit & tie – you got on Muni at Civic Center wearing sunglasses and said, “Hello.” You took off your sunglasses and gave me permission to do something because it was Saturday night. I got off on Van Ness and you wished me, “Happy Pride!” If you can tell me what you gave me permission to do – I would like to meet.
