10 brilliant missed connections from Irish Craigslist

Craigslist is here to let you know.

HAVE YOU EVER had a moment with a stranger?

Someone you’ve never seen before. Eye contact. Perhaps a shared smile, or a snatched conversation at a bar or the bus-stop. You have? Well, then. You’ve had what Craigslist call a “missed connection”.

Are you worried you might never see that complete randomer with whom you shared electricity? Don’t be. Craigslist enable you to cryptically write the details of your missed connection, in the hopes that the other person will check, and you’ll be reunited. Or, um, meet properly for the first time. Ahem.

Here are the best of the Irish missed connections. Recognise yourself anywhere?

1. The devil is in the details

2. Off duty

3. The kindness of strangers

4. Code red

5. I can’t believe the news today

6. Close encounters of the lewd kind

7. We get it, you liked the legs

8. Alight here for LOVETOWN

9. We found love in a hopeless place

10. While my guitar gently weeps

Have you ever had a missed connection? Leave it below and dare to dream. While you’re at it, why not share this far and wide to help our lovelorn strangers find each other – this could be the beginning of something beautiful.
