    So saturday I'm at the Target, yapping on my cell phone, and I pass a GORGEOUS guy. We both smiled at each other at the same time .. and for me, it was almost an instinctual smile, not forced or anything.

    Well, I chickened out and should have looped around to say hello.

    So I just put up a posting on CL - what the heck, right?

    Has anyone had any results posting a missed connection?

    I have never posted one, but one was posted about me.

    WOW. What does posting a CL ad do for people when they meet someone in the street they think is cute? That's a pretty bold assumption thinking that this guy will even check CL and it's even less likely that he'll even remember that it was you who posted it.

    The Missed Connection on CL is for people who probably had somthing set up but things didn't follow through for whatever reason.

    Why do people go and put themselves through that kind of toture in assuming that certain people would even check thatsection on CL let alone respond to it.

    Good Luck I say but that fantasy just doesn't add up to reality.

    I am about 99% sure that there was a CL Missed Connections to find me once (there were only three of us in the steam room at this gym at a specific time and I was the only one that even remotely met the description).

    I never responded because I was in a relationship when the CL posting appeared (that wasn't doing so well)at the time. The guy was cute... so now that I am single and if you are still out there... icon_smile.gif

    I would guess that the chances of seeing the ad is slim but I also think that there is no harm in posting the ad. If you don't try you will never know... best of luck!

    My coworkers enjoy reading the occasional CL Missed Connections posts about me that random students sometimes make. The last one was posted by a young woman - who described herself in great detail - trying to discern if I would be into her or her cute guy friend. We got a good laugh outta that one!

    I've never had any luck on the missed connections. It's a real big longshot if you ask me but it's worth a try, you never know, he might just respond.

    I had one work out very well once. I was working out at the gym and I noticed this every hot new guy there...tall, dark hair, lean, ripped.

    anyway, I kept noticing him noticing me, and we exchanged a few glances before he ended up doing one of his exercises next to where I was.

    "It's fucking hot in here," he said (and it really was, I didnt think that was a pickup line).

    "Ya, Gold's is too cheap for AC," I said.

    Later I asked him for a spot, even though I didnt need one.

    After that I left and didn't see him again.

    The next day I checked CL (as I always do) and there was a post...

    "Golds Gym: I said it was hot...you asked for a spot. Tell me what exercise you were doing if you want to meet up sometime. I thought you were cute and you have a great body."


    (ok, I may have added the part about the great body...but thats how I like to remember it.)

    Anyway, I replied to him and we met for coffee (which I don't drink, but he owned a coffee shop) and to make a long story short, I ended up balls deep by the end of the day!

    so ya, sometimes they work...

    Had a missed connection yesterday. Was at work so didn't think it was appropriate to say anything. We'll see if the .01% he reads it.
