Somewhere in Bloomington, Indiana, a romance sparked on New Year’s Eve. Now it’s up to the power of the internet to make sure that this coupling has a happy resolution. The Missed Connections section of Craigslist is famous for creeps and bizarre stories, but this one is simple, sweet and hilarious. A post titled: “We kissed at midnight then you ran away! – w4m” tells a short story of romance and shame:
“You - 5'8 scruffy, glasses, wearing a blue hoodie outside the Vid and I asked you for a lighter. You lit my cigarette and we talked about our wishes for the new year. We heard the countdown starting and decided to stay outside. I started to cry and you kissed me, and then we started to make out. After a minute I felt something warm and realised that you pissed yourself. I pushed you away and that's when you ran but I wish you had stayed. You peed on me but it's OK! I just want to know who you are! Please reply and when you do tell me why I started crying so I know it's you - if you remember.”
If this post somehow finds the male in this story, reply to her. You have found a winner. You already know there is mutual attraction, AND she is extremely forgiving. After all, she could have submitted her story to the internet like this:
Best of luck to this Craigslist missed connection. May your romance have a second minute.
