Many of Craigslist’s missed connections astound me. I mean, sometimes, there are reasons that you don’t approach someone in a certain place, be it a funeral or when they are with their spouses. Are these reasons really negated when you go on the computer and seek them out afterward? (Hint: The answer is NO).
Before I get into it, let me start off with this gem:
Because you wouldn’t want to bankrupt yourself with the high-priced ladies of the night that hang out at Front and Somerset.
Okay, back to the inappropriate meeting places.
Church: Not only are you in a house of God, but the guy has a wife. Plus, most religions preach against homosexuality, so you’re looking at a triple sin, here.
STD testing clinic: not a romantic place. And would make for the most awkward “how we met” story ever.
Your child’s preschool: Do I have to explain why this is creepy?
Okay, let’s make it any school you are too old to attend.
On Facebook: Because people think they know you from a 200-word profile. And are mean.
Strip club: never a good idea. Take it from me, you can’t turn a ho into a housewife (or husband, as it were).
Through the T.V.: Because she doesn’t know you exist, which makes your “connection” kind of imaginary. And makes you kind of a stalker.
The Franklin Institute: Those science nerds apparently can’t take a hint.
The Department of Public Welfare: Do you really want to start a relationship with that much baggage?
Math class at community college: Because apparently they don’t teach English skills there.
Although, apparently they don’t teach English skills in English class, either.
A parked van: warning bells go off on this one. Why was the guy just sitting in a van? Why does he even have a van? Haven’t you ever watched a Lifetime movie or the beginning of an episode of Law and Order?
Public transportation: People are just creepy.
In a booth at an adult theater at 2 in the morning: Need I say more?
On the internet: Because of guys like this.
On an unrelated note, will someone please help this guy?
