missed connections (westside edition)

in contrast to some of the videos i post, i'm a hopeless romantic.

one of my favorite past times is trolling the "missed connections" page on craigslist. partly because i'm insane and i've seen too many movies and partly because when i feel the world is shit and love matters to no one, i'm pleasantly reminded my perspective is false by some random, romantic, "missed connection" posting.

well wouldn't you know, via a degree of separation, i now know of someone who was posted about!

a little back story...

emily just started dating this guy and while on their third date this weekend, he overheard her and her friends talking about a creepy dude at a party that was hitting on one of emily's friends. said guy knew they were going to look at missed connections (a favorite pastime of theirs) this morning to see if sir creep posted anything creepy about emily's friend.

instead of sir creep, emily found this from the gentleman she's been dating. so, so sweet.

i don't know you well enough to tell you this to your face yet but after being near you tonight i am on cloud 9 times 9 to the 9th power. i think you are gorgeous and funny and beautiful and wise and i think we could have something very special together. i don't want us to be a missed connection.
