Inspired by our friends at Coach House, we put out a discrete little Missed Connections box near the entry of the Toronto the Good party this year. If you met or saw someone interesting, but couldn’t quite muster up the nerve to exchange information, maybe the magic of Missed Connections could help.
Below are a small, curated handful of the best submitted messages. Many were un-printably raunchy, an unfortunate number were self-promotional, and there were even a few entirely inappropriate solicitations of employment (sorry, “up-and-coming Architect – looking 4 a intro job“).
If you think you’re the person mentioned, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can forward your reply to the original author.
“You – tall, dark & handsome. Me – way too drunk.”
“Sweet Baboo, where are you?”
“You look like my boyfriend, but I am taken. If I was single we would have flirted.”
“Sunny, thanks for the company. Let’s meet for a rum.”
And by far our favorite:
“You were a raven haired beauty in a black + white dress. I want you to renew my tower.”
