Yesterday, we shared our ten favorite Valentine's Day Missed Connections from Denver Craigslist. Turns out plenty of people on the Colorado Springs Craigslist Missed Connections site failed to connect on February 14, too — but the locations where the near misses took place were a lot different from one city to another. Whereas the Denver settings tended to be spots like clubs and coffee shops (plus a DUI class!), the ones in the Springs include Just Brakes, Auto Zone, Dollar Tree and not one but two Walmarts.
Proof that love can happen — or not happen — anywhere. Check out the ten most memorable posts below, complete with links just in case you're the person who scored a romantic bullseye without realizing it.
Number 10: Beautiful blonde at Lowes — m4w
Holy smokes you are amazing! Tell me what was said and what kind of boots you had on...you know i want you!!
Number 9: I saw you at walmart — m4w
Wednesday I saw you at Wal mart on woodmen around 11 am. We crossed paths two times, but the second time we looked into each others eyes you had your hair up in a bun. I just want to say you are the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. I would like to ask you out some time. If I can find you.
You pulled up in a white car with a guy. I was in the black Civic. Watched you walk out as soon as you walked in. Have to say that I liked what I saw. Tell me what color of shirt you were wearing. And hopefully you are somewhat single ;-)
Number 7: just brakes — w4m (platt and circle)

Number 6: Lifetime Fitness — m4m (Springs)
You go to lifetime, seen you there many times working out and getting sweaty, all that muscle. I run into to you in the locker room while your changing, you slightly stair at me while I try not to stare at you. All I see is that muscle and your potential. I'm mid 20's young and successful, muscular build. Hit me up see if I can't help you out in anyway. This is to all your lifetime studs.
Number 5: Great Clips — m4w (Union)
You cut my hair today and we talked about a LOT of things, including where you lived before and tattoos....I commented on both of your visible tattoos!
I think you are stunning! Would love to get to know you more....Doubt you will see this, but if you do, shoot me an email and tell me something about you...like where you moved from or something else we talked about!
You were waiting for you buddy as I was mine around 8:00
Would like to talk more
You are driving a red car
What we talk about
Hope you see this
Number 3: 24hour — w4m (austin bluffs)
Idaho tattoo, you are possibly one of the most active men I have ever seen working out at 24.
We drove by each other in the Safeway parking lot next to Great Clips. You ended up parking at the bank there, I believe 1st Bank. You were driving a silver SUV with a large sticker on the rear window. You had shoulder length dark hair and the most amazing eyes I've ever seen! Anyways, you're probably married but in the small chance your not I'd love to meet you. If you see this (probably not) respond with what I was wearing, the color and vehicle I was driving so I know it's you. Hope to hear from you!
You've got that self-loathing kind of cute going on.
Digging the haircut, too.
Let's fix my truck together.
