Valentine's Day is a time for love connections.
And also for missed connections.
That's clear from the slew of tales, anecdotes and pleas shared under the Denver Craigslist Missed Connections umbrella over Valentine's Day weekend.
We've assembled and photo-illustrated the ten most memorable posts from the address, complete with links to the original items — including one that suggests the connection wasn't missed at all.
Count them down below.
My friends and I went to Diamond Cabaret on my birthday after going to the club. Your friend promised you would give me a lap dance and you knocked over a hookah. We had a Disney song competition and I left without getting your number. Your name is Xavier, but it's not spelled like that (we never established the correct spelling, so sorry)
To the lovely young woman giving out valentines and chocolate to strangers yesterday downtown. I was in a pretty dark place yesterday and you completely turned me around. You will never know what a difference your gesture made to me. You are a remarkable and magical person and a true ray of light. I just wanted to thank you again.
I really enjoyed talking with you last night! You were a breath of fresh air for me. I was too much of a wuss to just ask for your number last night. I'd really like to talk with you more regardless of where it goes. If you know this lady please let her know I am trying to contact her. I hope you have a wonderful day and I wish you all the success in your holistic endeavors! Maholo
Number 7: If we ever meet again (Vail?)
Your name was josh and I met you in vail many years ago.. Idk why you came to my mind lately and why I even decided to go out on a limb and write where the crazies seem to be lol, but I figured why not right? I didn't sleep with you and for some reason that intrigued you. I only seen you 2x, we were gonna run away to Hollywood.. ;). If we ever meet again right.. Happy Valentine's Day. If you think this is you, tell me what game we played and what happen during that game and what instrument you played.
Number 6: Cutie with the chicken (Sprouts 38th)
You seemed nice... And open to chatting. That checkout line moved too quickly :) Welcome to Denver?

Number 5: Razia at Porter (Denver)
You took such great care with my uncle Jim at the hospital. You were so kind and generous. I wanted to take you to dinner, but I felt like asking for your number while you were at work didn't seem apporpriate. Hope you see this and we can make something happen.
Number 4: A, just know
Sometimes I wish oh how things went different. This isn't Dean nor do I ever care who he is or ever will. But I still think about you from time to time and wish the best for you! Just please understand that someone really still hopes that you have everything going for you and someone cares.
From the bottom of My Heart,
Happy Belated Valentines Day :-)
— Someone you used to know
I helped get your car off ice by breaking it away using a wrench from my Jeep. We chatted about Kansas a bit, would love to grab a drink sometime. Hope you made it along and had a great day.
You were shopping around 1 pm we seemed to keep running into each other. I believe I picked something up of yours and turned it in. So I know your name.. you are extremely hot. I don't know if you even noticed me.
Number 1: Happy Valentines Day Baby
I couldn't let the day go by without sending out this wish for you.
I don't know if you will see this or not but know I love you as much today as ever and I will always be here.
