Missed Connections

I often tell my friends that the "Missed Connections" on craigslist.org contains some of the best literature of our time. As a narrative nonfiction writer, I'm always inspired by its musings. On any given day, the posts might include whichever genre you're hoping for. I frequently read the boards because you come across everything from hopeless romantics (like myself) to people who may or may not have escaped from a lunatic asylum (like myself). There is comedy, horror, romance, drama, suspense... it covers it all. It's truly worth checking out.

Here is a posting that I found tonight in Pittsburgh's missed connections, m4w section. I'll spare the picture of the man's truck that he built himself. I don't want to get too personal. I will say that I appreciate that our mystery man likes to "keep it real" (see point number 6)... Definitely sounds like my type of guy. I'm not a nag but if we want this to work long term, the smoking habit might eventually need sorted out. But I can be flexible for the right person (that's what she said).

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
