Even though Craigslist officially removed its entire “Personals” section a few months ago, that hasn’t stopped the legions of die-hard Missed Connections fans from hoping to find Mr. or Mrs. Right through anonymous internet personal ads – now filed under the “Community” section.
Once again, we rounded up some of the highlights (if you want to call them that) posted during the month of July and reproduced them here, in all of their unedited (and in many cases, creepy) glory.
And if you or anyone you know actually made a connection through Craigslist, we want to hear all about it. Send the details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
