Craiglist Wants Your Missed Connections Success Stories

The only thing worse than being in a missed connection is NOT being in a missed connection. Amiright? Browsing through the last few weeks of entries, I noticed a few things. First, national problem: People still don't seem to know or use adjectives. Second, there were a few connections I had most unfortunately overlooked from shows these last coupla weeks. For instance, some mantard (I know, redundant) at the Cage the Elephant show at Mercy Lounge a few weeks back only wanted to thank the gorgeous ladies in the front row for being so dang bangin'. So sweet, you guys. As a spokesperson for all ladies everywhere, I hope you at least saw some side boob. And then, yet another in a long line of bad describers launched another needle-in-a-haystack rocket into hyperspace when he went looking for a girl at the Dan Auerbach show with this decription: She was a girl. With a friend. Who was shorter than her. And who had dark hair. And she was wearing a dress. Fingers crossed, ladies--wedding bells are ringing. But then something else caught my eye: Craigslist is looking for missed connections success stories! And they want to know if they can reprint your story (maybe on their blog?)! Or share it with the media! Sadly, they do not define success story as I had hoped they would. Does anyone know of any actual missed connection success stories? And if so, do these success stories involve any adjectives? Also, does "success" in this case merely mean that the desired person actually recognized themselves in one of these piss-poor descriptions? Or do they have to actually connect, meet and like each other? Inquiring minds.
