Always Be Closing

Lee is always forwarding me entries from Craigslist Missed Connections.

It’s for people who have had interactions with strangers but didn’t get to exchange contact info.

A lot of times you see posts where a girl was into a guy, but she just didn’t act in time. Or act right. And she missed her chance.
You asked me for directions to the subway, and then said I was cute and asked if I would like to grab some food. When I said I was on my way to a date you asked if I was married or if it was a boyfriend and how it was going. I was running late and caught off guard so I said that he was my boyfriend.

Truth is it was a first date, you were cute and confident and kept popping into my mind through out the date. You went out on a limb, now I am. I’ve got nothing to lose – should have taken your number or at least exchanged names.
It’s so easy to think that a girl simply wasn’t into you when often times she froze up just like you did. Here’s another:
We got on the subway at the same stop in Queens, but I got off before you in Manhattan. You liked my drawings, I wanted to know about the art you make. I got nervous when you sat next to me. I would love to meet you again, and not “in another lifetime.”
And another:
Tuesday evening, 11pm. Close to Brooklyn Bridge. You were wearing all black and didn’t have lights on your bike. We made eye contact and you biked after me to ask for my name. I was incredibly startled and walked away. I’m a petite Asian girl and get hollered at often, it’s an unfortunate reflex to ignore guys. If you read this, reply back with the color of my coat and what kind of haircut I have. We can chat.
And another:
You were chatting me up on the uptown 4/5 this evening and explained we both lived on the same block in the East Village. I got on at Wall and you approached me just before I had to switch to the 6 at Brooklyn Bridge. Sorry about that, I just wasn’t thinking, I definitely didn’t mean to blow you off.

You seemed like a sweetheart and if you’d like to be in touch, so would I. To clarify, I’m the tall curvy brunette with freckles and you’re a tall white dude with brown hair/professional looking and we were on the train around 7:15 this evening.
The moral of the story? Always be closing! At least carry a business card around that you can give to women.
