Dudes Who Posted on CL Missed Connections Last Week: Near-Certain FAIL

Volvo; Redhead; Wishy Washy - m4w - 33 - (Wishy Washy)

This is ridiculous. I am ridiculous. Well, I just had a sense of regret that I was on a precipice, about to attempt diving into a little small-talk with you, and the timing was a little off. Also, I think you smiled at me and I was surprised, and so, I didn't smile back quickly enough (maybe I even forgot to smile altogether). If you're the lovely lass driving the (amazing) Volvo wagon...maybe you'd consider...umm...responding....or...uhh...maybe you'll be there next weekend around the same time. This is weird; I'm done now.


Some committed crimes against punctuation and grammar...
