Missed Connection: Weepy at Willow

by ARLnow.com | May 22, 2012 at 10:35 am | 4,828 views | 45 Comments

An unusually heartfelt “missed connection” was posted on Craigslist this morning.

I saw you at Willow [restaurant (4301 N. Fairfax Drive)] Monday night, sitting at a table near me. You – tall, blond hair in braids, stylish, natural beauty, and the face of what I imagine angels must look like. You were meeting with someone who seemed to be a lawyer or financial advisor, and you were inconsolable. I don’t know if your meeting involved the death of someone close to you or something similiarly tragic. I had an almost incontrollable urge to attempt to comfort you. I’m sorry for whatever made you so sad. I’ll send good vibes/thoughts/prayers your way. I’m no stranger to hardship and tragedy, so if by some miracle you read this, know that things will get better, and if you ever need a shoulder to cry on, I’m here.

    Jeeze Louise , somebody pass the Pepto!

    Sounds creepy, like an ambulance chaser except for emotional wounds.

      Wounded bird syndrome.

        Yes.

      I’m going to have to change my handle one of these days

  • nom de guerre

    One of Trevor’s former girlfriends? Or maybe the poster was Trevor himself.

  • bacon

    I wonder if he offers the same compassion for the fat chicks.

      I bet he does! Chubby gals are almost as “accessible” as grieving chicks, provided they don’t have too much self-esteem.

    • MC 703

      Wow Trevor’s FB is still up. I wonder if he’s still in the clink.

      • John Fontain

        I think he’s out now on bail.

      • MC 703

        When any of my friends have had embarassing breakups / legal problems, they immediately shut down the ol’ FB. I wish there was a “If I don’t log-on for 4 consecutive days, suspend account” feature

  • nom de guerre

    Maybe she bought 1000 shares of Facebook at the IPO on Friday.

    • Josh S

      Good one.

      Bid 1000 @ $10!

  • nunya

    aww.

  • Schmeff

    Maybe I’m way off base here, but this guy sounds like a serial killer. I’m sure he has an uncontrollable urge to murder people too.

  • DarkHeart

    Lawyer boyfriend broke up with her?

    • Tabs

      Who’d break up with a willowy (heh) blonde with a face like an angel and braids (braids?)?

      • WeiQiang

        sounds like Bo Derek in ’10′

        • marie antoinette

          crying laughing +1000

      • Guy LeDouche

        For every hot girl out there, there is a guy that is tired of throwing it in her. Hit it and quit it.

        • CW

          …like you dropped out of a boxing class…

        • Tabs

          If you’re “throwing” anything, you might not have too much to brag about.

  • YTK

    Oh For crying out loud! I RETURNED the blond wig the other day!! What a MISSED opportunity!
    Well…. what do YOU look like, hmmmm???!!

  • Russ

    God I wish this had happened in Old Town so we wouldn’t have had to read about it.

    • Ballston

      ALXnow?

  • Jorge

    I think “Creepy at Willow” would have been a better headline.

  • DarkHeart

    Pobert James Waller sighting?

  • Tabs

    Missed connections always reminds me of the note my then-boyfriend received during a conference. The light had been on his phone for a day or so. Front desk person said “err, there’s a note for you.” He wanted them to read it and they said “no, can you please pick it up.”

    It read “I saw you in the men’s bathroom around 6 pm. I’m your height and blond. If you felt the same vibe, meet me by the oak tree next to the parking lot, 8:30 pm.”

    • drax

      So, did he meet up? Don’t leave us hangin’.

      • Tabs

        It was already the next day (post-oak tree) when he retrieved the note. He suspected that a guy from another office of his company was taking a chance without outing himself (in other words, that there was no blond guy checking him out in the bathroom).

        I saw the note. Loopy handwriting.

    do what now

  • http://www.arlnow.com Lauren

    well it is kind of sweet, me thinks :)

  • BallstontoRosslyn

    Maybe she just found out her bf was cheating on her with an older married woman.

    • blondie?

      You seem to know too much…

  • asdf2323asdf2323

    Yea– this is just creepy…

  • Cyrus

    Hot girls, they have problems too. They’re not perfect, because they’re hot.

  • Courthouse Diva

    Sometimes it is just nice to reach out and let people know they re not alone. It would be creepy if he approached me.

  • Alex

    Who can resist a beautiful woman’s tears?

    • CW

      Bottle them!

      • YTK

        They used to do that in Greece. Now they probably can;t — all those health regs you know — meanwhile some idiot from another country just dropped your burger on the floor, picked it up with their (hahaha) clean latex loves and popped it back onto the grill.
