Looking to attract attention from members of the opposite sex in Arlington? If the past week’s Missed Connections on Craigslist are any indication, all you need is a dog.
On at least four separate occasions in the past week, lovelorn admirers have posted messages in hopes of connecting with attractive dog owners.
It started last Tuesday, with a woman seeking a man she had met at the Shirlington dog park.
Hi. I met you at the dog park on Saturday or Sunday (the days seem to drift together). You have a young dog named Kai (I think I have spelled that correctly). I have three dogs, our dogs played in the water and we spoke briefly.
I know it was your first visit to the dog park, and I hope to see you again!
Then, on Saturday, another Shirlington dog connection at Caribou Coffee — this time, a man seeking a woman.
You tied your dog up outside of Caribou to get a coffee and some water for the pup. I was with my friend at the table next to you – I was the guy sitting closest to you in a red shirt. You walked away before I had the chance to really talk to you, but I would like to meet you back there and buy you a cup of coffee some time.
Also posted on Saturday, a man seeking the “cute blonde with the adorable dog” in Ballston.
You were the cute blonde with the adorable dog named Doobie. I guess he didn’t like us because he kept barking. Sorry about that. If it was up to me I would have just played with him all night. Let’s get drinks at the same place sometime so I can make it up to you two.
Finally, a female dog owner posted yesterday seeking a “blond and handosome” dog owner she spotted at the Shirlington dog park.
I know this is a long shot but I thought I’d try…
Tonight I saw you at the dog park with a retriever and an older gentleman. You were hard to keep my eyes off of actually but I didn’t want to weird you out. I was the brunette with a pink shirt and little beagle.
I think we live in the same sub division maybe because I was walking the same route home.
How about a playdate with the pups…or a regular one?
