“Dear PoPville,

I’d like to submit a missed connection, please:

You: Cute Jay Duplass-type with a nice smile and salt-and-pepper beard fixedly reading something on your kindle at The Coffee Bar on S Street (Saturday, July 3), wearing bike clips and pant straps.

Me: Lady in white jumpsuit and giant sunglasses hoping we could make eye contact. Want to get together and talk coffee, bikes, and books?


“Missed Connection!

Last night (Saturday July 3) I was out at Takoda rooftop and was making tons of flirty eye contact with this cute tall guy in a green shirt and grey vans standing near our group. I didn’t get the courage to start the convo and then my friends grabbed me to head to a different bar, so we didn’t get to chat. If you see this I was the girl with dark hair wearing a white top and jean shorts!”

“I have a missed connection from July 4th around noon on 5th and K NW. I was dogwalking and a little preoccupied but she made a comment on my yellow shirt and we chatted for a few before crossing the street. She’s from Greensburg, PA and seemed really nice!”

Ed. Note: If any of these are you, please email [email protected] so I can put you in touch with OP. For those curious about past missed connections, some have been made and when possible I’ll try to update when/if more are made. Our last missed connection was made.
