(Every day is) Halloween
Each week, we pick four thematically linked Missed Connections from the weekend to compete in a battle of opinion. First prize is a date with the missed connection. Second prize is a set of steak knives. Third prize is you’re fired. (We have no power to actually award any of these prizes. Leave your ranking in the comments.)
If there’s one holiday custom-built for anonymous, online declarations of love, it’s Halloween. The costumes, the booze, and the early-autumn frivolity all combine to create of perfect storm of unrequited lust. Oh, and everyone is dressed as sexy dinosaurs or whatever. So without further ado, we present just a few of the weekend’s many, many Halloween-themed Missed Connections. (Featuring a rare w4m!)
Batman & Robin -- House of Guinness & Denny’s. - w4m (Waukesha)
We first met at the House of Guinness in Waukesha. You, tall and bat-like. Me, tall and mushroom-like. We shared a high-five. My friends and I ended up taking the party to Denny’s. As I walked in the door 2 trashy girls looked right at me and laughed, then hid their heads in disgust. It’s not my fault I was the only one in costume at Denny’s. Now to the reason I write this. All of a sudden you and Robin appeared. We shared in another high-five. You saved the night, I didn’t feel so out of place. Batman you ARE my hero. Oh yeah, don’t worry Mario couldn’t catch me....
Skyrim Halloween Costume - m4w (North Ave.)
I talked to you for a few minutes tonight about what you were wearing for halloween; you were frustrated that no one got you were your character from skyrim. I thought that was really cute, and you seemed funny and really cute. I wanted to talk and hang out more, but I was working, so I figured it was at least worth a shot writing to you on here as I’m sure there aren’t too many people for you to confuse yourself with. We should go get a drink or coffee or something sometime. Tell me about the situation and your costume so I know it’s you!
