It happens: You steal a glance, your heart starts moving faster, she looks back, you return the look, he rubs up against you at the bar, you rub back, and then, boom, he/she has vanished, and love connection has fizzled. Maybe.
Thanks to Craigslist's 'Missed Connections' page, though, it doesn't have to be the end. There's a slim, but real, chance that the loveline can be reconnected. We here at West Coast Sound are all about hooking up, and want to help the lovelorn and/or horny get busy, so we're taking a page out of fellow LA Weekly blogger Dennis Romero's brilliant post of last week that aided Halloweeners in finding love.
What follows are missed connections over last weekend that somehow involve clubland: either concerts or danceclubs. Maybe you have a pink mohawk and were at the Business show at the Key Club last week? Or did you get a sexy look at Japandroids? See below.

Hi. We were both making our way thru the lower level of Ikea this afternoon. We exchanged a few glances. Up for coffee?

Hey! So this is kinda odd and I normally wouldn't do this, but I had fun dancing with you last night at Rage and think it might be cool to grab a drink sometime since we didn't actually talk, except for a quick intro as it was closing. Tell me something so I know it's you.

To the blond haired, twenty something in the brown? jacket being led around by an older, handsier guy… I haven't been eye fucked like that probably ever… especially not twice. I was the guy in the blue slim fit jacket with facial hair. I even enjoyed watching you ogle the dancer for free liquor.
A long shot to be sure, but you lingered on my mind…

Me: Tall irish looking dude with Mutton Chops, Wearing a driving cap, black jacket and a Blitz T-shirt.
I kept on catching you looking at me about 50% of the times I was trying to look at you. You're adorable.. and even if you read this and don't want to reply, I just said something that I was too much of a pussy to say to your face, and you heard it. That is all.

You were the really cute, skinny, Latin twink dancing with your friends at Boybar tonight. I was the tall guy who asked you what your shirt said. I thought you looked hella good on the dance floor…hit me back if you'd like to chat some more.

you – asian, blue oxford shirt, standing with your friend
me – black jacket, brown plaid shirt
i wouldve made a move if you looked at me 3 times, but you only looked twice.

I feel a little weird posting this, but I'm kicking myself for not introducing myself to you earlier in the evening instead of waiting to do so as you were leaving.
We both had our group of friends, but we kept making eye contact across the bar. I can't get your smile out of my head!
If by any chance you see this, respond back with a description of me. We briefly exchanged names as you left. Mine also begins with a “T”

Does anyone know anything about the cute boy dancing fri night at Furar? I was mesmerized by him and too shy to try to talk to him. If I knew something about him I think I could start a conversation. He's tall and has star tattoos.

You and I danced briefly before I had to go, we were looking at each other for a large part of the night. I put my number into your phone but I don't think I held “send” long enough for the call to go through. Anyway, if you see this, e-mail me. Tell me what color shirt you were wearing.

Raleigh Southern Boy. I feel odd posting this. If by any chance you see this, respond back with a description of me. We briefly talked and exchanged names as you left.

I was walking to the bar, you were standing there wearing a low cut green shirt, you had 2 friends also wearing green. We shared a look and I was going to say hi but I remembered that tonight, I came out to get out of my head for a while and that includes meeting new people.
But now that the night is over, even if it's a long shot, girl in green, I want to dance…. with you!
you slipped away to the bathroom and That small glimpse was all I got, yet I want more.

You were the cute guy in the plaid jacket dancing by the stage. I had the black cap and glasses and was dancing near you. Just wanted to tell you how cute, sexy and adorable you are. Not to mention a fantastic dancer. Wish I'd said something to you when I had the chance.

We were the OrchestraView squatters. You play(ed) oboe. I play oboe. You teach piano and we both know Bernadette at RDG. If you are looking for a concert date/buddy sometime, please let me know! I'm thinking about going again on Tuesday to see Kronos play Zappa and Partch.
