The Best Craigslist 'Missed Connections' from Burning Man

"You, had a green goatee, and no pants. A cow patterned blazer, No shirt. Sicc tatts."

This couple has already made the connection, it appears (Reuters).

The Playa, home of Burning Man, has a reputation for sex, drugs, and music that bears a conceptual resemblance to rock'n'roll.

But maybe it's also a place where the seed of love can be planted, and then that seed could grow into a sprout over the festival, and then scooped up into a container and driven back to San Francisco in a furry car and transplanted in the fertile soil of the Bay Area.

Or that's the idea behind these amazing Burning Man Missed Connections posted on San Francisco's Craiglist board. People with yellow fuzzy tap dancing shoes looking for fellow travelers with chill vibes.

Burningman EFT workshop - m4w - 41 (tent EFT Burning man)

You are a slender Caucasian girl in EFT session wearing an orange yellow pareo, I was sitting next to you and at the end wanted to talk to you when a friend appeared and I missed the opportunity.
You are on my mind...because I could 'feel' your person and that there was something special.
If you read this could you be so kind to send me a note.

You may of been my true-love-prince! - w4m - 24

I, was wearing purple polka-dotted crotchless panties, yellow fuzzy tap dancing shoes and rainbow knee-high socks with swirly peace signs. On my tits, I had disco pasties. I have sicc multi-colored dreads.

You, had a green goatee, and no pants. A cow patterned blazer, No shirt. Sicc tatts.

I saw you hula'n on the multi-colored flying dragon art-car as I was riding my TIGHT cruzer thru da sicc playa dust.

We made eye-contact and never saw each again! Hope the universe brings us together. Namaste.

P.s. my name is Raven.

p.p.s we saw each other at burning man.

Easy Does It - w4m - 29

You: Beautiful blonde, green eyes, with awesome food tattoos
Me: The dude in the blue fedora
Where: The New Easy on Lakeshore
When: 8PM Monday 8/27

We shared a smoke on the back patio, talked about your upcoming trip to Paris, the awesome cocktails we were enjoying, and how Burning Man isn't what it used to be. I wasn't sure at the time if you were 'with' the other gal you were with so I left it alone. My mistake - hoping you'll read this and let me make it right.
