  • Love and protesting

       March 07, 2011

    I was watching one of the protest videos over at Althouse and found myself not listening to what one man was saying, but rather thinking how burly and ruggedly handsome he was. When the camera turned to his really annoying wife, I was disappointed, but it did get me to wondering how many love connections have been made this past month in the shadow of Miss Forward.

    While it's not a scientifically approved method, I'm going to turn to the Madison Craigslist Missed Connections ads for some answers.

    SNOWLIDARITY! - m4w (Capitol Square):

    If this snowman's nose has been in your ear, you should contact me. Your image has been stuck in my head since yesterday afternoon, and I regret not getting your name more and more. We should get a cup of coffee and plot the sinister overthrow of Imperial Dictator Walker.

    Awww...see that's kind of sweet

    curvy black girl at protest last night - m4w - 22 (madtown):

    You were in the middle and leading some of the cheers, and you had a pretty clever sign that got me thinking ;) Let me know if you're interested in having some fun...

    This is the Craigslist equivalent of honking your horn at some hot girl. Does this person really think this girl is going to respond? He really needs to try harder.

    Now, this, on the other hand, is just specific enough to actually get a response. The gays clearly know what they're doing:

    Heading to the Capital Rally - m4m - 40 (Downtown):

    You - handsome man, late 40's-ish, nice beard and glasses. You liked my updated version of the Wisconsin state flag. We talked for about a block up to the square and then we went our separate ways. Would love to grab coffee sometime and talk more. If you see this hit me up.

    And again:

    Short blonde hair Friday night - w4w (Capitol rotunda):

    I don't know anything about you except that you support labor and have a nice smile, but I choose to imagine that you're awesome. You're definitely my protestcrush. Hope you have a happy life (both presently and futurely)!

    I choose to imagine everyone else is awesome, too. Seriously, my fellow protesters. You're great.

    But that's it. Really! Missed connections? More like missed opportunities. Although, I guess this is some kind of evidence that the protests really aren't some big party scene, huh?
