When you're at a festival and living in close proximity of 70,000 people in a desert thriving with art and creativity, the chances of meeting someone new are pretty damn high.
Take Burning Man, for example.
There's no question that festivalgoers in Black Rock City connected with one another to create an unforgettable weekend. Heck, some people even got temporarily married.
Although many lucky festival peeps made it back to reality with a new companion once the long weekend was over, there were many who weren't so fortunate.
The hopeless folks who lost touch with the strangers that they met at Burning Man posted their "missed connections" on Craigslist, and they're pretty absurd — yet, we can't help but wish them the best in the search.
Here are a few mind-boggling listings posted by separated Burning Man attendees.
And no, unfortunately, I don't know what a "Playa" is.
"Burning Man: Rob (w the voice) from Boston via New Jersey via Greenpoint - w4m"
You took care of me when I was sick and I never got to properly thank you. Your voice drew me in, with funny, sweet stories about your travels and your Polish parents. Even though I got sick it was an amazing trip because it brought me to you. You saved me and I wanted to explore the playa and you - but I was too out of it to articulate my true intentions. You're nonjudgmental, kind, with an open mind and hot...well you know - you're a SMF. I'll be in San Francisco next month or if you're still traveling come to Seattle and crash with me. I may have what you've been looking for and there is plenty of Metal in town.Yours truly, Oddy
"Burning Man: Michael / Red Feather we walked to the trash fence - w4m (San Francisco)"
I met you Thursday night at the Cosmic Tiki Lounge in Deep Playa. You gave me a red feather and we walked to the Trash Fence where you told me about sky diving in. Thank you for stopping by my camp. I missed you by a minute.
"Burning Man: Freckled face beauty - m4w"
We met near 8:00 & G and your rode on my handle bars all the way to the restrooms at E. We sat and talked while I made you smile, you said how chill I was with my west coast style. With freckles on your face and and my hair standing tall you gave me an address but I forgot to call. You kissed me once but I made you kiss me twice I was digging your body while my tattoos caught your eye. Hit me up when you get a chance I live in Denver now so I can be there in a flash.
"Burning Man: searching for Aspen with the airstream - w4m (Black Rock City)”
It's been two years since you hopped on the back of my friends bike and requested for a ride to your airstream. We are looking for you Aspen, the gyno from Beverly Hills. Your airstream was near 8:45J. We would like to enjoy drinks from your bar. Enjoy the interior ambiance of your color changing lights ... And we want to ride your sibian machine again. Lets reunite Aspen!
"Shot roulette on E, should have proposed to you - w4m (Black Rock City)"
we were biking by and stopped to play shot roulette with you guys. one of my friends spin the wheel and had to find the largest penis. as he looked, we chatted. I spun and had to propose to someone. thought of choosing you, but my knee bent towards the girl next to you I was too shy. as we left you said you'd meet me at my camp; the one with the third largest sound system on the playa. third largest, is that even a thing? what else can you tell me? the color of your hair, the size of my bike. the camp you were at?
Based off of these cryptic posts, it looks like the weekend in the desert was definitely one helluva time.
