Missed Connections in Halifax
7 years ago. Part 1
I was bored one night and feeling down and I remembered people at work talking about an online chat game. I decided to check it out, to pass the time. I created a character and soon I was wandering among many others. It wasn’t long until one character approached me and we began to speak. I was completely taken by her; she as smart, funny, interesting …just so much fun to talk to. She must have thought the same of me as it wasn’t long before she asked me to chat outside of the game. Within moments, we were chatting online. We connected again the following day. Then the next. Then the next. This was 7 years ago. We are still talking today, online, emails, phone, text. We have never met. I sent her the first pictures of me about 2 months ago. We are still talking, so I’m thinking that she was honest when she said that she found me handsome. I think she is absolutely stunning. We’ve agreed to meet and we will be face to face on the evening of October 16th, 2013. For the first time. After 7 years.
I found this letter on the Halifax missed connections this past October, and a follow up message was never posted. Did the meeting take place on the 16th? Were the two people as their online profiles portrayed themselves to be? Is this even a true story, or yet another example of merry pranksters using Craigslist for their own fun, games, and creative pursuits? As the Crushed by Velvet video shows us, we never know in advance what the results of our travels may be.
