Finding love in NYC sometimes seems more difficult than hailing a cab during rush hour, stumbling upon a 9 a.m. Starbucks line that's less than 10-people long, and making all of the subway transfers from Fort Greene to Morningside Heights (in heels!). Yet, it's at these types of trying and unlikely places that love sometimes finds you instead (awww!). No, but really. Just ask the singles in Craiglist's "Missed Connections" section—they're positive that their future soul mate slipped right through their proverbial fingers, somewhere in this city.
To aid in their mission to find that one that got away (literally), we searched the site for New Yorkers who are seeking their significant others…and what we found might shock you! Case in point: There are still some Big Apple dwellers who believe in fate, romance, and mostly, the ultimate power of the World Wide Web (ahem, guilty as charged!). Sure, some of these pleas for attention might seem a bit wacky or fall on deaf
ears browsers, but at least they prove that when it comes to love in NYC, there are non-cynics out there. Take heart, albeit with a potentially healthy serving of naïveté.
