Facebook page shares "missed connections" from college library

Shares

Before there was the Internet, newspaper classifieds, fliers on lamp posts, and messages pinned to bulletin boards were just some of the “old school” ways people tried to connect with that special stranger, otherwise known as a missed connection.

Today, those methods have been eclipsed by websites like Craigslist and Facebook, where a missed connection page for Dublin University Library is bringing people together in a hilariously creepy way.

The page “Spotted: TCD Library” was started anonymously Sunday and has already collected more than 4,000 likes and three dozen posts worth of cheesy pickup lines and late night invitations.

“To the couple in the Usher basement - Are you filming a scene for Redtube?” an anonymous user wrote on Facebook Thursday.

Trinity College Dublin has more than 24,000 undergraduate and graduate students. The school was established in 1854 and is the largest in Ireland.

The following are some of the funniest posts on the Facebook page thus far:
