By now, everyone has worked off their Pride Weekend hangovers and washed the glitter out of their clothes. But some of the people who marched, danced, or otherwise celebrated LGBTQ rights are still thinking about their missed connections at various Pride celebrations—and they’re searching for that special someone on Craigslist.
Judging by these listings, there might have been a bit more love in the air than usual this year due to a certain Supreme Court ruling.
A few Pride participants were even moved to propose right then and there to total strangers.
There were lots of flirtatious interactions that could grow into something more if these star-crossed lovers just checked Craigslist.
Some chose the subjects of their affections from afar, hoping that the cosmos—and the Internet—would eventually bring them together.
Even straight people got in on the action.
And this guy—well, he’s not so much looking for a particular person as hoping to make a connection with literally anyone who saw him.
Are you the object of any of these posters’ affections? Did you see that dude in the frat shirt and think he was hot? One of these posts could be about you!
That being said, a word to the woman wondering why the guy in front of the Stonewall Inn wouldn’t take her phone number: There’s probably a very good reason for that.
