Missed Connections: Love at a Crime Scene and a Hipster Scorned
Between a woman who instantly fell in love with a responding officer to a zombie nurse who had the hots for a detective wizard, these are the best missed connections in town this week.
Missed Connections are posts on Craigslist where men and women cross paths with a person of interest, instantly triggering a curious attraction. Alas, the meeting was too short, and the pair failed to exchange contact information.
This is a roundup of the best Missed Connections of the week:

“Crime scene officer who came to process”
A Lake View crime scene wasn’t enough to calm the fluttering heart of a 34-year-old woman Monday. According to a post on Craigslist, the officer who responded made her melt.
“Although the situation was terrible, I thought you were very cute!” she wrote in the post. So if you’re out there, mystery officer, a single lady in Lake View wants to grab a cup of coffee. It may be inappropriate, but according to the post, she’s hoping to hear from you.

“Guy dressed as Harry Dresden at Neo Saturday night/Sunday morning”
Love was in the air at a Lincoln Park Halloween Party Saturday night, and as Sunday morning approached, push came to shove.
“I was the nurse from Silent Hill who was shoved by the Prom Queen,” wrote a 26-year-old woman on Craigslist. The man she had her eyes on was dressed as wizard detective Harry Dresden of the fantasy series, The Dresden Files. Wherever you are, Mr. Dresden, this zombie nurse thinks you have great taste in books.

“Seeking the Flash, Teen Wolf and Finn from Adventure Time”
It’s not every day you see a group of lovers who all missed the once-in-a-lifetime chance at keeping the flame alive, but according to a post on Craigslist, six costumed partiers were off their game Sunday.
“Unicorn Statue, Un-Lady Bug and My Little Pony enjoyed your company and would like to be friends,” wrote three women who missed their chance in Lincoln Square. Are you the Flash, Teen Wolf or Finn? These three ladies want to meet again.

Sometimes the only chance to get the last word with someone you don’t know is by shouting out your grievances on Craigslist. While this 27-year-old Wicker Park man didn’t fall instantly in love after hearing an insulting comment about his wardrobe, it’s clear he can’t stop thinking the woman he passed on Division Street.
“After we passed, you made some comment to him about checking off items on your ‘Hipster Checklist,’" he wrote. “To me, a hipster is someone who is judgmental and dismisses others as inferior. Guess what? That's you.”
But even after that burn, he’ll hope you’ll “have a nice day.”
