Democracy makes some Chicagoans frisky, it seems. See these election-related Craigslist Chicago's Missed Connections posts as proof:
From Election Day:
-I walked in right behind you at the polling place which was the wrong one. I noticed you turned and smiled at me warmly twice. Made me get butterflies a bit inside. You're really cute. Seems like you might be a teacher. If you read this drop me a line, I would like to know more about you.....tall guy standing behind you.
-In the elevator, you mentioned you had put on some clothes to vote. I wouldn't have minded if you went without the clothes. You're a hot guy and made voting more enjoyable! Feel free to say hi sometime. Tell me something about our conversation if you see this so I know it is you.
-You were the election judge at the trailer park,the cute black guy. If you see this hit me up would like to chat with you,maybe do lunch. I think you are hot.
-How rude of you to not share your seat. I wanted to kick my legs up. Also, I wanted to tell you that you are the most fascinatingly beautiful creature that I have ever seen. It's Tuesday, It's election day and It's 7pm. You sauntered off into the night with your umbrella and your multicolored flower coat and I pussed out on talking to you. You need to be my muse.
-You were leaving after voting. We had a nice friendly hello and I wish we would have gotten to chat a bit more. If you're interested send a message with what color jacket i was wearing.
-Wanted to spend the evening with you, cuddled in your arms....watching the election coverage, a movie...whatever we desired. I've seen a post or two that could've been for me but I'm no longer replying to these. In fact I want to be done here. Doubt you'll reply to this anyway, will most likely get flagged like they always do, or not show up at all...but just had to put it out there in case you do see it so you'll know I'm thinking of you and missing you.
-I stood with you in line to vote. You were chatty with Me and everyone but I thought we might have a connection. You were a police academy cadet and had been to Iraq. It was your first time voting. Afterward I asked you if it was everything you wanted it to be. You were about to answer with a rude joke but we were interrupted.
-I helped you register and vote. You were so handsome that I got nervous and started making typos. Sorry it took me longer than it should have to process you but I wanted more time to check you out. If you find this and are interested message me.
