Six People Who Missed Their Connections at Outside Lands

George McIntire | August 12, 2013 | Story Music

Meeting and falling in love with a complete stranger at a music festival makes for an awesome "how we met" story. Recalling how you met your future wife while grooving to Hall and Oates at Outside Lands is a surefire WAY to get people to immediately blurt out awwwwwwwwwww.

Sadly, there were some unfortunate souls who deeply felt they made a connection but were not able to get those digits. So spread the word and help these people who have turned to Craigslist as a last resort.

1. Yo-landi Vi$$er m4w

"We danced at A-Trak and you shared a jay with me. Hit me up for adventure time. Zef." —If you're a woman who smoked pot at A-trak, then this could be about you.

2. Nick outside lands m4m
"I had a great time dancing. Lets do it again. Email me and we'll get in touch and get together and talk " —Pro tip: try to be more specific in your ad; there was a lot of dancing going on at the festival.

3. Chris from outside lands w4m
"[M]et you while waiting outside because i got scammed and you were waiting for your "friend" to meet up with you which made you miss gary clark jr. you live in [O]regon" — Dude, you may have missed out on Gary Clarke Jr. but you shouldn't miss out on this girl who's deeply interested in you.

4. Crazy Dancin' at Outside Lands m4m
"My friend and I had a lot of fun dancing with you and your friends at Vampire Weekend after we just kinda danced our way into your circle." —Dance really is the path to someone's heart.

5. Hannah from Puerto Ri- I mean Costa Rica (Outside Lands) m4w
"You stole my beer, I stole your mac and cheese. You were cute." —That line should be a hook in a Katy Perry song. Also I'm guessing the "Puerto Ri- I mean Costa Rica" is some sort of inside joke?

6. blonde sunburnt guy on N Judah m4m
"You blinked to me before leaving the train." —That's an unambiguous come-on if we've ever heard one.
