In an effort to meet that special internet someone I always spend at least 2 hours a day planting the seeds for multiple missed connections. I try to fit in at least 4-5 solid connections per day and employ the following tactics:
- Disguising my bicycle as a fixed gear and doing laps around Rittenhouse Square. Prolonged uncomfortable eye contact is key here…
- Putting on my old Jncos and wallet chain and then taking the R5 to the end of the line and back. Unlike the park I let my clothing and accessories do the work and only look out the window.
- Wearing medical scrubs and walking a puppy through college campuses. Bonus points if you cover yourself in blood.
- Writing in a vigorously in a Moleskine as I repeatedly scoff at and page through a Nietzsche novel.
Well good news everyone! My hard work has finally paid off and I have been blessed with a missed connection. While I have to admit it raises more questions than answers (new arrival?!) it’s pretty clear it’s for me. The real Luke.
