Blue Line Betties and Orange Line Oscars Finally Meet

Metro Opens Dates

The Metro is one of those great spots to people watch in DC. Between the tourists and the interns and the hill rats and other downtown workers, there’s always someone to lock eyes with just for a second. Now there’s a place for all of those missed metro connections: Metro Opens Dates.

Organized by line, you can post your Metro Missed Connections on their free boards. Dave from Crystal City writes:

“To the girl who fainted on the blue line this morning. Once you get your breath back drop me a line here. Your cute. I didn’t see what book you were reading, but I like to read as well. We can use that as a foundation. Dave”

Charley from Springfield writes:

I see you get on at Crystal City with a worried look on your face every morning. Your like a sad Jennifer Aniston as you stare down at your blackberry. I can only assume every morning you receive a depressing email that you read on your way to work. Cheer up my friend, you have a rather large coach bag that should make you smile.

Missed a Metro Connection? Check it out. Thanks much to Ben for suggesting this to us! Have a site you want us to see? Suggest it!

    Because obviously the missed connections page on craigslist doesn’t provide enough laughable fodder?

    *shakes head*

    When will these people grab the bull by the balls and actually step outside of their blackberry screen (shut up Tom)/latte/book/themselves and take a chance and oooooh, I dunno, actually talk to some-bloody-one?

    Well, it’s a new idea, I’ll support it. Cool how you create a bio with a picture. regardless of whether it encourages anti-social or intreverted behavior people are gravitating towards online dating and it’s nice that commuters have a Metro specific community.
