Sure, Craigslist's "Missed Connections" should be a perfect springboard to true love, but with posts popping up from Starbucks to the OTB, it's too unfocused to be useful. Narrow things down to the arteries of your existence, with Subway Crush
SC's a messageboard for romance-struck public transpo riders, broken down by El line so you're covered whether your luxuriant coiffe elicits longing at Fullerton or 95th/Dan Ryan. To see if you've lit a spark, just select your line, filter down by gender/orientation (m4w, w4m, w4w, m4m), and search key words like "blonde", "redhead", or "My Chemical Romance"; if you strike sweet, desperate gold, you can respond privately via e-mail, thus saving you the public embarrassment of finding out you weren't the only guy who crushed her against the door. Current missives include the sporty ("We exchanged a few words about all the Cubs fans who 'didn't have the balls to be winners'"), the prepubescent ("you look so quiet and peaceful sucking your thumb. lol"), and the oh-sweet-Lord-please-quit-typing ("you then, once again, forcefully stuck it in your mouth and began performing oral on it! I came right before we hit Logan Square")
To organize your own lovelorn shoutouts, consolidate posts under the "My Crushes" tab -- once you profess your devotion to everyone you've ever El'd with, you'll be unfocused about which is your stop, and too useless to get off the train.
