Normally, when you stumble across anything Craigslist-related on the internet (outside of Craigslist itself) it’s about some bizarre shit. Take, for example, this ad posted by a complete psychopath needing a roommate, or this fantastically written ad for this guys ‘1999 Toyota F*#%ing Corolla.’ You’re just kind of conditioned to think that Craigslist is a breeding ground for WTF/humor content.
Which is why this ad will completely throw you off. The gentleman below posted a request in ‘Missed Connections’ seeking a woman he had met on a random day in 1972. The man happened to be a war veteran and was in an extremely dark place mentally, and the encounter changed his life forever. Ready your feels and check out his beautifully written listing below.
