It's interesting to see which nonspecific places grab the most craigslist Missed Connections in which cities. In L.A. it's the Starbucks or the gym, and in Seattle, it's car to car.

If you've done your shopping for the week and don't plan to be heading to the airport anytime soon, here are the other locations where the most craigslist Missed Connections take place. But don't hold your breath: Miami residents seem to be less enamored of craigslist Missed Connections than those from other towns. It must be the heat.

While you'd think that most of Seattle's Craigslist Missed Connections would happen in coffeeshops, apparently you're most likely to be spotted if you're mobile--the majority of missed connections appear to be hotties either riding the bus or driving their cars.

1516 Second Ave.
This homey bar and dance club is known for friendly waitstaff, cheap drinks and cheery clientele, but you never know who might be too shy to approach you as you do your thang on the dance floor.
