Yeah, this could be him. This poster from Central Mass wants to know what you think about on a warm summer day. Innocent enough, right? We should note, however, that his ad, posted in the "platonic," section of Craigslist, started off with the anecdote about how he had a fantasy while outside on his lunch break about a woman who was wearing a bikini made of bacon. Now that he's spilled, it's your turn! (Actually, don't tell us. It could be a violation of our commenting terms.) He probably stopped searching for your "missed connections" Craigslist posting in …

Behold. We bring you the best in postings this week on our local Craigslist.
Editor's Note: Patch has no control over the status of these posts on Craigslist and how long they remain available. Tell him how your phone was acting strangely, and you could have a date Last week, a guy shopping in Ocean State Job Lot in Westborough noticed you. You being a redhead on crutches with a cell phone that was apparently doing "weird things" while you were shopping. We're not sure what your cell phone could have been up to, but if you can prove you're the woman, this man wants to talk with you. He would have talked to you then, but it would have been "weird" because he had his child with him. The guy's straight, but he really likes the way you cut his hair Hey Mark, a hair stylist in Shrewsbury—there's a guy who goes into your…

Also, free hideous couches, and free haircuts (which probably aren't hideous).
Editor's Note: Patch has no control over the status of these posts on Craigslist and how long they remain available. Couches for free, if you can bear to look at it A person in Holliston is parting with two couches that were popular, quite possibly, for a few weeks in the early '90s. Maybe. Both, which are in good condition and do not smell of smoke or pets, would be "great with a slipcover" and are "very comfortable." You've got to pick them up. Did you happen to pick up a full set of golfclubs, in a bag? Yeah, someone is missing those. A person driving a truck near the Northborough/Berlin town line (the Solomon Pond area) returned home to find the tailgate opened, and the clubs nowhere to be found. In the event that two people lost a …

Yes, this is really out there.
Editor's Note: Patch has no control over the status of these posts on Craigslist and how long they remain available. Will looks for Grace A single, gay male living in Framingham is looking for a single, straight or lesbian "gal pal." He'd like someone close to his age with varied interests ... someone to go to a club or a bar once in a while, cook a meal, shop or dine out. Pack a rake, a hard hat and a bathing suit This may be the situation for you if you are a landscaper, construction worker and a boat driver. A person on Lake Masspenock in Hopkinton is in need of someone in the morning and afternoon to go for a boat ride before and after your job, which would landscaping and construction. Heavy on the drums, and practice time A …

And can you possibly help move 'ferniture?'

This oven in Grafton has plenty of good toasts left in him. In honor of Earth Day, this family really dreads tossing this perfectly healthy toaster in the trash. While he may not be as handsome as the models you see in the magazines, he's a rugged, hardy worker who has kept himself clean and still has all his knobs. Please be serious if you call about this toaster oven. He's waited at the door a number of times only to be stood up. Did you come across a rug on the highway? Give it up. That rug's not yours, and there is someone who has been desperately seeking it since January…

Craigslist is full of information ... and crazy surprises.
Editor's Note: Patch has no control over the status of these posts on Craigslist and how long they remain available. We learned this week while browsing the listings on Craigslist that spring brings out the people full force posting in the "missed connections." Like blooms on the vine, these people are awakened to profess their love on the internet. You are the most beautiful woman, you work at Wegmans and your name begins with a "C" There's a guy out there, who says he's 35, and he has sent you a rose (electronically, but uploading it to Craigslist) and wrote a poem to you that starts, "You are the most beautiful woman in the world." He "catches a glimpse of your beauty" on Sunday evenings at Wegmans in Northborough, where you work. This …

Man says sorry for scaring a woman in the Dunkin Donuts drive-thru, and more.
Editor's Note: Patch has no control over the status of these posts on Craigslist and how long they remain available. What we learned this week: there are a few guys out there looking for pot smoking "buddies" to hang out with, people still don't know the difference between "you're" and "your," and there are lots of curb alerts. A Dunkin Debaucle (we didn't say drunken, we said Dunkin) A man issued a heartfelt apology on Craigslist, saying he is sorry he perhaps made a woman pee her pants in the Dunkin Donuts Drive-Thru in Marlborough recently. Apparently, the man was enraged when he saw the woman chuck an old iced coffee cup out the window. In anger, he picked up the cup, knocked on the window, asked if she had dropped something, and …

You've got it. The best ... and worst .. of Craigslist this week.
Editor's Note: Patch has no control over the status of these posts on Craigslist and how long they remain available. Every time he came near you, you moved away, but he wants you to contact him Some of us swear by online dating. Others have romantic thoughts of catching someone's eye on the street, or in a cafe. This man in Framingham has "always dreamed of meeting a beautiful woman like you in a supermarket." This is who "you" are: you were picking up some fruit and "other healthy things for lunch." "You walked the other way every time I tried to approach you...(probably would've said something stupid anyway so I was a little apprehensive). Then I saw you again in the parking lot you walked all the way across the parking lot with your …

It's Craigslist. And this week, someone needs a Scrabble buddy, another wants a mix to play while he's driving, and someone else is smitten with an employee at Wegmans.
