Of Craiglist's many valuable services, perhaps the most important is the Missed Connections.

Some can be as simple as a quick description of a person and a setting, and an explanation of how the poster would like to meet up again. Some can be more convoluted, with directions, pictures, maps, and even a secret code or two.

And some are painful yawps aimed at the entire universe, decrying the sad events that befall the emotionally over-available.

Below are some of our favorite Missed Connections, culled from San Francisco's Craigslist:

Shoeless and in plaid? This woman has found her Hobo King:

This post is mostly straightforward, but also adds a touch of mystery by hiding clues in the title. (Hint: He's talking about S-E-X. Or else F-O-C-A... F-O-C-C-A-T... however you spell "focaccia."):

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
