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 …

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, free haircuts (which probably aren't hideous), and transport needed for groceries from Boston to Upstate NY.

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 …

Man says sorry for scaring a woman in the Dunkin Donuts drive-thru, and more.
medfield 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, …

Here is the latest and greatest we found on Craigslist this week.

Highway connection It seems lots of drivers on the Mass Pike get shot with Cupid's arrow. Another man now looks for a "gorgeous" woman who was driving on March 13 around 6:30 p.m. on the Pike, getting onto the Exit 13 exit near the Natick Mall. "So like everyone else I can't believe I am posting here, but I really have no idea how else I could find out who this girl was. You were driving a Honda CRV (I think), you had dark hair, and you were absolutely gorgeous. So I had to find out if you were single, and what your deal is. I hope this works!" Let us know at Patch if it does work. Well, the car started yesterday Today, the …

Editor's Note: Patch has no control over the status of these posts on Craigslist and how long they remain available. The ghost in you The founder of a new paranormal group based in Northborough is looking for investigators who have some experience or knowledge about the field. So far, the team consists of three people, and the group looks for three more to round it out. "Understand that we are a small team and hope to be one of the best paranormal groups in MA. Unfortunately, we don't have all the equipment that other paranormal groups have but we are working on that." Guy wants a cup of coffee with 'super hot' girl It's a long shot, said the guy, but he saw you recently while waiting for a lift at the Residence Inn in Marlborough. You …

Of love, sales, jobs and opinions—it's the best of Craigslist.
Can you crack a board with your head? A reality show about martial arts is being filmed in MetroWest. Some 30 actors are needed to participate in a 30-week filming of a reality show that focuses on martial arts. No experience is necessary, but "the ambition to study and learn this ancient practice is required." Compensation is profit-based and filming begins on Feb. 17. You said you liked his hat, but what was he driving? At the Sunoco on Route 85 in Milford recently, a pleasant exchange was made. For you, it may have been nothing. For him, it might be a date. You made a nice comment about his hat, and he thanked you. Sound familiar? There's more. He loved the jeans you were wearing, but not sure if he told you that. Tell him what you were…
