Missed connections

Valentine’s Day is on its way, which only means one thing: West High’s secret admirers have sent in their love confessions for the annual Missed Connections.
Missed+connections

To the incredibly smart girl in my World Lit class: Your writing is amazing, and I love the way that you think of these amazing things. I have liked you for years without even seeing what you write, and I just love you for it. This wasn’t even recently, but almost every day since then, I lay down here in my bed and think about it, think about you.                 – Moonlight Dreamer

To the gamer boy who sits next to me, you’re the best part of my day, and I always look forward to seeing you. You’re always so determined, and you never ask for help (even when you really need it). You always melt my heart with your beautiful smile.  – Melting in a puddle of love

To the girl that usually sits in the back of advisory with long wavy hair, brown eyes, glasses, and the best fashion sense; I never dreamed of flowers until I saw you. Now, I can’t go a day without dreaming of fields of flowers, dandelions in one hand, and your hand in the other as we watch the sunset in the distance.  – The guy with long hair

To the boy in my Psych class, just mere exposure to you drives me crazy. My oxytocin peaks when I’m around you.          – Anonymous

To the boy with a beaming smile and irreplaceable laugh, dimples and freckles paired to make the perfect duo, I only hope passing you in the hall won’t be the only time I ever see you.  – Lady Marmalade

To the girl with the gorgeous blue eyes that shine, even through your glasses, seeing you in the halls and locking eyes with you is truly my favorite part of the day. I want to be the one to treat a gem like you right<3  – 101

To the pretty boy who sits next to me in band; your smile makes my stomach have butterflies all morning. I hope you know you are loved by someone always <3  – 1/3rd of the trio

To the girl with pink and purple hair: You have the prettiest smile in the whole world. It always makes me want to smile too. I wish I knew you better.  – Anonymous
