The dust has finally settled in Las Vegas after an epic three-day Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) festival experience. It wasn't just glitter, kandi bracelets and neon-colored tutus that were left behind at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway over the past weekend—there were broken hearts there as well. *Single tear.*

There were many a folk who were raving and rolling too hard to remember to get each others' numbers during kismet connections and PLUR bracelet exchanges at EDC. But now that their memory is slowly coming back to them, they've turned to the internet to rekindle their romances that started so earnestly by the Calvin Harris or Above & Beyond stages. We found our favorite missed connection stories through Craigslist, a website created just for EDC missed connections, and Reddit. (And since these stories come from anonymous folks, we're unable to verify them.)

We hope these lovebirds find each other. Godspeed.

This person really wants to find Trinity so badly that he's set up three different methods to find her:

Your name was trinity. We met at circuit grounds. You joked that I dropped my bass. I joked I picked it up. We said we'd see each other later and never did.

The showers that could have been:

I found this guy. Saturday coming out of the crowd from Avicii. He let me use his camelback. We hung out in grass making out for awhile then we all went to the bathroom and we lost him there. He's a shaggy blonde lifeguard from San Diego. His major is environmental science. He's 21. He said his name was "Rawling" or something. He has a distinct laugh. Help me find him. He was fun. We were going to shower together. Anyways let me know if you know anything about who I think I'm talking about. He's my Roll-mate. Here's some horrible pictures of us rolling. - Girl From Portland

Sometimes all you've got to identify a loved one are their rave outfits like this:

up with my friends. I'll always regret not even knowing your name.You were dressed as woody from toy story leaving the bathrooms on the right side of kinetic field to go see hardwell. I was leaving the crowd to go meet

Or this one:

French guy with the fluffy pikachu hat and adorable accent! I'm sorry I missed you in the crowd last night, please try and find me at Kinetic tonight!! 🙈😅🙌

The sweetest kind of love comes from kandi bracelets:

I met you EDC 2015 day 3, Kinetic field, on the left side, right before Calvin Harris. You asked if you could get on the side rail to use your GoPro. I refused at first and told you I would lose my spot if I did. Even though I refused to allow you entrance onto the side rail, you were the only person in 3 days who PLUR'd me. You gave me a Captain America kandi with a shield charm, and I gave you a "URAQT" kandi. Regardless if I were to lose my spot or notou weren't rolling, and I told you I had just popped one, but hasn't hit me yet. You left sometime after Calvin and thanked me, and I went the rest of tht for that moment. I want to thank you. @e night knowing I didn't need to roll, because you allowed me to connect with others, relieve my social anxiety and fear of rejection, even if it was jus

O shroom brother, where art thou?

Met you at flosstradamus. Your brother was on shrooms and I had lost my group. Never got contact information.

James Franco-esque smiles and crystal hearts...:

Hey Mel. It's Alex. The one with the James Franco smile. And you with you're crystal heart that I'm attached too. I hope you hear my voice

Silence speaks volumes:

You gave me your glasses to try while we were watching Justin Martin. I was too out of it to talk to you. I regret that.

This girl's into an older man who sounds a lot like Walter White:

"I'm not usually into older guys, but I had to make am exception. You were at Above & Beyond's set, and you asked me to say your name. I could barely breathe but I still said it. "You're goddamn right" you said. Let's leave our families behind and run away together."

Apparently, EDC isn't a place to act all metal:

This was my first edc and I wish could made connections because at times girls were being a bit touchy lol. I was high as hell that I didn't know since im an introvert,but I wish i had more confidence and not the metal attitude I always have.

Real love starts with hydration:

We met a edc. Short meeting. You were a dope dancer and wore orange tutu/outfit on thr last night. I nervously came up to you an asked for a dance off and offered you water to hydrate. My name is a***on and yours was co***ta

Third time's the charm?

Cute girl in the wheelchair that I met at the basspod Friday night. We chilled for a while then she asked me for a favor and I said "well of course just give me your number... I'll be right back. Fack, my phone actually broke earlier. Okay just stay here I PROMISE I'll be right back." "Yeah! I'll be right here." "Awesome! I'll be back in 5" Me in a less than sober state didn't find her. The mf-ing stars aline and I just so happen to run into her and her friends in the parking lot. Throw my arms in the air "YES!" Had another short chat with her and her friends then again went our separate ways. FML I seriously didn't get her number again even though I had my friends phone this time. Edit: I wanted to find her so bad that I gathered a search group(couldnt stop laughing at the idea the next morning).... fuck it was a great weekend. Cant wait till next year guys/girls.

Always remember the important moments:

We met while waiting to get on a shuttle from EDC to Excalibur (shuttle 6). You told me your name was Andy or Andi? It was short for your full name. You also told me you liked the bass posted stage (trap and dubstep) and assumed I like trance.

We got seperatley and I didn't get a chance to get your number.

Also your friend was slapping your butt everytime you had to tie your shoes since your laces kept coming undone.

Even EDC employees have missed connections:
