We know singles have been meeting while sitting in hard plastic chairs watching their frilly delicates dry for as long as there have been laundromats but these two missed connections

I was doing laundry today in Santa Monica. You were the cute brunette with the pink tank top on and blue jeans. You are truly gorgeous. I was too embarassed to go up to you and say hi. I noticed your cheeks turning red every so often and thought it might be from me staring at you too much. If you read this please send me a reply. I was wearing the hawaiian shirt, jeans, and nascar baseball hat.

It was around 3pm you were doing laundry with I'm assuming your mom and some other guy (around your age) possibly 17-21, not sure if he was your boyfriend, brother or what the deal was because you guys talked a lot but weren't close enough. You were about 5'3-5'5 hispanic girl wearing a I love nerds tshirt, I couldn't stop looking at you but didn't want to make things to obvious, I felt bad because I was with my girlfriend but sometimes those times come when you just lay your eyes on a gorgeous girl...

in Santa Monica yesterday got us curious. Are they two separate instances of folding and flirting or is it one guy trolling public laundry rooms for dates? Is it one girl who caught the eye of two different guys? And why would the one hopeful suitor reveal he was wearing a hawaiian shirt and a NASCAR cap? Is that look hot in the all-temperature Cheer dating scene?photo by
