"You were crying under a crocodile ..."

Craigslist's legendary "Missed Connections" are entertaining to read no matter where you are — whether it's "Hot muscle man in East Village" or "Sexy Electrician from PSEG." But imagine how good they are from the dusty, psychedelic whirlwind that is Burning Man.

Business Insider rounded up some of their favorite posts — and they certainly do not disappoint. The whole piece is worth a read, but here are just a few of our favorite gems.

"Twelve from Burning Man - w4m"

I know this is a total longshot but we hung out Friday night after meeting at a camp "bar" A huge group of guys followed me around the playa calling me Queen until it was late and just the three of us. I named you Twelve. I guess I passed out and woke up confused then ran away. I wish I had stayed and spent the rest of the burn with you.

I feel a little silly posting this, but I really thought we would meet again. We met over by the big light up orb. You gave me some of your hair :). You had to leave to volunteer at Center Camp and came to say goodbye. Your energy was infectious and I'd like the chance to get to know you past the few sentences exchanged.

"Burning man - m4w"

This is a longshot but you were so beautiful and free and when you got on the bus I was like wow and you really stood out I smiled at you and thought you were gorgeous and you looked at me and then someone said something about vaping in a van and you bailed but please if this is you give me a shot.

"Crying under a crocodile at burning man. Mark, aka Fruit Salad , - w4m"

You were crying under a crocodile. I was with a couple friends who noticed. You had a purple (was it blue?) faux-hawk. We descended upon you and embraced and comforted you. We ended up back at your camp in a delirious state of sleep deprivation and substance come-down.
