Gimme dat Wu-Tang

Walking towards each other on Gore, you with a friend, me in a Wu-Tang t-shirt. You yelled "Hey, gimme dat Wu-Tang shirt!" I stared a little and smiled, shook my head. You yelled again, as you passed, grinning, "GIMME DAT WU-TANG!" I smiled, "Can't, naked underneath". You grinned more "GIMME IT!". I loved the whole exchange and you are one styley brother and I like your moxy.

Pterodactyl Artist

You definitely were an artist. I wanted to ask you to draw on my food takeaway box. But was too shy. I thought you were hot and cool and fab. I got on at Metrotown and sat with you. There was a noisy chatty guy behind us and we sort of looked at each other when you got off at surrey central. And looked at again and nodded. I wish...I wish...Are you a T. Rex, cause I would like to plesiosaur you.

Explained and Answered

You (Brown hair , Olive Green shirt with a black jacket plus a really cool natural colour hat on) and your 2 friends were checking out the Reclaimed Print booth and I (an asian guy) was there explaining really quick about the company and the products. About 5 mins later you came back alone to ask prices on a certain products that I answered but I wish i was not that nervous because I thought you were really pretty.

the narrow Jew

So you read my Hebrew tattoo on my arm and asked me what it meant. I was too nervous to give you my number or talk to you and I regret it. You were very tall and wore glasses. Since we are the only Jews in Vancouver we should at least go for a drink.

The boy in line at Mac Demarco

I was holding my super huge, newly discovered Mac Demarco painting while in the line up for his Vogue show. We were in line together after I had met up with someone who bumped me up closer to the front that you happened to be with. I don't remember the interaction we had word for word, but you were super charming and inquisitive, and the fluorescent paint on your hands was quite the cool sight. I really can't stop thinking about how cool you are.

Baby shower gifts at the Bay

We were both picking out baby shower presents and ended up with almost identical "onesies". I joked that we better not be getting presents for the same baby. I noticed what a great smile you had and how attracted to you I felt. .....wish I had gotten your number. Coffee? If you , by some miracle, read this and respond, mention the character on the front of the onesies so that I know its you :)

Tower Encounter

I was strolling your way at Tower Beach and paused to comment on the Sun Kil Moon song coming from your iPhone. You smiled confidently and asked me to smoke a joint with you. I had to dash up the stairs and back into the real world, but would love to return to the sand and have a sunset smoke with you one of these days. Get in touch if you see this.

Hey Ms A!

You asked me to look you up so I thought I would give you a shout out. Hey Ms A! Our brief encounter this afternoon has piqued my curiosity. I would really enjoy having a longer conversation with you so that I could loose myself in your big beautiful green (possibly hazel?) eyes. Coffee? Or perhaps a drink? - The man in the black shirt & boots

Condom umbrella walking Davie

Yes you gorgeous. I gave you the right of way walking off Granville and we walked up Davie. I passed you when I should have said hello. *kicking myself You were at Hornby and I looked back to see you looking towards me. I was just heading to yoga, but I would have skipped for coffee with you.

Surrey Sport City Smile

I picked up some pet food at Sport City Butcher this afternoon around 4pm (had a light-green/OD top and short hair). You were in the back room, repackaging something that looked like Polish sausage. You're about 5 feet 7 inches tall (guessing), with dark hair. That wonderful smile really warmed up the place. Best visit there yet. You made my afternoon considerably brighter. Love the fantastic vibe. Don't ever lose it. All the best.

Fixing bikes at UBC

You came into the shop for what turned out to be a prolonged flat tire repair. You have a blue and yellow bike, red hair, and an infectious laugh. I helped you through your bike issues, laughing a lot along the way. Just wanted to say your gorgeous smile made my day and had my heart doing a lot of fluttering. You said you'll be working at UBC Farm this summer, I just hope I see you again some time!

Main Street Station

Running late for work never looked so good. A long shot, but worth the try! You were wearing a black tshirt, cuffed jeans and had a Herschel duffle over your shoulder. I would have said hi, but work was calling my name.

Manbun on the 99

I never do this, but here goes. We both got on the 99 at UBC around 4:30 on Tuesday. You sat in front of me in the accordion part. You had your hair in a man bun, and were wearing Blundstones (so was I. .. sporting Blundstones, not a man bun, that is). You looked my way a few times, but I was too shy to catch your eye. As you got up to leave, you made a comment to the person behind me about the book she was reading. Maybe you were just interested in the book! Anyhow, you are very dreamy.

green shoes and broken rules

I looked how I felt. Your green toms and black cardi indicated I wasn't ready to meet you. I let you exit the elevator, you were gentle yet polite. I tried not to be too nervous, but we both agreed for nothing afterwards. Shy and timid weekend wishes made me smile. Have a better weekend.

FedEx Delivery man

I don't remember exactly what time and date because it happened so long ago, but i remember it was sometime in mid october. You rang the doorbell and my brother answered it and I couldn't be bothered because it was kind of early for me anyway. I had to come to the door anyway because I had to pay duty and to my pleasant surprise you were totally cute and young. I looked terrible though. You told me I was lucky that I got to sleep in and asked me what I was doing up so late but.. um.. that's for me to know and you to find out. I was hoping to see you again because I had more stuff coming and also I had a shipping error so I had another chance to see you, but both times it was an older lady :(

Chivalry in New Westminster

We walked westward on Sixth Ave. starting after we crossed Seventh St. I moved to the outside of the sidewalk allowing you to stay under the narrow rain protection. You are gorgeous and clutched your small purchase close to you. I spoke of my attempt at singlehandedly keeping chivalry alive. The conversation flowed easily and you were quick to respond to my imagination. Wished I had kept walking beside you instead of stopping. Care to continue the conversation over coffee?

Pacific Cinematheque

You were the attractive red-head sitting alone in the theatre. I was the gentleman with white beard and glasses sitting by myself in the row ahead of you. We watched the Russian movie Alexander Nevsky. During intermission, we chatted briefly as I was looking for something on the floor. During the 2nd feature, The Elephant Man, I sat elsewhere with some friends, but afterwards you and I crossed paths at a Translink bus stop and I waved (and you waved back) after you took a seat on your bus. How about coffee sometime?

On a Night Train

Your name is Julie, and we sat next to each other on the Amtrak Cascades night train from Seattle to Vancouver on Sunday. I was touched that you shared your organic cheesies with me, and enjoyed our many rounds of travel-sized Connect 4. You were swallowed by the customs line before I could ask for your number, but you seem like the type that might read these. Get in touch, and let's play Risk together sometime!

Mr. Red Truck leaving work

This was a while ago but I can't seem to get it off my mind which is why I decided to post this comment. It was one moment that I will never forget or always regret because I did not make eye contact with you. You were driving behind me (blue/green Toyota), eventually side to side as I noticed you looking my way for quite some time as though you were trying to figure something out. I was distracted talking to my daughter in the car. By the time I found the courage to look at you, the light turned green and I had to make my left turn. Even if I never meet you, I want to thank you for your smile and attention - it was a turning point in my life... that I still smile about. You are truly an 'un-sung hero'.
