Heart of - Probably - Gold

Doubt you'll see this, but I saw you at the Lansdowne Centre food court volunteering with a group of elderly people. You wore a blue UBC hoodie and I was the one in the red sweater who flashed some smiles your way. I just really wanted to tell you how rare it is for someone our age to take the time to volunteer, so kudos! Maybe you can let me take you out a coffee or a bubble tea as a reward for your kindness (and of course to get to know you)

Were those roses for me?

You were standing at the entrance to Vancouver City Centre station with a few single-stemmed roses in both hands. Was this a pre-Valentine's Day stunt? Are we women supposed to approach you to ask about them? Were you selling them? I don't know what your deal is, but I commend you for your quirkiness.

Commercial Street Eye-Lock

We walked past each other on the Drive just after Grandview Highway. You were the tall blonde bearded man (gave off the Lumber-sexual vibe, but I don't think you were wearing plaid). I can't remember what you were wearing because I just kept staring at your eyes. I was the 5'10 brunette in a royal blue wool coat and grey knit circle scarf. Coffee?

Outside MEC on a rainy morning

You were waiting outside MEC before it opened, both of us a bit wet from biking in the rain. I should have stayed to continue chatting! Feel free to write if you felt similarly. And I hope you get some fenders for your nice bike.

Books and glances at Prado

I usually never do this, but we exchanged a series of glances this afternoon. You sat near me for a while before I had to head out. Me: tall, had a hat on, sitting in the sunshine. If you are interested in getting coffee, tell me what color touque you were wearing.

Fascinating People

We locked eyes for a few seconds as you said "...fascinating people..." and walked by with your friend. I'm curious - let's go for a walk!

DQ lynn valley

You - beautiful blonde with sultry blue eyes. You exchanged electrical glances with Me- grey hair blue eyes who was there with sister. I think you have a boy named taylor as I have one too.

Missed Glances

I noticed you before I even walked onto the train. Black coat, blue jeans, red backpack, blonde hair and a beautiful face that made me feel a bit shy. You were chatting with an asian fellow with glasses. I was wearing black and grey sweats/hoodie and a black ballcap. We narrowly missed a number of glances in each others' directions. I was working with a client, otherwise I would have come said hi. This method of reaching out seems a bit odd, but I really wanted to share a smile with you.

Crossword Cutie

You sat in the middle of the bus working on a book of crossword puzzles. I was the handsome (or so I'd like to think) Asian guy who kept blatantly stealing glances at you. I think you're really pretty and I wanted to say hi and ask about your puzzle, but that'd be creepy, right? Posting an anonymous I Saw You is totally less creepy/weird/desperate. Anywho, if you ever get stuck on a crossword, I'm pretty good with the movie stuff!

Australian at Save On

You were a rower and good at math. I was a blonde who couldn't decide what to buy.

Scotiabank Theatre - solo date night with self

Colin, we are basically the same person, as you said. I wished I had come straight over to you after the film was done to ask what you thought hoping we once again had something in common. Can we run into one another again? I'd consider giving up my seat in the back next time and turn it into an actual 'date'

Driving the 402 Bus

I was a little lost and trying to get back to Richmond centre. I hopped on your bus and we had a chat about how much Compass gates and Ikea artwork sucks. I was on my way to an friend's gallery show and I regret not getting your number. Meet up and keep talking?

Princeton pub

it was karaoke night and I was sitting with my neighbour by the bar. You were playing pool with your friends wearing a black hoodie and toque. Blue eyes. I kept staring at you. Wish we would have met

Granville island Rainy Day

We crossed paths in the food court of the market. I was the guy wearing a grey sweater third wheeling a young couple with a baby. I was to captivated to muster anything more than a hello. I saw you again in the market later on but when I finally managed the courage to come over to say hello you were gone. I went out the door to see if I could see you but you were no where to be found. I'll chalk this up to a learning curve on just being a man and introducing myself. In the meantime this is just a shot in the dark, because why not!

Cha Cha you're a foley

We matched on tinder. You asked what I was doing because you like to hear about the mundane in peoples lives, I thought you were special, from our short couple chats. What happened?

Where: On our little screens

What were you listening to?

Long golden hair which you used to hide your face grey trench coat and jogs tucked into you socks tucked into your slip-ons. We caught each other glances once, maybe twice. We both had music playing to ourselves. You bobbed your head and was into it, I liked your style and I was into you. I'm stoked you're out there. I was in the back half... hoodie and blue sweat pants laundry day style.

Cactus Club - Yaletown

Was with a friend and saw you in a booth with your girlfriend. Very striking looking classy lady - before I had a chance to try to talk to you, you left. Would like to go for a coffee, glass of wine? whatever strikes the mood

Elevator in the Marine Building

I was the girl with the red lips, and the red coat at the crosswalk. We made eye contact. We proceeded to not only go in to the same building, but the same elevator. There was such good tension. You told me to have a nice day before getting off. I could have sworn I was in a movie. Thanks for that.

Just around the corner - Cambie & Bdwy on the #17

You came on the bus @ Cambie & 7th, I left at the next stop. In the time in between we exchanged quite a few glances - you have a great goatee, amazing clear eyes & were wearing a black toque & black ski jacket, carrying 2 bags (& tapping your right hand a bit). Me - long black wool coat, short salt & pepper hair & black framed glasses. Felt some electricity each time I was brave enough to look into your eyes and smiled shyly at you as I left the bus. If you felt something too - how about a longer bus ride together soon to get acquainted more?

Cute tall guy at the Red Room for Marten Horger

I was quite tipsy and my friend was the gate keeper to protect me from creepos trying to dance with me. She let you through because you were tall and handsome. We danced and I left with my friend. We later bumped into you on the street while grabbing a cab and you were munching on a slice of pizza. I was ushered in the cab without a chance to give you my number. Would love to have another dance party.

Connection @ Safeway

We caught each others eyes as you were headed into the Commercial and Broadway Safeway and I was leaving the parking lot. I definitely felt you see me. You were wearing all black like me, I had my camera strapped around my neck and my hair in a pony tail. As I looked back at you I could see your head turning back as we just missed our second glance. Sometimes, I wish I wasn't so shy...

Cute blond guy at Chill Winston

I was your server and you were very cute. Your friend's name was Justin. I don't even know if you are gay, but got some subtle vibe you might be. If I am not off and you see this, hit me up :)

Upset at Gilmore

You were quite distraught outside the skytrain station and I gave you a shoulder to cry on. What happened that day seemed to be the icing on a rather bitter cake that you'd been served the past 6 months. If you need someone help restore your faith in humanity or just an open ear to feel comfortable around, I can do that. You seem like you could do with some more good folks in your life.

used to bother me until I realize it is someone confessing their ugliness for all to see.
