Grouse Mt Gondola

Hi "just a person", aka not a ski instructor ;) Something inside is telling me you aren't just your average run of the mill person. There's something about you that intrigues me. I couldn't help but look through your bus window, as I walked by, wondering who you are. You looked at me too. Then we both did that thing and turned around and looked at each other again. You have a cute little gap between your front teeth and nice blue eyes and I think you had a kiwi accent. I hope you see this ad and respond. I'd like to meet up and learn more about you.

Hillcrest Hot Tub

I was playing a game in the hot tub, in my head, that I usually play in the hot tub, called "how many people in this hot tub would I want to date?" and after staring at everyone, the answer is pretty much always zero. I started to play the game today, and you walked in and sat across from me, so I stopped playing the game and concentrated on not making eye contact with you. You have short curly-ish hair. I have short hair that was in a very tiny ponytail. I think we smiled at each other. Then when we were in the change room, your locker was above mine.

Burner at the Squamish Gas Station

You asked me what I was famous for at Burning Man. I asked you what you would do if you create anything in your life inspired by the festival what it would be. We talked about graduation, and community, and how it is the first two go when the going gets tough. You told me you teach kids how to build lego robotics. I told you I teach kids how to ride horses and get woken up in the night by avalanches. And then I lost my nerve, and got in my car and drove away. Then I decided that was stupid, and turned around and looped back, but you were already gone. Want to continue that conversation somewhere that is not a gas station parking lot?

Braiding on the #3

I was the woman groggily re-braiding my hair on the #3 bus just before 8am Friday morning. You were the guy sitting across from me making a pretty good show of not looking at me until you surprised me when you went to leave. Thanks for the nice words. I wish I had been awake enough to return them properly. Say hi earlier next time. :)

Reading a hardcover book on the #10

You got onto the #10 @ Granville & Pender at approx. 540pm. You were wearing a red jacket and had a canvas beige bag on your shoulder. You pulled out a book with either the title or author in red capital letters "PAUL COL...." (i cannot remember the rest). At Davie and Granville, you sat next to me - I was wearing a black coat, grey scarf, and have shoulder length brown hair. I had a knapsack on my back and a black bag with a red purse on my lap. I was so fascinated by the hardcover book you were reading! You looked at your cell once and put on a grey toque just before you got off at 11th and Granville. My stop is 13th & Granville. We live in the same neighbourhood! Want to meet for coffee sometime and discuss the wonder and delight of old fashioned hard cover books?

At Joes Grill for brunch

You had salt and pepper hair, the Nandos chicken tattoo'd on you, and a gregarious, infectious laugh. We were both in line to pay, and you were joking with the waiter about how had no interest in football, but would still watch it that day to hang out with your friends. It was sweet. I also hate football, we should go out sometime. I was the girl in the black toque, grey t shirt and black jean jacket. :)

On the train this morning

I saw you on the train this morning, heading downtown. I got on at Royal Oak and you were already there, sitting at the back of the car, wearing a blue and gray touque. You got off at Granville and as you stood up, you raised your arms and stretched. I couldn't stop looking at you. Me: blonde, wearing a plaid skirt and purple jacket. Hope you read this. :)

Beautiful Woman with a nose ring on Skytrain (Canada Line) to Downtown

Taking the skytrain was never the favourite part of my daily commute to work - until - a week ago. Last Tuesday I saw you in an overly crowded train. I remember I simply couldn't stop looking at you the moment I laid eyes on you. I think you got on the train at the Olympic Village Station. We caught eyes for a moment and continued to exchange eye contacts. At one point you looked down and had your eyes closed for a brief moment and looked at me after your opened your eyes. I have been hoping to run into you again ever since. You were a stunning woman with a nose ring (left), I was the guy with glasses wearing a black peacoat and I got off at the Yaletown station. I wish I hadn't gotten off the train and had stayed behind to talk to you. I may very well never see you again, that's regret.

Gabbys Last Night

Last night at Gabby's at the Me and Mae show, I couldn't take my eyes off of you! You had long dark hair and a beautiful smile. I was there to see West of Memphis and you were there to see Me and Mae. I walked by your table hoping to say hi, but you looked away. Then you moved closer and looked over to me several times. Sorry for staring, I can't stop thinking about you. I'd like to see you again.

I truly saw you and I ran.

I saw you, and then I bolted! haha, we were literally just in line at safeway on 4th, and we talked about proper grocery store etiquette, and then about my weird dinner choices. It's because I've been sick for the last 2 weeks! You were wearing a toque and grey wintery stuff and in your mid to late 30's and I don't think I've never been so dazed? on a first encounter. ever. and I've never written one of these, but how could i not when it's a half an hour later and I'm in my apartment and I'm still smiling about a silly chance encounter.

Cigarette smoking Asian girl (beige jacket)

This is a long shot - but here goes. I always see you smoking on the corner of Howe and Smithe (right in front of waves). I think we might work in the same building. Last time I saw you, you were wearing a beige/light brownish winter coat, talking to some Asian dude in the lobby as I walked into the elevator. You're unbelievably cute and I'm cripplingly shy to approach you. We should crab a coffee and smoke!

Safeway at King Edward Mall in Vancouver

By fish counter, you were buying fish and you suggested I buy Tilapia with coconut coatings, which I did. Then you suggested I buy Adam's peanut butter when I was by that Aisle. Which I did. For some reason, you had powered me. We exchanged greetings in check in line. Sorry, that I did not wait to see if you could tell me how to cook that Tilapia. Please help me.

Afghan Horseman

I was waiting for someone and I guess you were too so the waitress brought you to look at me and asked you "Is that her?" I looked up and smiled. Of course I wasn't your date, but I wish I had been. You are handsome, tall, with light hair. I am Caucasian, brunette, 5'7". What a funny coincidence. Maybe we could meet intentionally next time? :)

Girl with Hope in Shadows calender @ Continental Cafe

Must admit I was jealous, you were the woman with to toque wearing all black sitting with your back at the window, I was the tall guy wearing black (with the black/white hat), well you were looking outside the window at a girl standing in front of the cafe on her phone, I'm guessing you were more interested in her, (I don't want to make assumptions) & just saw me as just another guy (if helps I was transitioning to female, but decided to stop & feel I'm now non-binary/genderneutral I am on estrogen) Anyway who knows.
