Green hair and pretty eyes

My friend and I walked onto the bus and you and I smiled at eachother briefly. I saw that some big drunk dude behind you kept attempting to talk to you so I asked how your night went. You were with friends at the Pint and my friend and I had left the beach. You showed us some of your make up work from film school, and jokingly asked for a bite of my burger when the other drunk guy started pillaging my friends fries. You introduced yourself and told us to find you on Facebook but I didn't have any luck finding you. Thought I should give this a go.

Quiznos on Broadway

You were ordering sandwiches at the Bayswater & Broadway Quiznos (in Kits). You gave me a winning smile when i waltzed in and asked the sandwich maker to fill my water bottle. And a second smile as I left. You're white, brown shaved hair. I was wearing a blue men's business shirt and flowing badass leopard print pants. I considered asking for your number as I left but chickened out.

Gorgeous eyes at No Frills

Our eyes locked for a few seconds as you were leaving the store and I was going in. You had a mysterious smile on your face, my heart skipped a beat. I thought the guy behind you was with you, so went in the store. As you walked away saw you were not, but it was too late..

At 8th & Main store on Main Street

We passed each other on sidewalk and both turned around to view each other again. You young and handsome in shorts and T, me in white shorts and white top, longish blonde hair. I went in to store and you came around and walked past store window couple times looking for me. I waved and you came in and asked if I was married, I said no. I would like a total redo of what happened next. Don't know why I brushed you off, want to meet again and start over??

Keith Logan Hat with Adele

You wore a Keith Logan hat and were with a drag queen dressed as Adele. I asked if you liked spicy food and you said 'mmm. Paella.' I told you I'd call but lost your number. Mine is in your phone under 'Toasty'. Call me. I love a man who loves Adele.

Gas Town Bike Races

You, a pretty brunette, late 40's, standing at the fence across from the hairpin turn, close to the TV Camera. I was the guy with blond hair to your right a few feet away. We exchanged glances several times, then I wandered off to other parts of the track. Let's meet for coffee or a drink.

Small Moments Come Vivid

Passed by you on Carrall between Water and Cordova. I was walking north carrying a brown shopping bag wearing cut offs and white tshirt, tattoo sleeves. When we saw each other you didn't exactly do a double take- more like a head jerked back, eyes wide smile jam. Like you were surprised and like what you saw. As I passed you I looked away and grinned huge. And I swooned (who knew that was actually a thing?) and that certainly hasn't happened before. You looked a little bike-ish with a flipped up cap and clothes I don't remember. That physical reaction was somethin' else or maybe it was dehydration (Ha!) Let me buy you a beer and we can drink about it.

On Glasses, Mahogany Guitars and Banjolele

We kept going off on these awesome conversational tangents, while I was shopping. I thought you did a great job during your first day at work. It was a really fun conversation, I enjoyed it very much, and if you'd like to continue it, please get in touch!

#16 Bus PokemanGo player

You sat next to me and played Pokeman Go. I asked you to show me how it works. Then told you about a man on Commercial Drive who was fed up with people traipsing through his front lawn and he posted a sign saying "get a life". You said you were caught up in it and that you worked in the industry. Did you not notice every woman and gay man was enthralled with you? You are quite a handsome catch! Love for you to show me more.....about PokemanGo that is.

Disarmingly beautiful girl working at the Perrier Tent at Pemberton

I approached you and awkwardly complimented you on your beauty, dropped my drink on the ground, tried to maintain a casual demeanor while we chatted about the job, which you seemed to be only partly enjoying, and I found out your name was Rachael. I sidled off a little flustered back to my group but couldn't seem to stop my eyes from wandering back to you and we made eye contact several times thereafter. The next day I came back with a Giraffe (friend) and you were out front in the same mint coloured dress and flower ring around your head. I, probably too enthusiastically, said 'Hi Rachael!" and you said, with a grin "Ummm Brian, right?" to which I replied "Nope! Not even close"....that's how I knew you totally remembered me :-)... In any case we didn't speak, as you were talking with a coworker, most likely discussing ways of avoiding contact with man named Brian who was now wearing a ridiculous getup and trying to see you at every opportunity. I came back later that night to finally ask you if you'd like to go out after the festival but the tent was closed and my heart sunk. I, now wearing the aforementioned Giraffe costume, kicked myself and slunk away a little heart broken, which must have looked both adorable and tragic simultaneously to the remaining staff. If you're out there Beautiful Perrier Rachael there's a sad Giraffe that would love to see you again and take you to dinner.

Heidi at Hillcrest Hot tub

A few months ago you saddled up next to me in the hot tub with a big grin and great eye contact. We talked and you told me you're a nurse and trying to do more aerial ropes. I was recently single and a little rusty! We left when the pool closed. I figured I'd run into you again in the gym or pool, but I haven't. Drinks sometime?

You popped into Lucy's Diner...

...just to compliment the way I rocked my black fedora. You: Tall, Asian, baseball cap, headphones, knee brace. Me: black hat, burgundy long sleeve, cargo shorts. Unfortunately sitting with mom and the little sister, all I could muster was a mere 'thanks', a nod, and a smile. Wish I was with other company; I would have at least asked for your name.

Thin White Duke Sighting @ The Rag

You came into the rag machine wearing almost all white and leather shoes. You parked your bike outside and had black sunglasses on. You asked me where my favorite spot was for thrifting and said you were into blondie-punk as well as ask me if I worked full time. You briefly mentioned the mod movement and told me you just cut your hair. I thought you were really cool but you left before I asked your name :((( come visit the rag machine again this week!!

Crazy Beautiful Eyes

You were ahead of me in line. Light skin, dark hair and stunning blueish/greenish eyes wearing sweat pants and a pajama-like top. You must be half Asian and half White or something exotic like that. Whatever it may be, you're 100% Gorgeous. Your eyes blew me away and I couldn't stop sneaking glances. I had grey shorts and a black top with Ray Ban Sunglasses ordering my usual Americano. We should go for a hike sometime.

Nice watch !

Never done this before... Lets see how this goes. Saw you at the KFC on Broadway tonight around 945 ish. Saw you in line behind me... Your eyes!! So nice. Talked a bit about your watch. If you're single, we should totally grab a drink or something. Ps honey mustard is the best dipping sauce!

Awesome lady July 15 , 9:15 99 B-line argument Thank you

I got on the bus on Cambie and I sat in between you and a guy who decided to spread his legs open when I sat down. I asked him if he could give me a bit of space and he became belligerent and you stood up for me. I really appreciated it but I was so upset I only realized I didn't thank you once I got off the bus. Maybe I can take you out for lunch or something! You seemed rad.

Knight in shining Jeep

You were driving by as my friend fell off her bike and you circled and stopped to check on us, you were so concerned & kind to stop. You were wearing a light blue button up, light sand chinos and brown dress shoes, I was wearing black jeans and black boots with a grey shirt, riding a blue bicycle. I would like to see you again and repay your kindness.

Bass Coast Geo Dome Friday Night

You: Black framed glasses and hoodie, showed up at the white geodesic dome with your buddy at the camp I was at. You climbed up to the top hammock in the dome after your buddy refused to. Me: Tired girl in the hammock, asked if you were satisfied with your hammock achievement. I didn't mean to be rude, it was a long night of creepy men and I was having none of it by that point. But I admired your intelligence and felt bad about my not-so-welcoming demeanour the next day. I was hoping to run into you again; maybe I did, but I didn't get a chance to dance with you.

Skater Girl?

I was eating some Vindaloo at Siddhartha's and you walked by carrying a skateboard and wearing an East Van hoodie. Me in my black Bowie t-shirt wearing brown Buddy Holly specks. After making eye contact we both barely cracked a smile but I hear that's something of a rare event in this pretentious town. I was moved by this simple gesture and I know this says more about how lonesome I am than anything else. Having said that, I'd love to share a conversation with you sometime over coffee or tea. I'm on holiday for another week so time is an issue but I'm also down for texting if time does run out. I'm a progressive minded 40 year old but people are usually in disbelief when I tell them my age. I guess I have good genes (I was adopted so I'm not sure) but I do try to stay in shape especially as I age.
