WHERE? Taking the 209 bus from Phibbs exchange to downtown WHEN? Bus left around 8:15pm In a nutshell I(lanky looking with blue jeans, brown adidas nestors, black windbreaker with hood up because I was grumpy ) was sitting at the very back of the bus facing the front and then out of nowhere you(this Daria-esque girl but with lighter hair) came on to the bus at Phibbs and sat in a seat looking out towards the back window where I was sitting. You had black specs, light-ish brown hair, were wearing a green jacket, grey tights, had a light brown-ish bag and I think you had blue gum boots on too. We were both listening to our ipods and you looked sleepy but pretty into whatever you were listening to. Anyway, I was gonna ask what you were listening to but you hopped off the bus before I had a chance and then disappeared forever. What were you listening to anyway? I need to know! Oh also, I believe you hopped off the bus inbetween Richards and Seymour. I NEED TO KNOW WHAT YOU WERE LISTENING TO!!

Christine, Christina, Kristina from Germany

I loved dancing salsa with you. I left for a few minutes to take care of the group I brought and then you were gone! Too loud to get your name and spelling 100%. Chances are odd but hope you see this ad and respond. Would love to dance with you again. Roberto.

I saw you in your car!!!

I saw you for only 10 seconds but I was smitten with love. You were a beautiful woman with blonde hair and blue eyes. I was on my bike with a red helmet on and wearing a blue/green jacket. I would love to have dinner or drinks with you (my treat) and take it from there. The first 3 letters of your license plate are 604 just like the area code here. If you are single drop me line. Cheers.

Photos, drinks and good weirdness @ the Humans show

We lined up early for the same show. Your keen eye noticed the age of my haircut. I noticed your rad tattoos and your great smile. You told me your name was like that of a small street. We had a drink and talked about awesome bands and the Peak Performance Project. We were both happy to be weird, it was cool, there was dancing. Then it got crazy in there and you disappeared among the bodies and the beats! My photos didn't turn out any good, but meeting you was a great exposure. Maybe I'll see you again at Bonobo?

Don't want to meet again...?

We had a lovely night after dancing together at Portside Pub. You said you were only in town for a few days to visit family, then heading over to Berlin. Said you didn't have Facebook, but you gave me your email contact. It doesn't work. Was that on purpose?

Gorgeous Genius

Came in early on Saturday morning with my roommate to get her bricked iPhone replaced. Your coworker was helping us but you kept adding to the conversation. Too bad the appointment wasn't with you! You are damn fine, but probably straight... Feel free to prove us wrong

Such natural beauty.

You (gorgeous, long and wavy brunette with very little (no?) makeup) approached the bus stop on Cambie and were going to stand next to me but quickly you decided to sit and share the bench with me. As you approached I glanced up at your beautiful smiling face looking my way and I just froze. I'm such a shy person when I witness someone like you; I just don't have any words. It's those times that I'd love to be able to gaze into your eyes and be still and present in a shared moment of silent beauty. I'm glad this site has this column because I'd jump at chance to meet you for coffee/tea. Fingers crossed in Vancouver.

@ Womyns Ware on Commercial

After some happy browsing and buying, I was pushing open the door of the store and noticed you giving me a very intense look. I'm curious to know what you were thinking. You: Dark hair and even darker eyes

After the canucks game. You were going back to east van. You had a yellow bouquet. We had some laughs on the ride back. Teach a dude to tango?

At the library one day

I sat next to you in the library at the community centre on Kingsway/Main in east Vancouver. We started talking because you got a spam call on your cellphone. You were working on a powerpoint presentation at the time. You were a real joy to talk to. If you see this, let's meet up sometime.

Y-(Didn't I say MORE?)-Yoga..

Leaving yyoga in kits at around 8:30-45 (We were actually in the same class across the room!).... You smiled at me from the bench where we take turns putting our shoes on. It was the kind of smile that felt SAFE... (If you live in Vancouver, you'll know what this means). We walked downstairs and out the building and you held the door open... Then we both walked towards Maple street where our paths were split, sending me into the "Woulda, shoulda, coulda..." mental conversation. But... I playfully I said "Have a good night". You were either really shy, or politely uninterested as you turned back to reply. I don't like living with 'what if's'... So here's my note to the universe. ;)

Across the Runway

I saw you looking at me across the aisle at Vancouver Fashion Week. I smiled at you and you looked away. Were you looking at me? Why didn't you smile back? I caught you staring at me a couple of times...too shy to smile back? You sat in the third row and your friend next to you was wearing a baseball cap. I sat across the runway from you in the second row. I'm the girl in the fuchsia pink top- the one you didn't smile back at.

Skytrain Smiles

You were waiting for the YVR train on the platform at Oakridge on thursday, I was heading towards Richmond. You had a gorgeous smile and dark red hair (I think, I was pretty transfixed on the smile), I was the scruffy lookin' guy grinning from ear to ear. Neither of us could look away. I winked, you blushed, and the train started moving again. I'm still kicking myself for not getting off and saying hi. I'd love to make up for my mistake and buy you dinner sometime.

Skytrain ConTroll

We were both heading eastbound on the Skytrain at rush hour Monday evening. You got off at New West. I offered you my seat, but you smiled and said you'd prefer to stand, as you'd been sitting at a desk all day. I was intrigued by your floral neck tattoo, purple highlights, the troll doll key chain hanging from your pocket, and the Pallbearer album bleeding from your headphones. Wanna hit up Scrape and grab a beer sometime?

Server at AnnaLena

You were working this evening at AnnaLena and captivated me...petite and incredibly gorgeous with a stunning tattoo on your back. I could hardly wait for you to come by our table again just to tell us about the food - any food! :) I would love to take you for dinner on your night off!

Red Notebook, Art Gallery

I saw you at the art gallery, Tuesday evening. You wore a brown sweater, plain pants and black Nike shoes. Your hair is curly and shoulder length, you wear glasses. I saw you several times but at one moment you approached a piece of art near me and smirked, then continued to open your red notebook to write something down. That was my opportunity to introduce myself but I was too flustered to speak. I’m in Vancouver very briefly, please contact me if you’d like to get tea soon!

epicurian March 23

I came in to grab a coffee to go with a friend and your energy consumed my attention even though you were tucked away in the corner seat. You were intently working on something. Sure wish I was alone and not rushing to a meeting so I could have asked if you need a second opinion for whatever you were working on. Thanks for that little jolt of bilss - just having to deal with the after effects :) This is a huge long shot but worth a try .... would love to connect and see if there is a chance for a replay.

We smiled at each other at Oakridge Mall

Around 3pm on Tues 24 March, our eyes met and we both smiled as we passed each other at the Oakridge Mall. You exited the Mall (White Spot) and if I hadn't been en route to a work meeting I would have stopped. Thanks Gary

Spanish Banks with Daisy & Chloe

You had a purebred pit bull named Daisy who immediately became smitten with my dog Chloe. I really liked talking to you. Wanted to ask you out but didn't. It's too bad humans aren't as unhindered with their affections as our dog companions. Call me!

Beauty & the Bus

You, long dark brown wavy hair (you were listening to music on your phone), sat down near me at the back. I was wearing black leather jacket & a Motorhead shirt...and a hat. We smiled at each other a few times. I wanted to say something to ya & now I wish I had. Well, I couldn't stop thinking about you, usually I scare people away...not that time, you caught me off guard gorgeous! Los'fer words I guess.......OR one might say I chickened out lol. Maybe I'll see ya 'round sometime! By the way I'm Stephen...drop Facebook.

Remorseful Makeup

You were driving a dark blue Fit (122 SMR) between 29th and 45th on Rupert while applying makeup. You're pretty. You know what's not pretty? Air bag bruises and crying a lot because you've killed a child.

Superstore Butter Blunder

I was carrying an arm load of ramen noodles and frozen peas, and when I got close to the checkout I dropped my kilo of butter on the floor. We both reached for it, but I was so embarrassed that it completely phased me that it was the perfect set-up for a cheesy rom-com, and simply replied "I got it," snatched it, and continued on my way. I was quite taken with you and have been kicking myself for the past hour-and-a-half for being a living embodiment of the forever alone meme. I hope we can continue the cheese!
