A Beautiful Sunday Morning

It was a lovely Sunday morning in downtown. Going to Church was never been so exciting until I met this gorgeous lady by my side, neither do I expect to pay as close attention to anyone during a Sunday mass. But things just started to become more exciting when I exited the building, run for a cup of coffee, and just try to forget about you, when suddenly, as I walk to the corner of Granville and W Pender, there you are on your phone, holding a cup of iced coffee. We had a very brief moment to introduce ourselves... But that's about it, too bad I didn't get your number, but hopefully, we could still bump into each other someday. I hope you'll get a chance to read this, Nicole.

In awe of you

You just left the bus at kootney loop and man, how badly I wanted you to stay on this bus. You: brown skirt, black shoes, rain jacket the most beautiful face I've ever seen in my life, Me: grey beanie and pretty much all black (cause I'm heading to work) and a back bag. You may have noticed me cause I kept looking at you every now and then, but how can you blame me! I don't know if anybody has told you this, but you're utterly beautiful and especially when you're focused on reading your book, I really wanted to talk to you but there was no seat available near you. I don't even know if you're ever going to read this but you're the best thing that happened to me this summer and I hope that you have a great day x

Electrician fixing Cardero St. power line

You were in a crew of three, wearing a beige khaki shirt, dark beard, dark pants and a green hard hat, to fix the snapped power line on Cardero St. between Nelson and Barclay from about 5:30 pm to 10:00 pm. I watched the repair from an open window near the trucks (fascinating!). You looked up a couple of times, I smiled back and later walked in front of your truck (jean shorts, scarf, dark green jacket and umbrella) while you were finishing up a call. Got a lovely smile from you that I’m having a hard time forgetting! I should have knocked on your window to say hi and a big thank you for the hard work so here it is! If you see this, I'd love to treat you to a beer as an actual thanks! Please high five your team for me too. :)

We were waiting for the skytrain, both wearing the same shoes and you smiled me and said cool shoes, and we joked about how mine were cleaner! The train came and I sat down, but you stood.

Blood Donor Clinic

You: tall, dark t-shirt & shorts. Me: long hair, tattoos, t-shirt, sitting at the snack table behind with a couple of people. I noticed you had a 1st time donor sticker on and you weren't with anyone. I tried to sneak a couple peeks at you cuz I thought you were really handsome and I wanted to see how your first time went. Also I wanted to say Thank You for donating. What you did was really awesome and I hope your next time you are able to bring some friends with you. I don't know if this is something you would be but life's all about taking chances whatever the outcome might be

We were both perusing the men's section at Apartment. We discussed sweaters and headphones. You were cute and I was flustered. I am not used to people talking to me in public (given the headphones and whatnot usually). Let's grab a drink sometime? Also is it weird to post this? I feel weird ha.

Me: Tall, cute bus driver with short, brown hair We talked about your injury, your daredevilery, the power of mind over matter, and my tight hammies, among other things.

You complimented me and made my day!

You: tall, dark hair, beautiful eyes. Me: a redhead in a green jacket and faded ripped jeans. We made eye contact across separate checkouts and then you stopped me at the elevator to tell me I looked great. The unexpected compliment brightened my day. I wish I'd had time to say more than "thank you" before the elevator doors closed.

VIP Bike Parking in front of produce shop 41st st. Kerrisdale

I saw you enter the produce shop I was in and get in line behind me. You clearly brought your bike with you and I had hoped your bike was locked to the same parking meter as mine out front; it was. we shared a few words upon unlocking our bikes and you commented on our "VIP Parking" for the produce shop. I meant to say something more but got distracted by someone spilling blueberries. I looked back to say something, but you smiled at me and were leaving. I couldn't stop thinking about you all the way home... and I may have just biked through that area today at the same time hoping to run into you... If you get this, maybe we could share some VIP parking in front of a coffee shop next time.

White Caps Game Sept 26-- Section 114 Row 5

You were wearing jeans, plaid shirt, red shoes and was with a friend. Me... wearing white t-shirt, blue jacket, black pants and I brought mom to the game.

Are you tired?

Because you've been running through my mind all day. Sorry about the corny joke. I saw you jogging tues night along the seawall wearing a white tank with your earphones in. You're a cute asian girl that ran with a look that can only be described as pissed-off determination. You were on snapchat (I think) while you were jogging and I thought it was super cute because you were clearly out of breath (ironic because you took my breath away). Ok, I'm done with the puns. I was the guy out walking his chocolate lab puppy, would love to see you again.

Beautiful Angel at Safeway

We were at the bulk items at Safeway and I was on your way and you were on mine. You passed me some paper strips and I said Thank You! but I should have said more. Your eyes are the most beautiful ones I have ever seen. I thought I have lost you, you were gone in a blink. However, I found you and I got the fortune those magical eyes touched me again before you left. You are an Angel.

Bearded runner: I watched you stumble off a curb

I was riding my bike way to dance class, stopped at the light at 10th and Main: black cutoff tights, long red hair, sunglasses. I watched you running north on Main, beard and black shorts and tank. I thought you looked great, you looked at me, our eyes kind of locked, and then you missed the curb! Aw man. It was just a little stumble, but so cute and funny and classic. I should have smiled and asked if you were okay! I'd love to re-live that and laugh about it with you.

You were the blond on the 9am ferry from Swartz Bay working in the coastal cafe. I had a tray in my hand and was getting a coffee when you offered to help me, but I said I was fine because I work in the industry. I would have rather chatted you up but you were at work.

99 b-line to kits

I entered the back of the bus, sat down and there you were. Sitting there with your cap on - jamming to your music. I was so blown away at your eyes, as soon as I sat down - we connected them multiple times..I was wearing a grey/white tank top with blue shorts and had my skateboard in hand.. I had to take off my headphones in hope to starting a conversation with you, but it didn't follow through. After failing at getting off at the same stop as you in hope on giving you my piece of mind, my phone rang and my friend interrupted my opportunity. I'm on that rout almost everyday, next time let's make it happen!

JJ Bean Morning Coffee Convo

We were in line for coffee this morning around 10am. I asked you if you worked in film because you were dressed nicely and your friend was covered in paint. We had a small conversation before my coffee was ready and as I was leaving you said bye to me and used my name. I left without asking your name but went back to leave my number with the barista for you in case you asked about me. Is that the JJ where you always take your breaks because I'd like to see you again...

I was sitting/texting on the steps of a condo bldg (between York and 1st Ave), watching you put your gym bag? into your SUV. We chatted briefly, you popped into the store on the corner and came back to your car...and then I left walking. I waved, you waved back.

You are a big driver, you got HUGE arms! I rode your bus and tried to start a conversation about your route; minutes before I was fantasizing about asking for your phone number... Obviously it didn't happen but It would have been great.

You caught me eating donuts out of the box!

You interrupted my snack time to tell me I make wearing glasses look good (or something to that effect). I laughed and said thank you but feel like maybe you thought I was laughing at you? I didn't mean it that way. You just caught me stuffing my face with my favorite treats and I didn't know how to react in a more cool way! Lol Thanks ♡
