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 didn't stay - but I wish I had .

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.

We sat next to each other at Scotiabank Theatre, watching Passengers in 3D. You were casual cool in a nice button down, I was the fidgety brunetter with the plaid shirt and ponytail. You were snacking on nibs, I sorta wanted to snack on you. I know, cliche.

Dancing at Junction

You asked to dance with me, I was rocking the floor, which you admired, and eventually I said I needed a time-out. Was there with a couple bros that night. The real reason I left was I was tired going out after a week of being sick. Me: beard with glasses. You: light maybe reddish hair looking slim and fine. Let me know if you want to go oout again once I'm a little healthier.

My buddy and I were at Fat Burger. You and your friend were sitting there finishing your meal. You allowed us to sit with you as the place was crazy busy. You said you were going skating, and that you were a student, but not much was a spec awkward?

Jean Jacket and Kind Eyes

You, jean jacket, and toque, nice beard, kind eyes, polka dot shopping bag. Me, oversized fleece, shorts with leggings, brown toque, long hair. We were both shopping at Donald's Market, passed each other in the dairy section, saw each other in line at checkout. I was waiting outside for a friend, you walked past and we exchanged shy smiles. You seem really sweet, would love to get to know what's behind those eyes.

Late Night Safeway Babe

I said hi to you in passing at Safeway just before closing, months back. We left at similar times. Outside, it was raining. You were driving, I was walking. You asked if I had a big enough umbrella hinting the opportunity for a ride. I passed on the offer. In truth I wish I had said yes. Just over a week ago, I saw you at a different supermarket. I would like to have given you my number but the timing was inopportune, as you were arriving as I was checking out. This is the alternate extreme, though I hope you get this. I would like to not have to wait as long to see you again.

Carnegie reading room phantom.

It was early Thursday evening on the 26th of December when I unwillingly got sucked into the abyss of perhaps the greatest, darkest, blue eyes I have ever felt. This being was truly so kind and helpful when it assited a long blacked haired female friend of mine with the computer to print off some documents. We had to wait a little while for a computer, It came around to give us some advice about other printing options, and also to simply ask if we where alright?. You could say it was just doing its job, or maybe volunteering. As it seemed it being female, mid 20`s, wearing Blundstone boots for reason perhaps it came from a far place in the cold. When I recovered from the shock, I returned the following day not only to find it was not there, no one could truly say it existed or explain the happanening itself. Was it an incredibly friendly dark blue eyed phantom...or was it a she and she a human? I need to know.

Celebrities NYE Party

I saw you at the Black and White NYE Ball at Celebrities Night Club. I first met you when I was scanning my phone near the pillars at the front of the club. You asked me to meet you on the dance floor. I was wearing all black except for black and white Vans. Something about you honestly took my breath away. We briefly caught each other but your friends seemed to be pulling you in different directions. I hope we can cross paths again - Aaron

New Year's Eve at the Vancouver Hotel

We met briefly at the hotel Vancouver party and had a good laugh and dance. You were wearing a red dress, have shoulder length brownhair, I was in a blue suit with a pale purple tie. I thought you were super cool and was hoping to speak to you again, spotted you at the end coming down the stairs into the lobby and you had said my name but I was caught in a deep conversation with an old friend and could not pull myself away to come talk. I would like to have a chance to reconnect.

Flat tire in Tofino day before Christmas Eve

You kindly stopped to help my mom and I with her flat tire. You mentioned you would be at the pub the following evening celebrating your son's birthday...but when I decided to pop by, it was closed for renovations. Would love to thank you again in person.

JJ Bean on Alberni 10:30 on the top Mezzanine

You were wearing all black and a perfect bubble bun hairstyle that matching you perfectly, sneakers that fit well and comfortably, and a spark that caught me shamelessly… You were the most gorgeous and elegant girl I've ever seen. You arrived on the top mezzanine at JJBean around 10:30AM with a white/light gray wool jacket and was on the phone with tech support for few minutes. We made eye contact a few times and I so badly wanted to say hi and fix your laptop on the spot. I hope this gives me another chance to do so. Please pardon my stare but you pretty much rolled me with your beauty and I was left lingering for a while afterward sharing a pastry with my daughter. Not sure if the guy you came to met was your bf, an employee or a friend but I'd give the stars to sneak a look and maybe an introduction if our paths were to cross again. But if not, just know that you made my day. Stunningly beautiful and I haven't been able to stop thinking about your last smile since. Anyway, I know this is a long shot but if you see this, contact me. I'd like to know more about you – coffee? :)
