You Helped Me Unpark, While Out Walking Your Dog

I was pulling out of a spot, as you came by with your little white dog. You stopped and began giving me “this-close” hand signals. I didn't really need help getting out, but I sure didn't mind getting it from you – slim, lovely, close to my age (not quite 21, anymore), white pants, coloured top, beautifully-unadorned, with medium-long, strawberry blonde hair. You struck me as smart, stylish and ready to engage. Everything I like. Like a bonehead, I waved goodbye instead of waving you over and you walked off. When I came to my senses, I turned the car around and came after you. You were standing on the next corner, about to enter the park at Coal Harbour and I pulled into an inconvenient spot, just behind you. The car I'm driving (slightly beat-up dark blue VW Golf) is a shop loaner and I learned, to my horror, that the horn did not work. I called, “Excuse me” a few times, but you probably couldn't hear me over the impatiently-honking truck, behind me. The truck prevailed and I had to get out of there. But all may not be lost. Let me thank you for the help I didn't need. Have dinner with me.

Businessman In Blue

I saw you at the Fairmont Hotel Airport lounge June 22 from 7 to 9pm. You were wearing a blue suit with funky sox and brown dress shoes... but there was something more about you that peaked my interest. I am the blonde blue eyed woman you and your friend sat right in front of. You both ordered beer and a light meal. I have no idea where you are from or where you were going, but I wanted you to take me with you... hopefully one day. I never write these 'I Saw You' posts, but it's worth a shot.

Quality LUSH Honey (ft. Crusty Clark)

I texted the 250 bus for you and we got to talking about the stupidity of the transit referendum. Once we established that Christy was cunning (and also pure evil) we moved on to electoral reform, "bougie Greens", Trump + American roadtrips, and so much more in the 15 minutes before our busses arrived simultaneously. We'd make great politics pals, A! I told you where I work and to drop by... I hope you do -- J

Still crazy about you after all these years

We worked together years ago and I thought we would have a connection, but we did not. Then, I saw you again and got the same feeling. Even my cycling companion thought you were interested. You looked great.

Dreadlocks, killer smile, blue shirt on Hamilton St...

I think we might be neighbours...I see you here and there...when I do I always regret not saying hello. You were following behind my friend and I on Hamilton - we did a few dbl takes as you were crossing the street. I was trying to be cool & continue my conversation with my friend but my eyes and thoughts were on you. We should say hello next time ... could be interesting.

Leigh, the Chief Hiking yogi

We were in the same Hot class on Sunday. You had just hiked the Chief! The reflection of my lanky uncoordinated movements DEFINETLY threw your balance off and I apologize. You're originally from Toronto and your name is Leigh (Lee?). Got your name but that was unfortunelty it. Hope to catch you at another class!

Take the power back

We walked only a single block together. In that short space you mused about reversing the roles we perform with the street canvassers, and we established that we'd both been teenage telemarketers. What do you say we cover some more ground? This is an exclusive offer. Act now. Satisfaction guaranteed. (Skill testing question: You approved of how I described these forms of marketing. What did I say?)

Motorcycle Guy heading towards Denman Street

You were riding in front of me on your motorcycle, heading east on Barclay towards Denman Street. I was on my bike and you kept turning around to try and chat but we were getting too close to the Denman traffic. If you read this, let me know what shirt you were wearing and the colour of my bike!

You're not a creep

This is a long shot but... You got on the bus, we smiled, you were too attractive and so I avoided looking at you too much and pretended to be tired. I imagined getting off the bus and making out with you in the bushes. I continued to try and look disinterested. As I got off the bus you came to tell me I was very pretty , and that you weren't trying to be creepy...and what I really wanted to say.. ((you too are very handsome)) Instead of saying thank you and reamaining shy. I'm not shy !! Usually. Until my cheeks are hot with blush. Hope to see you again. Maybe not on a crowded bus.

Cute Counsellor Boy at Info Fair

Your name is Justin. You’re taking Counselling Psychology through Adler University and doing your practicum through Borstal Association. You moved to Vancouver from (near) Edmonton and are planning on going back to do your second practicum this winter. We met in a fairly unusual place and I didn’t want to blatantly ask you out in front of your classmates/my co-worker. If you end up seeing this, I would like to continue our conversation about hammocks and boy scout uniforms ;)

I saw you again

You saw me at the pool that day. And I saw You. You I-Saw-You'd me. We saw each other. For a hot minute. Then you were seeing someone else. I saw you again. Driving into the Save On Foods parkade as I was driving out. I think you saw me too. No I'm I-Saw-You-ing you. I would like to see you again.

water refill at Mec

Caught a cute smile thrown my way as you passed and then ended up by helping you re fill your hydra pack at the water fountain. I should have asked for you number then or at least a coffee , when you passed on your way out felt it may have ben a touch presumptuous but still should have, maybe you are the type of cool Vancouver woman who reads these things. If so , how does a sea wall bike ride sound.

Coffee shop cute guy

I was at this Matchstick coffee shop and I walked in with you sitting directly in front of me. You looked up from your book as I walked in, dark hair, white button up which was then opened with a white shirt inside. You had your guitar case up against the wall and you gave off this vibe of mysterious but somehow interesting aura. I thought you looked like Aaron Johnson. I noticed every seat was almost full except for the space next to you. I was contemplating on sitting next to you and maybe strike up conversation but I was too shy and I don't think I would even try. Fortunately a chair cleared up and I was able to sit. But still wondering what of I sat next to you and strike up a convo. Anyway, I am just daydreaming away. If you happen to see this post..i was the girl in the red sweater. Your secret admirer. Hope to meet you at the cafe again.

Cool Woman buying a lighter in Gastown

I randomly went into a corner shop in Gastown, you were there buying a lighter and told the clerk you have too many at home so you just wanted the cheapest one. Dirty blonde hair, somewhat tall and thin, you had a tongue stud. I had a beard and medium long brown hair. I was purposely trying to get your attention by saying something about lighters at checkout. I sensed this chill cool person, and part of me wanted to run after you and talk to you.

You saw me at the Roxy and contacted me through Facebook.

You found me on Facebook after seeing me at the Roxy. You said your name is Claudia and that you teach yoga. I wasn't sure that you're real and I'm still not, but you deleted your account before I had a chance to respond to the picture you sent and now I'm wondering if I wasted a great opportunity. Contact me again?

Dan @ the Rodeo

What happened to the cute guy in the blue button up shirt?! I was working at getting you inebriated at the Longhorn Saloon during the rodeo. For the two days (Saturday and Sunday), I was guilty for looking forward to seeing you in line. Disappointed you never grabbed my number. Fingers crossed.
