We should smile together

I come into the coffee shop now and then. You were an ordinary barista. You always remembered my name and smiled with your eyes when you handed me my coffee. And you stayed awhile read a book after almost every your shift. It is ridiculous, but I was curious about you. What your name is. What you were reading. And I wanted to talk about books. I thought just because of my boredom. That day you made a small mistake and you told me ‘you were in space’. This was cute. And your soft and low laugh between words was quite attractive. I like like you. I haven’t seen you lately, however. I want to see you again. I don't want to admit it but I greatly miss your smile.

Brunette Hipster on the 99-Bline, Arbutus and Broadway

Thanks again. I think I'm supposed to write some witty romantic blurb here. You were wearing a black five panel hat and had long-ish brown hair. If you do read this, message me something that confirms it's you.

Rainy day bus ride up Main St

It was a rainy, crappy day on a stuffed bus and you smiled at me when I saw you. Honestly, that never happens. I feel invisible most of the time in this city. I was super cranky, huddled up in a scarf, having a bad day. So thanks, I needed that. You: cute, blue eyes, dark hair, friendly energy. Keep being friendly!

Emma at Moja

So how did your screen play turn out? Did the roommate lie to the girlfriend? Did the girl freeze to death waiting on the fire escape? Did you ask me to get drinks sometime?

Charlatan, Commercial Drive October 15th

I was wearing a Big Bear California baseball hat, blonde hair, blues eyes, denim jacket. I was sitting with my girlfriend in the corner by the door. You were sitting at the end of the bar with a friend. I thought you were going to come and say hello. We kept stealing looks at each other. I kept getting caught looking at you, I'd smile & look away. The rest of our party arrived, your friend left & then you left. I hope you see this & say Hello.

Dear John

We were lined up along the brick wall near the front of the coat check line at the end of the night. You caught me looking at you (twice), we smiled at each other, and you asked me how I was doing. I was speechless. We introduced ourselves but didn't get much further than that. The crowd was a little overwhelming. I must say, you are very attractive and have a really comfy energy. I was so floored by you, I froze. I left with my jacket, but regrettably not with your number. I think your name was John?

I Mother Earth concert

We were talking about how we listened to the band 20 years ago. You were in Ontario at the time. You accidentally gave the bartender your debit card instead of credit. You are handsome! I have brown hair and was wearing a black tank and black jeans. I wish I had stayed longer to chat.

Buddy at Budgies

You're from Montreal and wore an Expos hat...well. Our chat was brief but somehow delightful. Might have been that smile of yours that stayed with me. Either way, decided I'd rather reach out than let it drift away down main street like a tired trend. Hope you enjoyed your dinner. Neighbourhood drink some time?

We saw eachother in 7-11 at about 7:30 am. You grabbed a coffee. You were behind me in the line up to pay and you said I was gorgeous. In my shyness I said thank you and walked away but can't get you out of my head. You drove a large red utility type truck.

Brunette girl in wine jumper in Lidl Ballinteer

I'm the guy in the navy, striped t-shirt that walked by you in the wine isle at around 9pm in Lidl Ballinteer on Oct 12 2016. We locked eyes for a moment, but neither of us said anything.. Probably because we were both on the phone! Which is a shame, because you looked very friendly. If I *had* said anything, I probably would've made a fool of myself anyway; which is a compliment to you, because that only tends to happen when I'm taken back by something.. Like someone who is absolutely beautiful, for example:) Anyhoo, on the one in a million chance that you see this, feel free to let me know. Perhaps then, I can at least ask to buy you a coffee sometime instead of saying nothing. Cheers, J

Redhead at Subway

Okay so I never thought I would be this person, but here we go! You used to work at the grocery store near my place on the West Side. I always thought you were really cute, and sometimes I would make smalltalk, though I don't like to flirt too much with people who are at work. Anyway I came into Subway (how romantic!) With my friend and you were already there. You said hi enthusiastically and then I think seemed embarrassed when you realized you didn't really know me! You're tall with red hair and drive a Honda. I know your first name and I wont put it here, but is starts with S. I haven't seen you at the grocery store, and my best guess is that you don't work there anymore. You are gorgeous, though, and seem nice (and sarcastic, which is a plus!) And so here I am. Maybe we csn grab dinner sometime?

Girl waiting in the Radiology Department at VGH

We had the shared misfortune of needing CT scans for the same issue, on Thanksgiving no less. I had the good fortune getting to spend a few minutes talking with you while we sat waiting. You'd just gotten back from working up north, and were about to jet off again, pending how things turned out that afternoon. You mentioned you might like to get more into outdoors activities, after the experiences of your last job. We got each other's names, and I was discharged prior to you. I was touched by vulnerability you showed me while we were both a bit scared. If I may be so bold, I also found you insanely good looking. I wanted very much to get your number, but given the situation, doing so felt too inappropriate to be chalked up as daring. I very much hope that a.) that everything turned out ok for you at the hospital and that you will be fine, and b.) whether or not you go to your friend's wedding, that you see this post and might have felt a similar way; I would very much like to know that you're going to be OK and to get to follow up with our conversation about getting more into the outdoors.

54-40 Concert, Commodore Ballroom

You and your friend were in front of my friend and me last night (Saturday October 8th) on the floor, maybe 8 -10 rows back from the center of the stage. You started talking to me between the opening act and main act. Your friend had to take her shoes off but you said that floor wasn't the safest to do so. We had a really nice talk about music. I said my favorite band of all time is Led Zeppelin. You said you'd seen 54-40 before, they're a great live band, and I'd enjoy them; also, you have a 20 year old daughter and you're a dental assistant. I said I have a 19 year old son and I'm a teacher. You remembered my name, which is quite unusual, but I don't remember yours because it takes me a while to remember one and it was loud in there. You kept appearing and reappearing unexpectedly and I didn't get the chance to give you my number. I don't know if you're single but you seemed really cool, so I hope you find this post....

Never done this before, but that connection was insane - you were with your friends, I with mine. We talked briefly, and then I said goodbye. Should have given you my number. Hope you see this, I'd love to get to know you better.

False Creek Jogger

You were jogging this morning down the path beside the dog park going towards the False Creek seawall. It was raining. You touched the seawall with your foot, turned, gave me a great smile and a "good morning" and ran back up the path. You had on a ball cap and wear trimmed facial hair. I was walking on the seawall wearing a khaki coloured raincoat and shiny red rain boots. You were such a nice surprise and your smile shone in the rain. I hope you had a good run. Hope even more that we cross paths again...

At Bimini's

We danced for a hot second on Friday night at Bim's. You: tall, tattooed arms, black nike hat that you were wearing backwards. I was the girl in the grey skirt, black top, black boots & curled hair. You told me your name but I couldn't hear over the music. You're probably taken...but on the off chance you're not, hit me up? Drinks? :)

Ravishing in red

Picture this: I'm attending an art show and meet this stunning girl with the most amazing laugh. She was wearing a stunning red dress with all the right places accented and high boots like a superhero warrior. Her friends proceed to try and drag her away to a nearby watering hole so she invites me to join them. I, of course, decline because I am a moron. The next morning I'm still kicking myself for not going or at least asking for your number. If you're willing to give an idiot a second chance I'd love to see you again.

Champlain mall double take x2

I saw you with your load of groceries and TP, when you turned and our eyes met,we both smiled as we passed each other, I was very intrigued and turned to look back at you, you had also turned to look at me. We both had the same happy to have gotten caught. I should have done something, but. Ended up wandering aimlessly thinking about you and how I could see you again.
