To the handsome fellow working at the Starbucks

I saw you while getting a morning coffee at Starbucks on Jervis and Robson. You had headphones in and were diligently working away on your laptop. I think you were wearing a grey shirt and jeans. I was sitting there in a navy striped shirt and blue jeans trying not to stare at you like an idiot. Want to share a coffee (or a proper drink) with me?

You came into the bookstore I worked at around this time last year. It was a rainy day and it was deadly slow. We chatted for a long time and you said you'd visit again, but months passed and no Lydia! Now I'm not working there; if you see this and remember me, let's resume our chat about work & heavy metal...

You came to talk to me then ran away

I was walking down Burrard yesterday at 1 pm and you walked passed me with your friend. You then ran up to me and started to talk to me but then got flustered and ran away. I didn't even get a chance to say anything and would be interested in what you had to say!

We were waiting to ride the beast! We talked while waiting and we sat together! Your friend was watching your daughter and my daughter was to scared to ride! You needed slippers for your flip flops! I was with my work having BBQ!! You said you were single and I was an idiot for not picking up on this! Thought you were very cute, and now hope you see this! Been thinking about you ever since! Dan

Rambling Pink Hair on the Night Bus

We ended up at the same bus stop after the gig. Didn't think much of it at first. Then you started talking. To your friend, to yourself, to the bus. We drunkenly bantered about being socially awkward, cringe moments, the quality of your phone book's content. I'd like to do more of that. You had pink hair and a fantastic laugh, I had my old leather jacket on. Leverage that acerbic wit and let me know how my hair was.

Tu parle la langue de l'amour

Stunning paramedic Catherine, you attended a call for service with me at Third Beach in Stanley Park this morning. You're from the Eastern Townships of Quebec. Although I was talking mainly to your partner, I have eyes seulement pour vous. I bade you a fond farewell to `play safe' replied `never!'. Wanna be unsafe together, then?

It seemed you and your girlfriend were going to yoga. You both crossed Clark and East Broadway on the north side then down Clark past me at the 22 bus stop and we exchanged some pleasantries and was wondering if you would like to go for a coffee?

You work at a certain fast food joint and I've only seen you there late at night. Sometimes after the bar sometimes not. We've talked many times. On the bus once or twice too. Quite sure your name starts with the letter A. I've been waiting for the next time I run into you but it never happens. Let me know who I am

You & I

To the babe at the Local Natives concert. I noticed you right away, you stood out in the crowd with your dark hair, I really loved your tshirt. I was the brunette dancing with my group of friends. I may not have known all the lyrics but I sure wish I could have danced with you. When did our love grow cold?

we dropped something at the same time

I was carrying back home a plant I just bought, and dropped in the middle of the street. You were delivering mail, and dropped a bunch of papers nearby at the same time. We exchanged a few words. I wish I invited you for coffee and chatted a bit more but you were on duty. Meet again during free time?

Commercial/Grandview Sunny Friday bike crossing double take

I was on my bike at the junction waiting for the lights; when you walked over the crossing wheeling yours...we both looked, smiled and caught each others eye looking back a good few times. I said hi and you stopped and took your headphones out to turn back at me just as the lights changed...I didn't mean to be rude but I was in the middle of the road by the time i figured i should've stopped to chat. I was kicking myself the rest of the way home. If you see this fancy going for a drink?

Pretty Smile Pretty Fitness Girl at Body Energy Club

Saying "hi" on Commercial drive

I saw you at the little park on Commercial beside the Sweet Cherub place. You said hi. I also said hi. I dont know if we are acquainted or if we were two strangers saying hi. I sometimes forget people I meet. Sorry if I sped off, I was late! Anyway, if you want to talk more then get in touch!

Dazzling smile on the 135

I was on my way home from work, and stood up to give my seat to someone else. I accidentally kicked your foot, and turned around, and saw the most beautiful smile ever! You: Asian girl with white jacket, blue jeans, a backpack, and adorable dimples. Me: the awkward tall guy who booted your foot.

Homeless but sexy

You were sitting on the sidewalk in front of London Drugs. We chatted and I gave you the change in my pocket. But when I handed it to you I had a visceral reaction - immediate attraction. I'll chat with you again. You're probably not gay, and I'm attached but I love your smile. Maybe I should be telling Dan Savage this story.

Quick glances at Revolver

I had just picked up my coffee from the counter at Revolver when you walked in with your friend (I think?). You're tall, have dark hair, dark rimmed glasses and wearing an unbuttoned shirt over a t-shirt. We instantly made eye contact and there was something really easy about it. I was in a striped dress and walked past you and your friend when leaving. I immediately turned around when out on the sidewalk in front of the coffee shop, and you were standing in the doorstep just smiling calmly. I'm an idiot and didn't start a conversation since I was with some friends. Geez, maybe I'll get another shot here?! *pun intended*

False Creek Angel on a Bycycle

It was a beautiful afternoon. You locking up your bike to possibly go for a drink, brunette, beautiful smile. Me walking by with a friend of mine, Filipino. Our gaze only lasted for a few moments but in those few seconds as weird as it sounds, I actually had a physical response to you. I don't know who you were with, if you have a boyfriend but I haven't stopped thinking about you and that look since it happened. I though I would take a chance if you felt something as I did and would love to see if we could be something amazing together.

I was running, you were biking with a guitar

Hillcrest rec centre crossing on to Ontario bike path. We shared a smile and continued on. You were biking with a guitar on your back and I was running. I tried to keep up, but I'm not a very good runner ;) You turned back a few times and smiled. I should have taken out my ear phones before you turned off somewhere before 16th. Try again sometime?

Packing some meat

I was in line to order smoked pork when you entered to buy meat (sausage to be exact :P) for a BBQ you said you were having that same day. I liked your smile and thought you were really cute. I was the girl standing behind you in the red dress. Hope you see this and we can get together for some other meats!

Missing Barista Boi

Where did you go, Andie?! Saying hi to you and your big laugh was the highlight of my morning and I'm surprised that you left without saying goodbye. Word is you have quite the fan club but I think you liked our morning chats too. Until you're back we're stuck getting sub-par coffee from your grumpy hetero coworkers... I'll keep checking the elevators just in case, but maybe we can have our own coffee one morning.

Construction Guy @ Waterfront

I see you a couple of times a week down at Waterfront. You: tall dark and handsome in construction clothes with hair in a pony tail. Problem is your usually with a girl with glasses and a hat. We've exchanged glances before and smiles. Me: long brown hair and in my office attire. Sure would love to talk to you and more. Take a chance :)
