Elevator Encounter

We started chatting when you joined me on the elevator and you said you had just come from a job interview. I'm thinking about getting into your field so I asked you a bunch of questions about it. You seemed like a genuinely nice person and I thought you were really pretty too. Regret not asking you to continue the conversation. Drop me a line if you'd like to.

Very tall pretty blonde girl on expo skytrain from king george to waterfront

Im 6 foot 4 and its very rare to see a girl thats my height You were a very tall about 6 foot 3 girl, with blonde hair up in a bun, a jean jacket, black jeans, and a backpack, you looked like you just got out of class or something. You got off at Scott Road I was sitting down across from you with my laptop, I have very short hair, a blue jacket, and a button up on. We caught each others glances a few times as I was sort of creeping on you haha. I wanted to go up and talk to you but I figured starting up conversation on a busy train was a bit weird an awkward, I'm regretting it now. You were stunning, contact me, maybe you'd lke to get to know a guy who isn't shorter than you for once? haha

John the Musician + Judas Priest Fan

A man had been following me for several stops .. I reached out to you in the line up for help and you intervened without hesitation. You protected me, kept me safe and rode the bus past your own stop to make sure I made it to my stop safely. You walked away saying if I ever needed help, that I could find you at that same stop around the same time and I've been looking for you ever since ... I've shared our story and have drivers and passengers keeping their eyes open for you too but I seem to be missing you every timE ... I want to share with you how amazing you are and how grateful I am to you for being so willing to help me ... for being such a gentleman. You're a beautiful soul and I would like to see you again ... AND I cannot believe I didn't ask you for your number or give you my card! Woman?! haha I had just taught a meditation class and was a bit shook up from being followed .. I also trusted I would see you again ... Trying every angle to find you. Hoping you read the Georgia Straight! Warmest hugs, ~Michelina

Server at wings lougheed with the MM tat

You served my buddy and I. You had a Marilyn Manson quote on your left arm and a glowing personality. Your shift ended and I should have invited you to sit down when we settled up. But my buddy pointed out your ring. If that ring is just for show and you also wish I hadn't let you just walk away, message me and it won't happen again.

Me, short female, dirtyblonde. You, tall dapper fellow with your JJbean coffee. I was having a heated argument, and stopped you to demand your opinion on the definition of verbal abuse. You cleared some things up, then declared "I have to go to work now!" and bid a hasty retreat. I just wanted to say thanks, and I'll buy your next coffee if you see this!

Beauty in black

You were waiting for the 17 bus at Broadway and Cambie around noon. You were wearing faded black jeans and black North Face jacket. You got up at one point to talk on your phone to someone about the hail (I wasn't listening, I promise). I was the guy with his gym bag and groceries. When you got off the bus at 12th and Oak, I wished I had worked up the nerve to say hello. Can we meet up some time so I can say hi and buy you a coffee or a whole meal of food?

#99 Monday evening

We got on the bus at the same stop. Traded smiling glances back and forth until MacDonald, where we both exited. You had headphones in. I should have said hello. I was wearing a black jacket, glasses, and have dark wavy hair. After getting off the bus, I got a call from a friend. I was standing across the street from the apartment building you walked into and looked up to see you (?) painting a red wall (?) Tell me the stop where we boarded the bus, and the name of the coffee shop attached to your building, so I know it's you! Maybe we can ride the bus again, but sitting together this time?!

the narrow Jew

So you read my Hebrew tattoo on my arm and asked me what it meant. I was too nervous to give you my number or talk to you and I regret it. You were very tall and wore glasses. Since we are the only Jews in Vancouver we should at least go for a drink.

The boy in line at Mac Demarco

I was holding my super huge, newly discovered Mac Demarco painting while in the line up for his Vogue show. We were in line together after I had met up with someone who bumped me up closer to the front that you happened to be with. I don't remember the interaction we had word for word, but you were super charming and inquisitive, and the fluorescent paint on your hands was quite the cool sight. I really can't stop thinking about how cool you are.

Baby shower gifts at the Bay

We were both picking out baby shower presents and ended up with almost identical "onesies". I joked that we better not be getting presents for the same baby. I noticed what a great smile you had and how attracted to you I felt. .....wish I had gotten your number. Coffee? If you , by some miracle, read this and respond, mention the character on the front of the onesies so that I know its you :)

Tower Encounter

I was strolling your way at Tower Beach and paused to comment on the Sun Kil Moon song coming from your iPhone. You smiled confidently and asked me to smoke a joint with you. I had to dash up the stairs and back into the real world, but would love to return to the sand and have a sunset smoke with you one of these days. Get in touch if you see this.

Hey Ms A!

You asked me to look you up so I thought I would give you a shout out. Hey Ms A! Our brief encounter this afternoon has piqued my curiosity. I would really enjoy having a longer conversation with you so that I could loose myself in your big beautiful green (possibly hazel?) eyes. Coffee? Or perhaps a drink? - The man in the black shirt & boots
