Fat Burger downtown

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?

Taken Aback

99 bus heading west. I got on at Fraser. You got off at Clark. I was the man with round glasses, bundled in my coat and toque. You were the beautiful woman with the philtrum piercing giving me intense eye contact. I regret not saying anything to you. I'd love to meet some time.

Rad guy on the 3

No 3 bus going up Main. I got slapped on the ass by a random guy and you spoke up. You might've been tipsy from your work party, but your earnestness got me good. Let's be friends?

Hey Boy

Uncanny Ryan Gosling look alike on the 20 bus downtown today. There was some eye contact as you got on and again as I got off downtown. I wanted to blurt out something witty but thought better of it so as to refrain from tripping over my mouth. If you see this and we are semi on the same page, get at me.

Park Ranger on the Seawall

You were blocking off the sea wall and me and my friend were riding by on bikes. We stopped at third beach to look at the view and you came over to ask us about our detour through the park. We chatted for a while and you seemed really interesting and super friendly. My friend said something funny about you busting blowjobs in East Van... I was the other girl! I'd love to get a drink sometime if you remember me :)

A Triangle-tattooed staff at Cactus Club Cafe

Five of my good-dorky friends and I had dinner last night - it was a busy Sunday night. You were my server. You touched lightly on my arms. Ever since I was little I hated touching. However, I didn't hate it. I was just bit anxious. And I did/said dumb things the whole time. All I wanted to tell you is how beautiful you are [Just letting you know you are like a 20 out of 10].

Great Smile on the Snowy Number 9

Normally I hop on the 99, but I didn't want to wait in the cold so I got on the 9 and I'm glad I did 'cause your smile brightened my day. I was bundled up in about 13 different layers and you were dressed real sharp with shiny black shoes that didn't look like they'd hold up too well in the snow. We kept exchanging looks, even after we got off the bus... I should have stopped and said hi. So, hi. Drink sometime?

Hastings Tacofino

You were the blonde who seemed to be on a business lunch. I hope. I sat facing you at the next table. We shared a couple of smiles. If you'd rather have a meal with someone who pays more attention to you than his phone, I'm available.

To the guy with the snowboard outside Noodlebox...

We caught each other's eyes as I walked past you at the bus stop on Main and Broadway. You were holding your snowboard and I was heading into the Noodlebox. I sat by the window as I waited and you turned and smiled at me, I don't know why I didn't take the chance, run out and give you my number while we were both waiting. The #3 bus came and you turned, smiled and waved. I grabbed my pen and a piece of paper to quickly write my number but the bus just pulled away as I got outside. If by chance you are reading this, would you be interested in coffee sometime?

We were sitting in front of each other, your beauty caught my attention and then you caught me staring at you You smiled at me, but I dunno if it was just for being polite The curious fact is that you have an old cell phone as mine lol Btw, you made a comment about the noise that the bus made I want to know you :)

Crazy taxi and Scintillating N9 Ride

Hey! Keira! Thanks for making my bus ride a little more wonderful. Couldn't stop looking into your eyes, and laughing at your off kilter sense of the world! I wish there were more great convos like that around; the world would be a better place. See ya around! Ps. Do you kiss your mother with a mouth like that?! Zac

To the seabus cutie who caught my eye

Now, believe me when I say I never do this. But after today, I absolutely had to. I'm kicking myself for not saying anything to you earlier so I guess this is my best bet... I was getting the vibe that the attraction was mutual but I can't be too sure, so, here I am. walked past you and sat down on the seats along the back window, nervously shuffling through my backpack trying to make myself look busy. This is a complete long shot, but if you're out there and you read this... Well, I guess you know what to do.

Anchored at 29Th Avenue Station.

I was pleasantly surprised this morning when I was waiting on the platform of the Skytrain at the station 29th to go to work when I saw you arrive, the time was frozen when we locked eyes a few seconds, thats around 8:15 am and I could only pay attention to your movements, you took a number from "The Georgia Straight", then while you reading it I could see that you wear a red bracelet with an anchor and other with this: TAAB. You were very rushed and that's why I did not approach, however I know you read this newspaper and it will be my big opportunity to find you again. I can't get you off of my mind, and Im very intrigued to meet you. I count on this publication to make an appointment I only ask you to wait for January, when I come back from Mexico and it will be just to look for you.

Raincoat on Hastings bus, 6:30ish pm.

You: 20-something, dirty blonde hair, Blundstones (obvs), nifty raincoat. Me: Soaking wet and bundled up in a black wool jacket, scarf and ball cap, envious of your rain-appropriate attire. Wish I had thought of something more clever to say than, "Where did you get your raincoat?" but I was genuinely curious. We exchanged smiles as you got off the bus. I doubt you'll see this but if you do, reply with the answer you gave me?

#7 Bus heading Downtown from Dunbar

You got on the bus on Dunbar and about 18th, you had a big bag with you, maybe it was a massage table. We made eye contact a few times and shared a few smiles. I got off the busat Granville and Davie and as the bus drove off we shared another big smile. I'm 6'4, brown hair, and was wearing a grey and blue zip up hoodie. You were probably around 6'1 or so, had auburn hair and freckles. You gave off a really great vibe and it would be nice to connect with you.

Smitten on Bus #16

We rode the #16 bus westbound this morning together, from Strathcona until I left at City Centre. You are tall, wavy dark hair with a great beard and even greater blue eyes. Your jacket looked like something from a Team Canada, with a maple leaf crest and your number embroidered on the sleeve. You carried a messenger bag, red, I think. I hope you felt me smiling, and heard me whisper 'bye'. I regret not saying 'hi'.

Tall, handsome guy wearing a green toque

I was reading my book and you stood in front of me on the bus, catching my attention. You sat down and started reading "Gas Pipe". Would you like to go for coffee to discuss fine literature sometime?

You paid for my banana

You were in front of me in line at the small Kitsilano grocery store and asked if I had the time, then if I'd like to go in front of you since I was only buying a banana. I said it was alright, but when you went to ring in your groceries you insisted you buy my banana for me. We walked home together in the rain under my umbrella and had a really great conversation until you got to your bus stop, where I asked for your number. You gave it to me! ... I lost it... In a world where 99 percent of people meet by swiping right, it was nice to meet an authentic person like yourself. Hope we meet again somehow.

Familiar-looking fellow on #14 Hastings bus at City Centre

I thought you may have given me a hesitant smile when I boarded the bus at Georgia. Perhaps I was staring? You look so familiar to me. . . I've seen you around downtown before - at the opera I believe - and I had the same feeling then. Do we know each other from some years ago? You: attractive fellow (late 40s?), tallish, short, dark hair, wearing dark jacket, trousers, boots and a satchel. Alighted at about Seymour I think. Me: 5'8", bobbed light brown hair and blue eyes. I was wearing a hooded black a-line rain jacket, jeans and boots. Your looking so familiar is driving my memory a bit mad! Help me solve the mystery by getting in touch?

Wish I Said Something

I hopped on the 9 bus (at Cambie) through the back door and we noticed each other immediately. You had strawberry blonde hair, overalls, and sweater/shawl type of thing. I was in black with a leather. We were exchanging glances and smiles at each other the whole ride, but for some reason I didn't say anything and I've been kicking myself for it ever since we both exited at Commercial/Broadway. Here's hoping you see this and I can correct that mistake. Perhaps over a drink?

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!
