At the bus stop on Nanaimo and Broadway, I asked is it was alright if I had smoke....

We were waiting for the number 7 dunbar around 12:15pm. This was at Nanaimo and Broadway. I asked you if it was alright I had a smoke....and I said it is weed. You said it was alright and I offered you a toke. You accepted had a couple puffs and then the bus came. We chatted on the bus, you said you work at Moxies and only worked an hour. I said I am a sous chef. We exchanged names. You said you had some beers with co workers and I said I am dying for a beer after a bit of a rough day at work. Anyways you got off at your stop, you have such a sweet smile and would love to smoke the rest of that joint sometime! Hope you read this.....

Rock Enthusiast on the Bus

I SAW YOU...on the bus on February 16th heading home from work. You caught my attention when you started talking to the person next to you about cooling rates and phaneritic crystals. I feel the need to learn more. Will you help me? I want to understand the relationship between location, cooling rates and crystal sizes. You seemed willing to talk then, will you reply to me now? What about composition? Are all igneous rocks made out of the same material? Maybe you remember me. I moved closer to you on the bus to try to learn more, but was too intimidated to talk to you in person. I heard you use the words magma and lava. Aren't these the same? I noticed you talking about color index, but couldn't figure out what you meant. Who is this Bowen guy you referred too? What did he discover about igneous rocks? Are all igneous rocks found in the same formations? I've heard that Hawaii is volcanic and here in Vancouver rocks are plutonic. What's the difference? What features might I see here that are different in Hawaii? You mentioned hiking on Mt. Baker. Isn't that a volcano? Is it dangerous? Tell me something about volcano types. This seems like so much information, I would love to hear how it all fits together. I'm hoping you write back to me, and if things go really well, maybe we can meet in person so you can teach me more. Hoping for a response and eager to learn, Iggy

Hottie at Our community bikes on Main.

Beautiful blonde on the 25

We locked eyes more than a few times on the 25 this evening (Valentines Day) after you got on around Fraser or Main. You had beautiful blonde hair, and might have been wearing a green sweater or jacket... I digress. I was a tall brown haired guy in a camel coat and exercise clothing. You turned around and stared at me out the window as the bus pulled away after I got off - coffee sometime? :)

99 BLine - YOU: blackhatted, redhead, charming eavesdropper

Boarding the 99BLine at Commercial/Broadway this morning just after 11am, my friend and I were the last to scramble on because I was loading my bike. You were sitting in the articulated-hips section of the bus, and as we walked past you, I was laughing and said something to my friend about how I wasn't *that* hungover. You said something complimentary and I told you how much nicer you are than my friend, and then I commended you for such a lovely black and grey hat. Sadly you got off well before the end of the line -- clearly I was hungover enough that my reaction time was tooooo slooooow to ask you for your number. Want to go somewhere and eavesdrop together? I like your chutzpah. [Me: black jacket + toque, grey tights, clunky snowboots, hangover glasses]

You Dropped your phone.

Hey. You slipped in the snow at the crosswalk. I noticed your cell and ran it back to you as you were getting onto the bus. I wanted to introduce myself but I didn't really have the time to while the bus was leaving, sorry about that.

Wheelchair on a snowy night bus.

When we finally arrived at the door, he asked if I remembered your name. I did. We had both been dancing, you at Calabash, me at Astoria. You and two transit staff hefted the wheelchair to the roadway while I helped him navigate the snow and slush. You were then reluctant to get back on the bus, showing genuine concern for two strangers. Not something that happens every day in Vancouver.  We had a bit of an adventure getting Harold and his electric wheelchair safely home through the snowy streets. I'd love to tell you about it. Coffee?

I was standing at the bus stop at Granville & Georgia when I looked back... and saw your gorgeous eyes staring into mine quite intensely, and holding my gaze, which was full of fire I'm sure as I was having quite the day :) You did so as you were taking a sip of your to-go coffee, and you had a london drugs shopping bag as well as being dressed impeccably and very beautiful! Coffee?

Grouse Mt Gondola

Hi "just a person", aka not a ski instructor ;) Something inside is telling me you aren't just your average run of the mill person. There's something about you that intrigues me. I couldn't help but look through your bus window, as I walked by, wondering who you are. You looked at me too. Then we both did that thing and turned around and looked at each other again. You have a cute little gap between your front teeth and nice blue eyes and I think you had a kiwi accent. I hope you see this ad and respond. I'd like to meet up and learn more about you.

Braiding on the #3

I was the woman groggily re-braiding my hair on the #3 bus just before 8am Friday morning. You were the guy sitting across from me making a pretty good show of not looking at me until you surprised me when you went to leave. Thanks for the nice words. I wish I had been awake enough to return them properly. Say hi earlier next time. :)

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].
