Smiling skytrain Italian

We got on the expo line at Main and Science World. I was carrying a very heavy box and you graciously let me sit down. You then sat down opposite me, next to an elderly Albanian gentlemen, who shared some of his life with you. All the way through you laughed, asking polite questions. You mentioned that you are of Italian background, but were born in Canada. He left, and then you rode the train all the way to Surrey. You would not stop smiling, even with the rain and the delays. It was as if you had discovered a hidden secret. I dearly wanted to ask you what had made you so happy - I had never seen someone look so lively on public transit. Towards the end, you pulled a dog-eared copy of Spinoza's Ethics out of your beautiful old leather satchel, and I was head over heels. I desperately tried to think of something to say, but was too shy. We smiled at each other as I left the train. If you weren't smiling about a partner, perhaps you could tell me what you were smiling about some time?

Beautiful girl on the Skytrain

I asked you if that was the 106 bus that stopped at the stop I was waiting at, even though I knew it was, and I just thought you were so beautiful. We got on the skytrain together and felt so good when I noticed you smile at me. I wanted that dude sitting next to you to get off so I could sit next to you, but he never did and I never worked up the courage to talk to you :( You smiled and waved as I got off the train, and I wanted to go back into the train to ask you for your phone number but I never did, and I'm kicking myself for not doing that. Wherever you are, Pretty skytrain girl, you definitely made my day.

Starbucks / City Hall Skytrain "Meet Cute" encounter

I was leaving the City Hall Skytrain station. You were walking in and I turned around and smiled and waved, thinking I knew you. I walked across the street into the Starbucks at Cambie and Broadway…you followed me and came and sat across from me in the Starbucks. YOU: Have a wonderful smile, work for an electrical company (Mott Electric), have dark hair and great style. ME: Short with brown hair and work for a Project Management company – we figured out our companies have worked together quite a bit. You said my smile made your day and took my number to schedule a real coffee date. I haven’t heard from you and am worried that you wrote down my number wrong OR think I gave you a fake number (not the case) . A “meet cute” is rare and I want to take you up on that coffee!

Skytrain to Waterfront Station

You - tall, cute, well dressed, glasses, brown boots. Me - blonde hair, bangs, green glasses, bundled up. We both got on at Main Street Skytrain Station and shared a few glances back and forth until I got off at Burrard. I turned back and smiled at you before I left... hopefully, I'll bump into you again on our morning commute :)

Beautiful Woman with a nose ring on Skytrain (Canada Line) to Downtown

Taking the skytrain was never the favourite part of my daily commute to work - until - a week ago. Last Tuesday I saw you in an overly crowded train. I remember I simply couldn't stop looking at you the moment I laid eyes on you. I think you got on the train at the Olympic Village Station. We caught eyes for a moment and continued to exchange eye contacts. At one point you looked down and had your eyes closed for a brief moment and looked at me after your opened your eyes. I have been hoping to run into you again ever since. You were a stunning woman with a nose ring (left), I was the guy with glasses wearing a black peacoat and I got off at the Yaletown station. I wish I hadn't gotten off the train and had stayed behind to talk to you. I may very well never see you again, that's regret.

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.

Stylish girl got off at Granville skytrain

It was yesterday morning around 9am. (Tuesday) You walked on and stood beside me kind of brushing against me, somewhere in Vancouver unsure which stop. Me: (dark wavy hair girl sitting with dark floral pattern jumpsuit and grey leggings) You: Cute girl with long lucious brunette hair, white and blue collar shirt, beige pants & cool sneakers. I felt you brush against me and may have been sending signals. I had chapped lips, it was my first day back to reality, in any other setting I would've walked asked you out for a drink on the spot.

Burrard Station Tues 10.30pm - A cheeky wave

It started at Burrard station, me heading home from meeting friends - green cap backwards and nose pierced. You, good looking, long dark hair, denim jacket and mischievous look. We both kind of lingered near each other. Sat opposite each other on the skytrain and I left the seat open next to me when we transferred at Commercial. You didn't take it but I'm hoping you wanted to. I got off at Sperling/Burnaby Lake and we made eye contact. You waved with a cheeky smile as the train pulled away and I swore. On the off chance that you read this, coffee?

You reading, me writing - on the skytrain

You were readingoing a book and I was journaling, on the Expo/Millennium line skytrain to downtown. We exchanged a smile, you asked me about my writing and I asked about yours (and about your book). Our conversation was cut short when you had to get off at Stadium-Chinatown station. I'd love to read one of your stories sometime, or just have a coffee chat! To verify, what book were you reading?

Brunette, cute bum, on way up escalator Burrard skytrain

I had trouble tapping out at the gate below, and then I caught up to you on the escalator at Burrard skytrain station on the way up I passed you and said hey how's it going, and you replied great and we talked a little bit. you were on your way to meet a friend's for drinks and I was on my way to a tech Meetup. we definitely need to try to get together and hang out. you thought I was friendly and I thought you were cute but for some reason we went our separate ways without exchanging contact information I'd love to see you again.

skytrain commercial to burrard

I saw you as I was getting on at commercial and we ended up in the same car. I was sitting facing the window and you sat right beside me - facing me. I felt the energy and was hoping you'd say something - but I had my head phones in so I understand that you didn't. You were cute - and I was the blonde in the black blazer - let's talk?

I caught you looking three times

I got on at Cambie street skytrain, dark haired and in all white, poorly balancing my book and hanging on. I tripped twice and laughed. I felt you (tall, brunette, short beard, walked with a limp) looking at me but thought you were out of my league so I quickly looked away each time we caught eyes. It was only a block we got off at Vancouver City Central that realised it probably wasn't accidental - there was no reason for you to be riding the escalator backwards as I walked the stairs. What's your story, sir?

Oakridge Mall - BC Cancer Donation Collector

This is a long shot; but today around 5 pm I walked out of the Skytrain station at Oakridge mall and was stopped by your co-working for a donation. I was feeling generous so decided to contribute. I had a smoke with your coworker while you sat on the bench hitting your vaporizer. You handed me a pen as a gift for donating. I was way too nervous to ask you out - hoping you read this. If you do - coffee? tea? drink?
