Cute cat lover on skytrain

You had an accent and a feather tattoo on your wrist, talking to your friend about how much you love cats - you captivated me.

Tongue-tied on the Skytrain

We both got on at Granville. You got off at commercial, I had on shorts, a grey sweatshirt and a toque. You had short dark hair. We made eye contact and smiled at each other but I couldn't think of anything to say. If you see this lets get a drink, I'm sure I can think of something worthwhile to say.

Gilmore Guy on the Millennium Line

Noticed you first on the skytrain platform at Commercial/ Broadway. Then when getting into the skytrain you ended up sitting facing me on the opposite side. You were wearing a red hoody, a cap, (jeans?) with a backpack. I was in a bright salmon coloured sweater, black capri pants and had a tan purse. I avoided making eye contact because I thought you were super attractive and I'd be too obvious. Not sure you're the type to ever read one of these posts but in the off chance you do we should grab coffee sometime.

You noticed my blue blue eyes

Locked eyes on the skytrain to Granville station, held the door for you and we talked but I never asked your. AMe or for more of your time... can't get you out of my head nor stop kicking myself for just walking away...

Gorgeous brunette on the Skytrain at Broadway Station

We both jumped on the skytrain at Broadway and I couldn't help but sneak a couple of cheeky glances. You, gorgeous, long dark hair, yoga pants and boots were with your friend (who was wearing woollen gloves even though it was warm out). Me, not quite as gorgeous, shaved head, nose ring and jeans jacket with the sleeves rolled up. We exchanged a couple of smiles and I'm kicking myself I didnt give you my number before you jumped off at Yaletown. Drink sometime?

Weird Skytrain Moment

We shared a weird moment as you were getting off the train. You made eye contact, smiled, and - to my absolute bewilderment - waved hello. I've been scratching my head ever since, wondering if that was a romantic attraction thing, or simple a case of mistaken identity. You: in black, bent the laws of physics with the huge violin-like instrument on your back (it's actually bigger than you are). Me: asian, thick framed glasses, dumbfounded jerk who was (kind of) in the way of the train doors.

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.

Focus Group & Skytrain

After the focus group we got on the Skytrain and chatted for 2 stops. The Edmonds station came too soon! I wanted to give you my phone number, but was too slow. I was delighted by our conversation; would be nice to meet again!

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. You are goregous, would you like to have a drink with me :)

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?
