Dark hair, brown eyes, in Whole Foods

I saw you in Whole Foods today. You were all in black. You have dark brown hair tied in semi-bun. I was at the salad bar and you walked past a couple times. We locked eyes once or twice. I was in a blazer and a gray hat and heels. You bought your dinner and you were eating it by the window when I was checking out. I literally walked towards you, and then walked away and then turned back. I had no idea what to say, I wanted to talk to you, but didn't know what to say. I was so attracted to your energy in the very small interactions we had. I went to my car and hummed and hawed but at that point I was late for a rehearsal and left. But I am kicking myself. Seriously. If you remember who I am and would like to get to know me, let me know :)

Unforgettable walk on the beach

You, green eyed, brown haired guy at the burrard @ west Georgia bus stop. Me: dark haired blue eyed. We were waiting for the same bus. You asked me if you knew me. We chatted for a bit while on the bus where you told me you were going to travel to Japan and then you invited me for a walk along the sea wall. We shared an amazing kiss and you held my hand as you walked me home. There are a number of reasons why I'm kicking myself about this encounter, but the biggest reason was not asking you for your number.

The winker

I was shopping at Pacific centre a few weeks ago and you were working in one of the stores I walked into. I walked in and you greeted me, I could almost feel your eyes following me around the store, when I turned around you looked like you were going to say something to me, and you kept winking at me, don't know if you were flirting with me or not. You: shoulder length blonde hair, 5'10 - 5'11, medium build. Me: asian, short black hair, 5'5. If you remember me, get in touch.

Hastings Donald's Cereal Aisle July 2012

Your name is Missy and you worked at Red Wagon. I gave you my number so nervous in the cereal aisle at Donald's. You wrote back: you were in a relationship but I had made your day. I moved to the desert and thought about you more than now and again. If you are still in that relationship, I wish you nothing but the best. If not, can we grab that coffee three years later?

Bearded Brown Haired Band Boy At The Biltmore

You were in a red and black flannel with a beard and your hair pulled back standing in the corner and loading gear out of the Biltmore Saturday night. I was a brown long haired girl dressed in black dancing with some friends on the outskirts of the crowd. Our eyes meet a few times and I smiled but I got shy then you were gone. Wish you would have come and said hi. Want another chance?

Cute Kiss radio street team member

You are a street team member for a radio station. Brown hair, energetic, often wearing a hat. You've caught my eye in the past and then imagine my surprise when I find out you're actually a friends brother. I've been unbelievably shy and have refrained from really talking to you even though I want to. You have a really infectious energy and smile, and you seem very kind. (You're cute too). So at least know you make a super positive impression, even if I'm way too shy to strike up the first conversation.

Gardening Guy!

Saturday afternoon, I was the brunette buying the goodies for my terrarium. You mentioned a baby shower and pulled out the "looking for love in Alderaan places" line- which I informed you was a t-shirt. I saw you didn't charge me for my orchid feed when I got home. Thank you! You look fairly young, but hard to tell if you're age appropriate or not. If you're 27 plus and interested, come find me! I'll show you my super cool terrarium.

You left me punch drunk....

Or was it the movie we saw? 百円恋…but I suspect you are no dollar store girl. In any case, how lucky I was you sat next to me, Denise. What fun to experience the film with such an expressive person. You may well be shy, but your sensitivity is palpable. I know we'll cross paths again. And like Itsuko, I'm up for the challenge.

Mindful Day

You greeted me at gathering to hear a speaker from Florida. I wanted to say thank you for your strength and courage in speaking your thoughts and sharing your experience. Also for welcoming a stranger to this event, I definitely stood out as a newbie to this event. You left early before I could thank you in person. You were like a bright flash that disappeared too quickly leaving me to wonder who you are. I can only hope that you would somehow find this posting so we can connect.

contemplations on the universe on the 44

You caught my eye as soon I hopped on, but i'm shy so I just stuck to my Amy Winehouse album. When I finally got to take a seat it was by you.. and I couldn't help but notice what you were doing on your phone. At first I thought it was an email but then I realized the prose was coming for you. It was oddly beautiful, and I just wanted to let you know your writing was a silver lining in my otherwise unremarkable yet trying day.. thanks, even if you don't get this. I was the girl with the huge brown bag lost in my thoughts and music.

Ketchup Monster

I called in sick and decided I needed some comfort food. Naturally I went to Lucy's Eastside Diner and ordered up a classic eggs Benny. You gave me hot water and a lemon slice while I waited. Clearly you're kind and goddamn you're beautiful. How about coffee sometime when I am feeling a little better?

Insurance agent, Port Moody

You sit in the third cubicle from the front of the office. You're a stunning brunette. I've been in twice- once a month ago, and once just yesterday. Both times, we can't keep our eyes or our smiles off of each other. Why not progress to not keeping our hands and lips off each other? Because of my job, I couldn't make a move at your workplace.

Babe at Main and 4th afterhours

Found myself at a weird af(terhours) last friday night. My (gay) friend and I were chatting you up for a bit toward the end. I can't say I remember much of what I said to you but he's convinced me I made a mistake not exchanging numbers and that I should take the chance and reach out. I know I liked your face and style. Black hair, black leather and jeans, were you feeling me too?

Leone L2 Cafe babe having a lunch date with the wrong guy

I was waiting for my lunch around 2:30. The store and cafe was empty except for you and your lunch date and of course me. We checked each other out and smiled at each other a number of times. I didn't want to assume nor break the bro-code. Would love to meet you.

Handsome guy on the 7

Me: Brown hair, freckles & hazel eyes, wearing a khaki green dress, jean jacket and blundstones. Got on the bus at 4th and Macdonald and stood by the doors. You: tall, brown hair & eyes, navy blue jacket, sitting up the steps by the doors. Glanced up to see you looking at me and when I looked back we made eye contact again. You were so handsome, but I was to shy to say hi. You got off at 4th & Arbutus, but maybe I'll see you again?

Canada Line Angel

Monday September 28, 2015 - You were already on the Canada Line train when I boarded at City Centre at 6:30 p.m., and you disembarked at Broadway. You were about 5'7", long brown hair, wearing a blue and white striped shirt, with a tattoo of a lizard on your left foot. I was the dude in the suit standing next to you. I have many great personal qualities, but bravery isn't one of them. You're amazingly beautiful and you have great style. If you see this, show it to the boyfriend you undoubtedly have and advise him never to take you for granted.

Bashful at the bus stop

I was the girl in the green dress black tights drinking the booster juice, you were the guy wearing flip flops. I thought you were cute but I was freezing and wanted to stand in the sun. Got on the 22 at Cornwall and cypress. Didn't have the guts to chat on the bus but saw you scrolling through a dating app. You won't find me on there. But if you're interested, you can here.

Cheaters are everywhere

I only have open relationships. I find its better to have a honest relationship rather one where...
