Marcus @ Birthrave

We danced all night at the birthrave bush party on the river. Your friends and mine joined forces to throwdown beats and cook up a delicious hog. You were gone from my tent in the morning but I can't stop thinking about your fancy feet

8:45pm 502 bus heading Langley way.

You were wearing a big cozy looking, blue sweater, you have your bridge pierced and you were sitting in the far back corner of the 502 headed towards Langley around 8:45-9pm. I was the girl wearing all black and grey drawing in front of you. You were getting off the bus when we made eye contact and then you gave me a silly face as you walked away. I thought you were cute and it would be cool to actually meet, if you ever find this that is. I really should have said hello!

Babe on a bike

We were talking on Hastings and you were frustrated. I just wanted to smooch away your mood. You rode off and I got on the bus. I felt like getting off and chasing you down but you were too far away. Literally and figuratively. I hope we can ride together soon.

JJ Bean Suterbrook Village

Here goes nothing ... to the gentleman who said hello and asked me how my day was. Blonde, red converse and black blazer. You -tall and handsome with a gorgeous smile. You asked how my day was before the crash of some plates. You ordered your coffee to go but you stayed. Wish I had the courage to offer you my business card. Perhaps we could share a coffee in the future..... one in a million you will see this :)

Handsome guy with the sick dreads

Bus Stop at Granville & Davie

I was on the #10 bus at the second door, we made eye contact, I looked away and then we made eye contact again and locked eyes and stared and smiled at each toher for a solid 30 seconds. I was wearing all black with beige suede boots and a black backpack. You were in shorts and a hoodie and had a basbell cap on. Would love to meet you.

Where: Granvile & Davie Bus Stop


We live in the same neighbourhood - close enough to be sharing the same ride frequently. I used to be eager to see you - I wanted to get to know you, maybe go out on a date together. I would smile; try to engage your attention to politely express my interest in you. I read body language and try to be sensitive - you gave me an angry “back the fuck off” look unexpectedly one day, if I’ve ever seen one; it was pretty clear that you were not interested. So, after that, I just stopped. I don’t force anyone to like me; it’s not my way. Whenever I bump into you on the bus or on the street now, I’m not thinking “hey, it’s that sandy-blonde girl I like”, rather “oh, it’s you” – those feelings from before hit an icy wall and fall flat, despite the fact that I know you’re trying to get my attention. I confess, I’ve been avoiding your gaze, because your smiling at me is driving me mad. You’d need to do something pretty amazing to convince me now.

Hair like a Lion - 17 Oak

You - stunning blue eyes and a gorgeous mane of curly brown hair. Me - shaved head and blue eyes. We exchanged glances and then an old lady got on the bus and commented how beautiful your hair was (I agree). You said it was like a lion; that made me smile and was going to say hi but had to get off at my stop. Would love to grab a drink or coffee sometime and get to know you!

Gorgeous lady on the late night 135 SFU

You first caught my eye when I walked past you waiting for the 135 on Hastings and Granville @ 1AM. We than met again on the 135. You sat in the middle of the bus, across from me. We exchanged glances the whole ride. I was on my way home from work and was really tired. I really wish I would of introduced myself and told you how beautiful I thought you were. I was the guy with the hole in my jeans on the right knee. Lets grab a coffee some day. I would really like to get to you know.

44 Express to Wreck

We were waiting for the bus at Vine, and you started by asking me whether the 84 or 4 was faster to UBC. After you enlightened me with the Transit app (which remains installed), the 44 Express magically showed up to solve our dilemma. On campus we were walking in the same direction, you in front, and you turned with a smile and asked if I was following you. We chatted on the way to the beach, and once there, you told me to enjoy my day before I could come up with something witty yet non-creepy to say. Since that didn't happen, here I am... Meet me for a casual beach day, or can I take you out for a tea?

Katie from Save-On Foods

You were the blonde cashier at Save-On; I was the short-haired redhead buying too many vine tomatoes. We chatted about homemade preserves and Sudoku, and by the time I was out the door I realized I should have told you how adorable you are, but by the time I came back into the store I felt like a dufus because you were busy with more customers. Want to make some salsa with me?

Stealing Glances on the #9

I jumped on the #9 bus at Broadway & Windsor. Had I noticed you sitting there when I was trying to get my pass out to scan, I would've sat up front next to you. Instead I walked to the back of the bus, but happened to be in great eye line as we kept stealing glances with each other for rest of ride :) Then we both got off at same stop & conveniently almost walked into each other. Both looked back but think you might've been trying to find whatever place you were looking for. You: Tall, brunette, facial hair/beard, light grey long-sleeve waffle shirt & jeans. Me: Redhead/strawberry blonde trying to read my book between glances, glasses, beige tank top & jean capris. Here's to hoping we can actually chat!

Late night banter with J on 84 to and from UBC!

I was silly goof and never asked if we could trade info to hangout! I had lots of fun talking to you tonight. As we said Vancouver isn't the most openly social city so it was refreshing getting to bust a gut with a stranger over "Train operator Larry getting crushed by a sandbag in a freak testing accident." You mentioned you have a gf and I have a bf so it'd be great to just hangout or trade books since we live in the same area! If you don't see this I bet I'll see you in the area or on some late night bus ride. To verify what is my name or what phone-case do I have or what country is Larry from? Cheers!

Russian beauty on 135 SFU

I was sitting at the back corner of the bus. You were sitting on the side bench on the opposite side of the bus from me. We kept exchanging glances and smiles. I'm sorry if I was staring, but you really are a very beautiful Russian girl. Your name starts with an S, mine starts with a B. I got off at Rosser Ave. You stayed on, so I have no clue where you got off. In the unlikely event that you do see this, coffee/ dinner/ drinks?

Canada line Bridgeport to vancouver 602 and 311 bus arrivals 5:50 am

You and I are making eye contact and you like my brightly colored shoes. I carry a heavy knapsack. You are Jamaican and I Caucasian. Your stop is Olympic village I Vancouver City. We have met in the line up for home around 5:00pm 601/311 Bay.

Green hair and pretty eyes

My friend and I walked onto the bus and you and I smiled at eachother briefly. I saw that some big drunk dude behind you kept attempting to talk to you so I asked how your night went. You were with friends at the Pint and my friend and I had left the beach. You showed us some of your make up work from film school, and jokingly asked for a bite of my burger when the other drunk guy started pillaging my friends fries. You introduced yourself and told us to find you on Facebook but I didn't have any luck finding you. Thought I should give this a go.

Quiznos on Broadway

You were ordering sandwiches at the Bayswater & Broadway Quiznos (in Kits). You gave me a winning smile when I waltzed in and asked the sandwich maker to fill my water bottle. And a second smile as I left. You're white, brown shaved hair. I was wearing a blue men's business shirt and flowing badass leopard print pants. I considered asking for your number as I left but chickened out.

#16 Bus PokemanGo player

You sat next to me and played Pokeman Go. I asked you to show me how it works. Then told you about a man on Commercial Drive who was fed up with people traipsing through his front lawn and he posted a sign saying "get a life". You said you were caught up in it and that you worked in the industry. Did you not notice every woman and gay man was enthralled with you? You are quite a handsome catch! Love for you to show me more.....about PokemanGo that is.

Awesome lady July 15 , 9:15 99 B-line argument Thank you

I got on the bus on Cambie and I sat in between you and a guy who decided to spread his legs open when I sat down. I asked him if he could give me a bit of space and he became belligerent and you stood up for me. I really appreciated it but I was so upset I only realized I didn't thank you once I got off the bus. Maybe I can take you out for lunch or something! You seemed rad.

You have an amazing smile

I limped onto the 19 bus towards metrotown at Main and 2nd today. I put my bike on the front, I couldn't ride because I hurt my knee. I sat across from you at the front of the bus and we exchanged a few smiles during the ride. You had a smile to light up a room and I think we had a connection, even though we didn't speak. I hobbled off at Kingsway and Carolina. Send me a message and let's go for a drink ;)

Forgive me for not saying hi, or asking if you needed directions somewhere, I was blown away by your smile and couldn't come up with the courage before my stop came. Me: Brunette female, Blue Jacket, black and white t-shirt, got on at Cornwall/4th You: Red shirt, amazing tan, and Vancouver map on your lap chatting briefly with an elderly lady.

Young(er) guy bus driver sun. July 3 no6 rd-Cambie

You pulled away from the stop just as I approached. I asked you a question then said nevermind and started walking. You were about to drive away then stopped again and I got on the bus. Im usually not attracted to (other) blondes but something about you. It was a short bus ride,but I wish I DID STAY on the bus. I didnt realise till after i left that maybe you were flirting when you made that suggestion? Will you be friends with me? ??? (No if u have gf but pls let me know either way) Me- blonde hair in bun, really short and thin. Wearing grey cardigan, And dark jeans. I was having two car problems what were they? Or who else was on the bus ?etc. -please no replies from random people with strange requests, or if you think you can trick me/catfish. Im not stupid and will know in two seconds what youre up to. - I came back a week later same time to give you a pretty rose i picked.Then realised how many 410 ? busses there are back to back, (i m guessing at the bus #) and that your schedule might change week to week so I attached it to the sign post hoping you'd see, and not some caterpillar or angry commuter, and left. It was sort of a series of odd events/ decisions that made me end up there that day, so just wanted to put this out there, and hoping i dont sound like a psycho at the same time.
