Waiting for the Bus at Granville and 12th

You: waiting for the bus on Granville at 6:45pm outside of the Stanley Theatre. Brown hair, wearing a long beige coat, dressed up for something fancy or perhaps just looking as lovely as ever. Me: blue rain jacket clad biker (w/o a helmet...) racing down Granville, late for dinner. Shall I race back for coffee on Granville next week?

WHERE? Taking the 209 bus from Phibbs exchange to downtown WHEN? Bus left around 8:15pm In a nutshell I(lanky looking with blue jeans, brown adidas nestors, black windbreaker with hood up because I was grumpy ) was sitting at the very back of the bus facing the front and then out of nowhere you(this Daria-esque girl but with lighter hair) came on to the bus at Phibbs and sat in a seat looking out towards the back window where I was sitting. You had black specs, light-ish brown hair, were wearing a green jacket, grey tights, had a light brown-ish bag and I think you had blue gum boots on too. We were both listening to our ipods and you looked sleepy but pretty into whatever you were listening to. Anyway, I was gonna ask what you were listening to but you hopped off the bus before I had a chance and then disappeared forever. What were you listening to anyway? I need to know! Oh also, I believe you hopped off the bus inbetween Richards and Seymour. I NEED TO KNOW WHAT YOU WERE LISTENING TO!!

Such natural beauty.

You (gorgeous, long and wavy brunette with very little (no?) makeup) approached the bus stop on Cambie and were going to stand next to me but quickly you decided to sit and share the bench with me. As you approached I glanced up at your beautiful smiling face looking my way and I just froze. I'm such a shy person when I witness someone like you; I just don't have any words. It's those times that I'd love to be able to gaze into your eyes and be still and present in a shared moment of silent beauty. I'm glad this site has this column because I'd jump at chance to meet you for coffee/tea. Fingers crossed in Vancouver.

230 upper Lonsdale bus

I got on the bus at the 15th street stop, we made eye contact and I got lost in your eyes for a moment. I was too nervous to talk to you so I sat down in the seat in front of you next to the back door of the bus. Me: black leather jacket with a red strip across the chest and down the arms with a black plaid shirt and a black and grey toque. You: where wearing a black shirt, black leggings and a black jacket. You had deep dark eyes anymore could get lost in and light brown hair. You got off two stops later at 19th street and glanced back at me after you got off the bus.

#16 Bus caught eyes and smiles

I was in a lime green waste length coat sitting at the front (where seniors normally sit) of #16 Arbutus bus heading downtown from Granville/Broadway stop. You were sitting diagonally from me on the left hand side of the bus, 2nd row. Our eyes met, we held the gaze, we shared a smile, you acknowledged me with a nod and I smiled again. I wanted to tell you that you are so handsome. You made my day with your dashing no-hair professional look and that smile made me smile all day. Then you got off at W. Georgia and Granville...I wondered what the chances are that we might meet again? Anything is possible.

Good Omens

We were both riding the #7 bus heading downtown on Wednesday morning. You were reading Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman. I'd never heard of it but love both those authors so requested from the library then & there. This morning Terry Pratchett died and it made me think of you.

Clark and Broadway

You asked me how my night was going and I told you how my drunk friend passed out somewhere. I think it was around 10 or 11 at the 9 stop at Clark and Broadway. You were wearing a toque, I think a green long sleeved shirt and you have a well grown moustache. I wish we could have talked more but I saw my friends on the bus, Hope you see this and we can get to know each other?

Asian girl at the bus depot!

You were an Asian girl waiting for someone from the Bolt Bus. I was wearing a bright orange hoodie, standing inside the bus depot when you suddenly approached me to ask when the Bolt bus was coming in. I was stunned by how pretty you were! I can't stop thinking about you. Let's go grab a drink!

Lost in your cuteness

I was with my dad at Deer Garden on Fraser Street. I am half Asian, short black hair wearing beige pants and a black t-shirt. You are Chinese (Cantonese) and you were with your mom, wearing black leggings, a light grey t-shirt and a light sweater. You didn't seem to be in that good of a mood. We made eye contact several times in the waiting area, and as we sat at tables beside each other. you were doodling, and ate with your left hand. I noticed you left a napkin with something written on it, but could not make it out, as I noticed it just as the bus-girl used it to wipe the table. I would love to make contact with you and perhaps get to know you better over coffee??

Too many groceries

We met at the 99 bus stop at MacDonald, you had a bunch of groceries and a skateboard, I had a red bandana in my hair, and was wearing a leather vest. We talked about my home town (Aberdeen), skateboarding, and you mentioned your in a talent show tomorrow night. You seemed pretty cool and I'm kicking myself for not asking if you wanted to hang out..

Mrs. Dalloway

It's none of my business, but I'm always drawn to what people read and you were reading Mrs. Dalloway. I was sitting across from you, it was hard not to look, we caught eyes a couple times, but its an difficult way to meet. You are the strikingly beautiful and there was something hauntingly sweet about you I imagined, and I wondered... Anyway, you will probably never see this. But hey, thanks.

Walking/talking and missed you and your cute dog!

Today I decided to wear my heels and forgot my wallet so headed back home. I decided to handle business so I was on the phone gabbing while you passed me with your chocolate lab.? All kinds of cute. We didn't make eye contact but if I could press replay, I'd be off the phone, actually say hi and take a chance, to meet you. You were wearing black, had a bit of a beard or scruff and I was in black jeans, and you can let me know the color of my jacket if you get this..

Victoria to Vancouver Ferry, 5 PM sailing - Sunday Feb 8th

You sat down beside me in the Swartz Bay ferry terminal, apologized for brushing against me and flashed the most incredibly charming smile. You have long dark hair and were dressed all in black. We were also both near the back of the 620 bus from Tsawassen to the Canada Line, but when our eyes met I felt uncomfortable for some reason and looked away. I think that you are stunningly beautiful and I haven't been able to stop thinking about you since.

22 Knight bus around 10:45pm

As soon as I got on the bus, I noticed you. A cute guy in all black with a black toque. I was scoping for a seat I looked back at you and you appeared to be holding back a smile. I'm not sure if I caused this or you just had a funny thought. You looked back at me a few times during the ride, and when I got off I was too shy and tired to look at you and flash you a smile. I should have.

Shaminder / Shoppers

You work days at a drugstore in Kerrisdale. You are in your 20s, pretty, with beautiful big eyes and a serious and sexy demeanour. My schedule only rarely allows me to pop in when you're in the store, but I'm always excited to get a glimpse of you when I can. I try to make eyes at you but you're all business!! I would like to offer to take you for lunch during your break at one of our neighbourhood's fine eateries - I would love to get to know you because you have such a beautiful way about you!

Double smiles on Main

I was buying some drinks in the cigarette shop on Main Street right at the Broadway/Main bus stop to go with my pre-ordered food from the Wallflower. I thought you were with the group of guys standing near the door, but as I walked out, we shared smiles. You were super cute and had a great friendly smile. I picked up my Wallflower take-out. As I left, you were going in. We shared another smile and all I could muster up was a, "hey." You said it too. That was a sweet double. I was a bit beardy that night. I didn't really get a glimpse of what you were wearing. I was more focussed on your smile. I hope we get to smile again. Maybe I'd say more than hey. Either way, you made my night and a lasting impression. :)

Kits to UBC

I see you almost every weekday morning. We ride the same bus route at the same time -# 44 or # 84 to UBC. When we get off the bus you, go to the left and I go to the right. We have smiled a few times, but you make me too nervous to say "hi". I hope you see this and are not as nervous as I am.

41 and main

I have seen you several times at main st waiting for bus #41/43. You always had a book with you or some reading material. You always got off at cambie/oakridge and go to the canada line. you had a wig on at halloween. And I've always thought to myself that you looked like bradley cooper. Just wanted to say hi.

Blurry but persistent

I had celebrated a bit before going on holidays so I was a bit clouded by Xmas mirth. The bus was full. You let me sit beside you. Did you lean in to me? Did we share something there? Maybe I'm imagining but it sticks in my mind. I'm hobbled by shyness or else I would have looked you straight in the eye and memorized your face. All I can remember clearly is how warm and comfortable it felt. I'd save a spot for you any day.

Broadway and Arbutus rainy day

We were on the #16 northbound around 11 am, we both got off at Arbutus and Broadway. You were dressed in all black with black headphones, dark hair, big duffle bag. I was trying to think of a way to talk to you as I was crossing the street but you did it for me; said my umbrella was the coolest one you'd seen in Vancouver (high praise in this rainy city). I told you I got it from the Art Gallery. I wanted to talk more but was shy and late for work, you kept walking past Broadway and I had to wait for my next bus. Hope I see you again, maybe on the bus.

Cycle courier and receptionist: a match made on Homer St

You are a winsome, seemingly disinterested receptionist behind a big white desk. I am a soft-spoken, colourful bike courier who visits about once a week. We exchange pleasantries and speak volumes with our eyes. I'd say more but your coworker stares daggers at me. You're more than just a beautiful face greeting business folks just like I'm more than a punk biker slingin' envelopes. One day I hope to ditch the social baggage between us and have a real exchange.

EYGYPTIAN women with gorgeous EYES ,ash blonde hair, on bus Geaorgia St.

At 7:15 P.M. on January 4/2015 on the 250A Bus. I approached you an approximately 5'5" Egyptian princess with lovely large eyes I complimented and perfect teeth. We spoke about "earplugs" dampening the city noise, of which I was wearing. You disembarked in the West End vicinity just a few blocks east of Denman St. I am 6 feet tall and slim, I was wearing a tan/light brown Fedora hat which has a black band embellishment, a black windbreaker jacket and olive greenish cargo pants. I was heading to West Van on the North Shore. I initiated talking to you, regarding the drunk heavy set guy at the front of the bus, impeding my progression, whilst I was trying to get on and facetiously asked you "is that your husband"? We spoke about martial Arts and no caffeine etc... and that you had taken a self defense course. Your smile is simply delicious, your face perfect and your skin a lovely tone and akin to silk in texture. I adored your openness and unpretentious candor to talk. Would love to see you again, perhaps walk the seawall or something?

On West 6th Ave walking your handsome Doberman

I was waiting for my dog to do her business when you approached me with your Doberman. We had a brief chat and you mentioned you lived nearby and told me about the dog rule. I was there visiting my friend. You introduced yourself as Patrick and I told you my name. I wish I had asked for your number too. If you're free I'd love to get to know you over a cup of coffee.
