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.

Cute redhead on the number 14 bus

I saw you on the number 14 bus leaving downtown you were the cute redhead in the leather jacket and got off the bus just after the Granville st bridge. I was the tall guy with the beard and black jacket. Should have said hi but didn't get the chance. Fingers crossed you see this.

Holiday Trails

I saw you with you with your friends on the sea bus from Lonsdale Quay on Sunday afternoon. Before we docked, I asked if you were running. You said you were in the Lynn Valley area. You were dressed for running - green running jacket, purple pants, black toque. You asked if I was Christmas shopping. I liked your smile. You were cute. Perhaps you'd be up for another trail run or hike to start 2015? Cheers.

#22 bus - Discussed the Hobbit

Your name is Michael. I got on the #22 bus around 10:45pm at the VCC-Clark stop with some people that you knew and you assumed I was with them (but I was not) so you introduced me to yourself and your "Australian friend, Edward". I was coming home from seeing the Hobbit and we got into a discussion about how epic the series was. You said you had always gone to opening nights but missed this year, unfortunately. I got off just a few stops later at Prior and Hawks. This may be a long-shot but perhaps if you see this, you could shoot me a message. :)

"See ya.."

Dunno if you read these but it's worth a shot. We were both on the 99 heading west at around 6pm. You got on at Cambie and sat across from me (you were on the lower seats by the back doors, I was sitting on the upper row). I ran into some friends on the bus but we kept making eye contact through out the whole ride. You gave me the cutest smile as I got off the bus (at Macdonald) and really wished I had asked for your name/number. If u do read these, wanna grab a coffee/drink sometime? I'd love to see you again.

Were you interested?

I was waiting for the bus in front of Harbour centre in the afternoon and you got off a bus (forget which bus #), you checked me out and I smiled. As you walked down the street you looked back and our eyes locked. You: bald/shaved head, black horn rimmed glasses. Me: slim, short haired brunette.

Dazzling Smile in Yaletown

I was sitting in my car at a red light on Davie at about 530, just minding my own business. You crossed the street in front of me, looked over, and gave me the most dazzling smile I've seen in ... well as long as I can remember. You: long straight black hair, asian (maybe Phillipina), wearing black tights. Me: Driving black car, wearing ball cap, and probably looking a bit dazed. You threw something away in front of the skytrain station, and started walking up Davie. I drove off to do something that seems totally unimportant now. Would like to see that smile again. Hopefully talk to you this time. Make you laugh. Maybe take you out dancing ;)

In the line up to register to vote at Britannia....

You were behind me in line November 15th to vote in the municipal election. You were wearing a lovely colourful scarf. I asked you who to vote for and you told me to vote for Meena. You were on your break from work at Sweet Cherubim. Every time I try to come in to ask you out, you are either hidden in the back of kitchen, or there is a crazy rush and you're too busy and I don't want to bother you. Besides, it was so long ago, you probably wouldn't recognize me, but hopefully you remember our brief but pleasant encounter.

Christmas Market

You were a tall dark haired man working at the wooden pen booth at the Christmas Market downtown. I had blonde hair and a light brown jacket and asked you for your business card after passing by a few times only to realize that it wouldn't connect me to you at all. I may try to meet you again at the market but if I am un-able to meet you in person I really hope you see this. You seemed gentle, and sweet and I would like to get to know you.
