Tall dark and handsome stage actor on #20

I sat across from you weeks ago now on the #20 downtown early one morning. You chatted with an older woman charismatically, daif hello to an acquaintance, of your profession I believe, and were generally quite charming to behold. I didn't want to interrupt however and so read my book in silence until I could not help but laugh out loud several times from the comedy. We made eye contact several times and smiled across the isle before you said something, also charming, about my laughter and we exchanged a few words at which point I mentioned I recognized you from the neighborhood and you said you lived on the Drive and elaborated on your work in various theatres over the years. And then abruptly we were all getting off the bus downtown and I never even got your name which I immediately regretted. I'd love to converse further. I have taken to crossing my fingers every time I get on the bus these days or that I'll simply have the pleasure of running into you one day in the street.

Sunday afternoon on the sea bus

We were standing in line to get on the sea bus at waterfront. I excused myself and asked you if you knew of any good restaurants at the Quay. You said you were heading to work at Denny's. I said "Oh..." and seemed disappointed. I thought you were really cute.

I was the guy unsure about my use of the word 'soliloquy' while speaking with a friend. You were the English teacher holding a basketball who assured me I'd used it correctly. My 2nd favorite bus encounter, so far. Wish I'd gotten your name.

Beautiful girl/off center lip ring/ AMAZING orange hair

On the 20 bus going south, right around 12th and commercial dr. May 20th I believe??? My jaw hit the floor when I saw you. I did my best to play it cool. We made eye contact many times and both exchanged smiles. I was the guy in work clothes and sunglasses trying very hard not to stare! You had beautiful dark skin, maybe first nations?? Your whole style was perfect. Not a hair out of place. You could easily model.... I didn't really look the best as I was returning from work but rest assured, I clean up well! Getting another chance to see you would make a man very happy:)

Last week on the 312 from Scott road....I called you gorgeous.

So, you got on the bus and immediately I was taken aback. I'm a naturally social person, but I didn't want to approach you on the bus full of people and totally froze up. We got off at the same stop, I ran up, told you how beautiful you are and ran off (I had to hurry home to let someone in). I should have talked longer or gave my number or something but if you see this coffee would be great sometime.

19 Bus Ride full of unanswered questions

We were both taking the 19 bus home around 6:30pm. You were wearing a jersey over a t-shirt and asked me about who the customers are for items being sold on the street in the downtown eastside. I tried to answer your question which led to many more. I told you about my bike bag that was recently stolen from me. Tell me where I was when it was stolen and let's get a drink. I feel as though our conversation was unfinished and I also have the name of the documentary you are looking for!

Cat eyes on the 99 B-Line

For all I know a woman of your calibre is already spoken for but I've occasionally admired your style and beauty from afar on my morning commute and wished it were easier to start a conversation on a crowded bus. Today you got on at Main and sat down beside me after a few stops listening to music on your phone. You were wearing ox blood coloured oxfords and carrying a canvas tote with an illustrated print of the alphabet. I was the loser in the navy cardigan, wearing Persol sunglasses, a black five-panel and black Asics trainers.

Punk Guy Helps Old Drunk Guy

I was in the number 7 Dunbar and we had stopped at Heatley and pender. And an old drunk man stumbled and fell underneath the parked bus. You had long dark hair and lip piercings. Wearing all black. You jumped to action to help the man up and offered to take him to the triage where you worked to sober up and have a bite to eat. You really tried to take him with you and help him out. But he refused. I was the punk chick with the punk mohawk who thought it was absolutely heartwarming to see such kindness. I thought you were really handsome. I'd like to see you some time. Maybe over a beer?

Beauty in Red near Kingsgate Mall

You were the super cutie with dark hair, a red top, and army green pants twirling an earbud as you walked West on Broadway. I was the tall guy sitting at the bus stop wearing a green coat and black jeans. You smiled at me and I thought about it all day at work. Can I buy you a beer sometime?

Woman holding violin case

Sat next to you at a bus stop bench last week and was really consumed by your appearance. Ginger shoulder length hair, a nice form fitting dress, tights, ballet flats. You were holding a soft violin case, had a striking face and a great perfume. More than anything, I just wanted you to know how gorgeous you looked.

Lady Driver. C23 bus.Long Red Hair. Chatted at bus stop west of Yaletown Roundhouse

We chatted briefly while we waited for full buses to go by. You were a driver waiting for her shift to start. I believe it Sat or Sun Apr 26-17. I got on a bus and we waived at each other as I stupidly left on the bus. I left my number and name with the driver, but she likely didn't pass on. I am a writer and am very tall, late fifties and a black baseball cap with a backpack. If any other drivers in that area, please tell her. I would very much like to chat further with her. Thanks

#321 Bus Driver in Surrey

Shout out to the Amaranthe hoodie bus driver I met in January or February boarding the #321 at Surrey Central, and then again this week on Monday April 18. I was wearing a Xandria t-shirt as I boarded your bus at Newton Exchange just after 5pm & we discussed Leaves' Eyes. I am open to a message from you if you're interested. :)

Catching the #22 on Robson around 4:30

To unimaginably cute Asian individual who was waiting for a bus on Burrard and Robson. Just want to tell you you made my day! I was really anxious because I had an exam later that day. I may appeared really irritated when you looked at my face (I was wondering why you did so but my best guess is that you were wondering whether I am trying to get onto the bus or not.) I was not able to appreciate that moment at all. Now that the only thing I can do is cherish my memory of seeing you. You were holding a chocolate wrapped with a ribbon that seemed like a gift. I wish I had a piece of that chocolate.

Brunette Female catching the #25 7am bus

You: super cute brunette young woman crossing the street with me at Fraser &25th. Me: Tallish male with goatee and blue eyes wearing a green cap and blue hoodie heading to work. You were carrying coffee drinks in a tray.. We were both running for the bus and barely caught it. I sat beside you on the bus.. I wish I had said more but it was a short window of time and also early in the morning:) I hope you see this or run into you again. I wouldn't normally post something like this but I've been thinking about you all day. You just never know.. Worth a try:) Scott.

Cute Guy

Me and you were talking on the street near Vancity on left side waiting for 106 bus and you were talking to me about your daughter and I was pregnant and I was talking about my concert and you said you didn't know who they were but I would love coffee one day with you.

Horns in your hair and purple stockings

I got on the bus at Main and E Cordova, heading East. We locked eyes for a moment and you flashed me this amazing smile. I was so flustered, I just raised my eyebrows and smiled back. It was busy, so I had to move to the back of the bus, and I lost you after that. You had little ram horns in your hair, glasses and purple stockings. I like your style. Would you like to grab a coffee at Far Out sometime?

Baseball capped fellow outside of Starbucks waiting for... me?

I was minding my own business and was waiting for my best friend coming down Cypress street. I waited outside of the Starbucks near, right on the bike rack and saw you waiting at the intersection of Cypress and Cornwall. You were wearing a black cap, sunglasses, black Tshirt, jeans and great shoulders and jaw. I was the girl in loose ripped jeans and a bright red and floral Lulu zipup and sunglasses. It seems like you were waiting for someone too. Wish I could see what's underneath those sunglasses and that I said hello before leaving and seeing that you took my waiting spot (bike rack). We could have shared that waiting spot...

15 Cambie/50 False Creek: friendly guy

Hi, I was riding home on the bus after work this evening (about 11:30pm, just a few passengers, maybe only me, not sure); my eyes were closed, so at first, i wasn't even sure if you were talking to me. You said "how's it going?" or "how are you doing?" I guess i looked startled as i tentatively said "hi". You said "oh, sorry, i won't bother you", and to be honest, i felt relieved... and then regretful because you were lovely and open and friendly and so readily considerate, it was sweet... silly maybe, but somehow, you charmed me... Here's my delayed response: "tired and too thoughtful, unwinding from work" Thanks for the lovely interruption. I'm sorry i didn't talk with you. It would have been nice to meet you.

44 Bus line on Burrard

I was walking behind you with a friend and noticed your outfit as you were walking ahead. We got on the same bus line yesterday around 5:45 pm on Burrard and W Georgia. You sat across from me to my right, your left. We got off at the same stop. West 4th and Vine. I wanted to say hello, which I would typically do but you made me far too nervous. Who knows if this works but hey, worth a shot! You never know. :)

Saw you on the bus on your way home from work. You sat right in front of me even though the bus was empty. You told me your name was Charlotte. You were so adorable when every word you spoke came through that beautiful smile. Was going to tell where I worked (close by) or get your number but my stop came. If you can remember my name respond to this with it. I would love to come across you and see that smile and those gorgeous eyes again.

Skytrain facepalm

You asked me directions on how to get to the seabus and I told two different ways you could take. The train you ended up taking was the extra 5 min ride but no transfers. As you were getting on the train we both looked at each other smiled and waved goodbye anyway I really should have continued a conversation with you and asked for your number because you have the most beautiful blue eyes and amazing smile! If for some cosmic luck of a chance you see this I would like nothing more than to take you out to dinner

Bee tattoo

We sat across from one another on a bus travelling up Dundas St. You had piercing blue eyes and a bee tattoo on your right ankle. We both had headphones in. I caught your gaze, but I was too shy to just say, "hello." So, hello. Would you like to go for coffee sometime?
