Rambling Pink Hair on the Night Bus

We ended up at the same bus stop after the gig. Didn't think much of it at first. Then you started talking. To your friend, to yourself, to the bus. We drunkenly bantered about being socially awkward, cringe moments, the quality of your phone book's content. I'd like to do more of that. You had pink hair and a fantastic laugh, I had my old leather jacket on. Leverage that acerbic wit and let me know how my hair was.

Clark & Broadway bus stop

It seemed you and your girlfriend were going to yoga. You both crossed Clark and East Broadway on the north side then down Clark past me at the 22 bus stop and we exchanged some pleasantries and was wondering if you would like to go for a coffee?

You work at a certain fast food joint and I've only seen you there late at night. Sometimes after the bar sometimes not. We've talked many times. On the bus once or twice too. Quite sure your name starts with the letter A. I've been waiting for the next time I run into you but it never happens. Let me know who I am

Smiling Long-Haired Blonde

I was up mixing my coffee and you noticed me from your seat in the far dark corner. There wasn't an opportunity for me to approach as you were with a man (business meeting?). We smiled again when I had to leave at 5pm - leaving through the door near you. Would certainly like to meet you, hoping I've read this correctly!

152 lougheed stn

We rode the bus together on Friday sometime around 5. We both got on at the station. I think you caught me checking you out when you approached the bus. I was sitting near the front facing the driver, you sat beside me in the row across the walkway. You seemed to look my way 4 or 5 times during the trip, and i looked your way after noticing you do it a couple times in hopes of making eye contact but we never seemed to get our timing right. If you should see this, send me a message, tell me something so we know we are the right people, I'd like to pursue the apparent mutual interest.

Hot young lady with strappy green sandals

You were sitting almost beside me at the back of the bus we exchanged glances a couple of times we smiled at each other. Then you moved to the back and the same thing happened again. I regret not blowing you a kiss when I got off at Main. Hope I see you again one day on that awful bus. A connection will be made I hope.

You gave me a 1040 scarf

We met on the bus, you offer me a glass of water, gave me a 1040 scarf and we went for a walk on the beach. It was a wonderful time and I wished I knew how to get ahold of you. Would love to see you again

At No Frills you picked up my Box of Fudgesicles when they fell out of my basket

You said "I'll get that" and went to reach for the box of Fudgesicles that fell from my basket near the frozen food section at the No Frills on East Hastings. You laughed when I awkwardly tried to reach for them and you got to them first... When I said thank you, you smiled and kind of lingered but I got really shy and walked away, looking behind for you as you disappeared among the busy shoppers and groceries. Then you ended up in the same isle as me at the cashiers and smiled at me again. I nervously smiled back but was too shy to say anything... I noticed you were either with your grandmother or mother who was unloading the cart... You walked over towards your groceries and started to pack them. I nervously avoided eye contact but desperately wanted to ask you your name. You were wearing a baseball cap, shorts and a gray shirt? You have an amazing smile and seemed so sweet and kind. I have blonde long straight hair and green eyes, I had a long black skirt and tank top. Wish I got the nerve to tell you my name... Strange I felt like I've met you before too....whoever you are...

ATTN: Cute Phibbs bus boy with glasses who almost alwaaaays reads the morning paper

I've been coerced by my co-workers to post this, so: I've seen you get off at Kootenay Loop and back on the same bus as me every day I've worked my summer job. After the bus stops at Phibbs, you line up for the 239 and I go off to take a different bus. You wear a lot of button-ups, thick-rimmed glasses, have blue eyes, and are almost always reading the newspaper on the bus (: You've looked over a few times (I think) but I am the actual worst at talking to strangers for the first time :$ I think you're super cute! And we should go for coffee if you ever see this. Maybe. Possibly.

Lost Boy from Arkansas at Lynn Canyon

You asked me for directions on the 228 bus on June 1st. We got off the bus for Lynn Canyon suspension bridge. I told you I was from London. You told me you were from Arkansas and you were going to visit friends in Seattle, then go to Portland then San Fran. I never got your name but I wish I had, and I wish I hiked with you.

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

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.
