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

You had me at man bun..

I know this is a long shot..but I saw you on the 5:45 seabus headed downtown from the quay last Wednesday evening. You were tall, handsome, wearing a suit, and had your hair pulled back. I sat one row ahead of you, but I wish I would have said something. When we got off the seabus, you headed to the sky train and I was headed downtown. I missed my chance. Taking a risk you may read this.

seabus night girl

You was seating close to me in seabus to lonsdale quay and after saw you in 230bus. I saw your eyes just in the bus and didn't have time and courage to say something plus I had a bag with me. I like your eyes and the way how you looked at me. I was blonde with gray jacket on me. I hope for you had the same emotions.

Cutest bagpiping, beatboxing saytr I've ever seen!

I've seen you a few times around the city (you're pretty hard to miss) but today when waiting for the Seabus outside I stopped and really watched you for the first time. And dude, you are a talented man. Couldn't find any change in my backpack, but I think you saw me looking anyways and flashed me a grin. Would love to chat sometime, anyone who can pull off street performing as a musical satyr has got to have some stories.

Where: Waterfront Station

Skytrain from waterfront

You: Curly dark brown hair and brown eyes, unshaven, white beats headphones, greenish shirt, converse runners. Me: longish dark brown wavy hair, green eyes, black sweater over a blue tank top, listening to earbuds. I noticed you waiting for the Seabus at Lonsdale Quay at the south doors, I was standing right behind you. You didn't sit near me but I was happy to find that you were on the same skytrain as me headed towards King George. You stood by the door and I was sitting, our eyes met a few times above the crowd. You got off at Broadway station, our eyes met again as you were leaving the train and it felt like something passed between us. If it had been less crowded maybe I would have been brave enough to say hello, but you were gone before I had the chance. I'd love to get a chance to try again

Seabus going to north van at Around 2pm on June 12th(Friday)

Few weeks ago now but I saw you on the seabus. Your back was to downtown and I was facing the city. You were in the second row from the rear window and I was in the same row facing the other way. You: absolutely beautiful, with dark hair and perfectly tanned skin, very pretty eyes, lululemon like pants, and a purplish top I think. Relatively tall as well. Me: I would have been wearing cargo shorts and had a grey backpack. About 6'1 with dark blonde hair and blue eyes, roughly shaven probably at the time and have a leg band tattoo around my right calf about 4 inches wide. We glanced at each other a few times in the seabus but never spoke. We were close together getting off the seabus and both headed towards the cab waiting area. If I stick out in your mind at all it'd be great to meet for coffee. Wish I had said something.

Elegant Seabus Beauty

I noticed you across the waiting room at the Seabus Waterfront. You were wearing a black low-ish cut blouse and bright red lipstick. You saw me, tall dark-haired in a dark business suit. We traded looks across the room until the boat arrived and then we sat across from one another. You smiled knowingly as I glimpsed subtly at your cleavage and stared longingly at your soft red lips.

Handsome Cyclist Almost Brushed By a Bus Heading to Waterfront Station

We were both heading to Waterfront Station and stopped at a light on Granville and West Cordova. You were on your bike looking handsome and smiling with a nose ring. I was in a long dress and had red hair and yoga bag over my shoulder. A bus turned right and barely squeezed by you, to which I said, "That was close!" We both went to Waterfront and exchanged a few glances and smiles. I headed to the SkyTrain and you were going toward the SeaBus. I felt energetically drawn to you and wish I had worked up the courage to have a conversation but I was too shy! Coffee?

Tall and Dreaded

The dreaded and tall man who works for Canada Post, talking to another man on the Seabus to North Van I believe. Your energy just popped out at me. Pretty sure I've seen you in a kilt on the North Shore before, too. Look out for me, a fellow North Van weirdo. Stay beautiful.

3:30 SeaBus June 18 reading

I wanted to ask you what you were reading. I never see anyone our age (26-32) reading anymore.. You were wearing kelly green shorts, a small black backpack and had a red road bike. I was going to try to talk to you when the SeaBus unloaded but you stuck your earbuds in. Love to grab a coffee and get to know you more.

Leaving Two Lions Pub Saturday night

I'm the woman in the striped red and black tanktop/red and black long sleeved tshirt (had on earlier) and grey jeans. You, blonde with a baby blue(?) sweater on asked if we were leaving. I said yeah and we both said not was our first time there. I was a bit thrown by you coming up to me but am kicking myself now. Sorry if I came off as unapproachable or uninterested. I had to make my Seabus :(. Well, if you ever read this, let me just say that you're an attractive guy and I should've got your number. If you can get in touch, do!

Sunday morning on the Seabus, North Van side

Hi, I saw you Sunday morning on the Seabus (9:30 or 9:45 sailing, we were both getting on at the North Van side. This was truly a random encounter, I have never written one of these notes, but you made an impression. I was wearing jeans, a teal down jacket, and a tuque (orange and yellow stripes). I thought you were really handsome, and I think we smiled at each other. I should have said "hello". Drop me a note if you want to grab a coffee or a pint.

Cute girl reading on the seabus

Last seabus of the night, headed to North Van on Saturday. You were the girl in mostly black with curly brown hair, sitting near the front immersed in a book. Just wanted to let you know how refreshing and attractive it is these days to see a cute girl reading instead of scrolling through her phone!

Aug 9th 2:45PM Seabus from North Van to Downtown

We were sitting across from one another. You wore a purple top and long black skirt. Average height, athletic/dancer's body-type, long dark hair, very fair skinned, green/blue eyes, with a medium-large topaz/amber necklace. You were listening to your iPhone near the front of the seabus. Me: tall, plain black-t with white shorts, grey flat cap, black sunglasses and black work sidebag. I was listening to my iPod and fumbling with my iced coffee trying not to rudely stare while on my way to work. I had a distinct feeling we had met once before and your name was Claire M-something, but I couldn't be sure and was trying to figure it out in my head.... Before I knew it the boat was across the inlet. Not sure if you or your friends read the Straight, but worth a shot. I was hoping to see if you'd be interested in coffee or tea sometime.

Will 'J' set out like Laura Curtis?

A classy blue-eyed brunette with a cute pony tail sipping on starbucks coffee and reading a book (419 by Will Ferguson). It was Tuesday (Feb 12) 5pm seabus from N-Vsn to DT then we exchanged a few glances on Canada-Line. Pretty beige coat, grey sweater, white shirt, and burgundi rain boots. Cute fingers and purpulish nail polish. Will that coincidence happen again? May be. Will we connect? I hope so :)

Ben Howard saves the damsel in distress ;)

I've never posted on here but you seem pretty artsy and probably read the Straight so here goes nothing.. I met you on the Seabus after that strange guy kept chatting me up. You were super cute in your grey hat, with a lip ring and nice smile. We talked about Ben Howard (I'll have to check him out) and I wanted to ask your name but then we parted ways. Maybe we can grab a coffee sometime?

The Comical Seabus Choir

They were singing out of key. We both laughed, you commented on how comical it was. We sat next to each other on the Seabus, you were reading Eckhart Tolke's A New Earth, I was reading Autobiography of a Yogi. You were gorgeous with a smile that could shatter darkness. I was way to shy and wish I had said more.

Handsome guy from seabus

You handsome guy got of the seabus with a friend I believe. I was waiting by the news bins for my friend. We locked eyes a few times and I wanted to talk to you but I was to shy. You turned around one last time before walking through the doors to leave through the main entrance. I wish I would have said something. I hope you see this and we can grab coffee sometime

Maroon Leather Jacket on the Seabus

You were a beautiful fair woman on the seabus heading towards North Vancouver. You were wearing a maroon leather jacket and had your hair up and back. There was the compulsion for me to walk up to you and talk to you but your beauty made me nervous but now I regret it. I should have swallowed the anxiety and just done it; but I didn't. I think you may have seen me: sitting 4 aisles away in front of you to your right. I'm Asian and wore black with a green shirt inside. I was reading on my iPhone and stealing glances at you in between sentences. Don't usually post here but I thought I might as well give it a shot as I have been regretting it all day.

Beautiful Super Redhead

Saw you, this beautiful redhead on Robson. I think it was on the 29th September but not sure. We locked eyes for a few seconds. I am older and was wearing a hat. Saw you later on the seabus and once again we locked eyes and you smiled. Then you turned away. Hope I did not scare you as I looked pissed off all the time, but am a loving pussycat under the scowl. Wish I would have gone up to you and gave you a big kiss right there and then. You are the most beautiful female I have ever seen in my life. Love that super red hair. Wow what a beauty !

You were with your daughter waiting for the seabus saturday evening after the Lions game. Me with my son heading to Lonsdale Quay. I just wanted to tell you how very beautiful I thought you were, your eyes and your lips left me dreaming of you all night. I hope you have someone that tells you that every morning when they roll over and kiss you.

Friday night seabus

First time doing one of these, worth a shot. You and like 6 of your buddies were on the seabus from the quay to downtown Friday night around 10. I was by myself heading over on the seabus. I looked over and you and your friends were looking at me, you then smiled and waved at me. I was caught of guard and walked towards the door. When we got on seabus you guys sat facing me, couldn't help but glance over, should of said hi to you. You were tall, blonde hair, blue button up shirt, jeans. Me: black shirt, mint colored jeans, gold flats. Drinks sometime?

229 on Sat afternoon

Sat beside you on the 229 from the seabus and felt a spark when our arms touched. By your look leaving the bus, I think you did too. You were wearing a white cardigan and olive shirt. Let me know if you'd like to meet again.

Seabus, Saturday May 26, N.V to Van 5:30

I was on my way to see Roger Waters at BC place and you came and sat in front of me on the Seabus, looked as if you were on your way to work or to meet with friends for the night. Anyways, you seemed chill and you had a really sweet disposition about you, get in touch if you'd like to grab a coffee or something.
