Magic Mike

I was sitting on the sidewalk, my spare wheel laying beside me staring at my flat tire when you appeared out of the dark, a knight in shining rip stop nylon outer apparel. Asking if I could use your help, I felt a surge of rejoice as my long day of work was making it a monumental task to just change my flat. You were kind and funny, so incredibly sexy and your accent Mmmm, as you helped me figure out the complicated workings of fine European design of my Audi's wheel changing apparatus I was smitten and undressing you with my eyes. Mike we successfully changed a flat together imagine what else we could accomplish!!! I gave you a juice from the place I work, come see me there :)

Hottie in Dodge 2500 on Swartz to tsawwassen ferry

I've never done anything like this before, but I feel like an idiot for not trying to chat with you. 7pm ferry, you were beside me in the lineup. We smiled at each other a few times... Lost each other when unloading, and I could be wrong but I swear I saw you pull off on marine drive in Vancouver. You're crazy handsome, and hopefully you see this. If so, let me know what I was driving and what color my hair is.

The Yale Saturday

To the god of a man overshadowing every guy in the room with his height and amazing tall athletic body, I was way too shy to approach you but I'd absolutely love to get your number. I think you were wearing a dark shirt with little (red?) speckles on it. You've also got dark hair. I doubt you noticed me but I was wearing a blue dress and I have some long blonde hair. This guy didn't strike me as the type of person to read these but if you know anyone that matches the description feel free to help a girl out.

The Pint before the hockey game

You and a friend were sitting at a table beside my friend and I having a few prior to the game. I am the blond lady... you made a remark as I passed by of 'looking good'... And who doesn't like to hear that? LOL. You asked if you could buy us a drink at the rink. Regret not taking you up on your offer. Do over?

I was at the bus stop and you seem to just been out of a bar, you were with a male friend and you both were very drunk, you approached me and ask where I was from, when I said Mexico, you start to say that you had been to Guadalajara and you eat guacamole, I thought you were very cute but you were too drunk, so I get nervous, coffee maybe?

Harry Shum Jr.-lookalike chasing toddler through aisles of Shoppers Drug Mart

I couldn't not notice you chasing a curly-haired toddler through the aisles of the Shoppers Drug Mart at Granville and 13th. You seemed to be helping the kid's parents as they shopped and having fun while doing so. You shyly offered up a few apologetic smiles when you scrambled by, dodging other customers, and trying to keep up with your energetic kiddo friend. He was definitely having a good time. In addition to being impressed with your child minding skills, was immediately struck by my attraction to you. You were a slender asian man in a baseball cap and possibly leather shoes. Maybe late 20's to early 30's? Beyond being incredibly handsome, your face seemed really kind, too. My friend mistook you for the actor Harry Shum Jr from Glee, though a second glance said probably not. Maybe the baseball cap look had you giving off celebrity vibes. And me? I was the young asian woman wearing a dark knee-length coat, purple hood, and short rainboots. I was shopping with a friend. Let me know if you noticed me too. Maybe we can chill with your kid friend at a park or meet up for some other kind of city adventure on our own.

99 BLine - YOU: blackhatted, redhead, charming eavesdropper

Boarding the 99BLine at Commercial/Broadway this morning just after 11am, my friend and I were the last to scramble on because I was loading my bike. You were sitting in the articulated-hips section of the bus, and as we walked past you, I was laughing and said something to my friend about how I wasn't *that* hungover. You said something complimentary and I told you how much nicer you are than my friend, and then I commended you for such a lovely black and grey hat. Sadly you got off well before the end of the line -- clearly I was hungover enough that my reaction time was tooooo slooooow to ask you for your number. Want to go somewhere and eavesdrop together? I like your chutzpah. [Me: black jacket + toque, grey tights, clunky snowboots, hangover glasses]

Bear Sized Bouncer

I think I've seen you a few times at the Rio. You might be security for venue shows? You have long hair, often wear curb stomper boots and your built like a damn mountain. Hello, greetings, this is just a message to let you know you're so handsome. Last time I saw you was Hari Kondabolu's show. I wanted to get up and say hi to you walking up and down the aisle in front of the stage but I couldn't think of anything witty to say beyond the strong need to climb you like a tree.

Sample server at Vij's restaurant (Cambie)

You were a sample server at the Vij's restaurant in the lounge area. Around 5,8, black curly hair, olive skin and a beautiful accent. I was in a white sweater, 5,7, blond curly hair and blue eyes. We exchanged glances many times and you came to my table more often then the others. We both went home in the same direction but I never got the courage to talk to you. Would love to see you again some time and maybe go out for a coffee.

Skytrain to Waterfront Station

You - tall, cute, well dressed, glasses, brown boots. Me - blonde hair, bangs, green glasses, bundled up. We both got on at Main Street Skytrain Station and shared a few glances back and forth until I got off at Burrard. I turned back and smiled at you before I left... hopefully, I'll bump into you again on our morning commute :)

Grouse Mt Gondola

Hi "just a person", aka not a ski instructor ;) Something inside is telling me you aren't just your average run of the mill person. There's something about you that intrigues me. I couldn't help but look through your bus window, as I walked by, wondering who you are. You looked at me too. Then we both did that thing and turned around and looked at each other again. You have a cute little gap between your front teeth and nice blue eyes and I think you had a kiwi accent. I hope you see this ad and respond. I'd like to meet up and learn more about you.

Burner at the Squamish Gas Station

You asked me what I was famous for at Burning Man. I asked you what you would do if you create anything in your life inspired by the festival what it would be. We talked about graduation, and community, and how it is the first two go when the going gets tough. You told me you teach kids how to build lego robotics. I told you I teach kids how to ride horses and get woken up in the night by avalanches. And then I lost my nerve, and got in my car and drove away. Then I decided that was stupid, and turned around and looped back, but you were already gone. Want to continue that conversation somewhere that is not a gas station parking lot?

Braiding on the #3

I was the woman groggily re-braiding my hair on the #3 bus just before 8am Friday morning. You were the guy sitting across from me making a pretty good show of not looking at me until you surprised me when you went to leave. Thanks for the nice words. I wish I had been awake enough to return them properly. Say hi earlier next time. :)
