Puerto Vallarta

Your eagle eye noticed the sunscreen I had just purchased and was already in my bag. You caught me off guard by noticing this on a very wet Vancouver day. You mentioned your brother and his partner had just move to Puerto Vallarta after you found out where I was going. Shy at best...perhaps you were trying to connect, and I realize I should have gotten the message....So here I am making the effort and enjoying every moment of it

Olympic Village Taxi Cab

We both walked towards the cab at the same time, you slightly ahead of me. When you saw me you politely backed away, offering me the cab. When I said "No no you can have it", you pretended you didn't need one and were just trying to make conversation. It was very sweet, I should have asked where you were going and offered to share.

Meet Cute at MeeT

I was the tall brunette reading at the bar, wearing glasses and a black long-sleeve top with jeans. Halfway through dessert, I looked up from my book and we caught eyes. You were wearing a black t-shirt and had blonde hair (so descriptive I know!) You were with a very animated group of friends and your laughter carried to the bar. I left wishing I had said "Hi". Maybe we can MeeT again?

No.7 Bus Driver

You used to drive the no. 7 bus that stopped at Adanac at 8.11am on the way to Nanaimo Station. I was the blonde woman who was always late and in too much of a rush to say hi but you brightened up my Monday mornings. One morning you'd disappeared and my Mondays haven't been the same since.

Costco Downtown - You remarked that I only had one item

I was carrying a tub of feta cheese. You said you were impressed that I only had one item. Actually, my cart was parked elsewhere, but more to the point, I missed the opportunity to take your opening. I kicked myself afterwards.

Starbucks / City Hall Skytrain "Meet Cute" encounter

I was leaving the City Hall Skytrain station. You were walking in and I turned around and smiled and waved, thinking I knew you. I walked across the street into the Starbucks at Cambie and Broadway…you followed me and came and sat across from me in the Starbucks. YOU: Have a wonderful smile, work for an electrical company (Mott Electric), have dark hair and great style. ME: Short with brown hair and work for a Project Management company – we figured out our companies have worked together quite a bit. You said my smile made your day and took my number to schedule a real coffee date. I haven’t heard from you and am worried that you wrote down my number wrong OR think I gave you a fake number (not the case) . A “meet cute” is rare and I want to take you up on that coffee!

meet cute between two-cent tattooed lady and cheesy pin clad man @ the Belmont

Me and a friend decided to go to the Belmont for Saint Patricks day last minute and I'm so glad we did! I remember seeing you and thinking you were quite a handsome fella. You teased me about my tacky stick on tattoos but I liked it. Although your "kiss me I'm irish" pin you were wearing was a bit cliche, i thought it was cute and it served its purpose well! haha… I told you my name was Hannah and you told me yours was Taylor before you disappeared. Had a blast dancing with you, you seem like a pretty cool guy. I've never tried this before but I can't get you out of my head, so I thought I'd give it a shot! I know you're out there somewhere… Find me! xx

Purple pants at the Canada Seven's Rugby tournament

We had an empty seat between us. You were with your friends, you had purple pants on and a Hawaiian themed shirt. I offered you peanuts and liquorice. I liked your smile but I have never asked a guy out or given him my number so I didn't know how, but wish I had tried. If you are interested too?

You: in a black t-shirt and green plaid shorts, wearing a sweet, disarming smile. Me: the short-hair gal in a pink tank top and grey shorts who commented on your impressive balance after seeing you stand on the exercise ball doing exercises with the heavy basketball.

Wicked Game

Our eyes caught a few times, the last time as you crammed into a cab with all your friends,some Sunday a few months back. You were wearing a red shirt I think. I can't remember what I sang, probably Heart. Keep thinking about you. You're kind of scruffy, it's just right. You sang Wicked Game, it was dreamy.

Tall, dark and handsome Lululemon Dt QT

To the tall, dark haired guy working at the checkout counter at the Lululemon downtown today (Saturday), you are super handsome! Great eyebrows and a sweet smile. We locked eyes a few times as I was strolling through the store - I had a brown leather bag, dark grey coat, and long, dark brown hair. I think that you were wearing plaid? Just thought that someone should tell you that you're very attractive and seem like a good person, too :)

Winking and Driving

Your navy coloured vehicle's license plate started DXO and you kept pace with me along the Kingsway for something like 20 blocks. All the while flirting, smiling and waving at every red light. At one point you motioned for me to join you at the roadside. I had to get to work, and did not. What if?
