Electrician fixing Cardero St. power line

You were in a crew of three, wearing a beige khaki shirt, dark beard, dark pants and a green hard hat, to fix the snapped power line on Cardero St. between Nelson and Barclay from about 5:30 pm to 10:00 pm. I watched the repair from an open window near the trucks (fascinating!). You looked up a couple of times, I smiled back and later walked in front of your truck (jean shorts, scarf, dark green jacket and umbrella) while you were finishing up a call. Got a lovely smile from you that I’m having a hard time forgetting! I should have knocked on your window to say hi and a big thank you for the hard work so here it is! If you see this, I'd love to treat you to a beer as an actual thanks! Please high five your team for me too. :)

Blood Donor Clinic

You: tall, dark t-shirt & shorts. Me: long hair, tattoos, t-shirt, sitting at the snack table behind with a couple of people. I noticed you had a 1st time donor sticker on and you weren't with anyone. I tried to sneak a couple peeks at you cuz I thought you were really handsome and I wanted to see how your first time went. Also I wanted to say Thank You for donating. What you did was really awesome and I hope your next time you are able to bring some friends with you. I don't know if this is something you would be but life's all about taking chances whatever the outcome might be

Aphex Twin on the Number 3

You were sitting in the back talking to an older man about electronic music, i was sitting alone waiting to get off at Hastings and Main. I heard you bring up Aphex Twin and had to automatically interrupt. We chatted about Richard and you told me you were from Victoria.

#8 Downtown bus

You: Tall, dark hair, got on my bus looking a little worse for wear, but still super cute. You had one arm in a sling, and the other was pulling a large black duffel bag. Me: Tall, cute bus driver with short, brown hair We talked about your injury, your daredevilery, the power of mind over matter, and my tight hammies, among other things. Wish I hadn't stumbled on my words when you got off the bus. Perhaps we could grab a coffee sometime?

You complimented me and made my day!

You: tall, dark hair, beautiful eyes. Me: a redhead in a green jacket and faded ripped jeans. We made eye contact across separate checkouts and then you stopped me at the elevator to tell me I looked great. The unexpected compliment brightened my day. I wish I'd had time to say more than "thank you" before the elevator doors closed.

Super Dad at Safeway (but where was your cape?)

You: tall with red hair and juggling 2 little blond rug rats like a boss in the self check out. Me: brunette in line behind you who couldn't help grinning at your littlest munchkin. Totally in awe of your multitasking skills: even with your two helpers, a stroller AND groceries you still made it through the self check out before any of the others! I did notice the bread, but I'll never tell ;)

Bearded runner: I watched you stumble off a curb

I was riding my bike way to dance class, stopped at the light at 10th and Main: black cutoff tights, long red hair, sunglasses. I watched you running north on Main, beard and black shorts and tank. I thought you looked great, you looked at me, our eyes kind of locked, and then you missed the curb! Aw man. It was just a little stumble, but so cute and funny and classic. I should have smiled and asked if you were okay! I'd love to re-live that and laugh about it with you.

Nine Is Number One

More of a "I haven't seen you." Do the first time you took me to the moon and you were teaching me how to swear in the local dialect? After laughing for a few minutes you told me I didn't have enough tongues to say it properly. Then I showed you how well I get along with just one tongue. I've been looking for you, as much as I can down here, on my own: staying out too late, getting myself into trouble hoping you'll turn up but you never do. Good thing you taught me how to take care of myself. Honestly, I just miss you and I miss the way you see the world. I'll wake up from dreams of us playing naked tag, chasing each other through the endless rooms of the TARDIS, finding new uses for that sonic screwdriver ;) Do you ever think of me down here? I keep expecting you to be waiting for me when I get off work to whisk me away on another adventure: walking me down the diamond sand beach of a distant planet, your hand in the small of my back telling me worlds about fantastic things I'll never see. It can't all be chip shops and tea.

JJ Bean Morning Coffee Convo

We were in line for coffee this morning around 10am. I asked you if you worked in film because you were dressed nicely and your friend was covered in paint. We had a small conversation before my coffee was ready and as I was leaving you said bye to me and used my name. I left without asking your name but went back to leave my number with the barista for you in case you asked about me. Is that the JJ where you always take your breaks because I'd like to see you again...

5pm-ish,Friday, August 21st - Cypress Street, Vancouver

I was sitting/texting on the steps of a condo bldg (between York and 1st Ave), watching you put your gym bag? into your SUV. We chatted briefly, you popped into the store on the corner and came back to your car...and then I left walking. I waved, you waved back. I should have asked if you were single and interested in coffee - are you?

You caught me eating donuts out of the box!

You interrupted my snack time to tell me I make wearing glasses look good (or something to that effect). I laughed and said thank you but feel like maybe you thought I was laughing at you? I didn't mean it that way. You just caught me stuffing my face with my favorite treats and I didn't know how to react in a more cool way! Lol Thanks ♡

Backseat firefighter in Gastown

I was walking out of Blood Alley and you were in the backseat riding through gastown in your firetruck. I locked eyes with you as you slowly crept towards Cordova and abbott. I saw you poking your head out of the window and smiling until we couldn't see each other as I stood on the sidewalk. I'm blonde, and was wearing polka dots on my top and a black skirt. Lets go out and do something spontaneous.

We both jumped on the bus with our bikes at the same stop and I sat next to you. We probably have the same length hair although yours was up and mine was down.

We met at the Roxy on Sunday night. We danced, you spoke Spanish in my ear. My friends dragged me home before we could exchange phone numbers.

Like a dance movie.

We danced at the Roxy. You picked me up and we kissed, like a scene from Roadhouse or Dirty Dancing, or some other Patrick Swayze movie. Or any movie where the guy picks up the girl on the dance floor and they kiss. Yup, it was that good.

SVMF - Jeremy

We were both at the Kodiak camp ground. You approached my friend and I when we were in the line for the shuttle with our camping gear on Sunday morning and chatted with us for a few minutes, you were heading to the medical tent. I saw you later in the day, hanging out with your pals at your site, I was too shy to say anything to you the second time I saw you. I got good vibes from you when we were chatting and would like to see if the feeling was mutual.

Badass in a Nice Suit

My morning coffee ritual had a lovely something special when I saw you, a yummy-looking guy in a nice grey suit and a dark blue shirt. Your head is shaved, which makes you look like such a badass, but you had this really cute smile while you were playing with your phone. I hovered by the coffee station, trying to work up the nerve to approach you, but you were sitting next to two older ladies and a blonde girl, and I felt embarrassed. I don't know if you saw me, but I was the tall brunette in the sleeveless white top and black skirt. Hope to see you again, and hope you're single! Maybe we could share something stronger than coffee?

Open house in Fraserview SE Van

Cute Spanish guy at Squamish fest

I went to your booth to charge my phone on Sat. You told me you teach Spanish and live in Van and made some pretty stupid jokes that made my day. I think your name was Pablo. I´m the cute girl, blue eyes, brown hair, wearing a shirt with a monster on it. I know this is a long shot but if you read this maybe we could have coffee some time? ;)

YVR - Flight to Kelowna

I doubt you will read this but I figured why not. I just saw/met you as I was boarding my flight. You work for Westjet and you graciously printed me a boarding pass and referred to me as a trouble maker. Would have chatted more if I hadn't been holding up the line. You were cute and very helpful. Let's grab a drink!
