I want my newspaper back

You: dark haired, beardy hipster. Me: heavy-set woman, sitting at a window table with my two (female) friends. You loomed over our table ominously, saying nothing until one of my friends finally acknowledged you. "Can I borrow that for a minute?" you asked, gesturing vaguely at my (free) newspaper. "Sure, go for it." By the time I left the cafe an hour later, you were gone - And so was my newspaper. What did you want with my newspaper? Why couldn't you get your own? If you never give something back, is it really borrowing? I want my newspaper back. And I want answers.

Coffee Cutie

I've seen you in here a few times, the tall guy with short dark hair and a sexy accent (Australian, maybe?). You like to sit near the window, and I wanted to smile up at you when I walked past you on the sidewalk, but I got too shy. Today, I was the blonde in the white tank top and blue skirt. You were wearing a blue shirt and grey pants. Maybe we could share a coffee sometime?

Portside Red Bull Partyy

You were the cutie in a red t-shirt and black hat at the other end of the table. We locked eyes a few time but I couldn't woman up and come over to you. I was the dirty blonde in all black/tan with her two guy pals. Sincerely, The shy one.

Saw you on 8th Ave bike route

I was riding my bike on 8th ave headed east and you were headed west on your skateboard (maybe longboard?) between balsam and vine. We locked eyes and I regret not ringing my bell at you, but I was in a rush to get to work. Let's go for a ride together?

My crush in the skytrain

Yesterday around 12:45 pm. I got on the skytrain at 29 Avenue Station and I sat next to a very handsome guy. He was tall and with tattoos in both of his wrists, he looks white and had his long brown hair tied in the back of his head. He left the skytrain at the Stadium-Chinatown Station and I regret not having say hello to him because he looked like a very nice person. If you are reading this, please contact me. Would be great to meet you!

Canada Line Cutie

I ran onto the Canada Line at the Yaletown Station around 5PM today. I was looking for a place to hold on to when I notice you smiling at me. You looked Asian or mixed, and was wearing a black graphic T-shirt with shorts and a backpack. I was wearing a white top and a pair of cat-eye glasses. We exchanged a few smiles and glances. You got off at King Edward Station. I should have gone over and said hi. I would love to grab a drink with you. Message me :)

dog intervention

If it weren't for you I probably would have hit that dog as I was turning in. You stopped my car AND my heart. (just kidding! that's cheesy!) I would have said hey but I had a post morning-yoga "glow" thing happening. #glowing #flawless

Genuine smiles @ Browns SocialHouse

Here goes nothing. You came in with both your parents, and greeted me with the warmest genuine smile. Myself, was working and sat you to your table where you sat outside on the patio. I opened the door to allow you to walk first but instead you smiled at me again, asked how I was, and allowed me to go first. I tried to catch you on your way out from the bathroom but was too nervous to say anything, I regret it now. I would love to get to know you more. Your smile and presence made my evening. You had a grey long sleeve if I recall, jeans, and a navy blue baseball hat. I was wearing a black dress with an open back, I have dark hair, tanned skin, & brown eyes. Oh, I asked to light your tables candle and you responded with uplifting the mood, which then I laughed. Hope to hear from you, total shot in the dark.

Deep Space Crush

Without fail you wear your NASA hat, and I have yet to learn your name. I don't know if you're flirting with me or not, but I love it when you ramble. In another world I would ask, so we could sit on your porch and listen to Coast to Coast. Until then I'll stay thirsty.

I was at the McDonalds with a friend ordering food and you were with two of your buddies at Starbucks. I kept checking you out and you finally glanced over and we made eye contact I wanted to say hi but I didn't know how. My friend went to go get coke so I carried the tray and went to go find a seat I didn't wanna seem like a creep so I avoided eye contact and your were messingly scribbling something down on a napkin. I think you took it as I wasn't interested and left when I actually wanted you to come up to me and start a conversation. I wore a white romper with red roses on it.

A tall blond security at Urban Winery Thursday night

Never done this before, but here we go! You were ushering people in to the exhibition. You smiled and said hello as you greeted me. I was limping and trying to walk with the cane and you asked people to clear the entrance. When I got out you were gone. You have a beautiful and kind smile. It made me feel warm and fuzzy :) With a nice smile like that you must be a really nice person. I don't know, may be, hopefully? If you are, I would like to get acquainted and be friends. Not looking for a romance, at least not at present, but if you are, I may not object too terribly :)

VFMF atm

We were in the long, slow atm line at the folk fest. We exchanged some words - you saying how you really needed the lemonade, and me the ice cream. You were at folk fest to see your friends who were in one of the groups. I later saw you walking with a friend while I was in the middle of a conversation. You seemed cool and I'd love to chat more. You: darker, long, wavy hair. Me: brown hair.

We talked in the coffee line at Langara

"R" - You started the conversation by commenting on a Natalie Imbruglia song, and then you bought my coffee for me. I wanted to keep talking but I had to dash off. I like meeting new people... Maybe we could talk again sometime! Sincerely, "M"

English Bay, I was in workout clothes on a Thursday evening

I saw you, a spunky tall man, walk past me in English Bay at Davie and Bidwell (outside the JJ Bean) on a Thursday evening (July 16th). I was wearing workout clothes, a hat and sunglasses (dark hair in a ponytail). You were heading towards English Bay. You smiled, I smiled, we both looked back as we passed, but neither of us said 'hi'. This is a long shot, but I thought it was worth a try! Let me know if you want to catch up...

Got you out at 2nd, brew jay!

We were playing softball against each other. I was playing 2nd base, you were running from 1st to 2nd on a grounder to 3rd. I caught the ball and fell on my back in the dust. When I looked up at you, I said something like "I think you're out?" I wished I had asked you out instead! If you want to discuss getting to 2nd base over brews, get in touch!

You Deadlift

We met at the escalator going up to the gym. I stood there and told you to go first, you said "Ladies first!" We hesitated then you went. You asked me why and explained my leg day aftermath. You chuckled and then asked me if they have a deadlift platform. I told you they only had the floor. You went to fitness2000, yesterday was your second day at goodlife. You said your name was Callum. I'm there almost everyday at the same time. Protein shakes sometime?

Madison, at the Ice Cream Social

You came home with me after meeting at the Ice Cream Social at the Biltmore. You had come from work with your friends for one of their birthdays. When you left my place and I asked if I would ever see you again you said maybe - I regret not emphasizing that seeing you again is something that I would like very much. I honestly have had you on my mind quite a lot, but, of course, have no way of finding you. Please get in touch if you are interested in meeting up again.

Canadian songs for Pride: "Rise Up" by...

While many tend to think of the Pride parade as a celebratory party, it is far more than that.
