We have met in the line up for home around 5:00pm 601/311 Bay.

Cashier - Burrard Liquor Store

I was buying beer, you were cute. I was one of your last customers that night, your older coworker was already cashing out his till. I made a comment about not getting ID'd, you told me a story about your female friend who also has a baby face. I told you I play 14 on TV. You were blushing while talking to me. I wanted to ask you out, but your coworker was staring us down, so I left. I know this is a long shot/it was a couple weeks ago now, but... I'd love to go on a date with you!

Quiznos on Broadway

You were ordering sandwiches at the Bayswater & Broadway Quiznos (in Kits). You gave me a winning smile when i waltzed in and asked the sandwich maker to fill my water bottle. And a second smile as I left. You're white, brown shaved hair. I was wearing a blue men's business shirt and flowing badass leopard print pants. I considered asking for your number as I left but chickened out.

At 8th & Main store on Main Street

We passed each other on sidewalk and both turned around to view each other again. You young and handsome in shorts and T, me in white shorts and white top, longish blonde hair. I went in to store and you came around and walked past store window couple times looking for me. I waved and you came in and asked if I was married, I said no. I would like a total redo of what happened next. Don't know why I brushed you off, want to meet again and start over??

Small Moments Come Vivid

Passed by you on Carrall between Water and Cordova. I was walking north carrying a brown shopping bag wearing cut offs and white tshirt, tattoo sleeves. When we saw each other you didn't exactly do a double take- more like a head jerked back, eyes wide smile jam. Like you were surprised and like what you saw. As I passed you I looked away and grinned huge. And I swooned (who knew that was actually a thing?) and that certainly hasn't happened before. You looked a little bike-ish with a flipped up cap and clothes I don't remember. That physical reaction was somethin' else or maybe it was dehydration (Ha!) Let me buy you a beer and we can drink about it.

On Glasses, Mahogany Guitars and Banjolele

Thin White Duke Sighting @ The Rag

You came into the rag machine wearing almost all white and leather shoes. You parked your bike outside and had black sunglasses on. You asked me where my favorite spot was for thrifting and said you were into blondie-punk as well as ask me if I worked full time. You briefly mentioned the mod movement and told me you just cut your hair. I thought you were really cool but you left before I asked your name :((( come visit the rag machine again this week!!

Bass Coast Geo Dome Friday Night

You: Black framed glasses and hoodie, showed up at the white geodesic dome with your buddy at the camp I was at. You climbed up to the top hammock in the dome after your buddy refused to. Me: Tired girl in the hammock, asked if you were satisfied with your hammock achievement. I didn't mean to be rude, it was a long night of creepy men and I was having none of it by that point. But I admired your intelligence and felt bad about my not-so-welcoming demeanour the next day. I was hoping to run into you again; maybe I did, but I didn't get a chance to dance with you.

You have an amazing smile

I limped onto the 19 bus towards metrotown at Main and 2nd today. I put my bike on the front, I couldn't ride because I hurt my knee. I sat across from you at the front of the bus and we exchanged a few smiles during the ride. You had a smile to light up a room and I think we had a connection, even though we didn't speak. I hobbled off at Kingsway and Carolina. Send me a message and let's go for a drink ;)

Possibly French? Man with a Vancouver map on the bus looking for MEC

Forgive me for not saying hi, or asking if you needed directions somewhere, I was blown away by your smile and couldn't come up with the courage before my stop came. Me: Brunette female, Blue Jacket, black and white t-shirt, got on at Cornwall/4th You: Red shirt, amazing tan, and Vancouver map on your lap chatting briefly with an elderly lady. I'd love to show you around town if you need a tour guide, and I certainly know my way around MEC.

Young(er) guy bus driver sun. July 3 no6 rd-Cambie

You pulled away from the stop just as I approached. I asked you a question then said nevermind and started walking. You were about to drive away then stopped again and I got on the bus. Im usually not attracted to (other) blondes but something about you. It was a short bus ride,but I wish I DID STAY on the bus. I didnt realise till after i left that maybe you were flirting when you made that suggestion? Will you be friends with me? ??? (No if u have gf but pls let me know either way) Me- blonde hair in bun, really short and thin. Wearing grey cardigan, And dark jeans. I was having two car problems what were they? Or who else was on the bus ?etc. -please no replies from random people with strange requests, or if you think you can trick me/catfish. Im not stupid and will know in two seconds what youre up to. - I came back a week later same time to give you a pretty rose i picked.Then realised how many 410 ? busses there are back to back, (i m guessing at the bus #) and that your schedule might change week to week so I attached it to the sign post hoping you'd see, and not some caterpillar or angry commuter, and left. It was sort of a series of odd events/ decisions that made me end up there that day, so just wanted to put this out there, and hoping i dont sound like a psycho at the same time.

Blue Suit Jacket Dapper Dude on Commercial Drive

You were speaking to an older gentleman at the coffeeshop by 1st Ave and then you walked by me and headed to Norman's to pick out (a lot!) of long yellow/green peppers. I went by you and thought "What the hell" and walked up and said "I've seen you before and have to say you are the most dapper dressed man on the Drive." (big smile from me). You smiled and said "Yeah, I'm the only one wearing a suit jacket today." I squeezed your arm (my attempt at flirting) and laughed and said "Well, you look great." that that was it... sigh. You have this look about you that's so handsome to me... nice dark hair, good fashion sense, (nice shoes!), and an air of confidence that's not... slick. Anyway, you may have a significant other, tho, I've never seen you with anyone else, but I wish I would have said my name. I thought it was obvious my interest... and maybe you also noticed how obvious it was but are not feeling it. If by chance you are, and actually know this is you (you should because I'm being pretty specific), then email me! I would love to go for coffee and chat some more... about what the heck you did with all those peppers! ;)

Cute Single (?) Dad at Extreme AirPark

Our kids were attending parties at the same time, and we kept checking each other out, and joking about how we had to stop meeting all the time, or people would start to talk. You were wearing a green t-shirt, brown hair and a beard, you had a daughter. I was wearing yoga pants, a ponytail and a bike t-shirt. Am assuming you were single, if so, hit me up, and let's get together for coffee and talk about how hard it is to date as a single parent. ;-)

I want a Smilin Buddha Baby

It might be far fetched but I am ready for a baby! I am the tall blond that always comes and eye fucks the shit out of you almost at every show at SBC. Maybe a baby is pushing it as I do like to have a cocktail or two and that might put a damper on said events. Can you just acknowledge my existence (even tho your so nice to me it's always small talk and i want MORE) i know your working hard but don't work too hard!
