Midnight Angry Man

You were the angry-looking man who said, “It must suck to have such an empty life,” to me when we crossed paths in my neighbourhood. I was the girl deliberating on whether or not to engage, whether or not to say hello. Here it is: Hi.

Young Optimus Prime

Your voice cut through my Skrillex tape as soon as you came on at Royal Oak station. You were wearing an Optimus Prime shirt and had hair like a newborn baby duck. Are you into JRFM hip hop? Although you look a bit younger, I don't mind. Can I be your chaperone?

Were those roses for me?

You were standing at the entrance to Vancouver City Centre station with a few single-stemmed roses in both hands. Was this a pre-Valentine's Day stunt? Are we women supposed to approach you to ask about them? Were you selling them? I don't know what your deal is, but I commend you for your quirkiness.

Commercial Street Eye-Lock

We walked past each other on the Drive just after Grandview Highway. You were the tall blonde bearded man (gave off the Lumber-sexual vibe, but I don't think you were wearing plaid). I can't remember what you were wearing because I just kept staring at your eyes. I was the 5'10 brunette in a royal blue wool coat and grey knit circle scarf. Coffee?

Outside MEC on a rainy morning

You were waiting outside MEC before it opened, both of us a bit wet from biking in the rain. I should have stayed to continue chatting! Feel free to write if you felt similarly. And I hope you get some fenders for your nice bike.

Scotiabank Theatre - solo date night with self

Colin, we are basically the same person, as you said. I wished I had come straight over to you after the film was done to ask what you thought hoping we once again had something in common. Can we run into one another again? I'd consider giving up my seat in the back next time and turn it into an actual 'date'

Driving the 402 Bus

Elevator in the Marine Building

I was the girl with the red lips, and the red coat at the crosswalk. We made eye contact. We proceeded to not only go in to the same building, but the same elevator. There was such good tension. You told me to have a nice day before getting off. I could have sworn I was in a movie. Thanks for that.

Just around the corner - Cambie & Bdwy on the #17

You came on the bus @ Cambie & 7th, I left at the next stop. In the time in between we exchanged quite a few glances - you have a great goatee, amazing clear eyes & were wearing a black toque & black ski jacket, carrying 2 bags (& tapping your right hand a bit). Me - long black wool coat, short salt & pepper hair & black framed glasses. Felt some electricity each time I was brave enough to look into your eyes and smiled shyly at you as I left the bus. If you felt something too - how about a longer bus ride together soon to get acquainted more?

Cute tall guy at the Red Room for Marten Horger

I was quite tipsy and my friend was the gate keeper to protect me from creepos trying to dance with me. She let you through because you were tall and handsome. We danced and I left with my friend. We later bumped into you on the street while grabbing a cab and you were munching on a slice of pizza. I was ushered in the cab without a chance to give you my number. Would love to have another dance party.

Connection @ Safeway

We caught each others eyes as you were headed into the Commercial and Broadway Safeway and I was leaving the parking lot. I definitely felt you see me. You were wearing all black like me, I had my camera strapped around my neck and my hair in a pony tail. As I looked back at you I could see your head turning back as we just missed our second glance. Sometimes, I wish I wasn't so shy...

84 @ Alma

I see you waiting for the 84 @ Alma in the morning every few weeks, and after another run in this morning I've decided to put this out into the universe. You're rugged, handsome, sport a beard and today you were wearing a black toque. While you've never thrown any overt interest my way, you always do seem at least aware of me, a tall brunette wearing a green coat. Today you sat directly in front of me and I wished the whole ride that I had the nerve to strike up a conversation... Here's hoping next time one of us will.

Reading 'Room' on the Canada Line

Admittedly, it was a little weird of me to overlook your shoulder and even more bizarre that I recognized that you were reading 'Room' on your Kindle. I really quite enjoyed talking to you for that one stop, even better that you appeared like a friendly, sincere person. Regardless I can't help shake the feeling that I should post this, it's my first time, and hopefully you will see it and respond. Skill testing question: What was the name of the last book that I told you I read, and I can tell you the colour of your Kindle cover.

Flight from Edmonton to Vancouver

YOU: 5'10 ish, blond hair, with a backpack, blue t-shirt and kakis pants. You were with your daughter and was sitting in the back of the airplane. In Van, We were both in the elevator to the Canada Line, but I was caught up in a discussion with my friends. I was hopeful to be able to talk to you once we would get off... but you took the escalators back to the Departures level. ME: The blond that was looking at you.

Embarking on a Journey

You are handsome, blonde, and creative. I am a gregarious brunette that you seemed to enjoy speaking to! This may be a long shot, but you came into my work and treated your friends to dinner. As you put it, you were about to embark on an emotional journey with them...creating something together. I would love for you to show me the final product!

You had me at man bun..

I know this is a long shot..but I saw you on the 5:45 seabus headed downtown from the quay last Wednesday evening. You were tall, handsome, wearing a suit, and had your hair pulled back. I sat one row ahead of you, but I wish I would have said something. When we got off the seabus, you headed to the sky train and I was headed downtown. I missed my chance. Taking a risk you may read this.

JJ Bean Yaletown

Let's see if this works ... You were adorable helping to watch another coffee goer's dog out on the patio. I was sitting inside giggling along with you at the silly pup now in your lap. And then your friends whisked you away while I sat slapping myself for being too shy to give you my number in the moment. dangit.
