Flirtatious Optician

My parents were in town and my mom wanted me to give her an opinion on some glasses she liked. You were the optician helping her out, and I asked you if you could adjust my glasses while my mother deliberated. We kind of flirted in front of my parents, when you found out I live in the city you asked for my info for the "mailing list," before asking me what I was into. All I could come up with was the fact I speak German. Maybe you were just trying to get a new customer, but I thought you were cute. And you really know your stuff, my glasses fit much better now ;)

Stranger Things

Just as our rapport soared into a suspenseful crescendo, I disappeared into a dark dimension that may as well have been devised by the Duffer brothers. Today, firmly rightside-up, I sipped a chai latte at the café to which we both belonged, and recalled how your quiet energy seemed to soften the minimalist edges of the room. Sometimes stories happen in a disorderly fashion - is it possible that we will find ourselves reunited in a narrative arc? Doubtful, but I suppose stranger things have happened.

Brunette Hipster on the 99-Bline, Arbutus and Broadway

Thanks again. I think I'm supposed to write some witty romantic blurb here. You were wearing a black five panel hat and had long-ish brown hair. If you do read this, message me something that confirms it's you.

Rainy day bus ride up Main St

It was a rainy, crappy day on a stuffed bus and you smiled at me when I saw you. Honestly, that never happens. I feel invisible most of the time in this city. I was super cranky, huddled up in a scarf, having a bad day. So thanks, I needed that. You: cute, blue eyes, dark hair, friendly energy. Keep being friendly!

Charlatan, Commercial Drive October 15th

I was wearing a Big Bear California baseball hat, blonde hair, blues eyes, denim jacket. I was sitting with my girlfriend in the corner by the door. You were sitting at the end of the bar with a friend. I thought you were going to come and say hello. We kept stealing looks at each other. I kept getting caught looking at you, I'd smile & look away. The rest of our party arrived, your friend left & then you left. I hope you see this & say Hello.

Dear John

We were lined up along the brick wall near the front of the coat check line at the end of the night. You caught me looking at you (twice), we smiled at each other, and you asked me how I was doing. I was speechless. We introduced ourselves but didn't get much further than that. The crowd was a little overwhelming. I must say, you are very attractive and have a really comfy energy. I was so floored by you, I froze. I left with my jacket, but regrettably not with your number. I think your name was John?

I Mother Earth concert

We were talking about how we listened to the band 20 years ago. You were in Ontario at the time. You accidentally gave the bartender your debit card instead of credit. You are handsome! I have brown hair and was wearing a black tank and black jeans. I wish I had stayed longer to chat.

Buddy at Budgies

You're from Montreal and wore an Expos hat...well. Our chat was brief but somehow delightful. Might have been that smile of yours that stayed with me. Either way, decided I'd rather reach out than let it drift away down main street like a tired trend. Hope you enjoyed your dinner. Neighbourhood drink some time?

False Creek Jogger

You were jogging this morning down the path beside the dog park going towards the False Creek seawall. It was raining. You touched the seawall with your foot, turned, gave me a great smile and a "good morning" and ran back up the path. You had on a ball cap and wear trimmed facial hair. I was walking on the seawall wearing a khaki coloured raincoat and shiny red rain boots. You were such a nice surprise and your smile shone in the rain. I hope you had a good run. Hope even more that we cross paths again...

At Bimini's

We danced for a hot second on Friday night at Bim's. You: tall, tattooed arms, black nike hat that you were wearing backwards. I was the girl in the grey skirt, black top, black boots & curled hair. You told me your name but I couldn't hear over the music. You're probably taken...but on the off chance you're not, hit me up? Drinks? :)

Cute Button Boy

I was working on main and 6th and you came in with a bearded buddy to bye a snack. You (somewhat nervously?) made conversation about your buttons from HotArt, I thought you were cute. You sat around with your friend for a while and waved goodbye when you left. Maybe I'm crazy or maybe you would want to grab a drink?

When: Saturday, October, 01 2016

Where: Main & 6th


You look like a sexier Johnny Depp/Javier Bardem. I said "thanks" for holding the door and you slyly replied "no problem, it's actually automatic". I wanted to keep the conversation going but I was mortified cause I should not have been in public cause I was essentially naked under my coat. Long story, hopefully we can chat about it over your bag of cheese buns.

Joel at Eastside Flea

We chatted about lighthouse labs and the Yukon. Like a true Darbyshire gentleman, you gave me your number but you must have mistyped it, because it led to a text from someone named Yoko ?? My reply was 'O no'. Hope you see this, would love to go for a coffee.

8:45pm 502 bus heading Langley way.

You were wearing a big cozy looking, blue sweater, you have your bridge pierced and you were sitting in the far back corner of the 502 headed towards Langley around 8:45-9pm. I was the girl wearing all black and grey drawing in front of you. You were getting off the bus when we made eye contact and then you gave me a silly face as you walked away. I thought you were cute and it would be cool to actually meet, if you ever find this that is. I really should have said hello!
