B & B Contracting guy

Saw you on the 22 bus around 1:45pm today. You were wearing a B & B Contracting sweater and had nice blue eyes. I have shoulder length brown hair and was wearing a royal blue shirt and grey skirt. You smiled when I got on the bus at Broadway and we kept looking over at each other, smiling. You made my day! I got off at Cornwall & Balsam, but maybe I'll see you again?

Passing Smiles & Playful Glances Outside the Central Branch Library

We were both crossing the street outside the library, walking towards each other (you on the library side). I was hurrying to get across the street and we exchanged big smiles as I hurried past you. I kept walking, but looked back over my shoulder once on the library side and noticed you looked back at me too. I kept looking back over my shoulder once we were both on opposite sides of the street and noticed you kept looking back at me smiling. We playfully did this about 3-4 times. I have long brown hair, was wearing red pants, a black jacket and burgundy toque. I remember you had dark hair and a black jacket (I think). Anyway, this playful exchange kept me grinning for the rest of the day. I'm a hopeless romantic, and this is a long shot, but I'm kind of hoping you read the Georgia Straight!

Sat. 6pm, Commercial Drive, Falconetti's or Cannibal Cafe

We used to pass by one another on Commercial Drive (between Broadway and 3rd, walking on the East side of the street, you going North, me South towards the train) most mornings around 8am, back in January. We'd nod and sometimes smile... and then my schedule changed. I'm guessing you work somewhere on the Drive. You have dark hair, warm eyes, wear black shirts, a hat, and you walk fast. Once I saw you with a friend of mine - you and I acknowledged one another but didn't talk, and he made a comment about my dress. I saw you today as I was going home, around 6pm - at least I think that was you. You were either at Falconetti's or Cannibal Cafe, sitting at the bar, corner seat, talking to someone. I've been wondering who you are and where to find you...

Red Toque and Blonde on the 99 Bae-Line @ 11:30am

We were on the B-Line this morning. When the sunlight flashed through the windows and hit your eyes, they shone green and blue. Someone called you. You took out your cell, answered with a voice-cracky "Hello?" (hastily clearing your throat afterwards). I tried not to look at you, but I'm grateful for the I thrilling two seconds of eye contact we made. I was wearing sports leggings, runners, and a backpack. I hurried off at the Cambie stop, and I felt you behind me for a brief bit. Why didn't I say hi? I guess I'll try to ride the 99 Bae-Line on Friday mornings in hopes of running into you again.

Tuesday night @ Alibi Room

I love the Alibi Room! You sat at the next table and we had no interaction but you caught my eye- you had black glasses on, great smile and ate mussels. You were in a party of three - i was hoping you wee their wheeling but it was hard to tell! Next time, you, me, beer, mussels!

You're still tanned!

You came into the supplement/health food store where I work looking for something to help your cold. I helped you with a product recommendation. You seemed really nice & cute, and I'd love to hear more about your recent trip!

You were walking your dog this morning in Grays park.

Hello! You have an adorable black dog and I stopped you to say hello to it. You have a fantastic smile and it was a really great way to start my morning. I would've chatted you up but I was in a rush to catch my bus. I saw you look back! I would totally go out for coffee with you. Are you single?

Climbing in Squamish

I think your name is Steven? Saw you climbing at Octopus Garden with a girl I was acquainted with. We talked briefly... I have long dark hair and we were wearing the same sportivas. You gave me beta on a mossy route. Anyway, I wasn't sure if you were on a date with that person, or if you're dating anybody at all. But you seem pretty mellow and I like that. Maybe I'll hear from you?

Cute guy who helped me mount my bike on the front of a #22 bus.

Friday night around 6:30 pm I was struggling to get my bike up on the bike rack of a bus. This was on Hastings street in front of the Harbour Centre building. You stepped out of the line you were waiting in to come to my rescue. I mentioned that I had never done this before and you said something about how the bike clamps often get sticky. The you smoothly hoisted my bike up on the rack. You smiled at me as I got on the bus. I was humbled by your kindness. I'd love to meet up with you on purpose and thank you for saving me from the bus driver's glare.

consistently rushing past you

I see you, consistently, at the oddest hour walking north down Templeton street. Who are you? Why are you awake at the early hour of work a day people and where could you be going when you're walking away from all the bus stops? What kind of cigarettes do you smoke? Is your beard soft? Can I find out? What does your voice sound like? Have you noticed a creepy stranger cultivating a mystery around you for over a year now? How does it feel to be so effortlessly alluring? By now I would have said hello, and asked all the above questions your curious presence inspires in me, but I'm always in rush to work mode when I pass you, maybe this digital nudge will coax you out at a more chatty time of day.

But you don't have an accent?

I see you almost every day. Sometimes I avoid you because I become so flustered, you melt me like butter. Your smile is perfect and I just want to Get to know you better....amongst other things. Sometimes I wish we didn't work together. But you do make Monday's better. I'll continue my sordid love affair with you in my mind. Maybe one day you'll ask me out.

Your nose was red from the cold but you had somewhere to be.

Tall, dark, and brilliantly handsome. I saw you standing on the platform of Production Way/University, waiting for the Millenium Line. I could't take my eyes off of you. You were holding a box of Daniels chocolate, wearing a charcoal peacoat and jeans with black laced brogues. I was standing a few feet away: Asian, short, brown curly hair in a leather jacket and headphones, trying not to be too obvious. I suspect the chocolates were for that someone special in your life. The train was late so I hope you made it to them on time.

Navy New York Yankee hat on a rainy Monday afternoon @ 49th Parallel on Main Street

It was the middle of the day on a Monday and it was extremely rainy outside. I am the brunette that was at the end of the long table in forty ninth parallel on Main Street sitting on my own after a friend had left. Working on my computer. You came in and sat on your own at then end of long table facing out the window. I'm pretty sure you were wearing all black, a navy New York yankees hat and large black headphones while you worked on your computer. I noticed you as soon as you walked in and thought you were really handsome, but, for some reason I was too shy to make eye contact...I think you noticed me as well. I kicked myself that I did not try harder to get your attention. I know this is kinda creepy but I normally work on Mondays so the chances of us being in the same place same time are slim. So here goes! Want to grab a coffee sometime?

Handsome athletic type

I was in line behind you in Nestor's at Hastings and Abbot tonight 630/7pm. You bought a bunch of healthy items including organic kale and eggs, and were dressed in black athletic wear (north face jacket). You gave a phone number that brought up a female name... girlfriend? Single? Hopefully. Sigh. What a babe...

Paradise in the paint department

Your name was Alex (at least that's what your apron said, but I couldn't be sure because it looked like it was written by a 4 year old), you made me a bunch of weird paint colours and suggested I burn my heritage home down. I like your nose ring and the fact that you don't like Madonna. PS. My room looks awesome and I'm still looking for things to paint copper.

Diamond in the rough

At first you walked past me as we made eye contact, you were a bit shorter rhan me tattooed and pierced (sexy beared to boot) we were both out of our elements to say the least. You had been at a mining camp for the past few months and needed to break the sausage fest. You showed me your work while your passed out aussie roommate snored next to kitty poo , then later slipped into a steamy scrub down and ignored a Russian documentary by vice magazine. You finished off what felt more like a reunion of old friends than a business transaction with a private fashion show . If you don't know who I am still by now does a UNICORN ONESIE ring a bell. I lost your number. And no I am not obsessed or looking for you to be my boyfriend. Your just too cool to never talk to again. Coffee or drinks ? No charge this time . Ibviiu

I seen you at BK, I was with two loud friends and you were with a friend sitting across from us. You had bike tires in hand when you left. I was hungover and looked like trash so I didn't approach you. You were very handsome and interesting looking. If your single lets chill, I'd like to see what your about... And I sware I clean up 100% better!!!

Cambie and Cordova-ish

You were in a hat and on the phone, I was hoofing it down cambie with my headphones in-- but when we made eye contact your gaze left a mark on my subconscious. I probably won't stop thinking about you until I run into you in Gastown again, this time with the courage to say hi.

Suffragette seeking Hatted Gentleman in New West

On election night we crossed paths at a skytrain station - you were dashing in your coat and hat, and wanted to know why I was dressed as a suffragette... I remain impressed you recognized me as a suffragette, and am wondering if you'd like to step out in style for a coffee?
