Mayne Stage

We bumped elbows at Bent Knee, I shared my scotch while the bassist shot lasers at your heart. Would like to bump into you again.

Where: Campbell Bay

Scotia bank theatre

We both sat on those the front rows in the movies that nobody ever seats on. You came to see the x-men movie alone and you had an M&M bag and I was at the movies with a friend and I had a pop corn bag. I asked you of you wanted some of my pop corn and we eventually ended up swapping snacks. I really wanted to ask you for your number, but I got shy and nervous and never got the chance to. I hope you see this.

14th & Granville food store!

Though it is the only grocery store in the neighborhood. I make a point of going in everyday you are working while trying to look my best in hopes we can get past "how are you?" I think you are an adorable young man & would relish some hang time & progressive conversation. Coffee date? Just ask! <3

To the handsome fellow working at the Starbucks

I saw you while getting a morning coffee at Starbucks on Jervis and Robson. You had headphones in and were diligently working away on your laptop. I think you were wearing a grey shirt and jeans. I was sitting there in a navy striped shirt and blue jeans trying not to stare at you like an idiot. Want to share a coffee (or a proper drink) with me?

You came to talk to me then ran away

I was walking down Burrard yesterday at 1 pm and you walked passed me with your friend. You then ran up to me and started to talk to me but then got flustered and ran away. I didn't even get a chance to say anything and would be interested in what you had to say!

When: Sunday, June, 26 2016

Where: Burrard Street


You work at a certain fast food joint and I've only seen you there late at night. Sometimes after the bar sometimes not. We've talked many times. On the bus once or twice too. Quite sure your name starts with the letter A. I've been waiting for the next time I run into you but it never happens. Let me know who I am

You & I

To the babe at the Local Natives concert. I noticed you right away, you stood out in the crowd with your dark hair, I really loved your tshirt. I was the brunette dancing with my group of friends. I may not have known all the lyrics but I sure wish I could have danced with you. When did our love grow cold?

Quick glances at Revolver

I had just picked up my coffee from the counter at Revolver when you walked in with your friend (I think?). You're tall, have dark hair, dark rimmed glasses and wearing an unbuttoned shirt over a t-shirt. We instantly made eye contact and there was something really easy about it. I was in a striped dress and walked past you and your friend when leaving. I immediately turned around when out on the sidewalk in front of the coffee shop, and you were standing in the doorstep just smiling calmly. I'm an idiot and didn't start a conversation since I was with some friends. Geez, maybe I'll get another shot here?! *pun intended*

I was running, you were biking with a guitar

Hillcrest rec centre crossing on to Ontario bike path. We shared a smile and continued on. You were biking with a guitar on your back and I was running. I tried to keep up, but I'm not a very good runner ;) You turned back a few times and smiled. I should have taken out my ear phones before you turned off somewhere before 16th. Try again sometime?

Packing some meat

I was in line to order smoked pork when you entered to buy meat (sausage to be exact :P) for a BBQ you said you were having that same day. I liked your smile and thought you were really cute. I was the girl standing behind you in the red dress. Hope you see this and we can get together for some other meats!

Construction Guy @ Waterfront

I see you a couple of times a week down at Waterfront. You: tall dark and handsome in construction clothes with hair in a pony tail. Problem is your usually with a girl with glasses and a hat. We've exchanged glances before and smiles. Me: long brown hair and in my office attire. Sure would love to talk to you and more. Take a chance :)

Enjoying Sonic Freak-outs at Levitation

You have long dark hair, are super tall and had a Metallica shirt on the first day. I have blue hair and was a sweaty mess but having the best time. Everywhere I went I ended up dancing beside you. Thank you for picking me up when I fell during FIDLAR. You're a babe and I wish I'd got your name.

Travis at Columbia Station

This is a long shot, but you helped me find my way to the Columbia Station in March - I was on my way to the DVC shooting range, and you were going downtown with some friends. Our conversation was light and fun, but I wanted more. I have bright red hair and was sporting a giant brown purse. We shook hands when you went into the station - I wish I could have gotten your number!

Home Depot Double-Take

We were at Home Depot (Cambie Street) and crossed paths on the main store alley while you were walking with your friend. I was in a grey blazer, short hair, jean shorts, hunting for a staple gun. You were in a ball cap, grey tshirt, blondish beard and did a double-take when I smiled. We almost ran into each other again in the same alley a bit later when I turned back too quickly to get an item. Tried to find you afterwards but you must have gone through the cashier already. If you read this, send me a message and let me know what you were buying!

WEST 4th Double Take

Me, tall, dark, slightly messy hair, on a bike, black hoodie, middle aged. You, seated outside Starbucks in the limited sun. Long curious mutual stare, do I know you (no BS)? You felt so familiar that I rode back to get a better gander and see if you were that person from my past that I thought you might be. None the less the stare was somehow probing and intimate without being a creepy. I pondered it all the way along the seawall. Life is a short bike ride, with many different detours. If you are who I think you are I would love to talk to you, if you are not that individual I think I would still want to talk to you.

You naughty boy!! Remember last weekend my girlfriend and I stayed late and you made out with us in the basement? I was the one in the red dress that got up on your tool bench. I couldn't believe IT (you know what I mean). The Furies are playing on Saturday and they're my favorite. We'll be coming down again to SBC cause we always have so much fun there. Cant wait to see you again. You should fetch a cab for us after and ditch everyone. Come on over we'll show you what's in our basement!!

Saturday night wrap up party at Earls YaleTown

We were both the plus one at a wrap up party at Earls YaleTown Saturday night. You work in the film industry I don't. We shared some guesses about the plastic horse and discussed which flavored bell pepper was better. You decided the orange one -but it was a carrot. I haven't laughed like that in a long time, I should have offered up my number. Perhaps if you up for it we could take a stroll around Stanley Park or have a bevy ?

Double Takes for the Double Espresso

I just got back into town and therefore, was consumed by happiness and nostalgia when I walked determinedly into the cafe. You were a tall young man with piercing blue eyes, red New Balance Runners, and a cozy beard. Our eyes were playing Cat and Mouse except neither of us would let the other catch our shy glances at one another. I was the tall girl with the striped shirt, the high pony tail, and a copious amounts of yellow legal pads. You walked out and right away I knew I should have said something. After years of living in this wonderful city, I have never done one of these but I warrant you to be very worthy. You have good taste in coffee shops—let's each grab a double espresso next time.

Knight on the 20

You were my knight in shining armour on my way to the Wise from the DTES enroute to your 'party' at the Legion. And I didn't even get your name! I owe you a drink

cute boxing guy

I've seen you two or three times at boxing but it's so rare that I don't want to simply wait until we potentially cross paths again. We boxed together last week, you have a tattoo on each shoulder, you were really impressed that I remembered your name from the time before, and we had a good energy. Maybe it's just the inherent intensity of boxing that created a sense of chemistry, but I hope otherwise. Would love to get to know you better.

skytrain commercial to burrard

I saw you as I was getting on at commercial and we ended up in the same car. I was sitting facing the window and you sat right beside me - facing me. I felt the energy and was hoping you'd say something - but I had my head phones in so I understand that you didn't. You were cute - and I was the blonde in the black blazer - let's talk?

Stolen Glances at The Emerald

You, looking like a dashing Chris Martin, were sitting at a booth with some friends at the back. I, with short pixie blonde hair, was sitting opposite you against the wall with my friend. It might have been my imagination, but we kept making eye contact and I thought to myself, "well, that person is a babe." After only 1 glass of red wine I didn't pluck up enough courage to go and talk to you and my pal wanted to leave. Hopefully you felt the same and that I make eye contact from across the room with you again in the future.

Punk rock cutie

I bumped into you on the stairs and we hugged tightly. Then you held me as we swayed back and forth to the band. We got pretty wasted and went home together. I woke up alone. Where did you go? You are the cutest boy in the world. I hope you come and find me!!
