Crying together over Captain Fantastic

Hi...Many thanks for reaching out and offering me your hand when I was leaving. You beautifully surprised me and I enjoyed holding your hand tightly. I would have liked to stay and chat about what made us cry so much during the movie. I returned and looked for you, but you were gone...If you happen to see this, drop me an email. I would love to get together for coffee or a drink sometime. Thanks for showing your vulnerability and for daring to touch me. You were braver than me.

Studying for GMAT at Jericho

A Sunny Friday afternoon of the long weekend at Jericho beach. We started chatting about how great it is to study at the beach, because, like you, that is where I studied when I did my nursing degree. I was there with a friend and we went swimming and then left. I thought you were really cute and I wish I had asked for your name and number. If you need a break from studying, let's grab a drink!

Late night banter with J on 84 to and from UBC!

I was silly goof and never asked if we could trade info to hangout! I had lots of fun talking to you tonight. As we said Vancouver isn't the most openly social city so it was refreshing getting to bust a gut with a stranger over "Train operator Larry getting crushed by a sandbag in a freak testing accident." You mentioned you have a gf and I have a bf so it'd be great to just hangout or trade books since we live in the same area! If you don't see this I bet I'll see you in the area or on some late night bus ride. To verify what is my name or what phone-case do I have or what country is Larry from? Cheers!

David outside St. Augustines

You're the tall, blond, recently divorced fellow who grabbed my hand and gave me a hug out of the blue outside St. Augustines. After checking my brain to see if I knew you and wondering if maybe you were on mdma, I concluded that you were simply being unconventional. I must say that your approach, unorthodox as it was, made my day. Good luck to you in life and love, David! Perhaps I'll see you around the drive.

Shi Zen Ya Restaurant on Hornby (at Nelson)

I saw you eating at Shi Zen Ya restaurant. I had never been before but for some reason, I was drawn there today! I was on the phone, waiting for take out when I saw you. I was wearing black pants, a white shirt, I had my brown hair up and was wearing gold leaf earrings. You were eating on your own, had two Herschel bags with you, and when you got up to leave, we smiled at one another. I said hello, and immediately regretted not starting more of a conversation. Soon after my take out arrived, and I left and out of the corner of my eye I saw you waiting at the street corner. I so wish I had been bold and turned around sooner, but once I had, you were gone. I know this is such an extreme, but I felt energy with you that I have to explore. Here's hoping that you felt it as well, and also had the crazy notion that this might work! I will definitely return to the restaurant tomorrow - let's see if the universe will work in our favour! :)

Jeff from Victoria, it was lovely chatting with you during the ride and before dinner. But then you dined with family and I dined with friends...and the evening was over. Care to meet up for another beautiful ride in our home province?

Osoyoos BC 2001, 2002 summer

It only says 2006 because thats as far back ss it goes uh oh. This is as long of a long shot as it gets I think but here goes: me-18 or 19 (best guess)blonde hair I think I was wearing it in two braids that summer but I might be wrong) I was skinny girl kinda pale (I know sounds hot) I think I had 2-3 tattoos by then. I was there with my family; mom and my two sisters, and my cousins. I was staying in a tent with my cousin, she had long brown hair oh were white btw. You were there with your family, you were staying in a tent with two other guys right by the office/ store thing. this was at a camp site called cabanna beach. I think that you said you were from alberta or ontario originally and you were visiting and something to do with your mom deciding where you live. Not very sure on that one tbh. You had a bmx you would ride around and you also weren't super tall, I'm like 5'3" and was same height then too and you weren't like towering over me like almost everyone else. Anyways on my last night there I can remember spending a memorable night with you - obvioustly if I can still remember after all these years! We didn't have sex just cuddling and stuff and I remember thinking that I was sure I would see you again but never did as far as I know. I can be a bit spacey (hah) sometimes and not recognise people so I'm sorry if i did run into you and not remember. If you remember please reply. Obviously some other things that you remember because I'm not getting scammed/tricked by a perv! Thank you!

I saw you at the Q BAR, Empress Fairmont

I saw you sitting in SW corner of the Fairmont Empress Q Bar near the water on Thursday July 21/early July 22. I have short cropped blonde hair, and am fairly tall at 5'9", but not as tall as you. You were sitting with a group of three other people, 2 women and a man. I thought you had beautiful eyes, your hands were in your lap, so I couldn't see if you had a ring. I was with a group I'd been working with, and left past your table from the outside patio - I didn't think it was appropriate to disturb you at the time, but wanted to say hi. Saw you the next day outside, but lost my nerve to say hello. Wish I hadn't. If you're single, and by some chance see this, I'd love to hear from you.

Tragically Hip Concert

Sunday's Hip concert, Section 311. You were in Row 10 seat 1 I think. I was 2 rows back and 2 seats over. We had a couple of moments of eye contacts and smiles. We could have been more but I was a little self-conscious that I kept crying. Emotional night, great show, amazing goodbye to Gord. Maybe there is a hello in there somewhere too?

Fire works

I was with my family (daughter, mother and her partner) and you were sitting next to us with a lady friend. We mad eyes a few times. I gave you a smile -- you gave one back. I got such a warm and easy going sense from you. I'm sure you've gotten remarks on being Paul Rudds' blonde doppelgänger in the past. I'd say he has nothing on you, though. In true cliche, "I've never done this before" but if you see this, I'd love to get together for coffee or a drink sometime.

Bright smile on the Howe Sound Crest Trail

I was the muddy solo hiker you passed on your way up as I was making my way back down. I was in maroon tech pants and a blue sports bra. I don't remember what you were wearing because the image of your bright smiling eyes were what stayed with me. You were tall, brown curly hair. We had a very short exchange; just hi's and how are you's? You said you were excellent. I was already having a great day. You made it even better. Want company on your next hike?

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.

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 ;)

Late for work and without a date... but

...but on second thought lets at least meet for a friendly tea at the Union Market??

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.
