Sausage Party....

you do not strike me as the type of person that would read these things, and to be honest neither am i, but what have i got to lose...i saw you tonight at the movie theatre and i was sitting in front of you. if i'm not mistaken you were wearing a white striped shirt, black shorts and nikes. i've got blonde hair and i was with my guy friend. i doubt you'll ever read this, but i thought you were really attractive and i would have loved to grab your number or something but i had no liquid courage in me. in the unlikely event that you are reading this, gimme a shout :)

Ramenman West End

You were looking for a table at Ramenman, and smiled. I sat outside, sorry I did not invite you to join me. You were with a friend. I liked how seriously you discussed your ramen with the staff, and your smile. Let's have ramen together?

You, me and Wreck

Wreck Beach. Me: nude, curvy, tattooed caucasian woman with bleached hair. You: nude, caucasian man with brown hair and an amazing smile. I was comfortably set up, solo, on the sand in front of you with me multicolour umbrella. We exchanged some smiles and words, you asked me how the water was! As you left you walked by me telling me you were on the hunt for shadier space before you got burnt... i'm usually super gutsy and would have made a comment about perhaps seeing you again? But I left it up to chance... wreck beach season isn't over! Contact me if you want to find some shade together :)

You: all black, handsome, camera around your neck, casually lounging on the corner of the drive and broadway all suave like. Me: stopped at the light on my old ten speed. curious. looked over and exchanged glances at least a couple times. You're handsome and intriguing. Meet ups? What color was my bike?

If we could reconnect....

I saw your post in "I Saw You". Have been trying to contact you for a week, but have not heard anything back. We met 9 years ago, POF, my name is Lianne, I am Jewish, live in Kits, went to Israel, etc, etc. Many friends have forwarded me this post and I would love to reconnect. Please be in touch if you see this. That would be amazing.

Tall, dark and handsome

We were at the intersection of Davie and Thurlow outside of Starbucks. You had a red shirt and a skateboard, tall and handsome. I had pink hair in a braid and you asked me for a smoke. Shoulda got your name and number, felt like we vibed. Did we?

Oh my God where's Omad?!

We met at 7-11 in New Westminster at the end of July, possibly the 17th or 24th. We talked about tattoos and dogs. I am the voluptuous blond with blue eyes. You asked me to blaze and I said no , been kicking my ass ever since. Would love to hear from you. How many tattoos do I have???

Cutie@ BCL in Kingsgate Mall

We made eye contact in the beer aisle at BCL in Kingsgate Mall and I asked you if you knew where I could find a 26 of Wiser. We talked for a bit, then we went our separate ways. At the cash register, we made eye contact again and you teased me about my purchase; Cider and a 2.6 of Wiser. I wanted to invite you to my party that night, but pussied out. You: tall, dirty blonde/brown hair, hip, light blue shirt. Me: brown hair, stripped shirt, blue jeans. I enjoyed the casual tease. Bikes and beers?

Cute AF couple at the dog beach

You guys were SO Adorbs, pretending not to see your dog shit on a beach full of people and their dogs. It was extra cute how you deliberately pointed outwards at bowen island instead of acknowledging your dog's soft serve gracefully swirling onto the sand, even though it was >10ft upwind of you. I thought you may have been a deaf couple as you immediately started walking away and ignored my requests to pick up after your dog. I thought it was so very cool of you to then lie to the life guard who chased you down because *maybe* you legitimately didn't hear me calling to you. I feel like I need more of you in my life, as a dog walker I've found myself yearning for more turds to pick up in my day to day. I really hope you see this and maybe we can connect, I'll bring the bags ;) You: Basic AF with your Pigeotto haircut and your probably-free-from-a-food-truck sunglasses, tight jean cutoffs, and button down shirt, with your equally basic redheaded hipster girlfriend and overweight Vizsla, being entitled AF, and clearly a (pun fully intended) crappy dog owner.

Shell Gas Station - South Surrey

You were pumping gas at the pump ahead of me, in a black jeep, wearing a blue shirt and dark shorts. I drive a civic and dropped a piece of paper on my way out, which you noticed. We exchanged glances, thought I'd post this in case you saw it and want to exchange more.

handsome cyclist

We exchanged big smiles crossing the Ontario and 16th intersection on our bikes. You: dark hair, dark eyes, backwards hat. Your gorgeous smile brightened my day! Me: on my road bike, wearing all black, long brown hair in a pony tail. If you are single I would love to meet up for a drink or a bike ride sometime. Skill testing question... what colour were my sunglasses?

Forgive my crazy

We met last fall. Our eyes locked at a friends bday/halloween party and later you got my number. We went on a few casual dates and fooled around over the next couple months. I shocked you the night that I flipped at you over text and I don't blame you. My attempt to stand up for myself and avoid being used was uncalled for. I was excited about you, so attracted to you. I wanted you to want me too. I felt rejected when you weren't making the effort that I was craving. I called you a jerk and gave you tips on how to handle your other ladies (I lol at how crazy that was now). I thought I saw you walking the other day and had an urge to say hi. I hesitated as it occurred to me that I do not know you at all and ruined any chance of ever getting to way too early. I regret that. I think we could've had a good ride. I like your style (and your peoples food, I know you like mine too). Cheers to fudging things up with babes way too early to even know if you could genuinely have feelings for them. I hope you're well.

You caught my eye, I told you you were cute

We were picking out our groceries and saw each other from a far a few times. I was done paying and you were next up in another checkout line. By the time I got into my car and was waiting to pull out onto the road you were walking my way. You walked in front of my car and we exchanged a nice smile. I turned the corner as you walked and cut you off at the next driveway to tell you how cute I thought you were. I think you were surprised! Trying to not be too awkward I drove away before I could ask you if you were single.... Are you??

West Coast Trail - Thrasher Beach

lack tshirt with a football on went swimming in the ocean. We got into camp on our last night early, you came late which I think was your first day/night. I think you were alone, super cute, dark hair, beard, athletic....You camped alone just into the treeline and stayed to yourself, pretty quiet. But I kept looking at you and would catch you looking at me. I tried to look you up under solo trail entries from the day before at the Gordon River station but no luck. Ha somehow thought this maybe would work!!

Bottle guy

Are you available???

I was beside you at the Colin James show at the Burnaby Blues and Roots. You were wearing a Chilkoot Pass sweatshirt and I was wearing an off-white tank top and white skirt. I noticed you weren't wearing a wedding band. Are you available? and would you be interested in meeting?

Twin Sails

We joked while waiting in line, you said you did not have an accent though my friend and I could hear one. You mentioned it was perhaps because you were just speaking to your Dad in Ukrainian and I joked about my Ukrainian side of the family. I thought would we could chat once we got our beers , but you were only buying to go...

The Wise Hall 'killer hill' guy

I stopped after cycling the hill on Adanac just outside the Wise Hall Saturday night. You were on your way back in and called out something about it being a killer hill. All I could manage in my state was a very ladylike four letter exclamation. I wish I had asked you to come see for yourself how heavy my bike is and to have an excuse to continue conversing with your dark handsome self. Bike rides?

Len At Robson Square Ballroom Dancing

We danced in the cha-cha lesson and chatted a bit later before you took a smoke break. You: short gray hair, glasses, long time dancer--you even have THE shoes. Me: petite, short hair with blonde streaks, glasses, not a great dancer now, in gold running shoes. I liked your sense of humour and mischievous glint in your eyes. I've been dancing 2X since then but you're not there. I'd like to see you again. You too?

Stealing Glances on the #9

I jumped on the #9 bus at Broadway & Windsor. Had I noticed you sitting there when I was trying to get my pass out to scan, I would've sat up front next to you. Instead I walked to the back of the bus, but happened to be in great eye line as we kept stealing glances with each other for rest of ride :) Then we both got off at same stop & conveniently almost walked into each other. Both looked back but think you might've been trying to find whatever place you were looking for. You: Tall, brunette, facial hair/beard, light grey long-sleeve waffle shirt & jeans. Me: Redhead/strawberry blonde trying to read my book between glances, glasses, beige tank top & jean capris. Here's to hoping we can actually chat!

Tuesday @ Tragically Hip Show in your 50 mission cap

Armed with will and determination, and grace, too. You were sitting in the row below me with your buddy, you had on a white tshirt and baseball cap. Shy but courageous enough to ask for my number then disappeared before you got it. Tell me how we started talking and you can have the number :)

Canna Clinic on Commercial Drive

I work at Canna Clinic. You came back in the store to give me your number, bumped into me with my boyfriend, and tripped and almost fell over the sign outside. I like your moves. I'm single now. Giant date?

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.
