Personal Trainer - Steve Nash

If I wasn't so shy I would tell you your body is ridiculous in a good way. You seem to have a sparkle in your eye and I am so very attracted to you. Your first name starts with a D. I'm sure you are married or have a girlfriend but maybe if you have a gym crush too it's time to come clean...

dear blonde man on the skytrain

i never thought i would write one of these haha, but i feel strangely compelled to try to find you. you were the really tall guy with shoulder-length hair who was on the millennium line with me and then the expo to surrey too, and we were standing quite close on the expo. the moment i saw you i really wanted to draw you. i'm the girl in the pink sweater and dark blue jacket who was reading on the kindle. i wish i hadn't been too shy to even smile at you. i really hope you see this because i want to get a chance to say hello for real. :)

Jenga and a Kiss at Score

Sometime in January... My friend and I were about to leave when your friend invited us to your table. We played Jenga and exchanged a couple kisses. My friend wasn't into your friend, so friend code dictated ending the night early. I believe your name was Jason, an Aussie with tattoos :) Next time maybe we'll make it to nachos?

Choices in Burnaby

Shoulder Sneak on Alberta Street

We crossed paths while walking in opposite directions on 46th and Alberta at about 7:20pm on Monday night. We both smiled at each other, and when I looked back over my shoulder at you, noticed you were looking back at me, too. We both laughed, but kept walking. You called something out, but I didn't catch what it was. Just wanted to let you know that you caught my eye, and apparently I caught yours as well. I hope I see you around the neighbourhood again, and maybe you can let me know what it was you called out.

Made my morning at IKEA.

The store just opened and I just began my shift. You were one of the first customers to be helped in this particular area of the store. I was pre-occupied and working behind the employee helping you, but had to duck away and tend to some other matters for a minute. I came back and you were gone. You apparently mentioned my name and made a comment about me to the employee helping you. If you see this and reply -- mention my name, the IKEA location and department you saw me in, and perhaps a brief description of yourself (there were a couple of things that stood out about you). I'd like to know more about you -- who are you? :-)

Danced at the Ice-cream Social

We danced on and off all friday night; you and your friend seemed to always be close by. You were wearing a Beck t-shirt and toque, I in a yellow tank top and jeans. I really regret not exchanging numbers when the lights came on... interested in going for drinks?

To the woman with the claddagh ring

To the woman with the claddagh ring... I loved your beautiful laugh but never got your name. I was actually feeling pretty down this afternoon, so our interaction made my day. If you see this and respond, tell me which way you were wearing your claddagh ring, the colour of your jacket, and the colour of your hair. Don't forget to include your name! :) Yours to laugh with, JJN

Saw you on a Thailand ferry from Krabi to Ko Phi Phi the 14th Feb

You are the tall handsome traveller who was sitting at the back of the ferry when I got on and I sat down next to you. Then 2 girls sab between us. When we got to Ko Phi Phi I just lost you in the crowd but would have loved to talk to you. I'd be well surprised if this ad found you but who knows.. Love to hear from you :) Csilla VaNilla

Modestly Athletic at the Quick Nickle

Having just come out of the change room, you were at the counter paying for your purchase. The clerk remarked that your item must have looked great because you're so fit. This seemed oddly forward, but you modestly laughed it off. You mentioned sometimes going months without exercising, but are trying to get back into it, despite your love of Haagen Daz. I was the strawberry blonde girl with dimples standing indecisive over socks. You had a great smile. Would love to see it again... Perhaps over ice cream?

Partying at the Wise Hall

You had long black hair and a nice smile. You were partying with your friends at the table across from ours. We were the big group using six tables near the back. We made eye contact while your friends were playing darts. I was on my way out, but regretted not introducing myself.

Stunner on the #99 B-Line

I got on the B-Line at Cambie. You immediately caught my eye as I sat down across from you. You were wearing Blundstones, black jeans, jean jacket and black toque. I was wearing the same. By the time we started talking you were about to get off at the Fraser stop and I was going to the Rio and didn't have time to give you my number. I am kicking myself for not acting faster and would love to talk to you again!

Flared Jeans

You wore the best pair of flare jeans I've ever seen. I was going to come say that, but got distracted by some… records. I came back, but you were gone. I know this ad is a long shot, but I believe in magic.

Famous Foods sample table lady

You were making a good show of guessing people's taste. You got mine, and I commented that it must be my dirty clothes that tipped you're cute. Could I take you out for chips and dip? Use your intuition ;)

Starbucks Fairview

You sat down a few tables away and I couldn't stop looking at you. You were dark, well dressed and had glasses on. I asked you to watch my things when I went to the washroom- risky move but I was too shy to say anything else to you. Our eyes met again when I packed up my bag. I'd like to see you again :) Juliana

Asian lady, petting my dog at the foot of Jellicoe St

Cute asian girl at the fox on vday

I originally posted this on craigslist, but then I kept getting notifications about sightings at the fox on here so hopefully you see this. You were wearing a big pink skirt and sipping on an old fashioned (I think?), I am the tall guy with glasses wearing a bow-tie drinking beer. Made eyes at you a few times but didn't have enough liquid courage to come say hi. Saw you outside the club and was gonna try and approach you when I saw you take cookies out of your pockets and distribute them to strangers - gotta say, it was pretty darn cute. Msg me and I'll take you out for whiskey and cookies.
