Hi stranger

I am going to have to start talking to strangers. I've wasted tons of time on dating apps and basically I cant get a match or a reply to save my life. But I'm not a troll! I'm at least average! I want to meet people so maybe I will have to talk to strangers. But I don't want to be a creep, I just want to be friendly and if you don't want to talk that's cool, just tell me, but please don't be mean.

mad over the vacancy tax?

yes it's true that every property owner needs to pro-actively prove that their properties are truly being rented.... I've seen some vancouverites online get mad about this, talking about gov't overreach. I think u're just mad that the gov't is smart enough to know that if they let u just be honest most of u would lie lie lie and the vacancy rate would plummet to 0% all of a sudden and $0 taxes would be collected. landlords in vancouver have a lot of work to do to regain the trust of the renters. I have been screwed over by one landlord after another, and many of them will break the law 'cause they can. at least the RTB is starting to be more tenant friendly now. the gov't is smarter than u. they know that if landlords had their way this city would implode. taking and taking from the renters until we have nothing to lose. that's not a place u want this city to be in.


I am one of these stop and smell the flowers kind of guys. And I confess that when I stop to smell flowers now, I don't smell anything. Is there a place in Vancouver that I can actually smell the scent of a great flower or am I doomed to not have that in Vancity?!

About that rainy cake....

You said I was destroying it with suspicion, but we both know that’s not true. I meant exactly what I said; suspicion is created when someone refuses to lay their cards on the table and continually evades any conversation where openness and honesty are necessary. You’re about as slippery as they come; a master at avoidance. But don’t you know that a lie by omission is still a lie? I believe that I was right that you only contacted me after all this time because your other relationships had both ended. As you’re well aware I’m extremely vulnerable right now due to my situation, and the last thing I need is the additional stress of trying to decipher what the hell you want from me. I’m not interested in being just another “friend”, and I can’t imagine that anything with you is ever going to change. I know you read these, so either call me prepared to get real and serious, or leave me alone forever.

Let if flow

I hereby confess that I am pro pipeline. Build them, build them all!

How do you do it?

Trying to end a long term relationship of 15 years. The pain I know I will inflict on them makes this so scary. I did it a few years ago, we got back together. I tried to leave last year, they managed to convince me to stay and the ease of not leaving won...we're still together now. The stress of all the bullshit I'll have to deal with leaving makes me want to avoid it and just stay, how pathetic is that? If you were with someone that wanted to leave, wouldn't you just let them leave? I wouldn't want to stay with or try to convince someone to stay who wants to leave. There is only so much I can say before I start to say something I regret just so they'll get mad and 'let' me leave.


IM BORED.. But not giving up! Pretty sure the next door is opening. Wish me luck Moving on up like the Jeffersons.. Chow


I often check Missed Connections and I Saw You’s, hoping beyond hope that one day somebody, anybody might notice me. I know it’s irrational, borderline narcissistic and a complete waste of time, because it will never happen. But if I couldn’t see myself, I would swear I’m transparent.

I saw your shiny silver veneer from the window of the number 8 bus as we went past Thornton Park....
