Breka on 4th. Eyes locked more than once

I think it was B.C. day around 8pm. I was riding my bike up from the beach to Breka Bakery on 4th close to Alma. You were sitting at a table with your notebook open. As you got up to walk up the stairs our eyes locked, it was as if time stopped. When you came back down the stairs our eyes locked once again. As I was walking out with my food we smiled at each other and you did a little nose twitch that I will probably remember for the rest of my life. I deeply regret not engaging you in conversation. I went back to Breka the following Monday around the same time to see of you were there. Here's hoping you see this and reach out.

Delivering a big box on Cordova St

I was coming from the gym, pushing my bike as I was busy on a video call. You were waiting outside of 22 East Cordova, at the Van Horne. We were both dresses in black. I noticed you looking at me, so I replied with the biggest smile. I should have stopped and said "hi". If you see this, text me. It'd be nice to have such handsome reason to smile to again.

Quick interaction on your way to sunbathing

We spoke briefly this afternoon as you were heading out to go sunbathing. I was wearing kahki's and a striped blue and white t-shirt, heading west. I agreed that what you were showing me was real. I would like to continue the conversation if you are interested.

mysterious water nymph at cypress falls

i dragged my hungover friends to go swimming at a childhood spot i hadn't been in over a decade. they stayed on the rocks, but I explored upstream and found you walking over the stones in your magnificent splendor. We shared an awkward wave, and I left you alone. I came back again with a friend hoping you would have friends and be more approachable, but it didn't seem right to disrupt your forest meditation. You were so incredibly lovely as you moved over the rock and water. If you'd like to get to know a fellow heathen, please reach out...

66 ACRES 8th main st

This is super weird to post on here.. I couldnt stop thinking about the eye contact that was made when you were seated at the bar. Shoulder length brown hair and you were with your friend. I have long dark curly hair and I was waiting for to get into the washroom at the time we made eye contact. When I left I looked over and you were still staring.. I should have made a move but ya know its covid.. this was last weekend on Saturday.

Looking for Lucky

Our eyes met at the Granville Island dock and it seemed like there was instant chemistry. I gave you a lift on m boat and you gave me smoked salmon. I've been kicking myself for not asking for your number.

You helped me, I want to dat...thank you!

I was riding my mountain bike and you were on a road bike. I was stopped on Fern St in North Van looking at my phone. You asked if I was lost and I kinda was. You led me to Spirit Trail which was amazing. I wish I had asked you for your contact but I choked, I hope you see this now.

Girl on #25

You are most likely Brazilian, with wavy blond hair, and were with a friend that you sat at the front of the bus with. You had a big Home Sense bag. We smiled a few times. I should have gotten off that bus to get your number when you did. That smile of yours is sooo nice.

August Long Weekend at Wreck

I think you have your last name tattooed on your side. We physically bumped into each other and I couldn’t get over how soft your skin was. You winked at me and I melted. I hope to bump into you again soon ;)

You know why I like other cultures?

Because you don't have to be thin, skinny, PC, pretentious and do 20 different sports to fit...
