Cutie at The Interrupters

We were up the front, you had your black hat on backwards. I had a short black dress with stripes on the side.. but you were with a friend and I was trying to figure out what was going on there.... ? well, we exchanged plenty of smiles... if it doesn't work out, you should find me :P

The girl with the racoon tattoo

We were at The Interrupters on Oct 16. I’m the tall guy with the shaved head and goatee. I saw you during the Skinny Lister set, lost you during intermission, found you again during the main act and lost you again during the mad dash for coats. Curse friends who have to get home so they can sleep! I’d love to hear the story behind the racoon. Coffee / beer / ska show?

Server at Jamjar South Granville

The date I picked isn't necessary accurate, but you've worked at Jamjar South Granville as a server for some time now. I'm always excited and nervous when I come in and you're working, because there's just something about you. I've literally never caught your name and I'm too nervous to ask. You're slender, quiet, dark features, dark hair, and beautiful. Always in a black tee like everyone, but I feel like I may have seen you wear a black band tee once? Maybe a denim jacket? Maybe not. Anyway, my hunch tells me you're not into guys but if you are, I'd love to hear from you. If not, just know that I think you're beautiful.

Met you at the federal store

You stopped to say hi to my dog and I. You told me about your silver lab that passed away, and it was really touching. You asked if we could be friends, I gave you my number. I should have asked for yours, it all just happened so fast. I could see what a big heart you have. Call, text, find me. Come join us for a walk on the beach.

I was your leaning post in 7-11

Saw you trying to walk into the 7-11 at the corner of Smithe & Beatty around 3pm and I assumed you were drunk because you were staggering and falling down. I asked if you needed help, and you said you wanted a slurpee so I held you up to keep you from falling over while you waited in line to pay for it. Then you asked me to help you get back to your friends place a block away, and instructed me, "Not to take advantage of you!" It took us about half an hour to walk the block because you kept stopping and telling me you were gonna be sick, but never did. We still had a great conversation that really left a lasting impression on me. After thanking me for getting you back safely, I really wanted to ask for your # but refrained, as I didn't want to take 'advantage' of the situation. If by chance you happen to see this, I would love to get to know you over a coffee (or slurpee) some time.

On the 257 bus on Thanksgiving Monday

Can't stop thinking about our bus ride together today. We were both standing in the aisle and my ring caught your eye. We chatted heirloom rings, travelling Europe & Scandinavia, discussed music from Chet Baker to Rachmaninov. You sing alternative rock and brew craft beer. I play piano. Haven't had a conversation like that in a long time. Would love to keep chatting.

Lane in Kits

I drove past you in a purple Mazda. Blond hair, glasses, black jacket. You might have heard me accidentally honk the horn once I parked as I was trying to get all my stuff out. You were smoking in the lane, tall, blond hair, white T-shirt. Drink?

You liked my dog...a latte.

You politely asked to pet my dog outside of Moja. After introducing you to him, you both proceeded to comically take up the whole side walk while he tried to bully you into just giving him the treats. We spoke briefly about your late Portuguese Water Dog and Cat. You took out a hand rolled cigarette and asked for a light. I should have asked for your name and number at that moment. Instead, I obliged, became a bumbling fool, and upon receiving my light, my dog and I left. I stopped 3 times on the reminder of that walk and asked my furry companion if I should go back in an attempt to ask you for your number, but I decided to leave it up to fate. Here’s hoping you see this.

I challenged myself and feel great about...

About 2 years ago I turned my ringer off and left it off. I only turn it on if I know I'm...
