Salt at Bon's

There were two of you at your table. I'd met eyes with one of you once or twice so I suspect it was you who noticed me scoping out other tables for a salt shaker, but maybe the one who noticed was the one who passed yours over to us... Whoever it was, I really respect how observant you were and I really appreciate your action. The salt took an already glorious meal to the next level. It's 2018 and I understand not all kindness equals flirting but just in case- it's worth noting that despite appearances, my lunch partner was not a date. Keep on being awesome either way, though! Thanks again.

Main & 14th then at Brewery Creek

I saw you and your dog at the intersection of Main & 14th then again at a Brewery Creek. You were with your dad? You had a toothpick in your mouth, we made final eye contact and I smiled at you as you were standing at the door, about to leave. You have warm eyes and I found something attractive about your energey. I saw you and I’d like to see you again.

Bumping backs on the crowed 14 this evening, your quiet demeanur caught my eye. When we finally sat beside each other I couldn’t come up with any words to say to you. Then, I could feel your eyes watching me as I got off the bus. So... looks like we’re in the same neighborhood. Coffee?

Woman on the #3 Main Bus

We ran into each other getting on the #3 Main bus earlier tonight at Main and Hastings. You got off at Main and 12th Avenue. As we sat across from each other, we exchanged a few glances. After you got off the bus, we continued the glances through the bus window. If my stop wasn't so far away I would have got off the bus to say hello to you!

J: Dec 1, morning ferry from Fulford-Swartz bay. Near the end of the trip you got a bit worried you were on the wrong boat the trip went so fast. We chatted on the boat, I showed you the 'shortcut' to upstairs, then we chatted more outside while we were waiting for our connections. Wish I'd passed along my number. S

I saw you twice on Friday

I saw you twice on Friday, and we both commented on it. We work for an employer where it would not be acceptable for me to ask you out - or I would. But I think it would be okay for you to ask me for a coffee. I would say, "yes".

Morning 211 Bus Driver - Chris

I saw you for the first time on the #27; you were my driver. We flirted daily but I was too shy to say anything and then you disappeared. I was secretly hoping that you would ask me out. I kept kicking myself for not engaging you in conversation but then I chanced upon you two weeks before your route ended on #95 in August of this year. I actually managed to introduce myself and again, you disappeared with barely a warning this time. I have spotted you driving the 211 since October and keep thinking of you. I don’t think that you read these Chris…. but I keep hoping that we will meet again and that I won’t be so tongue-tied when we do. Until then…

Elf meets Viking at Stiff Little Fingers Show

Your offer to lift me above the crowd was very sweet. I really was protecting your neck by refusing. I would love to talk about Iceland, Elf school, and your viking heritage. I apologize for being a little rude at first; just too many people walked into me like I wasn't there. It might be a short person's thing. I wanted to stay and talk, but was shy.

Spattered windows

Hi, we were on the skytrain yesterday. You were standing by the doors wearing a purple shirt with a camel/olive coloured coat and looked to be doing some peaceful window gazing with a gentle smile. I was the lady sitting wearing a green coat also gazing out raindrop spattered windows. Would you like to go out for a coffee or tea?

We were both went to the concert alone.

You were wearing a leather jacket, had long blonde hair. We were both waiting for the music to start, standing near the front. Your name was J and mine was S. We talked about the kind of music we liked, music and arts is a huge part of your life. You had an English accent and I promised to listen to your favorite artists. I wanted to keep in contact and exchange information but you left right after the concert. I'm from another province, so at the very least, I just wanted you to know that I thought you were one of the coolest girls I have ever met.

You asked if my dog and your dog could meet -I was sitting outside Starbucks, Columbia & 6th. You, beautiful brunette! Before we had a chance to strike up a conversation, my lady date appeared from within Starbucks.

We shared eyes outside the Regis on Friday

I was with a friend on Dunsmuir just after 5pm in front of the Regis Pub having a smoke and taking and you walked by, I suppose coming from work towards Granville. You were blonde, beautiful, young, professional looking, stunning. I was tall, toque with glasses and stubbly face. I looked you in the eyes and you did a triple take as you walked by. I couldn’t disengage. If you see this..you won’t....message me.

Noticeable Server at Lamplighter

Sitting at the Lamplighter on a Friday night reading the Straight, you served me and commented that I Saw You was your favourite part, but you wished someone noticed you. I agreed that I loved reading I Saw You, but also have never been Seen. However, I disagree. I noticed you. I Saw You. Hope to see you again sometime.
