On the Seawall near Granville Island

I was walking slowly because I hurt my left leg from over running. You passed me but kept a few paces ahead. Did you on purposely walk slow because of me. You turned around a couple of times. Later, you paused somewhere but then popped up again and passed me and walked slowly a few paces ahead of me again. I followed behind you again. You crossed the walk at Granville Island but I turned down. Should have followed you some more. You had blue shirt and brown hair. It was nice of you to slow your pace. My leg is injured.

On your way back from the beach

You were tall, striking and had fun hair, I was in in a long striped dress with glasses. You were walking up from the beach with a wet chocolate lab, I was headed down. You said "hey", I said "hey" back, and so wish I'd said more. I haven't had anyone turn my head like that since the Before Times.

6 Month Old Puppy on Heather

Hi- I was just running down Heather and you crossed 16th with your puppy. We talked for just a second, but I didn't know how to give you my number in a not awkward way and I missed my chance. You probably won't see this, but worth a shot! :)

You didn’t like the spritz I made you.

I caught you making a face of discussed when trying a spritz I made for you at a restaurant near Fraser & Kingsway. We had a good laugh. Thought you were really cute. Coffee? The Bar Guy

Park puncher

You, punching your trainer, it looked hot... and sounded loud! Wow, you put in power! I was being silly (had a whole internet marketing plan to make you a YouTube star off that punch) and you didn't run away, I didn't expect that, got self conscious and moved on. I listened to a message from afar after, turned and saw you watch me. I should have came back and asked you for "coffee", but wasn't sure if the look was curiosity or... um... curiosity. Still not sure (maybe you were just being kind, indulging in some light banter, maybe not and I didn't know I was successfully flirting and not used to success?) but here you can say yea or nay more freely without putting you on the spot in public. Here's hoping you at least see this, now I'm curious... and, um, curious. :) PS time was somewhere between 5:30 -7:15pm, not sure but it was end of the day, very scenic place to throw a punch!

Apollo 12 Buddies

Umm, hey- it was really nice getting to know you waiting for the bus from the ferry. I know you have a partner, which is I think why we were hesitant to exchange info, but I'm actually really not in a relationship place, I just think you're a real sweet human who is into a lot of the same stuff (and has the same bike). You're great- let's connect if you're feeling it.

Photo in CBC story on Aging with Pride social

Your photo is in a CBC story on an Aging With Pride social posted on July 30th. You gave your name as Mike, aged 72. You said you felt like an outsider. However, it looks like you take care of yourself. I'm five years younger and do the same. Maybe we could meet for a physically distanced coffee sometime?

You offered me a chair outside Starbucks

Sunday, Aug. 16th, Starbucks at Yukon St and West 6th. You offered me a chair. I said I was on my way, walking and talking on my phone but thanked you for being considerate -- which you were. Maybe we could meet again there, and this time I will accept your offer.

You were gassing up yesterday (Saturday) at PetroCan. You were wearing a short floral skirt with very nice curves. This is the second time I've noticed you in da hood. I'd love to hangout with ya'll! Ciao!
