I don't normally like beards, but....

I know you're completely off limits, but I can't stop thinking about you. I realize I don't talk to you much, but there's a reason for my silence: You render me tongue-tied with one glance. Sorry for being so abrupt yesterday when you approached me. I'm a complete dork around men I find attractive.You're the first guy I've had an interest in in almost three years, and I'm kinda rusty. I know I don't have a hope in hell with someone like you, but a girl can dream.Thanks for making work tolerable with your dark, brooding, sarcastic presence. You're fine as hell—but you already know that.

  To the guy with the curly hair and glasses who works at one of the NSLC's dope counters: I play the line game trying to get you but I always end up at the other guy's tilt. Such a bummer as you are lovely. I wonder if you're single?
—Can I have a receipt please?

Bussed opportunity

Posted By on Mon, Jun 3, 2019 at 1:36 PM

It was nice sitting next to you on the bus to Halifax. You boarded in Amherst, I think: Blue and black and denim. You said you'd have to sit next to me as it was the only seat. How could I have minded?

I asked if it was still raining outside, although I had a window seat and could see for myself. We didn't say much on the drive, but I would have sat there happily all the way to Yarmouth, had we both been bound that way.

When we were leaving the bus at the terminal, you smiled and offered to let me go ahead. I grabbed my backpack from the overhead, sat down, and froze like a kid at his first middle school dance. By the time I left the bus, you were gone. I still have the weird note I scribbled as we were pulling in, but could not offer you when it counted.

Maybe we'll sit next to each other again sometime. A guy can hope!
— Never too old to act like a dork, apparently

Sunshine at Mumford Professional Centre

Posted By on Mon, Mar 25, 2019 at 6:13 PM

Blonde beautiful girl wearing a yellow dress on the first day of March. I immediately noticed a distinctive personality, a unique soul, one who can laugh at anything, one who is kind and caring to others. Her sweet smile can melt anyone's heart, her blue ayes are from another galaxy. You made my day and possibly my existence.

Red beret made my day

Posted By on Mon, Mar 4, 2019 at 6:03 PM

You were at The Oval. As was I. It was the last Thursday in February at noon or so. I couldn’t help but drift close to you to watch you skate. Your blond hair flowing from a red beret. It made my day to do a few more laps. See ya round, and round and...

Fellow Boxing Day movie-goer

Posted By on Wed, Jan 2, 2019 at 11:29 AM

To the cute guy who sat three seats down from me at Vice this afternoon at MicMac Mall. You had longish hair and glasses, I had red hair and a big sweater. I meant to smile back and you but was momentarily too shy.—Boxing Day bold

Kind, bearded bus rider

Posted By on Mon, Dec 10, 2018 at 1:56 PM

You were on the bus heading to Dartmouth and picked up a glove another lady dropped. I thought you were cute but I’m shy and didn’t chat. Also, is hitting on people on buses a thing? I don’t know, but I hope to see you commuting again!

Schoolgirl staring

Posted By on Mon, Oct 22, 2018 at 3:53 PM

To the man at Alteregos on Saturday with the beanie, forearm tattoo & beard: Wow. I don't know if you're a Halifax Pop Explosion artist just passing through or a longtime Hali resident, but you are one handsome dude. If you're looking for a broke uni chick who likes coffee, I'm your girl.
—I'd rather study you

Will we speak next time?

Posted By on Mon, Oct 22, 2018 at 3:47 PM

You are a handsome guy (about my height) who works out at Dalplex in the mornings. Sunday you left at 10:45 am wearing black Blundstone boots after we locked eyes a couple of times downstairs. I'm new to the city, very shy and inexperienced. Maybe I'll see you there around the same time on Sunday Oct 28?

Perfect strangers

Posted By on Tue, Oct 16, 2018 at 4:58 PM

To the beautiful young lady with glasses on the number 80 a couple weeks back, the one in the military green jacket: We exchanged silent nervous glasses and I regret not introducing myself. Maybe it was on account of a mutual timidness or perhaps I was awe-struck by your soft features. Whatever the case I'm putting all my eggs in the basket of serendipity and hoping our paths may cross again. However, if they don't, I'll remember those brief moments of eye contact fondly and I wish you a beautiful life as perfect strangers.

Thanks for the photo, are you single?

Posted By on Tue, Sep 11, 2018 at 12:22 PM

That's what I wish I said. you were so sweet, you chatted with me, took my photo at Dal O Week and I froze. You made me laugh. You were so kind and cute, but I froze. I don't even remember your name, just that your hand tattoo said Love. I wish I didn't freeze up. Thanks for the photo, are you single?
—Frozen without you

Saturday at the Beach on Route 3, two weeks ago

Posted By on Tue, Aug 28, 2018 at 12:48 PM

I spoke to you briefly. You were absolutely gorgeous. Your mismatched bikini had a black top and striped bottoms. I was absolutely gaga and you were even more beautiful with how sweet you were with your daughter. I didn't see a wedding or engagement band...I assumed you are single?

Smitten at the Sackville Terminal

Posted By on Tue, Jul 17, 2018 at 11:15 AM

To the guy who was shirtless with camo shorts: You truly are a heartthrob! Sorry if I made it awkward as I shyly smiled and our eyes met as I was going by, and if from a distance I was checking you out. Your good mood and all things hunky made me smile bashfully. Make sure you use sunblock—studs shouldn't get burned.

Rockin' Gal

This is for the rockin' gal I met climbing the cliffs at Blomidon this past Sunday looking for amethyst. You were the gem of the day. Regret not exchanging a little more info. Keep on rockin'
