Bat signal

Hey Batman, was that you on the number 1 bus? I thought I caught your eye and I thought it was you but you turned away. It seemed like maybe you didn't want to see me. I've looked for you, but you seem to be strangely invisible online. I should have talked to you even though you turned away. I'm happily married and at the same time you'll always have a little part of my heart, even since that first day we both had our luggage torn open at YHZ airport security. I miss you. I would love to hear from you. Even just a little hello. — Girl In The Black Dress

Bedford bagpipe long shot

Posted By on Thu, Jan 16, 2020 at 12:27 PM

I am looking for a man that I had a brief moment with at a New Year's Eve party many years ago. We were at a house party in Bedford where he played the bagpipes. We watched each other all night, or at least I think we did. We were never introduced. He hugged me when he was leaving, asked me to leave with him. I was married, and even though I wanted to, I couldn't leave. I have always thought of you. I'm not married any more. I still think about you. Maybe you still remember me? Many years later? Thought I would try...positive thoughts!

Tatted gym-goer in knee-high socks

To the tatted man who goes to the university gym: Interesting manner about you and I have to say I’m intrigued. Could have sworn we made prolonged eye contact (maybe I’m reading into it). Next time you’re in you should bump into me at the water fountain. I promise I’ll start the conversation.

Got your name, but not your number

Posted By on Thu, Dec 5, 2019 at 8:22 AM

I'm generally not one to talk up strangers in grocery store check-out lines, but there was something about our exchange of smiles and gazes around the store that compelled me to check out with you. Watching you shudder, then laugh was the perfect reaction to me describing my art. I shouldn't have let you leave without my number. Here's hoping we'll meet again at our favourite north end grocer.

Cosmic love

I never thought I’d meet anyone that I loved like I loved her. I thought that the days of butterflies were long behind me. Never did I expect for you to be the one I wanted to stay up with late at night. Wake up beside. And kiss every day for the rest of my life. If only I could tell you these things, but you’re my best friend.

Gypsy cover band

Dancing to Fleetwood Mac, we chatted about your cool world tattoo and our love of the band and our mutual friend. Bass player is your cousin and I was rockin’ a moustache. Our moment was ruined by a drunk guy, and you had to leave. We should talk again.

Your red hair and my nuts

Posted By on Tue, Nov 12, 2019 at 9:54 AM

It was a Saturday at Pete’s in the afternoon, and I was awkwardly holding a bag of nuts and talking to my friend. You have long red hair and you were wearing a cream-coloured coat. You walked by, and we shared a smile, and a little laugh. I think you’re super-beautiful. I’m the woman with short curly brown hair and glasses.

Missed connection or just *WOW* you are handsome

To the very handsome and friendly firefighter (white uniform) whom I was chatting with in line at Superstore late morning on a Tuesday: I am sure you have a lovely wife. On the off chance that you do not, I am very single. If I missed an opportunity, maybe the universe will find a way for us to meet again?

Just a couple of dunces II

“Oh, Fortuna, you capricious sprite!” I always tell people about our lovely, spontaneous encounter on the bus. About how it was a perfect rom-com set-up, and how I was so stupid to let you go without asking for your number.

Love at first sight

I first saw you a couple weeks ago, standing at the cash, very shy and very beautiful. I saw you again last night at your work, mentioning to me you were getting off work in 30 minutes. You were wearing a yellow rain coat inside and your adorable "my mobile" necklace/pouch hanging from your neck. We had a quick conversation as I was buying my water and beef jerky, and I left, also too shy to say anything more.

You were reading the same book as me on the bus, back in March I think. You had just finished writing an English proficiency test for your permanent residency, and we talked about the book. I have regretted not asking you what your name was since, and am wondering if we will ever cross paths again.

To the carpenter/artist with the moves

Thanks again for being the right kind of weirdo! I've had the most emotionally draining week, and you made everything seem a little less bitter. If I weren't happily coupled I would have gladly let you hit on me. Perhaps in another dimension my doppleganger gave you a ride home and her number. In this dimension, I thank you for brightening my night and being a complete gentleman.

Hey Mr. Postman: We stopped and talked two summers in a row on the steps to the beach. You had lots of time to spend there because of an injury. How about meeting again on Monday, September 23, rain or shine around 4pm?

Loved your smile and style

Posted By on Wed, Aug 21, 2019 at 1:48 PM

Looking for a sweet-looking guy who gave me a quick smile on the #2 bus to Mumford 18/08/19. He had long hair in a low pony, a septum piercing, metal tee, green shorts and grey backpack. I sat across from him (you) and was chatting excitedly with my sis. This seems crazy to even me, but thought I might try. Not too many people feel like home when you look at them.
