Awesome Peepz

To the awesome man and woman in front of UNM Bookstore with the signs: "Thank you for being you," and "Be Kind." You guys are awesome. I got off the bus to go give you a hug but by the time I doubled back, you were gone. Thank you for making me smile, and for having the courage to have a heart! View ad

Friday Aug. 1 @ Tia Betty Blue’s. Not a realtor.

Me: salad-eating, animal-rescuing architect from the "hood." You: photographer, dog loving, vegetarian/vegan. Wondering how we exchanged all that but not names, what you photograph and if you like waffles? View ad

Girl at Casino (8/11/14)

I saw you on Monday at Santa Ana Star Casino, near the back area by "The Stage" around 1:302:30pm. You were wearing glasses and with a woman I assume was your mother. I was walking up to a machine when we made eye contact for a split second before I looked away … I wanted to talk to you but wasn't thinking. You are beautiful and I can't stop thinking about you! If you see this please respond; maybe we can go out to a casino or have dinner sometime and get to know each other :) View ad
