I saw you at an interview at work and was smitten immediately. We have shyly begun talking and so far we both love vanilla ice cream, sarcasm and animals. You have told me that there will be a top hat of tricks on our first date, and I can't wait to see them! We are both terribly awkward, but maybe it's just me. I want to meet your rat and have you destroy my life with scary movies. Double vanilla ice cream and scary movie Friday night?
Watching Still for You
With your swift soft words, your sweet attention stopped my shallow steps mid-stride. I've been singing to myself until years ago when I saw your words. I wondered if it was me at all. l still am waiting, watching for you to come to me …
Where Did You Go Route 66 Girl???
You: Black-rimmed glasses, pretty smile … where did you go? I never got the chance of taking you out!
I hadn't gone in to gamble for quite some time, but I have been going and I see no one like you! If you read this, please reply. You will be surprised to know who I am.
We got in line at Satellite at the same time, but I insisted you go first. You have long wavy strawberry blonde hair, and you were shockingly beautiful. I bet you still are. On the way out I held the door, and we were parked right next to one another. Did you feel a spark too?
The Lady with the Lion Tail (Winning Coffee)
It was Sunday (the 12th of May). You were wearing some rock-out Hot Topic type clothes. You had some lion tail attached to your pants.
I was wearing a green shirt. I had glasses and a red beard. After asking what with the tail, you allowed me to sit at your table and chat with you. Before you left, we introduced ourselves. You went inside and I left.
I really liked talking to you. You were really smart. I would like to meet you again and chat some more.
Angel At Starbucks
Where: Starbucks. When: Saturday, May 4. Me: shaved head, reading a book about nuclear weapons. You: gorgeous female, reading the Bible. You introduced yourself and we spoke for a few minutes. You loitered around waiting for me to ask you out. I was hypnotized by you, unable to move or speak. I will be at the same location, same time, next Saturday, eagerly hoping you will be there.
Walks like an Ocelot
Saturday, May 11th, at the Radio Shack on North 4th about 4. You are a petite lady with shorter red/brown hair, khakis and a darker top. I'm tall with gray hair and mustache. You walked through the store on your way out, eyes that covered everywhere, a smile that the Mona Lisa could only wish for and a walk that was very subtle and awakened every male molecule I possess. I lost every mental process watching you leave! Shocked wishes to see thee over a cup which would get cold.
We chat for the spilt moment as you ring up my items. Hopefully soon I will treat you out to DQ.
Cat Scratch Fever
Ah, my Golden Lynx, your love is like a cat's paw: soft, warm, fuzzy, but oh, those retractable, razor-sharp claws! I'm so sorry we ran out of time. I knw we both tried. I'll be back in two weeks. I have something serious I want to ask you but I didn't want to do it over the phone or through e-mail. Wait for me, Cat Woman.
I was going north, you were going south. You touched your lips, blew me a kiss, and we both rode our separate ways. I didn't stop because I was too focused on my training, and was hoping to catch you on the way back … you made my day :)
I saw you very tactfully, diplomatically and discretely persuade an oral surgeon-in-training not to use non-sterile instruments on me. For that, I am grateful beyond words. May G*d, the Universe, what have you, grant you LOTS of brownie points, and your heart's desire for that and other very good deeds I'm sure you perform!
A very appreciative and healthy patient who hopes to stay that way for long time to come.
I danced with you in Nob Hill, Ms. Mojito from Baltimore
I met you Friday night in Nob Hill. You are a great dancer, fun-going, technical-minded sister from MD. Wish I could have gotten a chance to say goodbye, and hopefully I will see you again.
Are You a Time Traveler?
You: Mysterious, Neil Gaiman-hair, vintage-y motorcycle, white accordian on your back, looking stoic as you made your way east up Lomas on St. Patrick's Day. We: Ladies in a yellow Bug, wondering if we just spotted a time traveler … or a Time Lord?!? What music do you play? Maybe we can hang out sometime, in a friend capacity. We find you intriguing! Safe travels, my friend …
So Angry. So Buff. Why is it that you always whine? When will we be allowed to have our lemonade stand? How many pictures of your hand have you taken? How many scones have you seriously eaten? Last, but not least, do you hate me even more now?
We passed each other on our bikes Friday night on Yale just after 1 a.m. Bundled up against the cold, your tiny hello has been echoing in me ever since.
Blonde Boy Angel Sent From Above
My friend and I are already seated on the Lomas bus when all of a sudden an angel sits across from us with the light beaming down on his heavenliness as we sit in awe. We turn to each other and smile wondering, who he is? Who are you, long haired blondie from above?
Sexy Saturday Server at Winning
You: Charming server at Winning with long curly hair.
Me: Captivated bY your irresistible smile.
You made my Americano with lots of room on Saturday. You think there's enough room in your heart for a girl like me?
You Have a Sweet Smile and a Tattoo on Your Cheek
You looked so interesting and kind. You were behind me in line at the Co-op. It didn't occur to me to say hello. Wish I'd introduced myself.
We caught glances a few times, but you were with your family and I with mine. I wish I could have talked to you, but maybe under different circumstances we can?
Freckled Strawberry Blonde
I saw you at the Coronado Sunflowers driving a dusty black Nissan. You have eyes the color of the ocean and a really great smile! You had out of state plates, but I hope I can catch you again to ask you out. Coffee and gyros maybe?
Stop, drop and roll was never better advice when one's heart is aflame. Its chromium valves, its machined aorta smoldering after just a single glimpse of you pushing your cart up and down the aisles, one wobbly wheel in front, your handbag in the place for kids to ride. Grass-stained blue jeans just seared my lowered eyes …
Menaul Savers Feb 5th
You: Tall guy with dark hair and a beard, in line at Savers.
Me: Tall girl with long dark hair, waiting for her friend to check out.
You kept looking at me, but we were both too shy to say hello. Wish we had!
Nightmare Hippy Girl
Oh beautiful hippy girl of my patchouli nightmares. You fill my jaded hipster head with flowers and pot smoke and that million dollar crooked smile. I want to hold your hand or something equally as cute. I know you aren't available, but that's ok. Just let me enjoy our occasional spontaneous coffee dates and if the stars align one day, maybe we can be. My angry heart could use a little sunshine.
At Lowes Supermarket 12th St.
Today I saw you by the organic aisle. You: Very handsome man, dark hair, wearing a grey jacket, brown shoes. You caught my eye and my heart. I tried to make eye contact by the drinks section but you were focused on your shopping. I was wearing a gray jacket and black slacks buying ginger ale. You were driving black pickup and I was in Honda Civic. Hope you read this and maybe we go for coffee??
Wal-Mart at San Mateo & Central
I was standing in line behind you at the checkout aisle in the early afternoon Monday. You: Tall, handsome. We made eye contact, smiled. Me: Speechless … wishing I had said something.
Keri, the clouds parted and the Kingdom of Heaven was opened when I looked upon your sheer and overwhelming beauty. What grace you show, what strength, what remarkable depth of love you exemplify. KLG, you have surpassed all my expectations of beauty and love, and now, I know God's love, I know Heaven and I know an angel … all because of you. I love you, forevermore, my love! Jeremiah
O’Niell's Old Bone Grinder and Pub
Saw you, with your secret zombie eyes, grinding bones with back bar baseball bats meant for better drunks than us. Me, twitching bleary-eyed blood-drinking nighttime ghoul, chasing subway tunnels south into Mexico cities. You asked me how often I sail the Rio Grande from head to mouth. Not in a thousand years, I answered, but with you maybe once more… my sweet bone-grinding zombie eyes.
Southwest Flight January 11 to Tucson and Cali
Architecture is hot, you were hotter! I've got the land, you have the box, mmmmm yummy combo. Reach out and let's …
Lowe's Market at 12th & Lomas Sat. 1/26 around 6:15 p.m. You were wearing the prettiest face paint and you had the nicest way about you. We were in the wine aisle together. You found the Red Velvet for me. I (feeling foolish, moments later) was kicking myself for leaving without at least an introduction … at best a way to get in touch. I even circled back to see if you were still there. Alas.
I Saw You Last Valentine's Day
I will not go out on Valentine's Day anymore. It is an especially cruel day on which to be without one's greatest Love. The pain usually reserved for some of us on that day is greatly magnified if you happen to see that one person in the company of another. It is not only an instant visual reminder, branded unto your soul, that though close in proximity, your hearts will forever beat far away from each other, but that you never truly know the dark recesses of some people's hearts.
Dive Into My Heart
You: UK-style sexy in a velour scarf and leather jacket, chain smoking Marlbolo Reds and drinking Marble at Bricklight Dive.
Me: sipping hard cider from a straw and staring into those lovely eyes. Be my early Valentine?
I saw you at the party last Friday night. You strode in like a lion with your eyes blazing bright and all the pretty women turned to look at you. But can they know as I do all that you’ve been through?
It was a karaoke frenzy off of MLK and Cedar. Me: all black, red lips, sang Snoop Dogg when I walked in. You: glasses and a shirt with trucks all over it, sang the School House Rock song 'I'm just a Bill'. I gushed the whole night and kinda lost my words. Your tall friend asked if I was Persian. Matt, I think? I left for a bit and you were gone when I got back. 6 months and I regret not introducing myself. You're still more than just a bill in my memory. Coffee? Tea? A chit-chat, perhaps?
Like Mother, Like Daughter
To the ill-mannered woman and her ill-mannered young daughter on the express line at the Carlisle NE Wal-Mart on January 17 just before noon. You: portly, dark shoulder-length hair and dark-rimmed glasses. Your spawn: dark hair, light eyes, pale with ruddy cheeks. Allowing your daughter to point to and laugh at elderly, disabled human beings is not something to approve of and join with your daughter. You are a very poor parent and it shows from your daughter's behavior in public.
Rare Silverware Shopper at Thrift Town
My nervousness probably made me look like this to you that day.
You were the stunning zaftig clone of a young Annette O'Toole ("Cat People" & Clark Ken’s Mom in "Smallville") complete with lavender complexion, freckles and beautiful pony tail. I clumsily attempted to talk to you and invite you to lunch across the street at the Chinese restaurant. You, though, were busy texting your exciting "find" to someone. By the time I had checked out, you were driving out. Lunch?
Longboarder on the Rapid Ride 1/15/13
Me: short, leather jacket, reading. You: tall, longboard, talking to a friend on the 777. I got on at UNM, you got off at San Mateo. We made eye contact a few times, and as you passed me getting off the bus you told me I was beautiful. I just want to say thank you, you have no idea how much that meant to me. You made my day. I wish I knew your name.
Petite Blonde Smith's @ Academy
You: enchanting, petite blonde lady shopping at Smith's (Academy and Wyoming NE) on Saturday, January 12. We bumped into each other several times and exchanged glances and broad smiles. I was very taken with your lustrous blond hair, your expressive eyes and your pouty lips. Didn't we have moments, or am I just out of practice? You struck me as the kind of woman who's open to new and exciting people and things in her life. Click below and let's meet for coffee, tea, lunch, dinner …
Joey … Could You Ever Love Me?
It has been a few months since we worked at the call center together, I tried to make my feelings known to you then, but you were involved with someone already.
Months had passed by without you in my life.
Thank goodness for Christmas, when I ran into you in the men's shoe dept at JC Penny's in the mall. I want you to know that I would love you, you would be my everything. Joey please verify my love. sw
You're short, stout and low to the ground. We loved running in the Bosque together. You've been my best friend for years, always willing to embark on a mission! You ran away on New Year's Eve and now everyone is searching for you. Please come home little long-haired Chihuahua Pomeranian Mix. We all miss you!
Leftovers Guy at Elephant Bar
We kept making eye contact the entire night and you asked my cousin about me in the bathroom. I was the Mexican with the red pants. You had the most beautiful eyes I've seen. Thank you for helping us out when we were trying to take a picture. It was so brave of you to come back and talk to us when you forgot your leftovers. I only wish I would of been as brave, not shy in front of my family, and gone after you to give you my number. I hope we run into each other again.
Beer Underground 1/3/13
You: Short(er than me), dark skin, beautiful brown hair and a cool purse. Me: Tall, white, old black fleece with some turquoise. I was talking with friends all night and suddenly you were gone. Maybe I'll see you at the next gathering?
You: Salt-and-pepper haired guy at Trader Joe's. I looked up and there you were, looking at me with those beautiful green eyes. You made me melt, I didn't know what to say, but I wanted to say, "I need to know you."
Me: Attractive woman with long brown hair, in black yoga pants, brown top and black long sweater.
Please Answer. I wanted to say something there but was too shy. Please let me know if you felt the same spark.
Paul, checker at Albertsons On Wyoming and San Antonio
I like your curly hair, beautiful blue eyes and enchanting smile. I don't know that I made much of an impression, but the guy in front of me was having lots of trouble counting his cash. You wished me a happy new year, and I wished I could have some coffee with you. Are you available?
That might make for a happy new year. ;-)
Cute Woman at Recycling Center Behind Carlisle Wal-Mart
You had bobbed, very light-colored, curly hair. You wished me a Merry Christmas before your friend drove away. I was the white guy with brown hair and sunglasses who waved. I wish we could spend time getting to know each other.
Portishead - Glory Box
We met, we had fun, we connected so strong, so quickly, and then it was over. The chemistry was there but your significant other said we cannot be. You said the word "love" and I agree. If only some other time and some other place could you be with me. I will dream of that day for the rest of my life. Saying goodbye was the hardest thing I've had to do. So, come find me in my dreams where we can be together. I will be there, waiting. (Yikes! if you know what I mean…)
I've loved you since we met freshman year of high school. 10 years and several choices led us far from each other. You still have my heart and to this day appear in my dreams. I hope that you are happy this Christmas. :)
You were playing Mancala in the waiting room. I was intrigued by the game and you said someday you'd teach me if you ever ran into me again. Thanks for your kind offer, I hope to see you again, but I had to change my regular appointment time!
Cute Guy at the Pit Graduation
You were the cute guy in the striped zip-up hoodie and I was the girl taking photos. We kept making eye contact.
Cutie Cashier at Trader Joe's
Dear unbelievably handsome, brown-haired (that you just recently cut all off), chile pepper-tattooed cashier at Trader Joe's,
I just want to say that your smile is unbelievable! It stops me in my tracks every single time. Please don't ever stop smiling because I'm sure that you've made more than just my day with it!
Nice-looking Native American Woman by Sunglass Hut
12/7/12 at Cottonwood Mall. I saw you walk by a couple of times. I was the tall male with dark hair wearing a cap. You were a nice-looking Native American woman that smiled when I saw you. I tried to find you after leaving the store, but did not see you again. Would like to meet you and talk, perhaps at the mall.
La Montanita Co-op North Valley
We nearly bumped into each other near the bread shelves and you said “hi” instead of “excuse me.” I said hi back. Our eyes got stuck just long enough to tell me you might be interested. When I checked out, we met eyes once more, and you gave me a little nod. Maybe we'll meet again randomly, maybe not. But you can make it happen right now if you want to.
Gibson Street Stare
You: dark hair, nose ring, older, in a light yellow Mercedes. Me: blond with two children with me in a station wagon. We couldn't stop looking at each other as we drove east on Gibson. I want to find out why. You do too. Contact me.
Had a nice walk with you from Washington to Carlisle on Saturday night … where did you go? Would love to get together to finish our talk and have another Nob Hill stroll.
Reddish Hair, Striped Shirt, Cute Hat and Kid
Saw you at the mall 11/26. You were with your kid and grandparents(?). Me: solo guy eating with hat on. Sorry I couldn’t stop staring. Would like to get to know you.
2 Yrs Ago, Flight from PHX
We sat next to each other. I thought we had a great conversation. Can’t stop thinking about it. We never exchanged numbers. Although you did mention that you worked out at Defined Fitness. Do you remember me?
