Missed Connection – 12th and U about 6pm on U Street

Photo by PoPville flickr user Jeremy Kirkpatrick

“Dear PoPville,

I walked by a guy last night on U Street who smiled at me and we both did that rare walking-away-look-back-double-take and I’m kicking myself for not turning back to talk to him! On the off chance that there’s a place people actually still seek out missed connections that is not a dating app, I thought I’d try PoPville.

Think he was wearing a gray shirt with glasses and it was around 12th and U at about 6pm.

If not I think I will have to live with the memory of the feeling of making real human eye contact with a stranger in this age of technology.”

Ed. Note: If this is you, please email [email protected] so I can put you in touch with OP. PoPville is not affiliated with either party, please proceed with any potential connection at your own risk using caution as you would any online encounter. For those curious about past missed connections, some have been made and when possible I’ll try to update when/if more are made.
