“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.”
