“Dear PoPville,

I was in line [Wednesday], November 18, to get a COVID test at Judiciary Square from about 9-11am (in the FRIGID cold) and a guy caught my eye standing a few places in line behind me. Although he had a mask on and was bundled up, I picked up on his general demeanor and gathered that he was a genuinely good person. Unfortunately, given the circumstances (trying to stay warm/alive, 30-foot distance between us, etc) I wasn’t able to break the ice with him – pun intended. I’m hoping I can make contact with him and see how accurate my Good Guy radar is.

He was ~6′ tall, white, had jeans on and black/navy coat – maybe around 30yo. I’m a 5’9″, white woman, 30yo. I had black leggings, a navy coat and a black headband on with my hair in a bun. Here goes nothing!”

Ed. Note: If this is you, please email [email protected] so I can put you in touch with OP. For those curious about passed missed connections, some have been made and when possibly I’ll try to update when/if more are made.
