Update: “I wish I had better news but I’m in a long-term relationship. Warm regards to your reader, however, who has found one of the best spots for a pandemic stroll.”

“Dear PoPville,

I was taking a walk through Rock Creek Cemetery on the evening of Friday, February 5 and was surprised to see a handsome stranger in a baseball cap and black leather jacket also walking alone. I was going to pass by when he stopped to ask me a question. I was feeling shy and wearing headphones so I answered briefly and kept walking, but wish I had been friendlier and asked his name! He may have just been making conversation, but in the off chance he found the girl in the green coat sweet, I hope we can reconnect for a distanced meet cute! If that was you, tell me what you asked me about!”

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 passed missed connections, some have been made and when possible I’ll try to update when/if more are made.
