Ed. Note: If any of these are 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.

“Dear PoPville,

I (man in his mid-20s) had a missed connection at the outdoor seating at Tatte bakery and cafe on Connecticut Ave on Tue, April 20 in the afternoon. There was a girl who was wearing a sheer blue top and had dyed part of her hair green and who looked to be studying. We were making a fair amount of eye-contact and I thought I caught her smile at me at one point, but she left before I could muster up the courage to say something. I was wearing a blue denim shirt over a colorful tee and was working on a laptop.

I would love to get coffee at Tatte or just about anywhere else if you’re free.”

“Dear PoPville,

I was working out in Meridian Hill Park Saturday (4/17) morning around 11am and this FINE man in a gray t-shirt was running up and down the stairs making ~*eyes*~ on each lap. I was the brunette in blue leggings and a green sports bra debating running after you!”

“Dear PoPville,

On Saturday, April 17, I was at Bluejacket in Navy Yard and kept making eye contact with this cute guy at the table near us. He was blonde and wearing a Callaway golf pullover, shorts, and socks with USA slides. At one moment during brunch, he got up and did his golf swing (lol). He left Bluejacket with his friend around 2 pm. If you see this, I would love to go golfing with you!

Sincerely, The girl sitting across from you!”
