Had a missed connection today (Monday) at Vida on U Street:
Him: red tank, probably 6’0/6’1, black, lifting on the third floor
Me: 5’11, red hair, grey stringer with red sports bra and black leggings on the rower
Kept looking at each other but you left before I could catch you.
Want to lift together sometime?”
I was at the Dupont Safeway at approximately 5:30 pm on Sunday, May 16. A guy asked if he wanted to get coffee as I left the store, and I declined because I was a tad out of it. Probably should have said yes.
I walked down 17th with my groceries and he scootered off across Corcoran.
Me: Man in late 20s, purple sweatshirt, glasses, black mask.
You: Man standing near the bike rack outside Safeway”
I (F30s) had a potential missed connection Sunday, 5/16 around 1:30pm at Trader Joe’s on Florida Ave. The store was pretty busy and I ended up bumping into a guy in the aisle. I said “excuse me” and we briefly made eye contact. Coincidentally, I ended up in the long line behind him (it was wrapped around to the opposite side of the store) and noticed he kept glancing back at me a few times like he wanted to speak. I had been running errands all day and was dressed pretty frumpy and, admittedly, was a little embarrassed to make direct eye contact back. I didn’t see him after checking out and wished we could have actually spoken! Not sure if I was misreading things but thought it was worth a shot!”
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.

Come solve a crime that took place in Takoma Park 130 years ago!
HouseMouse Books and Vintage is excited to announce the debut of Escape the Bookshop II, our new limited-run escape room experience. Escape the Bookshop II is a unique group puzzle game that is based on a real crime that took place in Takoma Park around 130 years ago. It is designed and created by HouseMouse to be played in our atmospheric little bookshop. This is not your typical corporate escape room and makes for a memorable evening out with friends or family!
Bookings are now open for game dates in January through April 2024. The game generally takes place Wednesday through Saturday at 8 PM but special arrangements can be made upon request. It is designed to be played by a group of 3 to 6 people (ages 16+) and lasts for one hour. No prior escape room experience is needed to enjoy the game.
