Missed Connections – U Street Vida, Dupont Safeway and Trader Joe’s on Florida Ave

Photo by Joanna Hiatt Kim

“Dear PoPville,

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?”


“Dear PoPville,

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”


“Dear PoPville,

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.
