“Dear PoPville,

On Saturday, May 16th around 4:30/5 I was sitting on a bench in the shade in Logan Circle and listening to the brass band play. There was a cute guy sitting on the bench next to me in a blue button down shirt and jeans with the cuffs rolled up. He was writing in a notebook. I was the brunette in a dress with a blue and pink pattern.

At one point he turned to me and said he didn’t live in the neighborhood and was wondering if I could recommend a good bar. I suggested the patio at Lost and Found and gave approximate directions on how to get there. I kind of wish I had been invited to join him for that drink! If you see this, I would love to show you more of my neighborhood!”

“Dear PoPville,

I was at the Fairmont hotel on M St. on mother’s day. I was in the courtyard with a friend, my foldable bike stashed near our table. A stylish man interrupted my friend and I to comment on my bike. I was caught off guard so chatted with him about my bike for half a minute before he went back to his table. I looked like he was out with his parents maybe, for mother’s day brunch. Once I left, after catching up with my friend, it occurred to me that I should have engaged with that man more. He was stylish, friendly, and bold. I regret but engaging in conversation with him more, but asking his name, but asking if he’d be interested in taking more about bikes or other interests. Would you post a missed connection about the stylish man who commented on my bike in the Fairmont courtyard on mother’s day? I would love to have the opportunity to talk with him more! Thank you!”

“Dear PoPville,

I met the dreamiest guy (okay maybe an overstatement, but definitely handsome) at the S Street dog park last Sunday (5/9). He had a cute goldendoodle named Charlie and lives in Columbia Heights. We chatted for a while (don’t remember about what). He was cute (and seemingly straight? And maybe single?). I was wearing a blue tank top with brown curly hair with my dog Ollie. Do guys even read these? If so, let me know if you want to go to the park again sometime!”

“Dear PoPville,

Saturday evening (5/15) around 7:30pm, I (mid-20s female, short hair with bangs and wearing a yellow mask) was at the entrance of Indigo waiting for my roommate (dining at the restaurant) to come out and give me our spare apartment keys as I had locked myself out. As I stood waiting feeling a little flustered, I believe there was a missed connection with a tall man (brick red colored shoes is all I recall) waiting in line with his friend to get inside the restaurant. We made a fair amount of (masked) eye-contact – not sure if he was concerned I was trying to cut the line or if he recognised me from somewhere but as I was about to let him know I was merely waiting, my roommate had come out. I definitely should have said something but here’s hoping we get a chance to connect for real!”

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