Missed connections – “made devastating eye contact” and “a striking blonde with some sort of accent” at PQST

“Dear PoPville,

I was standing on the corner of 16th and Irving St, NW waiting to cross the street and a very fit, very shirtless runner made devastating eye contact as he passed me by. I swear he slowed down just a little bit. Would love to exchange tips on preferred running routes etc. etc.”


“I was at PQST (Penn Quarter Sports Tavern) last night and had a funny interaction with a striking blonde with some sort of accent on my way to the bar. I told her that ‘I like your shirt’ and she replied ‘everyone can see your nipples through yours, bold choice.’ We both laughed but I was so taken back by the interaction I never asked for her number. I’m hoping she reads this and wants to connect.”

Ed. Note: If either 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.
