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. 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.
