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. We connected MC Nolan yesterday!

“Dear PoPville,

On Saturday night (probably Sunday morning tbh) around 18th Street in AdMo, my friend and I were walking home in the rain and you asked if we knew any late-night food spots that weren’t pizza. You said you were in law school at George Mason and didn’t know the area as well. My mind drew a total blank otherwise I would’ve suggested El Tamarindo!

Hopefully, you’ll see this and we can go sometime.”


“I was in the elevator in my building in Cleveland Park on Tuesday night (around 9pm) and was riding in it with a guy named Sebastian. We talked about thru-hiking (neither of us have) because I was wearing a shirt from Acadia National Park.

I don’t ordinarily do this, but I wish I had made a move, I’m pretty shy. He was going to the 2nd floor and I was going to the third.”


“On Tuesday, August 17th, I went out salsa dancing at Añejo grill on 14th street. I danced a few times with a cute guy who works in healthcare, but didn’t get a chance to get his number before my next dance.

I was wearing a hot pink tank top and black denim shorts. You were wearing jeans, a blue shirt and a Maryland mask. I had so much fun dancing and chatting with you and wish I had asked for your number. I would love to get a drink sometime!”


“On Saturday 8/14 around 5, I sat down at the bar at Sospeso to grab an early dinner. The only other person sitting at the bar was a beautiful woman with black hair and brown eyes, reading a book with a colorful cover and drinking coffee. We made passing glances at one another as we both chatted with the bartender and made a few friendly comments to one another when the bartender mentioned wanting to leave it all behind and start a new life in Mexico. She brought up that she had recently gotten back to DC after a few months of taking care of her grandfather, which I found very endearing. She left to meet up with her friends so I didn’t get the chance to chat some more (or the nerve to ask for her number.)

So, sweet Sospeso girl, if you’re reading this- your next coffee (or cocktail) is on me.”
