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. The Dog dad MC was found, but sadly is unavailable.

“Dear PoPville,

I was waiting for friends outside of Agora on 17th on Saturday, 8/14 around 7:45 and we caught each other’s eyes as you walked by and then you came back and introduced yourself as Nolan (with cute glasses). I was the guy in green shorts and a black patterned buttondown who was V flustered and didn’t realize until you walked away that I never gave you my number. Trying to now!”


“Possible missed connection Sunday (8/15) at Junction Bakery & Bistro of Capitol Hill around 2:30 pm. You and your pals (along with a very contented baby) were enjoying brunch while I was sitting through a date. It came to a natural end and we left, when you flagged me down that my date had forgotten his sunglasses. I neglected to take them, not wanting to create reason for us to see each other again when that connection had not felt particularly strong. Which I said and you laughed in understanding. Then I got in my car and you waved and I honked for lack of anything else clever to do. But YOU! Your wave, that smile, your fun friend group. Want to grab a drink and discuss dating foibles?”
