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. 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?”
