“Dear PoPville,

Saturday night we both found ourselves on an (almost) empty metro car riding from the airport home. You were in a green flannel, I, an orange dress.

The train car was empty, save our one fellow returning traveler who situated herself a ways away, but you sat on the bench next to mine. We rode in curious silence from Reagan to what turned out to be both our stops, but I couldn’t muster the courage quickly enough to ask your name (and number). I disembarked and walked behind you, but took the first escalator while you kept going to the next across the station. Before it was too late, I glanced over my shoulder to see you doing the same and decided I couldn’t let that trip be the end of this little meet cute.

If this is you and you are single and equally interested–I’d love to introduce myself formally and get to know you over a cup of coffee or glass of wine sometime. Let me know. :)
