“Dear PoPville,

I, wearing a Cleveland Browns jersey, passed by the most attractive man ever on the corner of I St NW & 5th today (Sunday), 3 Oct around noon. We smiled at one another & he said “go Browns!” I had a mini heart attack at the time and just smiled back, but I 100% regret not asking him to watch the game with me. Hoping you’ll post this & he’ll see it so we can connect!”

“I got on the Greenbelt-bound Yellow Line on Monday, October 4 around 5:30 PM in Crystal City and made frequent eye contact with a tall, blonde girl who also got on the train in Crystal City. I was wearing grey slacks, blueish white shirt, and nikes and you were wearing blue jeans and a white blouse. I was reading a John Grisham book, “A Time for Mercy” and listening to some solid jams; you also were listening to music or possibly a podcast.

We caught ourselves looking at one another several times during the metro ride. You got off at L’Enfant Plaza while I was continuing onto Gallery Place. I didn’t catch your name or your number. Let’s grab coffee or drinks sometime!”

Monday evening (Oct. 4th) around 7pm at Dawson’s Market in Dupont (known as Glen’s until recently), I was in line to pay, wearing black bike shorts, white t-shirt and gold hoop earrings. A very well dressed, tall, dark haired man joined me at the back of the queue. He was wearing a burgundy-ish Ted Baker sports coat and navy trousers. I asked what colour he would call his sports coat and to that he replied a little stunned, but friendlily, “uhh I’m a guy, so I don’t know these things..” Nonetheless, I complimented him on his attire and he seemed appreciative. It didn’t occur to me until I was at the cash paying that I could have kept chatting with him!”
