“Dear PoPville,

There was a couple and their friend at Lucky Buns around 8pm on Wednesday night with two ridiculously cute dogs. The single friend was *very* cute.

To the guy in the red shirt: I was too nervous to ask your name, but I did ask your dog’s breed. Your dog, a whippet if I remember correctly, was delightful, but I have a feeling you’re even better.

If you don’t remember: I was wearing a yellow shirt and jeans, and with my couple friends.”


“You were the handsome guy sitting on the patio of Le Dip on Monday, October 4th, having what seemed to be an underwhelming dinner date, and I was the brunette on the other side of the window sitting at a long table with friends.

You caught my eye again and again, and I would love to properly meet over a cocktail if you’re interested and unattached!”


“I was waiting for a very late meeting to show up at Emissary on 20th Street last Wednesday (Sept 29). I asked if you were Garrett and you said “No but I wish I was”. The cleverness threw me and I uncharacteristically froze for a moment. The pandemic has put a damper on my coffeeshop flirting skills, but would love to meet for an espresso.”
