Missed Connection: Dog walking in Petworth

photo by chasingmailboxes

“Dear PoPville,

On Tuesday November 30th around 3:30pm I (blonde hair in ponytail wearing black leggings and a big red plaid coat) was walking a big fluffy white dog on Spring Rd NW between 10th and Rock Creek Church. A very cute man

(not wearing anything super descriptive, darkish jacket and pants and maybe a beanie? kinda looked like Jake Gyllenhaal lol that’s the best I can do description-wise) was walking toward me. It seemed like he smiled at me from a distance but I got nervous and looked down at my phone. Then when he got closer I looked up again and he was still looking and smiling! I kind of smiled back but was caught off guard and holding a bag of dog poop so did not engage. But if he’s single and wasn’t just smiling at the dog (who is, to be fair, much cuter than me) I’d love to get coffee or a drink!”

Ed. Note: If this is you, please email [email protected] so I can put you in touch with OP.

For those curious about past missed connections, many have been made and when possible I’ll try to update when/if more are made.
