Missed Connections – Hook Hall Wine Festival! and Hiking at Annapolis Rock

“Dear PoPville,

Missed connection! I met a guy hiking with his dad at Annapolis Rock in Maryland last Sunday afternoon (January 23rd). He was on the taller side, with reddish/brown hair and beard. He mentioned he lives in Capitol Hill and he took some great photos of my friend and me in front of the view. I was the Asian woman wearing a tan furry jacket and a grey hat with a yellow pom-pom. He and his dad very kindly offered to drive us back to our car since it was getting late and the trail was iced over. I probably should’ve taken them up on their offer and/or asked for his number but, after two years of the pandemic, I don’t remember how to meet people in the wild (literally) anymore! Would be great to grab coffee sometime.”


“Not sure if this counts as a missed connection but I (sorta) met a very cute guy at Hook Hall wine festival last Saturday.

He’s tall, blonde, and was wearing a brown hoodie. He spoke to my friends for a bit after they helped a girl who had gotten sick, and then very kindly tipped my friend’s band, but I didn’t work up the courage to talk to him myself until his group was on their way out the door. I’m the brunette that was wearing a grey sweater/black skirt and holding a Shiba Inu. Would love to get a second chance to introduce myself!”

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