“Dear PoPville,

I was walking my puppy with my friend at the Washington Monument Friday (2/26) around 4pm and a cute guy came up to us with his white terrier pup Benji. My dog was petrified but Benji was adorable and so sweet. If you’re the 6 foot-ish., blonde man that was wearing a blue jacket I’d love to meet up again w our pups!”

“Dear PoPville,

I had a missed connection on Sunday, February 14 (yes… Valentine’s Day). I (man, late 20s) was in line at Lost City Books around 2 PM and was contemplating which Don Dellio book I should buy. I turned to you to ask if you’d read either. You said no, but you thought you remembered your friend really liking one of them, so I bought that one. Read More

Update: “I wish I had better news but I’m in a long-term relationship. Warm regards to your reader, however, who has found one of the best spots for a pandemic stroll.”

“Dear PoPville,

I was taking a walk through Rock Creek Cemetery on the evening of Friday, February 5 and was surprised to see a handsome stranger in a baseball cap and black leather jacket also walking alone. I was going to pass by when he stopped to ask me a question. Read More

Update: Missed connection married :(

“Dear PoPville,

I was walking down Q Street between 15th and 16th St NW last night around 6:45pm (February 4) and a cute guy walked by with his golden retriever puppy. We chatted about the dog for a minute or two; he said she was three and a half months old and apologized when she tried to pull my scarf off. I wish I’d asked for the guy’s name but didn’t get the chance – here’s hoping he sees this and remembers the girl who stopped to say hi to him and his dog! Read More

“Dear PoPville,

I had a missed connection last Saturday (January 22nd) on 14th Street. I was seated outside at Pearl Dive when a striking man walking by caught my eye. He was maybe 5’8″ – 5’10” and was wearing a gray fur-like coat. Most importantly, he was walking an adorable pug-like dog who was also wearing a fabulous furry coat. I have seen him around before, but have never been able to catch his name! I am a tall, athletic man in my 30’s with a French Bulldog. Would love to meet up for drinks with our pups!”

“Dear Popville,

I had a missed connection this afternoon at the CVS at 14th and W NW. A neighbor in need asked me if I could lend her some money to get somewhere warm today. She needed $75, and I told her I could get her half way there.

When I went inside to the ATM a tall man with brown eyes, probably in his late 30’s, approached me and asked if he could help. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

Are there restaurants/bars that are doing well with following outdoor dining guidelines (e.g. only two or three walls so air still flows) that also have larger tables or spacious enough seating areas for dates with strangers or meetups with friends outside your pod so you can keep your social distance? The days of park hangs appear to be over.”

“Dear PoPville,

I had a missed connection at Trader Joes on Sunday night (1/3) and I’m hoping to find him. I’d lost my wallet and was trying to figure out what to do at the register. A guy in his 20’s with long brown hair and a tan coat saw what was happening, came up, and offered several times to pay for my groceries. Read More
