“Dear PoPville,

Can you help me find Cody? Last Sunday, 10/4, I was at Meridian Hill Park and noticed a cute guy packing up his hammock. I thought he left a hammock strap behind, so I chased him down and introduced myself, but I chickened out on asking him for his number before he biked away!

Cody, if you see this, let’s meet in the same spot for a hammock date on Friday, October 9 at 6pm!

OK Meridian Hill/Malcolm X missed connections are closed until next month :)

“Dear PoPville,

I’m looking for the musician at Meridian Hill/Malcolm X Park!

I was going up the middle, main stairs at the park and all the way at the top as you make a right, there was a handsome guy sitting on a bench putting away his music gear. He had a guitar and a small speaker next to him so I think he had been playing earlier. There was eye contact and a smile, but I’m not good in these situations so my smile back was likely lame. About 10 minutes later I had another opportunity as he walked past me again with his gear all packed up, but I panicked, looked away and down at my phone. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

30 minutes ago [around 1:30pm] I was verbally assaulted by a man because I asked him to keep his distance on the sidewalk- he was not wearing a mask [in Meridian Hill/Malcolm X park.] He replied with “What did you say B*tch” and “I will kill you.” I was so scared that I started running. He started running after me. Then I turned around and said, “how dare you say that.” A young man man got in the middle and told him to calm down but I was so scared for my life, I was seeing tunnel vision that I sprinted off – to later collapsed and start crying. I want to report this first, to see if one of your readers was the young man with a dog that tried to stop the attack so that he could maybe help identify the crazy man. Second, to warn other women, to be aware no matter what neighborhood, and no matter what time of day. Anti maskers are among us and they are angry.”

Ed. Note: If you are the man with the dog please email me at [email protected] and I’ll put you in touch with OP.

“Dear PoPville,

Like Love in the Time of Cholera, but less magical realism as we live in DC so lets be real. I was walking at the bottom of Meridian Hill/Malcolm X park; you were sitting alone on the edge of where the last pool would be if it had water in it, wearing a delightful summer dress and had blonde hairish. I was wearing maroon running shorts and a black tee shirt with black hair. You gave me a delightful smile and I returned one. I noticed a look as I looked backed as I walked away and then walked to the top of the fountain. Upon descending back down to wear you were to say hello, you were gone. Love in the Time of Covid-19 still has magic to it, at least I hope.

Poetically yours,
David”
