All that and more below.

Ellwood Thompson w4w

you were wearing a ‘no new pipelines’ shirt and lighting a cigarette as you walked out with a juice and two canvas bags filled with produce.
I was trying to unlock my bike without dropping my yoga mat or grocery bags. you said ‘nice sticker’. if this sounds like you, tell me what the sticker was. if this sounds like your ideal meet cute, tell me your personal contradictions and let’s recreate the moment.

En’Nonation Concert at the Chesterfield Fair!

I think we met eye contact several times, I could not keep my eyes off you! We were at the Concert at the fair and you had on jeans and black blouse, and danced most of the night, I think you are sexy and very classy and beautiful baby, would love to meet you? We was sitting not but a few feet from you, what was I wearing? Would you like to talk and maybe meet sometime? This was on Saturday night around 8 pm!

Striped Dress by The Jefferson (Downtown)

I seen you walking to 711 today at 12:15 you have short brown hair and you had a black striped dress on. Not to mention you had a killer tan. You may even be darker than me. Wow. You are hot. You turned up and went down Franklin Street I wanted to say something but chickened out. LOL. You are one very hot woman. Tell me what color shirt I had on. I know this is a longshot but who knows.

Thank you for saying I had a cool shirt at Brown’s Island/Belle Isle (Brown’s Island/Belle Isle in Richmond)

I was walking with my friend around Brown’s Island/Belle Isle around 4 pm Saturday and you said our shirts were cool but I didn’t realize you were talking to me so I didn’t say thanks but then I realized you were talking to me but you were already too far away and I felt like a jackass for not saying thanks so if you see this: thanks for saying my shirt was cool I really appreciate it Keep up the good work,

Your pal,

The guy with the cool shirt and the friend who had a cool shirt too

Guy in Marshall’s Parking Lot – Henrico (Henrico) hide this posting

So, I was coming out of the Shoe Carnival and happened to look up to see you smiling at me. I thought you were a really cute guy and you had a nice smile. That and you kinda look like Markus from Love and Hip Hop Hollywood lol that’s a good thing. I probably had a stupid look on my face because I got nervous and jumped into my car. I wish I had asked for your number. Maybe you’ll see this, maybe you won’t.
