  • Senator Barner aka Jeffrey is that you!?

    W4M on the Brown Line

    Excuse me Senator Barner is that you? My friend and I ran into you when the Brown line stopped running. You took the bus with us and we were in that horrible elevator that smelled like the CTA aka 'urine' You also helped me perfect my handshake which to mention is now how the kids say 'on point'! If you know what I'm talking about and you're reading this getting every inside joke I'm getting at then reply with your real last name so we know it's you. We looked on FB but no luck for us! Catch ya on the flip side Senator Barner!

  • Jamming

    W4M on the Brown Line

    You got on at the Western stop this morning and had your earbuds in. First I'd like to thank you for keeping the music at a respectable level. You were dancing and looked like you could really move. Thought it was cute. I'm the tall white girl that had on a dress with my hair up and glasses on. You had a black coat, thick frame glasses and jeans on. If I ever see you again in will ask for lessons. ;)

  • Considerate guy in white car

    W4M at Milwaukee & Chicago on the south bound #56 bus

    Just to be honest, we were both in cars but close to this stop. There had just been an incident and you rolled down the window in the car next to me to see if I was okay. You didn't have to stop, or be that kind, but I appreciated it. I was a little in shock, but I remember you had a great smile. Maybe we can run into each other again?

  • Sweet and kind lady in blue skirt that shared her umbrella with me.....

    M4W on the Brown Line

    You are a sweetheart for sharing your umbrella. You were wearing a blue skirt and I wish I could have said more. I was waiting for you to come up the platform for the loop but as my train approached I sighted you on the opposite platform heading towards Kimball. This is a longshot but I would love to grab a coffee sometime. So here goes nothing: message me at 773.263.9197 if you happen to come across this :)

  • Girl wearing white dress walking out of 4th Presb. Church(across from water tower) 2 Saturdays ago

    M4W at Michigan & Chicago on the north bound #125 bus

    You are the MOST beautiful woman I've ever seen! I saw you walking out of 4th Presb. Church a week ago this past Saturday. You are blonde and were wearing a stunning all white dress walking next to a guy in a tux. People were stopping and standing next to the church saying how beautiful you looked! We locked eyes and you got the biggest smile on your face! I felt an instant connection! the way you smiled and were glowing makes me certain you felt it too. Before I could say anything to you, you and the tux guy got into a horse drawn carriage and were whisked away! I am 6'2, fit, w/ brown hair & was wearing a blue shirt, khakis, & a camel hair blazer. I'd love 2 meet up and get to know you!

  • U: bearded; bald & cute with glasses. Sat next to me in priority seats, our legs brushed.

    M4M on the Red Line

    I was sitting across from a girl chatting about grandmothers. U entered and eventually sat next to me in priority seats. U asked how my Sunday was. I said I wanted a drink at sidetrack or big chicks. I should've asked if you wanted to join me. You had your glasses on then proceeded to switch them out with sunglasses. U said you lived in edgewater near the new whole foods. Our legs brushed against each other the entire trip then I got off at Addison and waved and smiled at you after exiting the train. I really hope you read these! :)

  • Tall man with a hipster hair cut, glasses, and Starbucks cup- red line

    W4M on the Red Line

    You got on at the Addison redline stop a little before noon today. You're tall, thin, blond hair, black skinny jeans, and I think a red and black plaid button-up under your jacket, with glasses and pierced ears. You were wearing a patterned scarf that you took off when you got on. You had a dark backpack with you. You ended up sitting across from me, but I was too shy to talk to you. I was the girl with the bright magenta rain boots, black earmuffs, purple mittens, and coffee in my hand. My bright blue/green backpack was on my lap. I got off at the Chicago stop and wished you had gotten off too...

  • I was in cowboy boots, we were eyeing in the reflection of the window

    M4M on the Red Line

    I'm bearded and was wearing cowboy boots and standing, you were scruffy and sitting. We both got on at North and Clybourn and we're making eye contact in the reflection of the Windows and smiling. Our view got blocked so we both found a way to continue eyeing each other. I had to get off at Addison and thought you should follow, but unfortunately you stayed on :( I really thought you would follow to get my name and number. Sorry I didn't make a move!

  • you were going to eat did not join me on the 70. wanted to tell you how much I am attracted to you.

    M4W at Division & Oakley on the east bound #70 bus

    Tammy I think you have the most beautiful smile and I love how we flirt and I want to touch your hands again and ask to see you and stay at your place...maybe it will work out that way. I missed you on the Division bus tonight but I look forward to seeing you again. Sometimes I need an escape from my daily life and share something with someone new if only for a short time. As Dave Matthews said, tomorrow go back to being friends. Just for an evening...

  • Locked eyes as you exited downtown

    W4W on the Blue Line

    As you got up to exit, I looked up from my Redeye, thought she's amazing, then looked back down. I looked up again in my black trench coat with 'Locs to find you engaging in staring at me as well. I closed the paper and we did this intense eye contact & you got off. I looked up too late to see your fairer skin, long brown/black hair & shades exiting. Perhaps I should've ditched my train to talk to you that day. I haven't seen you since that day more than a year ago
