  • Damen Brown line encounter

    M4W on the Brown Line

    You got on on the Damen brown line stop and I let you get on in front of me. You had dark hair and looked like you maybe just finished working out. You had white earbuds in and kept giving me the most adorable look, which I did my best to return. After the man sitting next to you got up, you offered me a seat. I was getting off, unfortunately. On the platform I kept trying to get myself to turn around and get back on the train and talk to you. I don't know why I didn't... maybe afraid of being late to work, looking like I'm crazy, or making you uncomfortable with all the silent spectators. Before the doors closed I saw you standing there, and you seemed almost disappointed. I hope I see you.

  • Maxine it's Juan we talked after you got me out of a jam at Logan square!

    M4W on the Blue Line

    Hi Maxine, it's Juan I got on the Blue line the other night with my bike and you got me out of a jam at Logan Square when I couldn't exit. We talked for a bit before we parted ways. I would like to see you again. I hope this finds you.

  • Paulina Stop Friends

    W4M on the Brown Line

    Dear Adam--you almost ended up going express to western but instead we chatted. We both got off at Paulina (maybe we're neighbors, at least we're chrome bag friendsies). I should have said something else, but I thought you put your headphones back in. Maybe we'll end up on the same train again :] --The Little Red Headed Girl (aka Martha)

  • You were reading over my shoulder during the 9/15 morning commute on the 134

    W4M at LaSalle & Randolph/Washington on the south bound #134 bus

    You asked me about my nerdy book and I totally froze when I realized you were adorable, with light hair and a blue and white shirt. I told you where I went to school and that I worked in public relations. You got off at the Randolph/Washington stop, I think and said good luck with your career change. I have blonde hair and was wearing a dark purple shirt. Anyway, I kicked myself all the way to work for not being able to come up with any of my normally funny remarks or getting your name. It was early Monday morning, and I was apparently not fully awake! I think missed connections are super sketchy, but you were very sweet and actually seemed worth talking to.

  • 1-up mario mushroom tattoo on foot

    M4W on the Pink Line

    on the pinkline train you got on the polk stop I think. you had short hair and had glasses on. you had a green student ID. you were reading your book with you legs crossed. you looked very cute, aesthetic to my eyes. I couldnt keep my eyes off of you and then you made eye contact with me, you had beautiful eyes. I noticed your 1-up shroom tatt and wondered if you were a gamer chick, I could just imagine u playing a 360 wearing nothing but a thong. im gonna be honest and say you gave me an erection. id like to see you again on the train, ill keep my eyes open. I was seating across from you, I had gray jean shorts on, black shirt on, white tunnels and chucks. please txt me? ;) 312 523 370

  • Petite Blonde

    M4W on the Red Line

    You were the most beautiful petite blonde wearing all black workout gear late Sunday afternoon. I believe you got on at Fullerton and stood in the doorway the whole time. I stood in the opposite doorway. You exited a southbound train at Grand. Your nails were painted a blueish-greenish color.

  • Girl on the 8/22 United Flight 1646 (SFO-->ORD) with small bladder

    M4W at 3000 S Michigan on the south bound #1 bus

    You are very cute and petite with short (shoulder-length) blonde hair and what I'm guessing is a very small bladder. I'm guessing you are in your late 20s or early 30s. You were wearing black heals, blue jeans, a black shirt and a black and white patterned coat. I believe you also had a tan Michael Kors shoulder bag. I am 29, about 6' tall (on a good day) with short blond hair, blue eyes and an athletic build (not trying to be cocky... just calling it like I see it). I was wearing loafers, blues jeans, a grey nike pullover and a black nike warm-up jacket. I also had on black-rimmed glasses and, for the latter half of the trip, a worn Cubs hat. I was also carrying a black Patagonia backpack. If the above isn't specific enough, hopefully this is: you were sitting in seat 35F (the window seat) and I was on the aisle in 34D. Before we even left the gate, I let you in after you went to the bathroom. We exchanged glances early and then both attempted (unsuccessfully) to nap. Then, no more t

  • Shared Laughter among strangers.

    M4W on the Red Line

    To the beautiful woman with the unique left arm, I enjoyed sharing moments of laughter with you. It was our inside joke. I'd like to experience more moments of laughter and joy. I noticed you when you first entered the train. I'd take my time to get to know you. Friendship take more than a swipe of the thumb on a phone.

  • Chivalry is not dead.

    M4W at Halsted Orange Line Station on the north bound #8 bus

    We were standing at the stop together. When I arrived, you were already there. You had a yellow Forever 21 one shopping bag in your hand. We made eye contact a couple times and I stood aside so that you could enter the bus in front of me.

  • You don't look a day over 28

    M4W at Michigan & Jackson on the south bound #143 bus

    This was during Lollapalooza on Friday, August 1st. I made a mistake of letting you walk away without getting or giving a number. We met in line at the portable toilets in front of the bar tent on E Jackson Dr and S Columbus Dr. You were with two male friends, one who was tall with grey hair & grey shirt and the other was shorter and wearing a purple shirt. The shirt colors might have be the other way around, not entirely sure. We had a brief conversation but I learned a lot about you in those moments. You are a nursing professor and this is your first year teaching, you have a PhD that you got when you were 37, you own a condo not too far from Grant Park, you are single because of your job, you have a court case coming up where you play a big role. You were wearing a grey dress with thin black stripes, you turned and smiles at me in line, and you were re-applying lipstick that was probably maroon. I'm that Indian guy who said it was impossible that someone so beautiful was single an

  • Long shot - blue line

    M4W on the Blue Line

    This is a long shot, who knows if you would think to check this or not but here goes. This happened on Wednesday July 30th. I got on at Cumberland, you were already on the train. We exchanged many glances that seemed to last longer and longer. When I finally got up to get off at my stop, I hoped you would get off to but you continued on. We exchanged our final glance and exchanged big smiles. I hope to see you again! If you see this, give me a way of knowing it was you.
