Oath. Note: If this is you, please email [email protected] so I can get in touch with you with OP. For those who are curious about previously missed connections, some have been made and when possible I will try to update when / if more are made. Connection made with Adams Morgan dog handler.

“Dear PoPville,

I, wearing a Cleveland Brown jersey, passed the most attractive man ever on corner of I St NW & 5th today (Sunday), 3 October around kl. We smiled at each other and he said “go Browns!” I had a mini heart attack back then and just smiled back, but I 100% regret that I did not ask him to watch the game with me. Hope you will write this and he will see it so we can connect! ”


“I sat on the green belt tied yellow line Monday, October 4 around 5:30 pm in Crystal City and made frequent eye contact with a tall, blond girl who also boarded the train in Crystal City. I was wearing gray pants, a blue and white shirt and nikes, and you were wearing blue jeans and a white blouse. I read a John Grisham book, “A Time for Mercy,” and listened to some paper jams; you also listened to music or possibly a podcast.

We caught ourselves and looked at each other several times under the subway. You got off at L’Enfant Plaza while I continued into Gallery Place. I did not capture your name or number. Let’s have coffee or a drink sometime! ”


Monday evening (October 4) around noon. 19 at Dawson’s Market in Dupont (known as Glen’s until recently) I stood in line to pay, wearing black cycling shorts, white t-shirt and gold rings. A very well-dressed, tall, dark-haired man joined me at the back of the queue. He was wearing a burgundy-like Ted Baker sports coat and navy pants. I asked what color he would call his sports coat, to which he replied a little stunned, but kindly, “uhh I’m a guy, so I do not know these things ..” Nevertheless, I complimented him on his attire and he seemed appreciative . It did not occur to me until I was at the cash payment that I could have continued chatting with him! ”
