Love and public transportation are governed by the same laws.
Neither love, nor the bus, will come when you’re desperate; both love and the train run on their own timetables; and there are a lot of strange people heading in your general direction.
There is something especially lovely when love and public transport collide.
On Jan. 3, a dude was riding the L2 bus, cruising down Connecticut Avenue. While on this ordinary commute, the dude met a female Senate staffer and, quick as a blink, was the most smitten kitten in Washington.
According to our tipster, the Mr. Smitten asked his Hill friends to circulate an email with a series of “gutsy haikus.”
“His big, bold gesture has been described as ‘adorable’ and ‘truly epic,'” the tipster tells HOH.
As far as we know, dude is not the tipster. If you have any information for this love-sick bus rider, email L2dreamscometrue@gmail.com.
Click through to read the story of their meeting in haiku form.
Not usually too thrilling
You walk in the door
My heart skips a beat
I send off a quick email
Then I make my move
Though time was fleeting
And my stop fast approaching
I could not resist
Your smile and laughter
And flag football war stories
What was I to do?
Alas, now you’re gone
And I am left to wonder
Do you play QB?
Don’t be a stranger
Send over a yea or nay
Second chances rock!
