Missed Connections – Hook Hall Wine Festival! and hike to Annapolis Rock

picture by Diane Krauthamer

“Dear Popville,

Missed match! I met a guy hiking with his dad at Annapolis Rock in Maryland last Sunday afternoon (January 23). He was rather tall, with red/brown hair and beard. He mentioned that he lives in Capitol Hill and he took great photos of me and my friend in front of the view. I was the Asian woman wearing a beige fur jacket and a gray hat with a yellow pom pom. He and his father very kindly offered to drive us back to our car as it was getting late and the track was icy. I probably should have accepted their offer and/or asked for her number but, after two years of the pandemic, I can’t remember how to meet people in nature (literally)! It would be nice to have a coffee once in a while.


“I don’t know if this counts as a missed connection, but I (sort of) met a very cute guy at Hook Hall Wine Festival last Saturday.

He is tall, blond and wore a brown hoodie. He talked to my friends for a while after they helped a girl who got sick, then very kindly tipped my friend’s group, but I didn’t have the guts to talk to him myself until his group is about to leave. gate. I’m the brunette wearing a gray sweater/black skirt and holding a Shiba Inu. I would love to have a second chance to introduce myself!”

Ed. Note: If this is you, please email [email protected] so i can put you in touch with OP. PoPville is not affiliated with any of the parties, please proceed with any potential connection at your own risk and exercise caution, as you would with any online dating. For those curious about past missed connections, many have been made and if possible I’ll try to update when/if any more are made.
