This week, we decided to hop on our bikes, hit one of our favourite neighbourhoods and see how many nice boys we could find along the way. Seeing as I live and work on 17th Avenue, we figured it would be a good place to start. We ended up meeting so many amazing boys who worked in cool shops, danced in the street for fun, wore bow ties and celebrated their birthdays with their best girl friends and organized awesome music festivals.
Internet, we are happy to introduce you to the 17th Avenue boys who left a lasting impression…
James from Tubby Dog
If you know James at all, you know that while he might not want to admit it, he is a really, very nice boy.
Kim from Kawa
We walked into Kawa and ran into a friend behind the counter who insisted that we photograph Kim because he couldn’t say a mean thing about anyone and was the nicest boy around.
dancers with swag, Fernando and Michael
These boys were so nice that they didn’t get upset or run away when we interrupted their filming to talk to them. They are competitive dancers with smiles like sunshine!
dapper birthday boy Mowno
We stopped Mowno because we loved his bow tie. When we asked the girls he was with if he was nice, their genuine smiles and nods in combination with his kindness to us strangers were enough to have us convinced.
and the ever-so-charming Brian and Drew from Sled Island.
We saw these guys from across the street and waited awkwardly at the crosswalk for them to walk towards us. They turned out to be organizers for Sled Island with awesome laughs, great penmanship and enough awkward pauses and smiles to make a girl blush.
