Do you remember your first love? For a fifth-grade boy trying to woo the girl of his dreams, there’s no higher praise than Pokemon.
In a post going viral on Reddit right now, “dreichert87” shared this adorable love note sent to his fifth grade niece. It says:
Your eyes remind me of the evening sky. My heart felt like broken glass until I saw you, and then, I felt like I had every pokémon, ever. I love how you play Zelda even when people think its weird. If you liked me, it would be my first ever victory. Love, [name blocked.]
Cuter still, he turned every dot over the letter “i” into hearts.
The comments on Reddit add to the cuteness.

And Trinkets adds: “He loves Pokémon, she loves Legend of Zelda. This is retro gamer love, people- and it’s God d— beautiful.”
