None of the ladies at Edmond Memorial High School in Edmond, Oklahoma, went home empty-handed on Valentine’s Day, thanks to the work of a teenage romantic.

On the Friday before the holiday, each of the school’s 1,076 female students received a valentine with candy from an anonymous Casanova, reports KFOR.

The bright cards, called “Valegrams,” were all printed with the same touching message: “Remember there will always be people who care about you and I will always be one of them. Love, Anonymous.”

Although the giver of this sweet gesture wished to remain unknown, the recipients couldn’t help their curiosity.

“I have a feeling a good deed like this is going to get out,” student Sarah Cameron told KFOR.

Cameron was right. Before school let out that day, a senior named Dan Williams had been unmasked as the man behind the valentines.

Williams said he just wanted his classmates to know the special feeling of being appreciated on a holiday that can be hard for some.

The senior had been planning this act of kindness since the summer, working odd jobs the entire season to earn enough money for the presents. He currently doesn’t have a girlfriend, but something tells us that is about to change.
