FRESNO, Calif. — A fifth-grade girl’s note to a boy in her class has gone viral because of his wise response to her romantic inquiry.

As many of us have done in our lifetimes, she wrote him a note that said, “Do you like me? Yes or no.”

She even etched out boxes to make it simple for him to check the correct answer.

But she should have drawn an “I don’t know” box and allowed him to “fill in the blanks”.

Because, in response, the boy wrote:

“I don’t know. I don’t know myself yet. Plus I’m under a lot of stress at home so I can’t tell. P.S. You don’t know yourself until you’re 18.”

ABC News reports that the little girl’s mom posted a picture of the note on her Facebook page, knowing her friends would enjoy it; but now so have millions of others on Reddit.
