Putting romantic feelings into words is hard for adults, and even harder when you haven’t been through puberty yet. But one 5th grader has pulled it off, and he’s putting us all to shame. 

On Reddit, dreichert87 writes, “My niece is in 5th grade and got her first love note. This 5th grader has more game than I’ll ever have.” 

You and everyone else. Get ’em, Young Shakespeare. Even if your feelings (of having every Pokémon) end up unreciprocated, it was brave of you to put yourself out there. Congratulations on your first ever victory.
