It’s Valentine’s Day, a day for love, and this old romantic is breaking hearts across the world.
It all began on February 10 when Natalie, a girl from Texas, stopped by her local CVS pharmacy and spotted an elderly man in a cowboy hat hunting for the perfect Valentine’s Day card.
The unknown man was also holding on to a teddy bear as he poured through the cards, presumably looking for a gift for his partner.

It was all too much for Natalie, no doubt overwhelmed by the knowledge that romance never dies, and she shared a covert pic of the elderly cowboy.
When the photo hit the web Natalie got hundreds of like and retweets as others fell under the old man’s romantic spell, some were even reduced to tears!
Here’s a few of the tweets…

I’ve got to admit that it is an adorable picture, although crying about it may be a bit too far.
And they say romance is dead…
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
