A WOMAN IN Dublin is looking for her Valentine.

‘Purplemac’ has taken to Reddit in an attempt to find the “handsome bearded customer” who bought her flowers on 14 February.

The woman said she met the man in a shop near Grafton Street in Dublin city centre, noting: “After a banter-filled early morning chat, you randomly bought me flowers.”

She described this as “the single kindest gesture anyone has ever done for me, all to make me smile”.

The woman didn’t catch the man’s name, but knows he works in a restaurant.

I have minimal details to go on and despite my best efforts I haven’t seen you or been able to find you and I also unfortunately haven’t worked a Saturday since.

Here’s the message in full:

One Reddit user suggested the woman leave a note with a co-worker to give to the man if he returns while she’s not there, while another described him as a “smooth bastard”.

And they say romance is dead.
