A Romantic News Clipping From 1865 Has Reddit (And Us) Swooning

Ok, let's be honest. There is nothing gay about this topic.

Straight or not though, this man is too damn adorable and this was the cutest thing to come across my computer screen today, so I had to share it with all of you.

But what am I talking about?

Well, this is something new (and very old) that's hitting the waves of Reddit and the internet. 

Someone discovered an old news clipping from 1865. In it, an 18-year-old man from Aroostook County, Maine reaches out to the unknown and asks for a suitor (of the female persuasion) to call his own.

This act, which may seem desperate to some (of whom may be doing the same thing on Grindr), but to others it has come off as incredibly endearing. 

Read the news clipping down below and lets us know what you think.
