So for years he would buy dozens of his friends flowers for the romantic holiday as a gesture of kindness. But this year he truly went all out — he bought 900 carnations and made sure every single girl at his school went home with a flower.

"The vice principal told me that in all his years of teaching he'd never seen anything like it," Godfrey said.

The teen said he'd been inundated with Facebook messages from people at the school thanking him for his sweet gesture.

If you're a teenage girl who is by now swooning at all this romance, we have some bad news: Hayden is taken! His girlfriend Lilyan Sharp told ABC News Hayden is "very special" and that every girl walked out of school with "a giant smile on their face."
