A Woman Left A Romantic Sign For A Hot Guy And He Replied

It's a modern-day fairy tale, minus the Tinder.

Think old-fashioned love is dead? Think again. A woman in New Zealand appealed to a man she made eyes with by leaving a romantic handmade sign for him in the seaside town of Picton.

The sign reads:

"Is this you? I was sitting on the grass on Friday watching the sea... you were playing with your dog. You ran past me and smiled. Would you like to go for a drink/coffee/walk??? I'm in Wellington just now, my ferry arrives back in Picton on Tuesday 3rd. I'm in town for 1 night only... But let's see how things go... On the off-chance you are single, remember who I am and would like to meet for a drink/coffee/walk. I'll be sitting on the grass, watching the sea from 1-1.30pm onwards on Tuesday... Maybe you'll run past again?!?"

The poster also included a drawing of said man, complete with star tattoo and dog...just in case he couldn't read.

The woman reached out to the community, asking that her sign not be removed, all in the name of love.

The sign reads:

"Please don't remove this sign. In the spirit of happy endings, give this sign a chance to be seen by the right eyes. It may even bring a dozen or so people back on Tuesday, intrigued... who is this girl with the long brown hair and the boy with the star tattoos and the dog and will they meet for a drink? I will, on my return to Picton on Tuesday, remove it myself... Whatever the ending may be. Thank you!"

The community got behind her, with local cruise company Beachcomber Fun Cruises posting pictures of the signs on its Facebook page. The post attracted over 13,000 views.

Lo and behold, the mystery man responded to the post, identifying himself as Will Scott Chalmers.

Introducing Will, who, according to his Facebook page, is a barista at a local Picton café.

Will was coming to terms with his newfound fame in his hometown of around 4,000 people.

In an interview with New Zealand radio station The Hits, Will revealed that he was single and would definitely show up on Tuesday to meet up with the mystery woman.

"It would be really rude if I was the talk of the town and didn't show up," Will said.

"I'd go from being famous in Picton to being the most hated person, just like that."

Today, we finally learnt who the mystery woman was. World, meet Sarah.

It didn't take long before Will showed up (shirt on) and formally introduced himself.

Yay! Here's to love and romance...without the technology.

UPDATE: Will and Sarah spent their first date sipping wine onboard a boat in Picton Harbour before dinner at DA's Barn Restaurant & Bar.

The two were seen getting "cuddly" with each other and it's been reported that Sarah spent the night at Will's house. Will told there was no awkwardness at all.

"I told her if you want to stay here for a week you can and she said yes".

Nawwwwwwwww. *Heart melts*
