    People Are Freaking Out Over This List Of Rules A 10-Year-Old Wrote For A Boy Who Liked Her

    "You like me but I don't like you. I'm 2 young."

    A fifth-grade student wrote this hilarious letter telling a boy who was coming on too strong to lay off. It was so perfect it immediately went viral.

    The letter was posted on Twitter by Denny Jones, a dance instructor based in New York, after her friend, a teacher, shared it with her.

    Jones told BuzzFeed News that the two children are in separate fifth-grade classes. Her friend, who preferred not to give her name, was handed the letter by the boy after he received it.

    The boy explained that he liked his fellow pupil because she was the โ€œsmartest girlโ€ he knew.

    Sadly, the young lady didn't feel the same. And, in the letter, she kindly informs her admirer several times that she is not to be played with.

    After laying down the law, she warns him that she'll have to get back up if he doesn't respect her boundaries.

    Jones' tweet has now been shared over 7,000 times. "I obviously thought the letter was adorable and it gave me a chuckle. I thought it would only stay in my circle... and wasn't expecting it to become this big," she told BuzzFeed News.

    I swear I didn't know that tweet was gonna blow up like that, lol

    People immediately started praising the girl's ingenuity.

    @WhosDenverJones This girl gonna Assemble the Avengers if you mess with her!

    And thought we could all benefit from being direct and headstrong like her.

    @WhosDenverJones this girl is most definitely going places. ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ™Œ ๐Ÿ”ฅ

    She quickly became an inspiration.

    @WhosDenverJones @whyofcorso you have to start laying ground rules early! #donottouchmyshoulder

    She really means it.

    And people wanted to make sure her message stuck.

    @WhosDenverJones @LaniKaiDuck How can we be sure he's read it 500 times? We may need an extensive verification protocol.

    And of course people had some words of comfort to offer the lovestruck boy.

    Either way, everyone agreed that the letter was pure genius.

    @WhosDenverJones @amberdiscko omg this new generation I'm so proud ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ

    "They're really both good kids," Jones told BuzzFeed News. "She just wanted to make herself clear with him. And they're actually friends now."
