Although this post was originally written some time ago, it still resonates with thousands of people, and we would like to share it with you to celebrate Pride Month and celebrate love!
Namely, the post was first shared on Reddit by a 17-year-old high school student who had a massive crush on a trans girl from their school. They didn’t know how to handle the situation, though, so they turned to Reddit for answers. The student wrote that they were scared about being scared for dating a trans girl, but they still wanted to go out with her because they were ‘head over heels for her’.
The original post that was shared on Reddit’s r/relationships subbed was titled: “There is a trans girl [17 F] in my [17 M] school that I can’t get out of my mind. I have a massive crush on her but I’m also afraid of a social crush if I ask her out.”.
The 17-year-old wrote a lengthy post on how beautiful this girl was and how they had feelings for her. Even though the post has since been deleted, it was reshared on Twitter by user @EricTheDragon, and we invite you to check it out for yourself below:
There is a 17yo boy on Reddit asking advice how to ask out a trans girl at school. It is absolutely heartwarming, and also he’s a really good writer? https://t.co/vPf2Ajnubn pic.twitter.com/CC3SnNssL7

Although this person was a bit concerned about their family’s reaction, they were backed up by their younger brother – which many Redditors hailed him for.
So, the high schooler eventually decided not to bring her flowers to school, but thanked everyone for their advice and asked if it would be okay to bring her flowers if they asked her on a date and she says yes.
Omg if I could advise this young man I would say that life is so much bigger than high school and if this young woman makes you as happy as it seems you must go towards that happiness. Love sets us free. Make her feel as special as she is & as you see her. #transisbeautiful https://t.co/gfdWjDAyD2

Others advised him to take one step at a time, and don’t disclose anything to others without checking in with her first. The best advice, though, was that they should be the person their younger brother thinks they should be!
