The post hasn’t been confined to Facebook, though, as Twitter users have also taken screenshots to share it on that site.

The first thing the man says in his letter, which he addresses “To the man who let her go,” is “thank you.” He proceeds to thank the ex-boyfriend for leaving and for all the times he didn’t keep this woman happy. The writer explains that this gives himself the opportunity to cherish this woman and to be the boyfriend she deserves. Above all else, the idea that resonates throughout the letter is that the writer knows he has found the right woman and that he is going to do everything he can to be with her forever.
