(Newser) – Ah, Valentine's Day: That magical time in a girl's young life when her fragile self worth is defined by the number of pink and red scraps of paper passed their way in school. Not to worry, potential lonely hearts in Oklahoma's Edmond High School, one boy has you covered: As KFOR reports, an anonymous boy made a point to send a Valentine to every girl in school—to the tune of 1,076 of them. The young Romeo was quickly outed as Dan Williams, and he apparently used the money he made from working last summer to pull off the caper. "To know that someone cares about them, that’s the best feeling in the world I think," he says.
