A young Pittsburgh couple had more to celebrate than just their love this Valentine’s Day after an anonymous couple paid for their $250 dinner.
Reddit user gnomiegnomie posted that they were dining at Pittsburgh’s Eleven restaurant when an older couple at a nearby table decided to pick up the tab.
The pair discovered the gift when they were delivered a note titled ‘Random Act of Kindness.’

‘The only request is that someday you pay it forward,’ the note read. ‘In the meantime, enjoy your youth, enjoy friendship, enjoy love. Be good to each other and good luck.’
As the couple are both college students this was an extravagant meal for their income.

They were unable to thank them in person, however, as the couple quickly left the restaurant after setting up the payment.
The Redditor already has an idea of how they’ll pay the kindness forward.
