This text message exchange has gone viral with more than 350,000 views around the world and it’s not hard to see why.
Chad was a guest at his cousin’s wedding when a nervous young man walked up to him towards the end of the night and asked Chad his name. Chad and the young man made small talk before the young man said, “‘I just wanted to let you know that I have noticed you all night. I wanted to leave this with you before I left.”
He gave Chad his phone number. Although Chad is straight (and has a girlfriend), he felt the need to text the young man back, applauding his confidence and bravery. He then posted the text message exchange saying, “I’m sharing this to remind everyone to live their lives without regrets. Almost all of my regrets come from the things I didn’t do, not the things I did. I will be living my life more like this man and I suggest you all do as well.”
Both men are heroes in our books!
