No matter how confident and together a girl might be, sometimes she just needs to hear from a stranger that she is appreciated. A young student on twitter shared a video she took of a man in a taxi showering her with compliments recently, and we think it is beautiful
With all the horror stories being shared on social media about people being hurtful towards each other, and women being attacked on public transport, the video shared by twitter user, TheRoyalPriesthood @MosimaRamoroka, is like a breath of fresh air.
Briefly.co.za editor Genevieve Dlamini saw the video and was touched by how sweet it was so decided we had to share it with our readers.
In the short video, taken with the user's mobile phone, we can see the young lady smiling, laughing and eventually shedding tears as she is overwhelmed by the kind words of the passenger sitting next to her.
"I met a stranger in a taxi and he started complimenting me, I literally cried this guy made my entire life yaz God bless this guy yoh! Modimo waka " she posted along with the video in a tweet she has pinned to the top of her twitter account home page.

She probably put it there as a handy reminder when days get hard and life feels tough. We can all relate to feeling that way sometimes.
As the passenger notices she has started to feel overwhelmed he starts to sing to her and asks her not to cry.
He also asked her to "be his breakfast, because its the most important meal of the day." Have you ever had a similar experience or met someone as charming as this guy?
Of course there were some who felt that the guy was a little creepy, but there were more than a few who repeated the compliments, and one who gave her good advice on how to accept compliments from strangers.
It seems, based on what she tweeted later, that she decided to give him a chance and go out with him. Could this be the start of a beautiful relationship?
