A CLYDEBANK man who was out walking has shared photos of an emotional note he found during his journey.

Krissy Ayre was at the trig point at Queens View, Auchineden Hill, on Sunday morning when he noticed a blue folded bit of paper sitting on top.

An anonymous woman had left the note on purpose that included a special request.

It read: “Dear walker, this might seem a little odd and in fact, it is, but I just wanted to ask for your help in sending me a wish. I am a woman in my 30s and I am completely alone.

“I have watched all of my friends get married and have babies, one by one. I am always happy for everyone else, but I really have so much love to give and I want to find a partner to love me back. I have been single for a very long time and I just feel very alone, unloved and unwanted.

“Wishing for this on my own just hasn’t been enough so I would really appreciate if you could take a moment to wish that love comes my way. I hope this works.

“Thank you for your kindness and taking the time to read this. I wish love and happiness for you.”

Krissy shared the photos he took of the note with his sister Kirsty Ayre, who posted them on social media with the caption: “Dear stranger. You are not alone. I hope you see this. Please share.”

And Kirsty told the Post: “Krissy wondered what the blue piece of paper sticking out the top was and sent it to me and we decided the power of social media could be used to good effect.

“We were both worried about her mental health, so we shared the pictures to let the stranger know that she is not alone.”
