A single woman who was chatting about her “hopeless” love life on her commute was reduced to tears when a kind stranger handed her a note.

Karyn Vallantyne, 21, was on the train chatting on the phone to 23-year-old mate Grace last Friday, February 11.

The singleton was bemoaning the state of her romantic life and saying she was ready to “give up” on love.

But, as the recruitment agency worker was talking a mysterious stranger passed her a note before getting off the train.

Karyn thought the piece of paper would tell her to stop complaining, but instead the words “you’re worth more, move on” sat on the page.

The young woman noted: "I was telling Grace about my love life and how I've been treated badly in the past and I'm basically giving up and losing hope. I wasn't crying but I was definitely down.

"My friend is one of those who tells you not to go back to your ex or talk to your ex. I said I find it hard to move on.

"I was sick of being on my own on Valentine's. It makes you think there's something wrong with you.

"I have always been a very romance-orientated person. If I'm not in a relationship I think less of myself.

"It was nice for someone to make me see there's more to life.

"It was a wake up call to not place so much value on whether someone sends you flowers on Valentine's day."

And, she’s now determined to find the sweet person who she thinks could’ve been sent by “guardian angels” to thank them.

Karyn, from Essex, commented: “I can't remember where on the line she got off but I was looking at my phone and she leaned over and dropped it into my lap.

"I'd been people watching so I'd seen she was doing the crossword, she ripped the corner of the page off to write on it.

"When I read it, I just burst into tears. I looked up to see if I could see her. There were loads of other people looking at me and I got really embarrassed.

"My friend was on the phone asking if I was still there because I couldn't speak. It was really lovely, I was in fits of tears.”

She added: "It said 'you're worth more. Move on'. It's so short but it had such a big impact.

"I'm quite spiritual and it made me think a lot about my guardian angels, they knew I needed a sign but they couldn't do it.

"I wasn't expecting it, I thought it was going to say 'shut up' or something, I didn't expect it to be remotely kind."

Karyn described the woman as aged 30 to 40 with brown hair and a trench coat – and wishes she’d spotted her before she got off the train.
