Earlier today, I thought, "You know, maybe things are going all right in my life."
But then, I realized I don't have anyone to do for me what a sweet guy named Chaz did for his girlfriend's birthday, and I started vehemently sighing for about 20 minutes straight.
Last Saturday, 17-year-old Chaz Adams shared the sweetest, most thoughtful present he made for his 18-year-old girlfriend Maiyah's birthday on social media.
On Twitter, Chaz posted a video showing him flipping through a regular, old composition notebook. And every single page of the notebook — yes, all 150 of them — was filled with sweet words and pictures Chaz felt described their relationship.
YOU GUYS, IF THIS ISN'T A MODERN-DAY, LITERAL INTERPRETATION OF "THE NOTEBOOK," IDK WHAT IS.
About what exactly he included in the book, Chaz tells Elite Daily, "I talked about why I do the things I do for her, I talked about how much I love her, I put pictures of our favorite memories together, I talked about our future and our past."
If this love-filled book isn't enough to convince you that Chaz and Maiyah are relationship goals (do you even have feelings?), then read this beautiful tweet thread Chaz wrote for Maiyah's birthday and get back to me:
Regarding what inspired him to write this actual love novel for his girlfriend, Chaz says his main goal was to find the perfect way to really show Maiyah he loved her:
We both have had somewhat or a troubled past with relationships, so I made a promise to her when I first met her that I would do anything to make her smile, so I decided to keep my promise. I've always wanted to express the love I had for her, but it was hard to. Until I started writing the book. Things began to flow a lot easier.
It's glaringly obvious Chaz was serious when he said he'd do anything to make Maiyah smile, because this project definitely wasn't a quick one. In fact, he says it took him "a little less than three weeks" to finish.
I don't know about you guys, but I'm ugly crying in public right now just thinking about how sweet this is. And luckily, I'm not alone because Twitter can't handle the sweetness either:
The club can't even handle anyone right now because we're literally flooding it with tears.

Seriously, name a more iconic duo. I'LL WAIT.
Just when I think I can't cry any more tears over this, I surprise myself.
Chaz and Maiyah are the only way we can tell love is still alive.
Get yourself a partner like this, ladies. IT'S THE ONLY WAY.
At the end of the day, this is how we're all REALLY feeling about this right now:
Chaz explains that even though their relationship isn't always perfect, he thinks his relationship with Maiyah is "the best thing to ever happen," adding that the love between Maiyah and him is "like no love [he's] ever experienced."
He also explains how he hopes this present to Maiyah will "show people our generation still has the ability to love."
"I wanna [show them] what ways to treat a woman, and how to keep a woman," he says.
In a world of duds where we assume love is dead, at least there are guys like Chaz out there to remind us all we have some sliver of hope.
