Spaniard's public 'love letter' sparks mixed response

A young Spaniard who was smitten with a woman he saw on a tram posted fliers on lamp posts hoping to make contact. Someone claiming to be the woman responded by pleading with him to leave her alone.

Spanish newspaper El Pais and other media reported Friday how Sergio Moreno had posted a letter titled "The Girl on the Tram" in the southeastern city of Murcia, describing the date and time of seeing her, how she was dressed and how he wished he could have cheered her up.

The story went viral when pictures started appearing of a supposed response from the woman, accusing Moreno of harassment and saying "if you want to make me happy, stop looking for me."
