A woman reached out to a lonely Daily Mail commenter and something wonderful happened

Prepare to have your heart warmed.

A FEW DAYS ago, social media editor Felicity Morse was reading an article on Mail Online about loneliness.

While reading the comments, she stumbled upon this comment from an older woman recounting her recent solo trip to Barbados.

Morse wrote on Facebook that she found it “unbearable” and decided to reach out to the woman.

So I replied to her asking if she wanted to go for coffee. It was a bit of a long shot. Who checks their replies? I didn’t even have a name. What she said had really bothered me. Being lonely is so awful and so solvable.

Against all odds, however, she heard back from the woman.

Morse soon tracked her down on Twitter and the pair decided to arrange a tea party.

Jamil expressed shock and gratitude that someone in The Daily Mail’s comment section would reach out to her at her lowest ebb.

Soon, Morse had an idea — why not open the tea party up to other people who may be feeling down or lonely?

So that’s exactly what she did.

Morse has won praise for her lovely gesture on social media.

The tea party takes place in Central London tomorrow afternoon and everyone is invited to pop along.

Proof that the internet is a magical place, eh?
