A rather unique date request from a student in Southampton, has gone viral. Alfonso - who's from Mexico City - asked a woman out on a date with a handwritten note - drawn in the style of a mobile phone message. The 25-year-old made the offer to Naomi Lucking in the university library. She turned-down his request for a coffee, but his inventive effort has led to other date offers after she tweeted his handiwork. Speaking to us, he's called the reaction a "really great experience".
