When a teenager named Kasey had one of the worst days of her life, Taylor Swift turned it all around.

Earlier this week, Kasey said on her Tumblr past that her boyfriend broke up with her via text, just days before Valentine's Day (what...). She then turned to the 25-year-old pop star, one her idols, for support and advice on Tumblr. And the fan favorite singer did her one better" She also provided her with a 6-song playlist to help her through her breakup. The post has since gone viral.

Kasey revealed that she had dating her boyfriend for about four months. She posted several messages to Swift on Monday evening and early Tuesday morning, peppered in between selfies and photos and illustrations of Swift. It took a while to capture the singer's attention.

Kasey first posted about her breakup on Monday evening, saying things like "My whole world just fell apart and all I want is a hug and I feel like I can't breathe or catch my breath," "Hello Taylor my boyfriend broke up with me, again, seems like some f--ked up rendition of we are never ever getting back together but I've realized that maybe I'll cut my hair and move to New York and be happy."

"I thought he was forever Taylor," Kasey wrote at 2:02 a.m. Swift then replied.
