It was a sweet Valentines love story that captivated thousands - a young woman receiving an anonymous love note on her car at the petrol station.
Brisbane-based hairdresser, Aleasha Bliss, blogged about the moment a complete stranger left a complimentary note on her car windscreen with the words: 'You are breathtaking'.
But now it appears that the story isn't the fairytale it seems to be, and that the man who wrote the note has left identical ones for at least two other women.

Wow: The note from Josh said 'wow you are breathtaking' and included his telephone number
Ms Bliss, 32, had stepped inside a petrol station for a 'coffee fix' on Valentines Day. She came back out and found the note on her windscreen.
'First thought before opening it- great, I’ve cut someone off on highway and they thought they’d leave me an aggressive message to tell me off,' Ms Bliss wrote.
'Not the case. To my amazement, all it said was, “Hi just had to say wow you are breathtaking, Josh (and a phone number).'
At first the mum was pleasantly surprised, but soon discovered that 'Josh' was a serial note leaver.
After her blog post spread, Ms Bliss was contacted but two other women in Brisbane who had been left identical messages.

Identical: Kelly received the same note from the same man at the same service station at Ms Bliss did
One woman, Kelly, shared a photo of the piece of paper she was left when at the same service station, which had the exact same message and handwriting.
'I was 32 weeks pregnant with my second child and was holding my 2-year-old old [when I got the note],' 32-year-old Kelly told Daily Mail Australia.
'So funny, I cracked up laughing. It was like 10 months ago, clearly he has had no success.'
Another anonymous woman also shared that she had received the same note, only signed with the name 'Blake' instead of Josh.

And in an additional twist, it appears this wannabe Casanova actually isn't even single, according to Ms Bliss.
'So this is out of control,' she wrote. '"Josh" is not at all who he claims to be, I’ve just been speaking to his heartbroken girlfriend.'
Ms Bliss also blogged that after texting the number 'Josh' left, but before finding out about his girlfriend, that she started to feel uncomfortable.
'Although it was an exciting moment, nothing is going to eventuate from this with him. I’m actually concerned of his intentions completely,' she wrote.

Uh oh: Ms Bliss now claims that 'Josh' isn't single and said that she had spoken to his 'heartbroken' girlfriend
Kelly, who also received a note, said that her husband tried to call the number the man left, but that no one would answer the phone.
Originally Ms Bliss had told her blog readers to 'be like Josh', but she has now changed her mind.
'Josh has a girlfriend – don’t be like "Josh,"' she titled her latest blog post on the saga.
