There are few things in life more painful than heartbreak.
And your first heartbreak? Well, that one’s the worse.
Although often deemed ‘puppy love’, childhood crushes are very real to the children who experience them. Their naive, little brains create fairy-tale romances in which they and Lisa, from kindergarten, will be together forever.
As most of us know, childhood romances often don’t work in the long run— and 4-year-old Milo is discovering that for himself.
You see, little Milo is in love with a girl named Emily. It’s unclear if she’s a classmate or babysitter, but his emotions remain the same. Milo loves Emily with every ounce of his heart. But now, his mother drops a truth bomb that has him questioning everything he knew.
In the two-minute video, you Milo’s honest reaction to learning that Emily likes another boy.
It looks like his mother is driving him home from school when she decides to drop the truth bomb upon him. Up to this moment, Milo’s day had been going well— but soon he hears the words that turn it all upside down.
“So, Emily likes a boy,” his mother tells him.
The preschooler, clad in his snowsuit and tuque sits in the backseat. He looks up upon hearing the news. “Oh, Emily likes a boy?” he replies, seemingly nonchalant.
His mother confirms her previous statement, also revealing the boy called Emily on the phone.
“What boy is it?” Milo asks her, his face returning a blank stare.
Milo seems to be handling the news surprisingly well, but apparently, it was all just a masculine facade. Soon, his mother asks him a question that reveals the truth.
When Milo’s mom asks the little boy how he feels, he responds with only one word— before completely breaking down.
“Sad,” he tells her holding it in before his face crumples, and he starts to bawl. “You don’t like that?” his mother asks him. “Why?”
“Because it hurts my feelings,” wails Milo.
“I thought her was my friend but now her doesn’t like me anymore!”
Poor little Milo is devastated that Emily seems to have found another boy.
He continues crying in the backseat as his mom explains that people can have more than one friend. She tells him it doesn’t mean Emily likes him any less. Milo, however, is not having any of it.
It seems four is a bit early to be dealing with these kinds of relationship dilemmas—but they do say children are growing up fast! Still, there’s something incredibly sweet about Milo’s emotional reaction to the news— and you must admit, we have all been there before.
At one point, in the most relatable part of the video, he exclaims in pre-school grammar:
“I just want her to like me more better!”
Since being uploaded to Rumble, Milo’s adorable, first heartbreak has been viewed more than 2 million times. As mentioned, it’s impossible not to relate to the little guy’s honest feelings. Although he seems a bit crushed by the experience, we’re sure his 4-year-old heart will bounce back soon.
