A viral YouTube video is reminding us that the saddest love story of all is one that almost happens.
They rise in the morning:
Sleepily brush their teeth:
And go about their very similar work days and commutes, albeit separately:
When they do finally meet, the encounter is not at all what you expect ― or at least had hoped for the pair.
The bittersweet video has already racked up over 2 million views on YouTube and has a lot of people shook in the comments section.
“When the perfect ending isn’t in sight but the video is about to end and you begin to panic deep inside,” one person wrote, summing up their (and our) feelings perfectly.
Watch the video above to see how the scene plays out.
