Whether you’re 90, 19, or nine, saying goodbye is never easy. As was the case with a young “couple” that is giving everyone on the internet a case of the feels.
Nine-year-old Merce Meynardie and his “girlfriend” Mylee had to say goodbye because Merce’s father is starting a new job in California --Leaving a heartbroken Mylee behind in Louisiana. Her older sister, Haylie, posted photos of the tearful goodbye on Twitter, and they have since gone viral.
As reported by Yahoo Style, Mylee said, "My life is over. I’m supposed to marry Merce. How am I going to marry him if he is in California?"
The “couple” has known each other since they were two years old when they met in a dance class taught by Merce’s grandmother. His father, Glen, says that the boyfriend/girlfriend label is symbolic of their friendship and that the two aren’t allowed to actually date.
“They greet each other with a hug before class, and after each class, Merce walks her to the car and hugs her goodbye,” Glen said. “I can remember them holding hands at dance competitions when they were two or three years old.”
But even as friends, there is an undeniable love in the pictures. And romantics on social media are already rooting for the cute couple to find each other later in life.
