‘The saddest thing in life’ So this Reddit post DIVIDED the internet


We’ve all experienced those moments where we think we might have just encountered the person who could have a profound impact on our life only to realise we’re never likely to see them again.

A fleeting glance on the morning commute, a snatched conversation after a night out or a lingering look across a crowded chipper can have even the most rational of us imagining what could have been.

So, it’s no surprise that a Reddit upload which explored this particular issue has made such a massive impact on internet users all over the world.

Doing the major rounds on social media, some see the post as nothing more than a total buzzkill while others were reminded of their own experience of unrequited love.

"Oh look, the most depressing post I've ever seen has once again appeared to me late at night while I'm drinking," wrote one while another countered: "Reminds me of this girl I met on a 12 hour flight, we talked for 10 hours straight, she had a boyfriend so nothing came of it."

Ladies, we'll let you be the judge of this one.
