A young boy in Wuhan, Hubei province (China) came home crying from school after hearing that his crush had been “bought” by another with an iPhone 4.

You read that right. As the story goes, 8 year-old Xiao Xiao (pseudonym) had written a love letter to a girl in his class, but didn’t get any reply. For days he had been hearing rumors that the girl wasn’t into him, but he wanted a straight answer.

Using an approach even grown men fear, he decided to ask her personally. To his dismay, the girl finally decided to let out the truth: she had laid her eyes on another boy.

Here's the kicker. The reason? He’d bought her an iPhone 4.

8 year-old Xiao Xiao went home crying to his father who later told the press, “The boy is young, too young, what do children know of love anyway?”

Indeed, what do they know these days? But the question shouldn’t be about Xiao Xiao, who apparently knows when to man up and go tell a girl how he feels, even at 8 years old.
