"Aww" can also be used as an expression of disappointment or sympathy when someone tells you something sad or unfortunate.

It is the intonation that decides what is meant.

Awww with a falling intonation is endearment type meaning.
Awww with a rising intonation is from a child that can not have any lollies or ice cream.


The day I stop learning will be the day I die. Maybe.
