The internet came together to show a brother some support after he was seemingly exiled to the “friend zone” after taking one woman on an epic date.
A picture of what looked to be a couple posted on Facebook by user Ronak Kallianpur went viral but not for romantic reasons.
Not sure how the girl imagines friendly dates, but they usually don’t include “Top Golf, dinner, flowers, ice cream, and horse-back riding.” However, the girl, under Instagram username Alexobar, was pretty fixed on the idea that Daniel, the guy who tried to sweep her off her feet, was just being an “amazing friend.”
In the caption she posted, “You out-did yourself on this friend date Daniel! You wanted to set a standard for how I should be treated and you sure set a high one. I thank God so much that He put an amazing friend like you in my life. Thank you for making me feel like a true princess. #stillsingletho”
Her comments section was then flooded with remarks with hashtag #soldierdown and still, the girl was confused what everyone was trying to say.
“I tried guys,” Daniel said sounding defeated.
Although he did not get the response he was hoping for after that well thought-out date, the internet did show him lots of love. Unfortunately, the internet wasn’t as kind to the woman who was reportedly flooded with online harassment. Eventually, Daniel came to the rescue with this message to clear things up:
At least Daniel is a true gentleman to the last. Good luck friend.
