As it turns out, they are just friends – and nothing more


In a Filipino Facebook group page, it was learned that the pair is Indonesian. It was said there that a user saw the guy’s original post with the caption saying “kenapa dia pergi? Sebab saya selalu minta sama allah supaya bagikan wanita yang terbaik untuk saya.”

The user then translated the caption into Tagalog, saying: “bakit sya nawala? Dahil palagi ko hinihiling kay allah na bigyan nya ako ng best na babae na para talaga sa akin” (“Why did she leave? It’s because I kept asking Allah to give me a woman that’s right for me”). She added that the last part of the caption said: “There’s always a rainbow (rainbow emoji) after the storm (cloud and rain emoji).”


In another comment, meanwhile, it was revealed that the guy was always in love with the girl, but it was unfortunately never reciprocated. Oh, the heartache that is unrequited love…

Whatever the story is, in the end, the girl got married to another man while her “best friend” stayed by her side… literally (awkward).
