Netizen Aimee Aguado had that dreamy childhood-sweetheart kind of love story. Courted since fifth grade, stuck together throughout high school, became official in college, powered through dance competitions and pageants and graduations and board exams and masters courses — the two truly seemed like they’ve passed the test of time and had it all made out for them.
Yet, resentment took the place of love when Aimee Aguado had to call it quits — after 7 and a half years of being in a relationship, and another 7 years of courtship that came before that. There is a single question that begs to be answered: Why?
Aimee answers this question in her viral Facebook post, which, as of writing, has already been shared more than 13,000 times and has already gained almost 20,000 reactions.
In her post, Aimee identified herself as a person who willingly gives people chances. She qualified, however, that a person does not deserve multiple chances for the same mistakes:
Aimee Aguado proceeded to share 22 adorable photos documenting her love story with her childhood sweetheart. Everything started in fifth grade — yes, they were that young.
The two even stuck together all throughout high school, as the guy apparently followed Aimee wherever school she went.
Still, the two only became an official couple in 2010, when they were already in college. It took the guy 7 long years to get Aimee’s sweet ‘yes.’
It must have seemed like nothing could ever break the two apart. They spent almost every day together, shared meals, even dyed their hair the same color — doesn’t it all seem like enviable #relationshipgoals for the rest of us?
Well, apparently, the childhood sweethearts’ relationship wasn’t as perfect as it seemed — and as Aimee Aguado herself thought it was.
It must have been tough, having to let go of someone you’ve spent more than a decade of your life with. The two even had a couple infinity tattoo, and already had plans of tying the knot. Unfortunately, it was all a sham.
“For all those years na magkasama tayo, naglolokohan lang pala tayo?” wrote Aimee.
Although she did not go into details of her boyfriend’s blunders, it was easy to infer that it had something to do with infidelity.
“I hope mas maging masaya ka sa pinili mong landas…I loved you, Goodbye…
