It is said that constantly posting photos of you together and your partner on social media, or at least tagging one another in posts, can imperil your relationship because doing so means that you’re insecure or unhappy. But there are couples who beg to disagree with this notion, just like this lovely young couple who’s apparently getting stronger as time goes by, despite flooding our Instagram newsfeeds with their sweet snaps and clips together.
Their worlds might be a bit different – with John Manalo being a showbiz personality since he was a kid and currently appears on FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano as Pitoy, while Erika Rabara being an ordinary girl with an extraordinary reach on social media as an endorser and influencer. Yet, their hearts and souls still found some things that could strongly connect them for three years now.
It was in 2016 when followers of the Goin Bulilit alumnus began to spot Erika on his IG account and captioned their photos together with sweet messages. From then on, thousands of netizens have been witnesses to their continuously blooming romance, their travels and pigging out sessions, and other fun shenanigans they shared in various events they had attended together.
But what makes them rightful to be tagged as true #RelationshipGoals is with how they’re able to unmistakably complement one another and how they genuinely and unconditionally love each other. As what Erika revealed in one of her posts, John was never a distraction for her when it comes to her studies and goals in life as he served more of an inspiration to her instead.
They only remind us that in every relationship, no one should bring both of them down for they should work together in order for both of them to achieve their respective ambitions and accomplish their respective priorities. Besides, we should also know how to make sacrifices, be respectful and considerate, and put God at the center of your union.
