Guy Honors Girlfriend Who Stayed with Him Through Difficult College Days

A guy honors his girlfriend who stayed with him through his difficult college days, supporting and encouraging him all the way. In return, he promised that she will be there in his success, now that he finally graduated from college.

Guy Honors Loyal Girlfriend

Danniel Tubal shares how much he loves his girlfriend, Mariatherese Palma, as she had been there for him through the most difficult times in his life. Though she’s the high school campus crush, she chose him – and she had been there for him right from the start.

While many guys would say that girls are really just after their money and would pick a rich man over a poor guy anytime, Mariatherese proved that she does not need his money. In fact, it is she who shares her money with him because she knows that he only has Php20 to spend the entire day.

Mariatherese would share her own allowance with him but would often slip the money inside his bag instead of giving it to him directly. Perhaps she didn’t want him to feel embarrassed, but she would wait until he is in school to message him about the money she put in his pocket.

The civil engineering graduate expressed his appreciation that his girlfriend’s lover never faltered, even if he did not have any money to treat her to fancy restaurants because all he could afford is kwek-kwek for their date.

She was with me even I cannot afford to buy her gifts on our anniversaries. She was with me when failed 3 subjects in midterm and almost lose hope. And I will make sure that SHE WILL BE WITH ME IN MY SUCCESS 🔥,” Danniel promised.

Congratulations on you both!
