WATCH: Former OFW reunites with woman of his dreams after decades to reignite their relationship

The intriguing story of Ed, a former OFW, and the love of his life, Helen is currently making its rounds on social media after netizens were touched by their love story that literally stood the test of time.

When Ed met Helen, he immediately felt that unique spark with Helen. “Ako, first impression type ko siya. Nung kausap ko, na feel ko na parang may gusto din siya sa akin. Sinagot ako yata nung 73 (1973),” recalls Ed;

“Noong 18 years old ako nakita ko yan,” recalls Helen as she reminisces the first time that they met.

Love from a long distance

When they finally entered into a relationship back in 1973, Ed was at the crossroads of deciding whether to be an OFW or not: “Sabi ko kasi pinapapunta ako ng abroad, sabi nya okay lang naman di ba – trabaho yun e. Pero babalik ka naman, sandal lang naman,”

Helen back then already expressed her hesitance when Ed decided to pursue it but she chose to cling on to his promise: “Parang nagpapa isip na sa akin, akala ko mahal ako netong ano na to, bakit puro negosyo? Isa lang ang sinabi niya sa akin: Para sa ating dalawa ito.”

However, Ed took a longer time than he expected as he worked overseas. “Tapos, extend ng extend, natagalan nga ako noon. Yung communication namin, parang malayo,” shares Ed.

Falling apart

Helen then thought that Ed might have already met someone else: “Naisip ko, nag asawa na rin siya kasi ni-ho ni-“hi” wala na.  Sabi ko, tatanda na yata ako dito.”

Ed then just found out through a friend that Helen had already married someone else: “Sinabi sa akin ng kaibigan ko na kapitbahay nila, o wala na, nag-asawa na. Sabi ko bakit ganyan, hindi ako hinintay.

Starting over again

Helen then shared that she never stopped loving Ed and wondered herself how and why things went down the way it did: “Ewan ko sa kanya bakit ginanun nya ko, hindi ko rin alam. Dahil ako talagang minahal ko siya ng sobra. Hindi ko alam kung bakit bigla na lang siyang nawala sa paningin ko.

However, while Ed said that while what Helen did hurt his feelings when he found out, he said that he didn’t pursue anyone else as this time, he decided to wait for her. “Alam mo naghiwalay tayo ng ganyan, alam mo ang sakit sa akin nun. Lalo na nung nalaman ko na kasal ka na, kaya nga hindi na ako nanligaw e Hinihintay lang kita,”

Today, Ed and Helen still reminisce about the past but in a lighter note:

“Kasi naman umalis ka kasi,” quipped Helen.

“Wala e trabaho, naiintindihan mo naman di ba?,” said Ed as he reminded her that he had to work overseas for their future.

“E, ba’t hindi mo na ako binalikan?,” asked Helen tugging on that heartstring when Ed left her.

“Kung bibigyan ako ng pagkakataon, aasawahin ko to, hindi ko na bibitawan to,” assured Ed as they now have another chance at reigniting their relationship.

Their love story now has 177k views with more than 6.1k reactions, 900+ comments and more than 3.4k shares on Facebook.

The video series “Ang Kwento ng Dating Tayo” was part of a promotional campaign for the movie “Tayo sa Huling Buwan ng Taon” that’s currently screening in Philippine cinemas.
