It’s important to be supportive of your significant other, particularly when it comes to their passions. And if that means that you occasionally have to act as a literal physical support for one of their daring stunts, then so be it.
21-year-old Lorena Mora is a senior at San Francisco State University. Her boyfriend of almost four years, Isaac Garcia, is a photographer who is constantly on the lookout for the perfect angle. And, when the couple went on a recent trip to Vancouver, Canada, Mora decided to go the extra mile to help Isaac get his shot.
Specifically, she acted as a human chair in order to support Isaac and his photograph.
“Another tourist thought it was cute and offered to take a photo,” Mora tells BuzzFeed of the cute and supportive moment.
The result of Mora’s valiant assistance? This stomach-churning shot:
Um, NOPE, NO THANKS. No wonder Mora felt the need to help Isaac out, and keep him from toppling over the edge.
“I help him when I see that I’m able to,” she tells BuzzFeed. “He usually just asks for my opinion on his photos, but I love to support him any way I can, whether I have to throw on boys’ clothing and be his model, or scout out locations with him.”
Lorena tweeted out the photos with the caption “Always support ya mans.” The tweet was liked over 184,000 times, and retweeted over 45,000 times.
People couldn’t help but admire this truly stellar girlfriend behavior.
After all, Isaac basically owes that incredible snapshot to Lorena’s sturdy shoulder.
And as for a fear of heights? It’s not a problem when they’re already in the clouds, y’all! (*High-five for the lamest joke ever*)
Mora says she’s amused by the amount of attention the photo has received, but wants everyone to know that Isaac is perfectly capable of getting those daring pics on his own.
“A lot of people have been commenting on how he may have poor core support and that he should start working out more,” Mora said. “But it was all me — I just thought it would be funny to give him a little push so he could get a good picture.”
Which is essentially the foundation of a good relationship: always being there to encourage your loved one to go the extra mile.
