Fans of the popular TV series have seen how Stokkies did his best to be the best support Ingrid has. And while he succeeded at it, he didn't manage to make her see him as anything more than just a friend. Poor guy's been #friendzoned.
Stokkies has been a pillar of strength for Ingrid for ages. He's the guy she can count on when things get tough, and he's always willing to help her.
He's also the guy that's seriously in love with her, but she doesn't seem to notice.
Since Ingrid doesn't acknowledge Stokkies feelings, he's stuck in that horrible place known as the friendzone. It's not a good spot to be for a guy who is so deeply in love.
We thought Stokkies would finally find happiness when Ingrid accepted his invitation to the year-end party for Safe n Clean, but that wasn't meant to be.
Ingrid had a 'real date' with a guy from the gym and bailed on Stokkies, leaving him heartbroken.
The poor guy decided to give up on his dreams of being with Ingrid, and it left viewers of the show feeling bad for him. Some fans found it funny though.
Here's what they had to say on social media.
