On the first quarter of 2007, Rayver started courting Shaina.At that time, many were expecting that they will end up together considering that Rayver was very serious of his intentions to Shaina. There were news that John & Shaina were already on for four months, but they both denied it, as John still has a girlfriend, and Shaina insisted that Rayver is the only one courting her and she just considers John as a good friend.It was in the middle of 2007 when UD4 switched and exchanged partners. Some people also witnessed that during UD4’s mall shows, John & Shaina will sit beside each other, and after a while they will be caught talking and chatting with each other.
Though they were paired with a different loveteam, most of the time they are together.
They would also catch themselves talking with each other on the phone even late at night.
Because of that, John’s feelings towards Shaina started to develop.
John Lloyd and Liz had a very movie-like meet cute (P. That's a scenario where two individuals meet in an unlikely yet charming way) having met at the Hong Kong International Airport.
Their relationship lasted for three and a half years and they are said to have remained very good friends..
