An open letter of a #hopeless #romantic


dear cupid,

Its been a while since i last sent you a letter.  I may have been traumatized with the last guy you sent me.  Yup its true, its a whirlwind romance but he threw me in a loop and now i don’t know if ill ever recover.

I’m not choosy, just to lay my cards straight.  it just so happen that i’m trying to find a chemistry to the next fellow who sends SMS / IM or message but the pizzas is simply not there.  Plus, im bottom and i’m trying to find the next eligible TOP but they are too low in numbers.  Some pretend they are TOP but low and behold – lies of all lies, they are “FREAKINLY BOTTOM”.  I don’t think that we can spell “happy ever after” if we both were looking for TOP.  I guess this house can only accommodate ONE BOTTOM and that’s me.

true… i admit Mr. Cupid.  IM AFRAID!

my friends often wonder, why?

there’s no harm being single.  as for me, the last time i had a serious relationship was… ( thinking… i forgot na).  Just like what Jack of Will and Grace often said “if you have to think for at least 3 seconds then that’s too long ago”

admittedly… i am terrified.  I hate the fact of opening myself to another person and he wont reciprocate my feelings.  I’m horrified of the things i’m about to feel and at the end of the line – he will end up leaving me just like my last serious relationship.  I’m mortified by the fact that i am not good enough; not well endowed enough; not hunkier  that the other guy in PR or gorgeous than that fellow in Facebook.

honestly, i don’t know how to choose the right guy.  I just let destiny fill in the gap but i don’t think that she is helping me as well.

I just hoped that he would start knocking on my door … uttering “hey just saw you downstairs, i just cant help but wonder if i can get you number…”

But then again, this is the Philippines and i’mnot living in Florida or San Francisco where gays are far more forward with their feelings.  Am i doomed Mr. Cupid… or will i just take care of 9 cats and play solitaire till i finally close my eyes … FOREVER.

Mortified and horrified with my future… but i guess, i would be the last single gay guy in Valenzuela.

Yours truly,

AJ

 

piggy back ride with “boyfie”


its what we call piggy back ride.

Normally, we see this between a father and his son while having fun at the park or in a pool.  Often, straight men and women does this occasionally while strolling on their favorite avenue where they first met.  At times, we see a guy carrying a girl on his back during rainy days especially if she does not want her new prada shoes to be ruined by the flood.  In Korea and Thailand, the most romantic scenes are often portrayed during the ‘piggy back’ sequence.  I bet you remember this scenes:

Hit Korea-novela Kim SamSoon
a scene from “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” starring Mario Maurer

but how about a guy carrying another guy on his back.

a guy from work posted a picture on his FB and he tagged it “Boyfie”.  

and they say they are just “friends” – as in GOOD FRIENDS

Im smelling something “fishy”

yeah they are friends, like the guys i posted below:

5 handy checklist bago ka ma fall-in-LOVE


Alam ko… super gusto mo na yung bagong guy sa work or sa class nyo.  Na sa tuwing dadaan siya sa harapan mo ay parang nag-slow motion ang bawat segundo at sa di mawaring kadahilanan ‘ a sudden gush of wind blows your hair’.  Minsan mo na siyang nakausap at muntik ka ng matunaw dahil SIYA NA NGA BEKI ang pinakahihintay hintay and dinadalangin sa poong maykapal kaya naman kahit may kalyo na ang mga tuhod mo, go ka pa rin sa pagrorosaryo.

Kaya eto ka na…handing handa na to GIVE LOVE A CHANCE…

PERO HEP HEP HEP… bago ang lahat.  Basahin mo muna itong LIMANG CHECKLIST na hinanda ko para sayo bago ka magpaka-lukaret sa bago mong BOY TOY.


1. Know him well. Baka naghahanap lang siya ng ‘kalinga’ habang hindi sila OK ng EX niya.  Mahirap naman na nagkapag-invest ka ng bonga sa bago mong Papa – financially and emotionally, eh bigla ka niyang iwanan dahil nagkabalikan sila ng dati niyang dyowa.  Pero have no fear mare, dahil madaling malaman ang ganitong lalaki.  Yung mga tipong always BIDA BEST ang mga EX nila sa lahat ng conversation nyo and to think one week pa lang silang kabre-break.  Pag ganito ang sitwasyon, ayyyyy…scary.


2. Ingat sa mga PA-SWEET or PA-YUMMY. Naku po ang dami nyan and I know someone sa work na ganyan.  Huwag na huwag magpapagoyo sa mga ‘PA-FALL’ na tao.  Kuwidaw ka sa mga taong ganyan dahil imbes sa Bed of Roses ka bumagsak eh sa BANGIN ka niya itulak.  Ito yung mga taong ang tawag ko ay ‘PATAKAM’. In fact, may mga ganitong mga STRAIGHT na gustong may mga admirers dahil they feel somehow relevant.  Medyo mahirap ma-detect ang mga ganito.  I even call them ‘SMOOTH OPERATOR’.  Aalam nila kung saan ka nila lilinlangin and alam nila agad ang mga weakness mo.  Be very afraid mare.


3. Know something about his past. Halungkatin ang history ng lolo mo.  Malay mo, isa lang pala itong revenge sa dating dyowa niya na umiwan sa kanya.


4.  Know your status. Dahil hindi sa lahat ng oras ay kailangan ng ‘RELASYON’


5.  Control your feelings, suppress if necessary. Dahil hindi lahat ng maganda sa pakiramdam ay ‘TAMA’.  Huwag kang parang hayok na GRAB NA LANG GRAB.  Hindi na baling maghintay ng ilang taon basta ba when you finally meet him ay ISANG BUONG TAO ka na gurl.   Di ba nga ang sabi ‘TRUE LOVE LIES TO PEOPLE WHO KNOWS HOW TO WAIT FOR THE RIGHT TIME’.
