Wala lang

May kilala po ako, isang babae, who could have been FINALLY happy, with a guy who was wonderful and caring and perfect and earnest and sincere, and who promised to take care of her forever. But this girl, she turned down the chance.

Most probably because she’s still holding out for Carrie Bradshaw-esque “real, rock-my-boat, consuming, can’t-live-without-you-love.” And she has this ludicrous, hare-brained, delusional idea that in this imperfect world, she’ll actually find it.

May pagka-adik lang talaga. Maluwag turnilyo. Matigas ang ulo.


  1. tell your friend that i wish for her that she finds what she seeks. and tell her further-more that i am sure she will find it because she is a good person with a kind heart. she will always be a dear friend to me and I hope she knows that she can count on me too for anything. tell her too that she should take better care of her health.


  2. salamat po.

  3. ha? delusional ba ang “real, rock-my-boat, consuming, can’t-live-without-you-love”?ohmeeeehn.

  4. May kilala rin ako na ganun. Sana mabasa niya ito…. Naka-relate ako. :p

  5. golda – baka nga hindi. ewan, hehe.

    bonn – hmmm. kwento mo sa akin yan minsan ha.

  6. sabi nga sa dream for an insomniac, “unless it’s mad, passionate, extraordinary love, it’s a waste of your time. There are too many mediocre things in life and love shouldn’t be one of them.” yun lang, chinky! 🙂

  7. yeah, we’re gonna get mad, passionate, extaordinary love. dahil, sabi nga ng friend ko, “we wont have it any other way” (flip hair)

  8. Aaaw, Jae. Your friend is still young and helplessly preoccupied with other things aside from a long-term relationship. She hates regimen, first, and second, completely fears the idea or possibility of her being a bad girlfriend. Naturally, she will find that last sentence absurd. Such is denial. Although she may seem like the poster girl for Betty Crocker, this girl simply does not want to be hitched. Her hunger for danger, her insanely busy weekdays, her crazy and spontaneous weekends, and her sudden flights of fancy (that could sometimes lead to insatiable bouts of shopping for trinkets and other things useless) and all else about her that spell S-E-X-Y, can not and will not let it happen. Not yet, at least. That said, I wish nothing but happiness to that wonderful, caring, earnest, perfect gentleman. Everyone deserves to be happy.

  9. she doesnt fear the idea of being a bad girlfriend. (and no, it’s not denial!)

    rebuttal on other points coming up very shortly, and over cellphone.

    absolute agreement on the last two lines, though. 🙂

  10. who says we have to settle for somebody just because they will love us unconditionally and take care of us etc etc etc?

    i’d wait (or look for) my “real, rock-my-boat, consuming, can’t-live-without-you-love”.

    and if i can’t find him then c’est la vie! the waiting and searching was worth it – kahit walang reward 🙂

    well, that’s just me 🙂

  11. hmmm… difficult to join in…

  12. I’m all for mad, passionate love too! Kilala ko ba yung kilala mo? Kausap ko ata sya kahapon… 🙂

  13. Yung rock the boat thingie? Madalas ding may aftermath yan: lunod.

  14. pwede naman mag-ingat eh. 🙂

    teka… happy birthday, bobby!!! buti nabasa ko comment mo, naalala ko tuloy. hehe. i love you! thanks for being a great friend and for, in fact, teaching me, by example, to rock the boat sometimes (though hindi ito boat-rocking na love-related) mwah!
