Reasons Why I Don’t Want To Date My Best Friend

Photo taken from: 4neverlasting.tumblr.com

Have you ever experienced being teased by people about you and your guy best friend? How they always make a fuss about the two of you being too close and how you guys are always hanging out? How they say that you two look cute together and you should date? Worse is that they mistake you for being a couple rather than being just friends—best of friends. Well, there is a thin line between love and friendship when it comes to guy best friends, for me at least.

You know how we experience a different kind of fun with our guy best friends; so much different from the kind of fun we get with our lady best friends? How conversations with him are different with your lady friends? Well, that’s the reason why I’m best friends with a guy. I’m not best friends with him because I like him in a romantic way.

People would always—and I mean always—ask me if I have feelings for my guy bestfriend. No. And never will I want us to be in that kind of relationship. Why? Continue reading

10 Signs You’re Dating An Immature Guy

I can totally relate to this!

I’m not talking about laughs-at-fart-jokes guy or lists-beer-pong-as-a-special-skill guy. This is all about the boy in a man’s body.

I recently broke up with my boyfriend [insert pity party here]. It wasn’t over some big dramatic fight, or because he was unfaithful, and it certainly wasn’t because I stopped loving him. All things considered, actually, he was a pretty great boyfriend. We broke up when it became obvious that we weren’t at the same point in our lives.

Despite being the same age, we were on different levels. It took me a while to realize that he just wasn’t mature enough for the relationship I wanted, but thanks to him I’ve learned what it’s actually like to date an immature guy.

1. You’re his first real relationship. He had a girlfriend or two in high school, but hasn’t dated since. If you’re his first girlfriend in the “real…

WHY PEOPLE CAN RELATE TO ‘STARTING OVER AGAIN’

This.

paulhenson

“Do we still have a second chance?  Naniniwala ka rin ba na (do you also believe)our love story deserves a better ending?”  And with that, Ginny (portrayed by Toni Gonzaga) turns the world of her ex-boyfriend Marco (Piolo Pascual) askew in the box-office hit movie ‘Starting Over Again.’

After four years, Ginny returns to Manila from Barcelona, and discovers that Marco has moved on.  He’s in a wonderful relationship with Patty (Iza Calzado).  To make the blows harsher, Patty turns out to be kind, smart, successful and, yes, “kamukha ni (looks like) Mama Mary.”  Life is indeed unfair.

Do we still have a second chance?  It’s a line, perhaps, that has been replayed many times in your mind when you think of your ex.  You might even…

“I think you just have your period”: Every Guys Solution

I’ve  been described as the grumpy cat—the girl who is a fan of cats and that very grumpy most of the time. I hate how my guy friends or even my boyfriend tells me that the reason why I’m off mood is because I have my period. It annoys me how this has become their everyday excuse for me. It’s not like I have my period everyday. I hate how they always say that I’m just PMS-ing, that’s why I’m mad or off mood. Did it ever occur to them that I am not in the mood for a reason?

20 Reasons Why We Are Best Friends

Me (left) and my BFF Nicole (right)

That’s me and my best friend, Nicole. We’ve been friends since high school. I was a transferee from an all-girls private high school, while she was a loyal student of my new school since kinder 1. The first time we met was the first time I had to commute going home because my school bus broke down. She was bus-mates with one of the first people I made friends with in school, Camille. Camille decided to go home with me, since I’m new to the whole commuting thing. Nicole, Camille and I were on the same jeep. Camille introduced me to Nicole, and the three of us chatted and laughed the whole trip going home. My mom decided that I stop riding the school bus because I’m already in high school, and the whole riding with Nicole and Camille became an everyday thing.

My friendship with Camille is another story, and I’m here to talk about my best friend Nicole. Nicole and I are very different. Our life stories are very different from each other. Our interests and perspective in life are also very different. Even our attitudes are different. This is why I’m always asked by people why am I best friends with her. I have so many reasons to give why she’s my best friend, but I’d love to share to you guys 20 reasons.

How To Be Great In Bed

1. Chemistry, Chemistry, Chemistry!

Aren’t we all guilty of sleeping with at least one person in our lives where the sex was just kind of meh? Everything went in the way it was supposed to and all of that but you were just kind of bored the whole time? You can fake an orgasm, sure, but you can’t really fake chemistry, can you? The difference between having sex with somebody because sex is a thing to do, yay, and having sex with somebody you have powerful chemistry with is what makes the deed so awesome. It could be that you really love the person, or maybe you are both ridiculously attracted to one another. Chemistry is key.

2. Compliment Them!

Everybody likes to feel good about their bodies. And what better time to dole out some awesome compliments than right during the act! I mean you don’t have to…

How To Be An Effective Leader

Last July 15, 2013 (Monday), I attended a leaders’ congress where prestigious speakers talked about how to be an effective and successful leader. Our guest speakers were law students and CPAs. They really delivered their talk very well—the content and the delivery was excellent—like how a good leader should. But I’m not here to talk about the Leaders’ Congress, I’m here to talk about the things I learned from that conference: HOW TO BE AN EFFECTIVE LEADER.
