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 →
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…
Toni Gonzaga as Ginny and Piolo Pascual as Marco in a scene from ‘Starting Over Again.’ Screen capture from movie trailer.
“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…
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…
In my LIT103 class, we were asked to advice Mr. Mallard—a character from the short story A Story of An Hour by Kate Chopin—about how to keep a happy relationship. I ended up listing things a guy should do to keep his woman happy. I made my professor read it and she said it was like reading a magazine post. Nonetheless, I’d love to share to you guys what I wrote for my LIT103 class 🙂
Some of the strongest romantic connections are spontaneous, start fast and move very quickly to falling in love. However, when you’re falling in love, you’re likely not worrying about the important issues that when they come up later can be a recipe for disaster. I’ve always gone back and forth with questions that you should ask and when you should ask them. Most of the questions that I’m going to list here in this post aren’t first-date questions; it’s probably way too invasive. When I’m talking to someone about their relationship, I’m always certain to figure out if they know the answers to these questions. I think there are just certain things that you guys should know about each other.
1. What are you like when you get upset?
Every couple should spend time figuring out what happens when their significant other is upset. What are those things that upset…
In a relationship, quarreling is normal. It can never be avoided. Why is that so? Well, we all have different opinions towards things. We can’t always agree with each other—not even with the person we most love—and sometimes it leads us to quarrel or argue.
Some people think that relationships that have a lot of fights or quarreling mean that their relationship is unhealthy. I think that’s a wrong way of looking at it.
When you fight or argue, you get to release what you really feel. You get to tell the person why you’ve been acting strangely all of a sudden. You get to know why that person’s been avoiding you. You get to know his/her side of story…etc.
I’m not saying that fighting is always good. Fighting is good when you know how to deal with it properly. Fighting is a temporary thing. It shouldn’t be an everyday thing, otherwise, what’s the point of being together? Isn’t the reason why you’re with someone is because you want to be happy together?
How do you know that you’re in love? How do you know that you are loved? How does love even really feel?
Love is a feeling that cannot be clearly explained. Being in love is something that makes you happy; makes you smile at the end of the day; makes you a better person. Being loved or being in love is something everybody wants and needs. Continue reading →
