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 →
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.
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?
