LOVE IS SWEETER THE SECOND TIME YOU FALL

I once had a girlfriend. You know, one of those cheesy high school love stories. But it didn't last that long. She has her priorities and sadly, I'm not one of them. I was really, really hurt. (TIP: If you have a high school sweetheart going to a different school, do yourself a favor and break up.) But I think letting her go was the smartest thing to do. We stay friends though. Now she's just Facebook-stalking me. LMAO. But I discovered in one of those random Facebook talks that she doesn't consider our "relationship" a relationship. Wow, it caught me by surprise. Yes, we're young and innocent back then but I fell in love with her and I'm sure of that. And I thought she felt the same way too but I was wrong. Oh well, now, I don't care. Shikes, I sound so bitter. LMFAO.


After that a-week-and-four-days relationship, I gave my achy breaky heart a rest. While some boys cross stitched from one relationship to another like they are just changing their underwears, I chose not to exert effort at all and just let Cupid do the hunting for me. (Anyway I still ruminate that single guys should not automatically be declared as torpe or worse, gay. That's bigotry.) It took Cupid five years but I'm not on a rush. Love is not a game. It's about finding the right person at the right time and under the right circumstances.

Being taken is not a matter of choice; it's being single that it. Not unless a girl proposed her undying love for me before my 20th birthday, I will be single 'til ad infinitum. (Sorry but I cannot disclose her name here. Our parents will surely freak out. She's almost three years younger than me.)

We met last summer. We were seatmates in a PUV. She was with a friend. It was love-at-first sight. She opened her hands. She was suggesting me to hold her. With no second thoughts, I gave in. I held her hands for about 30 minutes. Lower those eyebrows honey, yes, it's weird 'cos we barely know each other but heck, I fell in love with her hard. I mean hard.

On the 16th of May, she officially became my girl. We're kind of fast - no, she was fast. Maybe she completely understands that she's getting a quality boyfriend. LMAO. No, seriously, I've waited long enough for this to come. I won't let this girl slip through my fingers again. I may not find a girl like her again in the future.

I would like to think that I already found my soulmate if there's such thing. We have a lot of similarities and common interests, I think she's Hoobert 2.0. LMAO. Little things amuse her and I like that in a girl. Though she's a self-admitted selosa, she's not the kind of girl that will keep checking me out every minute 'cos I find it very annoying. Anyway, she don't have to worry about me straying because I will show zero interest to anyone. We've just been together for almost three months but we're very comfortable with each other. There's no dull moment when we're together. Actually, she's fast becoming my best friend. When I'm kind of pissed, she's there to listen to my problems, no matter how small. When we go out, we split cost on stuffs without making a big deal out of it. When we're having disputes, she's willing to talk it out and help me see her side of things.

Ever since she came up, I never imagined my life without her. Seriously. Her existence is meant to complete my existence. There's this one time, after we had dinner, we went out for a stroll. Her arms were around me, it was raining. We were looking at each others eyes. That's the time when I realized that, oh man, I wanna spend the rest of my life with this girl.

Call me freak. Call me love sick. Call me weirdo. I don't care. Ganito pala kapag inlove, it seems that I became a different person. And I believe that she brings out the best in me. And that's what true love is - loving the person you become as a result of the person you are with. I'll admit that I'm not an ideal boyfriend, far from it. I've only had one relationship prior to ours so don't expect me to be smooth in any means. I don't know how long we'll be together or how we'll break-up. The only thing I'm sure of is hers is the only name I need to memorize. <3

Hello baby! Happy 16th. I love you so much. We're really meant to be. This is our fairytale, you and me, together.

T<3M forever. Love will keep us together. Let's keep the love burning!

Do monthsaries really matter to you?

As for me, not really. 'Cos I can't be counting months if I believe you'll be together forever.

Bigla naman akong kinabahan dun sa "I hope this love would last". Parang napilitan lang. Haha!

Ganyan talaga 'pag may nagpapaligaya sa'yo, inspired na inspired ka to do things. Kaya dapat manligaw ka na din Ate Kura-ching. LOL. Biro lang.

I love you Ate Kura-ching! <3

SunnyToast said...

Good to hear that your inlove, I remember one of my friend suggest that in a relationship you shouldn't be counting kung ilang months na kayo or year coz it feels like my expiration date....hehehe...just enjoy the moment and tama ka..spread love:)


By the way, I'm not model some people are really born to do that but I'm not one of them:) wish ko lang....hehehe:)

Following you now:)

Chyng said...

falling in love is a gift. bonus points pa if the one you love- loves you back. ♥

Hoobert the Awesome said...

Lahat ng in-love na guys e talagang makaka-relate dito. LMAO. Hmmm. I wonder Kuya Goyo kung bakit nagiging corny and mushy ang isang tao 'pag nai-inlove. LOL. Maitanong nga kay Kuya Kim.

Hoobert the Awesome said...

O, thank you PSB! I appreciate it.

Sana nga mas magtagal pa kami. It's really difficult to maintain a long-distance relationship pero I'm trying my best not to stray around. :))) Hahaha.

She's really lucky. But I'm luckier. :)

Hoobert the Awesome said...

Hey Sunny Toast! Yes, that's really a good point. And I think, di naman importante kung ilang days/months/years na kayong magkasama. It's about the memories you made together. When a relationship is new, it thrives on novelty but when years pass and you still choose ti keep your relationship, then it becomes something that deserves to be celebrated.

You're not a model? Wow, you're like one. Ako model. In my freaking dream. Hahaha.

Di ka nagkamali na i-follow ako. Thank you. Exchange link tayo. :)))

Hoobert the Awesome said...

It is really a gift Ate Chyng. It is not everyday that you meet someone you will fall in love with. And at the same time, will love you back.

I'm lucky indeed.

krn said...

Kristeta ♥ (kalokang Pinay) said...

What a sweet love story. I strongly agree with what you said that true love brings out the best in a person =) And we never celebrated monthsaries... we're after the big celebrations! Good luck & stay happy and in love =)

Pinoy Boy Journals said...

whatever happens don't be one of those sad people who've never fought for love. Loving someone is the greatest thing and backing away or fearing it, is the saddest thing in the world. Continue loving; whether you win or lose, at least you walk away happy and content for you've done what's right. :)One day, you'll laugh at it and feel less lonely. But you shall never forget. You won't be where you are without it.

Hoobert the Awesome said...

Awww, thanks for that KRN! Yes, I'll be happy 'cos I'm with her.

I am just so inlove! LMAO.

Hoobert the Awesome said...

Is it sweet? LOL. It was a whirlwind romance actually.

True Kristeta. I read it somewhere and I fell inlove with the line. LMAO.

Thanks!
