...Hours later (Part 3)

Mr. B: Take a risk with me. I love you. Be my boyfriend.
Pat: So... I guess the monthsary would be every 24th of the month.

After more than three (3) years of singlehood...
After one (1) year of trying and failing...
After one (1) month and twenty-four (24) days of dating...
November 24, 2010...
Mr. Brightside is now in a relationship

Re: Seriously Speaking (Part 2)

Hey Pat,

I miss you too. Don't worry I don't find it clingy, extreme or over top. I find it sweet. You are sweet Pat (consistently).

I think I told you before that I would not mind spending time with you, even on a daily basis; I wouldn't grow tired of it. Even if we run out of things to say to each other, exhausted every corny joke there is and run out of things to do, just to be beside you would be enough for me.

I appreciate you and the things that you do. With you I experienced certain ‘firsts’. Like the time you drove to Antipolo to show me the beautiful sight of Manila by night. The time you accompanied me going home through commute. And recently, you gave me a rose stem. I may not express my gratitude in the best way possible, but rest assured that I am grateful. On top of these, there are three things that I want to thank you for:

1. Thank you for being jolly / comedic. When I’m with you, happiness is amplified by
a 100x and a stressful situation turns into a fun one.
2. Thank you for making me feel comfortable enough to show you what I really am.
3. Thank you for allowing me to step into world. A prolonged stay would be highly

Looking forward to more kulit, fun, crazy, romantic, intimate and unconventional moments with you.

Mr. B

I like you Pat, very much.

Message: Seriously Speaking (Part 1)

Hi Mr. B,

I miss you. Call it clingy, extreme or over the top but i'm just being honest. It was very easy to feel comfortable with you from the very first time I met you. I cannot deny the fact that you were entertaining to talk to, which never fails until now. You hit me with your charm- telling me that I will have a very good time whenever I'm with you. We've been dating a number of times already, watched few good movies, laughed at crazy situations, spent sleepless nights, delivered corny jokes, called each other names like "ToE" and even skipped diets everytime we go out.

I appreciate all the things you've done to make us work, event before that famous chocolate cake you brought at our office to the one you brought at One Esplanade, from that Pichi-pichi to the Christmas Lights Show at the Ayala Triangle. I may forget things as you know how I am but I surely appreciate them at that moment. And I appreciate you.

I'm really happy to have met you. To have held you hand while we're in my tinted car (Yey!), in watching movies, in the bus and even in the MRT. I like it when you kiss my forehead, when you thoughtfully give me an instant hug or you just kissed me instantly whenever you feel like it. I cannot forget the time at Eastwood when you forgot we were in a public place and you just went on tickling me. Hahaha!

I hope these moments will last. These are the times when we still are getting to know each other and so far it has been a very good journey. We started things of by betraying conventions on what to NOT talk about during the first dates and all. I'm happy we got along, we are on the same page. We clicked.

I like you. A lot.

The answer is...

This was his reply in relation to my previous post

Hi Mr. Brightside,

Exhibit A: I actually thought you were going to tell me that you were really a straight guy (while we were on a date).

Exhibit B: This was cleared already, I did point out to you after that, "I do walk straight" (I mentioned that I have knock knees...yup, piki ako) just so I get to be at par with what you did, so no worries, let's call it quits. haha

1) I am happy to have met you too, minus the fact that part of meeting and dancing with me was to really avoid another person. haha (please refer to this post)

2) It was my pleasure, that's one of the things I'm really good at, or at least I think.

3) Same here, you were very funny. Especially that part where you didn't want me to look at you while you sing. Enjoyed that BIG TIME. (I sang Gabe Bondoc's cover of Somebody to Love)

4) Thank you Mr. Brightside. It was really nice meeting you. I also find you cute. And I would have to second what BK said, you really look like you're cuddly. haha

I was nervous too when I saw you again, it felt a bit awkward seeing you again so I had to start speaking and all. I love the walk around Tomas Morato. It was a good night.

Sorry for keeping you that late, I find you very entertaining and interesting to talk to. =)

Yes. But only if you sing to me a whole song and if Bezty (best friend ko since high school a.k.a. my fag hag) won't get mad. =)

The question is...

Ngayon lang nagsink in... I said some pretty stupid things last night. (Mr. Brightside slaps his forehead)

Exhibit A: I have a thing for boobs
I really don't know where this came from. What gay guy in his right mind would say this during a first date? He might think that I am some weirdo, and I won't blame him. Heck, I think I'm a weirdo.

Exhibit B: Ever since I was a child, dentists think that i have a good set of teeth
Sinabi ko pa talaga siya after he shared about his over bite. How rude and insensitive of me. (Mr. Brightside slashes his wrist...kidding =D)

and many more, I bet.

To be honest, I was nervous prior and during the date. First date jitters, I guess. But I hope, despite the stupid things I said, that I was able to send the following messages:

1) Even though our meeting was accidental (please refer to my previous post), I am really happy that I met him.
2) I appreciate his effort to make me feel comfortable last night.
3) I enjoyed our conversation and his company.

and most important of all

4) I like him. I think he's cute and he has a wonderful personality, which I think is rare.

So now, the question is, would he go out with me for another date? (Mr. Brightside crosses his fingers while saying: please, please, please say yes)

Anong pangalan ng best friend ni Spongebob?

October 1, 2010, I texted Boy Kulot (BK for short...GBF dated this guy before we started dating) and Mr. Mature (Mr. M for short...friend ni BK, na naging friend ni GBF, na naging friend ko na din)...

"BK and Mr. M, gusto kong uminom at sumayaw na para akong may pinagdadaanan... haha... see you guys later"

Actually, hindi parang, may pinagdadaanan tlga ako nun, sort of. There was this guy, we dated for a month pero nagkalabuan since may hang-ups pa siya sa ex niya. So I suggested for some "time-off" (at ngayon mukhang indefinite na itong time-off na ito dahil halos one (1) month na kaming hindi nagkikita). Dahil medyo pagod na akong mag-isip at mag-emo, I needed to go to a place where I could void myself of thoughts and emotions. I needed to go to a bar, a gay bar to be exact.

October 2, 2010
at around 2am

We arrived at O-bar in Ortigas, the one near Metro Dorm (GBF used to live here, back in 2008...wala pang O-bar noon...I miss him, I miss my best friend).

Up-beat music + Dancing + Drinks + Cute boys = Perfect distraction

Being perfectly distracted was cut short when I saw GBF's ex, na college kabarkada ng best friend ko nung high school (my fag hag, universal fag hag to be exact, I will post something about her someday =D), na kakilala din pala ni BK, na kilala ako at hindi niya alam na PLU ako. Whew! Itago natin siya sa pangalang UG (Uber Gwapo)

Note: 1) Si UG ay hawig ni Derek Ramsey, with softer features
2) I have a thing for cute kalbo men =D

Since busy si Mr. M sa paglandi (later on nalaman namin na ayaw pala niya yung lumalandi sa kaniya),I voiced out my issue kay BK.

"BK! T@!#$%*! andito si UG, di niya ako pwede makita!"

You see, I have this belief/principle that the only people that may know about my sexuality are the ones close to me. In other words, hindi kami close ni UG at hindi niya kailangan malaman na PLU ako.

BK told me "Tara, let's roam around... I think I saw a former classmate, puntahan natin sila"

As we trod through the dance floor, I was very mindful where UG was situated, so that I could conceal my presence properly. Finally, we saw BK's former classmate and BK introduced me. His name is Patrick (Pat for dami ng sinabi kong tao at issues sa buhay ko, siya talaga ang subject matter ng post na ito =D). So I danced with him for a while, usap usap onti, then I decided to go back to where BK and Mr. M. But wait! Pag lingon ko sa kanila, hala si BK kausap na si UG (at sinabi niyang kasama niya ako... alam na!). So I turned around and continued dancing with Pat instead. Sayaw sayaw at usap usap ulit, I flirted with him a little, I told him "Remove your cap," he was hesitant at first but he eventually took it off. He's kalbo =D(please refer to Note 2 above). I couldn't resist, I rubbed his head (no pun intended). Sayaw sayaw and usap usap some more. After 30 to 45 minutes of dancing...

Pat: "Pagod na ako"
Me: "Do you want to step out for a while"
Pat: "Sure, sure"

Around 4am, we stepped out of O-bar and went to Starbucks. We sat and we just talked about work, educational background, past loves, etc. (btw napakanta niya ako ng di oras ng Mr. Brightside at Use Somebody... I guess naimpress naman siya =D) Di namin napansin 6:30am na! So we decided to part ways.

Almost two weeks after...

October 12, 2010, he officially asked me out
Pat: Can I ask for another thing
Me: It depends. What is it?
Pat: Next time na lang pala
Me: C’mon, tell me, don’t be shy
Pat: Ummmm, I’m not shy
Me: So ano yun?
Pat: Cartwheel
Me: What!? Haha… Fine, next time mo na lang sabihin
Pat: Are you malambing?
Me: Tough question.. uhm.. Yes? What do you think?
Pat: I dunno. Good night Mr. Brightside
Me: Good night Pat
Pat: Would you like to go out with me?
Me: I was going to ask you the same thing, pero sa Friday pa sana… so, yes
Pat: But I have a favor to ask
Me: What is it?
Pat: Can I not be one of those meaningless dates? (kinilig naman ako dito ng very light)
Me: Pat, pointless not meaningless, remember
Pat: Hope it won’t be pointless too
Me: You just made me smile… I hope so too
Pat: Oh. You still have to ask me If I wanna go out with you. Haha
Me: Would you like to go out with me?
Pat: Now? Haha
Me: Are you free Saturday night?
Pat: Yes.
Me: Then it’s a date?
Pat: Yes.
Me: Ok =D

Here I go again, wish me luck.

Pasablog!!! Why I started blogging

Sometime in December 2009...

It was an ordinary day, in an ordinary (aircon yung bus...haha) bus, going to an ordinary Makati (totally an understatement, Makati is awesome!). I sat beside this cute but grumpy looking guy (until now, he would contest that I did that on purpose because I wanted to flirt with him, which wasn't the case, yun na lang kaya yung available na seat at that time, feeler much). I have to admit though I made quick glances at him and he did too. After several glances, he wrote his number on a piece of paper and placed it in my left pocket. I texted him the moment I arrived in the office.

"Hi, I'm David, nice meeting you."

He replied:

"Hi, I'm December (not his real name), I'm only up for sex, nothing serious"

I was a bit shocked and a little turned off. Shocked because, he didn't look like the i'm-only-up-for-sex type, he seemed like a nice guy and turned off because, i'm not an i'm-only-up-for-sex type (most of the time). But I decided to play along. I said "Yep, me too, not looking for anything serious right now." A week went by, we exchanged messages on whether we could meet to do the "deed" but our sched was not in sync and his place was not available since his brother was always around. One Saturday night I asked him if he was available the following day, just to talk and get to know each other, fortunately he said yes. The following day we met, went to church together, had dinner and just talked. I was right, he was a nice guy, who had broken up with his on-and-off boyfriend for two years sometime in June 2009 (he caught the guy cheating for the third time and he too had something on the side... men, ugh! haha). I, on the other hand, after a two-year hiatus had recently opened up to dating. I told him that I was dating two other guys (My GBF and my college crush). Then he told me "stop looking, choose me, I'll make it worth your while"

I don't know what it was... Was it his sadness, was it what he said, was it the moon or the fact that we were in a relatively dark place... A kiss transpired... It was a good kiss, great actually.

A week would go by until our next meeting.

His brother went home to the province so he invited me to spend the weekend at his place. We chilled, watched movies, he showed me his blog (yep, isa siyang blogger), he cooked (it was decent...edible), we slept and we slept together/made love/had sex (whichever term/phrase you may prefer). It was one of the best weekends I had in a long time. Monday came, I had to go to work, he had to go home to the province to spend Christmas with his family. I left his place smiling, thinking, this may really be it, my search may be over. But apparently, circumstances would yet again pull a cruel joke on me.

December 27, 2009, after contemplating who among the three guys I'm dating will I choose to date exclusively, I chose December. He called that night and I told him that I chose him. I was expecting enthusiasm and happiness, but weirdly, he was quiet and gave an indifferent

"Ah ok."

I asked him what was the matter, he said "Tumawag si X, he wants to patch things up... I don't know what to do."

I said "Paano tayo?"

He said "Don't worry, aayusin ko to and I am considering you're sake... You've done a lot for me Dave."

After that conversation, a week would go by, a week of questioning whether he would choose me or X. What I did next was stupid...I hoped.

January 3, 2010, he came back here in Manila and invited me to come over because he bought "pasalubong" for me from his hometown, he also invited me to sleep over. I asked him "So.. are we still exclusively dating?" and he said "Yes" without any hesitation. I don't know why, I felt uneasy, I doubted his confident yes. The morning after, I woke up and prepared for work, December was still asleep since he doesn't have to go to work that day. I don't know what came over me, I suddenly had the urge to go through messages in his cell phone. Disclaimer: This was the first time I did this, normally, I don't invade people's privacy, but the urge was greater than my values. I saw several "I miss you" and "I love you" from a sender whose name is different from X, but I know it's him. I told myself "baka nangungulit lang or something." So I went through his sent items and what I saw voided me from all emotions I should be feeling at that moment. I decided to play cool and save the drama later.

"Iwan ko muna yung pasalubong mo, hirap dalhin eh, balikan ko mamaya."

I went to work and thought of a way how will I handle this... "bahala na"

I went back to his place, wanting to confront him. I don't know what was wrong with him at that time but he was "eager" for it, and I don't know what what was wrong with me, I gave in. Maybe it was my subconscious telling me "go ahead, this would be the last." Afterwards, I told him "you know, I did not go here for this, I actually wanted to talk to you, just talk." I told him what I did, what I found out earlier that day. He cried. He said he was confused and he does not know what to do. "Nahihiya ako sayo, hindi kasi ako makapili" he uttered. What would have been rational at that time was me choosing to end my quasi-relationship with December, instead, I said "Naiintindihan kita, and I'm willing to wait... Aayusin mo naman to diba?" He said yes, after the drama, I had to go home as his brother will arrive in a while.

3 weeks would pass, he became mores distant and cold. At the end of the 3rd week I texted him about the DVDs he borrowed:
Me: "Hi December, when can I get my DVDs back?"
December: "May i return them on Monday"
Me: "Ok, how are you doing?"
December: "I'm ok, I'm sorry"
Me: "Sorry for what?"
December : "For everything"

I understood the underlying message, he chose his ex.

Me: "I really want to say that it's ok, that I understand.. but right now I can't... Can I just get my DVDs back on Monday."

Monday came, he gave me the DVDs and said sorry... I just said "ok... bye" and walked away. I thought he was a jerk and I really hated his guts. We could have ended on a better note if he had just been honest. I can handle rejection, I've handled it many times before. I remember GBF telling me "Hindi ibig sabihin na nag-offer ang isang tao to exclusively date mamahalin ka na... at hindi ibig sabihin na hindi kaya mag-offer ng isang tao to exclusively date hindi ka na mahal." December was a mistake of epic proportions. I should have been patient with GBF. Regret, truly, can be found in the end.

I have to be honest. I made this blog so that one day he would read this post. I even followed some of his followers and made sure that at least five would follow my blog, so that one day he would stumble upon this post and make him realize he was a jerk. But apparently, he stopped blogging 2 or 3 weeks after I started this blog and after some time I finally accepted, understood and forgave.

So now, what's next? I think I finally accomplished the goal of this blog.
I guess I will write on, share my thoughts, my experiences, my "whatevers."
Another chapter of Mr. Brightside starts here. Here's to the brighter side of life.

Teaser: Pasablog!!! Why I started blogging

Bakit nga ba nagsimulang magblog si Mr. Brightside? At bakit ang emo emo nang batang ito?

I will quote Julie Andrews when she played Maria in The Sound of Music "Let's start from the beginning, a very good place to start."

Here's a teaser of my upcoming post...

Sometime in December 2009...

His brother went home to the province so he invited me to spend the weekend at his place. We chilled, watched movies, he showed me his blog (yep, isa siyang blogger... Pasabog! or should I say Pasablog!) and I read some of his posts, he cooked (it was decent...edible...hehe), we slept and we slept together/made love/had sex (whichever term/phrase you may prefer). Monday came, I had to go to work, he had to go home to the province to spend Christmas with his family. I left his place smiling, thinking, this may really be it, my search may be over. But apparently, circumstances would yet again pull a cruel joke on me.

Random thoughts

Ang sugat pinakamasakit kapag pagaling na

Haiku, hay naku

Rainy Thursday:
Come, saturate me now
Pour, quench my burning desire

Thoughts of a single guy

1. It is hard...
to get hurt by someone you love, it is painful
2. It is difficult...
to lose someone we've become accustomed to
3. But after the hurt we find strength
After the loss, we find ourselves again...
better than what we were before
4. There are things that you need to do alone...
Family and friends can only do so much...
It all boils down to you and the choices you make
5. Some people are meant to be apart for them to grow...
The question is, will that growth lead two people back to each other? Back to
Or will growth, time, circumstances lead them farther apart?
6. I am not expecting from anything from anyone anymore.
I've learned that the key to happiness is having lesser expectations.
That way, you're allowing yourself to be surprised.
7. I've learned that my happiness should not depend on someone else,
Because if that someone disappears,
So will my happiness
8. I've learned that when you love someone and that someone loves you back,
It doesn't mean you own the person...
It doesn't mean you have infinite chances...
One way or another, that person will eventually leave
9. Forever only exists in fairy tales,
In our vulnerable imagination,
In our "free-est" dreams,
In our hopeless romantic hearts,
But never in reality
10. Still...
No matter how shitty things may get
I will always believe...
Always hope...
Always yearn...
For my "happily ever after"

Why do I believe in crap?

I heard this statement from Toni Gonzaga when she was interviewed for the movie You Are the One (with Sam Milby aka Ultimate Crush)

"Falling in love, even at the wrong place and at the wrong time... If it's the right person you'll forget all of it"

Statements like the one stated above are poison to a hopeless romantic like me. Why do I believe in such fairy tales and castles-it's ok to take a risk-lovey dovey crap!? Why do I still believe? Minsan naiisip ko, disadvantage maging hopeless romantic, lalo na kung PLU ka. Sana pasex na lang ako. Sana etits ko na lang pinapairal ko hindi puso, kasi pag puso ang pinapairal, dehado.


Pasensya na, kailangan lang mag-rant.

Wonder by Jack Savoretti

I will serenade this song to someone someday ^_^

Saturday, June 26, 2010


Isn't it sad how much effort you put into forgetting someone? Kung saan lupalop ka pumupunta, kung sino-sino tinatagpo mo, kung anu-ano ang ginagawa mo para lang maging ok ka. Nagpapakalunod ka sa trabaho, nanood ng sandamukal na dvds, buong araw naglalaro psp, lahat gagawin mo para lang maalis ang isip mo sa taong nawala sa'yo. But at the end of the day, siya pa rin.

It's been three months since he left for Singapore. Siya ang GBF (Gay Best Friend) ko... and then some... but like he always tells me "you're more than a best friend to me."... he was more than a best friend to me... Naiintindihan ko siya kung bakit kailangan niya umalis, para sa mga pangarap niya at para sa pamilya niya. Ang di ko naiintindihan ay yung paraan kung paano niya ako iniwan. It was days before he left. I really blame the tequila, but more than the tequila i blame the kiss... dahil dun lahat ng pinilit kong ibaon na emotions resurfaced.

I loved him. I love him. He loved me, but not as much. He wanted an open relationship, i wanted exclusivity. I did not choose him, I chose someone else, who eventually made me regret. It was a mistake of epic proportions. Sana kumapit pa ako a little more. Sana I gave him a reason to stay.

Ngayon, i feel stupid for feeling these things. I mean wala nang sense. Di na siya babalik. Matagal siyang di babalik. Time will soon erase what we had. Mahirap pag kalaban mo oras na. Mahirap pag gusto mo pang ipaglaban, gusto mo pang umasa pero wala ka nang magagawa. All I'm left with is unnecessary emotions and the good memories tattooed in my head (and in my heart).

"...'Cause when a heart breaks no it don't break even, even no...
What am I supposed to do when the best part of me was always you
What am I supposed to say when I'm all choked up and you're ok
I'm falling to pieces
I'm falling to pieces"

Mahal kita.
Ikaw pa rin.

Nga pala...

Ay! Nga pala...may blog nga pala ako...hahaha

Mukhang inaagiw na ang blog ko sa tagal kong di nagpopost ng kahit anong kuwento, video at kung anu-ano pa. Kung tatanungin niyo kung bakit, isa lang ang sagot... Trabaho, trabaho, trabaho... Pero masaya naman ako at I'm aiming for promotion this July.

Nakakapagbasa naman ako ng mga posts ng mga 'finafollow' ko.. like sina Guyrony, Mugen, Soltero, Mcvie at kung sino sino pa... At apparently, may crush na ako kay BM dahil his posts never fail to put a smile on my face ^_^... so ayun nga nakakapagbasa naman ako pero di ako nakakapagcomment dahil gumagamit lang ako ng proxy sa office at it doesn't allow me to comment.

May mga plano na akong stay tuned ok... Au Revoir for now

To the best Mama in the whole world

As far as I can remember, every time I would write a mother's day card, I would always say that you will always be the best Mama in the whole world. At di na yun magbabago.

This post is for you Mama, for all the sacrifices, for saying the right words whenever I'm down, for being my number one fan and supporter, for being my best friend, for loving me unconditionally... Happy Mother's Day! I love you and I miss you so much ='(

(Eto ang unang Mother's Day na di ko kasama Mama ko sapagka't siya ay nasa Dubai, nagtratrabaho para sa lolo ko na may sakit at mahina na at para na din mas maging maginhawa ang buhay namin... I miss you Mama)

Try sleeping with a broken heart by Alicia Keys

"Have you ever tried sleeping with a broken heart? Well, you could try sleeping in my bed..."

Ewan ko ba kung bakit isang linggo ko nang naka repeat one sa ipod ko ang kantang to... Maybe because of the melancholic lyrics, the wonderful tune and Alicia Keys... or sadyang emo lang tlga ako..ah ewan...

Ang Tanong...Ang Sagot

Various family relatives: May girl friend ka na ba?

Mr. Brightside: Wala pa po...No time, no money (sabay commercial smile)

May katotohanan naman sa sagot ko. Una, wala naman talaga akong girl friend. Pangalawa, most of my time ay nauubos sa trabaho ko (pero masaya naman ako). Pangatlo, di naman talaga mataas ang sahod ko, sakto lang (uulitin ko, masaya naman ako sa trabaho ko...hehe) . Siguro, dapat ibahin nila yung tanong...

Mr. Brightside by The Killers

The first time I heard this song, I think it was back in 2006, it immediately became one of my favorites (I really like alternative/pop rock music). If the song was a drug it would be my upper... I would listen to it whenever i need to enter hyper mode (my course, and now my job is physically and mentally demanding). Some time later, I stumbled into a write up regarding the song (please read below)

"Killers guitarist Dave Keuning wrote this about lead signer Brandon Flowers' ex-girlfriend who cheated on him. Flowers recalled to Q magazine March 2009 how he discovered her with another man at the Crown and Anchor pub in his hometown of Las Vegas: "I was asleep and I knew something was wrong. I have these instincts. I went to the Crown and Anchor and my girlfriend was there with another guy." Flowers added that the song was "born" at the Crown and Anchor. (thanks, Hannah - East Kilbride, Scotland)" -

After reading the statement above, the song became my favorite not just because of the up beat melody and creative lyrics but also because of the story behind it. Being able to relate to the song made me realize... I'm Mr. Brightside

Enjoy the video ^_^

Random lesson

A lesson learned from bowling: Sa bigat ng dinadala mo, all you have to do is swing back and let go

Friday, March 19, 2010

The story so far...

I’ve been meaning to publish this post last January but I can’t seem to find the time or the inspiration to finish it. So maybe I’ll try to keep things as simple and concise as possible.

I expected to fall in love, not to fall apart

After two years of trying to make myself whole again, I expected the world would give me a shot at love/falling in love, I mean seriously, two years is a really long time. It all started last June 2009. I finally got over my ex-boyfriend and decided to start meeting people again, get back in the dating scene. I met good ones, bad ones and ‘what-the-hell-were-you-thinking’ ones. I had a fair share of wonderful first dates and followed by great second, third, fourth and so on dates after (even great sex). I don’t know if it’s me, them or the circumstances, but I can’t seem to ‘bring home the bacon.’

I want to share my experience during the last quarter of 2009.

I dated a guy (who happens to be one of best friends) who I considered as perfect for me, having the same wavelength and all, except that we did not agree on exclusively dating. We ended up going back to just being bestfriends.

I met another guy (which I had a crush on back in college, he used to be a student assistant at the library in the University I attended) who had a boyfriend when we started dating. Being a guy who had experience on being cheated on, I decided that we just stay friends.

The last guy I met in 2009, was ok, actually more than ok. He was the only guy who told me to stop looking. And that is what I did, thinking, this is it…finally I have found what I’ve been looking for. Little did I know he was still not over his ex and subsequently he dropped me off just like that. Last time I heard, he got back with his ex.

As traumatic as these may all be (being the hopeless romantic that I am) I am still expectant someday, one day…He will come.

For now…I’m taking a break (yet again) from dating…but still hoping for the best, because hey, I’m Mr. Brightside after all.
