“Kate, I'm not always the best at expressing myself to you, so I'm taking advantage of the fact that I will be completely unresponsive when you read this, and therefore incapable of messing things up. When I first saw you, I knew I had found something incredible. You are more wonderful and lovely in my eyes than you ever were before; and my pride and joy and gratitude that you should love me with such a perfect love are beyond all expression, except in some great poem which I cannot write.” ― Woodrow Wilson “Though I love you to the core of my being, so thoroughly that every cell comprising me aches to be near you, I must accept that we can never be together. I will bring you the best of fruits, the tenderest deer, the finest meats that roam the jungle. If I had the right, I would forbid you to go anywhere without me. And now I'm left to count the days until I take it back from you, kiss by kiss.
And since then all I've wanted was to be with you as much as possible. And seeing you happy again in the days we've been back together makes me think I did the right thing. I wish I could transform myself into a normal man and be there for you, always, without the trauma that defines my life as "the walking dead." Since that isn't possible, I can only reassure you that I will do everything in my power to make it up to you. I have no idea what that will mean, exactly, but I'm looking forward to finding out. For our existence parallels the sun and the moon—a temptation in constant, beautiful view, yet if the sun were ever to kiss the moon it would devour the heavenly orb whole. Then I would dare taste your lips and be happy for my last and final joy! Not out of selfishness, but because being apart from you is like trying to live without breathing. Winterborne” ― Lisa Kleypas, “Not the letter again?
But, did you ever stop to think that they know they’re shit? You think that girl bought Louboutins to impress her man?
In fact, sometimes they literally tell you they’re shit, by saying they’re not looking for commitment, or that they’re bad texters, or whatever. If you’re reading Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala outfit reminded us all that you should never, ever dress yourself for a dude.
Dedicating a song will help you indirectly convey the things you want to say. This takes some effort though, but you’re free to place a number of songs according to your choice and the message you want to convey.
Just as love has many forms, the music industry has provided us with a whole repertoire of love songs, whose existence spans the entirety of popular music. Slip it into your crush’s desk at work, in their locker, drop it at the doorstep or ask a courier to bring it to them.
On the other hand, the Filipino man fears rejection by a woman and would like to avoid losing face and embarrassment.
The teasing is done by peers or friends of the couple being matched.
Furthermore, this "testing phase" also helps a man who could be "torpe", a Filipino term for a suitor who is shy, "stupid", and feels cowardly, and is innocent and naïve in how to court a woman.
However, this type of admirer could overcome his shyness and naivety by asking for the help of a "tulay" (Filipino for "Bridge", whose role is similar to that of the Wingman in Western Cultures), typically a mutual friend of both the suitor and the admired, or a close friend of both families.
Everyone knows what cuffing season is, but have you heard of the springtime splits? Then, at least, you feel really skinny even if you’re sad.
Unless, of course, you’re the type of person who mourns a heartbreak by not being able to stomach anything.
