I think it’s about the right time that I answer these questions. I have been nagged about these inquiries for the last few months by a number of people, so eto na, here’s your entertainment.
“Ano Gel, ready ka na ba ma-in-love ulit?”
Hindi ko alam. Falling in love catches you off guard; you’re never ready for it. Right? Am I right? But for the sake of giving a solid answer, I would say that I am not ready to fall in love yet. As much as I would like to be surprised by a familiar sentiment, I like being single muna. My previous relationship lasted for 7 years (8 years?), and I think it’s fair that I take a long rest. Pwede ko namang ipagdamot sarili ko muna diba? (Wow ipagdamot? Habulin? May abangers? Haha. K for kapalmuks.) Ang saya ko ngayon kasi ngayon lang ako nagkaroon ng oras talaga para sa sarili ko, at ang dami ko ring gustong gawin for myself and with my family and friends. I want to travel and I want to enjoy the entitlement of making decisions on my own. I believe that I am already reaching the height of my career path and I want to enjoy the benefits of it. I want to travel. AT LEAST maka Eat Pray Love muna ako bago magka-boyfriend.
But then again, I like surprises.
“Have you really moved on?”
The one question that I seldom answer straight. Tanungin ka ba naman then sabay gatong ng pang-aasar “Naka move on ka na ba? Hinde diba?” Haha. Although I would understand the humor behind it. After all, it was a 7 year on and off relationship. How would I even have the time and space to move on then during the off phases?
But with all seriousness and sincerity, I believe that I have. Deep down inside, there’s a mini me who’s currently doing fist pumps and chanting “Finally, victory is mine!” Gladly, I would consider this as one of the milestones in my adult life and I could not be more proud of myself for being firm in making the final decision.
If there’s anything I’m in love about, it’s my disposition.
The good and bad memories have already been stored and locked in whatever wooden chest you can creatively imagine about.
And I mark my words when I say this, I am so happy that I am finally out of aches.
“May mga nagpaparamdam ba?”
I find it hard enough to dwell in this question, kasi naman baka mamaya assuming ako diba? Considering that some men can be shady and hello naman sa word na ‘mga’. Most likely nga WALA eh.
This answer is possibly the most humble way I could say it: Uhm, ewan.
Yes I’m probably being indifferent because my main concern is myself. However I do adore that a certain someone takes the extra effort to make me smile/laugh whenever he gets the chance. Hey, thanks.
