I checked that item off my list a few weeks ago on a rainy Sunday night. :)
|There are 23, 274 results on weheartit for "kiss in the rain". I chose this one because of the black hoodie which he wore that night HEHEHE|
Just the thought of him makes me ridiculously giddy with, um, love. You know that feeling when your heart feels like a big balloon that's almost bursting with air? Yeah, he makes me feel that way.
If you'd told me a year ago that I could ever feel this way, I'd have thought you were drunk and/or delusional. I'd have told you that I was too selfish and self-absorbed to be in a relationship, that I was insensitive to others' feelings, that I couldn't even take care of myself, let alone someone else.
Okay, I still am all those things. The big difference is that I'm working on changing them.
Whenever I date someone new, my friends' typical reaction is one of suspicion. They've seen me be a brokenhearted emotional train wreck and they know it is not a pretty sight, so whenever I tell them about a new dude, they ask lots of questions and tell me that if he hurts me, they'll kick his ass.
Choice lines they employed for #23:
Oy, wag mo sasaktan yang si Ela ah! -Gab
Wag mo sasaktan si Ela! Physically ha. Okay lang emotionally, kaya namin yun. -Aya *points her finger threateningly*
Wag ka lang gaguhin niyan kundi I'll pluck out his eyes à la Pai Mei! -Peter Angelo
I find it sweet that they're so protective of me.
This post is very cheeseballs, I know, but I need to write this down so if things don't work out with #23, then I can always look back on it as a learning experience: that no matter what, I am loved and cared for by these amazing people.
(Ugh, this has been too emotionally revealing.)
