Don’t get me wrong, ha. I love my life, and Raviv and Randy are my life. But tonight as I read this chiclit by Emily Griffin while Randy is beside me fast asleep, I have this irrational urge to wake him up and ask, “Babe, bakit hindi ka na nagseselos ngayon?!” I’m just fighting that urge because I don’t think he’d be actually up and about to tell me something that would make me giddy and lightheaded and sleep with a smile tugging at my lips. If anything, baka (or malamang) ma-bad trip pa siya sa paggising ko sa kanya! :p
But you know what? If you are still single, you can actually text something silly like this to your boyfriend–or boylet–and he would probbly reply something that would give you butterflies in your stomach. Yiiiii! Grabe, ako ang kinikilig para sa inyo!
Actually, I have several single friends. Almost all of my close friends are in fact, still single. And when we get together, they would sometimes tell me how jealous they were of me, having a steady relationship and building a family and all. But you what my usual answer is? It has always been: “Stop panicking as to why you still do not have a wedding band on your ring finger. Enjoy your bachelorette days as much as you can. Enjoy the rollercoaster ride of emotions: remember when there’s drama, there’s kilig. And while rollercoasters make one dizzy, the heart-thumping and the adrenaline rush are nakaka-miss, promise!”
Again, let me reiterate that I’ll never exchange what I have with Randy for anything. But I’m sure other contented wives would agree with me that they also miss “the field”: the “He loves me, he loves me not” analysis, the art of flirting, and what used to be my favorite: the somewhat sadistic pleasure of making a manliligaw or a new boyfriend jealous (which often got me in serious trouble. Hehehe). Ayiii ayiii ayiii ayiii!!! Ang fun kaya nun!
Exhibit B, however, made you smile goofily. And I know you wanted to smirk at the “Jeje Royalty”, but the butterflies in yourand you could not help being giddy. Aminin!
Before: Sweetheart, you’re the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen!Now: Bakit parang hindi ka fresh these days?
Before:(text) Sweetheart where are you? (Then after one minute of silence from me, na sinasadya ko) Sweetheart can I call? I’m now worried…Now: (text) Uwi ka na. Umiiyak na si Raviv.
Before: (over the phone) OK, sige goodbye. Love you! Ibaba mo na ang phone…sige na ikaw na muna…ikaw na. (Repeat this mga 20x)Now: O sige na bye bye na! Mage-expire na yung unli ko (sabay baba agad ng phone).
Pero promise, nakaka-miss pa rin talaga ‘yung mga pa-tweetums na kababawan ng mga nasa courtship stage.
So yeah, enjoy your blessed singleness! Because when you’ve found the one, say adíos to the thrill of the chase. I definitely did, because I do not ever want to jeopardize what I have with my “the one”.
Again, enjoy the rollercoaster ride!
Tell me what you think!
