Whenever I feel like talking about dating/relationships in general, the first people I usually message are my friends. I'd hit them up on Telegram and we'd just randomly start our kuwentos about the most random things. From sharing kilig moments to decoding guys' messages, and even to the point where we'd end up low-key stalking our online matches, marami-rami na rin kaming napag-usapan, lol! I'm so, so thankful for these *insightful* convos with my BFFs. But tbh, they aren't always a call or message away. Buti na lang, I found another ~reliable source~ for relationship advice: TikTok! Yes, there's more to the app than dance challenges, easy recipes, and life hacks. There's relationship content, too!
