10 Things We Love About You
Okay, ladies, admission time. We guys know that you are already aware of the maddening effect you have on us, so please don’t even try to deny it. We love you gals, and that’s a fact. But why is this so? Well, Candy asked the same question, and went straight to the source—guys—to pry out the answers. Get the knowledge, enhance yourself, and make yourself even more irresistible to us poor saps!
10. The looks.
Let’s start off with the most basic reason for us to go gaga over you—how you look. Sure, some of you are probably crying foul already, but it’s a fact. Have you ever seen a not-so-good-looking crush ng bayan? But rest assured, this is only the tip of the iceberg, in the same way that you ladies notice a boy’s looks first before finding out everything about him.
Top tip: Alternate between looking girly and looking like “one of the guys”—we’ll love that you look ready for any gimmick.
9. The brains.
We’ll let you in on a secret—we already know a lot of you are smarter than us. Yes, we admit it, and what’s more, we love it. The stereotypical valley-girl bubblehead is fun for a while, but in the long run, we want to be with you brainy babes. And while it seems like we’re intimidated at times, we really do love hanging out with a smart girl.
Top tip: Do the right thing and read up in school—it gets you in good with your folks, and us boys will always need a tutor!
8. The empathy.
When a guy goes to guy friends with a problem, he leaves with the sound of laughter ringing in his ears. But when he opens up to girls, the soothing sounds of empathy and understanding are all that he hears. You have a way of listening that makes us feel you care, and it’s great to know that we can make sumbong to you about anything.
Top tip: Guys talk to girls when they need sympathy, OR maybe want to get their foot in the doorway. Be guided accordingly.
7. The love of sappy movies
Why anyone would want to pay over P150 for the chance to cry at some sappy movie remains a huge mystery to us. But in spite of our mockery, we secretly love that you shed tears for Bea and Kim. We find it incredibly endearing that you feel so deeply for characters in romantic situations that are often too wild to be true. And so while we may joke about your watching the latest tearjerker, we never really discourage you from doing so.
Top tip: The next time you’re gearing up to watch whatever love story happens to be playing at the moment, invite a guy friend. He’ll put up a fight, but eventually give in.
6. The shopping.
You have to admit, you girls spend a lot of time in malls. We usually end up waiting forlornly on a bench, or lugging around your shopping bags. But while we may not look happy, we’re really very amused. Waiting on you while making snide comments, carrying your stuff—it all makes us feel like such manly men. And if we can get a free lunch and/or some fashion tips out of the trip, so much the better!
Top tip: A spontaneous meeting at the mall can be a great thing. If he volunteers to help you with your shopping on a whim, he just might be into you.

There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
