12 Male Fail Moments
- Run like the wind
I was running on the gym treadmill next to a muscular guy who kept checking my speedometer. Every time I increased my speed, he’d increase his too. It was a silent competition... until he lost his footing! I laughed out loud at the sight of him clinging onto the machine, struggling to get back up. —Katlog, 19
- Sales boy
My barkada spied a group of girls looking at the latest PlayStation. After much prodding, I approached them to talk about the awesomeness of PlayStation. I wanted to invite them to the arcade to get to know them better, but then a girl said, "Kuya, you're so magaling mag-sales talk! How much is this?" My barkada caused a ruckus behind me. —Mario, 19
My girl friends and I went to Boracay after our high school graduation. We met a group of guys who wanted to chill with us. While we were island hopping, one of the guys lounged at the side of the boat, flexing his muscles and winking at us. My friend nudged me and pointed at something. I turned to look, and lo and behold! I discovered he wasn't wearing anything underneath his swimming shorts. Eew! —Kim, 17
- Early bird exorcism
We were required to exercise every morning after the flag ceremony. One day, my overly confident crush was asked to lead the exercises. He looked possessed as he showed off weird karate moves and yoga poses. For the grand finale, his pants split in two! The whole assembly cracked up and he ended up borrowing a pair of used jogging pants from a girl. —Kristin, 19
- Hang loose
A guy was trying to impress me by carrying the props we used for a skit. Everyone likes a gentleman, right? Just not one who exposes his flowery boxers and butt crack while grabbing stuff from the floor! —Elena, 19
- What goes around
My ex-boyfriend cheated on me with a girl he considered a trophy girlfriend. He'd flaunt her at parties and fairs, and I'd feel completely miserable. Imagine my joy when I found out she dumped him because he didn't pass the Ateneo College Entrance Test! —Sarah, 15
- Last resort
Summer was fast approaching and our class started discussing where we’d have our annual out-of-town trip. Everyone got excited when my crush offered her house in Australia. Thinking she was pulling our leg, I said, "Really? We have a resort there!" She turned to me and asked which one. I turned beet red and mumbled that it was just a joke. Apparently, she did have a house there! —Liam, 18
- Falling for you
I had the biggest crush on a boy in my English class. We were group mates for an activity, and he volunteered to present the report. I offered to do it with him, but he said loudly, "No, it's okay. Kaya ko 'yan! Ako pa!" Brimming with seld-assurance, he walked up to the blackboard… and accidentally tripped on someone's foot! He fell flat on his face in front of the whole class and lost all his confidence! —Ana, 18
- Fab footballer
My guy friend asked if I wanted to watch his soccer game. Before the game started, we hung out by the bleachers. I asked him to show me how to kick a ball. We went to the goal area and he told me to act as goalkeeper. He assured me I wouldn't get hit because he had great aim. As I stood there at the goal, he came running towards the ball and fell flat on his butt as he kicked it. Poor guy! —Gina, 17
- Memory malfunction
My brother was reading a book on how to enhance one’s memory for a debate he joined. He was being obnoxious, reading out loud, and announcing he could memorize so much in so little time. Finally, he left and went up to his room. A few minutes later, he came back, hands on his head, and said, "Did you see my book?" He sure did enhance his memory! —Danisa, 14
- Driving range
I agreed to go out on a date with a guy who lived in the same village as I did. We were about to get the car keys when his yaya scolded him and said he wasn't allowed to drive the car. In the car, he talked about going to Tagaytay. We never made it out of the village though. He panicked as we were driving out of the gate and the car started shaking uncontrollably. I stepped out and walked back home. —MM, 17
- Steak slip-up
I decided to take my guy to a family dinner. He showed up squeaky clean—sporting a new 'do and dressed to the nines! It was a formal affair, and he impressed me by knowing which utensils to use. I was smiling at him—when the slab of steak he was slicing flew off his plate! Worse, my dad was watching us the whole time. —Sam, 17

Hi! It's been so long since I planned to post my story in another platform aside from wattpad and now here I am, hoping that my story can be featured here.
My story is entitle "Who Are You," it's a tagalog-english teen fiction story so I hope, those filipinos who visit here can read my story!
WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
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!
