 1  The Flirt-Next-Door

Guy GIFvia  

He who is too nice, too charming and too good to be true is also known as the easiest mistake you will ever make. We tend to get so wrapped up in the idea of the perfect guy, we tend to miss the big picture. He will make you feel special, sometimes even too special. This is when you start to get a sense that all these sweet words sound too practiced, like they've already came out of his mouth way too many times before. And after weeks or months of non-stop texting and flirting, you'll be caught off guard by the dozens of other girls who've been charmed by the exact same words as you have.

 2  Mr. Full-of-It

Nicki Minaj laid down a really important nugget of wisdom with how if a person has it, he won't feel the need to go around talking about it 24/7. You don't want to spend half of your potential relationship hearing about his god-like athleticism or how he thinks he's the next Zuckerberg.

 3  A Troll in Shining Armor

Ever heard of the phrase "wolf in sheep's clothing"? Well, I guess not every set of armor has some loyal and brave knight behind it. There are some guys you will meet once or twice in this lifetime that will find a way to earn your trust just to get what they want. They will lull you into this false sense of security just to break your heart into a million pieces right after. Just when you think things are going in a certain direction, he bails and suddenly nowhere to be found. Don't be fooled by the seemingly perfect jawline. If there's one thing you can’t take away from people, it's their ability to surprise you.

 4  The Immature One

I don’t know about you guys but if there's one thing I can’t just look over, it's immaturity. Sure, we all have our moments of weakness where we give in to a Spongebob marathon or somehow sneak in a laugh or two when someone burps. But by this, I mean someone who refuses to acknowledge the fact that we are entering the prime stages of adulthood—someone who is afraid of the words "responsibility" and "future." It's hard to grow in a relationship with someone who refuses to do so.

 5  The One Who Seems to be Allergic to Labels

When you've spent a fair amount of time in this would-be could-be relationship, you start to wonder why doesn't he just lock it down? And when you try to DTR, all of a sudden, he has a million excuses. He'll go for the friendship-is-too-important card or goes on and on about how he doesn't believe in labels. Don't kid yourself into thinking those first hundred excuses were actually real.

A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender

Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.

Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.

It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.

Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
