The struggle is real during the holidays, fam. Your titas, titos, and your relatives will be asking you the question, "Nasaan ang boyfriend/girlfriend/SO mo?" this season at least thrice during your holiday reunion (sometimes even via Zoom calls). You know they mean well, but it just gets tiring to keep getting asked this all the time and to try your best to give them a good reply. So, when they ask you where your boyfriend is again, here are the answers you can shoot back:
- "Secret. Hanapin mo."
Because they should also make an effort to find you a boyfriend.
- "Ewan ko. Hinahanap ko nga rin, e."
- "Bakit? May pinatago ka ba?"
Last time I checked, wala.
- "Ayun, may ibang girlfriend."
The truth hurts, but sometimes you just have to let it out.
- "Boyfriend? Nakakaganda ba 'yun?"
I'd rather be alone and free of heartaches, thank you very much.
- "Please ask me again next year."
Since I know you'll be asking me that again next year come the holidays.
- "Girl friends lang meron ako."
Yas$$$, and they're actually the best-est!
