How Guys Talk to Their Barkada About Girls They *Really* Like

When was the last time you had a crush that your girl friends didn't know about? Hell, we even text our besties about random cuties who pass by. But is it different for guys? We asked real men about what it's like when there's a new girl in their life.

How do you know if you really like a girl?

Guy A: If I really like a girl, I don't waste time. I get her number and I text her right away.

Guy B: I know I like a girl when I'm willing to sacrifice my "me" time.

Guy C: I just feel it. A lot of people say that women are more emotional, but I really don't think so. I've always felt that women make more logical decisions when it comes to love. When I ask a woman why she likes someone, she usually has a list: "He's a good provider," "He has a stable job," or "He's super funny." For guys, we just like someone because we like her. It's not logic; it's an emotion.

Guy D: Sa totoo lang, kinikilig talaga ako kapag may crush ako. 'Di na maiiwasan.

How long do you wait before you tell your friends about her?

Guy A: Timing is everything. My friends and I don't have super serious conversations about the ladies we date. Our conversations revolve around games, current events, music, and even politics. I bring it up, but not in detail.

Guy B: Probably after the third date? But I bring up someone I like almost immediately.

Guy C: I usually don't tell my barkada. They'll know na lang when I bring her na to a gathering. Obviously, this is after I know that she's important to me. Then, I ask for validation from my friends.

Guy D: I'm very public with how I feel so my friends know right away when I'm interested in someone.

What do you say about a girl you really like vs. a girl you're not that serious about?

Guy A: To be frank, we respect the girl we love. If we talk about a girl na hindi naman sineseryoso, lalabas na lahat no'ng nasty stuff.

Guy B: It's an awful thing to say, but with girls I can't take seriously, I really don't care. I say whatever they want to hear, and I tell my friends every detail. But with a girl I want to keep in my life, it's different. I let myself feel vulnerable.

Guy C: I don't tell my bros about women I don't give a sh*t about.
