When God writes your Lovestory (my version)

After I changed my status in Friendster into in a relationship, many friends and previous officemates began contacting me, asking me who's my bf, how did we meet, our love story, etc, blah blah blah. Dami yata nagulat may bf na ako.. don't worry pati rin ako nagulat eh hahaha :p So I've decided to blog about it all para send ko na lang link na 'to sa magtatanong pa. But this is just a summary (warning, mushy to, hehe), I'd rather keep some details private :)

Ria seemed to have this self-imposed obligation to help me fill my loveless lovelife. Two months ago we had this chat:
Oi, may ire-reto ako sa yo, hehehe.
Sino na naman yan?

Si Harley, matagal na sa Kuwait, friend ni Dan, NEC manila din dati. Promise okay to sya, mabait. Ayoko ko sana ireto sa yo kasi sobrang mabait daw.
Huh? Ayoko pala ng sobrang mabait?
Hahaha baka kasi ma bored ka sa kanya :p

Honestly, I wasn't "searching", because I was happy being single and available. Going into another relationship wasn't my priority. I thought di pa naman ako gurang, medyo marketable pa naman ako (hahahaha!) so there's no pressure. Sometimes I even went out to friendly dates para makalibre ng coffee, hehehehe :p Besides I just gained my "freedom", I was bent on enjoying it to the fullest, do things I had long ago wanted to do and I was focusing more on improving myself. And also, since Harley was from NEC (though NEC-Manila) I didn't expect this to take off and progress "romantically". I thought, naku from NEC na naman! I have nothing against NEC guys pero heller naman, kung both naging bf mo from NEC, wouldn't you want to try another flavor? Understandably, gusto ko naman ng iba, baka kasi malas lang ako with NEC guys. But since he's mabait (correction, sobrang mabait pala... hehehe) I conceeded, at least I would gain another friend.

Our first chat surprised me because I was pre-framed that he's boring, oh my gas, di pala! Aba sumasakay sya sa mga hirit ko! Especially when he told me he had a crush on me when he saw me in Cebu when they had their training, plus 100 pogi points na sya agad! Hahahaha oo nabola ako :P After that, we started chatting a lot and exhanged text messages literally from sunup to kadlawon (madaling-araw). We talked about everything under the sun from serious topics like our past relationships and our dreams, to mundane topics and walang-kwenta na bagay. Makulit sya, makulit din ako, kaya ayun magastos sa load, hahaha. I began looking forward to his messages (I made sure may load ako always para makareply, o diba.. hehe) and I felt giddy everytime he called me. I realized then I felt "something" for him. But I brushed it aside, shunned the kilig since I would want to meet him in person first and verify if I would still feel the same way (to verify din na di sya multo, hehe).

Two weeks ago he was here for a vacation. We planned to meet. I was really nervous as I waited for him at Greenbelt. (Oo kainis, pinahintay ako, grr! Nakalimutan yata nya na Pinas to, hello traffic from QC to Makati...) And my nervousness augmented with each passing minute that it was a miracle inabutan nya ako still standing na poised pa rin, as if everything's normal. I can't remember the first thing I said to him , because everything was a blur... I just felt so happy I finally met him and I had this crazy urge
to hug him kasi gwapo pala sya in person, hahahaha :D After a few minutes, the awkwardness went away and we were conversing/nagkukulitan like we used to in phone and chats. We had a lovely dinner at Hue, coffee at Coffee Bean, midnight snacks at Chowking, ice cream at 7-11 then breakfast meals at Jollibee... haha oo, inumaga na kami, kwentuhan lang, kulitan... exactly my idea of a perfect date (see, low-maintenance lang talaga ako, basta may food, solve na :p). Two days after, under the starlit sky of Makati, he popped the question. Ayun sinagot ko na agad, di man lang umabot ng one hour, baka kasi magbago ang isip hahahaha (tsk! di ko man lang pinahirapan... ). It's because I finally felt that elusive spark, that magical feeling of finally finding your match... how could I say no? The following days were filled with wonderful discoveries about him, with each discovery leaving me falling deeper in love with him. And believe me, he's not boring... not at all! *wink*

I was already happy before he came, he just made me happier. I never thought I can be this happy. Being with him, I am carefree, no pretenses, I am not restricted... I am me. It was all a perfect timing. Just when I wasn't searching, when I'm already healed by past disappointments and heartbreaks, God caught me by surprise and gave me Harley. I think He waited for me to become a better person (oo pramis, better ako ngayon, haha) because Harley deserves a better me. Yes, he's back in Kuwait now. But even though I miss him so badly, I am comforted by the thought that somewhere out there, under the same stars (naks!) he's loving me as much. This temporary separation is just a small sacrifice compared to the promise of spending better tomorrows with him. "Don't settle", my friends told me that perhaps a dozen of times before and shocks yeah, I'm really glad I followed that advice. Destiny? ... hmmm perhaps :) But one thing is sure, God loves me so much that He has given me someone way better than I hoped and prayed for.
