the first time he said he loves me

When we were still dating, I got almost all of my "I love you's" from him through text messages. Yes, he's not really the vocally expressive type. I asked him why and his explanation was that it's a little awkward for him when he would say that in person because even in their own home and even when members of their family are all close to one another, they wouldn't say I Love You personally to each other. Then I told him that it's time that he express himself well vocally without feeling awkward about it. I don't remember exactly when it was. It started with me saying this to him first where I would get the "I Love You, Too" back and then gradually he would just surprise me with those words without me having to say (or suggest?) it first.

Oh, I hope you didn't think I was the one who gave him a hint that I was interested in him. No, not at all. It's just that he had his own way of courting a girl. In fact, I remember the first time he had talked to me about his intentions, he tried to tell me in a shy kind of way why he likes me (which seemed justifiable, ahem!) and wants to be my boyfriend. Ironically, even with the shy approach, he had made sure I understood that he wants a serious relationship that would eventually lead to marriage if our personalities get along and that we should not waste each other's time if I had no thoughts of a serious relationship, or making it work, or getting married one day. Like most of the entries I've read so far, he's had a serious relationship before me but unfortunately (and thankfully, LOL), it didn't work for the both of them. :-)

our first kilig/sweet moments

The love month is here. Hello February! You're reading an entry for Couples Corner and I am supposed to talk about our first kilig/sweet, exciting moments.Love, love, love! Hmmm, a trip down memory lane is indeed a good way to prevent Alzheimer's, isn't it?

Care to know our first "kilig", sweet and exciting moments within our getting to know you better stage?

I recalled those times when a common officemate friend would tell me he's been asking for more information and facts about me, including my mobile phone number! My inexperienced heart went chug! chug! when I learned all about it. Thoughts and questions were already running in my head. Is he really interested? Does he really like me? Or does he just want me to become his textmate? I think he is interested. Oh, I know I needed to be careful in dealing with men.  He started sending me friendly messages through YM which he never did before and I would secretly reply back so as not to cause a stir. LOL. For me, I found it exciting that we tried to get to know each other better without letting everyone else know 'cept for two common friends.

So, when we officially became bf-gf, he sort of just surprised everyone (including me) when he gave me flowers in the office so we wouldn't have to hide anything from them anymore. It's like a statement from him that we're officially lovers. No, it's not a KC and Piolo love story and I'm definitely not insinuating that it is! :-)

Couple's Corner: What Will I Get For Christmas?

The last time he gave me something for Christmas, it was a pair of shoes (Hush Puppies). This Christmas, I am not going to expect to get anything from him because I am already aware of what our money can or cannot buy. Anyway, it goes for him as well. Everytime I would attempt to buy him a new shirt as my gift for Christmas, he would warn me not to because we have to make ends meet first. Yes, he's not the type who would agree to buy gifts from credit card. Obviously, between the two of us, he's the more frugal and practical type.

Talking About The New Normal

What's the new normal these days? This got me thinking today, and I thought I should make a list. 1. Wearing Masks. Obviously, it'...
