Because I’ve been feeling uninspired. A sort of narcissistic post. Think of it as some kind of intermission from all the great articles from the great writers here. It pales in comparison but indulge please. Yes?
I haven’t posted much about my favorite topic which is…men. Come on I’m single female and I happen to like the opposite sex. The lack of being with one is adding to the already uninspired state of mind.
The last time I posted something here about my preference for men, it got me all riled up in an amusing sort of way. Well, I’d like to say it hasn’t change and I prefer foreigners more than locals. But that’s just me… and a few others, I would assume. Just to validate feelings and choice, there is nothing wrong with that, right?
I can’t seem to find that connection to the kind of man I would like to be with. Since my last relationship ended seven years ago, I am still single brown female. Panic button is on. Can you tell? The quest for that elusive one is still elusive. Oh my gosh, what happened to the men? Maybe I’m too picky. I just wanted someone who speaks their mind. Not too crass not too crude, just the right amount of intellect to comprehend and share some things to me. Is that even hard? I always have a lot of opinion on just about anything under the sun. Foreigners tend to talk a bit more than Filipino men. I like that. I like to exchange ideas and talk about anything even if it’s as mundane as talking about the best flavor of ice cream.
Also foreigners probably don’t care (or do they?) about appearance. I’m not ugly and heavy but I’m not stick super model either. What an ordinary Filipino looks like is what I am. I’m artless.
My last relationship was with an American. But as luck would have it things did not work out and I’m glad it turned out that way. Our personalities clashed and problems back home for him pave the way for the relationship to end. I was relieved because I’m not sure that love really existed. Oh sure, it’s there but on a different level and not in that deeper sense. You know what I mean. But even if that was the case, I still prefer to be in relationship with foreigner. Many reasons but major would be I can talk or discuss things without feeling the need to elaborate. They get what I mean.
I don’t have standard and I’m not picky (well, maybe I am just slight, intellect and same religion is important) but where are thou men?!
We all know that it’s mostly men seeking and not the other way around. Some come here for that specific purpose while other would try their luck going to match making sites or chat rooms. You know typical how I met my wife/ girlfriend move. Mostly though the men looking are looking for the type of Filipina that would complete their life and existence (corny meter up, sorry folks), that would love them (even without cash register dollars). I’d say success rate is good. Cheers to the men who found their eternal bliss of love.
And so what about if it’s women seeking? I suppose culture dictates that it’s men who seek and not the women. I don’t know. What do you think?
I once tried (online match site) not to seek though but just so to abate curiosity. I don’t shun them but as mentioned, I am kind of slightly somewhat picky. Oh all right maybe I’m much too picky. No disrespect to the men or women and those who are into finding love match on date sites, but seeing their profiles, it’s a no, thanks for me.
Filipino men are okay. I prefer foreigner. I’m not in relationship right now but would like to. Oh wow it’s like I’m wearing huge signboard that says anybody out there? I’m so shy aren’t I? Ha ha.
Anyone? Hah! I’m kidding! And now intermission is over. I’ll self destruct in embarrassment!
