let me share with you a conversation (SMS) i have had with a friend... perhaps you could help me help her...
friend: sorry if i have not been able to text you for a very long time. it's just that i have been very busy with lots of things...
me: it's okay. it's been a while though. wazzup?
friend: the truth is, i am not THAT fine. i've been feeling so depressed lately and earlier, i thought i needed someone to talk to. i believe you're the best person i could share my problem to. i know you'd listen without judging me (i hope)
me: wow! what a way to say hello... just kidding... okay, so what's bugging you?
friend: there's this guy i believe i have fallen in love with but i am not sure if he really feels the same way as i do.
me: hhhmmm...do i know who this "guy" is?
friend: i don't think you know him. i met him through a common friend and that's how it all started. you know, hi--hello, we exchanged numbers, the usual.
me: ok, tell me the whole story
friend: after the first time we met, we did not really see each other again. but we texted each other. we would often send emails to each other. at times, we would even chat online. after a while, he began telling me that he loved me. then, he started courting me.
me: and then...
friend: then i can't exactly remember what i said pero i know kami na. then, he invited me out for dinner. so we met and went out for dinner. we did not talk that much. parang bigla kaming nagkahiyaan but i don't know why. pero ganon yung feeling. it was not the first date. whenever he comes to manila, we meet and go out.
me: ooopps!! i hope you just WENT OUT. nothing more than that. otherwise, i think i already know what your problem is.
friend: no! it's not what you think it is. okay,so we became exclusive... or so i thought.
me: uh-oh! third party? he's married?
friend: yeah, third party and MORE. no, he's not married
me: PATAY! okay, tell me about it
friend: i have this picture of us posted on my corkboard in my workstation. one time, the cousin of a friend visited her in the office. she brought us lunch and i offered that we eat in my workstation. while we were having lunch, she suddenly stood and moved closer to where my corkboard was and suddenly she exclaimed " kilala mo si kuya gio?".
me: ooopps... what happened next?
friend: she said "oo, boyfriend siya ng classmate ko! and before i could even answer, my friend said "baka kamukha lang" and the cousin said, "siya yan no, boyfriend siya ni may. sugar pa nga tawagan nila no! i knew then that i was blushing. i instantly had the urge to call him to ask him about it but something stopped me from doing so.
me: what happened next?
friend: that was the first instance that i knew about a third party. the second was when we went out for dinner. while having dinner, he excused himself and went to the comfort room. after a few seconds, his CP rang, it was inside his jacket's pocket. i reached for the phone and guess who was calling?
me: hmmm... you? hehehe! just kidding.
friend: the name flashing was HONEY KO. in short, may SUGAR na siya, may HONEY pa siya. to cut the long story short, i then knew that i was not the ONLY ONE. i asked him if he was serious with me and if i was the only one he was dating. and he said, oo naman. he even told me that he wouldn't go as far as manila to see me if he wasn't serious.
me: did you tell him that you knew about HONEY and SUGAR?
friend: nope! i did not know how.
me: ok, so what happened next?
friend: after that dinner, hindi na siya masyadong nagpapakita, bihira na rin tumawag. pero nagtetext siya. according to him, busy daw siya. what should i do?
me: i think that deep in your heart, you already know what to do. talk to him about your relationship and talk to him about HONEY and SUGAR. although i know he would deny them. but you know what? i believe that you know what to do.
