I’m currently watching Mischievous Kiss and I’m just about to finish it. it’s a combined version of Playful Kiss 1 and 2. :)
I’m done watching Sungkyunkwan Scandal and guess what? I clearly can’t get over these two guys…
Soong Jong Ki + Yoo Ah In = Heaven
Admit it guys. You have been wondering for years what its like to be a girl. I even heard guys say, “I wish I could be a girl for a while so that I’d be able to understand them” and “Hah! Girls! I just can’t understand them.” That kind of stuff. Haha! Poor creatures. But know what? We girls want to learn how to understand your actions as much as you want to understand ours.
There was a time when I walked past a car with a couple inside. They were arguing about something and their voices were pretty loud so I couldn’t help overhearing. Since my boyfriend wasn’t there to fetch me up yet, I decided to sit in a nearby bench. A few minutes passed and the arguing couple’s voices grew louder. I wanted to eavesdrop but my boyfriend’s face suddenly popped out from nowhere, reminding me not to put my nose in other people’s businesses. i wanted to ignore them but i just couldn’t.(Don’t blame me guys. I’m a girl and gossips are something that girls just can’t miss.)
Now to cut the seriously long story short, the arguing and now fighting couples (I saw the girl slap her boyfriend) got out of the car. The girl walked her way towards me. “Huwag mo akong susundan ha and don’t you dare call me!” The girl shouted at her boyfriend. I expected the guy to follow her and tell her he’s sorry. Wow! It was like a movie. I remained seated at the bench a few feet away from them, restraining myself from giggling. (Another point to ponder: When we girls get so gaga over a guy and whenever we are kinikilig, we just can’t help but giggle.)
The guy followed his girl. This is it! I whispered. I wanted to say. “Go buddy, you can do it! She’s your girl, c’mon you can win her heart”. As I was waiting for this big event to happen, my boyfriend arrived. he jumped out from his car, almost tripped while walking towards my direction and kissed me in the cheek with his usual I’m-sorry-I-was-late-becau se… dialogue. i didn’t have the time to tell him my hour long sermon about being late. I was so absorbed about what’s happening between the arguing couples. So instead, I motioned him to look at them.
My boyfriend and I were silent for a moment. (I wouldn’t want to be caught looking at them. It would be an embarrassment I’ll carry for the rest of my life.) The girl walked past us. (Boy, was I glad she didn’t see us.) Her boyfriend followed her. He grabbed her left hand. “What?” The girl almost yelled as she turned to her boyfriend.
I felt my heart beat faster. “C’mon let’s go. let’s leave them here. It’s their business.” My boyfriend interrupted me.
“Stop it, will you? This will only take a while. it’s a real life drama. this is one in a million!” I snapped back. I was glad that my boyfriend was there to see this. (Other than enjoying watching what was happening, my other intention of staying was to let my boyfriend have an idea on what to do, in case we encounter the same situation.)
“What? Diba sabi ko huwag mo na ‘kong susundan?” The girl yelled. She snatched her hand from her boyfriend and began walking away from him.
The boy stood still. He muttered something under his breath, turned his back and walked towards the opposite direction. he stepped inside his car and left. Upon hearing the car’s engine, the girl turned her head back. Her already puffy red eyes began to be flooded by tears again as she watched her boyfriend’s car disappear in the darkness.
Does the situation sound familiar? Oh, silly me. Of course it does! A recent poll shows that it happens to six in every ten couples almost everyday. (Don’t ask me where and when the poll was conducted.)
See? Boys are so naive!
Why do you always have to do whatever we say? Sometimes, what we mean is just the opposite. Can’t you get it? When we tell you to leave us alone, what we really want you to do is to stay beside us. We don’t want you to go away. When we tell you to stop calling us, we don’t really mean it. Don’t ask me why, it’s just natural. it’s a girl thing alright? Just go with the flow.
If your reaction about what you’ve read is “Ahh…”, then I think you better continue reading the following.
Months ago when my guy and I celebrated our so called “Month-sary” we decided to go out on a date. my guy called me to say he’ll pick me up at around eight in the evening. That night as I was getting ready, my boyfriend arrived ten minutes earlier. my mom knocked on my bedroom door and told me he has already arrived. I popped my head out of my room and told him in my sweetest voice that I’ll be ready in five minutes.
When i finally got dressed, we immediately went to his car. During the 30-minute ride to this fine dining restaurant, he never said a word to me. Something tells me I did something wrong. But what did I do?
Once we were seated at the restaurant, he told me at last the reason behind his silence. The reason? It’s because he waited for me for thirty minutes, twenty five minutes more than what I’ve told him.
If we tell you that we’ll be back in five minutes, it doesn’t literally mean that we’ll really be back in five minutes. especially when were getting ready for a date, don’t expect us to be done within that short span of time. For us, the phrase, “five minutes” is just a kind of expression. It usually means two things. What five minutes really mean to us is… (Guys hold on to your seats because this may come to you as a big shock)… first, “Just sit back and I’ll be there when I’m ready”, and second when we say we’ll be there in five minutes, we actually mean, “Just wait for about thirty minutes more.”
Two weeks ago, my friend and I were eating our favorite chocolate mousse when my friend Dimple received a call from Cherry. After their conversation (It lasted for about half an hour, but it’s okay. It’s a girls stuff and we automatically understand it), Dimple filled us with details about their conversation.
She said that Cherry and her boyfriend (sorry but names can’t be revealed due to the great embarrassment it may cause to the guy) were out on a movie date. Dee (I decided to change the name after all), Cherry’s boyfriend, had already brought their tickets and drinks when he received a text message from Cruella (I changed the name to fit her personality). According to the message, Cruella was having a hard time because she and her boyfriend had an argument about something.
Dee, as the ever supportive best friend of Cruella, explained to Cherry that he has to cancel their date because Cruella needs comfort right now. Cherry tore their movie tickets in front of Dee, told him to go ahead, and after that, she turned her back and started to walk away when Dee took hold of her arm. “Baby, I’ll drive you back home.”
Cherry almost couldn’t speak but she still managed to say, “It’s okay. I’m fine.”
Dee looked at her. “Is there something wrong?”
“Of course something’s wrong!” Cherry snapped back. “Cruella is your ex-girlfriend turned best friend! How should I feel? I’m giving you ten minutes to choose. is it me or that girl?”
“I can’t choose between the two of you! She’s my best friend. You’re my girl.” Dee tried to hug her but Cherry already turned her back away from him.
You know guys, the situation stated above is one of the hundreds of reasons of breaking up. Boys, please… always remember that we don’t mind that your best friend is a girl. But sometimes you know the limitations. Especially if your best friend was once your girlfriend. i hope you get what I mean.
You may not notice this but sometimes, we feel that there is a competition going on. Although not all girls may feel it but most of us do.
Just recently, my boyfriend and his friends planned for a get together party. This means tons of beer to go. He asked me if we could cancel our visit to a museum to make way for their so-called “get together” party. (How could it be a get-together party? They’re neighbors for goodness sake!)
I looked away and said, “Go ahead.”
He hugged me tight and saif, “Great! I’ll call you when I get home. Love you!”
This is a tip for you guys. When we say “go ahead”, we don’t really mean it. It’s dare, not a permission. DON’T DO IT!
The things that you learned from this article are just a few of the millions of things that you need to know in order to decode the girl’s attitude… our attitude.
Sometimes, you don’t need a psychologist, a magazine or even this article to understand us. All you have to do is is to read between our lines and voila! Our actions are decoded.
Note From the Author:
I wrote this entry for our school paper last June 2008. It appeared on the July-November 2008 issue of The Review. While I was reading this article, I couldn’t help but laugh at how immature I was when I wrote this. The part about the “Five Minutes” was definitely me a few years back. Now, you wouldn’t expect me to be late for a dinner date anymore. :) And for the record my boyfriend at that time and I already split up but remain good friends until now. :)
