7 Sensible Reasons Why I Am to Remain Single

The search for happiness is one of the chief sources of unhappiness. – Eric Hoffer

Is there a posting trend nowadays regarding love and relationships? Nadadalas ata ang pagbabasa ko sa mga blog ng parekoy tungkol sa paghahanap ng kapareha, hinde man tungkol sa pag-aasawa babaling dyan ang mga sulatin ukol sa ka-emohan pagdating sa pagkakaroon slash hindi pagkakaroon slash pagkakawala ng gelpren (achuchuchu!).

After going over my list of bitter remarks regarding online dating (disasters!) that resulted from my abrupt and unwarranted craving for emotional reciprocation just months ago, I’m going to counter the ‘all-things-mushy’ feeling I’ve established from my previous post Torpe No More on showing how stylish a design stud can be in making his sweet affection known. While it is true that I’ve become a bitter better, bolder and braver guy after having my heart broken thrice and still not having a girlfriend for the record (sige na ipa-raffle nyo na ko!), and while most of the commentaries I’ve gained from my last post expressed a lot of high hopes regarding Ms. Sketchpad, I’ve come up with seven sensible reasons why I must remain single:

  • Divided attention in work and studies. Hindi ka mapakali. Laging sya ang nasa isip mo. Hindi ka makapag-concentrate ng buo sa lessons. Apektado ang neurons at creative juice production lalo na kung malakas ang tama sa kanya.
  • No Money, No Honey: Chaka naman kung magde-date or lalabas kayu tapos magda-Dutch treat kayo ng bonggang-bongga. Nariyan ang araw-araw na paglo-load in case kamustahin mo sya or yung maya’t-mayang pagpunta sa kanila or pagsundo sa kanya. Isama po dyan yung porma. At kung uso pa ang chocolates and flowers, dapat may sariling income ka. Kanino ka hihingi ng panggastos? Sa www.cod.com? As in Cash Of Daddy and Cash Of Mommy? Eeeewww...
  • Time Investments: Hindi lang nga sa kanya umiikot ang mundo mo, pero hinde maikakaila na nangangailangan rin ng marami-rami oras ang dapat gugulin nio sa isa’t-isa, that is, if you really want things to work out properly. Kelangan ng walang patid na communication which again translates to sky-rocketing expenses on constant dates and phone bills.
  • It sucks feeling broken-hearted: Being in a relationship is not a bed of roses. While you are all happy and sunshine drinking in all that sweet nectar of mushiness, you might get drowned when it starts to drizzle. Mas malala pa ang epekto nito sa creative juice production dahil andami-dami ring tanong ang gumugulo sa isipan: Sure ba ako na may gusto pa rin sya sa’kin? Anu na namang ginawa kong mali? Gusto ko syang maka-usap... haist. Before you know it eh parang kinahig na ng manok ang mga drawings mo na ang due submission ay kinabukasan.
  • I’m a Romanticist at Heart: It runs in the line of modern Filipino thinking how the universe will conspire to make you and your partner meet in a fateful moment at a destined time and place no matter what. Baduy na kung baduy. Isa ako sa mga naniniwalang mokong dun.
  • I’m turning Fifth Year next sem: Super senior year means dealing with my thesis and working all my neurons full blast. I just can’t risk dealing with all those drama effin’ up the pinnacle and final bout of my year as a student. No effin’ way. No way.
  • I have an Abnormality: I’ll leave this one hanging for my beloved readers to speculate. Ahaha. Hulaan niyo kung ano. Basta abnormal ako. Tuldok. Bwahahaha!


I guess the story behind me and Ms. Sketchpad has to wait muna. Ahaha. Kinontra ko talaga yung last post ko. Pasensya na po sa inyong lahat :)

  6. maging single ka muna habang ika'y nagaaral, may panahon pa naman para dyan. at kahit abnormal ka, di nangangahulugan na wala kang karapatang magmahal :)

  8. kung mahahandle mo naman ng sabay good. then kung hindi naman, okay lang. tama nga naman, madami pa namang pagkakataon para dyan. kung sa tingin mo na makakatulong yan or hindi sa buhay mo (lalo na this time) ay ikaw nag makakapagdesisyon nyan.

    abnormal? teka di ko alam yan. need ko atang magback read ah.

    goodluck tol.

  9. Here's a thought: the moment you realize you don't need to be with someone to feel complete/ blessed/ loved/ needed, that's when you're actually ready to have a relationship. Because you have fully accepted singlehood. Did you know that the French have no concept of dating or courtship? The most romantic people believe we live our lives moving, changing and evolving. Sometimes you meet someone, they stay for a while and you have a great time, but when they leave, you too leave. For a new experience.

    Besides, thesis at UP Archi is so effing hard. The faculty cannot drive its students any more deeper into their graves. Expect long nights at Building Uno, and longer days in catatonic disarray.

    Good luck!
