Last Wednesday, I fell in love with some guy I just met.
Don't get me wrong, though. It wasn't love at first sight. It took at least two hours for me to realize that this boy was definitely a catch. By the end of the day, I was hooked.
He was really nice. He was really cute. He was a really good singer.
Well, there are two, actually.
First, he was already in a relationship. Four years na sila ng BF niya.
Second, di niya ako type. Pero he was still uber-nice to me. As in. We were together almost all of Friday night, during the company party.
Another thing: taga-Baguio siya. So, temporary lang ang stay niya here. He was just accompanying his cousin who was a contestant in the company singing contest.
It was amazing how easily we got close to each other. We got to talk about a lot of things. About his boyfriend and stuff.
As soon as the concert was over, the contestants and I headed to the hotel to finish the night off with bottles of tequila and videoke-singing.
Parteeboi and his comically cute boyfriend joined us in the hotel room.
Amidst the singing drunken people in the room, Baguio Boy and I got to talking about our love problems. I confessed to him that I once had feelings for Parteeboi but that I was now totally over him.
"So, hindi ka nasasaktan makita na masaya siya with his boyfriend?" Baguio Boy asked me.
I shook my head, "Not in the least. I'm actually very happy for him. Ngayon ko lang siya nakita ng ganyan kasaya."
Baguio Boy nodded. Then he said, "In fairness, ang cute ng boyfriend niya."
I gulped, "Type mo?"
He just smiled and nodded.
Haaay. You know what? Medyo na-depress talaga ako noon.
I couldn't help but wish that I were as good-looking as most of my friends.
Madalas nga, iniisip ko na mag-iipon ako ng pera para pa-ayos ko ang nose ko. Feeling ko kasi, kapag maganda na ang ilong ko (hindi yung naka-upo, as Amorsolo loves to describe my nose), may itsura na siguro ako.
Sabi ni Parteeboi there's someone out there for me daw.
Just once, I would want to hear that someone finds me attractive, and sound sincere saying it.
I'm not trying to fish for compliments here, people. Nor am I in a pity-party.
Let's just say I really liked Baguio Boy. And I wish that he liked me that way, too.
He left for Baguio this morning. Miss ko na siya.
