I’m the type of person who is warm, open, touchy-feely, and very friendly. Within minutes I can transform from being a total stranger to your new BFF. But I don’t have many friends. I have been burned so many times that I am very very careful who I let in my life. And still, I get hits & misses now & then.
When a bloggers group invited Kap & I to join them, I was really quite apprehensive. So many people to consider & accept as friends. I mean, hey if you’re thrown together in a group, how can you not be, right? You HAVE to like each other -or at least learn to tolerate each other.
I was scared. But in time, I began to see the beauty in each one. The strengths as well as the weaknesses. But together, like music, we make it work.
Even before, I would draw closer to male friends. I guess it’s because there is less drama with guys. Ladies are more sensitive than men. So, being one of the boys, I don’t have to light-foot my way around & over-analyze if what I said or did would be taken as an offense.
In the group, I am closest to 3 men. Maybe because I am always with them, or out together with them in most blogging events. But we click. I get them, they get me. I love them, and well.. they bully me! :P
Meet the men in my life other than Kap & my Babyson..
Richard is very straightforward. He does’t sugarcoat things. He always speaks his mind, and the truth even though the truth may hurt -a bit, or quite a lot. Depende sa levelz :P Wala syang lambing sa katawan, not even an ounce. Which is why he is sometimes considered brash.. and harsh. But when he is your friend, he is your friend in the truest sense. He is loyal & protective. He will give you advice, teach & guide you from your erring ways. On my blog alone, he has taught me so many things that has helped me & improve my blog considerably. I can always run to him for ANYTHING, and he will set me straight. Maiyak man ako o hindi, he will always give me the soundest advice.
To the people who don’t know him, to the outside world, Richard is very impersonal. He doesn’t share tidbits of himself. Even in his posts you will notice he sticks to the subject. Ni picture nga nya wala -which is why all the photos (with captions) here are from me.
To date, this guest post may be his most personal yet & I am honored to share with you HIS THOUGHTS.. ON ME! ;))
