3. the guy I’m dating for the past five months*
There. I believe I need to give you a definition or a brief introduction of who this guy is – since he has been a consistent entry on my previous blogs.
Mark and I had been dating for the past five months. Mark’s type has always been the kind of guy that I see myself ending up with. I like guys who are very quiet, wont speak unless spoken to, reserved, and hard to predict.
The first three months was the hardest for us I guess. Surprising because I had always thought that it was the fun part. It might be, but it was during these times I guess that we were forced to adjust with each other’s personality.
Mark – the reserved guy
Mark never wanted attention. He has a little world of his own. It was hard for me to understand at first. Him not wanting to change his relationship status in facebook had been an issue for sometime.
He was private about everything. Our pictures, our relationship, and about me. That was hard to understand. As a girl, you wanted to feel that your partner shows you off, right?
It was hard, because I was showy – and he was shy. Little by little, he changed. He adjusted, I guess. That made me happy. Crazy how a simple facebook post can make my heart skip a beat.
I don’t like giving flowers excuse.
I love flowers. I love receiving them. It makes me feel like a lady. Mark on the other hand, hates giving them I guess. When we were just starting, I was begging him to give me flowers so badly. He always tell me that he’s not that type of guy excuse.
We failed to celebrate our first month of being together. Since before I met him, I already booked a flight to Hong Kong. So I was there, and he was here. When I arrived from my four days vacation, he visited me at home and gave me a bouquet of roses. Dream come true for me.
Miss Splurge meets Mister Practical
Aside from being my boyfriend, Mark is also my financial adviser. I just hired him a few weeks ago – and he is now teaching me how to save. Yes my dearest friends, I am in the process of learning now. So good luck Mark. So far, you’re doing a great job. Good mentor!
He does not like Cartoons!
Mark and I are both movie fanatics – but while I am a go gaga over cartoons and those kiddie flicks, Mark does not like them. I failed to watched Tangled because of him. And when I asked him to watched Rango with me, his only comment was “Cartoons kasi yun e.” He is the only guy that I know who does not buy my paawa look with matching pout lips. (Note to Mark: In time my dear, I know it will somehow work on you.)
He does not like Sweets!
He does not like one of the things that I can not survive a day without. Sweets would probably be an essential. A must have for me – everyday. Mark on the other hand, does not have a sweet tooth. Talk about compatibility. So most of the time, he just ends up watching me eat these sweet pleasures – and the good thing about him is, he does not complain. I remember when we were in HK for a vacation, we have to stop by a convenience store just to buy chocolates after our breakfast at Burger King because of my ridiculous craving. He was patient enough to understand. 🙂
Ms. Congeniality and The Shy Type
I was never from a blocked section when I was in college and I was a teller for the first two years of my professional life, so I think that explains why I smile a lot – even on strangers. Mark finds it weird – every time. Whenever I wave my hands to say hi to guards, or smile on a total stranger, he would always ask me why I do what I do. My friends from Citi are like that also, so I’d like to believe I’m still normal.
Even though Mark and I are totally different from each other – I see it now as one of our relationship’s strength. To be honest, I cant imagine dating a guy like me. That would be a little peculiar. Despite the differences, I believe that Mark is the perfect guy for me. I can not see myself dating anyone else now. Despite my complaints at times, and him not believing that I’d forever be faithful, he would still be the best guy there is, the best guy there was, and the best guy there’ll ever be – well, for me at least.
Quote for the day:
Compatibility is not having a lot of things in common and thinking alike. We are created uniquely with our own strengths, flaws, and character. Rather, being compatible means being able to work things out and think together despite our differences.
