A loved one you've been thinking about fondly for some time has finally come around -- at least, it seems that way. There are several roadblocks in their way, however, many of which won't move aside easily. The hard part will be your urge to clear their way without enlisting any help at all from them. The harder part will be the absolute necessity of your letting go so that they can make this happen alone -- which is what will really count.

The Bottom LineYou're so ahead of your time. Like a time traveler. Interesting, what you think of!
If you're at all worried that you might say or do something to offend someone, especially if you're pretty darned sure about who it is and what the situation might be, take someone along for the ride who's equipped to mediate in situations such as this. You know who to ask -- because you've probably had to call on them in the past for just such a reason. Remember, too, that it's not you they'll be watching out for. It's anyone who gets in your way or challenges your opinions.
1. Tell her she is beautiful, not hot.
2. Hold her hand at any moment even if it's just for a second.
3. Kiss her on the forehead.
4. Leave her voice messages to wake up to.
5. Always tell her how beautiful she is, no matter what she's wearing.
6. When she is upset, hold her tight and tell her how much she means to you.
7. Recognize the small things . . . THEY USUALLY MEAN THE MOST!
8. Call her baby.
9. Sing to her no matter how horrible your voice is.
10. Pick her over all the other girls you hang out with.
11. Write her notes, she loves them.
12. Introduce her to family and friends as your girlfriend.
13. Play with her hair.
14. Pick her up, tickle her and play-wrestle with her.
15. Sit in the park and just talk to her.
16. Tell her funny jokes, tell her stupid jokes, just tell her jokes.
17. Throw pebbles at her window in the middle of the night just because you missed her.
18. Let her fall asleep in your arms.
19. Carve your names into a tree.
20. If she's mad at you, apologize because SHE is always right.
22. Bring her flowers.
23. Treat her the same around your friends as you do when you're alone.
24. Look her in the eyes and smile.
25. Let her take as many pictures of you as she wants.
26. Slow dance with her, even if there isn't any music playing.
27. Kiss her in the rain.
28. If your in love with her . . . TELL HER.
December awaits me.

A good friend told me yesterday:
Grabe Jinky, ang galing mo talaga. Lahat ng tao naibubuhos sa iyo ang problema nila, tapos you never fail to make us feel better.
For some reason, it's easier to solve a problem when it's not yours. It's the subjective aspect, I guess, that makes it difficult for us to solve our own problems. Notice, that when you attempt to deal with your own problems, more often than not, you feel helpless & can't seem to find a solution or at least some relief.
However, it's another thing altogether if you MAKE your own problems, or make something your own problem when it shouldn't be in the first place. (Did that make sense?) Like another good friend told me early yesterday evening:
'Yun kasi mahirap sa atin. Feeling natin we're to be blamed for everything. Pinapasan natin lahat ng problema.
Ok, ok. Guilty as charged.
My Friendster Horoscope for today:
You're not cold and impersonal, and you're probably quite tired of reading that astrological description of your sign. The truth is, you're just picky, and there's certainly nothing wrong with that. Once you find someone who measures up to your standards -- that is, someone who's entertaining, independent and intelligent -- you can be quite devoted. Someone who answers just that description may be along shortly. If you're already attached, prepare for a brand new best friend.
I'd like to believe I've found this person. But the question is, was he looking for me, too?

A certain someone you spend an awful lot of time with is about to let you know that every minute you've invested has and will be well spent. You're set up to learn the depth and breadth of a loved one's feelings, and even if you're single, there's no way you'll miss the enormity of those same emotions coming to you via the casual utterances and behavior of someone you had no idea was as fond of you as they really are.
The Keys to Your Heart
You are attracted to those who have a split personality - cold as ice on the outside but hot as fire in the heart.
In love, you feel the most alive when your lover is creative and never lets you feel bored.
You'd like to your lover to think you are loyal and faithful... that you'll never change.
You would be forced to break up with someone who was insecure and in constant need of reassurance.
Your ideal relationship is lasting. You want a relationship that looks to the future... one you can grow with.
Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.
You think of marriage as something precious. You'll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.
In this moment, you think of love as commitment. Love only works when both people are totally devoted.

On a lighter note, there's so much that has happened for the past couple of months...
Early last April, I attended the COA Formation Seminar where I got to meet the representatives of the different student organizations. I wasn't supposed to be there but I don't regret ever going. I learned so much from my fellow leaders. I made new friends, had a lot of laughs, shared a lot of insights. I was so inspired with the passion & dedication of the other org representatives (majority were the presidents). One of the most wonderful things I was enlightened about was the diffrences of all the SOA orgs. After that experience, I gained a deep admiration for each & every SOA org's mission.

If anyone is ready for romance, it's you. And the universe agrees, too -- so much so that you've been chosen to receive one of those wonderful evenings that only come along a few times a year. Think of it as having Ed McMahon, Santa Claus and Donald Trump show up on your doorstep with cash, tickets for two to the event of your choice and a limo -- oh, and the person you'd love to share it all with.
