Old Fashioned

Couldn’t help smiling warmly when I saw a friend of mine posted this on her timeline.

As modern and open as I am, I am actually very old fashioned when it comes to love. I prefer the man to make the first move, pull out chairs and so forth. Not that I am not independent but it’s a really touching gesture. It makes me feel safe and that they are able to protect and care for me.

Sappy much? I still do love writing letters, receiving snail mail gives me joy too. Nowadays, it’s just SMSs or emails. People no longer take the time to write their thoughts down.

Can’t expect everyone to have the same exact sentiments like I do now ain’t it?

Here’s the link to the above mentioned post :

Intuition

I’ve come across many personal life experience where my intuition was right. Maybe they were a gentle warning to me. Some was a good sign and some was a bad sign.

2003, a particular name was always mentioned in the conversations between my ex and I. True enough, they dated behind my back.

I remember this particular one in July 2011, I was at the happiest peak of my life. It was definitely my best and worst year. I was truly content with everything I had, it was everything and more that I could have wished for.
In that month, I noticed some odd texting between this guy I was dating and someone. I kept mum despite noticing how inappropriate the time that the SMSs were received. I felt uneasy but I’m a firm believer of trust. I thought to myself if there was something, he would tell me.

A month down the road, we had the talk. He isn’t ready and doesn’t want anything serious. Was I right to assume the coincidence? I didn’t simply because I respect the person and the future situation.

But then months down the road, there was B&W prove of how chummy things got. Perhaps it did happen behind my back when I noticed the oddness. I should have trusted my instincts.

Sometimes the better side of me tells myself, always give the benefit of the doubt to the other person. Or maybe I think highly of someone I care and respect, that I give all my trust to them.

I’ve iced up again because I’m too scared and this applies to all aspects of my life; work, family, friends and heart.
