My entry for Couple’s Corner is quite late this week because we’re in Bangkok for three days. When we got home last Saturday, we had birthday celebration for our baby’s first birthday and my father’s 51st birthday. My hands are full the past week and the coming weeks..he..he..Thanks for the visit and I’ll soon visit you back.
It was on our last year on college that he started making his first move.. He didn’t graduate yet coz he shifted course from BS Fishery to BS Education and he has few major subjects to take up with us. We’re busy making lesson plans in our classroom one time and I overheard him confessing to a classmate that I’m his first crush when he first entered the school. It’s quite a revelation to me..ha..ha..and it makes my heart “bloat” LOL! ..and told myself “gotcha”…LOL! All those years I kept wondering on why he’s aloof with me and I later knew that he kept his distance coz his friend (the assistant-editor guy that I told you) was courting me before and also he sense that I’m kinda aloof to guyz. He was studying the techniques first on how to make the first base. As an eldest to 14 children, who can still allot time for puppy love…LOL! I’m all out for my studies and household chores (imagine loads of laundry).
He started to befriends my friend and start talking to me…ha..ha…He asked my whereabouts on weekends and told me that he’ll come and visit me. I’m quite tense because it would be the first time to entertain a suitor in my house with my consent..he..he…I thought he would back out on his first time of courting coz we don’t have privacy with my siblings all around…ha..ha..and my parents weren’t at home at that time so we haven’t talked that much. He thought that I’m not really interested in him coz I’m wearing my worst dress- T-shirts with stains and oversized pajama…ha..ha…It’s just one of my testing if he’ll still pursue me if he’ll see the “real” me…Good thing that he didn’t back-out. ..LOL! At school, my classmates were clueless coz we’re not that close at school and he wouldn’t talk about “us”. We just keep cool. He visited me every Sunday afternoon and dined with our family . After a month of courtship, I realized that I’ll give myself a break- maybe it’s time to enjoy what it is to love and be loved. Both of us admit that we’re not yet sure if we’re in love with each other. We’ll just give it a try. He assured me that if I wanna give up, he’ll let me go and if our relationship works out then he will marry me and be the mother of his offspring. It touched my heart. No one ever told me that they will marry me. The moment he spoke those words, I knew deep in my heart that I’ve found a mature and responsible guy.He courted me on August 12, 2001 and I accepted his proposal to be his girlfriend on September 2, 2001. He’s finally sure of himself that he already love me on November 12 . I grow in love with him during our relationship- so much love that I would say “YES” anytime that he’ll ask me to marry him…LOL!
On the fifth year of our relationship, I decided to come over in Thailand and explore the world of teaching English to students of other languages. It’s also a good break for the monotony of our relationship. We wanted to make sure if what we felt before is still the same- is it love or just purely friendship. You see when your relationship stays that long, familiarity already breeds contempt. My stay in Thailand for a year made us sure of our feelings for each other and we decided to finally get married and never ever be separated again.
I went home on October 2007 and got married to Joseph “Josh” my dear who patiently and faithfully waiting for me.He’s the only one for me- my first and last boyfriend and finally my hubby for life:)
We just celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary last October 18 and our son’s 1st birthday. We’re each for the other, both for the Lord. Together we will live a happy life.
