(‘Cause when a heart breaks, no it don’t break even)
Relationships end for various reasons. But whatever those reasons are, sitting alone in a corner drowning in blame, rejection, and feeling sorry for one’s self is not the answer.
In this seminar-workshop, you will be challenged to face the reality of your break up by understanding the most important key to moving on – YOU! As a preparatory step towards the transformation and healing of a broken heart, this seminar-workshop shall explore questions about the self that could help you gain insights as to why you are the way you are in your relationships. We shall explore what you were truly looking for in your past relationships, why you seem to gravitate towards a specific kind of person, why you find it so difficult to move on, and why you cannot seem to let go of the pain. Remember, focusing externally on your ex, or on what he did or did not, surely isn’t the answer. The answer is, and has always been, inside us.
So, whether you are in a current state of denial, anger, confusion or sadness, this seminar-workshop is for the grieving broken-hearted warrior who has the courage to meet his own shadows and embrace his inner monster. Be ready. Be brave. And transform that beast into a handsome prince.

Just want to share with you a horror story that happened to me last Saturday in Shangrila Plaza. Wala kasi akong mapagwentuhan and I donâ€™t want this experience to be put to waste.
There was this guy whom I had eye contact with while strolling in the mall. He seemed nice, nagsmile back sya sa akin and introduced himself as Jojo. Ang sabi nya, may kameet daw sya dapat from Cavite but hindi daw sumipot. Everything was fast paced and wala na kaming patumpik tumpik pa – malapit lang daw ang place nya and he wanted to do a quickie with me. I must admit that heâ€™s good looking and maganda talaga ang katawan and wala naman akong plans that day so sumama na ako. Along the way, kinwento nya sa akin na heâ€™s working in a call center and that heâ€™s 25 yrs old. He then asked me if I was top or bottom, sya daw kasi versatile.
Akala ko we were going to his dorm or apartment but I was surprised that he brought me to a motel near Starmall sa may Shaw. I was also surprised na meron syang discount card â€“ naisip ko baka gawain nya talaga â€˜to. When we entered the room, â€˜di ko maintindihan kung bakit parang may binibilin sya sa room boy and he didnâ€™t want me to hear it. Then ang sabi nya, hati daw kami sa bayad sa room.
In a relationship? Happy but somehow can’t help but think, is this it? Perhaps doubt has crept in, can man-to-man relationships really work? Yes you’ve heard of long-term relationships among guys, but still you wonder, is there a secret to long, happy, and fulfilling same-sex relationships?
MENFRIENDS (Conscious Partnerships)
A Two-day Seminar/Workshop
This is a two-day seminar/workshop for gay couples who wish to explore deeper understanding about the nature of interpersonal relationships.

This involves short lectures, discussions, and sharing of experiences. The workshop is patterned after the perspective of the Conscious Marriage Model by John Lucas and Lorna Benjamin’s Structural Analysis of Social Behavior, facilitated by AJ Sagmit (Ph.D. candidate, Ateneo de Manila University), and hosted by Migs the Manila Gay Guy (Life Coach, Hudson Institute of Santa Barbara, California).

I have been an avid reader of your blog since last year. Since then, I always look forward to reading your postings and letters from your avid readers.
Let me tell you something about myself. Im Joey, 27 years old, working as an engineer in Saudi. I recently read the letter “Engineer in the Closet” sent by one of ur avid readers, this prompted me to share my story. The problem with my situation is, Im married.
I have been working in Saudi for the past two years. When I left for Saudi, I heard a lot of stories of how most Pinoys get molested their because of their looks. My friends would tell me magpatubo ako ng balbas para di ka ma-rape dun. But I am a very clean cut guy, I hate beards and goatees. Parati naka trim ang facial hairs ko so Im not used to letting them grow long.
Work was hard for the first two weeks, namiss ko ang asawa ko. Nakaka home sick! Tapos sa work, since ako ang bago, ako ang utusan parati. People are rude, especially the Arabs (no offense meant sa mga Arabo) Uutusan ka nila as if mas mababa ang tingin nila sayo!
After two weeks, I noticed things suddenly changed. Biglang ang bait na nila sa akin, parang di na ako gaanong inuutus utusan. I starting to feel at home, and mas nakakawork na ako ng maayos. The arabs started to invite me to go out after work. Ang hindi ko alam, may pinaplano na pala sila sa akin.
Migs the Manila Gay Guy will be in Bangkok, Thailand on Dec. 27-31, 2012. Super gay vacation! I would appreciate any tips — where to go for massage (hihihi!), places to visit, bars, and other gaily gay stuff to do. Suggestions?
Come join! It’s okay to be who you really are.
i am ian, 30 years old, a professional in the medical field. i just want to share you my story about this guy that i love. im so confused kasi and hurt with what happened but still he has that special place in my heart.
i met ariel (not his real name of course) at a spa along timog. i was the first one to notice him but i was invisible to him that time. he was with his friend that i thought was his boyfriend. his friend took notice of me and flirted. at the dining room, while i was eating, ariel is about to go down the stairs. i stared at him. then as i was about to enter the massage room, he followed me and gave me his number only to find out he wanted to have threesome. and because i like him, i accepted the proposal.
