sad.jpg“It’s normal to press yourself away from love, isn’t it? It’s normal to want to seclude yourself, and avoid ever being placed in such a situation a second (or third) time. With each strike, it becomes harder and harder to recover. OR, if you condition yourself each time, to be less and less involved/absorbed in each relationship, it may become easier with every turn. The only catch with that is that — you’re not in love. What good is a relationship if it’s meaningless? If it only exists as a therapy to your past failures? So you can say that you’re with someone, a nice someone who you care about, and with whom you have a relationship that works. That’s not to say that you don’t love the person, or that it’s completely meaningless. This just means that the relationship isn’t all it could be (if it’s indeed capable of being more- which isn’t always the case) — and a relationship like that may very well be pointless. So, a thought to tack onto this: what if you pursue something real (whether it be in that pointless relationship or with someone else) — what if you pursue this deep, caring, infatuation of a relationship, the kind that makes you infinitely happy and terribly fearful… and then, you end up losing it, being hurt? What a terrible mistake you’ve made! Or is it? Is it truly better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all? What if you’ve already gone through that path once? Should you go through it all over again? Are you setting yourself up for heartache? Or… does your heart ache the entire time that you’re resisting it?” [by Duchess / UNC CHapel Hill]

Water please. Mabibilaukan yata ako. Haaay… hehehe!

Ryan has emailed me a couple of times, and this time, I’m publishing his letter. He is a young college dude fretting over the unusual behavior of his fratman friend. He is obviously attracted to his supposedly straight friend but is worried that he might lose him as a friend if he even dared ask. He asks: is he into me? how would i know? what should I do?

Hi there Migs,

I’m a frequent reader of your blog and I have noticed that you’re open to help other people if they need some advice regarding things on sexuality, relationships, etc. Then because of this I realized that I should ask you regarding this matter because even I am confused on how I interpret my situation.

Here’s the story…

I have a boyfriend, and we will be soon celebrating our 2nd anniversary (I hope…). But this letter is not about him.

Here’s the twist. I have a friend that belongs to a fraternity. Right now I am really confused on what is happening. I think he is giving me some signs. Let’s call him Jay.

I met 2 new friends recently, and let’s call them Tisoy and Chinoy.

Tisoy is a stocky young fellow, yellow-skinned, talkative and articulate, yet masculine in manners. He’s a size-queen top, relatively active in his sex life, and lots of secrets in the closet. I met him online.

Chinoy is a US-bred Pinoy who looks Chinese, sounds American, has Spanish lineage, and speaks Tagalog like a typical Amboy. He’s a cool boy-next-door type, the kind of guy you’d take home to Momma, but has some impish tricks hidden somewhere in his system. He’s Tisoy’s online friend.

Both Tisoy and Chinoy are finegreat-looking and straight-acting gay guys. Tisoy, Chinoy, and I all met for the first time one October night. (And no, they did not know I was Migs, the Manila Gay Guy.)

Previous to the meeting, we have not exchanged pictures so it was really our first time to see each other. When we met, and started talking, there was obviously some tension. At first I thought, is this what they call “sexual tension”? I knew then for sure, even given the fact that there were 3 of us, that somehow the palpable tension had to be addressed. Guess what happened that night?

Former Viva Hotmen member John Harren Cuevas caught my eye again today, so I offer these pics to make your weekend a little bit more exciting.

Here is a letter from Carlo Cruz, husband of Leslie Cruz, one of the fatalities in the Glorietta 2 bombing. His letter stabbed me in the heart, pierced my soul. Carlo’s emotion is so palpable and sincere. May we learn how to appreciate the people around us more and more.

Good day everyone,

I wish I were writing under different circumstances.

I would like to inform you that my wife Leslie Cruz was part of the casualties in the Glorietta 2 Mall bombing in Makati City, Philippines. She was supposed to have a minor out patient surgery at Makati Medical Center at 230pm.

I had taken a leave from work to accompany her there. We dropped off our daughter, Amber, at my parents place in QC to babysit at around 10am. We then proceeded to Makati and was there at 1230pm. Since she had been fasting in preparation for her procedure, she wanted to move around and listen to some music while I grabbed a bite to eat. We parked at the basement of Park Square 2, and headed for the Glorietta 2 entrance. We parted at the top of the escalator, she turned right towards Filbar’s while I went left towards the restaurants. That was the last time I would see her.
