Things learned from intergender friendships (General Advice Article) THE PREMISE of this article lies on theprinciple that sometimes, loving a person doesn't mean it has to be romantic and loving a personfor the rest of your life doesn't mean you have to end up marrying them. Can a man and a womanjust be friends? I'd say yes and they should be. Hindi dahil kinaibigan ka, liligawan ka na. Notevery guy who befriends you has an ulterior motive. Get over yourself. Don't flatteryourself. There is a reason why he befriended you, but don't automatically assume that it's because he wants to be your so-called boyfriend. Ifthis will be the principle you'll follow every timesomeone asks you to be his friend, you're gonna miss a great deal from the friendship. Hindi dahil mabait sa iyo, nililigawan ka na.There are people who are natural ly sweet and kind. There are people who are innately goodand no matter how wicked you seem, they just find it so easy to be kind to you. It doesn't meanhe is courting you. Don't put yourself through unnecessary stress trying to figure out if he'scourting you or not. Because I think if he is, you won't have to guess, you'll know and you'll be very certain about it. Hindi dahil he talks to you a lot, he loves youna. You don't befriend a person if you absolutely abhor him, right? Chances are you make sensewhen he talks to you, or you're probably verypatient listening to him. The two of youprobably connect on some level but why does it always have to be assumed to be romantic? Being twointelligent, mature human beings, you need to accept that it's nice to share a cup of coffeeover a stimulating conversation, and that you don't have to automatically put romantic connotationto it. Relieve yourself of the pressure. It's just coffee and a shared interest. Hindi dahil cute ang friend mo, crush/love mona siya. This is the most amusing thing that hit me lately. People always assume that becauseyour friend is cute or should I say, hot (because cute is a word you describe your high schoolcrush while hot is a word you use to describe a hunk), "lakas amats mo na for repapips!" Let me just say this, at least from my own personal experience, I'm just nearsighted, I haven't gone blind. I can still appreciate God'screation! However, there will always be weird things,crazy things, stupid things that will keep you, believe me, from having a crush on him. First of all,you'd know his history with women, enough to judge what's good for you. Second, don't you justhate it when a guy who's absolutely always put together, who looks intelligent enoughpronounces the word country as "kawntri" and the word mango as "meynggo." Call me crazy for judginga person just because he can't pronounce these words right. I admit, I'm crazy. Hindi dahil you hang out with each other mostof the time, you'd end up being boyfriend- girlfriend. Self-explanatory... There are athousand, no million different reasons why things don't always turn out that way. There is no oneproven formula. For all we know, the reason why he likes hanging out with you is because he likesgetting kikaytips from you. He probably plans on being kikay himself and he needs a mentor. A dinner with a guy friend does not necessarilymean equateto a date. Especially if you're paying for your share no. Hello? Three thingsto consider:> the place, the topic and how the two of you actually planned to meet. First, how it wasplanned? If it were a date expect that he would ask you out at least three days before the actualdate to giveyou some lead time, to give you the notion that you are not just a filler on hisschedule. Second, the place, if it were a real date, the both of you would want real food and a placewhere you could really talk things through. Don't go out with a guy to a movie on Friday night ifyou're really serious about him. Going to a movie is more like treating him like a "filler" justbecause you had nothing to do on a Friday nightso you might as well go out. Topic. Ha! You wouldn'tbe talkingabout chikang artista, chikang opisina or argue if the one girl's boobs are real or not.You wouldbe probably talking about sensible, quitepersonal stuff. I therefore conclude that platonicrelationships are never complicated; people just have tendencies to complicate them
