I have always been amused at how people set high standards when it comes to finding The One, as some call it.
Just yesterday, I was coming back from lunch when 2 women and a guy went in with me in the elevator.
"Sana naman gwapo yan." said one girl with a hint of irritation.
They were setting her up with a guy again, I think. And from the tone of the woman's voice, I'm guessing the first one didn't end up well.
The guy, not knowing how to respond just said, "siguro naman" while I just rolled my eyes.
"Tsaka sana matangkad. Kasi kung may parties, ang chaka naman kung hindi ako nakaheels dba?" she said to the two, smiling as if seeing herself in a large crowd wearing a gown and in 5-inch heels. "Ok lang kahit hindi masyado basta pwede pa din ako magheels, ok na siya."
Goodlooking was not enough for her, she wanted the guy to be tall too?
'Goodluck finding that in your condition,' I thought. I ain't no beauty expert but the girl needs a major overhaul. 5 years in the gym (5x a day at that) and some plastic surgery could do the trick.
"Eh panu kung matangkad pero hindi gwapo?" asked the other girl.
"Ah ok lang un. Basta malinis tingnan. Maputi or tisoy. Nice teeth. Maganda manamit. uhmm.. ganun. Alam mo un, maihaharap ko sa friends ko, sa family." little miss piggy replied.
After a few floors and a few more demands from the girl, they eventually got off and left me contemplating on what had just happened.
I may have my own preferences when I'm looking for The One, but as far as I'm concerned none of those, based from my past relationships, were found on one particular person. And I'm pretty much fine with it because at the end of the day, I smile at the thought of content and satisfaction just being with that person.
Tsk. I'm getting old. I don't look for a car or a personal Santa anymore. Just that smile that keeps you wanting more; the pain of waiting so that you'd be together again. (Now this is downright cheesy! Ack! I just finished Twilight and you have got to read it!)
Who would you rather have, a visually-stimulating person or a mentally (and emotionally)-stimulating person?
2 out of 3 is fine by me.
If that girl finds an instant connection with her next date, even if it was the most uninteresting person she could imagine, I doubt she'd ever let go of him.
I'd surely want to see that happen. :)
