Five Guys

If i have some free time to spare (talking as if i am really busy :P) i am probably reading blogs and articles in the net. I once saw a blog through facebook long before, December 2013 i think, and i got curious and opened it. It is named The Single Woman. :) Don't get me wrong though i'm not a hopeless romantic nor searching for love. I just really want to know what this blog has to offer. As i browse through her blog i saw this post which got me and made me read the whole article smiling. Nakakahypnotize! :)) And so i think it would be better if i will share this with you. :)
The post is entitled "The Five guys Most Girls Will Love at Some Point in Their Lives". Maybe at some point you understand now why i opened this article and why this seemed interesting. Hahaha :)
1. The First Love. Have you had that one crush in High School or maybe in Grade School whom you just can't stop thinking for some reason? If that's the case then i might conclude that he/she is your first love. Sweet, innocent, idealistic... that's what they think about it. He’ll teach you to drive, to LOVE, to open your heart and trust and take chances, paving the way for all the other loves still to come…and then he’ll move on. 
2. The One That Could Have Been (But the Timing Was Always Off). This is the love that you regret, the love that might have been. There will always come a time where you think of all the "what if's and what might have been's " if you end together. Maybe every time you started to get close, life or work or something else completely unexpected came between you. Maybe it was simply God watching out for you, because He knows the two of you burned too brightly together to ever sustain a lasting spark. He might be the love that seemed so meant to be that it wasn’t. The one that you were sure you’d never recover from until you did. 
3. The Bad Boy. I guess he is the most common type of guy nowadays. The guy who dated a lot of  girls and the guy who broke a lot of hearts. This one will probably steal  your heart in your early 20’s, in those years when you’re trying to figure out who you are and who you want to be. You’ll think you can change him, but you can’t. He’ll make you cry as much or more as he makes you laugh. Underneath it all, you suspect he has a heart of gold…and he probably does…but it will take years and many women after you to uncover it.
4. The One That Got Away. You once thought that he's the one, that in the end you'll end up together but because it's the real world there are still big chances of what might have beens. This boy will seem perfect…He’ll say all the right things, do all the right things, be the very picture of everything you ever imagined you wanted…except now that you have it, you question if you’re ready for that kind of perfection. And chances are, you’re not. Life knows when you’re ready. GOD knows when you’re ready. So even though The One That Got Away offers you everything you thought you wanted, he offers nothing you KNOW you need.  
5. The One. This is probably the sweetest thing ever. After all those guys who came there will always be that one who will outshine those 4. I like to think he’s a mix of the four loves that came before him. I like to think he’s sweet and steadfast like The First Love, and passionate and challenging like The One That Could Have Been, and a little wild and rough around the edges like The Bad Boy, with the heart for commitment and building a life together like The One That Got Away. But I suspect he won’t. I suspect he will outshine them without setting fire to their memory all together. I suspect he will help me see the need for the other loves while also revealing to me in walking, talking form why it never worked out with any of them. He was always my destination. But they were my preparation.

Hope you all got to celebrate Valentines Day happily with your other halves (for those who have) and with your friends ( like me) Hahaha. 

Leaving you with one of my favorite quotation. “They told me that to make her fall in love, i had to make her laugh but every time she laughs I’m the one who falls in love."
