RELATIONSHIPS (for the girls out there, and for men too)

I was commenting on Kayni's latest blog entry but I kept going on and on that nagbainak so I cut and pasted it here. You might wanna read Kayni's entry to get a background.

I remember my grandma's comment regarding the inability of celebrities to stay happy in a relationship (or to stay faithful in a marriage relationship), unlike their generation before. She said maybe it's because of the things we eat nowadays. Hehe!

I am a believer of the religion :) "Love is a choice." I believe that Cinderella could also have been happy with the chimney sweep (borrowed from the movie EverAfter:). I heard people say, choose the one you think is best and make the best of it. Sounds simple enough. But that's in principle. Of course, it gets complicated in real life. Personally, I (and I'm sure many others) chose the person my heart and mind told me to choose, married him (rather had him marry me, lolz), and promised that everyday, I will make an active choice …
