How to Survive Falling in Love Without Getting Hurt*

1. Draw the line first. Know where you stand and how far you could go.
2. Never expect. It’s bad for you.
3. Never assume. It’s bad for everyone.

Yun lang. 😉

  • Precise…. straight to the point… and true.

    “The secret to a happy (love)life is to keep your expectations low.”

    yun lang din. hehehe

  • I have to agree with the first point, but the other two are the hardest [to follow?].

    One will always assume and expect. Those two things are unavoidable.

    Besides, when you love it’s implied that you’re ready to risk getting hurt as well.

  • Ken

    That’s BS. Hahaha! 😛

    • odin

      uu nga BS


    • KEN, gagu. haha. 😛

  • i love it. however, almost always, even the most cautious of persons still do the expecting and assuming. human mind is designed to perceive, categorize, form reactions and generalize kasi (from the point of view of a psychologist).

    so hayun, ergo, nobody falls in love unscathed (kasi nga, you fall diba?!). hehe.

  • i totally agree. especially at #2. the more you expect, the more you get disappointed, the more you get hurt.

  • My ex-girlfriend would agree on number 2. LOLOL I kid.

    Have to agree with Maki. You “fall” in love, so there’s no point of not being injured. Hmmmm?

    • but we can minimize the pain, you see. hahaha

    love never expects… it’s hope…

    hope is far more deeper than expectations.

    expectations destroy relationships.

    hope nurtures trust 🙂

    yun lang 🙂

    • TREW! natumbok mo! Hope. Don’t expect. hihi.
