Appreciate a man who sings bossing Vic’s songs “Ikaw ang aking mahal” with his guitar untuned. Singing love songs for you even if his voice sounds like cats having sex at night.
Appreciate a man begging for forgiveness at the expense of your mistakes. He will always end the argument with a hug and a kiss that would make you feel nothing is wrong after a long quarrel.
Please appreciate a man who would understand if you couldn’t let him face your parents due to your reasons. He will feel so small with his status, looks, and knowledge but he will wait and prove him worthy to face your parents in your own time.
Appreciate a man who arrives at 9am for a schedule date and wait until 10 30am for your arrival. Even if he inhale all the dust and smoke coming from the jeepneys passing by, he will hug you at your arrival and pretend he just also arrive.
Appreciate a man who doesn’t give you flowers and love letters every time. He knows your dream man is not him and his attitude is far behind your ideal man but appreciate him because he can offer his tears in times of misunderstandings. He couldn’t give you roses and chocolates, but he search for jokes and pick up lines (ung pinaka korni na yata) for your smile.
Appreciate a man who creates a dream with an open-ended story. He is willing to give his life to you and let you draw the climax of his dream with you right beside his arms.
Appreciate an engineer writing an English letter for you. He bleeds RED and BLUE in his nose but definitely he doesn’t care even if the readers would laugh at his grammar because he knows that this would make you appreciate him even more.
