A Picture That Started an Online Friendship

It is time to walk down the memory lane again to bring to mind those sweet, happy, and sad but worth-sharing memories. I would like to share this one memorable photo that started a friendship between me and ate Therz after uploading it on Friendster. Yes, it happened during the friendster era. Also, this ‘share’ is kind of delicious too…why?


It’s a picture taken at a Jolly-Kiddy Party I attended with the hub! This was taken way back in 2008 I think. Yes, it was 2008 because I surely was married in this size of me in the picture. Haist, see what my husband did to me? He turned me into a…fine… not-so-huge whale but still a whale.

Anyway, this very picture above brought back memories of friendship. That’s the picture that started the friendship between me and ate Therz through a social networking site, Friendster.

See our conversation below:

Ate Therz was the wife of hubby’s friend (an ex-wife now). By the time we met online, she was at the US working while the husband stayed in the Philippines watching over their home construction located not very far from where we lived then. I liked her. She was so warm and friendly that we became friends at a blink. It was fun talking to her esp. when we talked about our other half. I knew she was happy about her husband then but later we heard a bad news that they were breaking up. It happened after she came to the Philippines for a vacation. It was also the first time we met personally, would be the last. She found someone in the US and was reported pregnant. Since then, she stopped talking to me online.

I didn’t know why she stopped contacting me but I had a feeling she was shy or just didn’t feel like talking to me. As a woman and a wife who’s currently undergoing bad issues in marriage  I can understand her.  She sure has one good reason why she left the hubby’s friend and whatever the reason was, I respect it.  I still like her and I will treasure the online friendship we once had.

The New Man In My Life

I have a new man in my life. His name is Aian. I met him through a common friend a couple of years ago. At first, I thought he was a snob and choosy but then, after hanging out with him a few times, I realized we are quite alike. Like me, he is serious or somewhat aloof to new people but eventually get an awesome connection after a few exchange. Deep inside, he has a hidden kalog-ness (goofiness). It takes a goofy person to notice a goofy one. I noticed him. And goofiness only comes out when goofy people is around; we let the goofiness out. It’s how we became friends.

Aian is fun to be with, which is normal for someone who loves to have fun. Aside from Pabz, I found another match in him. Oh, did I mention I met him through Pabz? I am thankful to him for that. Now I have two goofy friends. What I like about Aian the most is that he knows how to balance his mood. When it requires to joke, he jokes – when it’s not, he does not. He has a self-control. There is nothing wrong with having fun but do not overdo it; I learned that from him.

Aian then became Pabz’s substitute. When Pabz isn’t around, I would call Aian to accompany me to party or to just have someone to accompany me for the day or night when needed. I as well became a substitute to Aian’s friends, who later on became his favorite to tag along with when going anywhere, whether it’d be a party or a city activity that he’s affiliated with. I later became someone special to him, someone who’s more important than his friends.

We became so deeply attached to each other to the extent of sharing each other’s secrets. We became keepers of each other’s biggest secrets? Yes, we have a lot! Are you ready to meet Aian now?

Okay, siya na!! Ang bida! Lol!

Oh, how I missed him! There is definitely no dull moments with him. He always makes me laugh. Just by the way he acts and speaks already make me laugh, how much more when he starts to joke. My sisters like him too; his expressions and his jokes.  He is kind of a living medicine when I am sad and I definitely need a doze of him right now. Oh, before I forget, we call each other ma’am with a slang “a”.

I am sharing this to 366 Blog Photo Challenge.
