PDA

While having our lunch at Yellow Cab earlier, two guys walk in and took the table besides us. As usual, we chatted non-chalantly while ignoring the people around us until our order arrived. We will be having a 10" pizza and spaghetti meatballs. I don't know if there is any occasion to be celebrated. I hope there is none because this will only means that I'm really bad with dates and my memory really sucks! Anyway, back to my story. So as we eat our lunch silently, I couldn't help but notice the guys that was on the other table. Just like what my radar sensed, they're a couple. Not that it matters to me that the tall guy is a cuttie with nice body and the guy his with we can ignore. No, it's not about that. It's about what they were doing. Although I can barely hear what they were saying to each other, their movements suggests what they feel towards each other. I looked at my Bebhe. It seems that he's not paying attention to anyone as usual. I continued to gaze at what is happening on the other table. They are now both giggling about a joke someone told the other and I saw the hand of the more effem guy flew on top of his boyfriend's crotch. He initially tried to avoid it but later on, he allowed his lover's hand to linger there. I smiled and looked at my Bebhe and thought of all those times that I did the same thing to him under the covers of tablecloths at Pizzahut but didn't say anything. I just sat there and enjoyed the the look in my Bebhe's face as he eat. I love watching him eat.

After our lunch, we walked back to our office. Inspired by what I saw, I put my arms acrossed his shoulders. I met no resistance. I cuddled him closer. I think he noticed something weird on the way I was acting. I just smiled at him and said "I love you" loud enough for a couple of ladies at our back to hear us. My Bebhe doesn't seem to mind but he tugged me towards Ministop so he can buy his smoke. I stood and wait outside. I looked at the almost deserted streets of Libis and wondered how many people will be willing to do such an act. Letting the world know what he/she is feeling towards a certain person. It definitely need some courage and craziness!

In the world that we are currently living in, a society that has not changed since the 1960's, it is very difficult to show your emotions towards your love one. Specifically if you're a gentxt and you intend to keep it that way. But taking a hint from those two masculine guys in Yellow Cab, society should never stop you from doing what will make you happy. Because in the end, it is not what they will say that counts but what your heart does.

that is so right....why should we worry about the people around us? when they matter the least. I am not ashamed to exert effort in showing PDA's if it really means proving how much you love someone...... my 2 cents.

i totally agree with everything you've wrote except for the society we are living in didn't change since 1960.
i must say, there is still no acceptance in terms of this but there is a massive tolerance on the city side at the very least.

but the artik is really really interesting. i go with what black dark heart just have said. hehehe

seriously, nakakahanga yung magkaroon ng courage na gawin yun in public. alam naman nating marami ang hindi pa nakakaintindi at marami rin ang ayaw umintindi. but why mind them in the first place right?

love is love. it's sweet. it's corny.period..haha.mamatay sila sa asar!~~:p

Wonderingcommuter thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. I got the "1960's" theme from Probe team. Anyway, let me repeat what I said to Shamasu, makikita mo rin un! Lapit na! :)


Engz thanks sa pagdalaw at pagpuna! Hehehe mamatay sila sa asar at sa ingit! Sabi nga ni Wanda, ang hindi kaya abutin, laitin. Nyahahahaha :)

there are even times na pag hinahatid ko baby ko sa kanto namin pag uuwi na sya that I'd joke about kissing him goodbye.....he'd look around and give me that ano-ka-ba-wag-dito-andaming-makakakita look, hehehe......but if he says he wouldn't mind, I'd do it.

for me naman, im never one to make PDA, im totally awkward when someone does it to me. maybe im still not comfortable with letting other people see?

dean said...

yung partner ko, sobrang sweet... so expressive. kailang talaga minsan magPDA pero it feels good.

Jhed said...

For me, okay lang naman ang PDA for as long as the couple knows their limits. :)

gripenmanila said...

@Kaikai sisterhood thanks po. Congrats on your 10th monthsary!

@Chris sisterhood ganun talaga pero dapat wag mo pabayaan na macontrol ng paligid mo. Follow your heart!

@Dean sweet nyo naman dalawa. More power sa inyo.

@Gripen Kapatid kung parehas halatang bektas siguro tangap na pero kung gentxt, hindi pa talaga.

TL said...

People are conservative alright. But then again, if your boyfriend doesn't want to understand you, then he doesn't love you. :)

Cheers!
