Okay, I don’t suggest you do that.  I take it back.  You might get sued for assault.

I know it’s hard but get a grip on yourself, mull it over and meanwhile …….

.Are you done ?  Well then , let’s move on, shall we ?.  We lonesome singles should stick and do stuff together.  Let’s be happy in our misery.

And you’ll wonder, why the heck did I ever get attracted to this guy?

  2. You have such a creative way of expressing yourself. You can be my Valentine if you want. Hmm maybe that would be more upsetting than having no one. But really Ren, be my Valentine?

  3. The Notebook…A great movie. I don’t care what anyone says.

  4. Excellent way to do it… ‘lol’

    – but seriously so is the world to day maybe to superficial
    – we can all be nicer to each other even when it is necessary to be negative… 🙂

  6. This made me smile and laugh! Perfectly constructed post in honor of Valentine’s Day coming up. But I will admit, I have no special someone in my life either. It’s always hard when this day comes around, but as you said, we single ladies (and guys) need to stick together. Just have to hope that we will stumble upon the one we are meant for someday. Hang in there! 😉

  18. This is hilarious. I don’t remember having these kind of emotions during the Valentines when I was single, but I guess it’s different for a guy.

    Nice to meet your blog.

    • Haha Some women really take it to heart. I don’t. But some really do, especially those whose hearts have recently been broken.

      Opposite in Japan. It’s the guys who stress out about V-Day. It’s tradition girls give chocolates to guys.

  20. Be patient, love will find you. I really do believe that lovable people (and from what I know of you from your writings here, I think you’re lovable) find their mates eventually. I think I’m quite a bit older than you, but when I was in college, I was often attracted to women who were looking for a more mature type of guy (I mean behavior, not age). I didn’t realize that, though, and it wasn’t until I grew up a little that I started meeting potential Mrs. Rights. Now, I’m not saying that maturity is your problem (or that you even HAVE a problem)–but it just might be that the kind of person who’s right for you isn’t ready for you yet (maybe HE needs to grow up), or maybe for whatever reason, you’re not quite ready for the kind of guy you deserve. Or maybe these things don’t even apply to you–I can only offer my experience.

    I’ve never liked Valentine’s Day for two reasons. 1) As we can see from your post, it makes people who aren’t in relationships feel weird or wrong. There’s nothing wrong with you. And 2) It makes people who ARE in relationships feel like they have to spend a lot of money. My wife is really cool about that, but there’s still pressure–I don’t want her friends/family to make her feel like she’s settling for less if I DON’T do something big. So it’s a big scam either way.

    Anyway, I’m no seer, but I still would bet that yours will be a long life filled with love. Be patient.

    • Oh, this is deep, Smaktakula. I think you’re right… almost all women like “mature” men, mature in their thinking, I mean. But that’s almost a given, isn’t it? I mean, who likes immature men ? The question though, is, what do we consider mature behavior and immature behavior? I want it to be balanced. I like someone who’s fun and at the same time , responsible… someone who will not run away from responsibility. Oh, guess who’s my type ” now” ( it changes hahah )… Steve Kornacki , host of The Cycle on MSNBC… nerd, nerd. ha ha , and that glasses guy I always see reading a book at the library ( the book is Quantum Physics ) Sheesh. It’s weird coz I also like a long haired musician who’s awesome with guitar and piano.

  21. nice collection of those pics/comics, I’m not sure what to call it but they have pretty much explained your thoughts, absolutely clever idea 🙂

    Happy Valentines Day, hope you have a great one!

    Reply

    • ha ha They don’t call the genre ” comics” anymore. It’s ” graphic novel”. I was just lucky to get images that were spot on with my narrative.

      Oooh, have a great V-day too with your lovey-dove. Cheers !

  26. Guh, Valentine’s Day. I dislike it more as a married guy than I did when I was single. 😛

    We are going out for sushi at a really fantastic restaurant, though, so I guess that’s a plus! 😀

    Hilarious post, by the way – that must’ve taken forever to put together!

    Reply

    • LOL, TWWK ! Is it because you’re not wooing her anymore ? I understand though. You’re together everyday, you take care of her everyday, and you get to love her everyday. V-Day is just one of those days, only it has a name. I don’t think my Dad gives anything to Mom either. He he he When they were a newly married couple, I think my dad brought home flowers…. oh, wait, jewelerry ! ! Last year, dad gave her a necklace ! ( I remember that coz I borrowed it from Mom. )

      About the images… not really…. It took me just one day to search for the right images.

      Reply

      • Haha, no! I do get her gifts and take her out to dinner! But the holiday definitely is different when you’re married – at least for me. Now, she’s very specific in what she’d like to receive (NO FLOWERS!) and the biggest gift of all isn’t what I give her, but in what I help the kids make. This year, we’re trying to bake her a strawberry cheesecake (good luck to me and my poor baking skills!).

        Reply

        • Just loving her is enough, methinks. No flowers ? ha ha . Your wife is practical. That’s food money, TWWK ! ! ! He he. But don’t be like my dad…… like gift wrapping a new toaster.

  27. So this is how ladies go through life? As a bloke, so therefore devoid of emotions, I stand in awe that you can cope at all.

    Reply

    • A man is devoid of emotions? @__@ That figures. I guess Mars is really different from Venus. A woman is emotionally attached, like how a mother is attached to her child. I don’t know. But I can imagine that it must be really, really hard to cope. But it’s not a matter of life and death, is it , so I guess it’s fine to make light of a girl’s broken heart. My folks always say to take a nice long bath, sleep it off, things will get better tomorrow.

  30. Your post made me smile, but then you always do. As for “The Notebook”, it’s one of my favourite films. As to why a lovely girl like you is single, or at least not crowded out with admirers is one of life’s mysteries. Things may be different by this time next year. You deserve the best of men

    I love this, absolutely love it – it’s fantastic. Renx, did you create this skit, these cartoons? If so, you so impress me! They’re gorgeous!

    Great Valentine’s Day entertainment, & relatable. 🙂

    Reply

    • I didn’t draw the cartoons, Noeleen. They’re from Japanese graphic novels. I did make the skit, but chose the right images to go with it/ I was lucky I managed to get just the right images for the narrative. It is fun, isn’t it? I’m as amused as you are guys, hahahaha !

  38. Being sad at valentines is not solely being bitter, but it’s just plain sad when you can’t give love and kisses to anyone that special day, right? great post, cuz i love drawing 🙂

    Reply

    • You’re right, gengenp. It’s not being bitter, just plain sad. To be honest, I’m quite indifferent. I think this day is overrated and too commercialized. But hey, it’s good for business. I’m all for that.

      Reply

  39. Your images say it all, nice post, ti was only one day of a life that will embrace many more real and beautiful things! Just stay positive and keep moving forward. The best love is the uncondtional one that comes from genuine friends and the one from family that will only keep blossoming for you everyday, When I was younger I went through many alone, almost gave me a complex! But one day it will get better I promise! God bless always my sister. Your drawings are awesome, you really have some skills! Have a wonderful and blessed weekend!

    • Thank you for the nice thouughts, Wendell A. Brown.

      By the way, those are not my drawings. I got them from Japanese graphic novels, mangas, that I enjoy reading once in a while. They are so entertaining. I guess I haven’t gotten over my fondness for this stuff since HS, ha ha ha. Uhm, I go for serious reads, too, you know, ha ha ha.

        I just finished watching SAVAGES…and it is now my favorite favorite movie. I don’t like blake lively and she played a really dumb ditz in this one, but it was so good. romantic in a weird way. and when it ended I was left wondering..wtf did they get together or what??? I don’t know..

        Reply

        • What is Savages about? Is that a romance movie? That’s an odd title for a romantic story, he he.

          Gawd, I’m waiting for WWZ, starring Brad Pitt, rebecca. I cannot imagine an A-lister like Brad Pitt will be in a zombie movie. I’ll watch on first day, and I hope I won’t be disappointed .

            Savages is about two guys, John – Iraq war veteran, and Ben a genius philanthropist, who are in love with O. Ben and John are in the weed business, and make top quality stuff, and the Baha cartel wants their business. When they refuse, O is kidnapped and is used as a bargaining chip to encourage John and Ben to give the cartel their business. Of course John and Ben do everything they can to get her back. the movie is told from O’s point of view. It is kind of romantic, simply because John and Ben have this love for O and they have this great friendship for each other, and they try to stay together forever.

              its about this zombie R who starts to feel human again falls in love with a human girl. but the girls father is military, and the father is killing all the zombies. its so cute.
              R: this is my best friend. by best friend I mean we stare at each other alot and grunt awkwardly.

              lol that is one of my favorite lines from that movie.

            • A zombie falls in love with a human girl…. hmmmm… he’s supposed to be dead already…. I wonder if he’s a zombie who takes a bath, and brushes his teeth after eating raw human flesh….. I guess no amount of baths will remove the stench of decaying flesh…. ha ha ha….. this is seriously romantic, he he he…. so, what’s the ending… do they get together , have babies and live happily ever after? ROFL…. I’ll watch it ! ! !

            • Posted by ~REBECCA DAWN~ on February 19, 2013 at 9:47 pm

              I don’t know I haven’t watched it yet, but my friend said it was good. ew gross zombie babies. can you imagine. that is disgusting!!
              but apparently in the movie R is turning back into a human..

            • Really? Whoah ! That’s interesting. I hope they will explain how the organs are still functioning , he he he.

              they fall in love, then ex- zombie turns into a human and a vegetarian , to boot.

  41. hello, Ren… ahaha, ang daming nagko-comment. that just goes to show na winner post ito, kapatid. it is so right on. ikaw na, you just know how it feels and you say things like so… 😉 i hope things are alright, keep your cool. he’ll come right along, just in time, ahaha. cheerio!

      Nagpapatawa lang ako, Ate. Heartbreak is a serious business, isn’t it? I wouldn’t want to be in her shoes. Mahirap mag move on, di ba? Yung iba. the weak ones, they go crazy and have a breakdown. My Mom told a story about a friend of hers who saw her BF cheating on her at the university. She saw her Bf making out with a girl in his car at the parking lot. Mom heard that her friend just ran around on the school hallways, sobbing like crazy. She was totally shocked by what she had wittnessed. She was brought to the hospital and stayed there for over a week. Mom and her other friends didn’t know how to console her. Well, I don’t know what happened to her after.

      Men can be so cruel.
