I Got Love!

A year ago, I was a single gay man living in Metro Manila. I had a regular job, paid taxes, went on dates every now and then. It was fun and all, but I knew that there was something missing. Somehow, all the partying and enjoying my singleness just didn't cut it.

Eventually, I met this guy. It was a Friday. 

We went out on one date, and how I could I have ever possibly known that one year later, we'd still be together.

I still remember the first time I saw him. He was wearing a blue long-sleeved shirt and jeans. He walked with such confidence, but I did not find it arrogant at all. The first hour was awkward, we were shifting between topics trying to find something we had in common.

Like any other date, we had dinner, it was at Cyma and watched a movie. It was Mirror Mirror starring Julia Roberts and Lily Collins. 

Before I knew it, the movie was over and we were walking around Eastwood. It was 2AM when I realized the time and remembered that I had work in the morning. He drove me home. I woke up the next day and he was beside me.

Do not judge me.

He took me to work but we had breakfast at McDonalds first.

The day flew by with me feeling ecstasy. I was still relieving what had happened the night before. I got home and started preparing dinner. My doorbell rang. It was him. 

"What are you doing here?", I asked.

"Just enjoying the moment.", he answered.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Gregory, my love, today may not be our Anniversary of being a couple, but today marks the day when I met you. Who'd have thought that in the blink of an eye, you would turn my world upside down.

The past year has been crazy and so amazing, it flew by so fast. I barely noticed it. When I'm with you, everything just seems so much better. There's are times when I still find myself wondering what the hell did I do to get a guy such as you.

I have been hurt in the past but that never stopped me from finding love and then you came along. With you I feel safe and secure. You filled all the things that were missing in my life and now I feel complete.

With you in my life, I no longer look back at the man that I was. I look forward to the man I want to be. Like what you always tell me, we will never know what the future holds which is why we always enjoy the moment, but I am confident that this is the real thing.

It may have taken you 10 years to find me, and it may have took me several jerks and assholes before finding you, but it was worth it because when I look at you, I know that it was worth the wait.

I am your first and I want you to be my last.

Happy Anniversary Gregory.

I love you.

Aw. This is so sweet... Kinilig ako :-)

And sana mas tumagal pa kayo, minsan lang tayo makahanap ng taong makakasundo talaga natin kaya alagaan nyo kung ano meron kayo.
