On Online Dating and More

24 October 2010. Araneta Coliseum. BMeg vs. Ginebra. 🙂 In the age when online presence is a must, it wasn’t a surprise finding people like me and Jeff who met and started a relationship online. We met on Twitter in September 2010, started dating after a few weeks, became a couple and got engaged in six months, and got married after a year. Yes, we now happily married. And as of this writing, we just celebrated our first anniversary. Jeff was a bit more into Twitter than I am. I was more of a Facebook person.

I learned the term in one reading seminar that I attended. It was my first time to see a dandelion. Didn’t even know that we have that here in the Philippines. I wanted to pick it out and keep it and maybe plant it in my father-in-law’s yard. But I left it alone.
