Tales from Friend Zone: Love Advice from Ramon Bautista

“I’m so stupid to make the biggest mistake of falling in love with my best friend”

Remember that quotable quote from that Jolina Magdangal movie? Yes, I was a fan and I watched it over and over again when I was in high school. That was the time where I had a big crush on my friend who happens to be in love with someone else. Not worth remembering really, so to make the story short, I felt stupid because it was obvious that I like him but then why did he have to lead me on and then tell me he’s in love with someone else. Anyways, after what happened, I was very careful not to cross that line again.

But then, it happened again, I met this guy in college, we became friends, we shared stories, advices, I was there for him when he got dumped by his former girlfriend, I made him stalk my crushes for me, we made projects and reviewed for exams together, we went to rock concerts together, we even exchanged answers during exams. So as the days, months, years past, I knew I was falling for him, but I tried my best to hide it, our friendship is so dear to me, I don’t want to lose it, and I don’t want to end up stupid again. Luckily, he feels the same way too, he told me about his feelings for me and I finally told him mine, we crossed the friend zone, got married and now have a beautiful daughter together.

I’m sure most of you guys had this “falling in love with your best friend” scenario before. Not an easy one though. You had these “what ifs”. What if she/he doesn’t love me back? What if we lose our friendship after this? What if she/he  run away and never talk to me again?

So if you ever find yourself in the same situation again, here’s some love advice from watching Ramon Bautista ‘s “Tales from Friend Zone”  youtube videos (it was full of sense and sense of humour really):

1. Just because he’s / she’s kind to you doesn’t mean he / she likes you. You’re just putting malice in everything he or she does for you.

2. Be jealous according to your relationship status. If you’re just a friend then, you don’t have the right to be jealous, so shut up.

3. Don’t settle for a relationship with no agreement, or what they call MU “Mutual Understanding”. Because you maybe having mutual understanding only with yourself.

4. Lower your expectations. What you see from the cheesy romance movie flicks are not the same with reality. Love hurts..

5. No means no. Really. You might as well step back, dont ask again, spare some self esteem for yourself.

6. Never admit your feelings unless your 80% sure  he /she feels the same way as you do.

7. Do not strike when the iron is not yet hot. Heat it up first! Make him/her fall for you.

8. And if all else fails, remember that ..there’s more to life than love.
