Was it by chance that we met in the bar, that one drunken night? Did he purposely put his phone in my bag that night, just so we can meet again the next day? Fast forward to two years later. Even until today we both still cannot believe, on how we came to know each other. I am pretty sure that we were destined to meet each other. One way or another we both found each other. Rihanna's line "We found love, in a hopeless place" perfectly fits the situation. From then on we instantly became best friends. Which later developed into a bromance then now into something more ;)
Although our friendship did not smoothly develop into this. We also had our fair share of bumps along the way. My friends and his were at first were kinda skeptical towards Cheng and I because of how we barely had any common friends and how its weird to have met up at a bar. He felt kind of bad, because of how my friends really did not accept him at first. Eventually however they learned to accept each other and is now part of my group of friends and I part of his.
Back then we really were just friends. But to my friends and his, it was more than that. They saw us as a bromance. They say it isnt normal for people to become so close in just two months of knowing each other. They say that him taking me out for breakfast in the weekends is a bromance. They say that me picking him up late at night just to watch movies is a bromance.
"How can you tell apart a bromance from a normal friendship?" I asked
"You just see a bromance when two guys do things only couples normally do. Im not saying your gay though its just that you guys are so close" my friend said (back then I didnt come out to him yet)
Me and Cheng became closer ever since the night we played 21 questions. We regularly went out and did things together (nothing sexual) as friends for a year but back then we were never a couple it was just a bromance..
Fortunately the storm was not as bad as most of us here in our area anticipated but my heart still goes out to the people greatly affected by Yolanda.
It was sort of hard to write this post because I had a hard time on figuring out what to write today. I hope I dont run out of things to write anytime soon and also I hope that I can still have time to write more despite having classes to attend.. :)
