You know how people get sentimental or emo during the rainy season? Well I've been like that this past weekend.

Rain and How I Met Your Mother is really a bad combination. It makes one think. A lot. But don't get me wrong, I'm not sad. It's just that there are certain things, questions that now lingers in my mind. A fear perhaps.

While not active, I do go out with people. I try to meet others just like me in hopes of meeting the one. Unfortunately, the one's being elusive. I mean that's fine, the journey to finding him or her is worth it, I think. But sometimes I can't help but feel tired of waiting.

I know I'm not the only person who feels this way. Sometimes we envy people who've met the person that they're meant to be with. It makes us question how long we have to wait, or if there really is someone out there for us.

I thought about waiting for someone to come along because everytime I start looking, that's when I don't find anyone. The people I met, I met by chance. The people I meet when I was looking, none of them stayed.

Maybe there's something wrong with me. Maybe I have too much expectations. Maybe my standards are high. But the time will come. The person who will accept me regardless my flaws, my hang-ups, my craziness will be here. I just have to keep myself occupied while waiting.

Like Stella said, he's probably on his way, he's just stuck in the heavy traffic caused by the rain.

bro, don't expect to find all sunny days with companionship. its hella lot better having a katabi than being alone in the rain. but trust me, you still have to weather a different set of rain and storm.

These are the days when my line of thinking is opposite to those who are like yours. Blame it on jadedness, or a past I let linger as the final month before the first year ushers.

Wait for the epilogue of the Drowned World entry, you'd find out why I compared my story with ex dance partner number 2 to a one night stand.

in fact, just in the middle of my parade, water started to drizzle.

(read my posts and read between the lines)

i used to love the rain. i've had a lot of happy memories sa ulan. but then something happened. and a few years later, another thing happened. now i can't stand the rain. natatakot ako.

sabi ko one time sa friend ko, kung asan man yang 'the one' na yan, sabihin mo sa kanya late na siya!

I can't hate the rain. Maybe because I was born in the sign of water.

I agree the rain can literally put a damper on things. It makes us feel melancholy and blue.

It can be infuriatingly inconvenient - just like love. But
sprinkling the scene, the rain can make it all clean.

it sure is nice if you have someone to snuggle with in this bed weather that we are having but hey, have faith, you just haven't met him yet.

I do, not! :-)

There's something about the way the world looks when it's just rained. It's something to look forward to.

One thing that I noticed though, when you publish melancholic entries, you never fail to disclaim that you are not sad. Makes one wonder.

I love rain, even when I was little. I dance with it..

Here, I can't. Cause it's freezing.
I thought of that too, refer to second to the last paragraph at your post.. All those things and much more.. Ang daming reasons why can't I just find him.. It's true that the ones you met by chance are not actually the ones who stays..

But then, that's the beauty of life.. di mo alam kung kelan o paano o saan.. I'm crazy sometimes, weird actually..

Rain is good. You should find goodness in every not so good things that's happening.

I like walking in the rain. The weather is just fine for it reminds me of bitterness and sadness amidst all the sweetness in life. It makes me human. And I truly share the same experiences and sentiments as yours.

Prolly we need to continue dating some more. :-) Or maybe we need to find someone who behaves like us. Tara! Hahaha

or maybe your standards are unknown to you for now. until you meet that someone who'd eventually fit to that person you are looking for Ü
