Unsent/The Love Letter

Dear Ex #1,

They say one never forgets their first time. I can attest to that.
Our two week relationship was a testament on how commitment phobic I can get.

Dear Ex #2,

It was nice meeting you.

But breaking up with you was even better. Having a female stalker was a huge ego booster.

Dear Ex #3,

You were my soul mate. You accepted all my flaws. You were always there for me.

That freaked me out.

Dear Ex #4,

To this day, no one can top what you gave me for my birthday.

I apologize for dumping you right after that.

Dear Ex #5,

I felt like a dirty old man when I was dating you. I was in college. You were in high school.

Asking me to help you out with your homework was the last straw.

Dear Ex #6,

Our relationship was like a roller coaster. And everyone came along for the ride.

Dear Ex #7,

For once in my life, I can say I dated a model.

I can also claim I once went out with a bulimic.

Dear Ex #8,

We almost got hitched. You were the first girl I ever said “I love you” to.

I was smitten.

Thank God I finally came to my senses.

Dear Ex #9,

You were probably the nicest girl I have ever met.

You do not deserve me. I am sorry.

Dear Ex #10,

We always had fun. That was the trouble.

Dear Ex #11,

I never really loved you anyway.

Dear Ex #12,

Don’t worry.

I don’t kiss and tell.

Post script: Now who can say men have such lousy memory?

You're counting girlfriends, Raft3r!
Anyway, there is nothing new about your post; most men are really commitment phobic. :p

Btw, here's an article about Janet Jackson: http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20247909,00.html

Oh. My. God.

Haba ng listahan ah. I'm assuming you broke 12 hearts all in all.

Wendy said...

Sa friendster profile mo dati, dun ko nabasa ang comment nya. She sounded smitten. Naks. Thought she looked familiar from her pic. I used to see her in school. I think she belonged to a lower batch so we were never in the same class.

Raft3r said...

liza, Hwag na. Baka lumaki pa ulo non. Hehe

andy briones, No hearts were broken. Nyahaha

wendy, Nyahaha. No comment. Ay mali. Eto na lang para mas controversial: ala-Karylle, mag-retarded smirk si Raft3r. Nyahaha
