A Letter to My Future Ex Girlfriend

“I have been to paradise but I have never been to me” – Charlene

The moment I am writing this letter, you might not have any trace or idea of what is going to happen today. Today might be special for lovers because it is the valentines day but for me, it is extra special as I am now deciding to bring our relationship into the next level. But before anything else, let me express to you how grateful I am to have you; the experiences that we have together and how we conquer things and places.

We started as friends, with a bit of admiration/crush though for me, so to say because I am pretty much attracted to chinky-eyed women. I am thankful that things patched in at the right place and at the right time for us. We started to talk a lot and share things about life and your insights and perspective in life impressed me so much which lead me to falling in love with you. A few days after we started dating, I have decided quickly to put an end to it and start to commit so i proposed to you a formal relationship of officially being a couple. 387355_10150365573641269_73039172_nAt this very moment in the above photo, you said “yes” on Nov 14, 2011. That was indeed one of the happiest moment in my life. I did not expect that my life would be more colorful and full of adventures with you! On our first few months in relationship, I admit that we have been through a lot of challenges but these challenges strengthened our relationship. We had a great job and we were working together in the same company – more time for us! hurray! We discovered that traveling is indeed very helpful to our relationship hence we made a lot of travel adventures and good thing we were able to document it in a blog – This blog! (though I need to repair my previous posts are images are missing. sorry about that). Our first escapade was during your birthday and we went to Moalboal with our friends. I am so thankful to have a very supportive friends.


After that, we became travel and adventure addicts!  We have conquered the Beaches of:

Everything we had will be treasured and will always remind me of how wonderful and colorful our love is – I could not gamble it and replace it with any kind of riches of this world. As we are currently progressing with our journey together with, of course, the guidance of our good Lord, let us always be on support for each other as what we are always doing. I could not promise you everything of this world but I could promise you everything that I am.

Going back to the quote “I have been to paradise but I have never been to me.” Let me rephrase that to “I have been to paradise but I have never been to me, yet.” I am just simply saying that I have been to a lot of places and seen a lot of wonderful things. I call it paradise because I have seen it together with you. It could not have been paradise without you. I have never been to me as of yet because I have realized that one thing left is missing. I will never fully discover of who I really am and who I am going to be if I will not spend the rest of my life with my better half. Now, let me ask you. Please let me find myself by having you for the rest of my life. Will you marry me, Meriangiline?

64679_10151129690821269_1036845522_n I would be happy if you would marry me at the same date and the same place where our love blossomed for the first time.
