The five things.

A few weeks back, I came across a list of things that I could write here. It's a really interesting list, and we shall see how it'll pan out. 

So here is the first one on the list : Five ways to win my heart.

1. Just be clean, and healthy.
I will not lie and say otherwise. I absolutely love men who smell good and most of all, look well-groomed. He doesn't have to be the best looking one among the crowd, but it's true what people always say, people who smell good are instantly attractive. I concur. 

If there was one thing I could point out to all men, it'd be, just lose the facial hair and long armpit hairs. It's not I want smooth and hairless armpits from men, it's just that, perhaps a little trim would do. 

And how awesome it is to hug a man who smells so damn good? The hug could just go on forever! 

2. Be a true gentleman. 
But, sometimes jerks win hearts, too. And that's a real shame for the entire mankind. I don't know how they get away with it and still be wanted by many. Perhaps they smell TOO good. 

I'm not talking about the ones who'd carry a boombox over to your house and play a nice song or the one who would jump over a rotating ferris wheel just to ask you out on a date. Just men who pay for your meals even though you insist on paying your portion, men who hold the door open for you, men who buy you cakes/ice creams whenever they know you're in need of some pick-me-ups, men who genuinely care about you, men who shy away from idle gossips, men whose manners are close to impeccable and men who are punctual.

I can't say if being a gentleman is a trait men are born with or if it's a skill that men pick up over the time. But what I do know is that being a gentleman is a matter of choice. It brings such happiness when men are genuinely interested in you and care about you. 

3. Have a good sense of humor, but generally keeps himself cool. 
I'm easily amused, and I laugh at even the silliest things. But I have a soft spot for men who are easily amused, too. Probably because I tend to act and say stupid things at the most random times, so I wouldn't want to get the stink eye from men. 

Girls are more at ease with men who are able to crack jokes, because let's face it, laughter is the best medicine, and also the best ice breaker. 

I have a knack for guys who appear cool and collected. There's something so charming about guys that are either sitting or standing calmly in their own personal space rather than constantly be out there, acting like total buffoons. 

If I wanted someone, I'd want someone who would balance my quirks and outgoing attitude.  

4. The one who thinks surprises are the sweetest things he could do for a woman.
I love surprises, good, well-meaning ones of course. I like the extreme gush of happiness whenever someone surprises me with something. I like knowing that he has the effort to show that I mean a lot to him. 

I like knowing that I'm constantly on his mind and that he appreciates both my presence as well as absence. Because a real guy wouldn't stop showing his affection and love for you even after he has gotten you. 

Just imagine coming to work and finding a box of chocolates on your table. That would surely take my breath away. 

5. Encourages me to be a better person. 
But not in a overwhelming way, and definitely not the one who pushes his beliefs down my throat. I come with a lot of baggages, and I definitely cannot stay around someone who thinks my baggages are his troubles. 

I like this quote that says, "When it's right, you'll not feel lost and confused." That's how every relationship should start with, in my opinion. I think I've been so discombobulated for so long, and I need a fresh start. 

It's not that I couldn't make myself better. But I think, when you've been on your own for too long and when someone new comes into the picture, feeling right is one of the greatest feelings on earth. And when you start doing better things, I don't think you would stop, now do you? 

So, that concludes the first item on the list. Perhaps you have your own 5 things, too? :)

A letter to you.

Everyone does things with reasons. People steal because they need the money. People cry because their hearts can't bear the pain. People travel because they love seeing new places and new faces that they encounter along their ways. People leave because they have no reason to stay.

That's exactly why I left; I just couldn't find any reason to stay. I used to want to stay so much, to fix whatever was broken, to be the kind of person I'd always wanted to be. But the longer I held onto it, the more I realized it was something I was fighting alone. It had been that way for a long time, it just took me awhile to admit it to myself. 

Because admitting something that could be right and wrong at the same time is very hard. 

I knew my own shortcomings. I know what I am like inside, and I'm no longer afraid to admit it. I'm flawed in so many ways, but aren't we all? If I stayed just to make everyone happy, would it be good for my own heart? If I stayed just for the sake of holding on to something that was good in the past, would it be good for any of us? 

Would you stay for something that no longer made you happy? 

It took me years to admit it to myself; that I could no longer do it. I have been walking around with a tape, trying to fix every mess, every hole, hoping that it'd account for something. Whatever it is, just as long as it's something. But who was I kidding? 

Because in the end, people only see the mess you've left. 

There isn't any other way for all these. All the things I had to let go, all the feelings I had to put aside, all the blames I was willing to take, all the nights I spent deciding, all the courage I had to gather. It wasn't easy, and it sure did hurt. 

But the road I chose did not come with all the things that happened to me. It was something I really should have done a long time ago; back when we kept sweeping our mess under the rug, hoping someday they'd never haunt us in our future. I think that was where we went wrong, because messes needed to be cleaned up, which we never did. We kept thinking, if everything was okay, nothing needed fixing. 

And so I had to decide; to stay or to walk away. And how do you tell the one you love that it's time to walk away?

I wish there was a better way to do it, but believe me, how selfish or wrongful it was, I'd be better off this way. I couldn't hold on to something that I knew I couldn't keep. 

I'm sorry for all the pain I've caused, and I'm sorry for all the broken promises. I'm sorry for those who have gotten hurt along the way. 

But, I figure that, it's finally time to let things go, and above all, to let me go. Let everything about me go along with the memories and the pain that you've felt. Let me go into this world of uncertainties and stop looking for me. I believe something else is out there for us. It's time to be free of me and trying to know every little thing about me. 

We've been through this road many times, and no, I'm not willing to go through it again. I don't want all the judging and finger pointing to start all over again. Yes, the pain will never go away, but the longer you hold on to me, the more you try to find my every mistake and start judging. 

Be happy, and most of all, please, just let me go.
