my name's lucky, but i'm about the same...and the simple answer is...you can't have it all...but we must always have faith that one day we could get close to that.

if you keep on looking for her... you might find the wrong one... let things fall in to place and the right person for you should just come along smoothly... love should never be a struggle... it should be the most beautiful thing in your life...take care :)

you ever think that maybe you're TOO NICE to the girls you like? of course you should be, but i mean TOO NICE? like you make it known to them early on that you'll give them the world? i mean a lot of girls will be swoon by that, but when you're young, you wanna be able to do a lot of things that youngns do. like when you're young, and you feel like you just want to experience a whole lot of things and play around and just have fun WHILE YOU'RE YOUNG....

anyway, if the girl you like is in that stage, even if she does have feelings for you, she won't act on it because she'll be scared to break your heart or hurt you.

then, there are those girls, who still want to accomplish so many other things that they think they can't take care of a relationship.

also, if you make it known to the girl that you'll ALWAYS be there for her, then she might neglect your importance you know? you might end up in the "go-to-guy" or "the bestfriend," etc. categories.

anyway, she'll come around someday =)

come to think of it, if you're THAT lucky to have everything you want right now, what else can you look forward to in life? i mean, i know a couple of people who got EVERYTHING they wanted early in life, and i don't know but it seemed they got bored of their perfect lives after a while.... ups & downs.... we need that balance for some weird reason.

anyway, just keep busy and spend time with your family & friends & those who make you happy. chin up! =) you're blessed!

if you choose to linger on negative thoughts, then you'll really feel unlucky. but if you focus on the positive aspects of being single and unattached, you won't feel that way. how do you see a glass of water? is it half empty or half full?

how do you view your life? as far as i know, single people can still be lucky. why not focus on the more important facets of your life first? because maybe god is letting you work on them now before you get too involved with someone.

remember, being with someone whether you love that person so dearly or you're just attached for the heck of it doesn't equate happiness and luck. i think the lord wants you to find yourself first before you can find that someone for you.

try reading "joyfully single" by harold sala. it'll help you ease out the worries you might be having for failing to find your one true love and in the process, mold you into becoming the best person for the woman god has planned to be with you for the rest of your life.

may god always bless you luis!

In Choosing A Good Wife

As a former La Sallian bachelor I had to look for the perfect wife from the shores of Negros Occidental, Metro Manila to the cities of the United States. Fortunately, the Bible gives the criteria which woman God sees will become a good wife:

"A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies." The Hebrew word chayil, translated here "noble," or "virtuous" (KJV), means a wife of valor — a strong, capable woman with strong convictions. This description of the ideal wife does not agree with those who associate femininity with weakness and passivity.

"Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value." Her husband trusts her management of their resources. Her industriousness adds to the family income.

"She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life." This woman does not do right only when it is convenient and profitable. Her actions are not based on how she is treated by others or by what others think. Her character is steady. She is reliable and dependable.

"She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands." This woman enjoys working so much that she plans ahead for what she needs in order to accomplish her responsibilities.

"She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar." The trait not to settle for the mediocre is portrayed by a woman who goes the extra mile for quality items.

"She gets up while it is still dark; she provides food for her family and portions for her servant girls." Though the woman described here has servants to take care of many of the household duties, she sets the pace. She understands that good managers have a responsibility to take care of those under their authority. That is one of her top priorities.

"She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard." Every woman doesn’t have to go into real estate and horticulture — the principle here is that this woman uses her mind. She does not act on a whim, but logically analyzes a situation before making a decision. Her goals are not only short term — she envisions the long-range benefits of her decisions.

"She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks." We get a picture of a woman who vigorously goes about her duties. She keeps herself healthy and strong by proper health practices — good diet, adequate rest and exercise. Many people depend on her.

"She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night." She knows that her merchandise is good and takes pride in doing a good job. Night or day, no one worries that her responsibilities are not taken care of.

"In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers." The example she sets is one of skill and industriousness. Whether this woman would be a computer programmer, a concert pianist, a mother, or all three, she develops her talents and hones her skills through education and diligent application.

"She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy." Although it’s good to donate to needy causes, this means far more than writing a check. This woman shows personal concern. She visits the sick, comforts the lonely and depressed, and delivers food to those in need.

"When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet." Providing clothing for the family is one of her responsibilities. She takes this seriously, and plans ahead. She does not practice crisis management.

"She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple." This woman has high standards and dresses properly for the occasion (so I think any woman who poses sexy on magazine covers is out. The reason is simple. It is simply inappropriate. Moreover, in doing so, she knowingly or unknowingly makes other men stumble).

"Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land." This man does not have to spend half his time trying to straighten out problems at home, and his success in the social world comes partly from her support, just as her success comes partly from his support.

"She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes." This woman runs a business or has her own profession. Her efforts and industry add to the family income.

"Strength and honor are her clothing; she shall rejoice in time to come" (NKJV). Not only does this woman benefit each day from her wise and diligent actions, long-term lifetime benefits and rewards lie in store for her.

"She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue." This woman is well read and has the facts. She knows what she is talking about. Whether about her job, her personal values or her opinion on world events, she is able to express herself intelligently, tactfully and diplomatically. People come to her for good advice.

"She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness." She is an organized, energetic person who carries out her responsibilities.

"Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her." This woman is not a doormat, slavishly trying to appease and please her family, no matter how unreasonable their demands. She is honored in her home. Here we gain an insight into the character of her husband as well. He teaches their children to respect here and the virtues she personifies.

"Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all." High praise for this extraordinary woman — a role model for women of all time.

"Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised." Here is the key to this woman’s effectiveness. Her priorities are determined by God’s will, not her own. She is concerned about what God thinks, rather than with what other people think. Physical beauty and clever conversation are admirable qualities. But if a woman’s beauty and charm are the extent of her virtues, what happens when time and the trials of life take their toll? This woman does not depend on beauty and charm for her success. She recognizes her need for God.

"Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate." This woman is actively doing, not merely talking. She does not boast about her plans for the future or her successes of the past. They are obvious.

Most importantly, a good woman is Godfearing and has a good heart.

i wonder the same thing everyday...i'm a good girl, fun, but why can't i ever be "lucky" in love? haha esp. since alot of guys are turned off my old fashioned views and the whole idea of "courting"...i don't think i'll ever find a guy who appreciates that...maybe you should go around the US and tour around :)

i do wonder about that too. but then, i don't believe in luck coz God has a purpose for everything. so if my non existent lovelife seems unlucky for others, i believe that this molds me to be a better person and gives me more time for other things. it is always a win-win situation because God is in control. and that is what matters!

we don't really know what happed...you have no right to say na ginamit or pinaasa lang siya ni Toni..and if ever she did si Lord na ang bahala kay Toni siya naman ang magdadala nun eh..
but i'm sure toni is NOT the type that would do such a thing...

e ano naman kung nag spend ng ganun katagal sa panliligaw si Luis kay Toni...at least he tried and he never regrets it.. . he has proven his true intentions and that's what really matters..

WALANG NAWALA KAY LUIS...MAS MARAMI PANG HUMANGA AT LALONG TUMAAS ANG RESPETO NG TAO SA KANYA..AT MARAMING NAGMAMAHAL SA KANYA...

GOD IS GOOD...HE HAS A SOMEONE/SOMETHING BETTER FOR LUIS..

LUIS...GOD BLESS YOU!

there must be lessons learned in what you had gone through---

when a girl has not said YES to you in about three days to three mos., chances are she'd never say YES. :)

sa kalibre mong yan? ano ka ba?

pero lam mo, sa tingin ko, mahal ka ni toni. ang lakas ng kutob ko kayo ang magkakatuluyan. i dont know what's with the both of you but my hunch has never been wrong. IT WILL STILL BE YOU AND TONI MARCHING DOWN THE AISLE...

I think that you shouls stay true to yourself. If your nice to a girl that your seeing or interested in then you should stay that way. There is nothing wrong with you, the thing is your probably meeting the wrong girls because if its really the one for you, you will definately know and you will be with her for life. Some people meet there intended real young in life and get married and live happily ever after. It dont matter how young or old you are..these things happend when its mean to.

We cant really say the perfect time for these things..we just dont !

Its like people say, dont get married your too young, who are they to say, when these days no matter how long you have been with someone and marry them and if it dont work you will still divorce even after 30 years..so I think that most people here are right..she will come when its time and you come to her life when its meant to be...she might not even be from Philippines..she could be anywhere really... Stay positive and enjoy life, dont hurt no ones feelings and just be yourself...thats the best thing you can do.... all the best !
