I can still remember my first impression of my wife when I met her way back during our college orientation. It was the summer of 2002. When I saw her, I immediately introduced myself to her and the first thing that came in my mind was, “naku, baka magkagusto ako sa kanya.” 1 year and 3 months after, she became my girlfriend and we were best friends before that happened. 4 years later we got married in her hometown in Kidapawan.
Looking back, my first impression of her is one of those hunches or instincts that I know deep inside will likely happen but I try to ignore not because I don’t want it to happen but because it’s just too good to be true most of the time. What makes me say this is because when I saw her, time stood still and she really took my breath away. That’s why it pushed me to introduce myself and know her name even though I’m not that really sociable. It’s a good thing that I did it.
