why should it be?

Sunday, December 20, 2009

People see us, and they assume things so far from the truth that I can't but laugh or, at times, scream at the top of my lungs. No he is not my father; he is my significant other, my life partner, the love of my life. Is that too hard to comprehend?

If the age difference isn't an issue between us, why should it be to other people?

why should it be, indeed? as long as you're not hurting anyone, it should be nobody else's business but yours :)

Yes, it happens to me too. My husband's quite a bit older than I am, and he's often mistaken for my father. But for some reason, it doesn't really bother me.
Oh and most importantly, Merry Christmas, Angeli :-)

Hi Angeli, I hope that volcanic activity isn't affecting you negatively, heard there have been earth tremors too!

Age and perceptions are much the same the world over. Annoying certainly but people just can't stop being judgmental; can they? I've had similar too recently but I never did give a damn about the idiocy in others. Enjoy your time together and keep with the laughing bits!

Happy Christmas to you too!

unstranger, it's just too bad some of my countrymen will likely spend Christmas in evacuation centers.

the age gap doesn't really bother me. it's our life, not theirs.

Happy Christmas, everyone!

i'd be bothered if i am the younger one. shorter shelf life would be one of my worries. :)

hay naku, isnabbin mo na lang sila. hindi sila ang nagpapakain sa yo no? marami talagang mga presumptions ang mga tao, cancer ng lipunan.

my own experience as a Pinay is that it's like when you're with a man with very fair complexion, tall and blond hair, the judgment is one or all of the following:

a. you hit the jackpot! (as in, financially secured all of your life.)
b. you found him in the internet/textmate/chatmate
c. you are his bitch!

beelzebub!

1. as long as you're happy and you're not stepping on anybody's toes, then don't bother.

2. it's your life, not theirs, live it the way you want to, and again, refer to #1.

3. inggit lang sila! che! :)
