No Personal-ity


I spent the last week watching 1950s and 1960s romantic movies. Every second of each movie swept me away. The love was so authentic, so pure, so personal. There was a lot of interaction between two people, even though it was harder to communicate than today. Nowadays, there is still interaction but only behind the screen.

Whenever I go on a date, the first thing they ask me is about my presence online. Do you have Whatsapp? Are you on Facebook? Can you add me? Do you have an Instagram? I’d like to check you out!

But why? What will my Facebook profile give you? Will it answer your questions about who I really am? Or do you just care about outer beauty, that inner beauty no longer matters to you? Are people today this shallow and that addicted to tech? That they’d rather spend days and nights texting and stalking behind a screen than actually being with someone in person.

I want to go back to the old days when dating had more meaning, more value, more anticipation, and suspense. You want to know me better, let’s meet and we’ll talk. Let’s flirt, in person. Let’s dance in the streets at night and be silly, in person. Let’s laugh and cry, in person. Show me some personality, in person!

My Facebook profile won’t tell or show you anything!

I don’t know if such people still exist. Do they?

Bad Gossip Never Dies

I’ve noticed that a lot; people prefer to keep talking about the bad that others have done more than the good. I guess it’s true when my parents used to warn me to think WELL before I act ‘cuz otherwise it will haunt me forever!

But why can’t they just let go? Why can’t they forgive? I mean, we all make mistakes and we all are sometimes governed by our emotions and act spontaneously. It’s not like anybody is better than anyone else. At the end of the day, we are all humans that err.             

I think it is a psychological thing. I think that having people making worse mistakes than their own makes them feel better about themselves. But do they have to ruin other peoples’ lives to be self-satisfied?

Now, there’s a good side of bad gossip and that is raising awareness like issues of rape or domestic violence or invading privacy. If a girl wants to be married to a guy who had previous records of domestic violence, then she would have to reconsider. Or some people might think that where they live is a safe place where raping and issues of the like do not exist; this will open their eyes.

I think that as long as there is a greater good coming out of a “Bad Gossip” then there is no harm. But once you meddle with people’s personal lives (such as divorce, parent-child issue,..) then this gotta stop because it will end up with a worse rumor.  As I said the bigger the mistake the happier they’ll be!
