All The Single Men

Dear Me,


Have you browsed through the latest post by the National Statistical Coordination Board? Love can have many myths but numbers don't lie. According to statistics, there are more single men than women in the Philippines. Being single, I am sure this is somethin' which is not uncharted territory to you. So contrary to your own belief and that of popular opinion by your exes that you're one bad boyfriend, you can claim asylum to the fact that statistics is not on your favor. There are just lesser women who are not yet taken. As if to drive the dagger further, there are more married Filipinas than married Filipinos. Now that's a number that's hard to argue.

There's a glimpse of hope for you though. More women are divorced. I find that mind boggling though. If one woman is divorced, doesn't that make one man single? Or is it just because we hop to the next marriage faster than women after a divorce? Anyway, another ray of sunshine for us sons of Adam on this part of the planet is that more women are widowed. I am not sure if that should make us exalt in pleasure. For it means more of our comrades in arms live shorter than their wives. This should not surprise you nevertheless. As a health care professional, I am sure you are aware that in general, women have longer life span than men.

These are all fascinating statistics supported by scientifically-gathered data. But I know you. For there's that spot where a hopeless romantic never fails to take refuge. The Man Who Can't Be Moved right? Yes numbers don't lie but your emotions don't either. When circumstances call for it, you will take one day at a time - never failing to hope and to believe that out of the so many billion people here on earth there's that one person that's been made to be your equal, your partner, your love. And that's somethin' which no statistic can ever measure.


Lovingly yours,

You

I have related this to an OB-Gyne who works with you in the DR. To which she impishly retorted, "Approve gay marriage in the Philippines and that number of single men would dwindle down to the sewers." Case closed. Happy Hearts' Day!!!!

whoa. pano naman ang its complicated? haha

well, iba na talaga panahon ngayon. minsan kasi staying single is by far the most choice ng karamihan. mapa babae o lalaki o bading o tomboy.

statistics lang naman yun. di ako masyadong bilib sa kanila. like yung sa AIDS daw ng ABS (na may post ka din na nabasa ko lastweek pa). Pinalaki ng daw ng abs ang issue para makakuha ng maganda scoop kuno. e wala naman daw basis yun.

neweys, happy Vday. and maganda pala yung song ng The Script :D

ingat!

I had the same thought as the OB-Gyne while I was reading, hehe. I guess, that pretty much explains the numbers. ;)
