Thanks to Macky. A classmate & friend back in college.
Thanks to FB, we've just found each other. Renewed our friendship. Shared our thoughts on things. Even life experiences.
I just can't believed I've had a conversation with this guy for almost 5 hours thru YM voice chat. At the same time, we're also chatting using messenger. Multi-tasking 'to!
Plus, he did call me on my mobile phone right after he asked for my number. Though it only lasted for 2 mins. I really appreciate his effort.
Our conversation started from way back college years - old & common friends - work - family - embarrassing moments - plans and ambitions - personal issues on life and love..
Even though the line got disconnected a lot of times and with issues on headset and mic set up, it didn't stop us. No dead air. Thoughts simply popped out from our minds and a conversation would start.
I don't wanna give a different meaning on what we've had. My intention was to help him moved on from a failed relationship, just like what I've recently experienced. And I really feel for him. So why not share what I've just learned from it, maybe it might also help him.
I can sensed he's a good man. He's so kind, so loving, a good son. Though he had lots of not so good experiences, I can feel his willingness to change. And that taught him much on how to struggle against life's challenges.
On the not so brighter side, I can also sensed his deep longing for love, care and attention. He came from a broken family and that made him feel scared that he might end up the same thing with his own family. He has never moved on yet from his past relationship. I know that he needed to vent it out but no one's available to hear his side. He's suppressing the pain, and I advised him to let it all out. So he could have peace of mind. I reminded him of flipping every negative side of things. To be positive and always believe in himself.
The turn out of our conversation left me mixed up. Should I be inspired, stay calm, or be proud? I don't know.. But one thing's for sure.. I feel like a teenager.. with the kilig factor! :)
I'm positive that we would be able to continue and maintain this friendship amidst the long distance. There's chat, mobile phone, facebook and email that would fuel our communication. I'm willing to take the risk for this new found friend of mine. I like talking to him, I like to hear more from him.
