Ron was visiting Manila for a vacation. He's been based in Singapore for two years now and we decided to meet while he's town.
"So, do you love her?" I asked him.
"Well, I do. But I guess I'm not fully committed. I mean, would I be here with you if I am?" Ron said.
"So why are you with her then?" I asked
"It's lonely there," he answered quietly. "A little love can't hurt, right?"
I looked at him and I saw a look in his eyes that seemed to say "You do understand, don't you?"
Sometimes, I think everything we do in life is all geared to making ourselves just a little less lonely. And somewhere along the way, lines can get blurred. Who can blame a man for taking love when he needed it?
