Honor Thy Partner

Cal Hockley: My fian… my fiancée! Yes, you are, and my wife. My wife in practice if not yet by law, so you will honor me. You will honor me the way a wife is required to honor a husband. Because I will not be made a fool, Rose. Is this in any way unclear?

Do you remember this line from Titanic the Movie? This is the same line that I can utter right now. I want to be honored as someone’s partner. I don’t want to treated like just a friend or barkada.

Yes, you got it now. D.A. and I broke up just now. All he wants to do with me is being with my own friends, go drinking, go partying, or go joke time. You could think of it as me just being his barkada plus sexual benefits, or as if I’m single without the benefits. We never went to a movie, even once.

A relationship has its basic element to call it a true relationship. And I know for the fact that we don’t have this element, even my friends know this. I felt emptier than being single. At least I know if I’m single, I have all the reasons to feel empty. I’d rather be single than to be treated like this. If you love someone, you will show him how important he is and how you want to be with him every moment of his life.

Maybe D.A. is not ready for this kind of relationship, a serious one. I’m not getting any younger and I already past that stage. I gave him a chance, a lot. But same old excuses, same old alibis, same old promises not kept.

Now, back to basics.
