Of Relationship Labels and a Complicated Set-up

We may have probably settled a discussion as to what would be our response if somebody asked us: "So, ano kayo?"
You would say,  "He's my significant other", even though I had totally refused because saying so means "You're my boyfriend and we're in a relationship", which completely contradicts your stand of not putting labels to our set-up. Then I wonder what's with labels you're freaking scared of? Anyway, you're good at logic so I believe you can justify your answer.
As for me, I would want to say "Jowa ko," but I immediately dismissed the thought right when I realized Jowa  = boyfriend. So instead I'd say, "He's special to me". Note that I didn't say "someone special" because it's a freaking LABEL! Lol. So, when I got no violent reaction from you, I interpreted it as a silent nod and the discussion was over. 

So what brings me to write this anyway? Well, it just dawned on me that that discussion isn't really over yet. You see, not all of your friends or my friends would ask the same question every single time. We may have an available answer to that open ended question but I just wonder what if instead of asking, "So, ano kayo?", a friend would ask  "So, kayo ba?" 
A simple close ended question requiring a yes or no answer. Whether you like or not, saying yes would definitely put a label on it. But if you say no, you're absolutely going get a double slap from me. Haha. 
So, I'm writing this to challenge you, the one who's special to me. What if someone asks you, "So kayo ba?" 
What's your answer gonna be? 

Gusto mo 'to diba? Haha I love you still anyhow. Bulong mo na lang sakin yung sagot mo pag nagkita tayo.  :-)


  1. What if someone asks you, "So kayo ba?"
    What's your answer gonna be?

    we love each other and thats all that matters! patay tayo dyan! hahahaha!

  2. Why so concerned about what you or he would say to your/his friends? Not everyone has to know what's going on between you two. If he wants to keep this 'mysterious chenes' to himself, let him. What you say to your friends is your business.

    I admit it is a joy to the ears if someone proudly says I'm his but if he's uncomfortable shouting it to the world, don't push. Say what you want and say what you feel. He just has to deal with it. :)

  3. Wag na kasi pahirapan pa just answer: he's my boyfriend. LOL
