I was obsessed with Mr. Richard Gomez when I was in high school. I even cut out his pictures from the magazines and put them under my pillow, hoping that he will dream of me. How could he? He didn’t even know me. I was so obsessed with him head over heels that I was not thinking straight. So when I finally woke up from a very deep slumber and learned to accept the truth that I can not have him, ehehe, I was dreaming of someone who is closest to his features, someone who is “tall, dark and handsome” with some other traits on my comprehensive list; romantic, intelligent, rich (must have big house and hot car).Well, that was 25 years ago. As the years passed, my romantic idea that the absolute perfect guy is out there changed. My priorities started to shift and so did my “must haves”. I started to dream of marrying someone who is loving, understanding and will appreciate the person I am. And so our good Lord answered my prayers and gave me Rhonnel.
Did I marry my dream man? My answer is “NO” if I will base it on my Mr. Right during my teen years and a big “YES” if I will base it on my Mr. Right when I was already matured. Rhonnel may not be tall and hunk (yes, he is dark, lol!), but he is very loving, understanding and accepted me for who I am. He gets along with my family very well, we share the same values and ideals, he makes me feel very special, he is romantic, a loving husband and a great father. Rhonnel may not be perfect but he has most of the traits that every woman is dreaming of.
