Patama Quotes: “I didn’t know you could get a college degree for being a flirt”

Having rainy day (and post-breakup) blues? These quotes will cheer you up! By Jennifer Chan

Contrary to popular belief, women do appreciate the simple joys in life: stumbling upon a gorgeous dress at a bargain price, seeing an old high school friend at a coffee shop, and, well, bashing unfaithful ex-boyfriends (along with the girls whom they cheated on us with). Okay, that last one sounds a bit nasty, but you have to admit, making patama at these fiends with your best gal pals brings a certain kind of glee. To be honest, it’s therapeutic and helps us move forward.

Now, in our first ever book Bitter Endings: Top 100 Patama Quotes (woot, woot!), we’ve assembled more than a few patama quotes to help you get over the demise of your relationship. Following the four basic stages of romantic grief—spite, anger, self-flattery, and finally, acceptance—we hope that our book will help ease the pain even for just a little while. So, grab a copy, and have a good laugh with your friends. Understand that though this chapter of your life is closed, a new one awaits! You just have to turn page.

In the meantime, check out some of these patama quotes that are perfect for the new academic year!

1. I didn't know you could get a college degree for being a flirt.

2. Daig mo pa ang algebra sa dami ng x mo!

3. Kung tinuro lang ang kalandian sa school, malamang naging valedictorian ka na.
