1. Love is not enough for marriage.
Hindi porke't mahal mo ang isang tao eh dapat na kayong magpakasal. I loved someone who had a temper. Hindi rin kami magkasundo because of differences in religion. If I just listened to my heart, I would have thrown caution to the wind. Pero since I was using both head and heart, I let him go. Hindi naman ako nagkamali. —from GIRLTalker janix athena
2. You deserve better.
Don't waste your time with someone who doesn't want you in return. If he strays, then he obviously didn't want you enough. Don't bother with him and find the right guy for you. You deserve better. —from GIRLTalker jaqiiG
3. Change is the only constant thing in this world.
Walang bagay na permanente sa mundo. Lahat pwedeng magbago. You'll just have to be ready for it. —from GIRLTalker dumpee.o13
4. If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away, and if he doesn't want you, nothing can make him stay.
I learned this the hardest way I'd ever imagined, kaya ewan ko kung OA ba ko or what, pero ngayon, ang gusto ko lalake naman ang mag-eeffort para sakin, dahil napagod ako na mageffort sa taong sobrang manhid. Willing naman ako mageffort ulit, gusto ko lang ipakita ni susunod na Mr. Right na worth it siya, before I do. —from GIRLTalker jeninajenina
5. Respeto lang.
Respect begets respect. Ang taong marunong rumespeto sa kapwa, marunong din rumespeto sa asawa/partner/gf —from GIRLTalker soLaris
6. Walang torpe.
Walang lalaking torpe. Pa-safe, oo. Pero torpe wala. —from GIRLTalker oyster
7. Don't settle for anything less.
Sabi nga ni Damon sa The Vampire Diaries... "You want a love that consumes you." —from GIRLTalker geekybride
8. Wait for the right person.
Never settle for somebody just because he is convenient. You cannot feign love nor lust. —from GIRLTalker rastagurl11
9. Don't trust too easily.
Wag magtiwala agad sa lalaki kahit na kilala mo siya. Baka masama ang pakay nya sayo. Nangyari kasi sakin, kaya ingat kayo. —from GIRLTalker krimania
10. Giving up isn't necessarily a bad thing.
I have learned that giving up is not always bad. That giving yourself enough time to heal properly would open your eyes to the abundant opportunities around you, which you failed to see because you were too busy focusing on something that was worth letting go. —from GIRLTalker cinco girl
11. Love yourself, too.
Magtira para sa sarili and choose your battles. —from GIRLTalker home_seeker
12. Get to know the people around him.
Kilalanin mo lahat ng mga nakakasama nya at nagiging friends niya. Always listen pag my kinukwento siya para familiar ka sa mga tao sa paligid niya. —from GIRLTalker yummy05
13. Being too nice can backfire on you.
Wag sobrang bait. May tendency na i-take ka niya for granted at abusuhin yung kabaitan mo. —from GIRLTalker xRylaine
14. Drama is not always necessary.
Hindi lahat ng relationships have to be stressful. Pwede ka palang magmahal ng isang tao na walang halong stress/drama. With the right person, a relationship can be stress-free! —from GIRLTalker skyrimgal
15. Love isn't quantifiable.
I mean don't count how much you give and how much you receive. This isn't business. In the end, the ones who will find it hard to move on are those who didn't give much of what they think they should have. It's something that holds them back —from GIRLTalker Akosiding
16. Men are really from Mars.
Men and women are 100000 percent wired differently. We can't expect men to think, act, and deal with things the same way that most of us women do. —from GIRLTalker sugardrop
17. Treasure the present and look forward to the future.
There needs to be a balance between enjoying the present and comfortably laying the foundation for a future from —GIRLTalker simang
18. No one cheats by accident.
Cheating is not an accident. It is perfectly planned. It starts with talking to the prospective third party, until it leads to lying and cheating. Hindi yun aksidente na nadulas ka at biglang napasok ang **** niya sa **** nung isa. —from GIRLTalker honeybunny
