Where to Look for Love as You Get Older

As you get older, you become enamored with the thought of someone to spend your life with. Those biological clocks tick on high speeds, after all. So, if you are ready to put yourself back on the proverbial market of love, considering looking for romance from the following places.

Go for the Classics

The dating classics are considered movies, libraries, coffee shops, and even the grocery stores. Those places that have become your weekly routines. But, instead of staring at your phone or computer when perusing the aisles or sipping your java, make eye contact and smile with others. Your confidence is like a lure. Throw it out into the plentiful seas of love and see what you catch.

Opt for New Age Methods (Just for Fun)

Some people invest in purple and pink crystals to cleanse their energies and invite love into their lives. While other people go to designated love psychics for hopeful readings about the romance in their future. Whatever your case may be, you could find some fun and light-hearted hope in pursuing new-age methods for finding love. Don’t take it too seriously, but definitely have fun with what you learn.

Fire Up a Dating App or Two

Dating apps are the most used method for finding love in the modern age. So, swipe right, send a wink or a kissy face, and wait for your love interests to drop a few lines. You might have to swim through some fakes to get to the real gems, but it could be worth your while. For you, romance could truly be a click away.

Wait for Love to Come to You

The belief is true: sometimes you will find love at the moment you least expect it. Strive for friendship first and see what develops. Instead of looking for love specifically, look for someone to talk to, to have fun with, and to share your time with. Be friends for starters, then see if either of you catch feelings. Or, simply choose the single life for a while, but have some fun on your own. Go out, celebrate who you are, and be free for a bit longer. You never know when Cupid’s watching.

Take the aforementioned advice with a light heart and good humor. There are bigtime possibilities that you will find love almost anywhere, but you have to be happy by yourself before you can be happy with someone else. Let love happen.

Highway 81

It has been months since my last post and it feels just like yesterday. With so many things and seasons happened in between, Halloween/ Christmas/ the New year and Valentine's day, there's a lot of things to talk about yet I'm still lack of something to say and don't know what and where to start. But for sure I had meaningful months behind me.

To start of, I have 2 'kwentos' for this LOVE month. First up is the out-of-town birthday celebration of my daughter who turned 6 last week. In Davao, we also have our own version of 'Tagaytay City' or 'Baguio City' because of its cool climate. Situated at 4,000 feet above sea level, Brgy. Buda, which word is derived from Bukidnon-Davao Highway, is our retreat for the weekend. It's nearby places are Davao City, Valencia and Malaybalay cities of Bukidnon.

We went to this relaxing and chill place called Highway 81. From the name itself, it is located along Km. 81, literally along the highway of Brgy. Salumay, Marilog District. Check out below some of the photos I took.

The reason why we are here. Happy Birthday dear!

Snippets inside their quaint resto. I love bricks! Much like England's structures.

I love their food! Super! Must try: Pasta Carbonara, Pork Adobo, I love the crunchiness and juiciness of their fried chicken, Bulalo soup, deep fried fish with white sauce.

I took a video of the surroundings. Please bear with it as I got lazy to stand up on where I was sitting. It's so cold during that time that I just want to sit, sip coffee and savor the beauty of the place and sunset.

This is where we stayed for the night. We are 14 in all and we fit into this cozy and charming log cabin house. It has a comfort room inside with hot/cold shower, a small kitchen with stove where you can cook, the upper floor is the sleeping area. It has a grilling area outside.

God is truly amazing! I felt grateful every second I was here. I saw every creation He has made and I am in awe.


Valentine's day was not over yet as I got to spend quality time chatting, bonding and savoring the place with the loves of my life.
