#FidelSonjiaForever: The Proposal

IMG_6083On May 31, 2014, Fidel asked me to marry him. What I thought would be a celebration for Fidel’s dad’s promotion turned out to be a different celebration. Here’s a video made by Parkway Video Production House (Thanks BD and Russell!) to document the whole thing–from him buying flowers, to asking a guy at a salon if he could cut in for a haircut, to him kneeling down on one knee, and my not so flattering “Yes!” Included, are also those people working out during the proposal! Hahahaha! Thank you also to Themes & Motifs for featuring Fidel’s proposal on your latest Inspirations for Weddings magazine issue. Thank you to our dear family and friends for making this such a memorable day for the both of us! To God be all the glory!

The other day I had another privilege to write for Act Like a Man for their What Women Want Men to Know series. It’s called Questions to Ask Before You Pursue a Girl. Click HERE to read the full article. Again, thank you Pastor Dennis for the opportunity! 🙂

Recently, I have received a few messages asking similar questions, so I have decided to write this in the hopes of answering them all at once 🙂 ha! The questions have  looked like these:

What if you don’t assume but you meet this guy na kahit wala namang ginagawa e… I don’t know…

I really like him, and we’ve been great friends but just recently I’ve noticed a change in the way he treats me. We used to spend a lot of time together but now, even in the presence of our friends, he rarely speaks to me or notices me… What’s up with that? Should I subtly encourage him to pursue me or should I just let it go? He has all the qualities I’ve been praying for… We are both students.

He is my friend, and he treats me in a ‘special’ way, and even talks to me in a ‘special’ way…  I think I may be ‘falling’ for him, but I don’t know…

What do I do? Read more

Don’t assume!

Don’t assume!

Last week I wrote an article for Act Like A Man called, “How Not To Be A Jerk!!!” (Thanks Pastor Dennis for the catchy title :p) I was surprised at the response it generated so I decided to write a follow up. This time, it’s for the ladies! 😀
