lost in courtship (nanliligaw, naliligaw?)

Recently I had a casual chat with with some of the people I work with at the hospital. I don’t know if I’m just betraying my age with my answers or if they just belong to a different generation with a different set of rules, ideas, ideals and ideologies.

I told them that it’s been a while since I actually courted anyone to the point that I practically don’t know how to do it anymore. Guffawed was what they did, and they told me that it’s not a problem as less and less people actually do it. They further elaborated that now, a simple sms will suffice. Talk about being an old fashioned dinosaur.

Then there’s the courting from a distance (ligaw tingin) to which I probably have to admit to doing several times in the past. And for those who think thay know me already inside and out, no, it’s not who you think it is.

I would have wanted to stay and chat with them a bit longer but it was a duty night and there was work to be done and the night was young. Perhaps, at another time we might talk about this again, and maybe that time I’ll admit who I might court given the chance…
