TV’s Best Bromance Relationships

1. Howard and Raj

This Jewish and Indian codependent relationship never fails to make us laugh in the TV series, Big Bang Theory, especially on the episode where they test out a french kissing stimulator.

2. Ted, Marshall and Barney

Rather than the usual duo, we have these three musketeers. From slap bets, engagements, mystery tales of pineapple, you know their love for each other is real and strong.

3. Ryan and Esposito

Detective Ryan and Detective Esposito are more than just partners, they’re brothers. It has been tested by death defying cases, women and secrets yet their relationship still remains strongly intact.

4. House and Wilson

House Wilson

A subtle ripoff from the Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, House and Wilson still remains my favorite among all the “bromances” in TV. Though the series always portray them with a serious dilemma, they also have their fair share of mischief which adds a fun element to their dynamic. I remember a scruffy looking Wilson and House on motorcycles in the TV show finale. Wilson asked what they will do once the cancer gets bad. House shrugs it off saying, “cancer is boring” perfectly describing their sometimes rocky yet oddly secure bromance.


Thoughts about the guys I have been with.

DSC_0023 copy1. You still pop in my head once in a while and that’s okay.. Or so I keep telling myself. I think it’s a bit unhealthy that I still think we could be friends. Maybe it’s just me thinking how much of a waste it is to just throw away what we had. I am not in love with you but I do care about you. I think it’s a bit sad that no matter what, when you need me, I’ll be there knowing that you won’t be for me.

2. What we were was just a casual, no strings attached relationship. You gave me the thrill.. The excitement I needed when I asked for it. That’s all we were and we’ll ever be.

3. When I first met you, I didn’t really pay any attention to you. You were just like any other guy and then you wore that bow tie one night and you sounded so much like a dork I couldn’t help but think, “Wow, how cute is this guy.” You caught me by surprise and I liked how different you were. Everyone thought you reminded me of him and honestly, you did, in the beginning at least. However, getting to know you, I realized how unique you were. What we had didn’t last long but I thought it was enough.

4. You’re my best friend and the one that taught me that life is nothing without adventures.

5. One night of indecency.

6. Your efforts are not in vain. You are probably the one that loves me the most at this moment. But you seem so perfect that sometimes, I feel like I’m not good enough for you. I can’t give my heart not because I don’t love you too but because I don’t know if I love you enough to put aside everything and be with you. Can you?

7. Finally, I found the one man who I can imagine with for the rest of my life. But you, you’re the one that I want but could never have. Once it becomes too convenient, you start drifting away so fast I actually have to pinch myself to make sure that what we have is not just an illusion. I’ve been trying to purge the memories I have of you and going over them one by one to see what I’m doing wrong. I don’t know if I say too much, say too little, do anything too wild.. Maybe, you just aren’t that into me. But if that’s not the case then I think I deserve a little explanation about how every time it gets too deep, you move away. I don’t know exactly how I feel about you now. All I know is that I truly care about you. It might be love and it might not but I’m not planning to tell you.. And I guess, when it ends, that’s my fault for being a coward.

You accept the love you think you deserve.

What compels a woman to settle with someone who does not even make them happy? Why do we constantly chase men who are not even that interesting? Is it really because we accept the love we think we deserve?

Early this morning, I was skyping with my friend, Tash. We were both ranting about the guys we like and how they weren’t giving us the attention we wanted. Over the past few weeks, we started developing underhanded ways like changing our profile photos, giving them gifts and even posting photos of us with other guys to try to make them jealous. All of these effort just so they notice us! We were acting crazy! It was only today that we realize how pathetic it was. Why are we running after them when they should run after us!

It was this enlightening conversation that made me believe that I deserve so much better than what I am receiving now. I know what I want now in my life. He is not that guy. It’s time I stop doing stuff that is detrimental to my self-esteem and start working on being the girl who gets what she deserves! I feel empowered at this moment. Being confident about one’s self is truly rewarding.

So for all those girls who keep on giving, stop. For all those girls who keep on chasing, stop. Anything you chase in life runs away and every time you give your all, you deal him with your best card. There wouldn’t be anything left to appreciate. Let us all stop devaluing ourselves and start loving us more than we love them. Confidence is key.

Like what those girls in the sex and city movie sang, “I am strong. I am invincible. I am woman.”

We accept the love we think we deserve. It’s time we start thinking how we deserve the BEST that life has to offer!
