"I've always wonder why I don't have a successful relationships in the past. I've got two ex-boyfriends, the first one initiated our break-up which make me reflect if the problem was in me. We were both schooling that time, I don't know what happened, one day he just says point blank, "pwede pahulay sa ta? Cool of sa?" To save my pride I replied, "sure why not!" without asking the reason's for doing so. I stop my communication with him and never bothered about him. When my friends asked what happened, I just say we both want to end the relationship. But deep in my heart, it shouts, "Why did it happen?" Can we have a second chance? Is other girl involved?" I strive to move on. Two years later, I've got another boyfriend, just a fling, hoping to cover-up my heartaches but it lasted only for a year. Now my first BF found a way to communicate, pestering me of getting back. With this gathering I can see myself being happy with the WAITING." -female, 21
"As a teenager of today I know that marami na talaga ang nag engage sa pre-marital sex, one of my friend got pregnant already, nasayangan jud ko sa iya. I know that sex is panandaliang aliw lang. Sadly, I have observes that many of my classmates are doing - it is really alarming. It is good na may mga taong gumagawa ng hakbang to remind the young people."-participant
