Bridget Jones Sings to Mark Darcy – A Love Story Told in Songs

Surgeon General’s Warning:  Think of the singing as a gift…it’s the thought that counts.  So forget the sometime’s pitchy performance and just enjoy the message. 


November 12 will always be a special date for me and Jher.  It is the day that I “found” him.  It was just an ordinary day, working away from home and searching at the same time.  Today marks that afternoon two years ago when I met my Mark Darcy on line.


Before finding Jher, I was into voracious dating. By the time I found him, I went out on 48 dates in a span of 3 months, of which my friends called me desperate.  But I blogged away and disagreed.  When I went out on those dates, it was clear to me that I was looking for a relationship—friendship at the very least.  At 30, I felt the oftentimes incapacitating effects of being single.  I was mostly lonely because I know I have an immense capacity to love but nobody seems eager to take it (both men and women).  I already started to think that there is something wrong with me.  I also missed having someone by my side. I even composed a song, I Miss Loving Someone, which we entered in Himig Handog!  Sigh.  That’s why every time I meet someone, I always have this song in mind…


Then came November 12 where I found my Mark Darcy.  I was doing an active search on Friendster for people of the same age (God knows I don’t like the young ones. Ugh!) and there I saw the handle:  FURION.  My reaction was, what the heck does that mean?  Matching it with the picture of this guy with furrowed brows under the sun with an Asian temple as a backdrop—equals INTERESTING.  So, like Neo of the cult classic, The Matrix, out of the millions out there, Jher turned out to be the chosen one ….


The first time we met was 4 days after on November 16, 2004 at Starbucks Intramuros.  20,000 points for effort!  Jher was wearing gray slacks and his favorite printed blue polo while I wore a black turtleneck shirt and gray pants.  I greeted him with sunshine, he responded with a lukewarm smile coupled by a quick, scrutinizing head-to-toe inspection.  Yes, my dears!  The way he looked at me, he was more interested in having a root canal operation.  We sat inside the coffee shop, taking a table beside the rest room.  Would you believe while I was trying to give Jher a second chance by being my usual Bridget Jones self, he kept on scoping the cute, chinito barista!!!  I took his face with both my hands, turned it my way, and I looked into his eyes and said, “HOOOOY!!!  YOU ARE ON A DATE WITH ME, SA ‘KIN KA TUMINGIN NOH!!!”  That was the first time I saw him REALLY smile…and laugh.  From then on, I have been introduced to the different facets of my husband’s personality.  I was given the privilege of witnessing how he unfolded and evolved to be a better man I expected him to be (just like how Mark Darcy comes across as haughty, with a gherkin stuffed high up his ass but really is just a nice boy)…


To be continued on November 16, 2006…our 2nd anniversary…

    nyah, bulok kasi dial up connection ko, di ko tuloy mapatakbo ang Youtube.

    galeng naman. 2 years. kami 7 years na. hehehe

  2. ladybug says:

    It’s just too bad that the sound card of my computer isn’t working. I can’t hear anything. But I truly enjoyed the video (picture lang walang sound) and the story of how you 2 met. Wow! It’s been 2 years na pala. Congratulations! And it looks like punong-puno pa rin ng romance ang relationship niyo. That’s a rarity nowadays. It’s just too bad that he’s away right now. I’m sure babawi kayo sa celebration pagbalik niya sa Pinas. Here’s a toast to the 2 of you! May you have a hundred more years of togetherness! 😀 Mwaahhh!

  3. Dinna says:

    Jerome, Jher will fall in love with you again a thousand times with each note you sang in these three clips. You two are very lucky to have each other.. and to have the love you share. Very few are indeed lucky enough to find this kind of love — not everyone is fortunate enough to find THE ONE like we have. More anniversaries to come.. I hope that when we’re all old and grey and probably blogging 3D already, you two will still be together.

Too bad I haven’t viewed the videos yet. How about dial up ako, ang cheap ahhahahaa!!! But as soon as DSL is installed, iviview ko sila agaran ahhahah!!
