Tibs is a reader of this blog, and at first he caught my attention by sending me a reaaaalllly loooooong email. We’ve corresponded some, and it was a good exchange of sometimes wacky, sometimes serious, sometimes witty, sometimes insightful ideas. So I asked him if I can share it here in this blog. With some minor refinements, I am posting some excerpts of our (continuing) email conversation — under the Tiburcio Series. I thought this would appeal to some of you who are still not very comfortable with your sexuality. Feel free to comment in, I’m sure he’ll be following this too.
Hi, Migs, my name is Tibs, no not Tiburcio, just Tibs. [sorry Tibs, but I had to call this the Tiburcio Series — I really just had to. Hahahaha![ First, yes I’m a Pinoy based here in the Philippines, somewhere in Manila too, andâ€¦ errrâ€¦yes, I have just recently come to terms with my sexuality. Or have I really? He-he-he. Before I continue, let me tell you that I found your site through an email from a Yahoo group which I am (secretly) a member of. I’m sure you know that Tibs is just my codename. I wrote to you simply to tell you that I like the posts you have here in your site. Somehow we share the same passion for movies — and let me add, I do feel that you also have a wide variety of interests as I do. But you know what? My conscience is telling me to cut the chase and get to my point. So let me attempt to do just that. I mentioned that I have just recently come to terms with my sexuality. I have one bit of a problem though. A have a girlfriend, and we’ve been together for 5 and a half years.
What a good start. Abangan ang susunod na kabanata! (Watch our for the next installment.)
