This is my interpretation, helpful views are very appreciated. Recently, words from a friend made me ponder [very very seriously, sampai tak lalu makan, sampai tak lena tidoq, sampai mimpi] and urged my brain to do some homework; having boys as friend. I searched and read some posts and articles regarding this issue. A guy and a girl; could stay as just friend, yet having high potential to turn out to be more than just friend. Not a-shocking-fact-o, yet many of us think that we could survive as just friend. Receiving good-morning-text everyday, happy calls, having high tendency to share life stories; you starting to adapt his life schedule, talking crappies, reminiscing happy moments together, taking pictures together and smiling to yourself and to your mobile phone [dok senyum-senyum kat henpon tiga-tiga sekupang tu]; are signs that we might cross the border of friendship. [Oh nooo~ but I know that I am managing myself to not falling to coupling zone. Couple tu kan haram.] Okay, good news is; alhamdulillah, we still have pure heart that make us realized what's good and what's not. Now lets reflect ourselves; what do we want from the relationship? If friendship, these are five important things we have to care of and I always... always remind myself about intention [if the intention of being friend with guys is for work or discussion, once done with all those things, then there's no more meetings and stuff]. If we're up for a serious relationship; stop collecting sins from the vain sweet charades and promises [atau mungkin terjerat dengan kisah islamic couple], improve ourselves [benda basic like... solat cukup tak? awal waktu ke tak? recite Quran hari2 tak? pastu ada rasa tanggungjawab nak berdikari ataupon masih bergantung kat mak ayah? :)], once dah mampu; start planning for the marriage and doa'. To me, friendship should not be something that burden our dear heart. If we start to feel pain or anxious, then we might be doing something wrong or perhaps, the friendship had goes wrong. Another thing is; I believe, to befriend is not to own, not to change, but together we develop ourselves to be better. Boyfriend? It's complicated. I wanna live happy life; eat ice cream with chocolate chips, lotsa mochi and strawberries! not living the complicated one.. ameen :D.
