If you picked

Mostly A’s: Torpe

It takes a lot out of you to ask someone out or accept an invite to dinner, so you never dive in. You’re cautious and calculated with your moves, so your friends know that someone is special when you go out with them.


Don’t worry so much about first impressions and making something out of what could be nothing. You never know until you try—so just try. 




Mostly B’s: Your Universe

There was someone in your life that you thought the world of and just understood all the parts of you without needing an explanation.


It’s time to stop looking for that same connection in other people. Just let things happen naturally and you might even chance upon something better.




Mostly C’s: Hindi Na Babalik

You remember what it was like to be in love and you hold that part of your life close to your heart. But you’re satisfied with your life right now and have gotten past the hurt and disappointment.


You’re more cautious with your heart now, but just be mindful of how cautious you are—don’t close yourself off because of past mistakes. 




Mostly D’s: Tadhana

There’s someone in your past that you once gave everything to, but it still wasn’t enough for whatever reason. You still think about them from time to time, but you have accepted the fact that things are over.


You wonder when you’ll ever put yourself out like that again, but don’t worry. Someone will come along and you won’t have to force anything with them. 




Mostly E’s: Tulog Na

You love being in love and you never stray away from a possible relationship. Having someone in your arms gives you comfort like nothing else.


Just don’t spread yourself out too thin, you might mistake chemistry for boredom.
