1.The Chuy Guy
Natural habitat: Ayala, IT Park (away from the usual crowded spots mind you), Banilad
He’s that dude who looks so humot. And you won’t be surprised if he actually is. He’s the one who’s been driving daddy’s Fortuner since before people his age got licenses. His winks send girls reeling over, and he’s always got one pretty girl tucked under his arm. In other words, he is most likely out of your league. But darn, he sure looks dapper in those Sperry shoes.
2. The Chuy-chuy Guy
Natural Habitat: Where they think is cool
He’s the kind of guy who tries to be the chuy guy, but ends up being just the chuy-chuy guy. Almost, but not really. Go figure.
Natural Habitat: Where the other shofus are
The Shofu has perfect style. He has nice taste in movies. He gets why you like Katy Perry. And he likes other Shofu guys too.
Natural Habitat: Their tindahan sa downtown
Accounting 101 emergency? Solicitations to pass your NSTP class? Needing a wholesale supplier for loombands, laundry detergents, siomai sa tisa and whatnot? The Insik is your go-to guy for everything business. He most likely went to a Chinese school (duh) and actually knows how to speak badass Mandarin. His financial savvy is impressive but also, he’s so cute especially when he smiles because his eyes almost disappear (and you mean that in the most non-racist, adorable way). You already know that you won’t work out. He’s probably going out with a cute chinita already.
5. The Nerd
Natural Habitat: National bookstore, GOLS internetan, your school libraries
He may or may not be known as DarkMaster_845 online but his thick eyeglasses are a tell-tale sign that The Nerd spends a lot of time either gaming or reading books. The guy is on first name basis with Tolkien, Rowling and (George) RR Martin. You like having study dates at the library or at some quiet café where you silently work on stuff. But you’re one of those girls who think “If you can’t give up DOTA it’s not true love” and get tired of fetching him from GOLS so you break up.
6. The Boy From Far-Far-Away
Natural Habitat: Far, far away
He’s not Shrek, dummy. He’s the boy from those far-off places like Alegria or Moalboal or Daanbantayan. His singsong accent is adorable. He’s an honest-to-goodness gentleman who you had to orient to the jeepney codes (17C, 14D, 01k) so that he won’t get lost. But he doesn’t believe in LDR and in long trips in the Ceres bus so. Yeah. Mao na sya.
7.The Skater Dude
Natural Habitat: The streets, skate parks, under the Marcelo Fernan Bridge—-they’re nomads
Ah, the skater guy. One day you were walking down Escario when you see him pass by, riding on his skateboard, his dishevelled hair caught in the wind and bam—-it was love at first ollie. He’s carefree and his tricks make your heart do some nasty kickflips. Sadly, your romance was short lived since your coordination sucks and your last date cost you a broken wrist and a trip to the ER.
8. The Bad Guy
Natural Habitat: Ugh, places.
The Bad Guy is aka Aw Olark Guy, which, in bayot language means, Wa’y Klaro Guy. You get the drift. He’s the guy you can’t trust, the guy who leaves you hanging. Enough said.
9.The Good Guy
Natural Habitat: Places with good lighting and non-alcoholic beverages.
The Good Guy is the polar opposite of the bad guy. He’s the guy to take home to mama. He’s an endangered species who actually cares about curfew and not drinking while driving. But he has other priorities in life, like finishing medicine or law school. So yeah. You don’t get to take him home to mama.
Natural Habitat: Imung heart (lels)
Well,he’s…it. The one who makes you feel on top of the world even if you’re just sharing a ginabot and a Sparkle. The guy who’s custom-made for you. He’s all you’ve ever wanted plus pakapin. You may or may not have found him yet but when you do, you’ll know. J
