My failed attempt at using a gay dating app....

photo from pinknews.co.uk

While I was having dinner with a friend at her condo last Saturday night, and after hearing "my story", she told me to download this gay dating app and give it a try.

And then I was like, "Ummm....no. That app is only for those who are looking for hook ups and sex. I wanna preserve my virginity for the right guy (LOL)."

"Who are you....the VinVin Mary?", she said.

"Uhmmm...yes. Worship me now."

To cut the long story short, I still downloaded the app when I got home that night (LOL again). I uploaded some photos and put very little information about me. I browsed at some of the guys' profiles and "liked" some of them. Probably around 4 or 5. And then I got bored.

The following day, around yesterday afternoon, I opened the app again and I found out that I received 3 messages from 3 different users.

1st message: "Hi! You're VinVin the blogger, right!? OMG I had been following your blog ever since I was in high school! You like bags, right? Because I'm selling Coach bags. 😊"

Ok so first, he made me feel old. Second, fudge, it's not a good idea to put your real name as an alias for dating apps like this. 😂😂😂 Third, if I wanted to buy a bag, I should've just used OLX or Carousell. 😒😒😒

My response: "Hi! No. Sorry. I'm just a poseur." 😂😂😂

2nd message: "Hi Sir, massage po."

Ok so first, he called me a "Sir." A SIR!!! I was wearing an off-shoulder top in my photo and yet he called me a SIR (LOL). And second, like...the F?! If I wanted a massage, I would've just gone to The Spa with my Tita Rachel Pena.

My response: None. Message deleted.

3rd message: "Top or bottom? My place."

HORRORS!!! My world shattered. I felt so violated. LOL. NO. NO. NO. I'm the VinVin Mary and I'm reserving my virginity and first true love kiss for the right guy even if I'm already turning 30 years old this year. And this guy doesn't even have a photo showing his face. Just a topless photo of a headless guy. How scary is that?

My response: None. Message deleted.

I also uninstalled the app last night and just watched "Barcelona A Love Untold" on Cinema One. And then I cried while Kathryn Bernando was telling Daniel Padilla this line:

"You don’t have to. ’Wag mo akong mahalin dahil mahal kita. Mahalin mo ako dahil mo ‘ko because that is the love I deserve." 😭😭😭

Ewan McGregor's directorial debut “AMERICAN PASTORAL” exclusive at Ayala Malls Cinemas


Two-time Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor stars and debuts as a director in the deeply affecting father-daughter story “American Pastoral” based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Philip Roth that chronicles the profound changes in the last half-century of American life. The adaptation focuses in on the Swede’s search for his daughter and the resonant themes of uncertainty, shifting fates, family and loss, that took the filmmakers nearly thirteen years to bring to the screen.

“American Pastoral” follows a family’s idyllic existence that was shattered by social and political turmoil that will change the fabric of American culture forever. Ewan McGregor makes his directorial debut and stars as Seymour “Swede” Levov, a once legendary high school athlete who is now a successful businessman married to Dawn (Jennifer Connelly), a former beauty queen. But turmoil brews beneath the polished veneer of Swede’s life. When his beloved daughter, Merry (Dakota Fanning), disappears after being accused of committing a violent act, Swede dedicates himself to finding her and reuniting his family. What he discovers shakes him to the core, forcing him to look beneath the surface and confront the chaos that is shaping the modern world around him.

Lakeshore Entertainment producer Gary Lucchesi reflects on what drove him to stay on course throughout the long but steadfast creative process: “I have always wanted to make a father daughter story. I read the script, I cried, and I knew I had to make the movie one way or another,” he recalls. “I saw in it the story of a man who has an uncompromising love for his daughter through thick and thin. I love dramas about human beings that you can relate to and experiences that you can imagine. That’s what really turns me on as a filmmaker. Every now and then, you get a chance to do something like this that you covet—so you give it everything you have.”

Ewan McGregor, known for his wide-ranging roles in films spanning from the innovative and edgy “Trainspotting 1 & 2”, “Velvet Goldmine” and “Moulin Rouge” to the acclaimed dramas “Ghost Writer” and “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” -- was attached to play the central character of the Swede in American Pastoral long before signing on to direct the film.

McGregor knew this was a rare opportunity. Ultimately, it was his love of the material that led to his decision to take a leap into his feature film directorial debut. “I was very moved by the script and I was completely taken by the Swede and the study of father daughter relationships,” he says. “I’ve always wanted to direct, but I didn’t want to just direct for the sake of it. I wanted to have a story that I was compelled to tell,” McGregor explains.

An Ayala Malls Cinemas’ exclusive presentation, “American Pastoral” opens on April 5 at Glorietta 4 and Trinoma cinemas.

Who is that "gay" I see staring straight back at me...?

Why is my reflection someone I don't know?

Must I pretend that I'm someone else for all time?

When will my reflection show...who I am inside?
