FEU Secret Files: Student dumps poor, 'pathetic' boyfriend

A post on FEU Secret Files tells a story of a Far Eastern University student who dumped her "pathetic" boyfriend because he was poor.

FEU Manila Institute of Arts and Sciences (IAS) student Chloe, who said she doesn't care if people will call her names, claimed that she was a victim of "love is blind," a cliché or overused idiomatic expression which means "if you love someone, you cannot find any fault in that person."

In that situation, "feelings of love suppressed the activity of the areas of the brain that control critical thought," according to a study.

Chloe said she regrets to have dated a poor guy who cannot even afford to pay the fare or buy jewelries for her. She hated her penniless boyfriend and was so ashamed of him that she walked ahead of him whenever they were malling.

She described the four-month relationship as the "worst days" in her life.

After the split, Chloe said she got reunited with her ex-boyfriend who studies in FEU Makati. With a rich guy, she no longer needs to commute whenever there's coding, she said.

"My pathetic ex-boyfriend.

Iniwan ko siya kasi wala siyang pera. Call me gold digger, user or what ever derogatory words you know. Sinagot ko siya kasi nabiktima ako ng "love is blind" na hindi ko pinansin yung pagiging mahirap niya noon but now that I don't feel that "too much love" anymore, saka ko lang napansin na shet, I'm dating a poor guy. He can't even pay my pamasahe. Kapag kakain kami, nahihiya akong ipakita sa iba na nag aabot ako ng pera para sa sarili kong food. Kapag uutusan ko siyang bumili ng something kailangan ko pa siyang bayaran kasi wala raw siyang pamasahe. What the actual f*ck? Anong silbi mo? Kapag may celebrations, ang binibili lang ay yung mga pipitsuging alahas sa bangketa and I don't even wear those shits kasi nagkaka-rashes ako sa fake jewelries. Ang jologs pa minsan manamit. Mukhang probinsyano, minsan jejemon, duh! Kapag masa mall kami minsan inuunahan ko siya para lang kunwari hindi ko siya kasama. Sa white uniform niya lang siya mukhang matino.

Nakakapangsisi lang. Sana pala yung sinagot kong manliligaw ay yung mayaman at hindi siya. Sinagot ko nalang sana yung may car at yung nag iinsist pang bayaran yung mga pinamimili ko sa mall. Kung alam ko lang na pati ba naman sa pamasahe, KKB kami. B*llsh*t. I will never ever date a poor guy again. Sa ngayon, lumalabas na kami ulit ng ex kong mayaman na taga FEU Makati. Finally, hindi ko na kailangang mag commute ulit kapag coding ako kasi may susundo na sakin. Di kagaya nung isa, pinag-jeep ako at pinasiksik sa LRT. Sariling pera ko pa. Tumagal kami ng four months at nakakainis isipin. Worst days. Kainis."
