Date a girl who rides the MRT daily. Date a girl whose basic necessity is a Stored Value Card, and not a cup of Starbucks coffee. Date a girl who rides the MRT every day. You’ll be amazed with what she’s capable of. She can do her full make up amid the wobbly ride. She can even sleep — standing up.
When she says she’ll be there in an hour, wait for her. She’s doing everything she can to be there. If she feels hopeless, she’ll blindly take the first train and step into the sweaty, rowdy coach filled with men. There, she knows she’ll be squeezed and pushed and shoved. But she told you she’ll be there in an hour; she’ll keep her vow.
Date a girl who rides the MRT. She is strong. She makes her own choices; she takes risks. She thinks of possibilities. She knows how to keep herself entertained, she knows how to keep herself sane. She wouldn’t mind standing the whole ride, just don’t try to provoke her. She will not make you cry, but she can make it your worst MRT ride.
She can wait for hours, but she can’t wait forever. She knows when to stop, and she’s firm with her choice. She knows when to let go. She knows when to say no.
She smiles, no matter what. She whines, but who does not? She sometimes curses, so what? She endures this every day, and still manages to say. “I’ll be there in an hour.” She always makes a way.
When you find a girl who regularly rides the train, don’t let her go. Listen to her stories. The next time you go out on a date, ride the train with her. Spend good memories there. Let her keep happy thoughts inside the train.
But whenever you can, drive her home. I swear, she will love you more.
Date a girl who rides the MRT, I tell you.
She fights a battle every single day just to be with you.
And she can live without you.
