Vice Ganda weighs in on how “friendly” chatting can ruin relationships

May. 14, 19 | 1:52 pm

Kapamilya comedian Vice Ganda aired his opinions on how a seemingly harmless and friendly way of chatting with other people online can ruin a relationship.

As seen in a previous episode of ABS-CBN’s noontime gig, “It’s Showtime”, Vice Ganda warned netizens who are in a relationship to be responsible when using online messaging applications.

It all started when a contestant on the show said that his girlfriend broke up with him after he talked to a lot of women via online messaging apps.

The contestant defended that his ex-girlfriend was the jealous type and that he only had “friendly” conversations with the women who hit up on him online.

Vice Ganda then said that being “friendly” online has been an overused excuse that people no longer believe it.

“Magprangkahan na tayo, kaya kayo nagsimula mag-chat doon kasi tri-nay mo na baka yun, majojowa mo or magka something kayo. Eh, nagkaroon na ng girlfriend, so nun nagkaroon ka ng girlfriend, dapat stop na yung chat at ang pakikipaglandian,” Vice Ganda said.

Vice Ganda then said a person can talk to their real-life friends online because that’s normal.

“Pero alam mo don kung sino yung mga ka-chat mong tropa mo talaga at yung ka-chat mong kalandian mo,” he added.

Vice Ganda also said that even a simple “Kumain ka na ba?” can be flirtatious.

“Yung mga nagcha-chat ng ‘kain ka na?’, bakit kailangang mong pakainin at kailangan alamin kung kumain na? ‘Yung nanay mo ba, natanong mo na kung kumain na?” Vice Ganda said.

Vice Ganda also left a message to those who ruined their relationships by chatting with other people.

“Kaya wag kayong umarteng nasasaktan kayo kung sa katotohanan nakipaglandian naman talaga kayo,” Vice Ganda said.
