Lonely hearts ride jeepney to find perfect match over Christmas

Christmas is just around the corner, but not every heart is overflowing with love. Some lonely singles feel that the supposed merry occasion only casts an emotional despair in their being. And their sadness intensifies amidst the holiday season, so does their desire to seek relief.

Some members of SMP (as in Samahan ng mga Malalamig ang Pasko) seem to be willing to do whatever it takes to find their perfect match—taking the hunt in a passenger jeepney in Metro Manila.

In a series of photos credited to a certain Aura Cabanting Orgaza, a number of young students are seen wearing and holding a note on a piece of paper with their names and contact numbers. Others gave their address, too. These youngsters are hoping that ‘The One’ would just be right across their seats or a head-turn away.

Murphy de Larra, one of the students identified in the viral post, took to Facebook to thank those who commented, saying, “Salamat sa mga nagka-interes, kahit hindi masyadong kita ang mukha ko.”

“Ma, pa, mahal ko kayo pero kailangan kong magkalove life,” he added.

Many netizens commented in jest that it could really be an effective way to finally find someone. One user said: “Ito na gagawin ko simula bukas ????,” while encouraging her friends to do the same, “Ganito na mga teh, sa jeep na tayo maghanap?.”

Others realized their strange relationship with time. A netizen said: “Yung napag-iiwanan na tayo ng henerasyon ?.”

In another photo, a girl has decided to post the name and contact details of her mother, with a disclaimer on the note saying: “Sa mama ko yan.”

While the Internet is going gaga over the post, social media users are divided about it. Some of them expressed concern on the security of the students in the photo. It is not clear whether the identity that they gave are real or not.

After the photo made the rounds online, Orgaza edited the caption of the post and added a disclaimer. She wrote: “This was just for fun. Di namin ini-expect na makakakuha ng maraming shares. Yung mga KJ jan, go get some life! ? Masyado kayong seryoso sa buhay. ??

As of this posting, the viral photos have garnered 18,133 shares with 14,000 likes and counting.
