It’s our favorite time of the year—that’s aside from Christmas and the FHM 100 Sexiest Victory Party; okay, it’s our THIRD favorite time of the year! But who’s counting, right? What’s more important is it’s now February. The love month. The okay-lang-magwaldas-para-sa-date month. The only month men are allowed to be ultra-cheesy.
But do you have any idea HOW to be cheesy? Are you and your lady constantly bickering about your lack of romance? Do you attribute your singlehood to your lack of wooing skills? Well, we’re going to solve these all for you! FHM will be dishing out daily how-to-be-a-Don-Romantiko tips the whole month of February!
You probably noticed the long lines at the cinemas over the weekend and the non-stop chatter on social media about Cinema One Originals’ That Thing Called Tadhana. We here at FHM HQ also did, especially considering that FHM cover girl Angelica Panganiban topbills the film.

And you’re also probably asking “Why the hell would you guys want to watch a Pinoy rom-com?!” Hey, why the hell not if it'll merit you more pogi points. So stop getting diyahe. After all, the film is also dubbed the “Ultimate Hugot” film of the year, so you know it's awesome.

It talks about real life, gut-wrenching, alcohol-inducing breakups, and moving on. The punchlines are true to life, you’d actually think they were talking about what you went through (or dare we say, currently going through). If we haven’t piqued your interest enough, here are ten more reasons why you should bring your girlfriend to the cinemas tonight to watch this rom-com.
You're welcome, loverboys!
It's a good place to MOMOL with your girl
Who knows, you might even get luckier tonight because you took her to watch a chick flick that starred her crushes JM de Guzman and Joem Bascon. Besides, with all the feels in the movie, thanks to Angelica's awesome performance, you might want to ready your akbay-sabay-kiss moves in the dark to comfort her.
On second thought, just go get a room.
It will help you show that your sensitive side really do exists
Who knows, maybe she'll find your soft side cute and give you a nice, warm cuddle after the movie. But take note: Don't start sobbing before she does–no, wait, don't sob at all!
It'll make her smile after her stressful day in the office
Since you happen to be the best boyfriend/husband she’s ever had, it’s sort of your obligation to make sure she’s happy 24/7. Not only will watching this movie make your girlfriend giddy, it'll also tickle her funny bone with all its amusing lines. And you know what they say, a happy girlfriend/wife makes for a happy life.
She's wanted to watch it since last year, but you weren't sure about it
Well, now you are!
Make it up to her by surprising her and watch the film before it gets pulled again. You might want to buy tickets now, though, since it's slated to show in a very limited time only.
It’s a good excuse to go out on a week day—no matter how tired you are
If you didn’t get to see each other over the weekend, make up for lost time by taking your girl out for dinner and a movie tonight. Ditch the popcorn and be ready to hold her hand or cuddle with her the entire time. She won’t let go of you for sure.
It will show your girl that you're in it for the long haul
...and won’t even so much as think of cheating on her and making her feel as hurt as Mace (Angelica) was in the movie. You’re simply the perfect gentleman she will want to spend every single day with.
It will show her that you're okay (sometimes) with her choice of entertainment
...as long as you get to watch them with her every single time. Now, ain't that sweet? #Tamis
It’s a feel-good movie that'll remind you both why you're together
Even after eight months or eight years, That Thing will give you a good idea how you can both look forward to the great future ahead.
You get to ogle at Angelica at her cutest
...and your girl won't even notice or get mad at you for it. Good plan, bro!
It will help you break up with her
You don’t want to look like an ass, so you do it as subtly as possible: Whisper “I want to break up with you” while she ogles at JM de Guzman as he takes off his shirt. Let’s just hope she gets the drift before the end of the movie. Otherwise, there’d be hell to pay when you still have to explain your intentions for making her watch the film. Good luck on that one, you asshole.
