Here's What Might Have Happened If José Rizal Had Tinder
"I'm a lover. Of my country. Also of women."
It's no secret that the Philippines' national hero was a little too popular with the girls wherever he went.
So if they had Tinder in his time, he'd probably download it immediately. And his profile would look something like this:
He'd swipe right to all the ~apples of his eyes~...
...and he'd realize it's more convenient than writing letters.
At first he'd be awkward. As awkward as he felt whenever he's around his first love, Segunda Katigbak:
He'd make a few mistakes...
...but he'd soon be killin' it. As he does with everything else.
He'd match almost everyone, including Belgian girl Suzanne, who became *kinda* obsessed with him.
And Nellie Boustead, whom Antonio Luna was persuading but only had eyes for José.
And Adelina, Nellie's sister. This girl, he liked, but ~religious beliefs~ got in the way so...
Which he probably deserved, given that he led on quite a number of women, including Gertrude Beckett:
Rizal was known to play pranks on his wife, Josephine Bracken. So instead of a flirtatious convo, theirs would probably look like this:
And his some of his humor would probably rub on her too, at some point.
Have a meaningful Rizal Day, Philippines!
And stay breezy like José. 😉
