Inspired by similar boyfriend-for-rent schemes in other countries, many Filipinos also created their own version of this viral scheme. One good example is the version of the Chinese-Filipino model, Agassi Ching, who went viral because of his “Chinese Boyfriend for Rent” post.
Just recently, another version of this viral scheme has circulated on the Internet when a handsome guy named Manuel Garcia offers a new deal, instead of the usual ‘boyfriend for rent’ he has decided to go against the trend by offering study date package wherein flirting is not allowed.
In his Facebook post, Manuel Garcia wrote,
“Sa mga SINGLE na walang ka-date… TEACHER FOR HIRE this Valentine’s Day (Aral na lang tayo kesa landi)”
But it’s not a big surprise if his students would still pick him as an excellent boyfriend for hire material because of his good looks and interesting qualities.
In fact, he also included “Reasons to choose me” in the post that appears quite serious.
Check it out:
Passed the board exam (Professional Licensed Teacher)
Has a master’s degree (Master in Information Technology)
Knowledgeable when it comes to web development, graphic design, computer programming and more.
Obeys the Section 3 of the Anti-Sxual Harassment Act of 1995 that forbids the relationship between students and professors.
He also offers four hilarious study packages that include the following details:
“The STRICT Teacher package” at Php500 per hour.
“Seryoso magturo, mas seryoso sa jowa mo. Sisiguraduhing matututo ka kahit gaano kahirap yung lesson at matatapos ang klase nang punong-punop ka ng kaalaman. Kung hindi mo pa nararansan na magseryoso ka, bagay sayo to. Medyo boring nga lang!”
The handsome guy will make sure the one who hires him will learn a lot from their lesson, but he also mentioned that the study date might be somewhat boring.
“The COMEDIAN Teacher Package” at Php400 per hour.
“Idadaan sa katatawanan kahit gaano kaseryoso ang topic. Siguradong tatawa ka kahit na may dinaramdam ka kaya bagay to sa mga broken hearted. Tatawa ka ng tatawa hanggang sa makalimutan mo yung pinagdadanan mo.. at yung lesson.”
He promised that his student will be entertained and will surely laugh throughout the study date; although that might mean the lesson will be forgotten.
“The MMK Teacher Package” at Php800 per hour.
“Mauubos ang oras na wala tayong pag-uusapan kundi yung mga masasakit na pinagdaanan natin sa buhay. Kung paano tayo niloko at sinasaktan ng mga tao na minahal natin. At kapag malapit na matapos yung oras, babalik tayo bigla sa lesson.”
In this package, Manuel and his date are supposed to talk about their failed past romances and how their exes betrayed and hurt them.
“The HUGOT Teacher Package” at Php600 per hour.
“Lahat ng lesson may hugot; original at on-the-spot. Hindi pa tayo nakakapunta sa next slide, may hugot na naman. Sa una makakarelate ka pero magsasawa ka din kasi mauumay ka. Kaya mas pipiliin mo na lang na mag move on kesa marinig yung hugot.”
Manuel promise to ensure there will be so much “hugot line” in this ‘study package’. So, at the end of the lesson, the student would choose to simply move on instead of hearing yet another corny “hugot line”.
In the last part his post he also declared:
“BAWAL LANDIAN, ARAL LANG TAYO! This is not boyfriend for hire.”
Many people find this post hilarious, while a number of aspiring clients wished that this post was for real.
