‘Savage philosopher’: Ellen Adarna’s witty love advice trends on Twitter

People online are in love with Ellen Adarna right now after she dished out love advice via her Instagram stories on Saturday, January 2.

The former actress trended on Twitter on Sunday, January 3 for her words of wisdom, which many netizens described as savage but witty.

One netizen even called her the “savage philosopher” of 2021.

Among the love topics she tackled include why you shouldn’t wait for someone to reply to your messages, what to do if an ex keeps on messaging you, and why you shouldn’t snoop on your partner’s phone.

Ellen’s Instagram stories are mostly in Bisaya, but a few people online—including popular TV writer and author Noreen Capili—translated some of Ellen’s advice on her Twitter account.

One netizen asked Ellen, “What if ang tagal niya mag reply. Sign ba yun na hindi siya interested?”

Ellen’s answer, as translated by Capili: “Kung naghihintay ka lang ng reply, para kang asong nakaabang — Wala kang life?  Ako, di rin ako magri reply sa taong walang life.”

What should you do if your ex keeps on messaging you?

Ellen said: “O di ba, ang ganda mo. Ang ganda mo pero di ka nag-iiisip... Di mo na isip na i block siya? Ano ba yang cellphone mo, analog?”

As for whether it’s okay to snoop on your partner’s mobile phone, she said: “Yung mga ganyan, para sa mga pangit lang iyan, mga insecure at praning. Hindi ko napagdaanan iyan. Never.”

Maybe Ellen is, indeed, the savage philosopher of 2021. We wonder if she applied her own advice on her own love life?
