The incisive, and often funny, Limpbwizit has devised a utile taxonomy of Manila coeds. Here's how he compares the maroon girl from UP versus the blue girl from Ateneo:
but the most distinguishing quality of a blue girl is her taste. a "regular" blue girl wants a goody-goody boy, well-bred, well-groomed, and all. a "regular" maroon girl goes for the maginoo pero bastos type and the usual UP campus heartthrob would probably be an ateneo loser or weirdo. an average blue girlfriend is therefore the regular leading lady in an action movie - supportive of her man and prettier than her boyfriend. an average maroon girlfriend is not usually like that. she could be more handsome than her boyfriend and she performs so many roles - she could be a drinking buddy, a competitive rival in so many things, a sugar mommy, or a prison warden.
The blue girl may have better taste, but, according to Limpbwizit, the archerette from La Salle is the best girlfriend:
...being taken does not cause her to become losyang and she's the kind who wants to look beautiful for her boyfriend coz that, probably, is her only source of pride and joy so that if a guy and an archerette break up, she'll blame the pimple on her cheek, a five-pound weight gain, or the eyebag that she failed to conceal. so the guy who breaks up with her is acquitted of any crime coz the sole culprit is either the pimple, the eyebag, or the unwanted weight increase.
