It makes me so happy to bring new couples together. And in that moment, when I see them discover each other all over again, there isn't the slightest degree of sadness that I've never been in love, although I thought I was, on two different occasions.
My girlfriend described it correctly.
"you were at that age," she states gravely, then smiles.
Hey, that's my line, I'm the sagacious one.
I kid. :>
But seriously, I've been bringing people together since I was in school. It's just so 'awww!'
Yes, yes, even though I toss around the f's and b's and act all devil-may-care, I am something of a romantic, right Calvin? ;D
I've brought straight and gay couples together, even brought husbands and wives closer; taught husbands how to be more loving after 13 years of marriage, taught wives how to spice things up for their tired husbands.
For, at the very end of our lives, when we think of the good times while we journeyed, we think of companionship. Right Mr. Holmes?
That is all we really want, is it not? To feel good on the inside..not so much successful and prosperous, just..loved?
It's not common in India to be 28 and unmarried, even unattached.
Society expects me to have somebody, even a boyfriend at the very least (yes, India, is starting to grow up ;p)
Some of my male friends ask me:
"why you want to be alone?", "why not at least try to be with someone?"
I look at them and go "whaaaaaat? What you talkin' 'bout? (like Arnold from Different Strokes :D )
It's not that I don't want a relationship. I just haven't found Mr. Reyab Naserah. Maybe it's okay for others to settle in and make peace with their situations. That is, fingers crossed, never, going to be me.
Maybe, at some point of time, I'll get together with a friend and we'll see what happens from there. As of right now, I don't really care. I might, this evening, when the mood swings make a comeback but right now, it's 10:28 a.m. and the day is still young.
So when bridge be coming, I be crossing. For now, I posting.
