Advanced warnings!!

The lovers’ day is around the corner. For years I have been waiting for any damsel to profess her love for me. The wait has been happening on every 14th in the month of February. The only result has been disappointment. But every year I wake up with renewed vigour, knowing very well that it’s going to be the same result again.

A friend of mine married his college sweet-heart. They had known each other for some time. Overcoming the family opposition and religious differences, they got married to each other. I looked on with envy on seeing the ‘made for each other’ couple. I was sure all the lovey dovey is going to last for a life time.

A few days ago, she called me up to say they had a fight. It was over something a single guy like me would consider trivial- he started growing his hair. The common complaint for the duo was that the other one didn’t bother to understand him/her. I was dumbfounded. Even after all these years no ‘understanding’!

Well guys, if you think marrying someone you love/know will make your life romantic/easy to live, forget it. ‘Knowing’ each other starts only when you share a room, when you are closeted with in four walls. As OtienoHongo says, if you want to stay lovey dovey stay away from marriage.
So advanced V-day wishes for you and don’t tell me I didn’t warn you.

Off the topic- I picked up ‘Hiss’ and watched it last day. To be frank, I wasn’t expecting a world class movie, but at least a decent erotica. I was told the director was Hollywood. Then Mallika went around the world campaigning in very tiny clothes. What was churned out was a nightmare better forgotten.

Except for Irfan, the quality is nothing more than a B-Grade Indian flick. I don’t get why there is so much blood, and that too in shades of Orange at times. When the snake Goddess feels hungry, she has to eat people. So she opens her ear to listen out for the rapist and wife beaters. She swallows them in, after spitting out the extra fittings like shoes, clothes and mobile. She then goes to wild to digest the man and then again comes back to human habitation stark naked. The special effects which were claimed to be world class was forgetful.

The only two good things were Mallika walking around showing her buck naked butts. Yes guys, you heard it right. But don’t hope for much of a frontal view. She slithering up a lamp post is a stand out. Then there is Divya Dutta with her huge cleavage as usual.
I am planning to sue someone from Hiss for misleading.

I agree with you that you only know a person when you live with them. I am married, and I can vouch from experience. All this lovey dovey bit as shown excessively in movies stays in the movies. Remember, they are paid to behave that way :).

Jon...Feb 14th is over hyped. For those in love every day is V day.

And good luck.

I fully agree with Rachna on this issue. The sad thing is that so many people are suckered into thinking that is what life should be like and end up very disappointed when it turns out not to be so.

Oh, John long time since you posted on your favourite topic of girls and relationships. Well, love and marriage cannot be generalised. They differ from individual to individual. So each one has his/her own experience.

Joy always and oops, I forgot. Wish you the best atleast this year.

The courting period can be very misleading, just like the trailers and promos of movies. You get just the best part of the other during that phase. It is only when you have to share your whole life with the other person, do you get to know what the other person is really about! It's like a journey, with ups and downs, rights and lefts, with its share of potholes and speedbreakers and such else, which you need to traverse together hand-in-hand. If you are ready for the journey, take the plunge....best of luck!
