“Well, I saw a really cute guy in the bus this morning while coming to Ofiice. He is perfect for you”. I almost chocked on my food.
“WHAT???” Did I hear you right”.
“Yup, you did. Come on he is really cute and you will make a great couple. I dont know anything about him, but i’ll get his ID tomorrow, this way we can find out something else about him”
“Sorry , but I am really not inteested Sweetie. Can’t you see I am happy to be single.” We had this conversation while having lunch at the company cafeteria. I just dont understand why my married or committed friends are always trying to hook me up with strangers. It’s not like I am really old, I am just 25. Why is it so difficult to digest that I am happy without a boyfriend.I get so many “It’s hard to believe you are single” lines.
Even my best friend is trying to do the same thing.
“There is this really smart guy in my office who is looking out for a girl”
“So what? Should i try to fix the two of you. You can figure out if it works or not”
It’s not like I am averse to dating. I am not. But it has to be a gradual process, not someone else trying too hard to fix things up. It makes me feel awkward. I cannot do blind dates too. And finding a guy for yourself is difficult. I mean if I get a little interested in someone, most of the times it turns out that he is married or engaged.
I also get to hear a lot of,’If you start searching now, you’ll find someone in 2 years”. Why does it have to be this way? I do feel lonely sometimes, especially when you go to a get-together and it turns out that almost evreyone has turned up wiht their boyfriends or fiance’s or husbands. But I am not “Join a dating site” desperate. I know it will happen when it has to. But the thing that scares me the most is that I might have to go in for an arranged marraige if I dont find someone at the right time.
