Puzzler! This is one mystery I could never solve, despite the screen name Sherlock Holmes! 😉 At what age do girls select their life partners? Or should I say boy friends, because I witnessed 1001 cases (am exaggerating of course) where girls married their parent’s choice (or that’s what they told me!) and not the the one they’ve been going out with.
Any girl I see now is either married, engaged or committed in a serious relationship. And of the few girls who claim to be “single” are out of reach for various reasons. Some want to study further, some concentrate on career and some simply wait for their parents to look for an eligible bachelor. No one can be blamed but that is the situation.
Schooling was too young an age to lookout for one. Crushes apart, no thought of any serious relationship. 10+2 was a new world, most of the time was invested in thinking about future. Countless dreams and aspirations for life. Graduation was more fascinating but computers and semesters’ exams ate up all the time. After some so-called market research and lot of confusion, then started ‘the career’. Busy in learning stuff as what was taught in school/ college was to be unlearned to learn new things to do the job. Training, professionalism, payslips, EMIs, corporate culture, team dynamics, team meetings, PFs, IT Returns, increments, appraisals, team outings, formal dinners, night shifts, all new friends circle, wait for weekends, weekend blasts, ATM/ Debit/ Credit card life are to name a few.
To enter the next phase of life, I realize I should probably have invested some time all the while checking out girls, I mean, looking out for girls 😉
And I love to talk philosophy when cornered like this: May be there is someone destined for everyone. So, I’ll wait for mine! 😉
