the match-makers….

This is one of the most talked about topic in my life!oh! wait not just my life…i guess in most of my friend’s lives too!!! MARRIAGE!! 😥
I guess it’s those phases in life that when its starts…till you just dnt give into the pressure it jus doesn stop!

The moment a girl steps outta college..her parent’s are worried that she might just find herself someone who is hmmm..well not the rite person and screw up the rest of her life..hence they set themselves and everyone else on the MAN Hunt.. oops…;) i mean the groom Hunt! 🙂

but while the hunt begins these are some of the interesting things ( read as very annoying ) that i came across..which some of you all might agree…and some might not!

1.Every proposal that comes or every boy ur parents meet is a “nice boy” and an “eligible bachelor”
2. What if he is not al that “hep”, but his family is too good…one of those ancient families
3. suddenly your parents would want to meet your girlfriend’s parents and wants you to attend all their weddings..hoping that u manage to find nice men there!
4. This is one is classic! They bring you weird proposals from boy’s whose names r ‘Romeo’, imagine being married to someone like tht…i mean like what do u expect me to do…cut all my relations with my friends and live with the ridicule for the rest of my life!?
5. N then comes famous line all parents give their children…”we hardly knew each other when we got married..i m sure you will like him once you get married!” n like what am i to do if i dnt?!! :-/
6. sudenly people you have never seen in your life..will land up at ur doorsteps..all proclaiming to be some relative of urs!even their driver or other people give their valuable comments & bring u marriage proposals!
7.and when they insist you meet someone!they give u instructions on being the well behaved girl, its against the rules to talk more than 15 mins and if you exceed half an hour somebody from the family starts walking up & down ( u have no idea how excellent their non verbal communication can be) and if it’s one hour they think u have already planned ur future with that guy! what i fail to understand..is how the hell am i supposed to decide my future in 15 minutes!
8.Every b’day after 23..is a living nightmare!they jus remind u every year and all thru that u r getting old and nobody will marry u!ya rite, like all the men are gonna disappear or they ar all gonna turn saints! 😉
9.after they give up tryin to find u the perfect groom they give u the option to find ur self the man of ur choice…yayaya..i knw but wait even b4 i cna be happy a list follow “educated, well to do, mallu christian boy only!!!” bah!! there goes my hopes & dreams!
10. I cant think of a last reason tried really hard!:) well someday i’ll fill it in!
Not that i have anythin against anyone blissfully married or gettin married..it’s jus that i haven found someone who wouldn wanna make me rewrite these reasons..but let’s hope i do!
Till then happy reading… 😀 while i go home to attend my cousin’s wedding and deal with these above mentioned annoying reasons! 🙂

For those special friends……

Go ahead and read the forward below..and once u are done..do pass on the message to those special gang of friends…i m sure it will definately be chicken soup for the soul! 😀

A young wife sat on a sofa on a hot humid day, drinking iced tea and visiting her Mother. As they talked about life, about marriage, about the responsibilities of life and the obligations of adulthood, the mother clinked the ice cubes in her glass thoughtfully and turned a clear, sober glance upon her daughter. “Don’t forget your girlfriends,” she advised, swirling the tea leaves to the bottom of her glass. “They’ll be more important as you get older. No matter how much you love your husband, no matter how much you love the children you’ll have, you are still going to need girlfriends. Remember to go places with them now and then; do things with them. And remember that “girlfriends” are not only your friends, but your sisters, your daughters, and other relatives too. You’ll need other women. Women always do.”

“What a funny piece of advice,’ the young woman thought. “Haven’t I just gotten married? Haven’t I just joined the couple-world? I’m now a married woman, for goodness sake, a grownup, not a young girl who needs girlfriends! Surely my husband and the family we’ll start will be all I need to make my life worthwhile!” But she listened to her Mother; she kept contact with her girlfriends and made more each year. As the years tumbled by, one after another, she gradually came to understand that her Mom really knew what she was talking about. As time and nature work their changes and their mysteries upon a woman, girlfriends are the mainstays of her life.

After 50 years of living in this world, here is what I know about girlfriends:

Girlfriends bring you chicken curry when you need help.
Girlfriends keep your children and keep your secrets.
Girlfriends give advice when you ask for it. Sometimes you take it, sometimes you don’t.
Girlfriends don’t always tell you that you’re right, but they’re usually honest.
Girlfriends still love you, even when they don’t agree with your choices.
Girlfriends laugh with you, and you don’t need canned jokes to start the laughter.
Girlfriends pull you out of jams.
Girlfriends help you get out of bad relationships.
Girlfriends help you look for a new apartment, help you pack, and help you move.
Girlfriends will give a party for your son or daughter when they get married or have a baby, in whichever order that comes!
Girlfriends are there for you, in an instant and when the hard times come.
Girlfriends listen when you lose a job or a friend.
Girlfriends listen when your children break your heart.
Girlfriends listen when your parents’ minds and bodies fail.
Girlfriends support you when the men in your life let you down.
Girlfriends help you pick up the pieces when men pack up and go.
Girlfriends rejoice at what makes you happy, and are ready to go out and kill what makes you unhappy.
Times passes. Life happens. Distance separates. Children grow up. Love waxes and wanes. Hearts break. Careers end. Jobs come and go. Parents die. Colleagues forget favours. Men don’t call when they say they will.

BUT girlfriends are there, no matter how much time and how many miles are between you.
A girlfriend is never farther away than needing her can reach.
