I am reposting some of the blogspot posts I’ve had written some / a long time back. This one was written July 25, 2011. You can find the others at http://www.poachedhens.blogspot.com ( though I really cannot come up with a reason why you should.)
I am not desperate for a marriage. Not even close. But I wish there was someone to who I could sing “un paarvaiyil or aayiram kavidhai naan yezhudhuvaen… ” and actually mean the words. I wish there was someone who would write Song of Mr.Perfect over me. Yeah, like the Song of Solomon, but a bit less explicit, perhaps.
Oh I wish there was a wishing well so I could wish all these wishes. *Dear Lord! Did i just write THAT?*
Come on, I am 23, and single, and looking. But maybe I am only allowed to be 23 and single. Maybe the looking part is not meant for me to do. And maybe I should shut up about the whole thing. I mean, my best friends are still single. (That could mean my friends are losers like me, but I shall stick to the point). But they don’t go to such desperate depths of blowing their noses on a blogpost about their singletude.
Yeah, so what if most of my college juniors are committed, or the people I’ve mentally noted as “will never find a guy in this lifetime” are hanging out with Rob Pattinson look alikes? I don’t care. Maybe like Chit often tells me, I am a spring shut up.. a fountain sealed. God knows my address and my phone number and if He wants to hear me sing love songs to someone, He himself will send to me the you ofLay my love on you. If God had badly wanted to see my relationship status on Facebook as ‘in a relationship’, He’d have got me a job with some matrimonial site’s web development team, not with this morbid office where I don’t like anyone. (The converse of which also holds perfectly true)
So, someday when the prince is supposed to come on his snow white horse, he will. And till then, I am going to shut my mouth, and hold my horses… and maybe not listen to MWS.
