Unfortunately I suffer from Lucy Van Pelt Syndrome (yes from Peanuts). While bossy and sassy, Lucy was savvy, a female entrepreneur with her own psychiatrist’s booth. She was also SOOOOO in love with Schroeder that she tolerated being constantly slighted no matter how long she sat at the edge of his piano. Like Lucy, I spent a life time selecting Schroeder, who ultimately rejected me.
This is why Meera’s belief, that it is better when the man initiates contact, has merit. It means something in my profile or photos appeals to him. Because he has risked being accepted he is more likely to work at engaging my interest. Despite how many times I get hurt, I can’t stop believing he is out there. So when I receive Indian Cowboy’s communication request, I am hopeful.
From his photos he has a head of Indian uncle hair. It is parted too far to the left and stretched over the dome of his head. He is not bald, but it looks like he tried to straighten his hair – do desi men to this? According to the profile posted by his brother, Indian Cowboy is tall, fair, and in good shape. He is an engineer who eats meat and doesn’t drink. His interests include working out and dance lessons. He is described as chivalrous and funny sounds nice after (Dillweed Post 33 and Mr. Mustachio Post 25). Normally I am suspicious of men who don’t post their profiles. I worry that they are not serious about the search, still under the influence of mummy-papa or shy --- these are NOT the men I wish to meet!
Indian Cowboy's brother’s admiration is evident from his eloquent writing. It is obvious their family is a loving one and this appeals to me. Equally important is that Indian Cowboy is well read and highly educated. As a little girl my mother taught me to respect education and honor Sarasvati, the patron goddess of knowledge. I knew not to touch my feet to paper. I was to treat books as an extension of the divine and that my mind was a gift from God. Since I very much want to meet a man who values family and education – I accept.
