428. FORGIVE ME WHILE I HAVE A PETTY MOMENT


“They” are fond of saying “when you fall off your bike, you should get back on”. But I don’t know – I am on the matrimonial site surfing through profiles and I feel flat and emotional-less. I have hit the point where training wheels won’t help. What is more annoying is that the desi dudes have all blended into one tan-medium-weight-average-height-engi-cardio-finance-college-educated-resides-somewhere-in-the-US-but-no-where-near-me.

I don’t scare easily. And I don’t back down from a challenge. I don’t fights the way I used to – perhaps I am maturing. But, sigh; I don’t know what this sluggish feeling is that I am feeling. I step away from the computer and stare out the window. I get back to the computer and log off the matrimonial site. I feel petty and decide to forward the email thread between Flyboy and me to Meera. I need some validation. Correction, some more validation.

Email to: Meera
Email from: Desi Girl
Subject:  Flyboy's Profile

This guy Flyboy is the one who said my photos were not nice. These are his new photos. Who starts their profile out with "tall"? That is the most important thing? LORD.

Excerpt from profile:  Tall, ambitious, progressive man with an adventurous spirit and generous soul. Close friends describe me creative, warm…

What a loser.... He was successful in being mean. That’s it. And trust me if your photos were not nice – I would have told you!

He is a wad of idiotness wrapped in insecurity repackaging himself as together. To your point, yes, he was successful in being mean. And you were right, if my snaps were not nice you would have had me change them years ago! He is a LOSER.

Hhhmm. Okay – yes being petty makes me feel better. I mean if he can call me ugly, I can call him a loser. Next. I mean - should I dare to desi date again!

I believe in destiny and destiny isn't gonna speed up just because you want it to. Sigh. But when its right it'll all fall into place. Don't give up!

I read the title really quickly and thought you said "Forgive My Pretty Moment" and I thought - of course, and I hope you have millions of pretty moments :)

Dear Milly -

You CRACK me up - I should have been more diligent in keeping the profiles :)

Dear Falling Up -

I agree with you 100% - destiny is going at the speed of destiny. I am not giving up - I just have petty moments of defeat. I generally pep back up!

It's a bit confusing- the email headings seem off. Can you check that DG? (Just a little editing)

Next time, instead of starting his profile with "tall" he can say "I define myself with one word: Dork."

Dear Anonymous -

No - I mean to write PETTY - since I resorted to name calling in the post - think it needs a diff title? Happy to change it - let me know .... another reader thought it meant to be pretty - let me see about renaming it now. You are the 2nd one to say "what?!" :)

Thanks!
