Ok, so I have to say I’m fuckin’ tired of hearing my friend wanting to get married, yet she says that it’s a taboo to talk to guys on a personal level.
Are you fucking kidding me??
Ok, let me dissect her narrow views in social relationships. I understand she’s an extremely religious person and would die before having a boyfriend/girlfriend type of relationship, however, she NEEDS to be able to talk to guys and deciding for herself whether they’d be husband material or not, and the first damn step to that is actually becoming friends with guys, since that’s the best way to get to know someone.
She keeps having old men or creepy unstable guys asking for her hand in marriage, and then she complains.
Ummm… duh. Arranged marriage these days are a sign of desperation and being unable to find someone, it’s kind of like going on a dating website – except in dating websites you are able to get to know the person way more before deciding to freakin’ marry them.
Also, what sane young guy would want to do arranged marriages???
1.Most of them already have girlfriends they plan on being with and don’t need mommy to hook them up with a bride who sits at home waiting to be called by the ‘perfect’ guy.
2. They end up falling for their friend who goes to university with them, or works at their job place, and then the guy ends up calling her family to ask to marry her
Notice that both include communication and friendship between both guy and girl???
If you don’t notice, good luck staying unmarried at your family’s house for the rest of your life, maybe start up a knitting business or something.
If you plan on sitting around to have someone amazing call and ask for your hand in marriage, while you don’t even talk to guys, or befriend them or even show what an awesome person you are – who the fuck are you expecting to call?? Your imaginary friend from kindergarten or something???
Seriously, grow up and open your brain (if you are close-minded) the world didn’t end 50 years ago, you know.
