Life Of Navin

Random Musings, Random Bullshit.


Afflicted By A Disease!!

Over the last few days, I have been afflicted with a strange illness. No no, its not the Swine flu!! But its just as serious!! Let's just call it the "why-am-I-still-single-please-get-me-a-girlfriend-quick" syndrome.You may think I'm joking, but believe me, I'm not!! This is serious stuff people!!

It all started off around a month ago, when a certain grade "A" muggu moron, asked out one of the nicest girls I know. Obviously my first reaction was "Hehe, this bum actually thinks he can go out with her...this is bound to be funny!!".

But I was wrong!! Not only did she say yes, but as the days went by, this guy actually managed to keep her happy, and many people actually accepted these two as a pair!! Now that got me completely bugged!!

Why?? Because in an Indian college, muggus are generally at the bottom of almost every pyramid you can think of, right from the people who can play soccer list, to the people to invite to that late night CS session list, to the most date-able lists!! But the very fact that this freak-of-nature managed to get hooked, while yours truly remained single just blew me out of my mind!!

The "accepted" Social Pyramid in college

I want to change my status in Social Networking sites to "committed"!! But here's the catch..... I first need to get committed to a girl. I call my current state a sickness, because I'm pretty sure this is just a temporary phase, and this miserable feeling of being single will go away soon..... Oh yeah, I'm sure!! But right now, all I want is someone whom I would be able to call my girlfriend (for real)!!

Now, studying at a college with an almost negligible female population (by female, I mean 'my type' of female), what sources do I have to get committed?? Well, not many really!! :(

I don't have the balls to just walk upto any girl and say ‘Hi! Have we met before??’ And practically speaking, it is simply impossible to talk to any girl out there on the street. We always hear of stories like - "You heard of X? He just found his love at the mall! And now they are dating ..." Believe me, these fantastic stories only take place in people's fantasies!!This leaves the option of a long distance relationship with one of of my schoolmates..... but somehow, the idea of not actually being close to 'her' nudges me away from this idea.

I don't want to go online onto some Orkut-like site and ask girls with nice display pics (which generally are not theirs) to "Make Fraandsheep" with me, because frankly, I'm not that cheap and will never fall down to that level!! {why on earth are you smiling??}

And most of the "offline" girls I know are all either taken (some even by these goddamned muggus), while others are blissfully single and ignorant of my condition!!

Most conversations I have with girls look more like interviews, with me portraying the role of the interviewer shooting out questions like: "How're you??" "What are you doing now??" "Met so-and-so recently??" and ofcourse the most popular showstopper "So what else??".......most conversations end within minutes of me popping this question!!

This is usually how things progress at my end. However, there have been exceptions!! And I'm seriously hoping that one of these "exceptions" works out in my favour!! Over the last week, four very interesting girls have given me their contact details....hopefully something clicks!!I have made blunders in the past, which have been totally successful in keeping me blissfully single till date!! Lets just hope that this time will be different!!

With that I leave you.......but before I go, here's the chorus of my current favourite track, Hey Juliet by LMNT
(Hey Juliet)
I think you're fine
You really blow my mind

Maybe someday,
you and me can run away

I just want you to know

I wanna be your Romeo

Hey Juliet

Sniff Sniff... No wonder I like this track!!

P.S. I'm pretty sure that atleast one of those girls-who-gave-me-their-contact-details will read this blog, read about my affliction (and the fact that I referred to them as "exceptions"), label me a despo, and then block my number... There, another blunder :( :(

You're still making changes to the post, and I already read the post. Now thats what you call good luck!

Anyway getting back to the topic, Don't worry re, you know that most of us in the gang are single (including the girls) and frankly wats the big deal with being "Commited"?

Hope you're back to ground level soon!

Avantika said...

Don't worry dude.. why the glum mood? Teri sapnon ki rani tujhe jaroor milegi!

PS.. If all else fails, I'm always there na??

Kaustubh said...

Ohh me too affected by this disease...suffering for past one year but like you too, i am on high on my hopes from getting cured!!!

Ishan said...

Man, you've hit the nail exactly on the head!

Same story down here in IISER-K! Also remember that in IISER the average Boy-to-girl ratio is 15:1!

So you can imagine my state!

Hope you succeed on your quest for love! :-)

hey navin, i was also in the some boat a few months ago. but tell me frankly, how many 'so called commited' ppl around u, including the 'i know whom' maggu, are really commited, huh? 95% r jus there for the sake of it. sometimes, i feel blessed and happy to be single. we all will find our soulmates when v r destined to(trustme, we will). so cheer-up!---or jus go to belgaum;-)

Suhanna said...

Scientist to Devdas? That was a transformation I'd never expected Navin to make!

Arey chill yaar...isme badi baat kya hai?

Goa mein ladkiyon ki kami to nahi hai na?

Anyway, if nothing else works out (including Avantika ;), then I'm next in line okay?)

Chill yaar!

navinpai said...

Frankly, I never expected to get so many responses to this post, which I thought was far too personal to be posted in the first place!!

@Faizan I hope so too!! :( :(

@Avantika and @Suhanna Thanks for being the best friends a guy could ever have!! The limits you two go to to see me happy are amazing!!

@Kaustubh If you get cured, please help cure me as well!!

@Ishan Thanks for the support bro!!

@Sagar I know you know 'You-Know-Who' (thts sort of a tongue twister :P)....its kinda obvious!!I seriously hope you're right...except for the belgaum part!! :)

Amit Sengupta said...

Bro, every guy is suffering from the same disease (or syndrome as you. Believe me, same story here in Cuttack as well!

Us 'normies' really get stuck at in this very weird position!

Nice social pyramid though! :-)

Sathya said...

Ah, its just a phase - you'll get over it.

Once again, I'd thank my two vackra flickor (They know wht this means), for the continuous consolation they've given me over the last week and a half or so!! :) :)


Finally after all these years, here's to the beginning of what was there, what is there and hopefully what will remain!! So here are my thoughts & words -Online!!
