The slipper fit…
The frog turned into a prince…
The true love’s kiss woke her up…
And they lived happily ever after!!!
Wish it were as simple as fairy tales 🙂
In arranged marriage scenario, one fine day guy meets girl and probably meets a couple of more times. Then the two people are supposed to decide if they want to spend their lives together or not. No pressure. When meeting guys, I have always wondered how do I know he’s the guy for me ??? For years I have been asking this question to the people who want the best for me and have the purest intentions. The answers I get are:
Grandmother: Arrey!! What kind of question is this..? I did not even see or talk to your grandfather till we were married. Marriages are made in heaven… Just trust the lord.
Parents: Just make a list of pros and cons and weigh your options. You can live with a person forever and not know him; and sometimes one moment is enough. Besides, have faith in our choice. We want the best for you 🙂
Older married sister: Babe, it’s a leap of faith you need to take. You jump in the water and you’ll learn to swim.
Friends: Why couldn’t you just date and marry someone from college or work… Now that you’ve found no one. Just marry a decent person, the kind you can be comfortable with:)
Younger siblings: Just marry someone who’s your type!?! And start believing in Love at first sight, for your good 😉
These are helpful for sane-logical people. But what about a few insane people like me? Well, besides having faith in the lord and the well meaning people; Have faith in you. All I can tell you is, you’ll know when it’s right. Falling in love the first time you meet, is rare. But, if you connect to a person, go with the flow. In your heart you’ll know it is right. You maybe surprised that he’s not “Your type” but you both get along, like the house is on fire!! And if you live in confusion or chaos, then it’s time to explore more, inside out. 🙂
“Finally, ask yourself “Am I making the right decision;” Expect an answer and you will be guided!!”
