Kati Patang

fingers flying on the micro mini keyboard of phone "how was your day"

beep beep "was ok, rough day"

beep beep "how was yours"

beep beep "pretty good, i downloaded this bloody awesome movie btw..."

beep beep "oh yeah temme abt it"

beep beep

beep beep...and so flow the conversations when two strangers get acquainted and start exploring each other...

Ofcourse these beeps would have started off from a chance meet somewhere...and will probably turn to hour long conversations of same nature...

soon however even this will pass into the phase when the two shall start meeting...and this is where the rubber meets the road...because no matter how much you text, scrap, tweet or talk...its only when you spend time with each other that the heart either grows fonder or fainter...real real fast...

And that is why people find the change difficult to adjust to, it all happens so fast...the person you were talking to suddenly starts giving you hot rushes (in the good way ;) ) or you start wondering what were you thinking of all these weeks.

Whats more discomforting is the reason you've stopped liking that person...dresses badly, has a wierd odour to them, teeth, hair, bad at humor, bad humor :P, too lanky, too fat, all the things that you thought were too superficial to you...

And then the phase of the i've been busy, ignoring the person, something that starts happening naturally...

And i've seen both sides of the gender get caught on both sides of the problem...the ignorer and the ignored (yes ignoree is no word :P). Its hard for someone to explain this to someone who they've lost interest in as to why...mostly they ain't sure themselves...but its not so hard for the ignored to catch onto the signals...

In that case...Be silent, be gone...its probably for the better :) (and don't trust me on this...life is an experiment..go ahead and have yours :P)

I so know what you are talking about. It is just so annoyingly confusing as to what really got you away from that person and when you get along with the person, we settle at 'it was magical'

Kisses.

I have seen a lot of this too. It's why people need to meet in rl not on the net.

bumping into ppl in real is always a better deal than bumping into ppl online...but given the extent of time spent online and ubiquity of social networking i think increasingly more ppl are going to bump into each other online first...

but the post wasnt so much about where you meet...even if u bump into a person in say a party...before the dating stage a lot of smsing and phone talk happens...

the whole point was that about the switchover stage where the second hurdle has to be crossed (first being making a nice first impression)...second is seeing if u can make it stick :P

Mrinalini said...

i soo know what you mean..and yes, being the ignorer is fun, what isnt fun is the fact that almost everytime, you do end up at the same lane... :|

I really agree with this post - I think you have hit the nail right on the head.

it takes under a minute for u to form an opinion of someone when u meet them for the very first time! under a minute! its that subliminal! and more often than not, what u feel then, is the truth!

:D
