If you thought newspapers ,only provided you, with all the high about news and views(guaranteed to make you feel the converse ),escalating frauds and scams ,broken political promises, the politics of sports, more good(err bad) news about the Bangalore’s new airport and of course the who’s who on tattoos and breakups. Wait for the weekend edition.
Monday to Friday the papers do just that, but the weekend edition trains you, for that extra edge. Do you wait to gorge the weekend edition of the newspaper, to catch up on the latest buzz on mundane things like restaurants,movies,theatre and bargain shopping? Then you are probably passé and archaic (like me).Check this out.From 'how to talk and how much to talk', to the latest research in locating soul mates. There’s a whole page devoted to PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT. It’s the age wholesome information, who needs a love guru, when you have ‘THE TIP’, served crisp and fresh for breakfast, on a Saturday morning.
And I quote……
(How to make a man fall in love with you)…TIMES are changing bhai!!!
1. Get a life. Your life should not revolve around a man. Have your own interests and hobbies, it’ll help in making you attractive.(the more the hobbies……. the more attractive a woman is!!!!!Equation simple)
2. Make him ask you out on dates, but don't ask him. It’s not about being old fashioned, it’s about playing hard to get.(of course courting and love is a game……who’s the hunter and who’s the hunted??)
3. Don’t be desperate. You must not agree to go out on a date the last minute. If he asks you out the same day, say no. Tell him you already have plans. He should know that you are a busy woman, with a life of your own.(even if you have been waiting to spend the weekend with him)
4. Do not answer every email or text message he sends you. This will give you some mystery and make him want to chase you even more. When you do plan to answer, make him wait a little bit, and don't answer the phone every time he calls. You can't let him think you are available for him all the time.
At the cost of sounding old, I would say, times have changed. This is indeed the age of meticulous calculations and planning.Whether, it’s love or relationships,the motto is….. “play hard to get and calculate what you’ll get at the end of it”. Elusive is exclusive??Whatever happened to good old spontaneity, an unexpected kiss or the peck on the cheek, cupid’s reliable assistant, which said so much more than words could ever. That last minute change of mind and heart, to go for a drive instead of a movie, because it was raining. And if you are still old fashioned and listen to your heart,still say yes to that unexpected suggestion for a drive,answer the phone promptly,answer mails readily.Then you are likely to confuse your man,about your intentions.
Spontaneity and romance just died an unnatural death, somewhere. Instinct and love just got replaced by the newspaper. I feel oddly old today!!!!
