‘But she lied to you’
just write to uncle Cy
I’ve been in love with my teacher who is about three years older than me. We used to talk on Whatsapp. I even proposed to her. But she rejected my proposal. I asked her to block me on Whatsapp. She did so, but then came online a few hours later and started chatting again, though, with a lot of attitude. She even told me she was engaged, which I later got to know was a lie. I completed my studies and now I’m working. She didn’t even appreciate the fact that I got a job. Does she love me or is she indicating that I move on?
XYZ, let me tell you as a three time failed psychology student (it got so bad trying to clear the exam that I had to see a psychiatrist) that you are exhibiting symptoms of the ‘Suffering Hero’ complex. By this, I mean that you are clearly trying to play the martyr here (the tragic romantic hero). Sadly, there is nothing from her side which seems to show she had any serious interest in you.
So, in other words, you thought of her as the love of all loves, and she thought of you as a TV set to turn on and off for her amusement. Now she’s bored of the TV perhaps because it’s the internet age, who knows? But she lied to you to shake you off. So, please leave her alone and remember that the relationships between humans and electronic goods is a seriously limited one! I’m in love with a girl who has been my friend for the last three years. I’ve never told her that I love her. I know that she loves me. The problem is that we both hail from different religions. My family and friends have told me not to proceed ahead in this relationship because it will create problems in the future. What should I do?
SK, when King Something the 11th of England listened to his ‘friend’, he had Thomas Beckett killed. And that was a huge mistake that has haunted the English nation right up to their failure at this year’s Rugby World Cup. Emperor Akbar’s friends asked him to cut off all of Birbal’s toes for talking too much. If the Emperor had listened to his pals, he would never have become good friends with Birbal.
I ask you to show the same wisdom and ignore your friends. You alone will be affected by what you do. So, decide things for you by a person called yourself. I myself had a love marriage. That they were absolutely right is anoth- er matter. The decision was made by the cousin of yourself myself. So man up and ride the Bronco. In the words of the worst pop song ever written “Its your Life!” I had sex with my teacher, who is eight years older than me. Now, she’s pregnant and wants me to support the child. I’m too young to leave everything behind and start a new life. Should I plan my future accordingly or dump her and move on?
My first reaction was ‘Lucky you’, but on examining the matter in detail, I have to tell you that you are a bit unlucky. Actually, this situation would have been great for you only if you had lived in the golden horde of Hungala Khan! Those guys pillaged, plundered, impregnated and then would put on their most innocent and original faces. And they never helped support the child. If someone was to ask them that who’s the father, they would always point to whoever was on their right, even if it was a footstool. Unfortunately, you have to be what our politicians never are — accountable! If you dig the bed, then you got to lie in it. As the cockney saying goes — do please understand your life had changed forthwith and you do have a baby to bring up one way or another.
