All these days I’ve been busy with my movie and reviewing films for the paper that it’s almost like I haven’t gone out for a movie as a social outing in ages!
The thing is that once you spend too much time with one girl for a few months, you lose touch with the other friends who were once your regular movie-dates. Yes, I’m not including the guys because you never really lose touch with the guys. They are always there around you, even when the bitch thinks you are alone and depressed. I can go on and write a huge post on male bonding and the undying spirit of friendship among men. But this one is about the bitter-sweet pangs and joys of being single and unattached!
So today, I woke up and realised just that! I have seen many many movies in the last few months but none really with my women friends, in ages! I have only myself to blame for that.
At 28, it’s just a matter of few months before you realise that most of the women who used to go for movies with you now are busy trying to retain their commitment-phobic boyfriends or worse-still … their newly-wed husbands. You suddenly realise that you are among the rare few single people you know and all the single girls you still know were never really the ones you were interested in. Even as a social security partner.
Yeah, social security partner. That’s a term I came up with to label non-committal, timepass relationships with the opposite sex since women so want a label for everything.
Right now, today, I want to see ‘Hitch,’ the Will Smith movie about the date-consultant. But the hitch is, I don’t have a date to watch the movie with! And no, frankly I don’t fancy watching ‘Hitch’ with the guys. With guys, I would probably watch a Chandramukhi (Thalaivaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!) or ‘Sachein’ or even Sins. But a movie like Hitch or Princess Diaries … NEVER!
So I realised that it’s now time to meet new people. Read normal, ordinary, simple women … yes, I’m done with waiting for interesting, exciting, funny and super-intelligent not because they don’t exist… it’s just that they come at a price.
Duh! If they are not yet taken, there’s obviously a good enough reason for that. They are either
a. Psycho at some level
b. Trying to get over some asshole who cheated on them
c. Waiting for their Moms to find them a boy
d. All of the above!
And the others who seem nice and sweet are just too young!
So what does a guy do?
Here’s what I did.
Went to the DVD store and picked up some movies I always wanted to watch.
1. City of God: Bought a two-in-one combo with Out of Time.
2. Untouchables and Scarface combo.
3. L.A. Confidential, Identity and Swimming Pool combo.
4. There’s Something About Mary and the Sweetest Thing combo, just for Cameron Diaz!
Yeah, these nine movies on four DVDs for 500 bucks! More exciting than a date, for sure.
And yes, cheaper too! Ha ha!
Social security partner – great label 🙂
ya.. that was good.. Social Security Partner indeed :))
Btw.. there are some movies u nver shld watch with the gals, particularly any movie that stars two or more of this bunch of actors – Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom, George Clooney, Pierce Brosnan and Jude Law. This is coming out solely from experience, so take it seriously 😉
@anti … Why?
coz the attention shifts from you to those guys on screen ;)???
watch hitch! i just saw it the other day, its brilliant loved it! real chick flick! ana u’ll like!
Sudhish Kamath, stop analysing love and the dating game so much and take it easy for a while. Just relax and have a good time till you find someone right for you, instead of analysing it, and blogging. Honestly, I dont want anymore blogs on love and dating. I miss your trademark tongue in cheek humor. Please comeback with something lighter 🙂
I totally agree!!
no cuz it makes for distracting viewing and embarassing when the babe next to u starts making noises that sound like orgasms!
watchin this evening if i finish work early!
do me a favour. jus stay away from here when u’re in the mood for advice.
does it look like i care about wat u think? 🙂
ROTFL at ‘Social security partner’
Amazed at the terms you conjure up from time to time.
Long time reader, first time ‘commenter’.
Your search foe HAWT chick ends here????
“So I realised that it’s now time to meet new people. Read normal, ordinary, simple women”
That’s terrifyingly, depressingly sad. Anyway, what makes you think you won’t keep waiting for these ordinary, simple women as well? Aww, and your reasons for non-availability of super-intelligent, smart women is bullshit..Face it, they’re just too good for you 🙂
@ Anon: lol, sorta, esspecially if u go with 2 gals and u sit between them 😉 and u watch the movie from the second row cos there are no more seats!
@ Suderman: Not so bad, ponnunga pasangaloda degent 😉 It just amnts to drooling from the corner of their mouths.
@ Arthi: The reasons that guys have mostly turn out to be more relevant than the ones that the ladies have for not finding the right one. Anyways, no offense meant. Its easy to laugh at all those male-female comparison scenarios, but looking at them seriously, sometimes u gotta agree with our viewpoints. It sometimes pays to be binary ;). Enna naan sollaradhu, Suderman!
Btw wat happ to part 2 “TFLW” series???
been waiting for a looong time for that!
my search for hawt chick ends?? sez who?? I said “I’m done with waiting for interesting, exciting, funny and super-intelligent women”…which part of that ever meant hawt??
and i just happen to remember wat ramgopal varma said when someone asked him if we wud choose an intelligent girl or a hawt one… he said he wud pick the hawt one cuz: “For intelligence, I wud read a book.”
Sounds good to me!
i’ve never had a problem finding women! or lets just say they find me!
look at u here for instance…
in fact, thats exactly the problem Im talkin abt… the ones who find me turn out to be quite like u! absolute smart asses!! 🙂
u sure seem to be watchin quite a few of those movies huh??
What DVD shop is this?. If it ain’t in Burma Bazaar (wouldn’t want to incur AMMA’s wrath), I’d like to pay a few visits to the shop.
Suderman, lets just say that I might be on a mission of my own and leave it at that 😉
Btw, dude, I wouldn’t imagine speaking to women like the way you do on here. Esspecially being as single as we are…..Are you RC as well? 😉
its on richie street, so maybe u can buy!
why? do i sound rude with the women here? hmmm… lets just say they just chose sensitive areas to talk about! and me blogging about my life does not give anyone the licence to tell me what i shd be doing! did i place an ad calling for anonymous agony aunts?? no, not quite! 🙂
And whats RC btw?
Remote Controlled? Rival Camp? Red Card? Religiously Conscious? Regularly Cramped? Root Cause? Radical Cut? Racist Chump? Rip Cord? Real Cool? Robust Car? Red Czar? Ring Champ? Rowdy to the Core? Rapid Cat? Really Cute? Ruud Cullit (lol, couldn’t resist)? Rude Chap? Rice Chowder? Road Chart? Rump Conscious?
Suderman: No dude. ‘Curt’ would the word I’d use. I am sometimes just happy that someone I perceive as, ahem, female (in these troubled times, you can never be sure..), actually seems to think that my views are worthy of comment. And I’d be hardpressed to respond with anything other than a Joey-esque “How you doing?”
And, fyi, RC – Romantically Challenged!
dai arvind kisnaa,
u forgot Royal Challenge (whiskey?) or Roman Catholic!!
Romantically challenged?? am i?? well, u r rite to an extent! i guess Im RC, at least temporarily!! but like thalaivar said: im not an elephant that will have difficulties getting back on its feet. i’m a horse, will back on feet and start running, almost immediately!!
and thalaivar did do that, didn’t he!! so do i hope to! 🙂
Thalaivar vazhi thani vazhi.. but all of us are part of his “anbal serndha padai” and avaroda vazhi dhaan namma vazhiyum! We shall overcome.. someday 😉
thanks for the pointers on ways to react while watchin hitch…will make a note…btw where do u get ur dvd s…i cant seem to find them in combos…
also your neologism-‘social security partner’ gud…
