One man is about to do the unthinkable. No sex. Whatsoever. For… 40 Days and 40 Nights!
Yes, I’m gonna do exactly what Josh Harnett did in that movie!
But wait, it’s been 10,338 days and 10,338 nights in my case… (almost! Yes, but for that ‘whatsover’ clause which might include certain acts that might constitute as a part or whole of sex!)
So what’s really different for the next 40 days and 40 nights?
I guess I’m gonna stay off women!
No asking women out.
No hitting on women.
No pestering friends asking for introduction to hawt chicks (This will be the toughest part).
No flirting whatsoever. Not even on Orkut! (No, actually, this will be the toughest part. Sorry Fid Jaan and Neha Darlings… you know I love you (lust also)!)
Not to do anything even remotely romantic! Or sexual! (Yes, including the ‘whatsover’ clause)
Cuz I suddenly realised that I have been doing this for the last eight years and getting my heart broken. And in increasing frequency! You all know the last one who did that! She’s in this blog! Just scroll a lil and you can find her pic! Yes, the Russian! (Background score: Ay Ajnabi from Dil Se!)
So I’m 28. And I am in no mood to get married, at least till I’m 30 (which is over 500 days away). Or 32. Or whenever I grow up!
And 28 is a tricky age.
Most women who go out with you only have legal sex on their minds (as in they see themselves having sex with you after you get married to them!)
Or, they only have illegal sex on their minds (as in they see themselves fucking you and your mind and later get married to someone else!).
And there are women like my last serious love interest who did not see a future with me cuz of some basic differences like faith. So we just went out and had the most amazing platonic thing ever until we got too attached to each other, enough to get irritated about the silliest of things (most of them rooted in the fact that we can’t be together)!
So, after an overdose of romance, I think it’s finally time to give the heart a break, before it breaks yet again! I believe that these 40 days and 40 nights will go a long way in the recuperation process, before I can ask yet another hawt chick : “Kya tum mera timepass banogi?”
