Crushing Over Crush

Posted on


Now this is more of a confession, I am a die heard romantic and I am addicted to the amazing feeling of having a crush on someone. There I said it (Ohhhh dear). But the fact remains that I love to be in love. Even when I am not in a relation, which is my actual state of relation, I go ahead and develop a crush or an infatuation. I do all sorts of teeny love acts, like admiring them from far, save their messages and read them again and again and maybe even ask them out for a date.

But that’s just about it. I don’t really take it through because I feel relations are more of a more serious stuff and you should only go serious with people who are worth so much attention in life.

I don’t really break hearts or burst into emo tears over crushes or infatuations, it’s just a fun feeling of having your heart skip few beats when someone special pass by. I know I sound completely crazy, and I get a whack on my head a million times by my best friend who thinks I have lost my mind and need a shrink real bad.

And today I was just reminded of how amazing that feeling of having a crush on someone is, when one of my old crushes gone cold, showed up out of nowhere and it was like someone pressed a repeat telecast button. I was falling for him all over again.

My friend is so going to kill me for this, but this feeling, it’s addictive.

Anyone else out there who is just as crazy as I am or am I the only one of her kind?

True Beautiful You

Posted on

While I was doing random reading on net lately (yah I do random reading on net as well), I came across a much read blog about ‘being feminine’. It talked about how to be feminine. The writer of the blog suggested that to be feminine a woman should wear dresses, skirts, have long lustrous hair, should paint their nails, wear heels, talk softly, apply makeup and more of such blah-blah. I decided to put a pin on that thought while I stepped out to spend my Sunday with my girlfriends.

While I was enjoying with my friends, one of my girlfriend said, “What’s it about you? Guys can’t seem to stop noticing you?” I followed her vision and ended up looking into a cute face openly checking me out. I did mention he was cute right, so I had to check him out as well.

But what really got my attention was my friend’s statement ‘What’s it about you?’ and I decided to study my friends. Both my friends were dressed as per the ideal ‘Feminine Look’. Dresses, heels, makeup, heavy hanging perfume and perfectly set hair. They looked perfect examples of how a feminine female should look like. Compared to them, I looked dressed down in my denim, t-shirt (Ironically I had bought that t-shirt from guy’s section as I could not find a marvel comic hero t-shirt in girl’s section), sneaker, hair tied up in a bun and sans makeup. Yet I was getting more looks than they were.

How? Why?

And then it dawned on me that being feminine is not about the clothes you wear. It’s not about how you style your hair or how much make up you wear. Being feminine is about how you feel inside your skin. You can wear denims and sneakers and you can still be more of a woman than girls in flowing dresses with high heels. Because being a feminine is about being happy being a female. Speak your mind and being nice to people.

I am happy and proud of myself. When I walk, I walk with my chin up and a smile on my lips. I love myself, however I might be. I am just as comfortable in dresses as I am in denims.

More than how to be feminine, one should focus on why one should be feminine. Many girls think this is the easy way to catch a guy’s attention. Well, which guy would get attracted to you if you are too bothered about your hair, make-up, and dresses showing not showing too much? This just shows how unnatural and artificial you are and just how uncomfortable you are being you. Compared to my friends, I was more comfortable in what I wore, which made it easy for me to carry myself well and have a good time. I was laughing and enjoying myself while my friends were busying fussing over themselves. It’s no wonder guys didn’t notice them.

So my advice to all the lovelies out there is ‘You can’t be feminine or a lady if you can’t be yourself.’ Nothing is more attractive than confidence, be it in a guy or girl. Be happy with who you are and learn to except and enjoy yourself. If you are comfortable in your skin than you are more feminine and attractive than any woman in dresses and makeup.

Definition Friends

Posted on

Friends, one of the most commonly used word and relation. But somehow it has lost its value, definition and importance with time.

 I had a common definition for friendship which I could easily relate to with all my friends. Friends are those who are part of you, but are not you. Does not make sense does it? No it does not to many. It means, friends know you, understand you like they are a part of you. Yet they can be completely different people, with choices contrasting to yours, thoughts different from yours, yet it never creates any rift between the two of you, because friends are accepting and forgiving.

 But my thought got clouded when I started work. Office friends have a different equation. My friends of office are somewhat towards a selfish mode. They are highly demanding, prefer people of same wavelength, and are not at all forgiving. I need to tread carefully to make that friendship last.

 Which makes me wonder, if that is what we need to do with friends, than how do we define friendship?
