For 30 years of my life, I have answered enormous amount of questions, I survived most of them, but nothing is tougher than the following two questions that threw to me some times ago.
1. Do you think he's good?
At the very end of my relationship where everything is going to collapse, my ex's mom approached me and talked to me. She told me she know what is happening and she can do nothing about it. She tried to talk to her daughter but the result is still the same, and she's helpless. I really appreciate by knowing that she's standing on the same side with me.She's one of the best mom ever.
After a long talk, she suddenly asked me:" Do you think he's good?"
She's asking for my opinion about the third person, who barged into my relationship and took the girl who I once thought I was going to spend the rest of my life with. That particular guy, she's asking me whether he's good enough for her.
For a while, my brain was crashing, started to dump memory, and everything went into blue screen.
At that moment, I don't have an answer for that.
Now I think of it, I still don't have answer for that.
Toughest question ever.
2. Is it because she's not pretty?
When I turn 30 and still single for almost 3 years, everyone is freaked out.
But here I am, because I'm 30 and single, I have a lot of interesting stories! This is one of them.
One of my retired uncle and aunt wished to introduce their friend's daughter to me. She's single and close to my age. They gave me her number and asked me to call her. Basically, I did nothing.
My uncle saw me did nothing and he almost rage, asking me to take the first move to talk to the girl. I'm solid as rock, nothing can move me. I told them I will do it if I'm free. Well, as you can see that's an excuse.
One day, I flew over to their home for my cousin's wedding. I sat on the table with a group of old people, eating kolo mee as my breakfast.
Suddenly, my aunt pointed me with her finger and shouted:" Neh! This is the guy I mentioned to you and want to introduce to your daughter one lo!"
I looked at the auntie, yeah, she's is my aunt's friend, who can't wait for a lucky guy to marry her daughter.
That auntie started to bombard me on the table. For your info, my mom was there too.
She's saying something like why I didn't try to talk to her daughter, she's very shy one, she never has a boyfriend before etc etc.
Then she continued:" What's the problem? Is it because you think she's not pretty?"
And again, my brain is crashing, how the hell should I answer this question.
Luckily, my brain didn't turn into blue screen mode.
This time, I came up with a brilliant answer.
"This kolo mee taste so good!"
I quickly finish it and ran away.
I know right? It's a tough job to be single and handsome.
Alright, I'm actually writing this on 3am, right after I posted the photo on FB but I will never explain the stories on there. I like to make people keep guessing.
