I hardly get online in chat messengers nowadays. There used to be a time when I used to be online 24 x 7. I used to live, eat, breathe Gtalk, Yahoo and Orkut. Now I have other interests - namely, affiliate marketing and blogging. Affiliate marketing takes a lot of my time and my hard work has started to bear fruit very recently! So yay! :-)
Anyway, so it was one of those rare days when I decided to get online in Gtalk and I happened to see this acquaintance. It's only once in every two or three years that I see this particular person online so we had a lot to catch up on. We started talking about the new gen relationships. What surprised me was that he considered 'one night stands' as decent. His question was 'If both the people are okay with it, then why not ?'
First of all, if one person wasn't okay with it, wouldn't it be considered rape ? Second of all, I highly disapprove of one night stands coz I truly believe relationships are meant to be forever (call me old-fashioned whatever). This made the guy retort by saying that I speak like a 'village mallu'. Talk about respecting each other's views...
So yeah, I am not THAT modern.
- I do not believe in one night stands. But that doesn't mean I would protest if you do. To each his/her own.
- I believe in having long lasting relationships.
- I believe physical indulgence should be based purely on love and not just on lust.
- I believe in respecting other people's views on things.
What do you believe in ?
P:S - Thanks Mayz (again!) for the 'tokens of love' :-)
