When Jealousy Creeps In...


Love is in the air. Anyone and almost everyone seems to be falling for someone or the other. Now before you get the wrong idea, let me clarify – No! I am not in love. Yes, I put up mushy lovey dovey status messages now and then and confusing blog posts which intrigue the readers even more. Guess it’s just the age I am in where everything I do gets automatically misinterpreted as to being in love.

So like I was telling (and before I go off topic again), love is definitely in the air. Everywhere I go I see young couples hanging around – at restaurants, at shopping malls, at theatres – with a glow on their faces and a spring in their steps. I admire them for a second or two, go awwww within self and then all of a sudden jealousy hits. I mean how dare they fall in love, when yours truly hasn’t found a partner for herself as of yet? I give them some unnoticed glares and leave it at that.

It was during one of these lovey dovey days that I decided to go shop. I landed at a counter inside the shop which was showcasing some very nice collection of earrings. The only hindrance for me - a young and good looking couple. Hmmm, actually only the girl was good looking, the guy was just ohhh-kay. So there they were (mostly him), blocking the already small counter and I wasn’t able to admire properly or check out a pearly set which I had set my eyes on.

The boy looked more obsessed, besotted, ‘in love’ with the girl than vice versa.

*Girl tries on a pair of earrings*

BF : Ohhhhhh! You look SO fab! LOVELY!

GF (admiring herself on the mirror) : Yeah, no? Even I think so too. Looks awesome on me!!!

*Girl tries on another pair*

BF (eyes all dazed) : Wooowwww! Just look at you! So pretty.

GF (still admiring herself on the mirror) : Yeah no?!! Wow!! Just wow!

This complimenting from both sides (boy to girl, and girl to herself) went on for a good 5 minutes. I was there behind them admiring the scene, observing, taking it all in. Then.. yes… I hate to admit it… jealousy crept in. I decided enough was enough. I tapped the guy on his shoulders and asked in an irritated tone–

So did you find anything good for yourself?”

The sales lady figured out what was going on and ushered the guy away much to his embarrassment. Though the funny part is that the girl hardly noticed he was gone and she went on admiring herself in the mirror.

Oh well. It’s fun to be jealous sometimes! ;)

  4. Hi :)

    First time here and do I dare to say that was nasty:P The situation you described looked more filmsy than 'real love' but we should not and can not judge.But the guy must be really embarrassed, luckily for him that the girl didn't notice it :)

  8. Yay! First comment!

    That was a good one! That's precisely why I tend to stay outside the shops that resemble anything remotely close to a jewellery store.
    Thank God for Colaba causeway :P

    God knows what'll happen when I do meet someone.

    Pulkit - Poor Dhanno you mean? She had to wait for a good FIVE minutes :(

    Mustaf - Yes, I guess it was nasty. But I didn't really sound so mean. I am sugar-coated even if I am mean. Did that make sense? Maybe not. But yeah, my point being that the guy didn't take it so bad :)

    Anwesa - Thanks :D

    oRange - Yeah, I don't like too much flattery either! Gets to me :| Especially if its not directed towards me ;)

    AJai - Deal! :D

    Shaunak - Hehe. I think you forgot I moderate my comments around here! :D When you DO meet someone, you will have to do all this. But please PLEASE stay away from small counters which is showcasing girly stuff. DO think about other ppl like me :(

  28. Moderate comments! Devious way of deceiving your commenters to think they're the first to comment, thus creating more excitement in commenting, thereby drawing in more comments.

    That's Awesome!! :P

    ReplyDelete
  49. I too feel the same when I see hot couples around indulging in PDA

    ReplyDelete
  50. Is it plain love or a way of 'playing it safe' attitude on part of most men in love or a relationship?

    Am pretty divided on that thought. To start with, I am married.I often notice my hubby appreciate everything I wear and give a 10/10 score to all I cook. But at times, he overdoes it when he praises my food even before putting it in his mouth.

    Am sure it would have been a "jealousy provoking" scenario for you. But I definitely know the real funny part,where the girl didn't notice when the guy was gone cause she definitely stays unaffected by the never ending shower of compliments from her partner.

    Cheers!!
