Major jam due to long weekend and I had time to observe.
Venue : Gurney Drive
Young, lovely couple holding hands, walking along the waterfront. So romantic under the evening lights and stars, with rows of casuarina trees and the sound of waves, lapping on the sandy beach. Man grinning uncomfortably, looking lost. Woman, laughing and tossing her hair.
Reason? Woman was busy sms-sing (text messaging on her cellphone) and laughing, lost in her own world. She was staring at her phone and punching the buttons. Why ler she can’t leave the handphone alone and pay attention to the hunk walking next to her?
Wish I can tell her : When you are out dating, make sure the guy feels like you are treating him as if he is very important and the only person around.
BUT ON THE OTHER END OF THE SCALE
Couple sitting down. Woman was fanning the man! Gosh! Is he a 2 years old baby or what? It is a breezy night mah. Is he fainting or what? His face didn’t look like he is enjoying the fanning wor. But this woman is fanning so furiously, it is comical. (on the same day, I had attended my sons’ school sports day and the Red Cresent Society also fanned a fainting athelete with the same intensity)
Wish I can tell her : Oi, stupid woman, you think you are serving the emperor or sultan kah? Leave the bugger alone lah. If he complains of heat, tell him to go jump into the sea or take you somewhere posh lah. Don’t ever be a doormat while on dates or else you will end up being stepped on every day for the rest of your life.
Do you agree? When a couple has dated for sometime, all the dirty habits will surface? Because they are comfortable with each other?
