Nah. Not really. Actually I am all for those mushy mushy love stories… the tall, dark, handsome men, who are considerate and ambitious and perfect husband material.
What I do hate is the reality.
Whatever happened to those men who went down on their knees.. bought flowers…and liked taking long walks…
Are they real or are these writers writing stories just for emotional fools like me!
So one day I sat down to compare these “Perfect Men” with the real ones and what I found surprised me immensely…. Here I have compiled most of it
The real men don’t carry flowers.. coz they carry waterbottles for us…
The real men don’t need villains to cause a rift with their Lady Love. They have an inbuilt mechanism for it called “EGO” ….. and yet when this very EGO fetches them a Job on themselves, there is nothing more we are proud of!
The real men don’t fight hooligans in the train/bus. “When you are with me, we are taking a cab” they declare.. now how do you fight that???
The real men fail to understand why a pen drive is not such a good idea for an anniversary gift. And yet when you remember them every time you use it, you know that they were right somewhere.
The real men for some reason best known to them hate walking in the rains. But isn’t that the most romantic thing ever? “Lets wait, we will get more time with each other” and now no matter how hard you try you can’t get angry when they put it this way.
Unlike the Heroes who thrive only on love the real men have mundane things like colleges and offices to attend. “That’s for us” they say… and we stand there speechless…..
The real men somehow don’t understand the Eye language ( now how difficult is that!!) and yet they write programs in languages called C and Java that actually run the company!!
And unlike the end of every movie….Its surprising how the real men do not put their lady love in trouble. Sheaa… I will never get to be the heroine I thought I would be one day……… Instead they say “you are my responsibility…..” and suddenly its better to be weak
So dear Shahrukh, Hrithik, Ranbir and Tom,
Your ratings have slipped
I’ve realized how easy it is to be perfect for 3 hours in a movie, but difficult be even be 50% of that in real life. That explains why English movies are even shorter!
All the real men out there, you move ahead!!!!
The more I get to know the real men, the more I love and respect them.
Cheers to the REAL men! (though we can do with some flowers )
