Day were passing by and the search was still on. I was enjoying the process and started to search on my own on matrimonial website. Phone conversations were normal now. I realized that there are many other modes of communication as well such as chatting,video calls etc. Parents were fully absorbed in the process and just want me to get married. They were now comfortable, if I initiate the talks and later inform them to meet. As I mentioned, they were progressing in the procedure.
I met a NRI guy settled in London through a matrimonial site. We saw the profiles and decided to go forward. We exchanged the email ids. Email communication started with casual introduction of our qualifications, work profiles in detail etc. We moved on to likes, dislikes and hobbies after that. Gradually we decided to start chats, rather emails. Usually the conversation used to involve our daily routine. The daily routine talks helped us to know each other better. The conversation used to be quite interesting. Every day we get to know something new about each other. I used to chat from my office. Going to office now had a exciting reason. It was fun to know a person. In one of the chats we exchanged numbers.
Phone conversations were even more interesting. I felt emotional connect with him. The feelings seemed mutual. It was a nice feeling.
Few days later he informed me about his visit to India. By this time, we have informed our parents. This was the first time I initiated the selection process and called parents for formal meet. My parents started preparation for the meeting.
I was fascinated to meet him. “It would be good to meet this person”, I thought.
But we never met. Just two days before the meeting, he called me up and said,”I am not interested in meeting. Best of luck to you. Nice knowing you.” Probably the feelings were not mutual. We deleted each other from chats and never chatted with each other again.
Sometimes, we feel everything is fine, but still it is not. Especially in arranged marriage. Like I had silly reasons to reject my previous prospect,he might also had. Also, in arrange marriage, usually we talk to 2-3 prospects at a time and finalize one of them. Hence have to say NO to other ones.
Bitter sweet memories. Best wishes to him. I consider it as a meeting without actually meet.
More rendezvous to follow.
