I Never Looked At You That Way
I was leafing through TV channels today and came across this comedy show where a stand-up comedian expressed his profound observation regarding the way women behave when proposed by men. Here’s an extract with little improvisations from yours truly.
Typical response of a girl when proposed by a guy who has been her friend from quite sometime…
Girl: I thought we are just good friends…
Guy: Yes… we still are … and we make a good couple too
Girl: I don’t know what to say … I never looked at you that way… you see, you are a great person… I like you a lot…. but … I can’t mix relations with friendship…
Guy: Why can’t we work this out?
Girl: please don’t take me in a wrong way … you deserve someone much better than me …
---- Silence ----
Girl: See… I want our friendship to continue … it is very valuable for me… you have always helped me in difficult times … been there when I called you up middle of the night for help ….
Guy: …. (Disappointed)
Girl: Now don’t be so disappointed … I will search you a good girl for you…
Personally, I feel nine out of ten guys have experienced this situation in their lives. What freaks them out this same girl going out with a completely stupid guy whom she has met just 10 days back! I have never understood what goes through the girl’s mind… I have never understood that sentence … “I didn’t look at you that way”. This situation is like… you are in an interview for a job that you desperately need and this is what the interviewer tells you at the end of your interview …
Interviewer: Your resume is one of the best I have seen…
You: Thank you.
Interviewer: You make a great fit to our company … your attitude … your skill set is exactly what we need for this job.
You: Thank you.
Interviewer: But we won’t be able to take you for the job. We prefer a less suitable candidate.
You: Why Sir?
Interviewer: You see … You are a great person… you deserve a much better company that ours
You: This is my dream company sir… I would like to work here.
Interviewer: It is your humbleness that you attended our interview… I don’t think our company will do justice to your talents. If you want, I can help you in identifying suitable company for you.
How would you feel at the end of such interview… that’s how guys feel being turned down with that stupid reason… You know… it still confuses me… what does a girl mean when she says “I never looked at you that way”? It generates so many questions….
1. Does she look at each guy in different ways and identify potential candidates who will fit her specific needs?
2. To be precise, where does she look?
3. How to make a girl look at ‘that’ way?
I bet even the girl can’t answer these questions… this is my theory about girls …
While being as friend with a guy, 90% of the girls put up an external character. A character that is completely different from what she is in reality. Even though you hear stories about her ‘adventures’ from your other friends, you would rather trust the girl than your other friends… basically you went dumb in her love… all the while, the girl would be feeling stupid about you. Basically… she wants you to take advantage of her closeness… doing something exciting …. but as a dumb guy who is in love… you would behave in such a predictable way … and eventually when you propose… she just turns you down by saying “I never looked at you that way”.
Moral of the story – Before proposing a girl… make her look at you the so called “that way”. Do something exciting … take control… be adventurous… don’t be a predictive dumb idiot… God has given you brain… use it…. and then see the after effects…
And for all the girls who are reading this blog… I love you all!
