Everyone is getting married! And, what the heck I am doing?

Before you start - Are you single? Are you 23 or 24 or 25 or 26 years old?
OK, great! Proceed!!

So, my day doesn't pass without seeing at least one new status update by one of my friends on Facebook about his or her engagement or marriage or honeymoon. What happening these days is the 'status update' content remains the same, just the names and face of friend change every time! Many friends and classmates of mine got engaged in the past year (more precisely, in past twelve calendar months). Some got married. Some posted about their honeymoon abroad, from abroad. And, some newly married extended their family. Aww, kids! And, some are waiting for the good news, whilst some newly wed couples might be planning their family plan.

Initially it sounded exciting that a friend of mine is getting married. But, honestly, these days I feel nothing great about it (No, I am not turning into a machine, yet!). It's not like I am not happy for them, or it's not like I am jealous or something. It's just that each day I see someone posting something about their married life or upcoming married life, with each new such status update my excitement is going down. (Dude, you really need to meet them in person to see how happy they are! Yeah, I know!!)

Well, he too got married!” , “Well, she too got engaged!”
I say to myself and scroll down or scroll up Facebook home page. Whilst the newly wed couples are excited to post their romantic life on Facebook, I get a prison like feeling browsing Facebook. I feel like I am being forced to see their updates. I feel like there is nothing else remained to read, post and do at Facebook. Sometimes I see nightmares about people posting comments and hitting like button on my status update about I am getting married!
“What the fuck!” Saying so I awake myself to find the peace and relief that I am not married yet!

"So, does that mean - I hate marriage?"
It's not like that I hate the whole idea of marriage or even it's not like that I never want to get married someday; I do want to get married someday, but before that I have some dreams of mine to accomplish, I have some targets of my own to hit. (Really? Wtf!)

So, another day in previous week I was talking with myself -
So you have some dreams to accomplish before you get married?”
Yes!”
So, you must be working hard to make those come true!”
Nah! Nope!! Not really!!!”
Duh! Then...?”
I don't know what the heck I am doing! I mean I am just 24...”
So are they, 23 or 24 or 25, who got married.”


So, who got married or engaged till now?
  • Those boys who were the only child their parents had
    • some of these boys tied knot to accomplish some business deal with their dad's family friends ('family friends' is a lame term, it's more of a 'business partners')
    • or whose father is a businessman (legacy business)
    • or whose parents are from Gujarat
  • Those girls who were the only child their parents had
    • who had serious issues with her dating life
    • or whose parents are South-Indians
  • Those elder boys
    • who got a job, a house in the same city; mostly those who are living at their parents house (Lucky bastards!)
    • or whose father is a businessman (OK, these dudes never tell what kinda business their parents do. And, even if they tell, you always get the same answer - “Import-export business”! Assholes!!)
  • Those elder girls
    • they had to get married, they were elder
    • or those who were having an affair
  • Those younger girls
    • who were having an affair (again, I know)
    • or whose elder brothers are studying abroad
  • Those boys and girls
    • whose hearts were broken and romantic-dreams were shaken (Poor fellows, who probably married the very first girl or boy their parents suggested!)
    • who broke other hearts (Bastards and sluts, who were always afraid of committing to a single person!)
    • who had serious addiction problems

So, who are yet single?
  • Those boys who were the only child their parents had
    • who are studying abroad
    • or whose parents are not from Gujarat
  • Those girls who were the only child their parents had
    • who had serious issues with her dating life
    • or whose parents are not South-Indians
  • Those elder boys
    • who got a job, but looking for a house in the same city (Most single boys will fit into this section!)
    • or whose father is not a businessman (I know!)
  • Those elder girls
    • whose parents are looking for a royal family for her
  • Those younger girls
    • who are having an affair and either she or the one she loves is not ready to commit yet
    • or whose elder brothers are studying or doing a job abroad
  • Those boys and girls
    • whose hearts were broken and romantic-dreams were shaken (Poor fellows, they never want to get married! Well, that's what they say!!)
    • who broke other hearts (Bastards and sluts, who will keep doing the same and are always afraid of committing to a single person!)
    • whose girlfriend/boyfriend had serious addiction problems that he/she didn't know earlier
    • who, still are waiting for someone to fall in love with them (Aww, daydreamers! Go, catch someone date-worthy!!)
    • who had some things to do before getting married (me, raises hand!)
    • who want to roam round the globe
    • who are artists
    • who left their boring jobs
    • who are looking for jobs/new jobs
    • who want to reach to certain level of financial stability
    • who want to devote their life to country (Ha-ha... kidding!)

On a higher level, these are the categories where most of us fit. Of course these are from my view.

"Where do I fit in here?"
Well, I, find myself, fitting into some of the categories for singles. (No, I am not gonna tell which are those.) Of course, I don't hate marriages and I want to get married.

"Then why I am not feeling good about these Facebook updates?"
Well, I think the sole reason behind that is – each new such status updates reminds of these criteria/categories I am now fitting into and those make me walk down the memory lanes. Well, that pretty much sucks!

Where do you fit? What you think?



Everyone is getting married! And, what the heck I am doing?
