The Anti Love-Guru

That’s me. Throughout my adult life – wait, throughout my entire life I’ve hated to have committed people about me. Serious. And whenever one of my friends got committed, I have tried my level best (and even succeeded many times) to help break up. Against their will, obviously. But who cares. Single friends are the best.

I have successfully carried out 3 breakups in school (in school imagine!), 1 in Grad, 4 in M.B.A days and 2 in the working life. Good stats, no? And believe me, all of them are happy now. Well, Happier. And most of them are still my friends. Actually 4 are still my friends. But that’s a storng bond, ya know…been through thick and thin together.
Even today, I have this untamed – unstoppable part of me which unleashes itself the moment it senses the minutest of trouble in a friend’s relationship. I am livid then, almost irrepressible. All the wrong thing come out of my big mouth – basically against the relationship. Dont get me wrong, I am not a slimy bitch who wants everyone to be single. Its just that if I think a friend on mine has potential of being happy and vibrant, but is being held back by a certain ‘relationship‘, I feel bad. Pardon my limited knowledge and/or experience with relationships, but isn’t it supposed to set you free, give you space and make you happy in general? Well, this seems easy said than done with people. Most of the couples I know are whiny about space issues, are pissed with commitment fears or are plain depressed because of expectations-no-expectation syndrome. So, in such a situation it is better to be out of the relationshit, right? hmph. But people think I take some kind of an evil pleasure in other people’s breakups. (wicked smile) Well, this is highly untrue. And funny too. But once ppl believe something like that, it is completely impossible to convince them otherwise. Oh God. Hideous. Anyway, I stand for the cause of happyness. As in persuit of happyness. Being in some thing that takes away your peace of mind, your charm is frankly beyond me.
And since we are on the topic of anti-love guru and break-ups, here’s a true story of my friend…umm….lets call him Johny Bravo (haha) who recently broke up with his girl (2 year relationship) after a lot of blame-game and name calling sessions and thus, bitterness. And no, I didnt have any role to play here. So freshly out of a long relationship, the guy didnt know what to do. I mean for god sake, for 2 years all the guy had was a ‘steady relationship’ (not that its a bad thing or something, just saying) – the post break-up world was new to him. He was lost. An heart broken, of course. Was even sucidal for a while. Okay I just made this up. but seriously, suddenly he had so much spare time on him, he completely freaked out. (funny!) So a bunch of smart ass friends like me, suggested lots of things for him. He liked a lot of options. Now his day is like this – 5:30 am – Yoga (Hot Yoga Teacher). 7:30am – skipping session (the guy looks so toned now..umm).10am office (drowned in work – suddenly one of the best performers). 7pm – Swimming (yes.Swimming). 9pm – party (a lot of partying. He re-discovered the joys of being single ; )).
I’d say it is pretty good, no?
Except this, nothing much happened to me.
But please dont judge me – I dont ‘like’ break-ups at all.
And I am no more single myself, to prove the point.

    i absolutely know what u mean..
    being in a relationship can mean lots of restrictions.. and sooner or later, u tend to lose yourself in a world created solely by your partner according to his preferences.. that sucks
