Now, I don't know if it's just on my computer or everyone faces something similar. The Matrimonial Ad[s] : very irritating sometimes. They just happen to pop up or just stay there at one corner of the website. And they always ALWAYS put up a girl's picture for the banner. Why just a girl? Why not put up a guy's picture? Like we girls are the only desperate species to go get married :|
Not that I'm particularly mad about the girl's image or anything but I was reading an article related to my project and there was this Matrimonial Ad saying : Hi, I'm Heena, 22 years old. It was just there. I couldn't block it or anything, so it's not my fault if it's there :|
My mother walked in to ask me something and she sees the Ad. Little does she know that it's JUST an advertisement, she freaks out totally.
Mother : What are you watching?
Me : Umm, what?
Mother : What are you doing at shaadi.com?
Me : I'm not at shaadi.com :S I'm reading an article.
Mother : On girls who wants to get married?
Me : * still confused * Ma, what are you talking about?
Mother : Do you find that girl attractive?
Me : Which girl?
Mother : That girl HEENA!
Me : * after realizing that she saw the ad * Oh! Maa, that's just an ad..
Mother : * interrupts me * Isshhhh! Do you like girls? * raises her eyebrows *
Me : Well..
Mother : Oh my GOD!
Me : :|
Mother : Do you not like guys?
Me : Of course, I do. I like both guys and gir.. Wait a minute. Like in which sense?
Mother : Do you want to marry a girl? I can find a very good boy for you. Boys are good. Girls should marry boys not girls. Okay? * tries her best to convince me *
Me : Maa, I don't think of girls that way. Will you calm down? You're embarassing me.
Mother : * takes a different level * You ever had a boyfriend?
Me : Umm, not really.
Mother : WHAT? You only had girlfriends?
Me : I have friends who are mostly girls.
Mother : What about boys? You don't talk to them at all?
Me : Of course, I talk to them!
While this was on in the background, my msn messenger was on and my friend Sush pings me saying..
Sush : Anaaaaaa! I love you SO much. Your idea worked. I thrashed him away. He's gone now. If you were a guy, I'd have married you.
A very bad timing for my mother. :|
Mother : Who's that?
Me : Nobody.
Mother : Sush? That sounds like a girl's name.
Me : Maa, she's just a friend.
Mother : Why does she say she loves you? Oh god, what did you do to my child * gets upset *
And now my mother thinks I'm gay. :| Whenever I get phone calls from a girl, she freaks out even before I do.
So, seriously! You matrimonial ad agencies out there : A guy's picture. Once in a while! Alright?

We all try our best to describe ourselves. Online descriptions can be witty, funny, or right to the point. I've been to a bunch of forums and networking sites where a person's ''about me'' or ''profile'' section made me stalk or block the person. Mainly block but let's focus on the main point here.
The rock and rule description
I am the best person you'll ever come across in your entire life. I rock at singing and I rule in playing guitars. I rock with my friends all the time. My life rules and so will yours if you rock with me. If I rock and you rock, so our lives will rock! I rule big time. Let's rule together. Let's rock!
The positive-negative description
I've a positive outlook towards life. I can think positive and be positive. I loathe people with negative attitude. Remember, two positive minds can give birth to a positive idea. But when a negative mind is combined with a positive one, it gives birth to a negative idea.
The life-explorer description
My life has been very empty. I am still trying to figure out what life has in store for me. It's hard to understand life when life is trying to understand you. I'm lost in life.

The facebook description
--Most of them are too cool to not enter anything at all in the ''about yourself'' area because the other sections almost speak 90% about them.
