I made my move

I love to hear about how a couple met each other for the first time. There I was, on the other day listening to a friend recount his version of the story of how he met his girlfriend. The story was not extraordinary. But the slideshow of emotions on his face was priceless while recounting the incident.

Apparently, he met his girlfriend three years ago through common friends. During the first meeting, he was wearing a pink shirt. So, she doubted his sexual orientation. Then they met again accidentally at a club where they bonded after which my friend made his intentions clear. Here I'm going to quote my friend verbatim. "I made my move". His voice dipped a few decibels when he was on the "I" and went up a few notches by the time he reached the "move". For a moment, he was reliving the propitious moment oblivious of my presence.

In his case, the first impression of the pink shirt had an effect. His move was at first mistaken by his girlfriend. But my friend's persistence paid off eventually. What caught my attention was my friend's eyes focused away as if being in that moment in the past and the change of decibel levels during narration. This definitely was a time when the guard was down. The expressions on his face reminded me of the famous Mastercard ad. "For everything else, there is...".

  1. A neat love affair that started all the way with the colour 'Pink'. I guess, pink should be the lucky colour for this lovely couple....emotional post and I enjoyed it.

  4. Well, the story is one thing. But your observation and recounting of the same made me feel as if I was listening to your friend.

  6. Nice story and equally nice narration by you too.... LOL about the pink shirt, it brought back a memory too me, when I too had teased my husband similarly, only in our case it wasn't a serious doubt, it was a joke, we weren't even going around then, but what happened is, he called another guy friend of ours 'cute' and I + plus another girlfriend of mine turned to him, and said "hmmm, you find him cute ??? Are you gay" ....and we giggled a bit, he was beyond embarassed....hehe...

  8. @Anjali - The pink shirt is always a reason to be teased. I have only one friend who openly said "I don't care. I like the color". :)Looks like your hubby walked into the trap with the "cute" statement. :)

    @Sujatha - I will go through your link. At the same time. I like your dream. But I still have not figured out why the lady had to walk away. Were she not having as much fun as us(me visiting those places and you reading about it)? By the way, if you start looking around for travel deals, you might be able to get something for next year for a Paris trip with your family. :)
