If I were a guy, one of the things I might not stand would be pathetic girls.
My friend, Arra*, had always been a sensible, tough gal. At least that’s how I’ve known her. So, I was surprised when I learned that she fell madly and hopelessly in love.
As I heard it, she turned into the most overly jealous and possessive girlfriend of the 21st century. She would nag her boyfriend like crazy, but when the guy has had enough and try to break it off with her, she would drop on her knees and beg him not to go.
I think it’s kind of irrational and I never, in my wildest imagination, thought, she would turn out to be like that. But she did. Another proof that the only constant in this world is change. When I packed enough courage to ask her why she was like that, she flashed me with the bitterest smile I’ve ever seen and said she didn’t know. And that she was surprised herself when she ends up pleading and begging her boyfriend not to leave her.
Well, I can’t say it was love. I prefer to call it obsession. And I don’t like it a bit.
