Having observed the dating scene in KL very closely in the last 4 years when I was single, I came to realise ... what a huge bunch of lechers KL men can be.
With women reportedly outnumbering the males 8 : 1 in KL, I guess they are spoilt for choice so one can't blame some for enjoying life as the village bicycle. But it left a very bleak outlook for my romantic future. I had limited options open to me ...
Option 1 : Get into a relationship with a KL guy, who's sophisticated, romantic and possibly charming but accept that he's going to cheat on me at least once in our lives together. (I just betta not find out bout it, and he'd betta not bring nuthin' home from whichever ho he's doin' - otherwise I'll bust a cap in his ass)
Option 2 : Build up as many hobbies as I can so I can stay single, do whatever I want and forget about getting married.
Option 3 : Get into a relationship with a nerd, who'll never cheat on me but wears pocket protectors, pays more attention to his boy toys than to me, says all the wrong things at all the wrong times and most likely be bore the hell out of me in 3 months.
Seems that fate decided to take the decision out of my inept, single-for-a-lifetime hands and dealt me some cards from deck number #3.
I'm dating a self-proclaimed nerd. And I love the bugger to death.
None of my predispositions about the nerd race held true with this one (except for the toys part) and he says things that make me feel amazing. The best part is, it's not out of some stupid movie (he hasn't seen that many) or book he's read. He's too innocent (or nerdy?) for subterfuge and flattery - so what he says, he means.
A couple of months back, he came to me looking a little pensive. He was thinking about us, and a random situation had popped into his head : "What if he was suddenly sent 10 years back into the past?" Assuming that he had all his memories of the future, but he was now given a chance to relive his life 10 years into the past.
Now, most people would be delighted at the opportunity and would start spouting whimsical rhetoric about how they'd do this differently, say that differently, choose different paths etc... basically revised actions that can undo past regrets, land a better job or a chick with bigger boobs etc... all to improve their current future.
But ... what he told me was his first reaction was panic. Because he would have to remember every move ,and replicate every single decision he's ever made in the last 10 years ---- to ensure that it eventually lead to the circumstances that allowed him to meet me again in the future.
If you know the story of how we met, or should I say, DIDN'T meet - you'll know why this statement is not just romantic hogwash.
It was the most fucking romantic thing I've ever heard in my entire life.
Sob. Never expected that from a self-proclaimed nerd.
So girls, go out there and bag one. They're the best.
