Making The Right Call


I don’t know how to tell you this without hurting your feelings, but since it’s got to come out some day or the other, I’ll just say it as it is.

*deep breath*

It’s over. We’re over. I’ve been dropping hints for the past three months to try and make this very moment less painful for both you and me, so I sincerely hope this news isn’t coming out of the blue.

For what it’s worth, I’m sorry. Sorry about ending this at a time when things have been pretty peaceful between us. I know we’ve not had any major problems recently, but that’s sort of why I’m doing this now. Another breakdown is inevitable, you know that. I don’t want us to wait until that moment to sort things out and eventually leave each other in an ocean of anger and bitterness. I want us to part on good terms. I want us to cherish the good times we had together, because let’s face it – we did have quite a few.

You know, speaking of good times, I remember seeing you for the very first time in China Town. It was love at first sight – you were everything I’d ever dreamed of. I remember thinking you were way out of my league, so you can imagine my surprise when things turned out the way they did. I was ecstatic! You were mine, my very first, and I couldn’t have asked for anything more.

My brother wasn’t very happy. I think he knew from the get-go that we weren’t meant to be and even stated as such, but when I argued against it, he left it at that. The darling that he is, I think he wanted me to come to that conclusion by myself, without being forced. I wish now that I had listened to him – it would’ve saved you and me both two years of misery.

I might have been too ecstatic about our fresh new relationship to see at first, but looking back now, I realize that we were flawed from the very beginning. I can’t remember the number of times we went to see someone to get help. To fix things. It always seemed to work, and then a month or two later, things were back to square one. We never seemed to make any progress. There even came a point when our unsteady relationship started affecting my relationship with my friends. I don’t ever want something like that happening again, and if I stay with you, I don’t think I can guarantee that.

So it’s time for me to let you go. I’ve found another, and we’ve been getting along really well so far. I want you to know that I’m not doing this to hurt you in any way. I just need to be in an uncomplicated, friendly relationship right now. You were my very first, and for that I will always love and remember you. But it’s time to move on.

So, goodbye. It’s been … an interesting two years. I won’t ever forget you, and I wish you all the very best for the future. *muah*



Dear Readers,

Don’t be scandalized – I haven’t dumped my boyfriend. Erm, actually… I don’t have one at all. These are the “sweethearts” I was talking about – my ex (left) and my current darling (right). Aren’t they precious? šŸ˜€

*crickets chirping*

… I just have low expectations, alright? šŸ˜

    #MG,I figured you must’ve guessed as soon as I asked you for the phone pictures! So much for the suspense! :PAnd don’t worry, you had a good reason to let go of your old phone. You found a better looking one! Superficiality is in, baby! :P#Soleil,Hee, that was what the post was meant to make you believe! šŸ˜› And yeah, I like the flippy sound it made too, but I think it was eating up too much of my battery. I guess you can’t have your cake and eat it too. :/And merci for the welcome! :D#Mr and Ms Iyer,Heh! First the boyfriend, then the break-up. It’ll be a long time before either happens, don’t worry! :P#Narayan,Aww, RIP Narayan’s phone! And welcome, new sexy girlfriend! :PAll the Sony Ericssons in the shop I went to were too highly priced, so I settled for good ol’ Nokia. Glad to say it’s working just fine so far! šŸ˜€ *touch wood*And please lah, soaps and me? Pfft. *quickly switches off Bold and the Beautiful on TV*#CS,Hee! Like I told Soleil, that’s what you were supposed to believe, so I’m glad it worked! I can’t take all the credit though. To give credit where it’s due, the idea came from Sayesha’s optician post. That one was hilarious! :D(Arg, I can’t seem to link it here. Just go to her blog, type in “optician” in the search bar, and look for the post called “For your eyes only”. It’s fab! :D)And yup, ringtone! I’m so glad! Nokia Club, alright! šŸ˜€

    Brilliant!! It really DID seem like you were talking about a boyfriend you had dumped! I’m glad you have a nice phone now.. and you can have the ringtone you want šŸ˜€ And as Soleil said, welcome to the Nokia club! šŸ™‚

    Looks like you watched quite a lot of soaps yesterday…..

  6. Narayan August 28, 2007 / 7:43 pm

    Hope your old phone doesn’t commit suicide like mine… Mine just sorta snuffed it!

  7. Narayan August 28, 2007 / 7:41 pm

    Well, you dumped your old friend.. I lost mine!!!! BOO HOOO!!! She’s now six feet under….. But I have a far better girlfriend now, and she is much sexier… :DI went for a sony ericsson k750i.. a real good deal for 9k… though should have come down south..u can get it for 8k… I’ve still got the old nokia BL5 batteries though. Poor thing šŸ˜¦

  8. Mr and Ms Iyer August 28, 2007 / 5:42 pm

    You cajoled me into some kind of real breakup! Glad it wasn’t so! Good one!

  9. soleil August 27, 2007 / 11:50 pm

    Brilliant!!! It actually sounded like your ex-phone was a real person! And yes, I must say that that phone was affecting our relationship. Tsk tsk. But I did like the tone that sounded when you flipped it open. I think that’s what I’ll miss the most. Oh and one more thing, welcome to the Nokia Club! šŸ˜€

    this is why we keep our posts a secret till we publish! To keep the suspense šŸ˜› šŸ˜› I knew it was about ur phone right from the beginning!!!!!!I bet u lead loads of people to believing u were talking about some SO! U and ur phone seem to have quite the relationship! Weird eh, the relationship that we have with our phones can be described in such a humanised form.Hey… wait a sec! If we can describe our relationship with our phones like this, then i had no valid reason to let go of my old phone!!! It was perfectly alright!!!! šŸ˜ šŸ˜ :|*crickets chirping*ahem ahem…. great post! šŸ˜€ :”>
