Not all Lebanese girls are looking to marry the first guy they hook up with. But guys these days truly believe that behind that cool exterior, every girl in the bar is on the hunt for a solitaire. Of course eventually we are all looking to settle, the key word here is eventually, surely that is not the first thing that comes to our minds when a good looking guy offers to buy us a drink. I say this because lately I’ve noticed that men are really flattering themselves. Some guys claim all girls have a marital hidden agenda.
Sally has dated many guys but not in a town bicycle kind of way, she has a great reputation, she’s a hard worker and a genuinely nice person. She thinks perhaps she’s too picky, I think she’s just setting good standards for herself- she knows what she wants. Most of her boyfriends have met her parents. Her parents don’t necessarily view them as boyfriends, but rather as friends of Sally, so really it’s not a big deal at all for her to bring them home.
She’s been dating Mark for a couple of months now. Her parents were throwing a Sunday get together in their Zgharta mountain house for some of their close friends and family. Sally invited Mark to come along. As soon as the words left her mouth his face began to change into all sorts of colors. He then blurted out the words that any girl dreads to hear
“Don’t you think it’s a little too soon for me to meet your parents?”
“It’s just a Sunday lunch.”
“ Ya, Sally I know, but I don’t want you or your parents to get the wrong idea”
“And what idea could that be?”
“You know, that this is serious or something”
She broke up with him right there and then. Here’s the thing, Sally really didn’t know where her relationship with Mark was going and she wasn’t even trying to find out. But the fact he bluntly said there was no future for them made her feel like she was just wasting her time. Making plans to wed a man after a couple of months is surely hasty, but knowing that a man you’re dating doesn’t even consider you in his future is a big slap to any girls ego. Maybe I’m biased but I think Mark had it coming. Do you agree?
