OK, there is some stuff I have to get off my chest, and OKCupid
just doesn't seem to have an appropriate column/heading for it, so
this space will have to do...
I am looking for a woman (yes, a woman! Not a 'girl' or 'gal'!
Grow up!) who has more brains than beauty (although I
would most definitely be lying if I said that physical attraction
were not important to me!), but who hasn't allowed her talents to
go to her head. She should be able to inspire me to reach greater
heights & to learn new things in life - which may be a
tad difficult as I already know quite a bit, and am more
than capable of motivating myself...
Oh, and I am not willing to bear the responsibility of anyone's
child but mine. If you were naïve enough to 'love' him so much to
have a baby with him, and then were fickle-minded/indecisive enough
to divorce him, then you don't deserve me! (Unless, you lost your
husband to some tragedy. In that case, I empathise, and
So moms, thanks, but no thanks.
Although I do not judge a book by its cover, I almost certainly
will form an opinion based on its title (for example, if
you were to give me a book entitled "The psychological perspective
differences between males & females", I would most certainly
give it a try; but if you were to give me a book named "How to know
what Men think", I'd throw it in the trash, and scorn you for being
a moron.). So how is this seemingly non sequitur-ish tangent
relevant? Wait just a minute........
[So, ladies, fair warning: I am most certainly judging you by your
clothes, postures, silly poses, 'attitudes', quizzes/tests taken,
answers to the match questions, etc, as all of these give me some
clue to your psyche...
If you don't want to be branded an "idiot", well, then, stop being
I am quite picky/choosy/pedantic while making friends, and I have
quite a long 'hate' list reg. women which includes
*any tattoos (if you're willing to deface/defile your body in such
a manner, then please give me a miss -- and no, they do
not look good on anyone -- not
even that stupid butterfly/dolphin/flower/angel/humming
bird/Chinese or Kabbalah character which you thought was 'so cool'
in your drunken stupor, being egged on by your troglodytic sorority
[Clarification: I do not consider the following as make up: Lip
balm, moisturiser/hand lotion & its ilk, and, sun block/screen.
Almost everything else is make up (Yes, lip gloss is make
up; as is 'natural' or 'colourless' lipstick & nail paint! If
you really want it to be natural, why not let it
be natural?!).]. I can perhaps tolerate a bit of
kaajal or eye liner (not eye shadow - yes, I know the
difference!), but only if done very subtly.
*stilettos (or 2+ inch high heels in general);
*shiny or gaudy dresses;
*non-traditional facial & body piercings
--- (if you are so uncomfortable with your own self and/or
self-image that you have to go to such superficial extents
- like make up, high heels, tattoos, dyed hair, piercings etc - to
boost your self-esteem, or to stroke your ego, then we will most
certainly not get along, and hence, kindly do not waste my
time) --- ;
*having a shrill, high-pitched shrieking girly
*unnecessary/unwarranted/excessive swearing/gangsta talk esp. to
*use of Netspeak/Textspeak -- especially LOL(!) [minimal
use in SMS's is OK -- because, most of the time, there is a need to
save on characters used in order to save on money spent per
conversation; use in other messaging/emails is unacceptable
(standard/logical abbreviations/short forms are welcome); and I
shall puncture your jugulars & bleed you slowly if you actually
use these in real telephonic/face-to-face conversations].
Feel free to use emoticons though. :-) ;
*if you use words like "laters"and "anyways" (what the hell is
wrong with you!?!! It's SINGULAR, you moron!!);
*if you use the word "y'know", "hello" or "like" too much, and/or
inappropriately -- improve you bloody vocabulary!;
et cetera (I may keep adding to this list later as I remember more
stuff -- Oh boy, this is gonna be one loooong
**Smokers; females with alcohol issues; drug users (past or
current); goth chicks; feminists (not just the ultra/rad
bra-burners, even the lame plain Jane variety... Feminism is
over-rated, boring & stupid. Femininity is hot!); girly girls;
immature daddy's girls; evangelizing vegans; fat chicks (no, you're
not 'chubby'/'full figured'/'well-rounded'/'cuddly'/'Rubenesque';
you are FAT! And this is unhealthy.): piss off!
After a few failed attempts, I've learned to spell this out
clearly: I must mention that I am looking to work & settle in
India (not yet sure which part; but probably not
Delhi/Mumbai/so-called class-A cities); although I am not averse to
a short stint abroad [maybe a Fellowship sometime in the
UK/Europe/Japan/Canada (not the US!) - only time
It's not easy for someone in my profession to settle abroad at this
Also, I haven't yet decided whether I will settle in the
public/govt. sector or the private sector; that might take some
time -- the pros & cons of this can be maturely discussed with
the relevant people later on.
However, I am not going to allow anyone to emotionally blackmail me
on this. As it is people don't understand the difficulties honest
& well-intentioned doctors have to face in this
I am also averse to unduly prolonged long-distance or
cyber-relationships as these bring nothing but trouble &
In the end, I look forward to two grey heads juxtaposed in silent
& profound understanding.
Que sera sera & all that...
