Just because we met doesn’t mean we have to get married. We get the social pressures on you to be a “good wife and mother”, but you need to chill. The fact that we went out on a few dates or I told you I like you is most definitely NOT a marriage proposal. And remember: If you want to act all Westernized and shit, sex is part of the package.
Suffocation is another concept whereby this gets real old, real fast. Like everyone in the country post Jan25, he is just another Egyptian who claims – emphasis on claims – to understand politics.
As a matter of fact, here’s a little lesson on human nature: The more you keep pushing someone in a certain direction, the more they push back. Breathing room is a concept whereby I get a chance to miss you and want you. Ibrahim Makami is a professional business writer/editor and corporate communications specialist, who occasionally writes about Egypt and its more colorful aspects and whose realism is often confused for pessimism.
The fact that we’re in a relationship doesn’t mean we’re attached at the hip. Being together doesn’t mean we always have to be together. That’s like being a lawyer who’s exploited every loophole in the book to acquit his client, but decided to throw the case at the last second and tell the judge his client’s guilty.
On the topic of men and women and what each one wishes they could say to each other without throwing a tantrum and eventually breaking up: Here’s my two cents.
Well, trust me when I say, just like you don’t want random guys adding you on Facebook, we don’t want random women adding us on Facebook. During my time on Facebook, I’ve been added by quite a few women, yet I never threw a shit storm and sent “Why the hell are you adding me? Face it, Facebook has its perils as well – and a block button.
I seem to get this one a lot, usually during the early stages of conversation.
Well, honey, first of all you’re probably fishing in the wrong pond if these are the type of guys you manage to end up with, and, as far as perversion goes, the whole world is perverted in one way or another.
I get fashion and all that, but when I walk into a place and almost 90% of the women there are wearing leather boots, jeans and black tops, I’ll kind of brush you all off for the sake of someone who looks different. He doesn’t believe in moderation (it’s for cowards) and thinks the world will explode pretty soon.
