Yesterday Babu messages me saying is dad wants to talk to me. Whhhhhhaaaatttt?
I’m good on the phone with strangers when it comes to business, but anything else is a whole other story!! Thankfully he didn’t put him on the phone, but he did tell me what he wants. He want to know (now) if we will be getting Married next year or not, so he can start looking for a bride if he needs to.
NEXT YEAR!!! No! I am not marrying him and committing to a life in his country only a few days after stepping foot on Indian soil next year, no way! I need to go there first, it won’t change how I feel about him, but India is harsh and I might not be tough enough to handle her! I have to be sensible, and I cannot commit to something until I am 100% comfortable with it. When I was 21 I was with boy who treated me bad, I wanted out, but I was too scared to stand up for myself, instead I moved out with him and made things a whole lot worse, it was awful, from that I learnt NEVER to do something unless you are completely comfortable with it.
I told him that next year we can get engaged, and should we do that I will marry him the following year, engagement as far as I am concerned is a commitment to marry so that should be enough reassurance for his dad hopefully?
Well, that was a day ago and it was only touched upon in passing, but i think the general answer was no! Another loggerhead situation then! I wander what will happen….maybe I should talk to Babu Snr myself after all?!
