Person: Why are you still single?
Me: I am still finding my perfect match! (Because I don’t have anything else to say.)
Person: Seriously? There are like 6 billion people on this planet, and you don’t like anyone yet?
Me: I am still finding that special someone with whom I can actually connect. (Now desperately wanting out of this conversation)
Person: You know what I read recently that everyone of us has 1.5 million potentially perfect matches out there.
Me: (Staring. Not speaking. Thinking. Questioning myself. Thinking exactly what have I been doing?)
Person: Listening? 1.5 million!!!
Me: Uuuummmmm, but you know what I am pretty sure that among those 1.5 million people no one will come above books to me 😀 (What better way than a little bit of humor, to literally end this.)
Person: Rolls his eyes at me.
Me: (But really 1.5 million? And yet, somehow I manage to ruin my relationship with everyone.)
PS: The above little information of the ratio of perfect matches; was shared by the Australian relationship experts Barbara and Allan Pease, at the Times Litfest in Delhi. (My source of information is the newspapers)
