I dont know why

Most people have the preconcieved notion that me, DipsC, is 'seeing' someone. I know I know, it really doesnt matter what they think, but well, it does matter to me! And especially when im such a relationship avoider, Im presumed to be comfortable and settled in a relationship with some guy...
Thats not it. Its also assumed that Im the kind who changes guys faster than I can change clothes.

And this is no new development. Im sick and tired of laughing it off and correcting people. This has been going on since the time I was of the age when ppl thought having a boyfreind was a possibility.

Who are people? My classmates...freinds (who used to think im hiding the fact from them, till it finally dawned on them it wasnt so) and in office my colleagues...and Oh! how can I forget those relatives?!

You know what the best part is? I do not...i simply do not understand the meaning of the sentence I get as a reply "Oh! really?! You really dont have a boyfrnd? How come? Cmon! Dont lie! But how come you dont have a boyfrnd?"!!!

What about me? Why me?

Tell me someone. Does the same happen to you too?

D...remember the talk we once had about how people "brand' others. And how you have problem with people who cant seem to decide where to place you?
Well..its all about that i guess. You potray an image of someone who's outgoing,and loves to socialize... hence the immediate conclusion.."iska to boy friend zaroor hoga"!!
When i was younger..."people" thought I was someone who would never talk to boys...and I would be the last person on this planet to have a boy friend.. ahem!! I guess you know better ;) :D

You mean people think u have em??
I've always wondered (like i told u over fone) what would be the sort of guy u would fall for. This implicitly states that I never for a moment believed u found anybody yet. Maybe cos as u say, you're more comfortable around guys.
I've got similar accusations in the past (not any more now)-when people simply wouldn't believe i didn't have a gal.

well, people expect u to confirm to certain stereotypes, especially if you are the outgoing happy go lucky kind of person that you are...Well i get asked the same, and i whet their appetite by sighing a lot and making a wistful face, you might try it sometime...

U lucky gal !!!
Gosh you lucky gal !! People really think that you have a boyfriend!!!

They'll fall on their faces if I ever tell them that I have a girl. They'll go "You REALLY have a girlfriend?? Come on !!!".

Jokes apart, I know it can be disturbing when people brand you as miss so-and-so. But you cannot change the way they think, so why even bother explaining!! Live your life on your own terms. It'll be an unnecessary effort to try and convince those people about your life and your lifestyle.

But how come you've become hyper all of a sudden?? Specially since you have been linked to guys ever since you could possibly have a boyfriend (your own words in the blog). So why worry about it now !!???

Re: U lucky gal !!!
:) now thats an astute question.
well, the post was inspired by irritation caused by repeated questioning by my new colleagues, in subtle ways. Not all of them, but some of them. Hence the irritation. To top it, day before yesterday evening I met a frnd after a long time, and (him being married) the conversation meandered to relationships, when the question arose. Two simultaneous days of such questions got my goat!
