The Boy Friend

Diary Entry – 32

When your friend starts acting weird, there is usually only one reason for that. They have a boy friend. When Lulu (name changed) started acting weird, I did not know why. Lulu and I were far from being best of friends but we used to talk to each other a lot and I would like to assume that that was enough for us to be more than mere acquaintances. Then she started acting weird and a few weeks later, I learn from one of my friends that she has a new boy friend.

I first thought it must have been something I said, but I learnt that her other male friends were not getting any special treatment either, so I just let it pass thinking she will come around when her senses return. Three months later, my friend tells me that she put her facebook status which hinted she was going to get married to that boy friend of hers. Dear lord, we thought J Lo (Jennifer Lopez) was crazy. If you do not understand what I am talking about, note how J Lo is getting married with a different man in each magazine cover.

I did not believe my friend when he told me Lulu put a facebook status that suggested she was going to get married and so I wanted to go check this out myself.When I went to her facebook page to confirm what he said, I realized I was not there in her friends list. You may be arch enemies with someone in the real world but they will still be your friends in facebook. Some of my friends got deleted from the friends list by accident and I thought this case was no different. But when I tried to add her back, I couldn’t. So I talked to her –

Me: Hey! Did you delete me in facebook?

Lulu:  No Abhi. Why will I do such a thing?

Me: Lol. Maybe your boy friend hacked your account and deleted me or something. :D

Lulu: No he wont do anything like that. You don’t know him.

Me: Mmmm. I am sorry if I said something wrong. I was just kidding. Your boy friend doesn’t have your passwords rite?

Lulu: Yeah he does. I gave them to him.

Me: WTF?

Lulu: What is wrong with that?

Me: What is wrong with that? What is wrong with YOU? My god. He gets to access your entire personal life? You don’t have any privacy at all.

Lulu: It is all about trust da. Me giving my password shows how much trust I have in him and gives him reasons to trust me.

Me: Oh yeah? So you trust him enough to not misuse it and take control of your life.

Lulu: He will not misuse it in anyway abhi.

Me: I sure hope for your sake he doesn’t. But add me back in facebook. I am not able to add you.

Lulu: Lol I will do it in the night. Facebook seems to have a lot of bugs ever since Google brought in Google+ :D. We should complain.

Me: Lol yeah I guess.

The next day

Lulu: I am really sorry. You were right. My boy friend read some of our chat and felt insecure. He blocked you in facebook. I think he gave report abuse also. That is why you are not able to add me.
Me: WHAT? He gave report abuse because I am your friend? HOW IS THAT ABUSE?

Lulu: I am sorry.

Me: How can you put up with this guy? He doesn’t even trust you.

Lulu: He trusts me very much. You don’t know him.

Me: He trusts my ass. Jealousy I understand. But blocking your friends from facebook? :x.

Lulu: You don’t know him. He is not like what you think. He must have thought you were like all guys - a jerk.

Me: If he trusted you so much when you gave him your password, why will he find the need to go through your Gtalk Chat history?

Lulu: He trusts me okay. He just gets very jealous. He doesn’t even like other guys looking at me. He is very possessive.

Me: WHAT? Is he going to make you wear a purdah then?

Lulu: Hehe. No abhi.

Me: Sheesh Lulu don’t you see that your boy friend is everything you women have been fighting against in the last century? I know a feminist who will shoot you down with a machine gun for making him your boy friend.

Lulu: He makes me very happy da. He is like this because he loves me and I love that about him.

(What can I possibly say when she loves that?)

Me: Hmmm. For your sake I hope I am wrong. If you live happily ever after like Cinderella, I will be very happy. BUT, if you break up with him, please add me back in facebook.

Lulu: Okay. I am sorry again. There is nothing I can do. Bye.

Six months later

New Friends Request

Lulu: Abhi!

Me: Hey Lulu. I guess your boy friend finally started trusting you more huh?

Lulu: My boy friend is an asshole.

Me: (Did I not tell you? :D) Oh! What happened?

Lulu: He cheated on me.

Me: Oh you poor thing. :D

Lulu: I dumped him but he keeps stalking. I want it to stop. Tell me how to change my passwords abhi. Tell me FAST.

Aah poor girl.. these annoying stalking guys freak me out.. U just CANNOT put up with them,, I hope she realizes her mistake and well never again hooks on to people like this. I wouldn't share my pass man. if he trusts he, he'd understand the need for privacy too, right? :P

P.S. Sorry came after a long time here.. Hope you're doing good da :)

Krishna Sruthi Srivalsan said...

Hahaa!I simply never could understand people who gave away their passwords just cos they were in a relationship! Liked the way you compared it to the progressive stages in J Lo's love life :D

Mishilicious Mishi said...

rofl...Oh My God The poor thing! you know what bus issilie we girls are called the Dumb ones when it comes to the emotional drama..that poor girl got so over-whelmed by the level of possession shown by that guy that she totally forgot to ask about his passwords:p or she would not be in this situation..
but on a serious note, asking for your passwords is too much!!! I hope your Friend gets someone better this time:-)

Sahana Rao said...

I was initially put of by the magazine covers pics u have put in the post, I thought it is abt some political article or something. Then, I just scrolled and had fun reading ahead!
LOL Man! That was a hilarious post!

Atrocious Scribblings said...

Seems very familiar, My roomie's Gf picks me of all people to have the exact same conversation about him.

Just like you've mentioned in your post, he has been guilty of going through and monitoring her chats and instant messages, but has never deleted a friend, he does the crime with finesse you know :P.

Nirati said...

Hahahahahahaaa. Now a days all couples do that.
I have his password id, he knows mine but we never use :P
I used it once when my a/c was deactivated and I gave him mine to delete one photo.
If there really is trust,why check up.. no?
Poor silly girl :p


i guess we have discussed this sometime in our leisure too in my 12*10 room...lolz :x

The Damned Writer said...

I swear, I have such specimens in my circle of friends too...
they fail to realise that they have control over their relationships too n act like'pathivratas' already!

Way too much irritation for the sane friends to handle, yeah! n true, sometimes you need to let them make mistakes and learn it the hard way!

Good one :)

haroon said...

i dont understand why girls who have "sixth sense " fall into these "trusting traps " where they give even facebook passwords to boyfriends . And the worst part is they start drifting away from their good ol friends

KP said...

ha ha..! good one.. :) I guess she learnt her lesson.. but what is with J lo?

Spaceman Spiff said...

:D :D
Oh wow! Brought back such a sense of deja vu. I never used to share my password, but my phone often used to go through a security check. :P

Megha Sarin said...

My god! I can understand. How people change with just a blow of wind. It happens everywhere.
But it is unacceptable. Good she learnt. No girl should allow anyone to suffocate her individuality. PERIOD.

Miss D said...

Totally new-follower-worthy stuff. And here you have a brand new reader in me who's nodding her head and lol-ing all the way!

Kirklops said...

I read this elsewhere but is kinda apt here. "Twitter makes you like people you haven't met and Facebook makes you hate people you know in real life." ... Looks like FB added 2 more "haters" in your life.

The Narcissist said...

haha I havent liked anybody I met in twitter though :D

The second part however is so very true :D
