Diary Entry – 32
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 –
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.
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?
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.
Six months later
New Friends Request
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.
