Men Men Manly Men11:54 AM
For the longest time I have maintained my view that I like the 'quiet-serious-sorta-men' [QSSM] who only talk when they can 'actually' improve the silence. They, in my opinion, have a certain mystery and charisma attached to them. Mind you, I do not mean the boring-with-attitude-kinds but silent-with-brains-kinds. Although, I am well aware that this is a highly debatable area 'coz while girls like guys with brain, they do like to laugh as well! These are like two bi-polar qualities, hard to find in the same person.
While I still stand by that silence is golden, nonetheless this past week has been a revealation. QSSM do not make good arm-candy! (*wink*) No really, let me elaborate. While a teenager or a girl in early 20's might be drawn to such men (Or may be not, and I am the only freak who did!) but as you grow up (finally!) you would discover that you need friendly-socially-compatible-men to enjoy life!
Enter: Husband! He is an absolute opposite of a QSSM! He loves to talk and intereact with all. He is friendly and gets along with almost everyone, of any age. And his this quality is such a BOON for me! The ignorant-me is only realising this now. Everyone we meet loves him and half of my own family & friends prefer him over me (and I love that!). So I guess, what I am trying to say is that I am just-about-ready to wave Goodbye! to QSSM 'coz I have realised that it's the fun-and-friendly husband, who I actually prefer. [I'll silently continue to admire the QSSM, 'coz they do have their own advantages :P]
The other day at lunch my friend Anubha said and I quote, "Everyone finds their fit!" So true. Everyone does. [ ... and if they don't they adjust and make it fit!]
