I showed a nice, romantic, mushy message sent by J to my younger sis. And you know what? Where a normal girl would have ohhed and aahed over it, she made a weird face with an expression that said, ’yeah right, whatever, how tacky’. That’s when I knew she required help.
Its not that she is not romantic. But I guess she is very skeptical. She’ll analyze and dissect everything romantic a guy says to her. Okay let me give you an example.
If suppose some guy likes her and he says, ‘You are looking pretty today’. The first thing that will probably come to her mind will be, ’yah right, the way you say it everybody’. Sarcasm personified.
So I explained to her the state she is in and that she has no romantic future if she continues to be this derisive. And I think she got the point. She asked me to give her a Mills and Boon book to read. Ha…as if that was going to help. I didn’t have any anyway. So I asked her to read Twilight, the love story of a normal girl and a vampire. Apparently she didn’t like the language in the book (it’s good by the way; I don’t know what put her off). So I gave her another one I love. Suzanne’s diary for Nicholas – James Patterson. I remember crying throughout the book.
But yeah, reading a novel ain’t going to help, right? Any suggestions for my sister?
