Love on Facebook!!!!

Ever seriously thought about this….Are we really on such a big time generation leap and so very technologically developed….that now even the most beautiful feeling in the world….LOVE…has to rely on social networking…..Gone are the days when pigeons  were messengers of love….Now the latest trend is get committed on YAHOO MESSENGER:P…..

Ahem….Whenever I think about this….I feel that we human beings are on the verge of becoming robots….If the current scenario continues….Soon enough we might be romancing gadgets instead of live human beings….So, actually how and when did this happen….Can we do anything to stop the human race from becoming emotional wrecks…Lets see….

1) The first and foremost problem which comes into the scene when a guy wishes to propose to the “Girl of His Dreams”….is  literal insecurity….not about her answer…But about himself (This happens more often if you are unfortunate enough to fall for the college bombshell)…..The guy will scrutinize and keep thinking of all the ways to make his proposal so exciting that the gal cannot deny it….But in all this thinking process….Some other guy will walk away with the cake:P….So,actually social networks like Facebook solve this problem outright….You can just make your profile interesting,add up things about yourself that may not be even remotely close to the REAL YOU….wins the gal within record time…..

2) The second reason for the popularity of these sites is the social rise that they give to your quite bruised status….You might be all time loser in reality but on Facebook…You become over-night Star….Gals die to meet you…while in reality even the gal next door would not care to look at your face for hell’s sake….

3) You can actually get hooked up with anyone who might be miles away…..Chances are that you might even fall in love with them…..Dream about marriage,kids and having secure future for both of you….Voila,at times all of this planning happens within just one week of interaction:P (No wonder India’s population is on Rise)….

These are just some of the many reasons of why we are so badly hooked,booked and cooked up with Facebook…..It defines our life and makes us wonder if we can really survive without are online virtual IMAGE….Ok,so lets burst some bubbles about the latest trends of falling in “Love on Facebook”

1)   The concept of sweet old “Puppy Love” is today out of date….The sweet nothings….the promises….the long wait for each other after separation and then the joy and ecstasy of meeting up with your LONG LOST LOVE….How can you ever experience all this on social site….I mean fine…you can chat and know about the person….But you can never be sure that the person you are talking to is real or imposter….There are so many fake profiles on Facebook…..So why take a chance and wound your little heart….Puppy Love may be out of date and not in sync with today’s generation like Facebook is….But there are less chances of you getting your heart broken if you know that the person you are falling for….is real….and will hold onto You forever and forever…..(never let you fall:P)

2) The next thing is why to create a fake image of yourself just to impress someone….Why can’t we be the “ORIGINAL”…..If one has to fake things to gain Love….then how can that Love be true…if foundation is on lies….How will the relationship sustain….Some day….Some how that person will know the Real You….So then why take the risk of becoming a imposter for that one….Whom you love the most…..If the person truly loves they are bound to accept you with your Good and Bad qualities….If they can’t….then be happy….because You just saved yourself all that pain and heartache…..Which is bound to happen once the other person finds out the truth about you…..Let your Love know the real person that you are…..That spells a stronger relationship…..

3) Last but not the least….Your gal will never be bothered about what your social status on Facebook is or how you sound to the world….The only things that matter to her are your love and affection…which but obvious can never be shared on Facebook….Here’s a complete list of things that your gal might just expect…but would never ever say so….

Actually talk to her…. Share secrets with her…. Give her your jacket….Kiss her slowly….Hug her….Hold her…Laugh with her….Invite her somewhere….Hangout with her and your friends together…. Smile with her…. Take pictures with her……When her friends say “I love her more than you”, deny it. Fight back and hug her tight so she can’t get to her friends. It makes her feel loved….Always hug her and say I love you whenever you see her…..Kiss her unexpectedly…. Tell her she’s beautiful….Tell her the way you feel about her.

Open doors for her, walk her to her car – it makes her feel protected, plus it never hurts to act like a gentleman….Tell her she’s your everything – only if you mean it….If it seems like there is something wrong, ask her – if she denies something being wrong, it means SHE DOESN’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT – so just hug her….. Make her feel loved…..DON’T cheat on her….Take her ANYWHERE she wants….Text message or call her in the morning and tell her have a good day  and how much you miss her…..Be there for her whenever she needs you, and even when she doesn’t need you, just be there so she’ll know that she can always count on you…. Hold her close when she’s cold so she can hold you too….. When people diss her, stand up for her…. Look deep into her eyes and tell her you love her….When walking next to each other grab her hand…..Call or text her at night to wish her sweet dreams….Comfort her when she cries and wipe away her tears….Take her for long walks at night….Always remind her how much you love her…..

So,friends….Think about it….Romance is something that is tied up to the heart….don’t tie it to your computer’s keyboard…Let your computer be used ONLY for the official work….and go and find out that one person…who is just made for you….Share the most precious moments in your life with your Love….Gift her flowers (although we don’t mind diamonds at times)….You can never do that on Facebook…..Trust me all you can do is sent her farmville and cityville requests and add to her anger……Fall in love….IN REAL!!!!!

Most of us have experienced fear at some point of time in our Life…Some have a fear for water and are called “Hydrophobic”…Some fear heights and are called “Acrophobic”…The list is endless and so are the many dimensions of fear…There might no Man alive who didn’t have fear…Because from my point of view…”Everyone should have HEALTHY fear”…Now you might think as to how fear can be healthy…Let me illustrate some incidents from my Life which have taught me to respect fear(and also made me learn how to overcome them as well)…

But before that,We should know what this word “Fear” actually means???….According to the Dictionary,Fear has been defined as “An emotion experienced in anticipation of some specific pain or danger (usually accompanied by a desire to flee or fight)”….Now I really don’t know about the flight thing….But I’m very sure of the FLEE thing!!!…Because most of the times,I find the FLEE option very enticing to use…instead of facing the fear…Until….Of course,Some day I’m left with no other option but to FACE IT….That to….Headstraight:(

So here is list of all the Fears that I faced in my Life…On how I overcame them…How’s the “Healthy Bug” involved-
1) The Fear Of Fire-
The biggest possible reason of why I’m very bad cook…is my Fear for Fire….which is called as Arsonphobia(at times I feel the phobic terms used for each Fear is more frightening than the fear itself:D)…Actually,I didn’t have first hand experience of this phobia till I entered my Chemistry Laboratory in school…We had to light a matchstick for an experiment and that was when…I was hysteric,because Fire would drive my nerves crazy….Even after my arduous efforts at trying to light matchstick…without getting my fingers burned in the process…I failed miserably…But I did not have the option to stay for all my lifetime with this phobia…Because we had chemistry practicals exams in the next week…A week’s notice!!!!

Way of Escape-So I did what I always did for my Exams…Made my Mom sit with me and tried to light as many matchsticks as I could…Trying to get control on my shivering hands…I won’t say that I succeeded much at that…But at least,I learned how to light matchstick,by getting better control on my nerves(making sure that I did not blast the lab)…After all these years,now that I have to use fire in lab on daily basis for all microbiological work…I don’t get any goosebumps as such…I’m not still very good cook…But at least,I can cook something decent enough without setting the kitchen on fire…

Healthy Bug- It’s good that as kid,I was afraid of fire…Because I’m such naughty kid..that I might have just set the gas stove on for fun…But the fear persisted me from at least going anywhere near the gas stove til I was old enough to know the consequences…Thanks to my fear…I’m still alive(so are others at my home!!!)

2) The Fear For Crawling and Creeping Creatures on Planet Earth-
This fear stems from my absolute hatred for all creatures that creep and crawl(including cockroaches,lizards,millipedes,centipedes and rats)….Every creatures that drives me up the wall…shouting and screeching…The phobia is called Entomophobia (this phobic term is at the most in sync with the fear itself)…
I had mostly leave the job of driving these things out to my Dad…who always felt that it was his birth right to kill these pests and make our Home…Pest free Zone!!!

I would not have the dare to face these creepy crawly pests…Until I had no other option left…I was alone in my Hostel room for study holidays…That was when,One fine evening,I found my nightmare…Right in my cupboard…Siting there in royal posture like King!!!….A large Garden Lizard!!!….I freaked out like anything…I had stayed in harmony for many years with lizards at home…Keeping as much distance from them as possible….I would have left this one as well…But it was happily chewing into my food supplies…and I was not particularly excited at having Garden lizard as a room mate…


(Frankly this is not my Dog…I just downloaded this picture…Because the Lizard was just as big as the one on this Dog’s back)

Way Of Escape-Then I had to do the inevitable…Drive Mr.Bossy out all on my own…I took the only help available then…Broomstick…Tried to drag it out from my cupboard…But being garden Lizard…Not only was it more Big in Size…But also more sticky…So it won’t give up easily…Already,I was sweating like I was in Hell(thinking of the possibility that what if this beast jumped on me)…So I dragged it with all the force that I could apply…At last,it came off…So I just pushed it off the window and shut it closed…So that no garden lizard again found its way into my cupboard(most importantly near my food supplies:( )

Healthy Bug-It’s good that I was afraid of lizards…Because that day after driving it out…I realized one more time…That until You FACE Your fear…It is going to haunt you all your life…Making you a Big time Phobic…Fear can only be overcome By seeing it eye to eye (although I won’t say that seeing lizard’s eye is such a good option)….But at least,now I won’t stand having those crawling creatures in my room…Although….Of course,I still don’t have my Dad’s guts to kill them….But I guess there are more peaceful ways to survival:)….

3) FACEBOOK OBSESSION SYNDROME (FOS)-
This age has seen the rise of technology…and bigger part of it was associated with Communication…In good old days…The only ways were letters,money orders (love letters being strictly reserved for pigeons)…and most recently Emails…But progress bought with it a massive phenomenon…Which is called as “FACEBOOK”….Anytime you login…You will always find your friends there…The only problem being that many of them may be people whom you haven’t met in you whole life….But now Facebook has become more than way of Life..It has become an ADDICTION….The worst thing being…that I’m big time Addict!!!

Despite the fact,that I’m well aware of the ill effects that FOS causes like any other dangerous disease…In fact I can very well see the signs and symptoms,which I had like to share with you all-
1) Sudden urge to login and check news feed(as if the world would end and you won’t even know about it,if you didn’t check the feed)
2)Updating your status every hour and then checking out,if anyone has commented on your status,almost 60 times.
3)Chatting with friends almost for whole day(But when you meet them personally…all you have to say is simple Hi or Hello)
4)Posting all your family trips pictures and waiting for comments(until some one from your family sees them…and holds you responisible for spoiling their “VIRTUAL” image on facebook!!!)

Now you all must be wondering about what is fear associated with Facebook…Well..the fear is of having the stigma of not being “NET-SAVVY AND OLD FASHIONED”…if you are not on Facebook…Then you are most backward and illiterate person on Planet Earth…To be in sync with recent trends and to get yourself called as “all knowing”…You have to part of FACEBOOK…

Way Of Escape-There is absolutely no escape from this fear…Until we get control on our mindset…We have to accept the fact that being on social website doesn’t improve our social image…But damages it all the more…Because all those futile hours before computer….Could be properly utilized somewhere else…Instead of being stuck online with friends…Why not make that extra effort…Just shut down that computer,catch up with all your friends OFFLINE…plan trip where you can experience the Real beauty of Nature and feel the touch of fresh breeze…than trapping yourself in this virtual world,which just keeps you far away from the real world…and the REAL lively people in it….

So…what would you prefer…Trekking in some Green forests like the one on the left or Going for walk on the beach with your loved one’s….or just keep on staring on the blank screen in between…I had prefer the Treks…What about you???

Healthy Bug-There is nothing good about this Fear…But if you overcome this,surely it will be good…I can’t say anything more about this…because I have myself not overcome this fear….The process still continues….But one day,I’m sure that I’ll will succeed in getting over this fear as well…Because living without a social network is obviously less scary than Fire and Lizards:P….When I can get over them….I can surely get over “Facebook Obsession Syndrome” as well….Hope you all will also be successful in overcoming all your fears….Because beyond that fear,There is the joy of satisfaction….That ultimately,You are no more PHOBIC!!!!
