I hope you can have a sense of humor about when you're happily married inshaAllah.
A brother on THIS website (nice guy...don't know if he's still around), once tried to hook me up with a good friend of his who attended the same halaqa as he did...etc etc. Anyway, I really respect the brother in the middle, so after asking my parents, I agreed to looking at his "marriage profile" (which was an endless email that went on and on about himself and how cool he is). He also demanded I respond with a similar profile, and I sent a really funny one about my interest in water spiders or something. (I don't think he was amused).
Annnyyywaayyy... a few weeks later, we added each other on MSN. And he talked about himself for long spaces of time, when I would click on another window and start doing other things. He was intelligent. He was successful. He also met my parents' criteria of being urdu speaking, etc etc. But man he was soooooo boring and so full of himself (I'm the youngest person in my company to have become a partner! I'm the younngest person in the world to have (blank) certification...ENDLESS)
Anyhow, one fine day, he asked me for my picture. He sent me 3 of his, I sent him like the best one I had. He looked.... ok. Like he was ok looking, I wasn't horrified with his picture. Then he dissappeared.... for a MONTH.
And then I get an email: Sorry...I was sooooo busy. Yeah btw, I showed my mom the picture, and she said you're not physically up to par with me. We can still be friends though.
Just so you know, we're not friends anymore
But you know what... even though I didn't like him... I was shatterred. I felt soooo ugly for soooo long. And i realized it's not acceptable. Not for him to have been the jerk that he was, but for me to have felt that way about a guy I didn't even know, halfway across the world.
Btw: here's your memo -- it's not okay to accept rudeness from someone else.
