Ani's next

Ani has fallen prey ! He is in love and he showed all the classical symptoms. He called me up yesterday and shared with me the developments that have happened over the last few weeks. He chose the understated style that most guys would feel compelled to adopt when talking about such matters to another guy, but it was easy to discern the enthusiasm and excitement in his tone. I discovered how easy it is to participate in his happiness.The only downside I could see is that we stand to lose Ani to Hyderabad for good now. Congratulations and all the best my man, Ani!

Things seemed to have worked out perfectly for Ani. He avoids the uncomfortable frictions at home because the girl is from the same caste. And since this has happened when he has already decided that its time for him to get married, the commitment will take place while the inebriating influence of the hormones is still strong. He will have taken the plunge before he realises that choosing your mate is not an expression of independence, but the tightening of your leash.

I've never understood why guys don't feel able to talk about such things with other guys. I guess its the main reason I make friends with women much easier than guys. With my recent breakup I two of my female friends have been very supportive and helpful. I've told two of my male friends. One replied, "Ouch!" The other said, "Her loss." Not exactly supportive.

Anyway, best wishes to Ani. Not all leashes are bad.
