All For Nothing

Caught the three bright words
blinking on my screen.
A dream come true
for every Gen Y teen!
"Let's meet up!",
he had finally asked out,
taking our online chat
to the next level date!

A squeal I gave,
and pressed an instant Yes.
Called up my bestie,
WhatsApped the rest.
Casual or formal, how should I dress?
Make a killer first impression
or play my aces at the date next?

Midnight blue was my look that evening,
With gleaming waxed legs and blow-dried hair
All eyes were on me, I could tell.
I squinted to find my fellow sitting in a corner.
The Yellow daffodils did get him a plus,
but the week old stubble made me
sashay right out in horror!

He could go on to tell the world
that I stood him up, but dude
at least have the decency to groom up!

#WillYouShave should be an important clause in the online dating community as well. And I am tagging my girls to take this campaign forward! ;) Shilpa,Shailaja, Nabanita, Manjulika, Swati and Red.

  1. hawwww.....why you do this to him? Hawwww
    You could have gifted him a razor no?!
    Kidding...all the best for the competition!

    1. Haha :) Thanks!
      N I know you'll have something to say on this, even if you like men with a stubble! ;)

  2. Very smartly written! I agree, he should have made a little effort :)

  3. He should have been told that only Big B looks good in an overgrown facial bush. A shaving kit would have been an apt gift .

    1. True! But why waste your money on a gift for him ;)

  4. Ahh one has to be well groomed especially on a date!

  5. Aha! That's a good one! It's a special date, he should have certainly made himself look good too!

  6. I have used these shoes on varied terrain (160 km asphalt and forest trails) adidas originals online for type fartlek workouts mainly in the weather that we know in Normandy during the fall: softness and moisture . adidas store I've also tested in competition on the Green Marathon Rennes, ran in three relays with Joƫlette the Challenge team, adidas factory outlet under a beautiful sun of Brittany.
