Reading Between The Lines

This is just a funny conversation that happened between me and my friend. Sometimes when people write about themselves in profiles, it's not so clear what they are looking for. So, to avoid reading too much into something, I look for a second opinion and this is one such case where I asked a friend for her opinion and it made me laugh.

Me: What does this mean? "Someone who is not looking to compete with her spouse but who wants to facilitate a family oriented lifestyle. Someone who values making her life and her husband's life easier."

Friend: i think it means someone who wants to work with their spouse to provide a better life for them both

Me: *thinking*

Friend: by sitting at home and making the house comfy for him

Me: LOL

Friend: i think this person secretly wants a pretty slave but is making it sound better

Me: haha

Hope no one takes her seriously though. And I have taken her permission before posting this. But I too, found the wording a bit strange and felt the person should've been a bit more clear.

I agree, that's how some people end up having a messed up relationship.

This is probably going to make me sound really weird... but every now and then I like hitting up shaadi.com and browsing through profiles for humor's sake.

And shaadi.com ALWAYS delivers ;P
'i belong to jatt sikh family... i have 20 kile land... i have done b. a. ....'

I wish *I* had 20 kile of land :'( Maybe then I would be married too.

lol, I agree. Some profiles are very entertaining. At times, I feel I'm being rude but then you come across guys looking for a "beutifull gurl with good hert" and you can't help but laugh. And in the category where they write about themselves, it occasionally says, "tell u latter". Makes me wonder if these people are just passing the time looking at girl's pics.

You can always consider putting up your profile and trying out your luck. You might not need a 20 "kile" of land. :P
