Of course, back then, “online” consisted of IRC chat rooms on the IBM Mainframe that connected together the University systems across the state, as well as the online email and electronic bulletin board system that all of the college students used to stay connected to one another. I was painfully shy when meeting new people – bordering on some kind of clinical social anxiety disorder, I’m sure.
How I won my wife – It all started with her cell phone number My salient point is technology is a tool, not a replacement for an authentic tête-à-tête and interrelationship bonding in the real rather than virtual world.
It is the female nature to build trust and make you wait.
Therefore, mobile phones, the new virtual relationship venue, is not always quick and easy. Forget the high priced cell phone plans, get a mobile app like whatsapp, and hit the beaches from Gokarna to Varkala to meet girls in person.
I did not write it down but committed it to memory. I was careful to give her space and time and chose my words carefully.
The issue is ladies make you work for them, especially from a traditional country like India.
