Time has changed!

My often depressed looking cousin was looking more depressed last week. He was wondering around without any purpose. Then open his cupboard, and started searching for something. After a while he was sitting in front of me looking inside in his wallet and counting money inside. I asked why he is so depressed and looking at his wallet in this way.

He said that few weeks back his girl friend’s friend got a latest mobile. I asked that what it has to do with him. He said that after having a look of that mobile, his girl friend is demanding for the same model as a gift on her upcoming birthday. The cell did cost pocket money of my cousin of five months (as he is a mere student so far).

I just tapped on his shoulders (as a person with light pocket is not supposed to more than that) and came out of his room.

So this is the mode of action of our relationships. There was a time when for a beloved a single rose presented with love and sincerity was more than everything. A lover spent couple of nights for writing a letter with a perfect description of the condition of his heart. And then time got changed. Letters were replaced by E-Mails and roses with costly gifts. Relationships develop themselves with a fast pace and they have their own requirement for their continuity .In case of my poor cousin, it is an expensive mobile set.Time has really been changed.

H M,

Don't we have to pay for progress?

Take care

I agree with Uncle J, we have to pay for progress. But then it is also about the understanding in between the partners.
My bf and I do not have the system of gifts at all. We do things for each other that really matter. Scrap books, Picture collages... those matter more to us than the expensive gifts.
And we both understand the importance of money and expensive gifts. So its more about understanding between the two than the gift factor.

nothing has changed that much...
only some ppl have decided to stick with the wrong..

i've got plenty of frnds who r just fine with not sharing their money with the partners and neither do their partners force them any such expenses... may be i'm in a lucky eniv... may be that's how a cpl should be ... or may be not.. i dunno...

yeah, it definitley have.. these days relationships are governed more by expensive gifts rather than true feelings of love..

Times certainly have changed and I often wonder if for the better after reading this story of your cousin. Give me a red rose any day---I'd treasure it. Thanks for your visit and please drop by again soon.

Had it been me.. I'd have left that girl there and then! 'coz that's not love! had she loved ur cousin, she'd hv shown some concern or wuld have been thoughtful! If u can think abt ur cousin being a mere student then she shuld have as well!

Wine and Words said...

What kind of chick demands a specific gift? Demands a gift at all? Especially if she knows her man does not have sufficient income? DUMP HER. Tell cousin I said so.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love having fresh eyes and listening ears.

Its sad when people have use money to prove how much they love somebody.
Please explain to your cousin that love is unconditional. It cannot be measured by how much u spend on someone
