From The Diary Of A Serial Monogamist

Hi! Before you judge me, you need to know what a serial monogamist is and does. Any single person who jives into a relationship (one at a time), in a religiously unswerving fashion, but only for a limited period of time is a serial monogamist. You can compare us to the limited bumper sale that Flipkart offers for every conceivable festival! We don’t cheat on our S.O.-s and that’s not where our commitment concern emerges from. The snag is in relation to how long we will keep our *sses parked in one relationship. Here are glimpses of my diary entries for the year 2015, when I dated 5 men (Referred as alphabets in the piece, because I don’t remember the names of two and thought it would be inconsistent otherwise!) 😛

I think A is cute. He may be the one. Told a classmate about the*feels* and she’s like “this is the 13th time in 2015.” It’s only the 6th day of 2015!!!

A and I have just started dating like a week back. So yay! *grin*

Feb 2, 2015

An insane thing happened today. A’s best friend turned up out of nowhere and was like “Remember me?” I couldn’t place him for a good 20 seconds after which I happened to glance upon his twisted toe nail and realized that we had dated for 5 and ½ days last summer!

A thought it was time we made it official. I thought it was time we broke up. Needless to say who won!

3 and 1’2 hours without dating has been pretty useless!  I don’t know what to do with my time…

D is my neighbour. He is single. He is decent. But most importantly, I have been alone for 18 hours now!

So, I thought we should go out for dinner. It was only when we were digging into our steaks that he brought up this unnecessary anecdote about one evening from our high school days when the two of us went for a movie and I had kissed him. Apparently, we dated for a fortnight. Tonight shall be the last I see him!

D came frantically looking for me at college and asked me why I wasn’t returning his calls. I told him that we had broken up, if he remembered!! His response: “But when did we start dating?” Blimey!!

J and I are back from our vacation. Oops! So J is this guy I met in my Spanish class and he is cute. I think he is the one! Why do I feel like I’m having a déjà vu all the time?!

J and I bumped into a classmate of mine when she asked how A was and if we were still seeing each other!!! What the f! Why can’t people stay a little updated about their friends! So I had to fill her up on A and D in front of J. We broke up!

S and I had a fab time at the games last night. Oh ya, so S is D’s younger brother! Before I started dating him, I was sure to ask him if we had gone for any movie and if we had kissed and dated for any number of days or hours. He said no and we were on! And people say I don’t learn from my previous relationships!

July 16, 2015

I called S, D by mistake. We are calling it quits!

August 17, 2015

1 month, 12 hours and 32 seconds without a date. The world feels so gloomy! I think I need to see a doctor.

“If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn't brood. I'd type a little faster.” This Isaac Asimov line, embraces my love for writing in the finest and most desperate way that it is and should be! I was tormented by the earnestness of the written word not very early in my journey. But once smitten, it has helped me devour life twice over; savoring the moment and indulging in its memories. As a flâneuse, I wander to understand the intricacies of human relationships. Realizing that, they are just different manifestations of the same feeling of love, has been my greatest learning. I seek to share its opulence through the words I type.
