But, I was busy typing something from my mobile on to the search bar.
Profile ID: xxxxxx
Arjun. He had called me in my mobile that afternoon in my office and introduced himself.
He said he liked my profile in Bharat Matrimony and gave his profile ID telling me that if I was okay with his profile, he could ask his parents to speak to my parents.
After that talk, I felt nervous and at the same time wanting to see his face. He sounded soft and well mannered.
My heart was pounding fast. It seemed ages for the website to load.
And in a flash, his profile appeared on the screen
My sister who was standing nearby looked his profile closer and said,” Damn, he looks good but something is missing. Do you like him?”
For a moment, I was silent. Then I replied, “Yes, but those stubble…"
She chuckled, "Yes, It looks like he had a love failure or something.”
I pretend to be cross and said, “It does not mean that I hate stubble. It is not well trimmed to suit his personality.”
Suddenly, my mobile beeped and I saw a message from him, “Am I okay?”
Without a second thought, I messaged him. There was no reply. And I was blaming myself.
Next day, there was a reply from him asking me to see his profile again.
I rushed to my laptop. Arjun had updated his profile.
The well groomed face in the profile, without a word told that he was already in love with me. So am I.
----------------> Good Impression = Better chances for Arjun <----------------------
"An instance when a stubble came in the way of a man's chance to make a good impression."
