Divorced? Wanna make frandship?
Posted by Kalpana
Divorceddoodling has a facebook page. Perhaps you are already friends with divorced, or you’ve become a fan.
There has recently been a long gap in divorced doodling’s internet presence – because she was busy with ‘other things.’ That’s beside the point.
When divorced went back to the facebook page she was intrigued to find many messages waiting for her. Quickly, she read through them, sure that they were full of nuggets of wisdom regarding divorce, or much painful sharing about the process.
Each message was about ‘frandship’. Allllll of them read something like this ‘send me your email id’, ‘ I am well settled and single’, ‘ Are you male or female?’ ‘ Check out my special collection of VERY private pictures’ – you get the drift?
All the men, yes, they were all men…all the Indian men, and yes again, they were all Indian men (with one exception) had made the erroneous assumption that divorce and dating are interchangeable terms. You are divorced, ergo you must be looking for a partner. How simple. Right? There couldn’t be anything else that you could possibly want.
Why, when I am writing about a serious subject like divorce would I be bombarded by a host of sex hungry perverts who think that a divorced woman is the answer to their wet dreams. Frustrated people who have no idea how to start or sustain a relationship use the anonymity of the internet to stalk and harass women who they think are potential recipients of their spurious fantasies. UGHHHHHH.
This is the reality of life in India for a divorced woman. Divorce IS synonymous with dating, or rather dating is another name for free and dirty sex.
Poor souls, poor uneducated, shallow, disrespectful souls.
What do you have to say, dear reader? Have you suffered in a similar fashion? Do you have strong opinions about this? Please share. And become a fan on the facebook page. Best way to beat the sex-on-the-brain people who think that this is what this blog is about. Its not pornography – its divorce.
