He is just a smooth talking guy...

May 07, 2012, 07:56 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, I met a very interesting guy while I was travelling recently and we ended up sharing our numbers and email IDs.

I thought I had found my soulmate. But after returning home and reading his profiles on social media, I’m having second thoughts. I have now realised that he is just another smooth-talking idiot. To add to my woes, this guy called me to ask whether I’d be able to meet him. I’m not at all interested in him anymore. But I don’t know how to say no so I have agreed to meet him when he’s in Mumbai next week.

Dear Namruta,
Good heavens... my girl! You have created the problem and you can only solve it. He is just an acquaintance and you began thinking of him as a soulmate! It is obvious that you showed interest in him and now he is taking the next step by asking you out. First, clear your muddled mind and decide what you want to do. Once you have found an answer, then act accordingly. You can always tell him no. It’s not that you had committed to him. So why can’t you say no to him? Make up your mind soon.
