What does one make of this person?Very recently, a prospective bridegroom from a very good family came calling. The vital "seeing the girl" happened. And then the inevitable private conversation between the boy and the girl happened too.
What followed was a shocker. The boy, an engineer, works heads the recruitment team in a big multinational in Bangalore, was so keen to only describe the nature of his job and how he was helping so many youngsters to find their feet and so on. Even when the girl make frantic attempts to bring in a little bit of romantic atmosphere by taking about his hobbies and interests and so on, the girl was shocked to find that the response was so negative.
40 out of 45 minutes was all about his job. The issue is the boy has lost his father. He is a well qualified mechanical engineer and has a good academic record.
The girl firmly said no to the alliance within hours. Today, most girls are educated and are very much career oriented. They want to study further and this girl expressed her wish too. The boy simply said that was her own wish and went back to boasting about his job.
How do we counsel such boys? What will happen if he continues such a horrible behaviour with other girls too? Why do we find such boys? Is it because he is too involved with his job that he forgets everything else? How can he ever enjoy his marriage at all?
