Unlucky in love...

My friend Fara, whom I affectionately call 'Shorty' is a classic example of someone unlucky in love... For the great person that she is, she seems to always attract the wrong men.

I first met her years ago, when her then boyfriend and I were playing for the same basketball team. Actually her ex is a good friend of mine, more like a brother really, since we're all from the land below the wind, which if I may add, is the most beautiful and friendliest State in Malaysia!

Anyways, he was a great basketball player and was even a member of the Malaysian national team at that time. Shorty was your typical next door type of girl - shy, cute, friendly but in a very demure way; someone you would want to introduce to the folks...

She was also a distant relative of my girlfriend at that time, NAK. And when I broke up with NAK, she was there for me, all throughout the painful rehabilitation process and I will forever remember and be thankful for what she had done.

Before I go off base, this entry is about shorty and her very bad luck with relationships and this is what I will write about hehehehe... Shorty's relationship with O was a whirlwind one, it happened so fast and before you know it, she was left with nothing but hatred, total and pure hatred, for O.

You see, O was a playa, or so he likes to think... When shorty wasn't around, he played; heck, even if she was around, he still played! But of course, shorty was in-love and despite the numerous rumors she heard about his straying ways, she persevered and continued with the relationship... Me? I didn't say nothing... I have heard or on certain occasions, seen O playing but hey, I was friends to both of them and I didn't want to be perceived as a squealer. Even if I disagreed or did not condone O's actions, I wouldn't stick my nose where it didn't belong...

Until...

Until I found out that his game had totally taken the wrong course!

When he started a relationship with someone from the same sex, that was it for me. I spoke to both of them and told them what I think and what I had to say about the matter. I have nothing against same-sex relationships, mind you, but what I have something against is when you can't make up your mind as to where your sexual preferences are. Moreover, don't try to be a wise ass and play both fields, this just doesn't go well in my book. If you're gay, you're gay and I ain't gonna hold it against you. I have lots of gay friends and they have nothing been but great friends...

Simply put, shorty and O broke up... Even in my rehabilitation process, I tried to be there for her similar to the way she was there for me. I know she' s moved on and am really proud of her; how she overcame the painful betrayal and metamorphosed into a very successful woman... From a love-struck teenager when I first met her, she has now matured into a successful financial consultant, currently attached with one of, if not, the biggest financial group in the world; she has also earned her Bachelor's and Master's degree in the process...

But what saddens me is that, until today, she still hasn't found someone who could truly make her happy. After O, she found solace with the doctor and when that didn't last, she thought she found the one when she started dating the diplomat but yet again, it wasn't meant to be...

She says she's enjoying her singlehood but I know, deep down, she craves the attention and loving of a man that befits her character. I have always advised her to just chill and not actively pursue happiness; when they come, they come...

Shorty is one of the kindest souls I have ever known and I just think it's unfair that she hasn't met someone who can pierced through and see that there is an angel - an angel that desperately needs loving - inside of her...
