Story of Half Relationship - #HalfGirlfriend

I am a big book geek and I have read all the books of Mr. Chetan Bhagat. I have even seen all the movies based on his books. When Blogadda shared that they are coming up with the contest for the Half Girlfriend movie, I was more than eager to write for it and share the story of one of my very good friend and his half relationship cum half girlfriend. 

Due to privacy reasons, I have given a different name to the character. 

My friend Aman Mehra, a tall, charming young man, fresh out of his MBA college and excited to join his first job. He never thought that he will get manu first time experiences in his new life. He joined an airline company in sales department. Before the job started, they had a week long training program. There were 4 training sessions running simultaneously and during one such session, they had a lunch break with another group of trainees. During a short lunch break, he saw someone - beautiful as ever, lively as anyone can be. For Aman, it was infatuation at first sight. He tried to meet the girl, but unable do so during the training sessions. Later, after a lot of tries and contacting a friend of a friend of a friend, he gets introduced to Shikha, new joinee in the sales department. Aman was more than happy with this revelation as he got to work in the same team as Shikha. 

Soon as the job started, Aman and Shikha became good friends, indeed best of friends. They worked together to crack a deal, achieved goals, had lunch breaks together and also spent evenings together discussing their lives. Aman always had feelings for Shikha and as time passed by, his feelings became stronger. He started loving Shikha and thought that she felt the same way. He never had guts to confess his feelings to Shikha. His friends forced him to tell her soon before she fell in love with someone else. Aman was sure about Shikha and also believed that she loved him back as they spent so much time together and shared so many beautiful memories. His day started with a morning message from her to meeting her at lunch to doing work together to even ending a day with her good night message. 

One fine day, he decided to gather his courage and propose Shikha. He thought of doing something simple yet elegant to impress her. He invited her to dinner at a fine dining restaurant. Shikha had no idea what was in store for her. Aman proposed to Shikha and she was stunned. She wasn't happy which disturbed Aman. She shared that she never that any feelings for Aman, he was always her best friend, not a lover. Aman was broken at hearing those words and tried convincing Shikha about the moments they shared together, the care they had for both and how he will look after all her needs and family. He opened his heart about loving her forever and be there for her. In response to such lovely words, Shikha tells him that he is more than a friend to her, but not a boyfriend. To come to boyfriend stage, she needs time to decide. Obediently Aman gave her all the time in the universe to find the answer yes. 

Heartbroken but still holding on to hope, Aman gave Shikha space by not forcing her or contacting her to give an answer to his proposal. One month passed and there was no response. Aman started to get worried about her. He desperately wanted an answer but never thought of losing Shikha's friendship. He tried to find out the truth about her feelings via a friend who contacted her friend. He was waiting with patience to know the reality yet his mind kept wondering on what if she says no. After 2 months, he came to know the truth. His friend told him that Shikha is dating another guy and they are going to get married soon. Aman couldn't digest this fact, he was in shock, completely heartbroken, desperate, couldn't believe that the love of his life had not just lied to him, but also misguided him in believing a future of them together. 

After this incident, he shuts himself to everyone around him and focused only on work. He stopped socialising with people, hardly interacted with anyone in the office. He hated going to the office as it reminded him of Shikha and he always had that feeling of encountering her in the office corridor. He tried his best to forget about her or even think about her, but every incident reminded him of her. Working on project reminded of their time together, lunch time reminded him about his time spent with her, he spent evenings being lonely as spending it with people reminded him of Shikha. He couldn't believe himself to be so deeply in love with her. After the news, he still kept his calm and tried contacting her. He called her, but her number was changed, he sent her messages on social media but no response. After few messages he got the notification that Shikha has blocked him from contacting her. This was a clear indication that she didn't want anything to do with Aman and with heavy heart, he stopped approaching her.

Aman soon changed his job as staying in existing firm became harder for him. Soon over a period of time, he started meeting people and tried forgetting Shikha ever existed in his life. In a year's time, he met someone else. Her name was Naina. Even though he had a baggage with him, he was open about his feelings to Naina and unlike Shikha, she was in love with Aman. Things moved on from being friends to being boyfriend and girlfriend. After 2 years of dating, Aman propose to Naina as his love became stronger for Naina and they got engaged. Somewhere deep down, he always thought the chapter of Shikha is not completely closed. To his surprise, at his colleague's wedding, he came face to face with Shikha. 

Aman was neither happy nor sad to see Shikha, but Shikha was more than happy to see Aman. He tried to avoid having any conversation with her. however, Shikha was sure to take her moment with Aman. She approached him with an apology about what had happened between them and she wishes to tell him the truth. Aman, even though he didn't want to be rude to Shikha, asked her why after 3 years of running away from me and stopping me from having a conversation with you, why do you want to ruin my life again by bringing old memories back. She cried and told him to just hear her out. Gulping down on the tears coming to his eyes, Aman nodded with his head, afraid that words will fail him again. 

Shikha spoke with crying in between, how she was dating someone else while they were still friends. He was a family friend and she was attracted to him from the beginning. Her family were more than happy to agree on marriage with him and Shikha didn't object. She was confused with her feelings as she liked spending time with Aman, but at the same time, she had an infatuation towards the other person. He was from a wealthy family and Shikha's parents insisted her on getting married to him. She is married to him for almost 2 years and she told Aman that she is not happy in the marriage. Shikha cried and cried telling all the problems she is facing with her life partner and how it was a big mistake to marry him. How he doesn't let her contact her friends or work. Aman listened to all this, but couldn't utter a single word of comfort to her. He was more than stunned, he was sad thinking what it could have been, if she just had courage to talk to him before making such decision. Shikha, controlling all the tears, requested Aman if there is anything left between them, if he still love her, can he help her get out of marriage, that she loves Aman and she made mistakes in her life and want the rest of the life to be lived with Aman. 

These were the precise word which Aman hoped rather begged to hear 2 years ago when he proposed and now these words are nothing but empty to his ears and heart. He didn't feel love for Shikha, his heart has been filled with enough love from Naina and he didn't want to ruin that perfect picture he is living in. He felt pity for Shikha, how stupid she has been. At one moment, he did feel like going back in time to change the things. Shikha waited with tears in her eyes for Aman's response. Aman saw in her eyes, a spark of hope, a saviour to come to her rescue. Sadly, Aman was not the one.

Aman spoke with the utmost calmness he can get into his voice. He told her about how he always wanted these words from Shikha, how he spent a year in darkness. Unfortunately or maybe fortunately, he has found someone who truly loves him and have no confusion about her feelings. He also deeply cares about her and loves her. He rather be with a person who always believed in him and appreciated his love than crave a lover who never seen what was truly hers.

With this, he left Shikha crying for her future, left alone to fight her own battle, accept her own mistakes, forgetting about his only hope, more than that with a fact that someone else is living a life which she refused to live, a life full of happiness and contempt. Somewhere in a parallel universe, Aman and Shikha might have a good future, but in this world, Aman despite all the pain and broken heart, he found love. 

True love always finds its place, sometimes it can be with wrong people and heart can be broken for a while. With time love will always find its place. Just have some hope and enough love for yourself.

Aman is married to Naina and they are living a happy married life!

  40. The Internet Highway has changed the way we live. It has changed the way we socialize and it has also increased the likelihood of finding love over the internet. Conversations are easy to strike up with regularity and it's easy to discover that you have strong feelings for someone who lives hundreds or thousands of miles away from you! Many people are choosing to have long distance relationships (LDRs) LDRs might feel wonderful at first. However, they come with their own set of unique challenges as well. Many couples are blind-sided by the impact an LDR can have on their daily life. This person can now feel so close to you because of the internet and yet in reality, remain so far away. The paradox is weighty. The more prepared you are to handle the situation, the better equipped you both will be to make decisions along the way that will benefit you and your partner and possibly make it a safer and enjoyable experience.
