When you are shopping for anything at all, in any store, anywhere, she seeks the weirdest of details - things like “thread counts,” and other similar information that means absolutely nothing to the average male. It is seemingly more important to her than your immediate state of comfort - you could be emaciated, or profusely bleeding, or taken hostage in any given scenario. You will be hard pressed to gain her sympathy or even peripheral attention.
Contender for her Attention
Own Way, Of Course!
She is usually very unhappy with the appearance of any given room and is going over and over in her mind about what could be done to make it look better. You begin to feel that you are living with a chameleon – although a glamorous and pleasant smelling chameleon. She is always excited by the possibilities of creating limitless makeovers. She is in a constant dream-like trance mesmerized by her own dreams.
p.m. Show - 'Luxe Interiors'
When you realize that NDTV Good Times calls to her like a waking dream, it is clear that she has succumbed to a destiny that will eventually eliminate the need for your participation in any meaningful interaction. You can only hope against hope that she peripherally uses logic and reason to eventually understand that you are the one who actually loves her – not her Anatolia Jaali table runner.
When you notice that a copy of ‘Inside Outside’ (home decorating) has mysteriously replaced the ‘Kama Sutra’ on the table by her elegant bed, it is a natural cause for concern. That moment will replay itself in your nightmares until the time comes when you realize that you too, are more concerned with home decor - the nightmares will subside, and then intensify, when you completely comprehend it all.
Learning the Time Tables in the School
Most women know all the shades of pink but yours studies hues and patterns with a vengeance, second to no known painter, even from the distant past. She slaps your wrist every time you say – “Can you pass me the blue cushion?”
Your woman shops with the same insatiable commitment in which she cultivates her career. And if you consider accompanying her on those adventures, even in a very limited capacity, it is because you instinctively sense that she is out of control. She needs to be reminded that there are other practical matters that warrant more thought and are crucial to survival yours and hers.
When you propose spending a romantic evening at home, even offer to whip up a gourmet meal for her, she unhesitatingly declines. It is because she has been planning on shopping for bed linens for a very long time, and she must now embark on that fulfilling journey. You are almost certain there is something amiss in her priority department.
When her wallpaper features a well-manicured garden and she has no memory of your romantic vacation, it is time to accept that she is addicted to all things aesthetic and that she might need medical attention to alleviate her blatant proclivities. This, however, totally depends on her willingness to understand your state of mind, which she probably considers to be somewhat Neanderthal.
be With an Interior Designer
And finally, deep down, inside your soul, you know that she would much rather be in the company of an interior designer who caters to her every whim with beautiful imagery and airbrushed possibilities that mesmerise her and elegantly accommodate her love for decorarion. But you tolerate it all with grace, and whisper to her - using pleasant, “strategic verbal decor,”(sweet nothings) because you love her.
