Ah yes… the proverbial “maksud gw
kan baeeeek” defense.
I don’t know how old you are, but
personally I’ve reached that age where people simply have given up suggesting
it. I’m a “lost cause” of sorts, I guess. But first of all, you
should take a good look at yourself. People tend to be persistent when they can
sense that you are also looking for someone. So for all the “ah gw sih
cuek aje, untuk apa pacaran? cih!” some people say, sometimes ya ngga gitu
juga kan. And maybe your friends can sense it. There is nothing uncool or unhip
about wanting to be in a relationship kok. So if that’s what you want, that’s
what you want.. keep it real and be true to yourself.
But yes, I sympathize with you.
And all you “maksud gw baeq”
people who insists on feeding us basi lines like “orangnya baeeq
koq”, “ganteng lho”, “dia dokter/pilot/bandar akik”,
“kan ga ada salahnya dicoba”, “elu sih terlalu pemilih”,
“jangan mikirin karir melulu”, please stop. It’s sad, pathetic,
condescending, and only shows HOW LOW YOUR OWN PERSONAL STANDARDS ARE.
Yes, you read that right. You people need
to raise your standards.
Orang cakep, baeq, sopan whatever is
LITERALLY seribu tiga. I literally cannot randomly throw a batu akik and not
hit someone that fits that description on the head. You know what’s not seribu
tiga? Someone yang nyambung. And no, that is NOT up for the rest of you to
define. Everyone is very different. If you want to berkubang in your cesspool
standards of “orangnya baeq/cakep”, then go ahead… but never assume
the rest of us are as needy as you are to HARUS jadian ama sembarang orang cuma
karena baeq dan pinter.
“Ga ada salahnya dicoba…” Well,
there are a billion things yang “tidak ada salahnya dicoba”, it
doesn’t mean we should, right? Comments like come from the smug assumption that
*everyone* is desperate to be in a relationship and get married. Never apply
your own fears and insecurities to others, however “baeq” your maksud
So dear anon.. how do you decline? With a
graceful smile and a firm “no”. Basically, not like what I just
typed. Even if that’s what you’re thinking. 🙂
