Can buddies turn lovers?
Do you have a crush on your chaddi buddy? Don't bother, you are quite normal, as this doesn't only happen in Bollywood but in real life too. Deepti Kaul shares her friends' accounts.sex and relationships Updated: Aug 01, 2009 18:47 IST
So you thought it only happens in our masala Bollywood flicks, where a college student Rahul falls for the principal's daughter Tina. Suddenly Rahul's best friend a girl called Anjali, who is a tomboy, realises that she has a soft corner for his chaddi buddy. And the whole melodrama follows…
Many of us go through this difficult phase at some point or another, when either of the two pals starts having rosy dreams.
Something similar happened to two of my friends, one is enjoying a blissful married life and another is still waiting for true love.
Not everyone is lucky in love that too with friends, as they can't lose a friend by expressing their feelings and can't even live without expressing them.
Yatika, who is a speech therapist had a school friend Himanshu. During their school days they didn't even notice each other. But the cupid struck when they met after a few years in a school reunion. They got in touch, exchanged information, which led to frequent long talks. Yatika was studying in Mumbai and Himanshu was working in Bangalore.
One fine day Himanshu went all the way from Bangalore to Mumbai and proposed to Yatika. And after that there was no looking back. The couple is married and blessed with a beautiful daughter.
Hoping against hope
Another friend of mine Rishabh thinks that he loves our common friend Avantika. Rishabh found her, years after passing out from school, on a social networking site. The friendship grew stronger and Rishabh nurtured hopes to take this relationship to another level.
Somehow he managed to tell Avantika, promising her that his feelings won't affect their friendship. Avantika has never seen anything beyond a friend in Rishabh.
Now the hunk is depressed but at the same time his never-say-die spirit is not letting him accept that the relationship he is thinking of can never materialise. So, the dude is trying hard to get this girl.
Who knows if destiny will bring them together. Anyways all the best to all the lovelorn souls who plan to propose to their friends this Valentine's Day!
