Lost love

HT reader Rushabh Shah on his break-up.

On our first date, both of us were tongue-tied. Suddenly Shilpa broke the silence with, “You are looking nice today.” Both of us were blushing. We must have fallen in love then.

Movies, hanging out at coffee shops and travelling to college together became a regular affair. But as our class 12 board exams approached, she stopped taking my calls. She wanted to focus on her studies. I didn’t want to disturb her. Soon after the exams, she went out of town with her parents. We lost touch for two months.

She returned, but she had changed completely. She wasn’t very friendly and avoided going out with me. I knew something was wrong but didn’t say anything to her.

I asked her close friend the reason for her changed behaviour. She told me that Shilpa didn’t want to continue with the relationship because of some personal problems.

I wasn’t convinced. On my birthday, I called Shilpa and asked her why she was ignoring me. She gave me the same reason as her friend. I was dejected. I still love her. It’s six months now.
