It seems like my identity has been stolen. No, nobody stole my credit and made a huge number of purchases. Nor did anybody make any kind of changes to my credit score as far as I know.I mean my identity as a person. It used to be like: "Hi my name is SD and I am 20 years old and I have an older sister so I am not in shidduchim yet."
Not anymore. Apparently, MP has gone behind my back and robbed me of my identity. She has told my parents that she does not want me to wait for her any longer.
I officially have the green light. I am officially in shidduchim. Yikes.I wasn't home last night, when my mother called me at 10:30 to let me know. I texted a few friends to let them know, ya know, spread the word kinda thing. By 11:30 I was getting very depressed. "I can't believe this!" I told my friend. "It's already been an hour since I officially started shidduchim and not a single phone call yet!"
Uh, no. I wasn't serious. I wasn't expecting to get many phone calls. Not in the first hour, day, week, or even month. In fact, I'm not very sure how my status is really changed. I guess it all becomes more real now. SD in shidduchim? Yikes...what a thought. And here I was, coming to terms with the whole waiting for a red light business.
I always imagined waiting until MP got engaged, in which case I'd have a bit of warning. I must admit this is all pretty shocking...
And once again, I'd like to publicly note MP's strength of character. I am sure this decision was a really difficult one for her to make, but she did, and that impresses me.
So bring on TBB people! ;)
