There are many ups and downs for this Zardozi woman who is on her quest to find Mr. Right.
Through this journey, I’m narrowing in on what I’m actually looking for in a guy. I was never the type with a wish list or a picture in my head of what Mr. Right should look like. But meeting all these interesting characters is giving me a better idea of what I should be looking for.
I’m realizing that I want a strong, sensitive, gentleman, who is not overly tall. One man, told me he was six foot two. A little giant-ish for my liking. One day he sent me a message saying that he had a dream that I was hugging him, telling him I liked him so much. He said that he hoped that his dream would come true. We hadn’t even met yet and I had to admit to him that I didn’t think we ever would.

So when I came across a good looking Patel, I thought I should go for it. He messaged me, but his words were uninteresting, bland. He never asked deep questions or asked anything about me. His messages consisted of “hi” and “cool.”
One night as I was getting ready to go see my friends, he sent me a text, asking me to meet him and his friend at a local bar and to bring any single friends. I told him I wouldn’t be able. When I reached my friend’s home, I told her about Mr. Patel and showed her his picture. She told me she knew him and that he has a girlfriend. It’s official, all brown people know each other!
