Awkward

Was alone at home today.... little bro left to Cairo last night for the medical check up for the horrible military service....spent the morning lazing around a little then clearing up, then preparing tomorrow's lessons... got carried away with that... then I realised that it's time to go to the mosque....

Reached late... they'd prayed already... and it was so full mashAllah... looked around for an empty space to pray... didn't focus on any faces... found a space and headed straight for it... put down my bag and prayed and prayed and prayed ... oblivious of my surroundings.... finished praying.... Asalaamu3alaikom wa ra7matullah...

Psssst Psssst ....

That was the lady who'd set me up with her son... sitting 2 metres away... waiting for me to finish praying so she could say hello !! Went over to her and she kissed me .... saying that now she has 2 daughters... her daughter... and me....

Awkward awkward situation... didn't know what to say... smiled and said thank you.. and went back to my place....

mmm.. awkward yes, but you will get used to it. you did nothing wrong, we el 7agat mafeehash za3al. we al hamdulillah that you did not cause her son any pain. madam you ended it well, then there is no problem that you two stay friends.

Wow, that would be awkward! I agree with Doshar, you handled yourself very well and gave no false hope to anyone.

I can understand..it's really inconvenient dealing with her .. although u did nothing wrong.

But take it easy..it'll pass.

Let it slide...I second Doshar and Jane....this is a make or break deal...and u made urself clear wihthout being rude or offensive...on the contrary u were so nice...fa then it is the lady's part to accept it ba2a.

True, awkward, but yes, you did nothing wrong. You did the right thing and handled the son correctly. Maybe she just liked you so much and the only way to have you arround was to fix you up with her son. Maybe now you can still be friends without him.

yes me i understand it is only awkard it is more like embarassing and feeling by guilt !
but you know what , the lady's response shows that they were annoyed from you even though you closed the subject ..and you were nice and descent enough with them.

I know I didn't do anything wrong... but I couldn't help feeling awkward when I met her....

Oh well.. that's the way life goes ;-)

Meme,

Well I think this woman is really nice. I can tell you horror stories about what some women will do to you for refusing their precious sons.:)

Don't feel awkward ya meme. These things are naseeb. And if they are smart enough to know it & make it easy for themselves and for you then why not be as friendly as before.

I think maybe you felt awkward because it was the first time you saw her after it happened. ISA from now on it will be easier & more natural.

Dear Meme,
Yes, it is an awkward situation. But it is not your fault that you didn't like the guy. After all, you won't marry him out of courtesy:)
Just be nice but formal with the woman and she will get the message insha'allah.

Where are you, me? You have been away for a week now!
I hope everything is ok insha'allah

I like your blogs, and the way you express your ideas and feelings. I also liked the way you dealt with the situation. It's one free choice to marry the person one choices herself.
Take care

Loul,
yeah.. the woman is nice... maybe that's what made me feel bad too...

"I think maybe you felt awkward because it was the first time you saw her after it happened. ISA from now on it will be easier & more natural."

I guess so too... it's just that with other "grooms" who weren't my naseeb... I'd never see them or their familes again ...this is the first time it happens this way ...

Nesreen,
Nice to see you around here :-)
Thanks for your kind words *blush*

Wonderer,
"you won't marry him out of courtesy"

this part made me laugh LOL...
the woman knows I've refused ... she's just nice and we go to the same mosque so it seems she just wanted to show me that things are ok :-)

"Where are you, me? You have been away for a week now!
I hope everything is ok insha'allah"

Here I am ...been very busy and no time to blog or comment.. when I sit on the PC it's to write to my father or get work done :-/

Nobli,
Thanks ... and welcome to the blogosphere !!!
