You will be shocked, yes you will

Okey so this has been brewing for a long time, but ive decided to not announce it on the internet untill the necessary arrangments were put in place.

Im getting married















































Yes im serious



















































No this is NOT a belated/early april fools joke










































Man shut the fuck up and listen for a second, stop giggling you fucking lifeless nerd, just fucking listen for a second


































Okey so you want the story?

Fair enough.

A while back during eid i was sitting on my computer working to finish some projects. We had guests, long time family friends. When they left i went downstairs. They were talking about how beutifull one of their daughters was, and my mom joked "We'll marry her to you ahmad" and i continued the joke and said "okey, so its my right to know what she's like, please describe by all means" so my mom was describing. She was saying that she was apparently a beauty queen, and described her features. Then she talked about her personality, apparently strong and smart etc... she was describing, and i was like... oooh nice. But it was, after all, a joke. Then my dad came along and suggested i get a shofa (which, in islamic terms means i get to see her dressed normally without her hair covered and other parts of her body uncovered, i.e. bellow the knees, arms, upper chest etc...) and i was like "yeah why not *.giggle.giigle.*

But, ITS WAS A JOKE to start off with.


A couple of days later, my dad was like "i made an appointment on such and such date" i was like SHIT serious?! why, where when how?! Anyway, i went out, bought the nicest suit i could find, and all was put in motion, still i believed that this was... i dunno? too wierd to handle i guess.

One little fact to highlight, i was always interisted in marrying early, and i made that clear to my parents.

Anyway, when i first visited it was SOOOO awkward, islamic laws require both my mother and hers to be present. But i put that out my mind and started talking. She was shy beyond belief, she couldnt look in my direction, literally speaking! And what i found even cuter was how she kept getting mixed up with what she said. Little did i know i was guy number 11 to "propose". She greatly disliked all the others, and before she saw me didnt really want to see me, but did it because our parents are close family friends.

When i left, she apparently took a liking for me, something she and i both didnt expect, not only that, but she had requested to see me again to make sure she wanted to start communications.

What first stuck me the first time i saw her was her beauty, its abnormal, she's has the looks of a model. To be honest, that was a turn on and a turn off because i though... hmm wayyy out of my league, but that is stupid thinking since marriage is less about beauty and more about compatability and understanding.

Second time i met her we had a nice long conversation. It was much more relaxed, we invited them over for a evening dinner. She was still shy but she had dressed up for the occassion, only once she reached she was too shy to take off the abaya, but did take of the viel

When she left i was like, DAMN. And i BEGGED my mother to get me her number/msn address etc... So then eventually after i pressured my mom and she pressured her mom, we got msn contacts. We stayed talking for a while on msn, and began to take a serious liking, then we started doing phone conversations for hours on end. Last night (although admitidly valentines) we did 9 hours 3 hours at a time with like 1 hour breaks inbetween. Unfortunatly this has concequences, i am in the uk and she is in saudi, the phone bill was £850 ( am screwed) but all is good.

We, obviously speaking, fell in love, and a while later we decided, ok lets marry. So now were "engaged" unofficially, and in one month we will be engaged officially and in 6 months legally married and in a year and a half ill have my marriage ceremony.

Taddaaa.......















No this isnt an elaborate joke i swear.

Sounds great, awesome in fact - great you're happy
But man, am I GLAD! I don't have to do stuff like that through my parents
They're totally out of my life. There's somehting hmm, charming in the way you people have it - I need to admit it. And I'm kinda curious, what about "dating", like, you meet a woman at work, or a school, or even see her on the street, you'd still have to do it through her parents? Doesen't it create, a loop for abuse? Well, just curious anyway Fantastic news, really.

Anakin will be so sad you know? Poor, poor Anakin.

Congrats!
Marriage is an important part of getting ahead.
It lets people know you're not a homo.
A married guy seems more stable.
People see the ring, they think, "At least somebody can stand the son of a bitch."
Ladies see the ring, they know immediately that you must have some cash, and your cock must work.

Congratulations

So, you were the 12th for her, and she was the 1st for you?
That kinda speaks both highly and lowly of you.
On one hand, it implies she is fussy and you made it through.
On the other it implies you take whatever you get

congrats...

Hmm.. maybe I should "convert" to Islam... much less hassle... then again.. I rather choose the girl myself without "help" from my parents and I wouldn't like my parents to chaperone me on dates.
Also I would mind all the other things that come with religion.

Ell ~ Skype lets you call none skype-users worldwide for 1p a minute. (ie, landlands). It effectively acts like a phone. Thats why I use it, I dont require the other person to set anything up.

If you want purely computer <<>> computer communication theres hundreds of options, SIP or overwise.

Thats assumeing your not in america, and your ISP isnt blocking them....

there are SIP to PSTN providers.

sip is simply the future for voip (and voip like things), it's an open and widely accepted standard. If you want to break the current PSTN vender lock-ins of the major phone companies then SIP will be the way to go.
a lot of phone companies already have announced to drop the PSTN backend within 5 years. Home users will get PSTN up to the local switchboard, from there on it will be (mostlikely) SIP. Ofcourse the phone companies will continue to let you pay through the teeth for their services.
