The Ruby Necklace

i remember that i once wanted to buy a ruby necklace, for i had this beautiful rosy gown, but couldn't find something suitable to wear in my jewels box, and so, i went shopping with one of my sisters.

for weeks, i had no luck... they either didn't have rubies, or they didn't have the style i wanted... i was running out of time, the party was going to be held after a couple of days, and thus, i had to ask where would i find what am looking for...

"A jewelry gallery is being held in ****, go to Iran's section, you'll find lots of options there!". Filled with hope, i went, and there it was, a huge ruby surrounded by diamonds, it was perfect! and it was worth every dime i paid :)

weeks later, my cousin, who is fond of jewelry, asked to see my necklace... "How much did you pay for it?" "i got it for ***$" "That's impossible! a ruby this size, and such clarity would cost AT LEAST 100,000 $, you'd better go and check it"

"It's real" the shop owner said, and i jumped with joy! with a smile, he continued "REAL GLASS", the smile on my face faded, and was replaced by a disappointed look... "don't be sad, it's a beautiful piece of art, and honestly, i wouldn't have sold it for less than 4 times the number you've mentioned, wear it with confidence :) "

Later on, he explained to me a simple way to differentiate between real stones, and fake ones, he also gave me much information about diamonds and gold... i thanked him, and left...

deep inside, i just wished if there was a similar simple way to differentiate between people... a way to tell who is being honest, and who isn't... who loves you for who you are, and who loves you for what you own... a person who truly likes you, and someone who just wants to benefit from you... i am afraid... am scared of the idea that one day i might be fooled by the way someone looks like, the way someone acts like, someone that i'll spend the rest of my life with, to realize at the end that he's not the person whom i thought he was...

    i think that no one can help u there,u'll be able to find the way by ur self,but when u are about 60 years old,coz only then u'll have enough experience in life to know almost everything about ppl who deal with and talk to u by their outside layers.i have the same fear as u coz many times i tried to be friends with ppl who i discovered they don't disereve it,this happened when i was in 5th or 6th grade, i haven't learened and did the same mistake twice in my first year at uni,(how stupid can i be!!)so i have a (3u2de) i can't get over it, and becoz of that i don't have a best friend!!.
    as for being scared of the person i''l spen my life with,well i dicided to take a short cut and not reach that point,i don't need a headache for the rest of my life :)

    Only if life were so easy rain.But sometimes we do end up in beautiful relationships.It is worth the try.
    Even if all is just not too well atleast we mature with better knowledge and more wisdom.It is the case of the half-full glass of water. One wld say it is half full and another wld say half empty.
    Being optimistic definitely has its advantages.
    And stonez012, relax.Life is not all that bad.

    you're sort of right :) the only problem is, after lots and lots of bad experiences, i can hardly ever trust anyone now... am usually being formal when dealing with others, except when am with my old friends...
    i don't know if am ever going to be able to totally trust someone new again... i ended up wanting people to know me, but not really know the "inside" of me... i guess am doing this to protect myself from others...
    maybe someday i'd be able to change my ideas :) i hope that some1 out there would really be worth my trust, some1 whom i'd want her/him to know the real me:)

    When it comes to marriage, you will most likely be disappointed, at least partially. I think you have to be realistic and not expect the man of your dreams, because he is not real. Even if you like someone's traits 80%, he might develop habits later that you don't like or you might develop in a way that might make him be less of a good match. I recommend making sure the man/woman has the basics that you care about and leave the rest to be discovered and instead of trying to make him/her the way you want them to be, try and be open to change yourself.

    thanks nar for the comment :)

    when it comes to marriage, it's a totally different story... the idea itself scares me! it's just not easy to decide that this is the person that you really want to spend the rest of your life with... you should think a 1000 times before you make such a decision :)

    when it comes to marriage, it's not only you who is involved... it's your whole family too, and your future kids :)

    am not perfect, and i don't believe that there is a perfect person out there... but i do believe that someday i'll find a gr8 person who knows how to treat me right. someone who respects me and admires me for who i am, and not for what i am.

    All i want is someone whom my family would accept and respect. someone whom i know that if someday something bad happens to me, my kids are going to be in safe hands, and they shall be raised in a proper way.

    but still, i have once promised myself to do something significant with my life... that am not going to be just another copy... some1 who was born, lived, and died... and i just donno how applicable is that going to be after marriage :) (no need to remind me of that you're doing "something" when you raise a family, i already know that record by heart :) it's just not enough for me!

    Rain, if you have enoght drive to do great things, you will.

    I think there will always be challenges and obstacles, no matter who you are or your situation is like. My dad made it bigger that all his brothers through his determination. He came from a large poor family with an illetrate father. He used to use a chair as a table to study on in candle light. He had no support from my grandfather when he chose to go to school over going into the army.

    Also, you can do great things that are not basically "having a great job". You can help others, write, etc.

    you are lucky to have such a father :) he is someone who deserves to be respected for who he is:)

    i'd like to believe that we are not our names or titles, nor the families we come from... we are what we make out of our ourselves and out of our lives:)

    each one of us is here for a reason, i just hope that i'll figure out what it is before it's too late :)

    well...it's a nice post...
    i guess u should know him very well before marrige.... i guess engagement period should be 1 year at least ! and u can judge if he is real or fake by his behaviours ! lets say tinny behaviours ! i will think about it and i will tell u about any new idea !

    hmmmm... i've been living with myself for more than 21 years now, and i still didn't get to understand "me" very well :)

    i don't think a year is enough... it might take you a life time before u get to really know someone, and sometimes, we never do...

    i still can't see where the fun is in getting married to some1 whom u know every single detail about... there has to be something interesting in ur partner, something that will always make you want to get to him/her better...

    anyway, it's sort of early for me to think of this subject :) i have lots of things that i have to do before considering it! but i still would absolutely love to hear your ideas ;)
