Matchmakers’ Training: Classes Now in Session in the Universities

Despite ALL those AVAILABLE fishes in the SEAS, we still just can’t quite to find the right one for us, and this, is what’s put up, to serve THAT purpose, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Socio-psychology Department of the World News University is about to set up the “Research & Education Center for Love” this month, at the quickest, other than helping the students get pass the difficulties in their romantic relationship, doing researches on how the sexes interact with one another, and, it’d also planned to offer cross-major credit hours, and work alongside the matchmaking companies too, becoming the first place with a major in Taiwan that trains professional matchmakers.

The Department Head of the World News University of Psychology, Jeng claimed, that a lot of the college students got their views on love from the media, and are influenced to become fearful of love, due to the hike in divorce rates; but, from the statistical measures, most of the marriages are still very blissful, by setting up this realm of study, it is hoped that it can help the students get past the myths of how marriage will often end up in divorces.

Jeng said, started in 1999, he’d offered a general studies course in “Love Psychology” every year, and, the students would jam packed the auditoriums, it’d showed, how much the students wanted to learn how to interact with members of the opposite sex.

Jeng stated, that the Love Research and Education Center not only studies the trends in love, offer counseling to college students with relationship troubles, in the future, it would be set up as a course in the psychology department as well, and, a set of course combining counseling measures and social psychology, training the students to become “professional modern-day matchmakers”, through counseling, finding the one who is right for you, and the communication during dating, and how to deal when the families are against the lovers, and, the counseling after the marriage, a series of related topics of study.

Jeng pointed out, that there are a TON of matchmaking services in the world, but, those that operated well, aren’t that numerous, the Love Research and Education Center will be working together, with the experts in the areas, working alongside the matchmaking companies, to help with the researches, and matchmaking of the sexes, and even have certification trainings for “Professional Matchmakers”.

Because there IS a desperate need for this, that, is why this program got set up, to help out those young people (and, I’m still NOT one of those!!!) to find the love they’re looking for, besides, at this day and age, who the HELL has the time, to sit and date someone AT that café, to chit-chat, to see IF we match up perfectly, we want everything FAST, like fast-food?  That, is why, this “department” is being SET up…

A Room, with Two Single Beds

This, is what our marriage looks like!

A room, with two single beds, and, our two single beds aren’t even touching, believe it or don’t, we’re just like roommates, with the occasional FUCKS when needed.

A room, with two single beds, how, did our love become like that?  I keep on wondering, and still, I can’t figure it out.  A room, with two single beds, hey, look on the right side, at least, ONE of us did not move OUT into the hallways, at least, we still shared this “room”, right?

 A room, with two single beds, how did we become like that, two strangers, who come home, to the same place?  How did our love end like this?  I’m really just, not feelin’ it at all lately, and, I really want to, call it QUITS, but, I don’t want to give up, just yet………

A room, with two single beds, and, that, is all we will EVER be, strangers, who shared a room, a living space, and some days, I’d feel, crowded and needed, to move one of those single beds, OUT into the hallways, and KEEP it there!

Because We Can’t Escape, So We Pretend

We don’t know how we found ourselves here, but, because we can’t escape, so, we pretend…

Because we can’t escape, so we pretend, and yeah, it worked wonders, NOT having to deal with these problems that are comin’ towards us, to keep the wolves, FAR, FAR, FAR away, but, recently, those problems came back up again, and, because pretending worked the last time, we’d, pretended some more.

Because we can’t escape, so we pretend, that everything is still going smoothly between us, but, it isn’t, and, I’m losing sleep over it, and I know you are too, next to me, on this bed that we still shared, don’t know for how much longer though…

Because we can’t escape, so we pretend, but, in the end, all these false pretenses are just that, they do diddily squat for our problems, and, it was, too late, for us, to fix what went wrong, we’d let everything slide, because we both carried that ostrich attitude, that if we bury our heads in the sand, then, the problems will eventually go AWAY, but, they didn’t, and now, we part!

Because we couldn’t escape, so we pretend, and look how WELL that worked out?  We went from lovers, BACK to strangers again, and, thinking back, to this so-called marriage of mine, well, let’s just leave it at that…

Do Look More at Your Spouse’s Better Qualities

Translated…

Last weekend, I’d asked along a couple of good friends, and, we took all our kids to Dahu Park, on the one hand, our kids could have each other’s company, and, on the other, it’d given us, mothers, a breather, to chit chat with each other, to reconnect with one another.

Mei-Jun who arrived late to the gathering came, complaining about how her husband would just sleep in on the weekends, rarely helped out around the house, nor does he schedule outings with the children; and, she’d become responsible, for the kids’ recreational activities on the weekends, and, from time to time, when her husband came along, he’d only acted as the chauffeur, drove everybody to the spot, then, headed back home to sleep some more.

After Wen had heard, she’d started envying Mei-Jun, turns out, that her household was exactly the opposite from Mei-Jun’s.  Wen who keeps everything tidy wanted the weekend, to clean up, but, the husband believed, that the weekends should be spent, away from home, whether it be going to the movies, or to sightsee.  Although Wen knew, that going on outings as a family is an amazing experience, but, when she thought of how much work that needed done around her house, she couldn’t help, but feel worried.

Then, Yu-Jen joined in the discussion too, even though her husband doesn’t have that many bad qualities, but, he is reactive, needed to be told what to do; but, the things that she’d missed, her husband ignored.  In the end, everything big and small in her house, relied on Yu-Jen, as the “commander” to handle, and, her husband became a pawn that just runs the errands.

Hearing my girlfriends started describing how displeased they were at their husbands, I couldn’t help, but smile, turns out, based off of the standards my good friends had set up, my husband is a perfect ten, hard working, and can cook (although he rarely had any chances to), and on the weekends, he’d taken the kids out exercising, cycling, camping, climbing, and would also accompany my children as they worked on their art, or practiced their piano.

But, this sort of a perfect husband has a weird habit, he’d wanted to order everything, books, shirts, pants.  He’d ordered everything in his closets by sections of shirts, pants, suits, and, lined his clothes up based off of length and color too; on his bookshelves, he’d ordered his books by the types of books he had, then, sorted them out by sizes.  The bathroom and living room slippers must be orderly, so it would be convenient, to the next person who uses it.

After my husband heard, they’d all shook their heads, thought that this precise man can impose a great deal of pressure on his family, and, everybody all of a sudden felt, that their husbands in their daily living, are actually very good, despite how messy they can get.

I’d smiled and told them, “each couple have differences in upbringing, if you can respect and cherish one another’s good qualities, then, you’d gotten along nicely.  Marriage is not changing the other person into another you, instead, it’s making sure, that your qualities complemented each other’s, so one plus one is greater than two.”  As for who gives more to whom, don’t nickel and dime, after all, love is the point, so, we’re all, giving to our families, willingly.

And so, each house has its separate issues, and, what you see as a good quality in someone else, may not be a good quality, to someone whom the person is close to, so, stop envying one another, and just cherish what you have.

After I’d Lost My Job

Gives you a brand new perspective on things, after you’d lost your job, and now, after you’d reexamined yourself, you can start again, on a fresh note, translated…

As everybody is ushering in the brand new year, I’d had to face the facts, of my company closing down, and being out of a job.

Losing the job during the Chinese New Years is an awful thing, and, all of my friends and families had commented, “That’s such a shame, there goes, your year-end bonus!”

Recalling just six months ago, when I’d realized, that my company was laying off the employees one by one, I’d already started planning.  After all, I’m getting older, and, the opportunities won’t come at me like they used to.  Even so, I’d still held that positive attitude, study at home, or, apply for new job.

This year was just the year when my son is taking his entrance exams for high school, I’d busied myself in and out daily, chauffeuring him every single day; my daughter who’d come home for her winter break got to sleep until she wakes herself, and enjoy the home cooked meals prepared by her mother.  See how happy she looks, this, was the small-time happiness she never had the chance of experiencing since birth.

Is it scary, to become unemployed?  I’d asked myself this a lot recently.  Because I’d lost my job, I’d had more time, to prepare the meals for my family, to tidy up the house more; because I’d lost my job, I’d gotten more time to stay at home, and, after having that honest heart-to-heart with myself, I’d realized, my past mistakes.

Losing my job became a turning point for me, I expect that I will be able to face my unknown future with more bravery, because I’d gotten beaten, losing my job and all.  Carrying on with this positive mindset, and, embrace the bottom half of my life that is solely mine.

And so, you’d carried that positive outlook on life, even though you’d lost your job, and, it’s that positive attitude that will help you in the futures to come.

Childhood Sweethearts

The BEST of times here, translated…

Not identical to that crush, back then, we still don’t know the meanings of love yet, with the heart of adoration, but, we were, more confused at that age.  Sometimes, we were inseparable, at others, we were, enemies, and the very next day, we’d gone to school together, sat on the same rows.  We were, childhood sweethearts, and, we were saved, in one another’s memories as young, naïve, pretty and naughty.  That, was the faces of the time from kindergarten to elementary school, so close, and inseparable, and afterwards, when we’d thought about one another, that smile would, slowly, creep up onto our faces.

Those faces, had, walked into, the elementary school reunion, thirty years later.  Released, exploded, if our own children see us, they would still not believe it, turns out, that their parents, were once, young children like they are too, they were, rowdier, than those classrooms, without the teachers watching over the classes.  Those we’d lost touch with after we left the elementary years, we’d taken a look at one another closely, and, we’d all managed, to return one another, back to when we were still just children again.  That naughty boy who’d once taken his own sunny side up, and shared it with that little girl, that generous girl who’d won the love of all the boys in her class, those who’d traded candies and toys smiled at one another, and, those who’d fought with themselves are the happiest now.  Reconnecting, the women started talking with their childhood girlfriends about the happenings in the girls’ lives, and, the men shared those old days of making trouble as boys with each other too.  We’d all grown, all became strong, with our separate life experiences too.  Our statuses and our positions, our occupations don’t matter at all, we were, competing with one another, who’d gotten punished the worst by our instructor back in the day, who’d made fools of themselves the most number of times, and, those troubles in our past became, a beautiful song that we shared with one another.

Childhood sweethearts, the hearts were true back then.  I’d once followed and traced their footprints, Googling them, tracking them in secrecy using Facebook, silently prayed, that they’re all okay, that after she’d fallen ill, she could cherish what’s important more, that he’d grown stronger, after getting up from his falls.  The over thirty years of absences from one another’s life, were traded, in secrecy, and, we’d continued, holding on, picking up where we left off, in our childhood years, smiling more radiantly for her sake, giving him a louder applause, although we may be far apart in physical distances, we could still connect with one another, still give each other kudos.  The reunion of the younger years, can make people escape their current life situations temporarily, to allow you, to realize, that those who’d shared your ups and downs from way back when, should be the ones you’d cherished the most.

Looking at the sign-in books, and, the times we’d shared all came back to life again, and, it’d showed a picture of that pasture in our childhood years, the wind woke a pair of young childhood sweethearts from nap, the childlike, the shy, the words that filled our hearts, just wouldn’t, come out, articulate, and back then, we’d all just said, “It’s nice to meet you.”  Without realizing, that thirty years from then when we’d met back up again, we’d stated it simply, “So glad to see you again.”

Turns out, this group of seven, eight year-olds who’d mowed the grasses by the fields, those laughter, those silently slacking off, we were, practicing, for the happiness and the sorrows, of our current lives.

So, that, is how much, the childhood days can affect a person, huh???  And, the writer went from talking about his elementary school reunion, and, connected it to how those childhood experiences, had made him into who he is today.

When Marriage Outlasted Love

Oh, BUMMER!!!

When marriage outlasted love, well, why don’t we just put it (the marriage) OUT of ITS misery then?  I mean, it’d already, outlasted its “mate”, love, and, with the passing of each and every day, it (marriage) is becoming more and more lethargic…

When marriage outlasted love, there’s NOTHING we CAN do, because love’s already gone, and, all that’s left, is this, empty shell of a marriage that we now share, coming home, to this vacant house, sitting opposite of each other for supper, without even KNOWING what’s on one another’s minds.

When marriage outlasted love, then, let’s just, TERMINATE the marriage, and, put it out of ITS misery, after all, we’d already, drained IT dry, didn’t we?  When marriage outlasted love, but, marriage should NOT outlast love, love and marriage goes hand-in-hand, don’t they?

When marriage outlasted love, there’s NOTHING we can do, we still have young children, who need us both, because, it IS important for children, to grow UP in a “whole” family, with a mommy, and a daddy, right?  And, we’d missed out, on the MOST important thing in the offspring’s lives: their mental wellbeing!

When marriage outlasted love, well, let’s just, cross those “t’s”, and dot them “i’s”, and, I’ll see you in court!  When marriage outlasted love, hate will become the ONLY emotion, in this marriage, and, we may think, that our marriage WAS ruined by this hate that’s now between us, but, it actually, wasn’t, the culprit, because we’d slowly come to an end, as our marriage outlasted love…

Taking Off Your Last Name

Finally, it took me, a VERY long, long time, but, I’m finally, doing it!

Taking off your last name, it’s bound to happen, after all, we’re NO longer “bound”, as that wedding band of ours, had already been, sent into the FIRES of love, and, it still couldn’t, withstand the heat…

Taking off your last name, and, I will NEVER ever, EVER be, putting IT back on, behind my own last name again, because I have NO need to have the “title” of someone’s WIFE, and besides, these years of being married to you, well, it’s just, NO fun at all, and, I just don’t do things that are NOT fun!

Taking off your last name, because I have NO need, to belong to any family, not even yours.  Taking off your last name, as your last name’s gotten too heavy, it’d become, burdensome for me, to carry, and now, I’d stopped myself, from taking the load all in.

Taking off your last name, wow, I can finally breathe, who’d thought, right???  Turns out, what’s been suffocating me, was your love to me, which wasn’t even at all, LOVE, to begin with, and now that I’m taking off your last name, nobody ELSE’s last name will go behind MINE again!

Being Put Down by Her “Better Half”

The interactions of a husband & a wife, translated…

Meng taught at a private technical high school.  Her husband is a professor at a university, when they were just wed, it’d made everybody envious of them.  Unexpectedly though, a few days ago, Meng called me up, told me she wanted to divorce her husband.

Upon hearing, I was shocked, and I just asked her all about it, Meng told me she’d worked for a private technical high school, and is regularly under great pressure, every time she’d gone home, and said a few words of complaints to her husband, he’d put her down.  Meng said, that the purpose of her, pouring her heart out at him was not so he could talk down to her some more, nor was she looking for a solution from him, for her problems at work, she just hoped, that he could, keep his horses, and hear her rant for a bit, instead of putting salt on her wounds, and turning her down, invalidating her feelings.  After I’d heard, other than trying to calm her down, I’d shared my own experiences with her.

When my children were in the middle school years, they attended the school where I taught, and, as the children of teachers, the spotlight was often on them, and so, when my sons didn’t do that well at school, and was shown care and concerns by others, I’d told my husband, that I was under great pressures, he’d always acted so relaxed, as if it wasn’t even related to him; he’d even told me, so long as my children grow up healthy and strong, the grades don’t really matter.  Later on, my daughter had gotten into a very famous language school in the south, and my son, into a very good high school too.

When my son was in his junior year in college, he’d told us he wanted to drop out and start his own business, I’d almost passed out, I’d hoped, my husband could talk him out of it, but my husband told me, to take care of myself first, and that the children will have their own blessings in life, to not worry so much.  And now, my son had not only graduated from university, he’d also served his army terms, and is ready, to head off abroad for a graduate degree.  Two years ago, my daughter wanted to go to the States to study too, she didn’t want to go through a middleman company, did everything herself, in the end, all the schools she’d applied to for the first year didn’t take her at all, I was so totally worried, and, my husband said coldly, “why you so hurried, when the timing is right, she shall fly!”, turns out, my daughter flew abroad without any troubles last year, and is now, living her dreams of going to study abroad.

I told Meng, at the time when my husband said those words to me, I too, felt, that he was turning me down, and was very annoying, but later on, I’d thought about it, everything he’d told me was reasonable too, and, if the two of us got into it back then, then, the results may have been a whole lot worse.

And so, I’d told Meng, “it is difficult, making a marriage work, and if you can’t change him, then, change your thoughts, see him as your best guardian then!” but, I believe, that at the time of the events, as husbands, you should NOT say anything, just give your other half a hug, that, is the best way to soothe them.

And here, you still see the gender difference of the expectations of what we women are searching for, when we complained to you, and how you would automatically TACKLE our problems FOR us, when in actuality, all you need, is to just SIT, and listen to us rant, and, after we ranted whatever it was that was bugging the HELL out of us to you, we feel, a WHOLE lot better, but, you losers still take that “problem-solving” approach, and this, will ALWAYS be what’s between the genders when we communicate, because that, is how the male and female minds think differently!

For Better or For Worse, Forever, a Husband & Wife

DAMN, so, we’re BOUND, for life???  How’d THIS happen!!!

For better or for worse, forever, a husband, and wife, that, was the promise we’d, “signed on” for, well, that was before, either one of us realized, that life was going to get in the way of love, that life was going to, RUIN the love we felt for one another…

For better or for worse, forever, a husband and wife, doesn’t that make you want to KILL yourselves?  I mean, doesn’t the THOUGHT of serving LIFETIME in P-R-I-S-O-N, with THIS other person, as your permanent CELL mate gets you CRAZY?  For better or for worse, forever, a husband and wife, but WHY?  I thought, I was only, playing HOUSE, that I still get to go back to my mom’s place to live after the game of house was over.

For better or for worse, forever, a husband and wife, this, was NOT how long I’d expected marriages to last, after all, wasn’t marriage an “institution”?  Well, I may be going NUTS, but, I’m still NOT NUTS enough, to be “institutionalized” yet that’s for certain!

For better or for worse, forever, a husband and wife, but WHY?  What if, I don’t love you anymore one day, and just wanted out?  Am I still bound, by the law, or even, a higher order of things, to you???

Been Married for Five Years, But Still Had Yet to Register at the Land Offices, on Marriage

The way here is, even IF you’d gone through the whole thing, IF you didn’t get registered at the land offices, you’re still, NOT married, translated…

The age-old statement of, “Marriage is the burial site of love”, after the younger, years, take away the sweetened, outer shells of marriage, what, kind of attraction is in, that piece of marriage certificate?  The registrations of marriage may have solved the problem of bigamy, but, it’d also brought the onset of “falsified marriages” too.

My coworker, Wen had been married for five years now, the more correct way of stating it, is that all of us got invited to her ceremony five years ago, but, she just didn’t quite find the time to go to the land offices to register, and, she’d never taken a leave of absence for her honeymoon.  The housing prices are hiking up, and so, she’d delayed her plans for buying a house indefinitely; getting pregnant, having a child, is simply, too troubling, and, she’d looked upon it, instead of working hard at it.  When we’d asked her how married life was, she’d always, not told us in clear details.

After she wed, Wen’s husband worked late, at first, she’d once asked him to come home early, so they could work on their marriage together, maybe, for a home cooked meal, or, heading out to the food shop at the entry of their alley to dine, take a long walk home, catch up on one another’s day.  But the husband always comes home tired, and, the last bit of energy he had, was spent on taking a shower, and hitting the sack.  Every word of how are you from Wen became like torture to him, slowly, they’d returned BACK to their ways of life from before they were wed, two single roommates, under the same roof.

A few years back, the coworkers were making fun, if they didn’t register for their marriage, they not only didn’t need to file their taxes jointly, they’d not needed to file for divorce, and, ladies without the names in the “spouse” column are more attractive, besides, the elders of the couple believed that they were already wed, they wouldn’t ask them when the date is, nor does she need to hear the threats of how a woman’s youth is gone by quickly.  But, as the years flew by, we’d all started, consoling Wen, to get registered for her marriage.

Recently, Wen’s husband had given her an ultimatum for the registration of their marriage, but, Wen kept dodging the subject, the honeymoon wasn’t to her liking, they both worked late, until neither one of them was in the mood anymore, there’s not enough pros for the marriage, and too many cons, all the problems that were there, at the time of his proposal to her, were now, all taken back out, and reexamined, and, these five years became like a trial marriage, putting ALL the cons out on the tables, and, to walk into the local land offices, to finalize the process, became even harder for them.  If marriage is a marathon, these five years of false marriage, are they included, in the process?

Originally, Wen’s husband who was just too lazy to go through the procedures of registering for marriage, to take the days off for the honeymoon, is now, panicky, and would take her out to dine on her birthday, sent roses to the office, and chauffeurs her to and from work, in the midst of his own busy schedules.  If he’d only know, that you must ring twice, to propose, then, why did he skip a step, causing this trouble for himself right now?

So, you’re married, but not registered yet, so, you’re NOT, technically, married, NOT by the views of the law, and, this couple just kept putting things off, longer, longer, longer, AND longer, until they both got spent, and, neither one of them wanted to go through the procedurals, and, their marriage is still NOT recognized, in the eyes of the LAW!!!

The Reasons for Not Wanting to Marry

Found on Yahoo!.com, Taiwan, translated…

Marriage, is a killer of fairytales!  But, in the traditional beliefs, people tend to still think, that when boys and girls get to marrying age, they should get wed, and, in order for a person, to be fulfilled, the only way is by finding that certain someone, have babies, and, grow old together!

The story book endings of “Then they all lived happily ever after”, but, the princess has NO worries of getting turned into a yellow-faced hag, and the prince don’t have to worry about making enough money, for his princess and him, and a baby too!  When marriage is NO longer the ONLY choice of modern day people, more and more are choosing to stay single, and the rate of marriage, is dropping to, an all-time low too.  And, what, are the reasons, of people not wanting to marry now?  Let’s take a look, at a poll, conducted by DailyView here…

No. 10: Not Wanting to Have Children…

After you marry, the elders will start asking you, when are you going to have a child, but modern day men and women said, that they’d seen a TON of out of control children, making them fear, or that they’re worried, that having children will keep them from doing what they enjoyed from before, or that raising children is equivalent to setting money on FIRE!  And, there are, other women who believe, that it’d hurt too much, having babies, so, they don’t want to, having this sort of a pressure.

And, without having children, there’s no pressure, of providing the child with a normal family.  Love, is the most wonderful thing in the world, and, haven’t you heard the saying of, “Marriage is a burial site for love”?

No. 9 The Parents Don’t Like Who You’re Dating

Marriage is a matter to two families, and, in order to have marital bliss, the marriage MUST be blessed by the parents, after all, your parents DID raise you up, from “scratch”!  And besides, “the Words of the Wise, Comes from the Old”, this, is truly scary, the parents had more bread and rice than the milk formulas you’d had.  There must be reasons, for WHY they’re against who you’re dating.

No. 8 I Don’t Want to Settle Down Yet

A lot of people who don’t want to marry said, that they wouldn’t want to give up an entire forest for just one tree, in other words, they want to meet more members of the opposite sex, instead of settling down with just that one other person.  Unless the law toss away the rule on monogamy, otherwise, it would be hard, to get these individuals to feel interested in marriage at all, unless, the person had grown old and gray, and lost the ability to “fish”, then, they’d start to, envy those who are already married, with children!  And, all that the person can hope for by then, is that it is still, not too late.

No. 7 We Can’t Quite Afford it Yet

Without a house, where, are we going to live?  Without money, we don’t dare having children, do we?  The problems of economics became a primary reason why the younger generations are fearing marriage, and, they felt the need to wait until they have money, car, a house, and by then, the love had gone, bland.  On top of that, some girls dream of having the dream wedding, which will burn, a lot of money too!  And, if you want to wait, until he has the money, to give you the wedding of your dreams, go find yourselves another Jay Chou!

No. 6 Disappointed by Love

No. 5 I Need to Focus on My Career

No. 4 Being Married is Just Having that Extra Piece of Paper

No. 3 Fearing One’s Own Divorce

No. 2 Waiting for True Love

No. 1 Wanting to be Free

And, that, would be, THE assortment of EXCUSES, for not wanting to marry, and, what it worlds down to is still, that you’re WAY too immature, WAY too unwilling, WAY too naïve (because you’re still waiting for that Prince Charming OR Dumb Blonde Princess, to fall for you, and, you ain’t gettin’ NO younger, ladies!
