Romance is all that Doha needs♥

After 10 years in Doha, I know exactly what the city needs to make it a happier place.

None of the craved for achievements — tallest, largest, first, biggest, most vulgar, most obnoxious – will accomplish what a little bit of ROMANCE could.

♥If ever there were a place that desperately needed a heavy dose of romance, it’s this♥

Lust there is aplenty.

But there is a huge vacuum where simple, innocent romance should be.

I’ve worked here for 8 years – longer than I have in India – but what makes this experience less memorable/interesting is the lack of romance.

I’m very nostalgic about workplace romances (not flings). Not only because I enjoyed it, but also because I’ve seen other relationships at work. It brings relief to the monotony of a job. It brings excitement to a daily routine. It makes people nicer and more agreeable.

And nicer and more agreeable folks are what we need here.

  • Maybe if the mean, rude women we see in the souqs were not objects of lust, but a subject of romance, they would smile more, be more cheerful…
  • If the lecherous men had a love-interest, a muse, they would be less aggressive and less frustrated…
  • Maybe a bit more romance would mean a lot less pointless, desperate Bluetooth messaging in public places…

Romance is ALL we need…

 

…apart from the fancy car in the garage and the petrobucks in the bank.

        Nice thoughts V. Seriously Doha is a laggard. Just came across an old friend who got married to a colleague whom he met, married and is living in Dubai…guess the UAE is not as bad.

I would love to hear your feedback. So write to me: umm.of.on@gmail.com
