What is with people not being able to digest the fact that a woman above 25 years cannot stay single? It is literally everywhere that a woman crossing that age should be married or at least be having a stable boyfriend. Crazy! Aren't they?
Take the example of our Bollywood celebrities whose, "we are just friends" line is the most frequently used one in their entire acting career. Even then, the media is constantly after them to get any news on their affairs and relationships. Poor celebrities then apparently get hooked with their fellow actors whom they just met or maybe were caught saying 'hi' to each other.
