Mentioning the term ‘Dating’ in India evokes the same reaction as mentioning ‘Voldemort’ in Hogwarts would. We may have landed on the moon and all that jazz but ‘dating’ is still considered a taboo. Nevertheless, we, like normal people around the world, go on dates. But it ain’t that simple... Here are a few things about dating every Indian girl will relate to!
Because how dare you get to know a guy before taking 7 pheras with him and awkwardly waiting for him on the bed on your wedding night?!
You know better than to go to a cafe or a restaurant within 5kms of your home or the workplace of either of your parents!
Karan becomes Karuna, Shivansh becomes Shivani and Aditya becomes Aditi! Story of our lives!
Because you can't be too obvious about it, na? Also, if you tell your mom you are going ‘out’ she is going to assume you are going on a date.
Because you are using every single one of them!
Most. Annoying. Thing. Ever!
And that's why you cannot leave home without having breakfast OR wear a salwaar kameez that day. Because then every one is gonna think that you have kept the ‘vrat’!
And every time your mom warns you that she is going to clean your room, you make sure you run like a ninja and clean it yourself before she can set foot into your room!
And you'll be standing there thinking, ‘Excuse me? When did I promise to print a tabloid about my romantic life?’
