Dating in India is an extreme sport. We're always scared to hang out with our boyfriends. Getting comfortable with them or any PDA is out of the question because you don't know who'll spot you where. You may not even care about them spotting you but the distorted versions of the truth that may be spread are enough to have anybody up at night. It's especially bad when a desi aunty spots you - for them gossiping is a national sport and you better believe they are champions at it. So here are some fun excuses to give when those nosy desi aunties spot you being a little mushy (or even just taking a walk in the mall) with your boyfriend.
Now she can't possibly know everyone in your family, can she?
She won't ask for any more explanations after this!
A safe excuse. If you run into him randomly, there is nothing she (or your parents) can do!
She may believe you, she may not believe you. It's a risk!
That'll justify having a conversation with him!
Tell her to hire one for herself too!
She may insist on accompanying you to the police, though!
Deny any association at all. Nothing she can do about it!
Lame, but may work. Again, it's a risk!
While these excuses may seem funny, you need to know that, at the end of the day, you don't need to justify yourself to anybody, least of all these aunties who love interfering in everyone's lives. It is your life and you're free to do as you please!
