Types of Guys in a Single Girl’s Life

Whether or not you realize it, single girls are surrounded by nine common types of guys in their life! Some of us realize it, and some don’t want to realize it. I proudly thought to myself, “So this must be what it’s like having no men in my life”… the thought lasted a few seconds until I realized that to a certain degree I do have men in my life – and not just me, it’s all single ladies the world over.

Read on and let me know if I have missed out on any…

1. Perma-Flirt: Oh, you know this type. I am sure even my mother has this type. Universal vermin who can only converse with you holding “eye” contact with your chest.

2. Charming: He’s no prince, but he is charming. This is the guy you secretly wish asks you out some day. You know that he doesn’t know you beyond your first name but thoughts of him are only second to chocolate chip ice cream.

3. Sergeant Surly: This is a new type I identified earlier this year. He is definitely not interested in you – you’re not his type (near anorexic) and you don’t associate him in a corporate setting, hence you cannot be offended when he says, See you, man’ or ‘No problem, man’. I’m known for my reactions, but you don’t know how to react to this. I figured that all single girls will always have one guy who tests them.
4. Jack Married-Oh: Nice guy; seems friendly enough. For a while you thought his intentions were innocent enough – now, you’re not sure. He doesn’t look up when chanting the mundane ‘good morning’ but you have that feeling you can’t quite peg. You feel as though you shouldn’t associate him fearing what others might think seeing you lunch with him three days in a row – again, you just can’t peg it down.

5. Un-Wanton: This could also be termed ‘friend-zoned’. Most times you are aware of their kind/thoughtful gestures, their sweet texts asking you if you got home alright after an office do, how they never fail to wish you for Christmas… but the switch doesn’t go off in your mind.
You most often pretend not to understand subliminal messaging when he says, ‘I really don’t understand what a douche your Ex was to leave you; I would work towards making you happy if I was him’. Nope, not happening. 

6. X-Rated: This is your Ex. If you were as unfortunate as me to date your co-worker, your office will be a jail cell. Avoiding him, not making eye contact with everyone in case you do with him, having to e-mail every single thing to him because he conveniently decides to play the victim despite cheating on me; it used to make me livid but you will have to deal with this… person.

7. Crush-mas 1999: Am I the only one who constantly runs into her crush from Grade 8? Just last month I ran into mine TWICE – once a brief exchange of hellos, and the next a full-blown conversation about his kids and wife; and I faked an ‘Oooh-look-at-the-time’ just before he asked me how many offspring I have borne. It’s embarrassing because being the gutsy 13-year-old I was, I told him that I fancied him. Seventeen years later it still feels a trillion times worse.

8. Pokemon-No: This is typically a guy who you’ve met, he seems alright almost a ‘Go’; you decide you can have a polite conversation with him. He casually drops the ball saying that you two ‘should meet up for dinner sometime’ – and you play along. Thankfully, it never happens BUT you keep bumping into him socially and he keeps reminding you that you have to get back to him when you are free. You decide you cannot go on “dates” you don’t want to and order the smallest item on the menu anymore.

There you have it! Eight guys who will always be a part of your life even if you are single! Who said being single meant not having men in your life? I didn’t realize it a few days ago, but I do know it now.
Have I missed out on any types? What do these guys represent to you?  Go ahead and hit the ‘share’ button to send this to someone who has been this friend to you – let them know you care. As always, feel free to let me know your thoughts on Ms. Confidential on Facebook, Google+ or Twitter and look out for more reads on!

Relationship Advice from Sri Lankan Aunties

Of Unicorns, Disney Boyfriends, and Glass Slippers

Have fairly tales influenced our decisions? Are the happy endings we read about cause for our constant disappointment?

As I am 27, many many wonderful people take the liberty of reminding me that I am no longer in my ‘blossoming youth’ - I tell them often enough that if they approach these grounds without bodily provision, I will make parts of their anatomies blossom. I am just kidding, I do not say a word, I simply cower away with the most hackneyed excuse of all time ‘I am waiting for my Prince Charming’. To this, I always get the same answer saying that I watch too many sappy movies, read too many Mills & Boons (yes, in secret till I was 20) and watched too many Disney cartoons and I have UNREAL expectations. Can you believe the audacity these people possess?

When I think about this now, I think boys have been influenced by fairy tales far more than girls. Why? If you do think about it, their behaviour, perspectives, and assumptions are rooted in those magical books courtesy o…

Types of Sri Lankan Boyfriends

If you're a Sri Lankan girl under the age of 18, mentioning the ‘B' word will have your parents cartwheeling, calling the best witch doctor in Anuradhapura saying that you're possessed, because, after all, no Sri Lankan female under 30 was allowed to find love on her own accord.
For your Parents, every boy is trying to break open your treasure chest (if you know what I mean) – they are rabid pariahs, almost like anthrax. For every young girl educated in an all-female school until the budding age of 19, they’re lissome creatures, must-haves in every way.
It may not be very evident at first, but Sri Lankan Boyfriends are of several ‘genres’, if you may. Let’s take a look at some of the most obvious types!

1.) Moose:

This is the one who seems to have opinions of humanitarian, thoughts of a poet and a personality of a stone. Scrolling through his news feed, you will find so many interesting posts, quips, and comments, but IRL, he is just like Moose from Archie comics… ‘Duh… that&…

Ways Sri Lankan Girlfriends Drive you Nuts

Sri Lankan girlfriends are the ultimate ‘lunu dehi’ – they're hard to eat and need to be taken in smaller doses with a lot of other things to cut the acidity. The good kind is harder to get a hold of, but you know how amazing your plate of rice tastes with it. The same applies to Sri Lankan girlfriends. This week we pay homage to Sri Lankan girlfriends who seem to master the art of driving their boyfriends loco with carefully concocted ploys like the ones below.
1.)Menu Options Let’s start with my personal favourite. When he texts, “Babe, what do you want to eat?” when he is coming over or is grabbing a takeaway meal, the Sri Lankan girlfriends knows *exactly* what she wants. Whether it is Tipi Tip, Red Velvet Cake, or a 12-pack KFC Hot Drumlets, she knows, but she will wait until her SO tears his hair running out of options. Patiently waiting, tapping her nails, until he consults Yamu and Zomato for all the restaurants in town.
2.)Part Time Bouncer While on the subject of food, on a …

Does Size Matter?

My first question to a close friend after she declares she's just engaged in vigorous copulation is not 'How good was it?' or 'How long did it last?' - It’s ‘How BIG is it?’ I use my hands as means of measurement. Anything from elbow to wrist is a ‘unicorn’ – midway there and I smile my seal of approval. If I have to use my fingers, then it’s a different story altogether.

In strange way, there seems to be a positive correlation between the size of a man's penis and a woman’s satisfaction in bed. Think about it. Women, from the very beginning, have been 'gatherers', which ideally means they sow, reap and they secure provisions for their family. In a contemporary scenario, women are independent and we only expect men to provide the things and feels a dildo cannot. Women are financially independent, confident, career-minded individuals who buy their own Prada bags, drive a swanky number, and book their own vacation air tickets online. As gatherers who presi…
