Unattractive Things Guys Do

Let’s start by agreeing that men aren’t unicorns – they’re mules, at best. As much as we love them, adore them, secretly stalk them and accidentally double tap a picture from 47 weeks ago (me), they certainly have a way of making us grit our teeth just like when chalk skids on a blackboard.

This week’s update is inspired by the social media post on the sexual abuse two girls were faced in a university in the hills. I was appalled to read this. I wanted to know why they didn’t defend themselves – only to realize they couldn’t. Somehow, men, though a few in number, have a way of intimidating women.

I thought of compiling a list of things that make men look less attractive. I could go on forever, but after having thought this through for 2 days, here are my thoughts. Do let me know if I have missed out on anything!

1.) Holla-Back Girl:
I may have said this before, but since of late, I keep getting called ‘Dude' or its Sinhala equivalent ‘Machan’ too often. It’s from guys whose intents are purely platonic; I really don’t care because they don’t have abs either. However, I am not sure if he keeps enunciating this to make sure I don’t think there’s anything beyond this.
Just because I haven't held hands with a boy in three years, I will NOT kidnap anyone who makes eye contact with me. Unless it’s Nick Bateman. Case closed.

2.) Dizz-Mizz:
I have literally said the same thing as the next guy in a corporate context and have had a polite, ‘Well, that's impressive, let's see what we can do about it", and the guy who says the very same thing as me gets a thundering applause and a promotion.
If you argue this point, you are then summoned for not being emotionally intelligent. #Men

3.) Classified but Clueless:
If you have heard men call a woman a slut for wearing stiletto heels with an LBD a slut, or a girl with multiple piercings a wh*re, we associate the same kind of ‘lowly’. If she is comfortable to wear just her granny panties, it shouldn’t bother you, unless a.) You are that panty b.) You pay all her bills c.) You are her. 

4.) St. Attire:
My Momma raised me to believe that being badly dressed is a form of bad manners. What is it with guys who think it’s okay to wear shorts to Church? Or have their jeans dangling from their knees with all the world to see their urg-lay boxers? We don’t live in the Bronx. This is Colombo; a small community who shouldn’t see your undies. Ever.

5.) A Hell Naw:

I think one of the least unattractive traits a guy can possess is one in which he openly debases a woman by calling her a ‘B*tch' because that's how cool kids do it. This ‘b*tch' has done absolutely nothing to deserve this title; she’s just an average girl. Now, I fully understand that you can call people what you want in private; my BFF and I have code names for just about anyone, but showing a little respect goes a long way in anyone’s books.
I also learned that ‘I hit it' is not to be taken in a literal sense; it's just a really insecure way of telling the world at large how low your self-esteem and worth is.
Here’s a cactus – DO rub it on your face, please.

6.) Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire:
This is to say the magical eight-letter phrase hoping a girl would give him a ‘raise’. Sadly, this happens quite often. To top this off, this is discussed at full length with his posse.

7.) Holden’ is Golden:
If you’ve had close shaves on having your already flat nose even flatter because the chap in front of you didn’t hold the door for you as a general form of courtesy, you know exactly what I mean. This changes slightly on how deep your cleavage is; you might find a little more than doors being open then.

8.) Mr. Insta-Famous:
It's no lie that we all stalk our crushes so that we have enough ‘material' to talk about IRL. Have you even said, ‘Nope' three seconds into uncovering his Instagram page? I have. What a great fall that was, from heavenly to slovenly. An average guy should have no more than 3 selfies for the rest of his life.
Anything beyond this and you know that he is the centre of HIS universe.

9.) Virgin Mojito:
For him, it's absolutely fine to play around and 'sow his seed', but isn't it ridiculous how they want to marry untouched virgins? What's worse is that when they explain that as a guy it's okay to have a taste of the world, but their partners' genitalia must be secured with lock and key.

As much as I would like to dispose of men altogether we can't; there's procreation to think about. What do we do? Do we go about with a blind eye? I think we get accustomed to it somehow, and it fails to bother us after a ce
rtain point. The only compensation is well-chiseled abs.

Nine reasons when men lose their attractiveness - there's more, but I have a limit on words.

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…
