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 glitzy fine-dining date, she may casually say that she is open to adventurous evenings; like a Kottu and hot tea at Raheemas or Isso Wadey at Galle Face followed by a casual stroll – except she turns up dressed to the nines, complete with Louboutins, facial contouring so on point that the Knuckles range is put to shame and a generous sprinkling of French fragrance. When you eyeball her and casually drive to a coffee shop in an enclosed environ of a city hotel, she blames you for having no imagination. If only people knew the real struggles guys faced.

3.)    Faker-gencies:
We all know that Sri Lankan women may have slight tendencies to be jealous and possessive, so there’s the occasional text while you are in meetings, feigning emergencies, just so they would check if the office Sl*t has joined the meeting too? She instinctively knows that the Sl*t has a loose personality (and underwear), so no matter how many times you assure her that you aren’t interested, she will still try.
4.)    Economic Crisis
You know how Sri Lankan girlfriends are always on the topic of saving money? They ask you why you purchase mobile phone guards, software, and phone accessories and berate you with reminders of countless other things that money could have been used for. While all this is great, they will in return spend half of their disposable income at Bodyshop to purchase organic face masks. Refrain from asking the logic behind it or experience wrath in dragon-like fury coupled with a 90-minute long lecture on financial independence in the 21st century. These, my dear men, are what are called ‘essentials’ – they are also on par with oxygen and water.

5.)    Nope for Poke 
Pok√©mon Go is a serious ‘No’. You could get shot for playing this game longer than 3 minutes. However, you aren’t supposed to breathe when she is binge watching The Simpsons for hours.

6.)    Forever Timeless
She will drill you for days for taking a few hours to reply her message or a tagged comment on Facebook, but the minute you question her on her delay in responding or not answering a phone call you are treated to an earful. Apparently, by caring for her you invade her space and stifle her.

7.)    Polarities
The Sri Lankan girlfriend doesn’t understand the concept of ‘middle ground’. She has two distinct moods – Victoria’s Secret Model or Derelict. Need an example? Suggest a run at Independence Square and she will look Barbie-esque in her Nike gear. Suggest casual post-work drinks, there a great chance she wouldn’t run a comb through her man and call it ‘freedom’.

There’s a fine chance that you are reading through this and shaking your head in agreement. Like it or not, this is just embedded in a Sri Lankan woman’s genes. There’s no challenging any of this; these species are right at the top of the food chain. If your girlfriend shows signs of doing one or more things, just know that despite the weirdness, she is all yours.

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&…

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…
