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's a filter?... I thought those flowers actually grew on your head'. Your attempts at conversation will be most appreciated.

2.) The Kradled – Kolla:

This is the Freudian-Folly who looks hella good, but let's be real, the only reason why he's into you is that your chicken curry is only second to his mother's. Also, he cannot begin a conversation without referring to him beloved 'Ammi'. Even his snores vaguely sound like 'Ammi'.

3.) Mr Academicado:

Amongst these local Goofies, you also find the rare academic. He has printed motivational quotes all over his cubicle, a printed A4 detailing his short and long-term goals with career objectives and corresponding ages. As you leaf through Magazines and dog-ear beautiful wedding gowns, he as a heavy folder full of brochures from universities for his impending doctorate.

4.) Sugar Puppy:

This one’s a mystifying as Santa Claus. This guy makes you question if he's with you for the food, treats, and gifts you shower over him. He doesn't remember your anniversary, and has your number saved under a pseudonym, just in case ‘Ammi doesn't see the call'. 

5.) Too Fast, Too Furious:

These are rare, but you do find the Boyfriends who try to propose to you after 3 days of texting, ‘you seem like the girl my parents will approve of’. Chances are that he has an uncle who has written off a few assets he will only receive upon bearing an heir or his parents may not be accepting of his sexual preferences and is forcing him to wed in style.

6.) Senor El Selfo:

This one only wants a smashing profile picture. He spends time perfectly his selfie smile and cannot carry on a conversation as he is too busy trying to make you look ethereal.  You can be in a coma, but you will still be hashtagged ‘sleeping beauty’.

7.) The Perfect Match:

Your dates revolve around the Sri Lankan Cricket tours or Satanta’s rugby fixtures. Sanga is his ‘main man’, his constant thoughts revolve around Lahiru Sirimanne, and he has never gotten over his Ex, Angelo Mathews. You don’t qualify to be in his top ten unless your face is the shape of a bat and your derrière, a red leather ball.

8.) Does he ‘Whisk’ you Away?

For a few others, a half Mendis is all he needs to get his fix. It can be celebratory, sorrow, defeat, or just a chill pill, Mendis is what he resorts to. You’re just, well, a girl he regards affectionately.

Sri Lankan Boyfriends take many forms; grievances aside, Colombo has produced its fair lot buoyant beings in different shapes and sizes – and there’s plenty of go around, although Damsels constantly complain about the lacking of good guys.

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…

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…
