The Seven Sri Lankan Guys You will Date

You might be thinking, ‘Just seven? Is that all?' Absolutely not! These are the most popular types that you and I have would possibly have gone through in our years of dating, or perhaps, are still dating. I took to social media to ask girls specifically about the types of guys they have dated in the past – and I wasn't surprised. Every time they tell me of a hilarious incident, or a ‘mistake' they met, I couldn't help but put a name and face to these guys whom I had encountered in my own life. It's almost as if these guys did an amoeba move on us and multiplied by the millions when we weren't looking.

1. The Good Guy
If you're 17 (or 12 in today's context), you have a certain ideal you set for a ‘boyfriend'. The strange thing here is that at this age your ideas are set based on someone you've already met, and not vice versa. Even though he wasn't Zayn Malik, he was the sweetest who remembered your birthday without technology and would patiently listen to you walk through your day for three hours without missing a word. However, peer pressure ebbs at this relationship and you are convinced that you can do better and you break his heart by personifying Elsa, the queen of ice.

2. The 90210 Casanova
Once you’ve convinced yourself that the former didn’t help your popularity soar, you don’t think twice about dating the Spawn of Satan. Now, you won’t recognize him because he lacks a red leather suit, a set of horns and a pitchfork. You will be blinded by his aviators, suave style, slick hair but what you don’t realise that there is nothing ordinary about him, even the qualification.

3. The Mama’s Boy
I don’t know how some women consider it a compliment when a guy likens them to his mother. That’s some deep Freudian disturbance there. It’s worse that all they do is make references to their mother, and are also willing to drop just about anything so that they can attend to their mother’s errands of buying eggs, taking her to No Limit on Saturday evenings, or just driving her from point A to B. It’s bad enough that you have to compete for good guys in this day and age, but it gets a million times worse when your competition is in her mid-fifties, makes cutlets, and also gave birth to him – talk about deep connections.

4. The Bluesy Buster
This type of guy is ‘feeling sad and blue' personified. Think of every injustice a person could experience – he has been through it and thinks that just about everyone is out to get him. So, naturally when he is in a relationship sees you as his emotional tampon and wants you to ‘absorb' his pain. The cunning leech will even twist your arm that his erratic behaviour is because he isn't used to having people side with him in his life.

5. Grease Lightning
You know whom I am talking about if you've walked into his personal bathroom and suspected that he was having an affair with another woman. His bathroom vanity is full of Garnier products, from anti-ageing creams, overnight intense vitamin E moisturizers, to mascara that's meant to cover smidgens of grey in his beard. His nonplussed response to your quivering voice asking, ‘You use all this?' convinces you that he is Travolta, but he really is Revol-ta.

6. Monster Inc
He breaks your heart in the worst imaginable way; hits on your best friends, he might even get married to one of them. He forgets every birthday and never bothers calling you back or responding to texts even though you know full well that his phone is glued to his palm. You might also find unexpected transactions taking place with the use of your credit card details and suspicious packages sent to your home address – but he claims he is so broke that he cannot afford to do Valentines this year.

7. The Great Gatsby
His parents own multiple coconut estates and he is a proud owner of the latest Mercedes, was educated overseas, flies only business class, but has no grasp of what life actually is. Having never stepped in a bus in his thirty-something years of life, he has a snooty view of ‘peasants' who work for a living. You know that it could never work out between you two.

You would have dated on or a few of them; you might even have a 'type' that you go for, like me. Perhaps you are in transition, but I'd like to suggest that if were to line up the men you dated over the years, you will find a clear representation of your mental health.

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…
