Rejection goes both ways. If there are Indian women who find you avoidable, then equally, there are some Indian women whom you should avoid – at any cost.
Contrary to what Indian women choose to believe, all Indian men are not wife-beaters, drunkards, womanisers, gamblers, dowry-mongers, perverts and misogynistic rectums. Guess what, most of us are actually pretty decent guys.
And totally contrary to what Indian women claim, all Indian women are definitely not Sati Savitris, Jhansi ki ranis and paragons of virtue.
In my life, I’ve seen five types of Indian woman that are best avoided. While marrying such women is far from advisable, be thankful if you get dumped by any of the women described below. They’ve done you a favor, believe me.
One speaks from hard experience, very hard experience!
The Tease will never give you a straight answer to a straight question, she takes at least 24 hours to respond to any message, she is vague about what she does for a living, gives you a mysterious smirk when you ask her out and implies there are several other suitors in the queue, cuts off your calls, ignores you for weeks and generally treats you like an excretory product.
The intention is to drive you wild with desire and make you chase her indefinitely. Such women are either extremely insecure or extremely arrogant. Either way, you deserve much better.
Walk away, my friend. Take out your mobile phone, locate her number – and press delete.
The Super-duper Corporate Amazon: Aggressive, rude and raucous, her phone constantly rings, she drives only a Mercedes or the like, pays more attention to her iPad than to you, and makes it very clear to you and the world that she has ‘arrived’.
In an Indian society dominated by foul, boorish men like yourself, she has carved her own special place using her superior intellect and by sheer determination.
Obviously, she will accept only a Bill Gates or equivalent, as her royal consort. It is very unlikely, as I pointed out to one such super-duper amazon, that a Bill Gates or equivalent would want such a woman in his life. But that simple logic never occurs to these women.
I admire women who are successful in their corporate careers, especially those who are more successful than I am. But, I prefer women who allow success to speak for itself – and I prefer successful women with good manners.
Turn around and walk away, mon ami. And don’t worry. Bill Gates doesn’t want her, either.
The Not-so-subtle Gold-digger: Manliness, according to this type of Indian female, is proven by the possession of expensive gadgets, fancy cars, multiple villas, a few kilos of gold and diamonds, and especially, a US or Canadian citizenship.
If you have none of the above, you’re not ‘man’ enough for her. She accepts only the best, you see. By herself she is a pathetic, pretentious loser who has nothing to offer you in return, but that is beside the point.
Characteristic symptom of the gold-digger: She never offers to pay the bill. Yeah, we ‘misogynists’ don’t really mind if you offer to pay once in a while.
The hard fact is, there are far too many gold-diggers in urban Indian society. To give them benefit of doubt, I suppose these women have been taught by their parents that only a rich man can keep them happy and is worthy of respect. That is what one self-admitted gold-digger once told me, before dumping me for a richer man.
Whatever. Walk away, amigo. And save both your money and your self-respect.
The Grimly Brave Woman of Misery: Life is hard. For men and women alike. And misery is contagious. You do not need a whiner in your life. Just as no woman wants a whining man, no man deserves a perennially miserable woman.
She always complains about how tough her life is, how bad her job is, how cruel her ex was, how her back always hurts, and how bravely she copes with all her problems. If only, she says, if only there’s a good man who can take care of her – and listen to her whining for the rest of her life. Sigh!
And guess what, you are that fortunate man! You are the only good man she’s ever met who listens to her so patiently.
Yeah buddy, you two will live happily ever after!
The Mistress of Malice: Vain, vicious, vengeful, and manipulative, this type is motivated by sheer malice. Her entire existence is centered around her own self, she craves attention and praise at all times. Woe betide any man who, according to her, does not please her ego enough. She enjoys inflicting emotional hurt on her man by snubbing and humiliating him in public.
By far, this is the most dangerous type of Indian woman. She will stop at nothing to achieve her ends, even it means abusing the law to get you. And no one knows this better than I do.
Jails in our country are filled with men who’ve been trapped in fake dowry and domestic violence cases. Yes, these women do exist in our society. There are many of them. And it is quite difficult to spot them.
Malicious women are very clever at hiding their malice from you – until it is too late.
There are good Indian men. There are bad Indian women. Which one you land up with, depends on you.
A good woman is one who is with you simply because she is happy to be with you.
She will be just as happy to get into a crowded bus with you, as into a fancy limo. Just as happy to share idli-vada sambar at the local darshini, as a buffet at a 5-star hotel. She’s just as secure in her career as she is proud of yours.
A good woman is comfortable about her body and mature about bodily matters. Gracefully accepts that you will age and wither – and so will she.
A sexy body will decay. Character will not. Flesh and bone will rot. Inner beauty will not. Wealth will vanish. Values will not. A devout person is not necessarily a good person. A moral atheist is far better than an immoral religious thug. A good woman will understand all of this.
There is absolutely no shortage of good women in our country. You just need to look in the right places.
And if you are lucky enough to get a good woman in your life, please hold on to her very tightly.
Or I might take her away from you!
Cheers … Srini.
