Dating an Indian guy has been a subject of interest for many western women and the results are more apparent these days. There are many marriages and the list continues to grow. The reason why this topic is not glorified or sensationalized is that Indian men like to keep their charms and affairs under the carpet, and the media, both native and western is happy about it. They don’t objectify themselves and definitely don’t allow it by other sources too. This means less of media interest and commercial viability. Hence, you don’t find this aspect of Indian dating, that’s dating an Indian guy or the aftermath, good or bad covering headlines or Page 3 corners. But, here are some things you need to remember while you date a desi munda.
- Be cautious and careful about your dignity: Thanks to Bollywood, Indian men of many hue and color are gaining more and more prominence and covetousness amongst western men. That they have some fittest genes is no myth now. They make real good, caring boyfriends who believe in family values. But there’s a side you need to remember always. Indian men don’t like their women being an easy entity to be hit by others. They prefer to be exclusive and special. They want their women to stay away from certain circles and people, not because he is personally against that thing, but he doesn’t like the idea of his girl getting linked to a group, system, circle or idea.
- Food and sentiment: Indian men grow on and swear by their mother’s food. Almost 99% of them regard the food cooked by their mothers as the world’s safest, purest and best food. More than the gastronomical delight, it’s the satisfaction of the soul and security derived from a simple, mom-made dish that they are mad about. You, in any way, mustn’t hurt this sentiment when he is away from his mother and misses her meals. You also shouldn’t compare that food with anything else since the guys hold that most special. Comparison after marriage is pertinent but during the course of Indian dating, do try to avoid it.
- Forcing him to adapt to other cuisines: Indian men aren’t that flexible when it comes to cuisines and culinary preferences. They’d rather have you go to their favorite Indian restaurant for some desi meals than hit the swankiest eatery in town providing the best Italian food. They are particular about the delicacies of their land and are unabashed about it. Any resentful talk or attitude for it doesn’t go down well with them.
- Clothes and fashion: Indian men have their own way and ideas of dressing. While they can wear both ethnic and western apparels with the same poise and confidence, you might ruffle them the wrong way in asking to wear a luxury fit or tuxedo. They can have some reservations.
Your dressing too is very important. Initially, when you both meet up, you can be in your casual or minimal best if you wish. If things take a positive turn and you take it seriously forward, it’d be better to dress in the Indian way, that’s the ethnic way. Minimalism, in this context, doesn’t go down well with the average Indian men.
