10 Reasons why Bollywood movies have screwed our love lives

Here are 10 reasons why Bollywood movies have ensured that we have unrealistically high expectations and failing love lives:

1. Raj Is A Myth
All you lovely ladies who spend your Saturday nights cozying up in bed and watching Diwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge for the thirty seventh time, we’re sorry to break it to you but Raj really doesn’t exist. He is a mythical creature devised by Yash Raj Films to ensure that no man ever lives up to your expectations and consequently, you spend enough money to watch your “ideal” man on screen.

2. Rahul, In A Real Life, Is An Annoying Git
From Kuch Kuch Hota Hai to Kabhie Khushi Kabhi Ghum, Rahul has continued to enamour women across the globe. However, if Rahul existed in real life, he would be an annoying twerp who lays it on too thick and doesn’t know when to stop!

3. Lack of Parental Drama!
You know why Bollywood romances are so awesome? It’s because they have sugar, spice, everything nice and a generous dose of evil parents who aren’t satisfied till their children have tried to elope at least twelve times. Your parents are never going to fill the void that parents like Yashwardhan Raichand or Baldev Singh have made in your vulnerable heart.

4. Best Friend Sweetu Doesn’t Give A Shit
You’ve probably grown up with films where the leading lady has a best friend who is mysteriously always around to give sound advice and a shoulder to cry on, no matter how many times the same crap gets pulled off. In real life, your best friend is going to ask you to shut your face and get over it.

5. The Party Girl Always Wins
Have you had your dose of films like Cocktail and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani? Good! Because we’re here to tell you that the party girl always wins. Have you spent a considerable amount of time being like Diana Penty from Cocktail? Here’s the shocker – the guys don’t really care.

6. The Poor Guy’s Mansion Never Gets Built
Unlike Rohit from Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai or every other cliched film which has a rags to riches story, if your hero no 1 is a pauper, we’re sorry to be the ones to tell you this, in all probability he isn’t going to become a Rockstarr and make that gorgeous Karan Johar-esque mansion.

7. The Geek Never Gets The Girl
Do you believe that the good guy always wins, despite the fact that he is a certified dork? We’re sorry but we couldn’t get to you in time! The Geek really never gets the girl.

8. RoadTrips Are Annoying And The Main Reason For Break Ups
Unlike what they show you in films like Jab We Met and the disasterous Anjaana-Anjaani, roadtrips with your boyfriend aren’t amazing – you will constantly fight about the music, the hotel and you definitely won’t fall in love with them watching their unbathed body. Also, fyi – raids aren’t as fun as Jab We Met made them out to be.

9. Hitting The Bar Isn’t The True Test Of Love
While Bollywood movies make it seem like drunk lovers are something to be desired, in reality, they get dumped on the arse before they can say, “on the rocks”!

tomonotomo love - no devdas

 

10. The Curtain Doesn’t Fall After The Wedding
Most Bollywood romance films lead up to marriage; once the hero and heroine tie the knot, everything is okay in paradise and they walk in to the sunset holding hands. In real life, all romances don’t point to marriage and what happens post that is a whole new article!

10 ways to make your wife happy

1) Introduce her with a compliment

Saying something like “I’d like you to meet my beautiful wife,” or “Here’s my better half” goes farther than you may realize. Publicly recognizing her as your cherished partner validates that you love her.

2) Embrace when you see her

At the end of a long day conquering office battles and keeping the kids from climbing walls, you could both use a loving hug. Make a point of showing you missed her and are glad to be reunited. A big kiss doesn’t hurt, either.

3) Ask her how you can help

If this is a new one for you, she may think there’s a catch. With a sincere willingness to give a helping hand, ask how you can lift her burden. This gesture applies to more than yard work, but being in tune with her needs emotionally and spiritually, as well. Sometimes she just needs a listening ear.

4) Let her pick the movie

Or, if you’re playing games, let her choose. She needs to know her opinion counts in your marriage. Taking turns with these simple choices makes it easier to compromise on the bigger choices together.

5) Forgive her fast

She forgot to pack your lunch, or accidentally broke your TV remote. So, she’s human, after all? With all that she does right, let it go when she makes mistakes. After all, you’re no perfection yourself, cupcake!

6) Hold her hand in public

Some women are less inclined to public displays, but when appropriate, reach out and squeeze her hand. With the reassurance you’re proud she’s yours, she’ll walk a little taller, and smile a little bigger.

7) Write her love letters

You don’t have to be Shakespeare; the thought matters most here. Focus on _specific_things you love about her; the wrinkle in her nose when she laughs or how she finds joy in the little things. You can hide it in her makeup bag, under her pillow, or somewhere else she’ll discover it. She’ll be happily surprised and treasure your words for years to come.

8) Open the door for her

Chivalry is not dead. Opening the door is a gentlemanly way to take care of your lady. She likely grew up wanting to be a princess. Be her prince.

9) Carve out time for consistent date night

In an on-the-go digital world, it’s easy to get caught up in the minutia of kids, work, community, extended family and even church responsibilities. Set aside a weekly special night just for the two of you. It doesn’t need to be costly or extravagant. Just make an effort to court her, as you did when you were dating.

10) Let her fly

As her partner, you are in the best position to help her reach her dreams.

What am I missing out on if I don’t have a girlfriend?

Image

(Answer taken from Quora)

Depends entirely on the girlfriend. Some things you might be missing out on:

  • Soft smells from her hair, her skin, her extra set of clothes that she leaves in your closet
  • Hugs, peekaboo-guess-who, kisses on the back of your neck when you’re hard at work and forgot about the world around you for too long
  • Good cooking, or maybe good-morning coffee, or good takeout
  • Inspiration, shared jokes, mind-bending middle-of-the-night discussions
  • A buddy who’ll hand you a tissue during the sad parts of your favorite movies… you know when Bruce Willis died in that one, you got all choked up, didn’t ya
  • An enthusiastic fan of your career, your writing, your sense of humor, your (terrible) saxophone playing, your pickup games of basketball on Saturday mornings
  • A convert to your football team… at least on the weeks when her fav team isn’t playing yours
  • New music you didn’t know about
  • Someone to tell about that new song you just heard… even if it’s kinda cheesy she’ll probably give it a try
  • Stories of her life before you
  • Someone to brag to, who loves listening to you brag
  • Whispered sweet nothings
  • A helper when you need a hand
  • Someone to help—who shows her appreciation in wild and wonderful ways, like cake when it’s not your birthday
  • Tons of new experiences, new places to go, new foods to try, new friends to learn about, new authors and artists to consider, new lingerie to appreciate
  • Someone to grow into and grow comfortable with
  • Someone to tell secrets to… good ones and bad ones… without judgement
  • Tickling
  • Teasing
  • Phone calls when your boss isn’t within earshot
  • Texts when ur boss isn’t looking
  • A hand to hold, and arms to hold you, when times are tough and you’re not sure you can support your own weight any more
  • A perspective very different from your own, but meltingly familiar
  • Butterflies in your stomach
  • The gentle jealousy of being in a secure relationship with someone who’s a “catch” in your eyes—yet your eyes are the only ones that count to her
  • Massages
  • Caressing
  • French kisses
  • Spooning
  • Someone to be insanely, animalistically, proud of at all times
  • Someone to be insanely, animalistically, protective of at all times
  • Someone to be insane and animalistic with. At any time.  😉

5 Lies Guys Will Always Tell Their Girlfriends

Men lie, women lie too but the difference is that women lie because they are trying to hide something and men lie because they want to avoid a situation altogether.  Here are 5 lies a guy will always tell his girlfriend:

1. I wasn’t checking her out

If you find your guy checking a random woman out at the mall then yes, he probably was. Guys look at other women all the time, the same way girls check other men out. It doesn’t matter if you were going to react or not, men automatically jump to this lie when quizzed about their roving eye.

Image

2. You’re the only woman I think of

Sorry ladies, no matter how romantic this sounds, it isn’t one bit true!  He probably thinks of Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence, his hot neighbour, his hot neighbour’s sister and you but he isn’t going to tell that now, is he!

Image

3. I think you’re the only cute/hot/beautiful girl amongst your friends

Unless you have made the conscious decision of hanging out with butt ugly people, it is entirely impossible that you are the only cute person in your social circle. He’s lying but it’s flattering, so we’re willing to let this one pass.

4. No, I don’t watch porn

Guess who’s keeping him company while you’re busy vacationing! Every guy watches porn once in a while. As long as you aren’t the one being substituted, we think it’s a lie you can live with.

Image

5. Our sex life is private

Men discuss their sex lives, they and a whole host of moronic guy films might tell you otherwise but they discuss sex. They might not get in to the details but they do love to brag.
