Get rid of Fake Accent Syndrome:
You know what I am hinting at. It’s one of the most common problems of dating a foreigner.
It’s silly to present a different version of yourself by faking an accent to ‘impress your date.’ It’s a colossal turn-off!
Not only will your date cringe at the sound of your words, but they might also think you’re kind of imitating them.
And trust me, guys, this kind of imitation is not at all flattering.
Are you planning to date NRI people? Then, keep reading this article by none other than Shibani Dandekar.
The what, how, why:
Of course, not the right question to ask when you date an NRI person. You’re very interested to know what your NRI date is all about.
The right questions on your first date can make the sparks fly, and the wrong ones can set a fire, like these:
“Have you/why haven’t you applied for a permanent residency abroad?” (super intrusive)
“Hey! Are you earning more or less in India?” (Whoa! Are you my accountant?)
“Do you think Indian men are better in the sack?” (Uff!)
Remember, it’s a date, not an investigation. So keep the questions light and enjoyable when you are dating a foreigner!
The true taste of India:
Ditch the regular pasta or pizza joint and go for something Shuddh Desi. Introduce your date to the heart of the streets- like golgappa and everything droolicious!
These mouth-watering delights give a real flavor of India and are sure to wow them over. P.S: They’ll forever be in your debt for opening their world to the desi awesomeness.
Do keep in mind, just because your date has lived in a ‘foreign land’ doesn’t mean they will be very ‘cool’ with kissing on a first date.
Guess their mood, read their lips, and you know what’s the right thing to do!
