READ­ERS HAVE THEIR SAY

Cosmopolitan (India) - - LOVE & LUST -

“He must be so­phis­ti­cated. For me, bad ta­ble man­ners are a turn off. If he can’t tell the soup spoon from the dessert spoon then, Hous­ton, we have a prob­lem.”

AMRISHA SARIN, 26

“My deal breaker would be a guy who gets teary- eyed too of­ten. It is ac­cept­able if the oc­ca­sion de­mands it, like a funeral. But I don’t need to see the water works just be­cause he needs to ex­press his ‘ sen­si­tive’ side. I feel it’s a bit wimpy.”

NI­HARIKA BIN­DRA BA­GAI, 26

“I’d dump a guy if he cheated on me— no two ways about that. It’s quite sim­ple re­ally: if you cheat on me, you don’t de­serve to have me.”

DEVINA BAD­HWAR, 28

“Rush­ing into things freaks me out. Like if we’re on our third date and he makes me meet his par­ents... things re­ally need to slow down.”

MEENAKSHI JOSHI SHARMA, 25

“My deal breaker would have to be play­ing ‘ fol­low the leader’. Most guys think they know every­thing and that their part­ner should just blindly fol­low them, which is a com­plete no- no for me.”

SUMER SARIN, 32

“Lack of hy­giene is such a deal breaker. If you fol­low the five- sec­ond rule for food dropped on the ground, I’m go­ing to fol­low the one- sec­ond rule ( the time it’ll take for me to run away).”

AM­BAR VENKATRAMAN, 31 VIDUR PARASHAR, 30 MAL­LIKA NATH HANDA, 28

“Teeth that are a den­tist’s dream and bad BO are things that make me bail— a smile worth a mil­lion dol­lars and a fra­grance to re­mem­ber is the way to go.” “In a re­la­tion­ship, you should be com­pat­i­ble. For me, she must en­joy food, since I do and I’m in the food busi­ness, and she should do that with­out get­ting it stuck in her teeth.”

SUKHMANI SINGH SARIN, 31

“Dis­hon­esty! White lies, big lies— they’re all the same. Be­ing hon­est is the only thing that works.” “In re­la­tion­ships, my deal breaker has al­ways been mamma’s boys. If you only want your mommy all the time, then stay home. Luck­ily, my hus­band is far from that.”
