Ed­i­tor’s Let­ter

Cosmopolitan (India) - - EDITOR'S LETTER - Nan­dini Bhalla, Ed­i­tor nan­dini.bhalla@in­to­day.com

For a great many years, I be­lieved re­la­tion­ships had a lot to do with destiny. You know, the idea that you’ll meet a guy when the ‘time is right’, and he’ll fall in love with you if it’s ‘part of life’s big plan’, and you’ll get mar­ried and make ba­bies if it’s ‘in the cards’. It took me some ex­pe­ri­ence (and, ad­mit­tedly, a lot of

Cos­mos snuck from mum’s drawer) to re­alise that re­la­tion­ships are more than just serendip­ity, they’re a full-bod­ied sci­ence!

Love mat­ters are a bit like solv­ing the Ru­bik’s Cube. If you go about one hap­haz­ardly, you’ll end up frus­trated, cranky, and stuck with a bunch of dis­jointed colours with ADD. But ap­ply logic to the puz­zle—work­ing layer by layer, ro­tat­ing ac­cord­ing to colour, per­mut­ing the cor­ners—and it all sud­denly comes to­gether. And that’s pretty much how re­la­tion­ships work, too. While your meet­ing may be a co­in­ci­dence (though stud­ies say there’s sci­ence to o that, too), ev­ery­thing from thereon is in your hands. From how many times you call him in a day, to the ex­act words you use dur­ing a fight and the cou­ple-y habits you cul­ti­vate, be­hav­iour and re­ac­tion can greatly im­prove the chances of your bond.

It’s this kind of logic-based love ad­vice that Cosmo has al­ways been a pro at. And this par­tic­u­lar is­sue—our Love, Sex, and Men spe­cial—does what we do best, even bet­ter. To cel­e­brate the month of ro­mance, we’ve put to­gether a spe­cial sec­tion that’s de­voted to de­cod­ing all mat­ters of the heart. From the 100 best sex tips (ever!) to four rather in­nocu­ous words that prom­ise to se­duce any man (any­where), fun games that t help you read his mind, and the un­ex­pected trait men look for in a woman, we’ve sum­moned the best ex­perts and re­search to bring you in­for­ma­tion you can use, that’s s been proven to work. In other words, if your re­la­tion­ship were a Ru­bik’s Cube, this is­sue is your ul­ti­mate cheat sheet to solv­ing it!

Have a lurvly Fe­bru­ary,
