, a soon to be released book by Amercian authors Ellen Rakieten and Anne Coyle, listing ‘311 Things Guys Do That Guarantee They Won’t Be Dating or Having Sex’ is making news in the US. The things include anything from wearing denim shorts to going dutch on the first date.
In the run up to Valentine’s Day, HT City asked some Delhi girls to point out things that guys do that make them undateable. Guys, pay attention:
Neena Manocha, 23, student: Wearing smelly socks or even wearing them with sandals.
Isha Kapoor, 26, writer: T-shirts with stupid messages such as FBI: Female Body Inspector. It’s just NOT cool.
Stephanie, 29, blogger: Guys who wear their denims below their ass. Tighty-white undies are a big no-no, too.
Disha Jain, 26, BPO employee: Wearing belts with over-sized bulky buckles, as if to compensate for lack of other things!
Anisha Shah, 23, writer: Too much body hair —I think the era of chest hair peeking out of your shirt is long gone.
Harleen Kaur, 24, student: Chains - on your wrist, neck, anywhere! It gives a sort of rowdy vibe that makes a guy unappealing.
Priya Sharma, 21, artist: A fake accent - there are guys who even pronounce their own name with an accent… such a put off.
Trisha Mahajan, 25, theatre artist: Over-gelled hair is just ‘wannabe’.
