– A sense of humour is worth its weight in gold. No woman I know likes to spend a lifetime, or even an evening, with a man who’s dour or self obsessed.

– An ideal guy is the one who can survive a girl who loves to talk, and knows how to handle her moods.

– We are innately more self-conscious, and we do tend to check ourselves out in the mirror often. But that’s not a problem in our eyes.

– When a woman says no, she means no. The Indian urban woman isn’t coy, and she will tell you if she wants to be with you.

– We like men who dance well. We seriously do. Some rhythm, a genuine love for the art, and the fun you have on the dance floor, makes all the difference to the way we look at you.

– As we get older, we lose patience with this ‘hard to get’ approach. Keep us hanging, or take days to call back, and we will lose interest.

– Don’t kiss and tell. And don’t abuse your ex. It will only make you come across as insensitive.

– Please ask for directions the next time you are lost. It won’t make you look incompetent. We will like the fact that we aren’t going around in circles.
