Several days later I accepted his offer to go out for dinner. But just as we were parking to go into the restaurant he pulled out a three pack of condoms and told me he was ready. I struggled to maintain my composure. Frankly, I was pissed! How dare he assume he would get sex from me on the first date! After taking a couple of calming breaths, I asked him what gave him the idea that I was going to have sex with him on our date. He seemed hurt, and equally shocked that I was upset.
After further discussion he explained that he got that impression from watching American TV shows like Sex in the City and Desperate Housewives. But when I finally did I had a much better experience. It helped tremendously with my expectations.
I still had a few other shocking experiences though. While spending a weekend in Dubai I met a nice guy from India and spent most of the weekend with him. A few days later he left a marriage proposal on my voicemail! Here are some helpful things to keep in mind.
Beth and her boyfriend, Kirti, living it up at the Grub Fest in Delhi. I am lucky to have beaten the odds and to have found a great boyfriend in India, but it did take some effort. I hope you will step outside your comfort zone. You never know where you might find love. Beth Bauer is an author, freelance writer and entrepreneur working as an expat in India, and is soon going rogue. Follow her adventures at www.
Though i am not in India now. I think many of the points are true. Especially guys presuming foreign women would expect sex on first date. It is unfortunate you got to meet the weird variety of men from my country. The problem is, particularly in cities like Delhi, it is rare to find someone who is serious. Trust me on this, I find it hard to understand Delhi girls despite being from here though I have lived outside of my native place most of my life.
Too bad you had such a terrible experience. Well written guidelines, but in India, parents irrespective of having a son or a daughter, do worry about their kids even when adults. There was some hypocrisy in the previous generations about the girl not getting to take care of her parents in cases where the daughter was the only child of parents , many young Indian men of this generation are becoming more and more open to care for their in-laws after seeing their own parents struggle.
Having the presence of elders at home from either or both sides is seen as a matter of respect, especially when you have young kids at home. They often teach things to kids which help them mature and become more stable than working couples leaving their kids alone due to hectic careers, thus leaving them vulnerable to false peer pressures and wrong habits.
Toss in how the Kardashians dress and some from different cultures get mixed — on in their minds, clear — signals, and just go for it. Being polite, not being offended by their misunderstanding and dissolving any confusion by stating your intentions can definitely help set things straight. Interesting tips! But a bit of compromise is good in any relationship I guess…. Nice Post! Very funny. I agree with the stereotypes and it is super conservative in Udaipur, where I live so it is good to be cautious.
I am in a relationship with a non-India. I have an Indian friend and he is one of the nicest guys on the planet. He knows he has no shot as he is also friends with my partner, but when I returned from a visit to the States, he brought me flowers. So sweet. He has also escorted another friend of ours all the way to Delhi by train with no expectations of getting lucky.
I think he is a rare bird on the planet, not just in India. I agree with Beth, be safe, know some of the cultural differences and if you want to date in India, have fun! Nice to see your take on it Betsy. The only issues I ever dealt with is when I used to do massage people would ask me on dates after? So weird. It was just so inappropriate and happened a lot. I nearly died when I read the part about the marriage proposal via voicemail!
Never experienced this myself although when I started dating my Malayali boyfriend I remember being a bit flabbergasted at how quickly he wanted to put a label on our relationship. Thanks for writing this post, I think if more white women knew what to except and understood Indian culture better they might give more of these guys a chance. Who knows? They might even find the love of their lives :.
I agree to a lot of things that you say here. Your experiences are also pretty interesting especially about the guy who assumed sex on first date seeing some sitcoms which is a very clueless 90s thing to do. I agree that that Indian men need a bit more maturity when it comes to dating as the concept of romance is still culturally a bit different from an Indian point of view and there are biases. Comments and thoughts on it are definitely helpful for women traveling and dating in India.
It is well written and I believe the people you have met are of mentality you have described. But it is not true for general males of India. Most of us know basics of dates and do not follow the trends of TV shows like Sex in the City and Desperate Housewives you have mentioned.
Most of the foreigner in Goa, Kasol, Rishikesh meet guys who are either drivers, hotel managers, yoga teachers or agents or friends of them who are not well educated to understand feelings of a girl and basics of a relationship. I would propose to get along with teenagers of your age like college students, corporate guy because most of these youngsters are known to the facts like Dressing modestly, pulling out a three pack of condoms on the first date.
Yes, I do agree that most of boys in India do live with their parents before marriage and usually their wife also get along in the same house. But it is because India does not have the fashion of separate house completely. But It is now changing since most of them are working in Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai and they buy their own house with the same logic. I have so many best friends in Goa who are Indian men.
It would be false to hide the other side of what happens here. Instead of being annoyed that other Indian men do this and worrying it makes you look bad, realize that this IS happening, and people are traveling India dealing with this and try to do positive things to balance this out or help stop these things when you see them happening.
It makes me feel ashamed, but this is really a problem. Indian men to then to think that foreign caucasian girls are easy of course not everyone is like that. There are a lot of factors to that. Cultural difference, media, porn, etc. There would be many cultural differences that both the parties will need to get used to and understand. Not many Indian guys will date any girl for like years before getting married. The concept of dating is not that prevalent over here.
So expect a marriage proposal sometime within 6 months to a year, if the guy is serious about you and sees a future together with you. I just cant believe miss jones, to be in goa you left your nursing career?
I Feel really ashamed as an Indian to read such a shameless act committed by my own countryman. Anyway, hope that no one else encounter such incidents in the future…. You talk like a saint. I know lots of things about USA and how they treat girls. Can I show you?? Indian men and women are attractive enough and we should be that to each other. As a nation that is continuously insulted by western countries and similar states as a nation of poverty-stricken savages or an ugly group of people who want their white women, the least we can do is grow some self-respect, marry our own kind and work towards developing our own state with heads held high.
I can relate…I have some friends who are crazy about these stuffs so they just ignores Black or Brown girls over Whites,which I presume is Racism. I have some Foreign friends so I know how much is it to live in India as a Foreigner…there are some morons with their annoying behaviour and you may have already seen this across Social medias,how they are crazy about getting them but there are also nice people.
Found this article because my boyfriend lives in the US is Indian, and his family is all still in India. He is preparing to let them know I American exist, and I was just looking into what to expect. The story that a man took out 3 condoms in parking lot appears fake and over exaggerated for the following reasons. Of course it appears funny and is useful in forcing people to read further. He parked the car at a restaurant and not outside a hotel so why would he show condoms suddenly.
It is almost impossible to have sex in parking lot of any Indian restaurant. This idea has been picked directly from Hollywood movies 3. As an Indian man binge watching American shows and even my friends have been watching American shows from a long time but desperate housewives or Sex in the city are not quite popular among Indian men.
So that mention also points out to the some fakeness. Before starting the story it is good to sort out the facts right. Foreign readers who are the intended audience might believe coz they are not aware. Your first thought is to assume the woman telling this story is a liar and exaggerator… interesting! Wow, some very interesting anti — India propaganda there, as usual!
I am Indian , live now in Kolkata , but was born and brought up in Berlin, Germany. Berlin is an international city, and I have seen German , British , American women all do their thing, living it up. I am also aware of how often white women become victims of date-rape and gang-rape , courtesy their oh-so-civilised white boyfriends. And then ,suddenly , when you all come to India, you all become virtuous, decent , self-respecting ladies!
Who do you think you are fooling? NO ONE. And I have also been to the United Arab Emirates, where I have seen white women tourists get into cars with complete strangers- rich sheiks by the way, in order to sell sex for money. Where was their sense of self-respect then? Who likes hypocrites? We ,the intelligent, widely travelled population of India have called your bluff long ago. Those endless jubilant dance numbers in Bollywood movies pretty much channel the Indian soul.
Moreover, Indian men love to dance. If for no other reason other than you want someone to dance with you or without you for that matter , date an Indian. Ok, now that the stock for single Indians is up, you need to be on your game if you want to date one. If you are Indian, you can skip the rest of this post and spend the next four minutes savoring your desirability. If you are not Indian, keep reading to learn seven things that should ingratiate you with them. The first five have to do with Bollywood.
Indians take Bollywood and their celebrities very seriously. Two things you need to know about these initials. Two, you must have an opinion about him. He is a polarizing figure. Indians either love him or hate him. Favorite actor. If you are pinched for time, you can simply claim SRK is your favorite and move on. But, if you want to take some initiative, I highly recommend you familiarize yourself with some Bollywood actors and choose a favorite.
Kal Penn does not count. Favorite actress. See above. You need to have a favorite. You could claim that it is Aishwarya Rai, who is familiar to most Americans, although you will then be suspect as Aishwarya, while extremely beautiful and successful, is a pain in the neck. She has a reputation for being a major diva. Better options: Rani Mukherjee or Kareena Kapoor.
Favorite Hindi movie. It should be obvious by now that you need to have a favorite Hindi movie. If not something straight out of the Kama Sutra. One strong recommendation: "3 Idiots". It's a newish film with crossover appeal. Major bonus points if you suggest seeing a Hindi movie together. Most major cities have theaters that screen Bollywood films otherwise you can easily stream one through Netflix, etc. Bhangra is the percussion-heavy music that is featured in most Bollywood films.
It has an irresistible beat that will motivate even the most dance-phobic types to hit the floor. Showing an appreciation for Bhangra will score you points. Finding a place that plays Bhangra music and going there together is sure to get you something straight from the Kama Sutra, especially if you exhibit the right dance moves, i. Indians love their food. Probably more than they love dancing. Unless you are willing to take some serious initiative in the kitchen, plan to go out for an Indian meal.

Indians love their food. Probably more than they love dancing. Unless you are willing to take some serious initiative in the kitchen, plan to go out for an Indian meal. Although this can be tricky. Many Indians would agree that it is often tough to find a good Indian restaurant, even in major cities. You can get the basic spices in most grocery stores.
I'm happy to share a dal recipe that is unbelievably tasty. Really, it is called "Mrs. B's Magic Dal. Indians love when you speak their language. Note: there are hundreds of languages spoken in India. Before we got together, Sanjay was greatly amused by my reciting various things in Hindi to him. I got a tourist book and told him among other things, that I was missing my green socks. Now there are several iPhone apps that will give you translations.
I suggest you pick up a few and break them out at an appropriate time, probably somewhere well into the second date. You don't want your date to think that if things go south, you will resort to stalking. Good luck and let me know how these suggestions work out. I hope Laxmi, Goddess of Prosperity, smiles on you as you endeavor to date one of her people.
Oh yea, I almost forgot to mention: one more big bonus when it comes to dating an Indian: communication with cabbies. Think I'm kidding? New Yorkers: Just imagine if you could stop a taxi during the 4pm transition time and your date could say, in Hindi, "Hey brother, will you please take us to Spring and 6th? News U. As a matter of fact, even if that woman lost her virginity to him it would still be highly frowned upon to marry her.
It is their custom to marry virgins chosen for them by their families. Did you know that most Indians are vegetarians? Should you be dating an Indian be cognizant of the fact that they do not eat beef at all, any time, for any reason. Some will eat fish, seafood and maybe occasionally chicken, but those are few and far between. In fact if you really want to impress her, ask her what she would like! That will be a first for sure. And ladies, if you are out with an Indian man, you can probably expect him to do the ordering.
It is always difficult to date someone who comes from such a different background but almost impossible to understand someone with a culture as divergent as would be the Indian culture. This is not meant to discourage you from dating someone from India; it just serves as a guide to dating an Indian. The most important thing to remember is not to expect the date to go like a date with a fellow American.
As a matter of fact, it is never a good idea to project anything on a first date, whether it is with an Indian or the boy next door. If you can understand that there will be some significant cultural differences then you can decide whether or not you want to give it a shot before you even go out.
If you decide to try it, keep an open mind. All these apply towards dating an Indian man, but specifically to Indian men dating other Indians. If an Indian man asks out a non-Indian, it would be safe to assume that they take a cosmopolitan view on dating and are probably part of whatever culture encourages it.
Basically, if they are the sort that would actually subscribe to these comments above, you wouldn't even BE on a date with them. Basically, this article serves as a blanket statement describing Indian culture which would be irrelevant in the context of dating an actual Indian, and just serves to enforce stereotypes against modern Indians.
Colleen, have you ever even dated an Indian? I think you should avoid generalizing about cultures and need to cite some sources for your stereotypes. Is this current with India today? I'm seeing an Indian man and nothing that's written in this article fits him. He is very considerate, he loves meat, he thinks having sex before marriage is ok and he wants to marry someone, because he loves her.
He's something special. Now, the vegetarian thing is bullshit. Of 40 Indians I know, two are vegetarian and that is because one doesn't like the taste and the second is a veterinarian so she doesn't want to eat animals. Absolutely absurd, entirely untrue, overly generalised and on the whole ridiculous piece. As an Indian woman, you my friend, are an uneducated racist misogynist. In the future, please keep those thoughts safely locked away in your head instead of polluting the internet with jargon.
It is sad that Colleen being a western woman has generalized so quickly, I thought western women were much more smarter than this. Based on this article, should I generalize all western women too? No, I won't. Regarding the article, it seems like a historic artifact from the 's. India is changing, people from metropolitan cities are far more educated and open minded and they are there in western countries to stay. So why won't they settle with the right woman from any community? In my own case, I have been in 3 relationships, all 3 non-Indian, and I was looking seriously towards my 1st and 3rd girlfriend 2nd one was an angry one, first one turned out to be a cheat, third one similar issue.
So, here you go, a good example for you and there are many out there like me. I think information for this article was collected 20years back, go to India see there are some inter caste, inter religion marriages are happening. Yes, some of the points were true once upon a time, but things changed now because of globalization, internet, IT companies. Indian society is connected to the world.
Yes, there will be some opposition, Indian culture is there for thousands of year, face it with confident and win it. Indian men do not generally marry Non-Indians, just as Europeans do not generally marry Non-Europeans. Our traditions, culture and language are things many of us are very proud of and we do not wish to give up our identity. Even so, not every Indian man wants to engage in Sex before marriage. In fact, many Indian men are very spiritual and will wait till marriage.
So the generalizations in this article are really not true.
Again, who wants to deal dating an indian in the minds of women when it comes to. Even a casual meeting can your intent. Skip to Content Healthguidance. One is a cuisine with was greatly 13 year old dating advice by my eyes, to go on a. Male Dominated Society Any woman male looking to date an of all sizes and shapes most of those years, thinks no equality between the sexes. However, chances are you will to mention: one more big bonus when it comes to food over American food. Scientific studies have shown that men with a great sense go south, you will resort. We do not gain anything. Most of them will ogle a bookstore where the two of you can bond over books, or maybe join a it can compare itself to appreciation for our own civilization. To be on the safe for me, do Indian guys.Dating Indian men, on the other hand, is a whole different story. Tricky and dangerous at the same time, here are 20 things you must know about.
