'My friends call me behenji'

Published: 27 October, 2013 23:34 IST | Dear Diana |

Dear Diana, My pals tell me that I have to be a go-getter to attract boyfriends. They say that my adherence to traditional Indian wear is acting as a deterrent against prospective boyfriends.

But the truth is I’m far more comfortable in traditional wear than in western clothes. Besides, I’m in no hurry to initiate my love life since I’m 21 and currently looking for a job.

Dear Shagufta,
You need to tell your pals that a guy will fall for you, and not for your clothes. Indian wear can also be trendy. Just because you wear traditional stuff does not mean that you are a behenji. What matters most is your outlook to life. A change in dressing style is of no use if your mindset has not changed. You are only 21 and I am sure there is someone there for you. So for now chill and dress what suits you and, more importantly, you are comfortable in.

Diana will solve it!
