My girlfriend stinks of sweat

Published: Oct 25, 2012, 06:23 IST | Dear Diana |

Dear Diana, I am 24 and going steady with this girl who is a year younger to me. She is of a sweet nature and I am very fond of her.

But there is a problem I am unable to tell her. Her perspiration smells very bad some times. It gets very uncomfortable around her, especially when I hold her in my arms. She is very sensitive in nature so I do not know how to tell her.

Dear Waris,
Gift her a pack of deos, body sprays and perfumes. Tell her to apply them whenever she meets you. I am sure she will do it to please you. Tell her to carry a deo or body spray in her handbag too — gift her the miniature versions. You never know when you would surprise her, so tell her to keep them handy. Once she starts smelling of the scents and body sprays you have given her, tell her how better you feel now. Talk about the humid weather and the sweat. Tell her your secret of how you remain smelling fresh all day. I am sure she will understand and get the hint. If not tell her about it. If she loves you, she won’t be offended.
