Pyar Ke Side Effects

Side Effects of Love : Female Version -

Overtime - If you are in a 9-5 job, and your boyfriend goes to office from 11am-11pm, you have to do Overtime. Meaning, you sleep late, get up early.. make food after you get home (even if you have had the toughest day in your life, first cook his food).

Khaana Pakana - as much as he might be OK with you not knowing how to cook, he expects you will learn and make him some good food, if not as good as his moms (never will be), atleast something edible.

Food changes everything - His mood, his feelings for you, his opinion of you. Believe me, EVERYTHING.

His friends/ your friends – become ‘Our Friends’

‘Commitment’ – the word that scares him the most in the English dictionary.

The 2-faced man – as much as he likes you to be ‘western’ in your clothing, he would Really prefer the traditional girl in you.

The Kid - Men will always be boys. They don’t grow up..EVER.

Appreciate his brilliance from time to time - Men like to be appreciated for their ideas/ methods / conversations / advice.. Many of the brilliant conversations come after a few pegs are down.. (they may be repetitive, but, don’t notice).. So, give it to him .

Tell him who you find Hot / $exy. He doesn’t believe in the line, " Tu hi to mera sansar hai.. Aisa mera pyaar hai". He wants to know who his competition is!! (Even though there may be none).

Momma’s boy – At the end, Momma knows everything & you don’t know anything.

‘The Image” – ‘I don’t fall for ANY girl.. Girls fall for me” Poor dude, doesn’t know when reality hits him, “Chappad phaad ke deta hai”.

Most common gene - “I am emotionally stable & mature” - Yeah, and I am the princess of Narnia.

Decision Maker – he makes ALL the decisions in the house.. He decides which bank account the money comes out of – urs or mine?

Sports - “Even if the streets are filled with riots, and there is an Arsenal – Chelsea match, the match is more important.. Don’t dishturb!” Even if they don’t understand the sport, they have to watch it & make comments.

Friends - Constant comparison as to whether they are ‘Joey’ or ‘Chandler’ or ‘Ross’, and couldn’t care less about which of them you are..

The Acid test - The best Friend.

Weekend – “Life is a weekend” – it seems that they live from Sunday to Saturday, and thus you work Overtime (refer to point no. 1) during the week.. and you don’t even get any extra credit for it.

Gossip Mongrels – He wants all the gossip on your friends, but, wont accept that its gossip, coz, then, its called ‘An update’.

$moking – Time pass & a good reason to check out the women at office..

Women Effect - The ex-s, the present, mom, sister, sister-in-law, cousin sister, all the women in his life- His biggest balancing act.

Work-life balance - He is always the busy one at work.. If by any chance you are busy one day, god help you.

Flirting – He thinks it’s an art, and he knows it! Worst of all, he thinks that’s how he got you.

Fights & Makeup – Goes by the assumption that a kiss or a rose is all that you need to patch up after a fight.. I say, “Be a man”, “Mard Ban”; Lets talk.

TV Remote – What is that?

Statements you hear often from your boyfriend -
  • “I have to take care of the family” – I am not family.
  • “Main hoon na” – That’s the problem.
  • “Who is she talking to for SO long?” – Dude, its only been 10 minutes.
  • “Your phone is constantly engaged.. Who are you talking to?” (no matter what the reply, its not good enough)
  • “Make tea na… Get me biscuits… Maggiiiiiii…” – Get a cook.
  • “What are we doing for dinner tonight?” - Like I have a say in the matter.
  • “Uff.. How much Shopping will you do?” – even when the last time you went Shopping was 3 months back.

To the men reading this post - We all know the reality of the situation, so, lets not be justfying anything said here.

To the women reading this post - Have I left out any important points?

Disclaimer – this is a collection of thoughts from women with boyfriends & not about anybody in particular. Any coincidence with my friends’ behaviors with their girlfriends is purely coincidental.


  1. gud!!simply fabulous.actually one point is missing that boys always say to their girlfriends that"tere sae toh achi voh meri friend he hai"and "tu mujhe kabhi samaj nahe sakti"

  2. Its great .I think every man will agree with all this because they are all the same.

  3. what u wrote is realy 100% true.I would like to add one more point that even they are wrong in making some decision they never ever can accept it.It really hurts their EGO.

  4. hi nisha....i agree wit u...bt dnt u think v guys atleast speak out abt our ex's...

  5. Its good ..But U always think that the mistake is with guys... Y dont u accpet that even the mistake lies with girls even..

  6. blah !
    blah !
    blah !
    i m not agree with u whatever is given above.
    first thing gals always want that boy shoula always say that they are looking beautiful.
    they are very slim and charming doesn't matter what the reality is.
    when we(boys) talk to our any female friend, they hardly beleive that we are not interested in her and we are just friends.
    gals always want that boys should praise them for each and everything when they are having nothing.
    it is very easy for a gal to ditch a boy nd forget him very easily.
    Gals always ready for gossip not boys, gals just want to speak and discuss that waht she had said, what she was wearing, i purchased this, blah blah blah !!!!!!
    and there are other so many things also
    but i have not such time bcz when i will start writting about gals my whole life will come to an end, but the story about gals will not complete...
    at the end i will conclude that life is better without gal, friends can do better then her.
    gals are just selfish,mean and "MATLAB KE YAAR"

  7. All that u said falls pleasing to every girls ears and harsh to men.Both sides face some sideeffects but forget that at the end of the day they r nothing but 2 sides of the same coin and have to attract the opposites and live along.So just keep on adding spice like this.

  8. b u l l s h i t

    - if that's how bad YOUR boyfriend is, why don't you just kick him out of your life? Believe me there are a lot better ones out there!
