15 reasons why you shouldn’t date a Gujju boy.

Statutory Warning: Everything said in this post is all in good humor. I am a Gujarati girl myself.

Round rotis

So my list making continues to an extent where I’ve started bitching about my own people. Yes, all of you are my own people cause I’m a human and you are humans and all that but Gujaratis are MY PEOPLE.

I’ve grown up mostly around Gujju boys so didn’t really realize how funny they could be until I spent time with a lot of non-Gujjus.
So here’s a list of why one shouldn’t date a Gujju boy.


15. In most probability the Gujju boy will be a vegetarian. Even if he pretends to eat/lick the non-veg food that you offer, he’ll not tell his parents about it and his excuse will be that he’s just doing that to ‘fit in’. (I’m a vegetarian.)
14. Gujju boy will not be very educated but he’ll obviously be great with money. Even if he sucks at math he’ll count your notes like a pro. You don’t want to date a ‘Note Counting Machine’.
13. He has very few options in mind post college. He would either want to join the diamond market, start dealing in shares, open a small stationery/ general store shop or get into some chill job in the film industry. Less work, more money, you see?
12. He comes with baggage. Literally. His paunch.
11. He has a bald patch. If he doesn’t have it already, he will eventually get it.
10. He’ll expect you to cook. ‘Darling, please make me hot rotis with this vegetable?’ Sigh. Go ask your mom to pamper you, please?
9. His shirt has all sorts of gross patterns stitched on them. Flowers and ‘mehendi designs’ are all nicely embroidered on his wacky loud shirts. If they’re plain do expect them to be of some hideous shade.
8. He cannot dance at a party. You’ll spot him either standing at one corner having Coca Cola or doing Dandiya right in the center of the club. You’ll also periodically see him do his classy neck movements when he shakes a leg.
7. Food is his ultimate priority. He cannot travel anywhere without carrying a packet of something cooked at home. ‘Thepla’ and pickle will be his priority though.
6. Some men like it when you can sing/ dance, some like it when you go all dirty on him. He’ll LOVE you if you can cook him nice ‘undhiyu’. (It’s a mix vegetable dish, in case y’all are wondering.)
5. He cannot talk in proper English. He just cannot. Either his language sucks or the way he writes/types. There’ll rarely be a Gujju boy who’ll sweep you off your feet with his words.
4. He can’t come up with smart comebacks. The internet is ruling the minds but the Gujju won’t come out of his calculator. He won’t know how Twitter functions, he won’t get the reason why one shouldn’t like their own status/ picture or even how you should respond to a certain joke.
Friend: Knock knock!
Gujju Boy: What? You’re stupid or what?
3. He’s a die-hard cricket follower. So much that it gets annoying. But of course, if he won’t watch, how will he bet on the teams with his friends?
2. He uses Sampoo and not shampoo. He won’t even know what a conditioner would be good for. Though he obviously will have it in his bathroom.
1. If he gets into a bar fight, no one will take him seriously once he decides to abuse. When you hear stuff like ‘aye vaydo!’, ‘vaaghri’ or ‘chaaplo’, you won’t go all, ‘What the hell did you just say?’, you’ll just go, ‘Hahahahahahaha! Acha bhai sorry, okay?’

  1. I totally agree with the points written in the article i live in USA and here Gujjus are the most hated people( gujjus call people as peoples :P ) , i mean they are so illiterate we make fun of gujjus and they don’t get it at all all they care is wearing stupid gold rings and chains

  2. So whoever you are….
    Ms. Shruti Thakkar…
    I think you never have been in gujarat or by any chance if you have been, then it will be certainly before India’s independence.

  3. lol paunch seriously ??
    Either you have’nt met any smart gujju or just making up your mind with the false thinking.. totally disagree with your propositions..

  4. Guys – please learn to take a joke… I mean, if gujjus weren’t at all educated, our community wouldn’t really be famous globally, now would it? That being said, there are those of us who could use a little polishing in a few areas.

  5. Hi shruti nice attempt but it’s not funny as its not based on true facts. You have genetalised men of a community while forgetting that every individual is different and choice of women also differs while it comes to men. For example i like men who are vegetarian and don’t find anything wrong in it. The Gujarati guys i have seen in my life are like other guys only. They are smart, fit well dressed and can talk on topics other than money. And i don’t think its bad if you can’t speak English. Can you speak Spanish or German? English is not our native language so it’s not necessary for a person to be well versed in it. Only one advice for you don’t judge people by notion, try to know them and find positive points about them. And if you are truly interested in writing humour observe people and situation around you rather than just following some old age notions. This will help in creating better article.

  6. A bitch doesn’t need to look like a bitch to be a bitch. Please don’t insult Gujaratis.
    I am a proud Gujarati and all Gujaratis are lions even though we may not look like a lion.

  7. My man is gujarati and he’s absolutely not like what this blog states.is he ommited or what?
    Get your factors polished girl..you’re misleading people.

  8. I think your article is offensive, rude and completely unnecessary. You should just delete the whole thing and save yourself upsetting so many people. It is not even funny. There is no wit. Vegetarianism is growing in the world at an epic scale and is in tune with nature and saving the environment. Cricket is a beautiful sport loved by many non-Indians as well. Of all the Gujarati men I know many are very caring , loving and exemplary family men who provide for their families and are a great role model to their children and very peaceful. Come to London and you will meet Gujarati men who will melt your heart. The art of blogging and wit is that you do not upset and hurt people and cast a shadow over so many.

  9. Well, no wonder you bitch about your own people. You got lucky to date only those Gujjus whom you deserved. The rest of them(way above what you deserve) are just lucky that didnt happen to be on a date with you. God save the holy souls whom you had a chance to date with!

  10. Shruti….
    Lagta hai aap ko Gujaratiyo se koi problem hai.
    Mai toh ek seedhi saadhi ladki hu, lekin aap ko ek baat bataon toh :
    “Ben ,tame gandi thaye gaye ”

    This is very offensive, and as a human being, i think i should advice you to be sensitive, I am from a Gujarati household, and your categorization of Gujarati boys is wrong, they are warm hearted and diverse in nature.
    Please do not do this again.

  11. Just came across this blog…. and writing my comments! There is something more beyond marriages, dating, and financial corruption…. which is REGIONALISM! Gujarati, Jains, Marwaris …… core to corrupt, cheat, fraud, selfish, money looters, regional CULT! From Harshad Mehta, Ketan Parekh, Rasiklal Dhariwal, to a local kiranamawalla, jewellers all are cheat. Forget doing philanthropy, they even eat their employee salaries! Anybody who earns money, these people have severe problem! These people are known to outcry. Over the period of several years/decades, these goons have migrated/influxed in Maharashatra in large numbers (may be in millions) that too absolutely for FREE (same like UP, Biharis, South Indians)! They are systematically bringing people from their native places, home states (Gujarat, Rajasthan) and make them settle in Maharashtra. They have started forming Gujarati lobbies in almost every part of our state! Gujarati schools, Gujarati dukans, Gujarat societies, Gujarati sign boards, Gujarati language on Western railway stations, Gujarat samachar, Gujarati mid-day have sprung up in our state….. slowly slowly building the community strength…..signs of a completely degraded community…! And one question to all Gujaratis, where are migrants, real estate, builder lobbies in your home state (Gujarat)????

  12. Dis was cute! Made me fall in love with my gujju guy even more! Cz all these stupid things of him has made me fall heads over heels for him! And btw he has an awesome dressing sense and never gets below those classy brands! :D

  13. That is very bad shruti! Shame on you. you can’t label people on something they do. That is racist ans judgemental. But even if taken as humor its offensive. Even though I’m not gujju it still is pretty offensive. So i suggest you shut your tramp and see what you write

  14. Girlsss plz avoid dating gujju boys specially if you are of different caste..
    Otherwise u will end up with tears..Their families are very orthodox and backward thinking as compare to others..if you are planning to marry them den its ur day dream..
    but I agree gujju boys are very sweet and dedicated like mine..;)

  15. All the points I agree with my new found gujju love… Esp “SHH” part, but you know what its kind of refreshing how he calls me, “tu”. It inversely makes me fall in love with him head over heels….
    But yes they are little too harsh for my baby is exceptionally well dressed all the time.:)

  16. I have a gujju friend who’s my best friend. And he is an amazing dancer knows to dance almost all styles of dance, his english is perfect..he’s the topper in english actually, is studying engineering,knows how to send flirty messages, like seriously…sometimes i’m like “dude are you for real?” And he hasn’t abused till now, but i think he knows pretty daring swear words.
    Personally i think dating a gujju boy would be awesome, *giggles* dating my gujju best friend actually! :D

  17. Found the post a tad bit sterotypical. It was funny in someways but had hint of hate and bitterness towards ‘gujju boys’. Seemed too biased and based on your little personal experience. It was a good attemp to be informal post but turned out to be a disrespectful one.
    ~A disappointed gujju

  18. this post is written by a girl who has never experienced a real Kathiyawadi boy who wud sweep her of her girl wid his excellent sense of humour.

    n frankly speaking compare urself wid a punjabi girl, those girls r too fashionable and bold compared to desi gujarati Ben like u.

  19. Clickbaiting, self-hating belle who’s never crossed the hallowed lands of Surat? :p I half didn’t want to honor this turgid crap with a response but hey you’ve already got my website hit – might as well get one for your base attempt at humor.

    P.S – You got married to one of These at 21 against your wishes eh Thakkar?

  20. Well with what you said I am sure you must be living in a remote area somewhere and I would advice you to come to big cities in order to meet the right guys and if you already are in big city it would be best to switch to some porsche location… if you dont look good or don’t have good attitude, you might have few more 10-15 reasons to add in here :)

  21. Which world are you living in ? Most of the points are fucked up!! No wait….all of them are fucked up !!! Either you are not a gujarati or you haven’t actually met a gujju boy !!! You better get the fuck out of your house and see the world !!!

  22. Man fuck you… Your source of info is really limited. the GUJJU boys you grew up with is not enough evidence to make such a judgement about Gujarati boys. I mean even I am a Gujarati boy and i barely fit in to this crappy, judgmental description of yours about gujju guys. Common even you’re a Gujarati according to this article of yours. Out of all you should know better.

  23. A good humor does not include labeling and stereotyping of a particular community. PATHETIC read of the day! Terribly Sexist too
    I hope your parents find an amazing Gujarati guy for you.
    P.S This is not a curse

    You got to change your outlook big time and please get your ” good humor” definitions right

  24. C mon guys.. Chillax.. There is no reason to get offended for things like these… Be a sport… U know how gujjus are.. If it does match with the author’s view then accept her viewpoint else take it as a good sense of humour

  25. C mon guys.. Chillax.. There is no reason to get offended for things like these… Be a sport… U know how gujjus are.. If it does match with the author’s view then accept her viewpoint else take it as a good sense of humour

  26. First of all…. u might have these all experiences mam with 1 or 2 persons… so being gujju don’t just spoil our name for the sake of making ur article popular…dear mam also glad to tell u that gujjus r the most famous community in the world…. And just meet me once I will show u how gujjus can do… will show u especially point 5 nd 8.. please check my English at our meeting and also check if my glass is filled with coke or whisky… mind it…

  27. Ohhhhh god!! Lol!! Look at the way you’ve written stuff! Kindly join grammar classes first!
    Next, wrote all that in good humor?? I would write a book on you had I got a chance to meet you once and all that in good humor!!

    Yes they are good at money, yes then carry home cooked food, yes they love cricket! So what?? I couldn’t laugh reading any of the points you’ve written (considering you wrote it in gold humor). I could go on and on criticising every point you’ve written.

    And yes, who wears embroidered shirts now?? Which planet are you living in? And even if they do, it doesn’t make them a bad person or should I assume you are advising people to like a man by the clothes he wears?

    I pity your thoughts!

    Lol lol lol!
