Single's Guide: 9 Truly Hilarious Ways To Avoid Matchmakers At A Wedding

Indian weddings are usually a combination of fun ceremonies, delicious cuisine, and not to miss, a few pesky relatives. Yes, apart from the happy family members and friends, there always are a few annoying relatives (read: auntyjis) at the Indian weddings, who have a couple of standard statements for the youngsters. So, if you have crossed 25 and are still single, then these are a few things you might be bombarded with at the next wedding you attend- “beta kahan kaam karte ho?”, “ab agla number tera hai”, etc!

Well, we know all these statements are just too irritating, and hence, we bring you a list of fantastic excuses that will help you dodge them all and also take a bit of revenge.

WARNING: Some of these tips might lead to appointments with a psychiatrist or a 'religious guru'. And, if your parents come to know about any of these, then you might even be kept away from all the family celebrations in future.

#1. Simply say that you do not believe in the holy matrimony. This is sure to give the auntyjis a shock, and they might even suggest your parents to take you to a relationship counsellor, psychiatrist or even a 'religious guru'.

#2. The moment you see someone coming close to you and you get a hint that they might say something you really do not want to hear, start filling your mouth with laddoos. And, as soon as they start talking on this topic, speak with your laddoo-stuffed mouth and start spraying it on their face.

#3. This is really effective one. If you are a guy, simply say, “Aunty mujhe ladkiyan achchi nahi lagti.” And, girls can just say the opposite to save themselves. This is definitely going to keep all the auntyjis away from you during the entire wedding celebrations.

#4. And, if you do not like the idea of spreading the rumour of you not being straight, then do it with your prospective life partner whom your relative has shortlisted. Here is how it works:

Aunty: “Beta dekha Mrs. Verma ke bete/beti ko, teri usse baat chalwaoon?”
You: “Aunty usko ladke/ladkiyan pasand hain. I think he/she is not straight!”
