I think we can all agree that Indian TV is quite spectacular – and its shows are filled with all kinds of drama, plot twists, and great acting. Yet there are things that Indian TV depicts in weird, sometimes even offensive way. When it comes to relationships on some of these shows, we see lots of inadequate behavior that teaches people all the wrong things about how to build a relationship or show a woman that you like her. Here are 8 toxic relationship behaviors Indian TV is teaching us that we should never follow.
Women need to be chased
In real life you meet a person and both of you understand quite quickly whether you want to communicate more and go on a date or not. You either click with him/her or not! It’s totally different on TV, though. Indian shows make a whole deal about a guy and a girl meeting and usually, they hate each other’s guts (or she hates him) when they finally get to see each other. It’s a long process from there of him winning her over via a course of numerous episodes. This just doesn’t happen IRL!
Stalking is absolutely okay
If you like a girl or a guy, what would you do? Ask them out, try to start a conversation, or follow them around watching their every step like a stalker? Well, I doubt it’s the latest because normal people just aren’t wired to do things like that. Yet this is exactly what you’d see in a regular Indian TV drama! This is not how you approach a woman you like!
Women don’t have boundaries
In a TV show a girl simply can’t have some time for herself, especially if a guy has been a jerk and didn’t even apologize for his behavior. Oh no, he’ll follow her around, in office or around the house if they’re a couple already, corner her, look deep in the eyes, and wait for everything to magically become okay again. Nope, guys need to say they’re sorry or at least communicate with a woman about why she’s upset. That is if she wants to talk about at all. Women need space!
There’s always some female rivalry
Love triangles probably happen in real life too, but they are incredibly rare. Indian TV shows paint a different picture: when there’s a handsome guy and he gets together with a girl he likes, there will always be some other woman trying to get his attention. She’ll do anything to break up the couple and this, well, becomes the whole premise of the series! In real life you can just build a relationship with a man on love and trust without fearing that some other woman will break you up.
