In an age of ghosting, cheating, blocking and ignoring, finding love is difficult but The Desi Guide to Dating is here to help you out! This book is your one-stop solution to all your dating needs.

How to ask her out, what to wear on your date, how to protect your heart, how to kiss the girl, how to fend off creeps and stalkers, and much more. Happy dating, folks! Your time has finally come.


Dating is sometimes harder than it should be. Even after countless dinners and drinks with a new date every time, people still don’t find their ideal match and end up being single. But when dating is done right, it can be amazing, and could be a beginning of a great relationship. So you can consider this book as your dating playbook, with all the information you need to survive the first date and to make sure there’s a second one.

It’s a self-help book, and has something for everyone. Whether you’re a teenager, who has no idea what dating actually is or an adult, who ruin every date and end up watching Netflix, (no chill) every night, this book has something for you.

The book is divided into 10 lessons, each one aimed at making one’s relationship healthier by breaking the myths of relationships, love and dating. It is witty and very much relatable to our generation. Ira and Sachin has answered most of the questions related to dating, which comes into our minds. They have given two answers to each question, one from a boy’s point of view and another from girl’s. Every part of a relationship and its importance is explained in the book in a simple, easy breezy language.

I loved the cover of book , which is designed by saurav Das. He did an amazing job of making it attractive. The blurb seems intriguing, too.

Although, the focus of the book is on dating, but as we all know, breakups are a major part of dating these days, and there are many few who know how to deal with a breakup. So, at the end of the book there are certain tips to help you deal with a breakup.

I would surely recommend this book to people who are having a hard time finding their ideal mate and to parents as well, so that they know there is nothing wrong with dating and so that they understand this generation well.
