24-year-old Shiva Badheka says, “What I don’t like in certain girls is that some of them crave for attention, some of them are too childish, too flirty. If they can be flirty, then I doubt I’ll be able to trust them later on.”

Video compositor Sujeet Kumar said, “I don’t want a girl who’s too brand conscious. I see a shirt, I like it, I buy it! She shouldn’t be any different; else it’ll cost me (smirks). I don’t mind my girl having an independent life/career, I won’t step in the way of that, because that will make her less dependent on me. I prefer girls who are like that.”

Senior Video Editing Artist Jai Gupta said, “She should be ambitious, yes, but not past the point where she ignores family. She shouldn’t be overly possessive about me as well. I’ll give her space and she should understand that I need mine too. She shouldn’t be too different than me. I think similar personalities attract and stay together longer.”
Arnav Jagdale was of the opinion that social media has become so popular nowadays that it can overshadow responsibility. “I don’t want a partner who is overly obsessed with her social life. Facebook shouldn’t come before family. One more thing I wouldn’t want is a girl who is short tempered – I know I am; there needs to be someone who is a calming influence, else all hell will break loose!”
25-year-old Shashwat Purav said, “She shouldn’t be a girl who feels uncomfortable around my family and friends. I know I’ll mix around well with hers, because that’s how I am. She shouldn’t be just my wife, but my friend too! And yes, she shouldn’t shun cultural values for a modern lifestyle.”
Everybody had an opinion about what they wanted in the girl of their dreams, but most of them found it hard to point out what they wouldn’t want in their to-be-wife!
