Maxim debutante Sonalika Sahay shares some of her dating tips in our Raw issue.
You’ve got the day off. What do you do?
I like to stay physically fit, so I would either swim, go for long runs or just curl up at home with a book.
What’s your favourite travel destination?
Describe your ideal date.
Two words—Brad Pitt.
What’s your favourite cocktail?
It’s something I’ve discovered on my own. Vodka with guava juice, a dash of lemon juice and a hint of salt. Haven’t named it yet, though.
We’ll brainstorm together... Okay, your advice to men—how to impress a woman on a first date?
I guess being honest and confident helps.
A sexy man is?
Someone who can hold a healthy conversation without bragging about himself.
How can a man catch your attention?
By not being pushy and aggressive. I like men who are comfortable in their skin and aren’t trying too hard.
Dating apps—crazy or creepy?
Why not? If technology helps bring like- minded people together, I really don’t see any harm.
What, according to you, defines body confidence?
For me, body confidence comprises of your body language and your dressing sense.
How do you let a man know you’re interested?
By giving him attention and making direct conversation, even in a group.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Doritos. I can literally live on them!
Instagram loves your...
My super long legs.
Before we let you go, describe your idea of a perfect world.
Honestly, my ideal world is the present world I’m living in. But I’d like it to be a lot more green and safe for women in the years to come.
