Initially I was so crazy about finding a person who loved to do what I love to do. It will work out in most cases. The guy I am seeing, likes me for the person I am. He thinks I’m adventurous.
“I think the sweetest moments are when you do these nonsensical and nobrainer things together. Like when you go shopping or the kind of simple choices which you make together it really helps in bonding. We love to cook together and bake together. Every once in a while when I come back from Bangalore to Chennai, I usually reach there at 5am, he would wake up and come all the way to see me and get me breakfast. That’s really sweet of him.”
Love means freedom to me. The freedom to be myself. So far I have dated younger people but I have also dated older people. But prefer older people. Because i think older people are more interesting. At least in India the younger guys have a lots of growing up to do. There is a friend of mine in Germany, he’s an artist. So for my birthday he drew a whole of cartoon strip of how we met, how we became friends and the thing we did together. He framed it to me and sent it to me. That’s one of the most thoughtful thing somebody has done for me.
“I just got into college in London. Getting accepted there was one of my better moments. It was also one of the reasons for not continuing my relationship as long distance ruins things. Also we hadn’t reached that stage where we could completely trust each other.I want to be independent. That’s on top of my priority list.”
“Today dating is definitely important before marriage. Before getting into a relationship you need to trust the other person and believe in yourself. Trust is important. Being independent is also important these days. And I’d like my daughter to be independent.”
“I have been married for 25 years and to me love is affection and to care. I have had an arranged marriage and I do feel dating is an important factor as it’s important to know what you’re getting into and who you are going with. I guess I was lucky as even my courtship period was a very short one.”
