I am not looking for a romantic relationship. It is not a playboy thing. She shared a home cooked meal in her new flat, with her adorable adopted dogs in tow. She invited me after seeing my new year resolution on Facebook and it was a great way to start the year for me. I just finished my th date, which also ended up being covered by a popular English news channel.
What if you fell for a date? Would you reconsider this whole business? The idea of these meals or dates are not romantic, so regardless of whether I fall for someone or not I will continue the journey. I want to see where this goes. How would you define these dates?
This is not a PR exercise in trying to bloat up my ego. This is just so much fun; meeting beautiful women from all walks of life, varied age groups, and growing through new experiences. The food aspect of it is mindblowing too.

It is not only a welfare initiative. I like women and like meeting them. I play football everyday with men, work with male assistants, and honestly being a man, it is not really that difficult to access or understand my gender.
With all the violence against women in recent times, relationships becoming more difficult to hold on to, misconceptions about dating and misunderstanding of Indian men itself, I thought this would be a lot more relevant and exciting. They appear to be regular phone pictures. It will also be a lot more intrusive in the conversation. I want people to know that all these ladies, food and locations were actually beautiful. So, to keep it more honest and less intrusive, I do simple point and shoot shots with phone cameras.
How did your last date go? We have largely moved away from the arranged marriage culture but seem to be unsure of what dating is. We are struggling to connect.
And the environment has not been conducive or safe for getting to know people face-to-face. The opposite gender does not need to be met with an agenda.
So this is my journey to see if I can crack the code. For myself first and, in the process of sharing the experience on social media, maybe people will move away from having a relationship with their phones and learn to reconnect with friends, family, strangers, etc. You let the women decide the venue, activity, menu, etc.

If you were to take someone out, how would you spend the day? I would ideally love a long drive to a water body with good music. A long uncluttered drive always connects you because there is no one else around and it is very relaxing.
It normally ends up being awkward if you are facing each other in a restaurant and have nothing to say. Then I would love to eat by a sea, river, stream or a cliff overlooking the ocean. And the drive back is always a great time to recap or connect before you drop her back.
