Day 40 of 100 Indian Tinder Tales
Inspiration: Michelangelo’s The Creation Of Adam
A very heart warming tale by Am from Bangalore
“There’s an age old rumour that gay boys in Bangalore are the most intellectual and well-behaved you might ever find in India. [Did I also mention good looking? Well, that too.]
Well, I met quite a few boys in town. Some were extremely boring, some used too much of Photoshop in their Tinder pictures, another set were too pompous and another group just starting off the conversation with “Sex?” even before saying a hello. Well to be fair, there were a few nice boys as well, but these fellows came with either depression of failed relationships that they still held on to, or people who just would be better off as friends.
And yes, I was not looking for sex per say and in my mind looking for something meaningful and genuine [ I was genuinely done with the hook up phase and Tinder seemed like the only viable option to find a sanskari achcha sa ladka! *Don’t judge me guys :P*]
I had made a trip to Dubai a few months back and whilst I was there, came across a few more profiles, none of which interested me. My return flight was from Abu Dhabi and on the flight I had made the decision to quit the app since it was consistently disappointing me.
Just when I reached India and opened the app to delete it, I saw this Indian boy settled in Abu Dhabi had super liked me. For some reason, I thought I’ll give it a shot and talk to one last person.
Fast Forward to now. I have a ring on my finger. And who put it? The same Indian boy from Abu Dhabi. It has been nothing less than magic and more than anything, the biggest surprise gift I have ever received.
Getting a dream partner who is genuine, kind, mature to deal with your stupidity, patient [and good in bed ] is pretty much an impossible task these days and against all odds, Tinder came to our rescue.
Now as a I sit writing my story, with the widest grin on my face, I feel like I finally believe in the magic of “Love” and thanks to Tinder for helping me find my man! “
