Young S from Cambridge shares her tale.
“I am an Indian living in the UK and I go to an all girls school. I thought it would be nice to get some attention from boys. Hence I chose Tinder.
Being in a mostly white country, whenever an Indian popped up I immediately swiped right. He was good looking and we hit it off immediately. We connected and he was ever so romantic but he was miles away from me but we really wanted to see each other, so we thought we will meet in a city between us. He was in London and I was in Cambridge. So he was two hours away by train.
I was ever so scared – I never left Cambridge without my parents, forget Cambridge I never left the centre of town without them. But now I am leaving the city to meet a guy I never met. I thought let’s do it! Its worth a shot.
I had to get train tickets myself and find the timings all which I have never done before. I got on the train. Half of me told me to get off, don’t take the risk, the other half told me take the risk, live your life. I listened to the latter.
We met at the station and had lunch and decided to play mini golf. I told him I’ve never kissed because I wanted to keep my casual relationship a secret.
I was praying for the typical romantic scenario to happen where the guy comes up from behind you and teaches you how to play golf and he did! Then he kissed me and this was my first good kiss. We carried on playing, we would make cheeky bets and we had a good time. But he had to leave early and I didn’t know what to make of it.
I texted him later saying we should meet again because I really liked him. He said, “Sorry, we cant meet up,” because he felt like there was no chemistry. No chemistry!?! I was upset but I moved on.
After all the risks I took for him, he rejected me. My friends say I’ve become very rebellious and I like it- I’m having fun.
I’m meeting another Indian next week, hope it works!”
