Phoebe Cary has rightly said, “Never is true love blind, but rather brings an added light.”

This wonderful quote explains the beauty of love and gives strength to the fact that love can happen anywhere with anyone and in any instance. This is one of the reasons why people are not shying away from exploring the concept of a blind date. It is one of the increasing trends that are followed by the younger generations who are not afraid to experiment even in the territory of love. If you are still in a dilemma whether to go for a blind date or not, here are the few factors that can encourage you to try it for once.

The mystery is the key element

 There are lots of people who are simply enthralled with surprises or mysteries and this is where bling dating becomes interesting. When you don’t have the slightest idea about a person with whom you are going to meet, it automatically adds a unique layer of excitement and euphoria in the whole process of dating.

No strict rules & algorithms to follow

 When you know a person for a long time personally and has agreed to go on a date, it becomes a lot of hard work to impress your partner according to his/her choice and preference. However, there is no such baggage in a blind dating and you can wear anything and can behave the way you want.

The charm of old school tricks

If you have always been fascinated by the old school tricks and charm, bling dating is simply for you. Isn’t it interesting to meet someone unfamiliar who has been arranged by your best friend, colleague or family member keeping in mind your preferences for a guy or gal? It is a special kind of feeling which can give you goosebumps as well as make you elated in anticipation of your “perfect soul mate”.

As two individuals are meeting each other for the first time in a blind dating, so there is virtually a lot of stuff to talk about. Both the individuals can talk and ask about each other hobbies, profession, life goals, favourite movies and other such things in order to explore each other in a better way. Moreover, there would not be any instances of long pauses when you know each other for a long time before.

A gateway to future love stories

 As we all know life is unpredictable, so who knows where a blind dating can take two unknown individuals in their future life. May be they could start dating each other seriously or can even tie up nuptials for a life long journey. It could be that your blind dating can be a perfect future love story in the making.

So the verdict is out! The underdog of the year “Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety” has entered the much coveted “100 crores” club. It is the second movie of this year to find its strong place in this club. If you have loved Pyar Ka Punchnama and its misogynistic ethics, you would surely adore this one too. The only difference is that this time Luv Ranjan (director) just got better with the plot and treatment, Karthik Aryan improved his dialogue delivery, and Nusrat Bharucha learned to steal the show even when the script gave her less space.

If you still haven’t watched it or still dwindling in two-minds to watch it, here are 6 strong reasons to enjoy the show!

A Friend in Need is a Friend Indeed

In India, they say that marriage happens between two families. But in cities, friends have become the new family. So for a marriage to work, it is imperative that your friends like the new person in your life and vice versa” said the director. Titu is a ludicrous guy who would cry when his girlfriend is upset as he checked her Tinder account without seeking her permission! He needs a Sonu who would shower some sanity to him that “while you are in a live-in relationship with someone, you should not have Tinder”. Sonu goes to the extreme extent of breaking the marriage of Titu with Sweety as she is a dominating and clever minded gold-digger.

Our suggestion- don’t listen to them!! If there is love in the heart and face of that special someone always lights up your day, then distances don’t matter. We are not saying that a long-distance relationship is going to be all smiles and no tears. Of course, there are going to be a few challenges, like any other relationship, but the proper communication, clarity, and commitment will let it sail smoothly.

So here are some golden tips to keep your long-distance relationship alive and strong!!

Be Open about Your Feelings

Hiding feelings and not letting your partner know how you feel about your relationship does no good to anyone. Talk to them about anything and everything!! If there are some qualities of your partner that you adore with all your heart, do let them know. Similarly, if any of their habits bother you, never hide it from them. Because you never know when the little obstacles can become mountains and ruin the relationship.

Communicate Regularly and Clearly

No matter how busy or engaged we get in life, we all need some time alone. And being alone doesn’t mean lonely. After all, self-introspection help us realize our strengths and weaknesses that strive us to become a better person, which benefits our partner in a great way. When in the long-distance relationship, people sometimes have these impractical expectations that their partner will answer their calls in the very first ring and respond straight away to every text. Don’t keep such expectations!! Give enough space to your partner to let your relationship grow organically.

Honesty and Trust Is the Key

Do not let the paranoia swallow up your peace of mind. Honesty and trust must be the foundation of every relationship. And if you ever doubt that your partner is not being loyal to you, then instead of spying on their social media accounts, go and talk directly to them before it gets too late.

Visit Each Other As Much As You Can
