Comment : Winter is more romantic, than summer, no two ways about that. But for a really 'hopeless romantic', I don't think seasons matter. They'll keep reaching out for love, solace & romance irrespective of the season. For the 'not so romantic at heart', I think we'd need a poll to decide... That'll be fun...

Everyone loves to cuddle up when it's cold right? Do you miss someone more in winters? Are you more open to romantic conversations in this weather? Does garam chai and snuggling up under a quilt make you smile? Let's talk

Comment : I have not used either of these services, but I do know that sometimes friendships can blossom with just 5 minutes of interaction. If two people who can relate to each other, are taking a ride together, their interaction can lead to friendship or even love...I'm pretty sure of that...

Uber and OLA, for those who aren't familiar with the service, are convenient cab services that facilitate travel within a city. Uber operates across India, America, Africa, China, UAE among many others. OLA is exclusively an Indian cab service. In a bid to introduce convenient and cheap travels, both the companies recently introduced a 'sharing' system. With this, you can share your cab with another person who books it at the same time as you and you share the bill with your co-passenger. While this is cost effective, could one through their combined travels find love or a friend in their co-passenger? Have you had any such experiences?

Comment : Funny question!! Well nothing is impossible... Lol... But from the ethical point of view, it doesn't seem justified. A man who is not ready for a faithful relationship shouldn't jump into a marriage...Then there are people who claim that an occasional fling brings back the connection in married life, but I wouldn't advocate the need for a fling...

What do you think? Is it possible for a man top divide his love equally? Or will it be a farce?

Comment : Small issues will crop up in any relationship, but if the relationship is founded on trust & true love, the question of breaking up doesn't even arise...

Money is never an easy subject to address, especially in a romantic relationship. If it's a live-in then it's even worse. But friction does happen over managing money, deciding whether an expense is a necessity or a luxury, if both partners should be equal contributors, if the one who is contributing more should have a greater say in matters of money? Questions are too many. But the biggest one of them is: can it break a couple, in spite of them being in love otherwise? What do you think?

Comment : I believe that if it's true love, it won't die out, even in a million years.In true love, no compromise is considered too big, to keep the relationship & love intact. On the other hand, if the relationship was based on any ulterior gains, & not on love, then the veneer will start thinning soon...

The spark, the wait and the love seem to be getting vanished after few years of marriage. Whether it's getting divided between the increasing members in family or somewhere getting vanished with this rush-over time of pseudo world responsibility..Is it really missing or somewhere the love awaits to be revealed ..it's just a hug away..What is your opinion?
