Comment : Not only in the context of a relationship but also as an individual in the society, you must assert your self-worth. Otherwise, people take you for granted and tend to suppress anger within yourself!

After all, when you say I love you; you say I first. If your 'I' isn't strong enough, evolved enough - the relationship can never be fullfilling.

Comment : Romance? Not sure! Snogging and snuggles...yes! Even with a stranger in the metro. Winter is season for searching warmth...anyway it comes is good.

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 : Nice indeed! I think that we are on the verge of a movement promoting equality in India, which is very subtle but sure nonetheless! More and more people are believing in a family setup where both the partners share the load of earning and household chores on equal terms!

What is change, if it’s not you and me changing the world? Could we have changed the convention and come together as a nation collectively to fight for women and their safety at the dawn of 2017?

Comment : It depends on the act of attachment & detachment at the same time. Why does one get jealous in the first place? Because he/she thinks that their respective place is being taken up someone else...which is nothing but wrong. We address jealousy issue by attaching with each other on the occasions we are together, while detach ourselves when we are doing our individual things. For instance, my friend/wife's lunch or dinner plan with her (male) colleague is not my space to enter while my banter with a British brunette on the social media platforms is not her thing to be bothered about. Nonetheless, we both enjoy our weekend outings and late night intellectual debates where no male colleague or British lass enters our emotional space!!!

In today's times, where men and women interact freely with each other ,how do you deal with and address jealousy issues in your relationship?

Comment : Well it is not a problem if you're honest to yourself. As the French always say that you can love more than one person but in different ways. At home you're engaged in a different project while at work the scenario is different...so I don't view this as a problem as long as you define the relationships very clearly. Like your spouse can be your late night movie watching partner while your workplace friend can be a good weekday lunch date. Make sure to enjoy with both of your "friends" and not neglect or compromise one relationship for the other!!!

Close proximity for hours between two like minded people of opposite sex - who can deny this recipe for a delectable romance brewing? Conflict happens when these two people are in a work relationship as well. The boundary between work relationship and romance is always at a risk of being fluid and shifting. If two such people meet and work for long hours on an assignment or a project, close understanding graduating to a romance seems possible. Given today's work pressures and hours, is it acceptable to have a mutually agreeable romantic relationship with a colleague without compromising the marriage at home?
