Swipe right to authenticity

Sara and Kusha highlighted the importance of being your true self when it comes to online dating.

Karo toh honesty se karo, imandari se karo aur shiddat se karo.” Both Sara and Kusha believe that being pretentious doesn’t take you far in life and certainly not on trustworthy dates. They also spoke about how passion is important in the beautiful concoction of dating. During the lovely and positive conversation between the three dynamic ladies, Sara emphasized on not falling under the norms set by society of looking “perfect”, but accepting and loving oneself the way they are.

Nothing over self-love and acceptance

The trio parted on some truly promising mantras that will be useful while going on a date. One such mantra is: while finding love is important, it is equally critical to love yourself unconditionally. As Sara rightly puts it out, “I feel that because I was a fat child, may be in those very formative years of my life, whether it’s with a guy, whether it’s with friends, whether it’s with just society in general, I never found my defining aspect through the way that I looked!”
