This guy probably lives the life that every man wishes to live.
Cartoonist Scott Adams once famously said, “Nothing defines humans better than their willingness to do irrational things in the pursuit of phenomenally unlikely payoffs. This is the principle behind lotteries, dating, and religion.”
All those men who can only dream about dating a new woman each day: this man is going to definitely make you jealous.
Chennai-based fashion photographer and actor Sunder Ramu’s only aim was to experience something new and positive every day. He decided to fulfil this dream in the most bizarre yet beautiful way: going on 365 dates this year.
His condition: Women have to take him out and pay for their meal. He is also open to them cooking for him.
His vision: Sponsor and enjoy a meal with all the residents of an NGO at the end of every month.
Since men can’t take him out on a date, they often contribute to his cause of sponsoring meals to NGOs.
Although a professional photographer, he does not carry a camera on his dates. “I do not want the camera to be a distraction or interfere in our conversation,” he says adding that he uses his iphone 4 to take the pictures.
How does a typical date look like?
Sunder says, “No two dates are the same and I am glad about it.”
Every person he meets has a different and interesting story to tell.
Has he fallen in love with any of the women?
If I do, that would be great. Now or whenever. However, that is not the idea. Next year, if I still miss or want to reach out to one particular person then I will try and do so. But this year, I don’t want to use this as a way of finding someone.
Are there days he does not feel like going out on a date?
“Yes. There are days that I have too much work or when I am exhausted or I don’t want to meet anybody. On those days I do not keep any plans. I do not want the experience to be a forced one. But such days are rare,” he says.
The idea is to go out on 365 dates this year and this does not necessarily have to be one date per day. Sunder has also gone out on two dates in a day and is eagerly looking forward to the rest of the year ahead.
