Bhau­mik Sampat,

Cosmopolitan (India) - - MEN & YOU - It’s Po­etic

for the first time when I was five-years-old. She was a year older than me, so you could say that I’m into older women (ha ha!) In my teens I found my­self go­ing gaga for these good look­ing women and that was love for me.

For bet­ter or worse, not much has changed (I’m still a sucker for good look­ing women), but I’ve re­alised there’s a shift in my pri­or­i­ties. I was cheated on in an ear­lier re­la­tion­ship and I think that re­ally made me bit­ter to­wards the idea of be­ing in love. All that has changed, I want to set­tle down now. I have yet to ex­pe­ri­ence true love but I am look­ing for­ward to it, so wish me luck!” “I once read some­where ‘The best things in life can’t be seen or touched’. Cliché as it might be, sounds a lot like love...doesn’t it? It’s a pretty cool chain re­ac­tion—the more you give, the more you get. Fall­ing in love is a com­plete stress buster—it helps me cope with a world of chal­lenges that seem scary at times. You def­i­nitely make a con­scious de­ci­sion to start dress­ing well, look­ing bet­ter, and pretty much putting the best ver­sion of your­self out there. Talk about an ef­fec­tive con­fi­dence booster!

Back in high school, love meant red roses, choco­lates, hold­ing hands, find­ing silly ex­cuses to drop her home just to spend more time to­gether.

Grow­ing older, that feel­ing has ma­tured as well. It’s more about dis­cov­er­ing each other and mak­ing plans for the fu­ture.”
