AT A VOL­UN­TEER­ING OP­POR­TU­NITY: What bet­ter way to meet a gen­uine guy than at a non-profit or vol­un­teer­ing op­por­tu­nity? Help­ing oth­ers to­gether will leave you both feel­ing bonded over a joint mis­sion, and even if things don’t ac­tu­ally work out, you’d have made a bunch of new, ‘nice’ friends. PS: stud­ies show that per­form­ing al­tru­is­tic acts can make you more per­son­able and at­trac­tive!

Nalini Dutt, 28, is a Delhi-based jour­nal­ist who first met her boyfriend Prashant Bhasin at the Blind School, where they both hap­pened to vol­un­teer ev­ery sec­ond Satur­day. “I do be­lieve that a guy with a phil­an­thropic or char­i­ta­ble side will most likely do the de­cent thing by you. To me, a match in val­ues is such an im­por­tant part of a re­la­tion­ship. Prashant and I have been dat­ing for a year now. He’s a great guy.”

Find a cause you feel pas­sion­ately about, and of­fer to help—whether it’s man­ning a puppy adop­tion stall over the weekend, or par­tic­i­pat­ing in a char­ity marathon. Op­tion­ally, check out vol­un­teeringinin­dia.org to know more about the vol­un­teer­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties near you.
