Introducing Dr Love, who solves your relationship riddles in a confusing digital age
I met a girl recently who teaches for a living. I went to her to be taught, and liked her a lot, so I asked her for her number. She gave it to me and we began chatting on WhatsApp. We now chat pretty regularly, but I am always the one who has to initiate a conversation. What can I do to impress her? I want her to chat with me too. I really like her a lot. Please help. — Rizwan
If you are already chatting with her, I suppose the only thing you can do is continue to be yourself as much as possible, because this ridiculous notion of impressing a woman comes only from puerile and inane Hindi cinema. You don't have to impress anyone. You simply have to get them to see you for who you are and get to know you better. If you can manage that, and she decides to tell you a little more about herself too, it means she wants to know you better. It's all about communication. Don't ruin it by trying to be something you're not. Life is not a Salman Khan movie.
My only wish, before I die, is to date a famous person at least once. Is there anything you can do to make this happen? I know it's ridiculous, but I want to be able to tell my family and friends that I went out to dinner with someone famous, just once.
There's nothing I can do to help, unfortunately. I'd like to point out, however, that your definition of fame may be radically different from everyone else's. I also know that a lot of famous people are usually just like everyone else, and it sometimes brings out the worst characteristics in a human being. You should keep all of this in mind and be careful what you wish for. Until then, why not date regular folk? The chances of finding happiness may be a lot higher that way.
