BOSTON, MA – Earlier this week, 25 year old Karthik Patel had successfully set up a day to meet a girl he had been messaging on popular South Asian dating app, Dil Mil.
“Kk see you Friday!” read the text he received from 24 year old Priya Sharma. Mr. Patel suggested that he and Ms. Sharma meet up at a local bar for a drink. He had been there once and the ambiance was ‘chill enough’ for a date.
Upon her arrival, Ms. Sharma realized, to her dismay, that the bar which Mr. Patel had chosen had several televisions all with various ESPN networks being shown.
While talking about how much they ‘love travel’ and how Mr. Patel goes home every weekend to get Indian food from his mom, Ms. Sharma appreciated that he had barely glanced at SportsCenter being shown on the TV behind her. An hour and half later, Ms. Sharma politely left and told Mr. Patel that she had had a “really good time.”
Upon asking Ms. Sharma how she felt about the date she said, “He was cool! Cute and actually really funny. Plus he didn’t talk about how he wants to get an MBA the entire time – better than most dates I’ve been on.”
“She was super chill and smart. I think I’ll ask her to watch the Pat’s game at my friends place next week”, remarked Mr. Patel.

WALTHAM, MA – While 24 year old Shreya Rahman is in no rush to tie the knot, she can’t help but mourn the loss of her only feminist, brown, guy friend’s single status.
Her friend, 26 year old Chirag Gandhi, got engaged last week – destroying any hope that him and his reportedly ‘basic’ girlfriend are ever breaking up.
According to Ms. Rahman, Mr. Gandhi is the only brown guy she’s met who’s masculinity isn’t threatened by whether his wife makes more money than him, isn’t squeamish about discussing menstrual periods, treats his younger sister like a person – not an overprotected puppy, and actually helps his mom with household chores instead of halfheartedly asking if she needs help and never actually getting up.
Upon asking her girl friends how they felt about Ms. Rahman’s grieving period, they had this to say, “Honestly, Shreya seriously needs to get out more. Most of her guy friends still go home just to eat Indian food and have basically become their fathers. There are more feminist brown dudes out there than she thinks and they’re awesome.”

NEW YORK, NY – Last week, 28 year old Jay Patel got down on one knee in picturesque Central Park and popped the question to his girlfriend, 27 year old Rima Desai.
Having met at a garba 3 years prior, Jay and Rima describe their relationship as, ‘loving, quirky, and honest.’ While Jay sings praises of his now fiancé , Rima always had her doubts about whether Jay would fall for her.
“Growing up, aunties would always ask why I haven’t gotten my arms waxed yet. I was told how no boy would like me but then Jay came along. He looked past my grotesque deformity and loved me for me!”, says Rima.
The couple celebrated their engagement with a family dinner in Manhattan where many family members were overjoyed, while some remained confused.
Rima’s distant family friend, Preeti Auntie had this to say, “Is she never getting her arms waxed? Do boys not have standards any longer? Sure she’s a successful attorney, fantastic artist, and major philanthropist, but how can her arms land such a great guy?”
