An online dating app partners with actor Radhika Madan, who shares a few tips and tricks
Actor Radhika Madan has partnered with an online dating app Bumble to encourage single Indians to make the first move towards healthy and equitable connections as the app aims to bring fun back into dating in 2021.
She shares dating tips and tricks, and breaks down the barriers around dating.
When asked what dating advice she would like to give to single people in India, Radhika says, “If you are someone who is an old school romantic just like me, don’t play by the rules, make your own rules!”
Speaking of her association with the online dating app, she says, “My experience working with Bumble has been really great. They are the change makers, they have broken a lot of taboos. It’s always fun partnering up with them and I’m looking forward to working with them again.”
“It’s very important to normalise women making the first move. It’s a very dated concept that guys should make the first move. A lot of times you find someone cute and you want to talk to them. It’s not just about dating them but just wanting to know them or having that curiosity but because of the conditioning and social pressure from your friends, you end up not talking to that person, which I feel is a lost opportunity. So, kudos to the app for normalising this and inspiring a lot of women to make the first move,” she adds.
Speaking about the partnership, Samarpita Samaddar, Bumble India PR Director shares, “As single Indians overcome challenges and barriers to this new world of dating, we hope people will be inspired by Radhika to make the first move and forge new connections in 2021.”
