Dating and matrimonial sites
He was 40, never married and coming to Mumbai soon to see his parents and wanted to meet.
Having no recollection of him, the next day I checked him out on the website.
Actually despite not fitting my desired age profile, he was very good looking.
That together with being a millionaire, I decide there was every point in meeting him.
Instead I would get the odd message saying there was someone I may be interested in or they were interested in me even though they didn’t represent the profile I was seeking. It was an odd call as he didn’t ask me a single question. The information I elicited from him was that he was a millionaire, who had run his own equity business in the US, had made so much dosh he had now retired and was living off the interest and his stocks and shares.
This was more controllable, so I stayed with it and occasionally selected one. He was interested in me as he was thinking of moving to the UK, as it was closer to India than the US.
Soon after he arrived in Mumbai, rang me up and suggested Saturday. I thought that meant meeting, but in fact he was making an appointment for a phone call. I obliged and 2pm Saturday we spoke again – for two hours. He was wearing beige chinos and a stripey polo shirt that looked drab, cheap and old fashioned. My immediate concern was that I would not feel comfortable taking him to Olive with my friends on Thursday.
