Shikin and Subeer shared a hug upon meeting for dinner at Open Farm Community in 2016. After their meal, they explored the restaurant’s farm and had some fun at the playground before catching the last train home together.
“When it came to the end of the night, I got a sense that it wasn’t meant to be so I didn’t ask for her number and was happy to leave things as that. I enjoyed the date for what it was. Shikin made me really comfortable and I guess my takeaway from the date was
that I should look for someone in the future who is just as easygoing. I went about my life as usual and in March last year, I met Kim at a volunteer event. We started chatting and going out soon after. As much as it’s fun getting to know one another, it’s still hard work – definitely something I’m working on with Kim right now. My approach to dating and relationships is to keep things simple and stay true to myself – in my case, that means letting my hair down. Quite literally.” (Editor’s note: Subeer is now rocking long hair and a fuller beard.) – Subeer
