You weren’t kidding… When you said this
is your first time meeting someone off an app. Why would I kid about that? I should
have guessed. Considering your choice of place… and your extremely honest
profile. So that’s a bad thing now? Yeah! Yeah! Of course it’s bad. What happened to all
that #WanderLust, #Sapiosexual #SomeBigWord that makes you seem cool. You can see all my insecurities
for yourself now that I’m here. You have no idea about the kind of people
that one has to deal with on these apps. Order, sir. Uhm… You know what you want? Uhm… No… But why don’t you order? You go for it. You sure? Yeah. Yeah you know this place. Okay. One Thenthuk. One Xogoi Momo. No cabbage in the Thenthuk though. Yes, sir. Can I get some Bhasta noodle instead? Yes, sir. And… No potatoes in the Xogoi. Yes, sir.
And last time… Why don’t you go into the kitchen
and cook them yourself? I actually have done that once. What?! Really? Sorry. Uhm… Hi, mom. No! I’m out with a few friends. I’ll call you tomorrow?
Alright. I love you.
Bye. Sorry. Actually you’re not doing too bad
for a first-timer. Really? That’s good to know. And I had told my friend to
fake an emergency call in case… things were going downhill.
You know? So… Oh, really? yeah? Uhm… You thought that was my mother calling? That was your mom! Yeah. It was! Well… It’s very ahead of its time. It is a great song. It is a classic… Way ahead of its time! At least my email id was not
[email protected] Right! Ouch! Okay. So… We are even. We’ll call it quits. Yeah. Sure. Do you wanna come home for some coffee? You know I’d love to. But I… I have an early start tomorrow. So… Let’s call it a night. If… That’s okay? Yeah! Cool. Good night. Sorry! Bye! See you. But.. You know..
I’d really like to try that.. Your version of that… Then… Thup… Then? Really? That? Yeah! That would be great! So… Let’s do that Saturday? If… If Saturday is okay with you. Yeah! Saturday night is great. Super. So then Saturday it is. Okay. Great! I’ll see you Saturday. You don’t need my number? Shit! Sorry. Just put it in there. Thanks. Good night!
Good night. See ya! Hey! Do you know how to get to this address? Run! Run! Wait! Stop! Hey… Shruti… Gautam. How are you? Good! Uhm… I was around. So I thought I’d drop by. Good. I tried calling your phone. But I… I couldn’t get through. Oh, yeah my phone! That’s another story. Come. Come. What happened to your phone though? Don’t ask, man. I was outside Lhasa… And these two guys
pulled up on a bike asking for directions. They just snatched the phone out of my hand and drove away. What?! Are you serious? Yeah! It’s insane. I was just going to ask you who
that pretty girl at Lhasa was. What girl? Seriously? You’re going to be that guy? What girl and all? One second…
One second… You were at Lhasa…And you didn’t even
come over to say hi? Okay I was just passing by. Besides… Isn’t it weird if an Ex gatecrashes your… Date? Yeah… Maybe. But still quite a dick move if you ask me. Listen… We were together for five years and you
still felt awkward introducing me as your girlfriend. So… Yeah. You want to have some tea? Yes! Do you still have that lemongrass tea? How much longer are you going to delay this? Just move out already. Aren’t you paying rent for that other
place as well? I’m moving, man. If you have too much money to spend… You should give it to
me. I’ll take care of it. Isn’t that the same phone you used while in college? Yeah! It still works? Just about. I’m just happy I found it. I was just checking if I had anything important on it.
Else I would just format it and… If you didn’t need it all this while, you don’t need it now.
Format it. Really? Check this out. “Haha. Call me after class.
Also I love you.” Shit! This is gold. Also. Wasn’t this the first time you used the ‘L word’? Yeah. And what did you say? Wait. Let me check. “Haha. I like you too :* ” With a kissy face. Thanks! I was so nervous.. For one week I thought I was on the verge
of being friendzoned. Wait, wait. This is a big one. “I am tired of your insecurities coming up at the drop of a hat. You do deserve
better, but this is all I have. This is me.” I can’t remember what this was about. You don’t… This was when you went back to
your folks place for a couple of months. You had quit Drent.
You don’t remember? Yeah… I think it was the first time since we had been together.
That… That we were apart for so long. I didn’t know how to be without you… Damn, son! See… I really loved you!
I recorded and sent you an MMS. It cost nine rupees to send an MMS.
True love! “You have a new MMS from Shruti.
Click here to open. http://…” Oh my God! Hi, Ashwin! Can I call you later? No… I am at Divya’s place. Yeah! Yeah. I’ll see you tomorrow.
Yeah. Bye! Good night.
Love you too. So then I just got a little tired and
went to Neel for a little while. Just pass me that Sugar? But even that, you know… It’s still the same.
That seashell? What was that… Gautam. I am getting married. What? I’m… Getting married. Wow! That’s… That’s great news!
Congrats! That’s fantastic. Uhm… Ashwin proposed this afternoon and I
said yes. Wow! Then I came here. Look. I know that this is going
a little bit too fast. But… It just feels right. You know… Yeah. Good. So… What’s your scene with the Lhasa girl? Nothing yet.
That was the first time I met her. Really? Don’t tell me you met her off some
app. Yeah. I did. So… What is that supposed to mean? Nothing. Nothing. I didn’t that you would… You didn’t think that I would what?
That I would move on… No! That’s not what I meant at all, Gautam. Do you know that this was the first date that I had been on
since we broke up? I am sorry.. I didn’t… No! No! No! One second. I am sorry.
Alright? I am sorry that I wasn’t able to move on, overnight.
Like you were. Stop being a child, Gautam! Literally, overnight! Okay. You’re making me sound like I’m some heartless
bitch. You know this wasn’t easy for me, right? Of course it was! Of course it was!
It was dead easy for you. Fine. I don’t need to listen to this shit anymore. Oh! That’s… That’s great! Just walk away.
Like you do! You know… Like every time things get a little bit hard, walk away! You know what. I can’t have this conversation… I can’t
have the same fight with you again… I can’t keep proving my love and have these
accusations thrown at me. You’ve never understood and you never will. Shruti, you just woke up one day and you just left!
You just left. Oh God! Gautam stop saying
the same thing over and over again! One second… Are you even listening to yourself?
How are these things adding up in your head? Are you listening to yourself. I’m sorry. I’m sorry, Gautam. I’m really sorry. I am tired of us going around the same circles, man!
I am sorry. I can’t! I can’t deal with this again and again. I wasn’t happy. Neither were you! I can’t! I just can’t! Please?
We can’t keep doing the same thing again. You’ve got to know that this was the most difficult decision
I have ever had to take in my life. It wasn’t easy. It was really hard. I’m sorry.
I can’t do this all over again. I am sorry. Yeah. I… I wouldn’t want you to either.
