What can you possibly learn from dating someone who has a poor bank balance? Or for that matter someone who reads a lot of books?

Dating is taxing but it is one of those things that help build your character.

The Cheesy Romantic

Next

Who?

They get mushy whenever they see you.

They want everything to be 'lovey-dovey'.

They want to live in a fantasy land, and not to forget, they quote dialogues from Bollywood movies.

Why should I date them?

Experience the cliched romance of the Mills & Boons books or your favourite Yash Raj film. Who knows? Maybe this kind is your type.

The 'Opposite'

Next

Who? 

No, we are not propagating the 'opposites attract' theory.

If you are a shy person, go out with an extrovert. And if you are an extrovert try dating an introvert.

Why should I date them? 

You'll know to be around people with a completely different personality type. And don't think it'll be boring or difficult. Just go with the flow.

The Hipster

Next

Who?

Hipsters are people who think out-of-the-box and have absolutely no interest in being on the same page as you and I.

They have an itch to save Mother Nature (that's a good thing). And they will never have coffee; 100 per cent organic tea is their preference.

Why should I date them?

You'll be introduced to an alternate lifestyle; you'll soon realise they get a bad reputation for no reason.

The Party Animal

Next

Who?

The beasts of the night -- no, not vampires.

They are always looking for new ways to party. They love socialising which is why you'll always find them partying with a totally different group of people.

Why should I date them?

Even though their idea of fun and yours could be different, you'll still come across a different world of thumping music, dance moves and new people.

The Feminist

Prev

Next

Who?

Firstly, feminists don't hate men nor do they think all men are rapists.

They simply believe in gender equality.

Also, a feminist is a gender neutral noun. Anyone can be a feminist, male or female.

Why should I date them?

Dating a feminist is never a bad idea.

Date them to learn how to treat people for who they are and what they make of themselves instead of their sex.

Next

Who?

They know every new restaurant that has opened in town and every new type of tea brewed by that cafe downtown.

Why should I date them?

Dating a foodie is very advantageous.

You will learn a lot about food and fall in love with cuisines you've never heard of.

Next

Who?

We all have that one friend who tweets every event of their life, Instagrams every meal they have, constantly updates their relationship status and makes sure the internet knows everything about them.

Why should I date them?

You might feel uncomfortable about the 987654321 billion internet users who are privy to your life; unless you like that kind of attention.

Next

Who?

Their brains are huge.

They read almost anything and everything they can get their hands on. They have great knowledge of many things.

Why should I date them?

Dating a reader will involve hour-long conversations about literature, politics, history, controversies, food and what not.

Don't think of them as boring already; they're quality people.

Who?

The people who are always on a budget.

No, we are not financially discriminating against these folks.

You might think that being on a budget is a bad thing, but these are very smart people.

Why should I date them?

They know how to make every rupee count.

They'll teach you the hacks of having fun on a budget. But make sure you know if your date is actually clever or just being a miser.
