Noida Woman Requests ₹10,000 from Man for Date, Ignites Online Controversy


A recent incident in Noida has ignited a heated discussion about the evolving nature of dating and financial expectations. In a series of WhatsApp exchanges shared by men’s rights activist Deepika Narayan Bhardwaj, a woman requested ₹10,000 from a man for a coffee date, citing expenses for waxing, manicure, clothes, and makeup. This demand has highlighted the increasing materialism in modern relationships, where financial contributions often overshadow emotional connections.

“Dating in India ain’t for beginners….”
