7 On-Screen Couples That Didn't Work Because They Didn't Go On Enough Dates!

Swagata Dam , 02 Jul 2015

I am a sucker for romance and all my life, I’ve craved a relationship that will last forever and beyond. Why? Let Shah Rukh Khan tell you why.

But even Karan Johar, who made Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, doesn’t believe in this theory anymore! That’s why he made Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna. And I’ve also realized over time that dating various people until you find your soulmate is way cooler than hopelessly waiting for your Mr./Ms. Right or whimsically getting into a serious relationship with any Tom, Dick or Hansa just because you’re bored of being single.

I am not trying to say that an everlasting relationship with THE ONE is too much to ask for. But you might just come across your ulitmate Prince Charming/Dream Girl after falling in and out of love with a lot of other people. Hence, I totally feel that everyone from our generation must go out on a lot of dates (with the same person or different ones – to each his own) before taking the plunge. That’s because it’s better to know the person(s), spend some quality time together and learn about each other rather than finding yourself in a disastrous/suffocating bond. Here’s a list of a few reel-life couples who prove that they should have dated longer because their relationships went HORRIBLY WRONG!

Nick & Amy (Gone Girl)

Nick and Amy are the embodiment of love gone wrong. We all know how fu**ed up their relationship turned out to be! They would’ve saved lives had they not gotten married.

Kabir & Natasha (Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara)

If Kabir had dated Natasha for longer, he would’ve definitely realised that his threshold to handle her tantrums is quite limited. And IF he dated other women, maybe he could find someone who got along with his best friends.

Dean & Cindy (Blue Valentine)

They fell in love, they got married and they had a baby. But their story was a far cry from the quintessential ‘Happily Ever After’ romance. Sometimes love is not enough. Compatibility, common interests and a lot of other things play a pivotal role in making a relationship work. That’s exactly why two people should go out there and date to find the one they *really really really* click with.

Geet & Anshuman (Jab We Met)

Geet was a one-man woman and she left her family for a certain stupid man who ditched her. If she was only dating Anshuman and not in a ‘relationship’ with him, she could’ve probably enjoyed her train journey with Aditya Kashyap a lot more. Perhaps then they would’ve exchanged numbers and seen each other for a while before committing!

Eddie & Lila (The Heartbreak Kid)

This movie proves one should never jump into a marriage. Date more, date longer! Have good conversations, have fun! Live.

Raj & Simran (I Hate Luv Storys)

Umm. Just because your name is Simran and you meet a boy named Raj, you shouldn’t hallucinate and see your dream man in him. Sometimes you find love where you least expect to find it. So till then, keep dating and chilling!

Charlotte & John (Lost In Translation)

Charolette was married to John but she feels lonely and disconnected even when he’s around. However, she finds herself magically drawn towards Bob, who’s practically a stranger.

So guys, go out there! Meet more people (through your friends or through dating apps like Truly Madly), date them, bond over drinks or dinner, watch movies, go on trips, chill! So basically, date till you find your soulmate. Wow, it rhymes!
