He asked, “Who want to be my Valentine? [sic]”. “Checkout my profile below, and if you are interested, comment me or message me, [sic]” he said. More than 2,000 women did, and this Gurgaon man picked five among them, took them on a date, together, and gifted them iPhones.
Dating app Tinder has worked for many when it comes to finding “true love” and flings, and many found life partners on matrimonial sites. But this Gurgaon man used Facebook to find himself a date this Valentine’s Day and guess what? It worked.

And what did he use to his advantage? WEALTH!
Shakul Gupta, whose bio once said “entrepreneur with an Audi A4”, made a Facebook post on February 11 and promised women who agree to be his Valentine a dinner date at Gurgaon’s Oberoi hotel, a brand new iPhone 7 of the person’s choice and “memorable moments”.
Two days after Valentine’s Day, he announced the overwhelming response he received and that it took a dedicated team five days to scan through more than 2,000 applications he received and to finally select the BEST FIVE.
The so-called herculean task of shortlisting 5 girls made him postpone his date. Finally on February 16, he went to the Oberoi with his five dates and posted a photo with them and five iPhones.
He also shared the photo of the bill and other Facebook users cannot seem to accept that a man actually pulled this off.
