For many of us, February 14 usually involves picking up some flowers, greetings, chocolates, and gifts on the way home from the office and hoping the best ones haven’t already gone. Or showing your special one how much you love and care by attempting to bake for the first and last time.
Luckily, Valentine’s Day can be a whole lot more exciting and successful. Though it is just a day away and people around the globe try for innovative ways to impress their special ones. In the same way, a man in Gurugram city is now in the news for trying one such innovative or rather a bizarre approach by putting himself up for rent on Valentine’s Day.
Shakul Gupta, a 26-year-old Gurgaon-based entrepreneur, is all ready to rent himself out and provide four “packages” from “holding hands” to “anything you want” on Valentine’s Day this year. He has posted an advertisement for himself on Facebook. The caption of the ad, which was posted on 10 February, states: “Valentine’s Day boyfriend for rental”.
The post has been shared over 3000 times and has been liked by more than 63K people. In this ad, Shakul revealed four different packages for those interested in his offer. The four packages vary from “holding hands and kissing on the forehead” to “anything” the interested one wants.
Gupta has also offered to give his “prospective girlfriends” a glimpse of their favorite fictional characters, including Christian Grey, Billionaire playboy, Sweet lover and Bad boy. But if you prefer to just lazy around, he could make you “any kind of food” and watch Netflix too. “Your family will love me and so will your friends,” Gupta, who describes himself as generous, open-minded and idealistic, says on Facebook.
Gupta, who claims to be the CEO and founder of Softoku.com, crowdsourced his Valentine’s date on Facebook in 2017. He is also offering a discount. He said that by using a promo code “RICHGUY”, one can get a whopping discount of up to 20% and also a free ride in his Audi A4 car.
When asked why he is doing this, Gupta promptly said, “just for fun and to find a Valentine.” Gupta’s offer, however, has some terms and conditions like he cannot protect his “prospective Valentine” from cockroaches, or eat seafood or have fashion and beauty conversation with her.
Check out his Facebook post that will give you a detailed description of Shakul and his four exclusive ‘boyfriend on rent’ packages for Valentine’s.
