Asiana in conversation with Mitz Patel, star of Channel 4's First Dates
The wedding season is almost upon us; the time when single Asian men and women are constantly reminded that time is ticking away to find 'The One.' But how many dates would you go on in the search to find the perfect soul mate? Mitz Patel, a 35-year-old IT Project Manager (who had never been in a relationship), decided to take the plunge in the search to find a soul mate by appearing on the Channel 4 television series First Dates.
Little was he aware of the magnitude of the reactions he would get, following his attempts to charm his blind date, which generated a mix of responses across the Twitter and tabloid world.
So who is this Mitz Patel – a serial dater, helpless fibber, traditionalist, or simply an honest guy who is not afraid of breaking the norm by not conforming to what is socially expected from him by men and women of his own generation?
