How did you get selected in the show?
During our interaction with Upen and Karishma, they mentioned that intimacy and trust are major pillars in any relationship and since this was missing in ours, they thought they could help us through this show
What do you think are major issues in today's youth's relationships
In general trust is a major issue among couples nowadays. Everyone has access to Facebook and several social networking media....even girls are being vocal...It all contributes to trust issues among today's generation.
How different are reality shows than fiction shows?
They are completely different. In this show especially there were cameras all around recording our conversations and actions and each episode is only of 1 hour. So, what is shown and what gets edited can make or break your image on national television.
Share your experience with the hosts of the show
Both were extremely helpful and concerned about each couple. Their chemistry is equally great off screen
Why Loveschool ?
Intention of doing the show was to have a small break from my daily routine and spend quality time with my girlfriend and try to take our relationship to the next level.
Did the show actually benefit in improving your relationship?
To some extent yes as there were certain tasks which made us test each other and got us closer hence making the bond stronger.
