Still, Basra’s time forging happiness as a single woman taught her that she’ll be OK, no matter her relationship status. But I also know if things don’t work out for whatever reason, like we’ll always be really good friends and have each other’s back,” Basra says.

It was a humbling experience to watch Gurki manage her time with Justin, and her handling of the situation really struck a chord with the crew… her strength, elegance.

Adolphus appeared in Basra’s episode at the end when she chose to go on a second date with herself instead. He turned around and looked at her as she was walking down the street.

The ‘Mandalorian’ Season 3, Episode 4 Deep Dive

Netflix’s Dating Around is already poised to be your new reality TV obsession. A diverse set of singletons embark on a series of dates that have sweet, awkward, and amusing moments all cut together. The daters are adorable, the banter is passable, and you’ll watch as strangers open up to each other in this highly constructed version of a reality Lovestruck chatting dating show. In episode 2 of Dating Around, singleton Gurki has a particularly troubling interaction with her date, Justin, that has left the internet with strong feelings. One of those guys is Justin, a guy who works in real estate, loves Miller High Life, hates cats, and dreams of rocking the stage (even though he can’t play guitar).

However, Gurki also admits that she had doubts about their relationship early on, which Justin latches onto. “Who says yes to getting married, and you have doubts?!” he asks, confounded. “This is called culture clash,” she responds, reiterating that he doesn’t understand what it was like to be in her position. And that’s why Basra went on Dating Around in the first place — to show that life after divorce is still a life. “I remember when I got divorced, everyone was so fucking dramatic about it. I think if there are people out there who are unhappy and in horrible marriages, it’s okay. You can make that choice,” Basra said. Eventually, Basra started talking back to Justin’s proclamations, leading to their final fight.

Even with their faults, I admire how dedicated they are to ensuring they continue to make their partnership work. Those values have influenced me deeply and what I am looking for in a partner. His life is hectic because he’s a film director and has a 10-year-old.

The moment crackles with potential, with New York Times reporter Amanda Hess noting on Twitter, “I ship Gurki and this guy now.” Today, Basra credits that date from hell with leading to her current relationship—with none other than Dating Around’s director, James Adolphus. His vibe seemed to totally shift in the Lyft home with almost all the women?? I was shocked by his pick but they both seemed like super nice people. He may be a ladies’ man, but Luke is ready to settle down — after some light drinking, deep kissing and one date’s awkward-but-adorable door snafu.

“That’s what you do in Indian culture. You date someone, you get married. I had doubts, but I went through with it anyway because I wasn’t sure,” Basra said. Justin, a white man, didn’t try to understand her perspective. The next time I saw him was after we had filmed every single date.

The format of the show allowed Gurki to go on five blind dates with five distinct personalities. Throughout the dates, she discussed her Punjabi-American family background, culture, and previous relationship, which ended up in divorce. She revealed that she got married because of societal pressure, even though she had doubts about her future husband. Though most of her dates were supportive and understanding, Justin called her out for being dishonest during her marriage. Over dinner and drinks, he constantly questioned her choices and criticized saying that nobody would be able to trust her.

(And it is.) Another reason Ann is a surprising pick for Justin is that Barbara seemed like the frontrunner after Justin kissed her as they overlooked Bourbon Street. In the end, though, Justin and Ann met up in the daytime later that week and went to a museum. I just wanted to inspire people, and hope that other women that were divorced found some inspiration that you can be happy and it’s okay,” Basra says. While the other guys seemed to understand that and even complimented her for being honest, Justin couldn’t let it go. I still can’t believe casting picked that dude for Gurki.

She said it’s not uncommon for Joaquim or his brothersPedroandGui,who also teach the martial art, to travel with them for days at a time, which explains why she’s been seen out and about with him on many occasions. By the time Dating Around premiered in February 2019, Adolphus and Basra were back to living on opposite coasts, but keeping in touch. Adolphus witnessed the drastic impact Dating Around had on her life.
