GirlfriendGautam is single and is not dating anyone. He said, "I am not so much of a romantic person. I can never woo a girl. I will first consider her as my friend and will treat her as my soul mate. I just can't keep on saying a girl I LOVE YOU just like that. However, I am trying to change my attitude as well. I wish I can talk to girls in that manner. I am a practical lover and I only get attached when I love some one else I am very balanced. I want to change this in me as its difficult for me to go away from someone whom I am close to."
