When 24-year-old Date My Family bachelor Lakhanya confessed he has not dated anyone for four years, he didn’t know it will cause an uproar on social media.
As a result, Twitter was divided into opposing camps as soon as the young man declared that he hadn’t been in a relationship for four years.
Also, Lakhanya sparked a heated debate both on and off screen on Sunday. This follows his decision to end a four-year relationship break to find the love of his life.
While some didn’t believe a thing about what he said, others took aim at his chest hair which he left bare. In addition, some others decided to dump the blame on his bed which they said is the reason why he’s not been catching all the girls.
Taking a four-year break from dating might not be such a big deal. Nevertheless, fans of the show had a field day debating on the matter and making fun of Lakhanya.
Here are some of the funny comments and memes thrown at Date My Family bachelor Lakhanya;

Some fans were however on his side on the matter in a manner of speaking;
Lakhanya saying he's been single for 4 years doesn't mean he hasn't been with a girl for 4 yrs but been a fuckboy for 4 yrs. #DateMyFamily

During the episode, 24 year old Lakhanya was the bachelor searching for love. His profile says he’s a Retirement Fund Consultant who was looking for a woman that can complement him. “I want an open minded lady that is intelligent.”
There were three bachelorettes for him to chose from – The first hopeful was Ruth, a 25-year-old Artist, Wardrobe Supervisor & Makeup artist, 24-year-old Phindi who is a Business Development Manager and 25-year-old Andzisani who is currently completing her Masters Degree.
At the end, Lakhanya chose Andzisani because they hit it off during the first date. The couple even have a second picnic date already planned.
Well, hope ‘the bed’ won’t be a deal breaker after all.
