Marital Bliss maker eh??

Do you believe in marriages through matrimonial websites...like Bharatmatrimony, Jeevansathi, Simply Marry etc etc (in the indian context) ???

And how many of you have put up profiles on such websites...seriously or just for fun or maybe for the future???

To be honest...i have put up my profile there...but then never taken it that seriously till date...and i am sure i have a few more years before i start taking them seriously :D

So lets hear from you guys...come on tell us if you have put up your profile there...and the reason behind it..and how has your experience been so far??

cheers!! :D

Keshi said...

I hv never been on Personals. But I hv read em for cousins n friends. Some r seriously retarded Ads. Cos all they ever talk abt is Assets, Caste, Job, Height, Complexion etc etc.

*boring* and nowhere close to what Marriage really requires!

Keshi.

maverick said...

@keshi...lol..ha ha ha ....

u knw u shud check out tamilmatrimony.com :D

Keshi said...

lol heading there now!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

omgggggggggggggggggggg! I just went to that site and there's a combobox to select ur RELIGION, RACE and CASTE!!!!!!

I killed the browser straight away cos I was gonna faint again!

Keshi.

maverick said...

@keshi...lol..well in india people's folks do give importance to caste n religion..plus they have been added to refine the search results...ntn more

Keshi said...

**plus they have been added to refine the search results

I know..but it only brings out the same CASTE/RACE etc. but does it define a person?


Keshi.

maverick said...

@keshi...well if u see the profile...what ppl write there abt themselves defines them...the refinement allows u to get their faster...n in a country like india..not havng tht wud make a difference...n theres always an option to select "others" from the drop down box :)

Keshi said...

ok Mav so basically ur telling ur in those Personals too, cos u think they'd work? LOL!

Keshi.

Aphrodite said...

Meghan said...

I don't try to find love through websites, I just do it the old fashioned way by getting drunk at the bar.

Hi ,

I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be wow.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘Fighters always fight’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

Cheers,

Aphrodite said...

Spiky Zora Jones said...

sweetie are you looking for someone to settle down with? Like are you looking for a wife, little mav kids, house and the white picket fence?

hey I think that's cool. If you're not ready...don't. But if you fall in love...don;t let her go if she feel sthe same as you.

You take care mav.

I've not ever put myself out on a dating sites. heheheh. No need to.

babes...i don;t want to sopund like i have a big ego, thoough I do...I'm cute as hell.

If I'm thirsty...I drink.

If I'm hungry...I eat.

If I want the guy...I take the guy. hehehe

I'm teasing you. I flirt and see where it take mes. :D

Paradox Philic said...

Well for some people it works i guess... One of mys sisters is a living example of that...

And some of us just become walking proofs of the failure rate of these sites .. yes i expect the profile to be at least grammatically correct ... yes yes i know i ask for too much.

I could write a book...wait a series on my experiences on these sites... (Some of them are infact posted on my site under "Amusement calling" series)...
But there is a silver lining in all this after all.... me and my readers do get a laugh or two at times from reading these unintentional humour providers.

maverick said...

@spiky...well no ..i aint looking at settling down as soon as of now...another 2-3 yrs to go for it...

well wud love to learn the flirting tricks from a master like u :)

maverick said...

@paradox philic...welcome to my blog...and i totally agree with u on the profile to be grammatically correct...sometimes it is jus a simple turn off :)

and yes many a times there is a lot of humour embedded into it :)

Vandita said...

i guess i consider it kinda absolute last resort... abhi bahut time hai :)

maverick said...

@vandita...lol...cool hai...

Sachi said...
