Finding the ideal partner is what most movies or songs are made of. But changing lifestyles have made bumping into the love of your life a little far-fetched. Being cooped up in an office or attending back to back meetings have made people busier. This means they hardly have any time to spare for a social or romantic life.
Thanks to the internet, online matchmaking has come to the forefront. More people are opting for it. And why wouldn’t they? It is a great way to meet someone new based on your preferences. However, that does not mean that traditional matchmaking has vanished, it still has a stronghold in the country. But here is why matchmaking sites are the way to go:
1. Many profiles to browse through
Online matchmaking can open up a plethora of choices for you. Millions of people sign up on this platform to connect with someone and find a companion. This means you have a lot of options to sift through. You may not have to hear the infamous line of asking you to compromise on your choice of partner due to lack of options. There are people signing up on matchmaking sites every other day, more so during the lockdown.
2. You can set your preferences
Whenever you hear about a proposal through traditional matchmaking, you have to do quite a bit of inquiries on the person’s background like what they do, where they work, stay, etc. On the online version, you can set your preference of community and profession. You will then receive matches based on the options you have chosen without having to ask a million questions. Of course, there is background checking to do here as well, but not as extensive.
3. Perfect for busy bees
You see pictures of your peers getting married, listen to their romantic fairy tale stories and it may make you wonder if you could have one of your own. Through the matrimony sites you can connect with a potential partner on the go. Talk to them any number of times and eventually create your own special story that you can share with the world someday.
4. Beyond boundaries
Whether you are looking for someone in your town or in another city or even in another country, you can do that with ease. There are no geographical boundaries when it comes to online matchmaking. You can connect with anyone in the world and find the perfect partner with just a click of a button. There have been many people who have been successful in finding international connections through these platforms, easily.
5. Easy to communicate
You can easily communicate with the match through online chat or video chatting. Since the lockdown, many matchmaking platforms have evolved with the times and installed video chatting features on their apps. This has made it easier for couples to connect despite the physical distances. It feels like talking to someone in person so the connecting feels real too. Many of these connections have turned into full-fledged marriage plans.
6. Happy parents
The country has progressed, at least it is true of urban India, but you still hope that your parents would be happy about your match. It is only a biological need for your parents to be part of your happiness. When you tell them that you have met someone through common friends or at work, they might be a little sceptical. But the moment you tell them you have found them through online matchmaking, they may not ask too many questions and tend to give their blessings a lot quicker. Parent logic! But aren’t you happy if they are too?
Trends show that online matchmaking is on the rise and is bound to increase still more. It has worked wonderfully for many so you could also try it out. For all you know, you might have a meet-cute on a digital platform too.
