By Natasha Fatah November 28, For members of traditional South Asian communities, marriage—in Hindi and Urdu, shaadi —is the single most important event in life. To help unmarried South Asians find a suitable partner, Anupam Mittal, a Mumbai entrepreneur, launched the dating website shaadi. Like Lavalife, match. But Shaadi bills itself as a site for people who want to marry, not a hangout for promiscuous daters, and it requires that its members indicate skin complexion and religion and caste—decidedly old-fashioned ideas that have created something of an image problem.

Many of its members deny they use it out of embarrassment. Justin Thomas, 31, freelance software developer and mother Valsa Thomas, 57, oncology nurse. My parents ed me up to Shaadi a year ago. They set up my profile and described me as a kind-hearted person, working in Toronto, born and raised in Canada, South asian dating sites toronto good family values, well-liked by everyone and known to be very down-to-earth. My parents are new to computers, so the fact that they got it done by themselves is impressive. They set up my profile with theirlooked through the available women, received requests from some girls and forwarded the ones they liked.

At first, I rejected everyone they sent my way because they had only selected girls who are in India.

Other parents bug their children, too—they just do it in a different way. My husband, Abu, and I ed Justin up because he was then 30 years old and I want him to get married. We want someone suitable for him, but ultimately who he marries is his choice. I met my husband through my parents, who arranged my marriage.

In India, at the time, we were not supposed to go out and date. Once you finished your education, you were ready to get married. The proposal would come from the family. I see Shaadi as the modern version of that. On Shaadi, I can pick who I want to date. The site also requires that you describe your religion. I had one horrible experience on Shaadi. I thought that was just a security measure, but because the privacy settings are so difficult to navigate, without my realizing it my phone was posted on my profile.

The women who broke free of the caste system did it in their 20s, in university, and I missed the boat with them. The women who abide by the caste system and remain single are often controlled by parents who would feel shame if their daughter South asian dating sites toronto someone of a lower or even a different group. This year, I almost got married to someone I met on Shaadi. She was attractive, we had great chemistry, and we laughed a lot.

We communicated every day by sending texts and instant messages. One time we had a conversation for five hours via text.

I first connected with her in January. In February I went to Malaysia to meet her and her family. She decided to come to Canada to see if the relationship could work and arrived in mid-April with her mother. After a week we started talking about a wedding: they wanted the wedding to be in Kuala Lumpur, and my mom wanted it in Toronto. That was the first conflict. Then my dad made a comment about financial assets, which they interpreted as a request for dowry.

She and her mother went back to Malaysia, and we tried to salvage the relationship, but by the end of May it was pretty much over. She told me that she wanted to marry me, but her whole family was against it. After the pain was gone, I was able to appreciate that she had a lot to fear. Every day I make sure that my information is up to date, check out what other people are doing, new pictures of myself.

And every single day I do a search to see who is new on the site. My approach is to go out there full force, not half-assed. When I first ed Shaadi it was very important to me to find someone who is also Marathi and Hindu. On Shaadi, I met the perfect Marathi guy.

Our first meeting was at a Starbucks on Front Street near Church. He was tall, fair skinned, a bit geeky. Because he was Marathi, the stakes were higher, so I was a bit more nervous than usual. Because of the Marathi connection, we discussed India, travelling there, where our families were from. We went out a few more times, but in the end he made it clear that he wanted someone from India. He felt that I was too independent, too confident and too passionate about my career; he wanted someone who would stay home and take care of the.

Any vehicle that assists people to meet people is a good thing.

Welcome to the 21st Century of communications. In adopting such a closed mindset, you may be missing out on someone really special. Shaadi is a great site to cast a wider net during your quest to find that special someone. There is an industry in India for these services for a good reason. And if people get offended take that as a — they probably have something to hide. The clean families will appreciate you taking control of this life-changing decision.

I know this seems like common sense but when emotions are at play none of this will matter. I say this from experience — Canada is a generous country and the world knows it.

My shaadi-initiated marriage lasted only till the day the guy got his PR status. Oh and the dowry claims that started after the marriage are another story. Guess who will pay legal fees — you! And they get to live to welfare and legal aid will pay for their legal fees. Lastly, Good Luck and I really pray and hope no one goes through what I did. Perhaps some of these folks are having trouble finding love because they are obsessed with things like skin shade?

I think online connections, arranged marriage etc. This is very useful information shared here.

I am really thankful for this. Very useful information. Thank you for sharing it. Thanks 99th. I feel the parents ruined it for you. Keep out the parents — my advise.
