Online Dating Scenario in India📱❤️
I think online dating is one of the most interesting concepts of all the dating concepts in India. Our Indian society has always been frozen and confined, our social structure and norms are not really receptive to the concept of dating, even in bigger cities, but with time, the youth has now fully welcomed the dating culture. While in the past, there was a very limited sample size to choose from – friends, colleagues, family connections – now the options are virtually unlimited.
With the new ideas and concepts rolled out internationally, the Indian youth is changing too – they are a lot more open to casual meetings and online conversations with the probable date and are no longer interested in fishing for suitable profiles matched and approved by their parents. Finally, it looks like young Indians are ready to search for their own partners and settling upon their own terms.
More and more individuals are using dating apps in India as well as internationally. Even in conservative countries like ours, thanks to social apps like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, people are way more open-minded and progressive than before and readily accepting new avenues now available.
Popular dating apps like Tinder, Truly Madly, Woo, Happn and other online dating apps, has a budding market in India, driven by an increasingly tech-savvy, digital youth audience.
In the past, single Indians met potential dates primarily arranged by family, friends, or colleagues. Contrary, people now can increase their dating choices exponentially thanks to different dating apps. More importantly, they are accredited to take complete control of their actions and interactions all without going through the typical pressures and anxieties that come with meeting new people.
But, whether trying an online dating site or choosing the typical dating game and looking for love in the real world, we’ve put together a list of some of the pros and cons to online dating to help you decide which way might help you find “the one.” Let’s start with some pros of online dating in India.
Pros and Cons of Online Dating in India
You get access to more people
The best thing about these apps is they open the world for you, then why to restrict yourself to only a handful of people. Through these apps, you get an opportunity to meet more people and then choose the one you find suitable. If you work or live in an environment where there aren’t that many single people to meet, or if you don’t have a large social circle, then dating apps can be a great help to find a suitable partner.
You can match compatibility and personality
These apps allow you to list and specify what you are looking for in a person and will increase your chance to meet someone similar to yourself. Modern dating services provide a fully customized search of your partner based on your likes, age group, physical appearance, interests or beliefs. The system automatically picks candidates to choose from.
No buildups, only to the point conversation
In the real world, a lot of time goes in just getting a chance to meet someone you really like and starting it off. Mostly you are not open about your feelings until you are sure about the other person and it becomes a head-on task how to put up yourself to the person, However people on dating sites are open about what they are looking for and what’s important to them. This tends to remove a lot of anxieties which you might have in the initial stages of the relationship.
It’s a boon for introverts
For introverts and shy, who don’t like to say it all, dating apps work wonders. Here, you can speak volumes without saying a word in the form of your pictures, posts, and profile. You get enough time to put your thoughts and feelings to exact words and then share it with people without the pressure of having to correct yourself.
Now, you need to be aware of the flip side to all that goodness.
Difficult to choose
Due to the enormous number of matches, it can be a bit exhausting having to weed out the good from the bad. Some of them start flirting with dozens of users at the same time and some try to carefully pick the one and only person.
People often lie on their profiles
Unfortunately, users not always give exact information and lie on many occasions on their dating profile. Men users most commonly lie about age, height, and income, whereas female users lie about weight, physical build, and age. Hence, relying too much on dating apps is not always a good idea.
Don’t take it seriously
Again, there is a hell lot of difference in the virtual world and the real world. You may not find the same essence when it comes to in-person meetings. So, just relax and don’t take this online dating business too seriously.
Many times you come across strange people
Although, dating apps take many steps to ensure privacy and maintain an authentic database still many strange users misuse such platforms for fun. Some of them want to make their strange fantasies real and so on. Make sure you know your potential date quite well – initiate phone conversations and live video chats prior to asking this user out.
