As time goes on, my parents will surely become more open and accepting of new age dating, but will no doubt be set in their ways and I wouldn’t change them for the world.
For me, I would want to marry someone who is of the same caste and religion as it makes for an easier life but also because I don’t want my culture to die out.
As a young Sikh, dating in the modern age can be tricky when you come from a family of traditional values.
How do you uphold your cultural beliefs and try to date at the same time?
In Indian culture we do have a hierarchal caste system, which is still prominent to this day, and while it’s true that there are Indian families who adopt a modern view on dating, my family fall into the old school category …which is where, for me, modern dating gets complicated.
We also maintain a hign standard with the users that join our site.
Nowadays, it’s more of a dating pool approved by your family.
My parents have modernised a bit and would want to me to date before I committed any further but saying that, the pressure is still there to move faster rather then slower.
Also, if I don’t follow my religion to the book, why should I have to marry someone from it?
It should be about someone’s personality and the chemistry you have with them.
