He’s Wait­ing...

Cosmopolitan (India) - - LOVE & LUST -

ON A DAT­ING WEB­SITE: Think online dat­ing is for the des­per­ate/ weird? Read this: over one-third of UK and US mar­riages be­gin online, found a new study. In In­dia, too, many are find­ing that In­ter­net dat­ing may be the to­day way to find Mr Right, and web­sites like shaadi.com and jee­vansathi.com are pop­u­lar faves. Anamika Mishra, 27, is a Delhi-based graphic de­signer who met Ak­shat Kapoor on a mat­ri­mo­nial site. “I had to get past this no­tion that ‘online love’ is for un-cool peo­ple. I also re­alised that so-called mat­ri­mo­nial sites are not just ve­hi­cles for ar­ranged mar­riages. In fact, most ac­counts are set up by guys them­selves. Ak­shat and I dated for a year be­fore get­ting en­gaged last month.” Okay, now for the warn­ings: watch out for fake pro­files, usu­ally typ­i­fied by tall claims. And be­gin with phone calls be­fore you meet. When that does hap­pen, meet in a pub­lic place for the first date.
