However, for most, dating someone generally means an interview for marriage.
So, if you do just want to date someone without the pressure of committing to marriage how do you go about it?
If you tell him you just want to date without an expectation of commitment, be honest with him about what that means to you.
Does it mean you want the relationship to be a physical one?
It is a way to discover different people and to see what you do and do not prefer in a mate.
Over here though, society still considers marriage to be the main goal for Indian women.
Of course perhaps they are just not that into me, but it certainly doesn’t seem that way; it just feels like they are not comfortable with the idea of dating a woman without an expectation that it may lead to marriage.
Whilst lines are blurring, with the youth having more freedom to go out and spend time with friends, there is more opportunity for romance without immediate commitment.Online dating in India is a relatively new concept, with most online forums being used primarily as a means for arranging marriages or sex.However, there are some sites that have been created with the specific purpose of dating including Two Mangoes.com, or floh.in, which introduce like-minded people without specific expectations.However it is not just women who are bound by these stereotypes.One of my male friends explained to me that he doesn’t feel that he could just date someone, and even at the first meeting he finds himself assessing whether he would be happy to be sitting across the table from this woman in three years time with a child.If you have no one in mind how do you go about meeting like-minded people?
