30 m ny/nj. US citizen. Moved as a teenager. INTJ. Single since I figured I’m not fighting the biological clock and have all the time in the world to meet someone and get settled. Things changed after I watched Akshay’s mom (Indian Matchmaking) tell him even 25 is too late and not marrying somehow messes up lives of people around him. While the show was staged, there might be truth to the latter part.
Looking for F in ny/nj. Personality: NOT Aparna. NOT Nadia but def more Nadia than Aparna.🙏
So, I was watching The Indian matchmaking show today (Netflix famous / infamous 😂)
Just wanted to know if you also binged it
I personally loved it as I enjoy of Reality Drama
and also got to know how different and difficult Indian society is.
If you haven't I will recommend it for all people in this bowl
Let me know who is your favourite
Mine is Vyasar
24M (I know not needed still if someone interested to discuss in DM 😉)
This Indian matchmaking show is interesting...love how the first girl is like “my partner needs to fit in my life” 😳🙄😳🙄🤭
Desi Consultants!! - who all are thinking of hiring Sima Taparia (after watching Indian matchmaking on Netflix) for finding your future significant other?
So...what did you non Indian ladies think of Indian Matchmaking on Netflix? 😀
Now you know why I’m single.
Watching the Indian Matchmaking on Netflix. Every other minute a guy or his parents are asking for "fair skin." 🤦
PS: I am not Indian and really don't want to offend anyone, but I think this is not a positive messaging for young girls.
Can anyone please put me in touch with that lady from Indian Matchmaking? Maybe you’ll see me in season 3
Why is everyone here so triggered by the White Tiger? That’s how the majority of India lives, please get outside your white collar bubbles. And stop saying “the media always shows poverty”, they also released shows like Bollywood Wives and Indian Matchmaking.
Didn’t know Indian matchmaking has become so progressive until I started watching this show. Just wow.
Thoughts/reviews on Indian Matchmaking?
Don't understand what people are loving about Indian Matchmaking
I do not find it hilarious and do not find Nadia adorable 🙄
So I’m late to the Indian Matchmaking series. Is it the guy who has to be wealthy and the women who need to come from wealth? There doesn’t seem to be a lot of emphasis on what the women do for a living, but the men all seem either well-off or getting called losers. Is that what people look for in real life too? So there’s no place for women on the come up to be with someone above their own social class?
Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
Anyone know what kind of downpayment I’d need to buy a house in Atlanta? Know markets crazy right now but our rent just went up 11% for our apartment lease to renew which has me thinking I need to stop renting probably by beginning of next year . Household income >$100k but currently a good bit of our monthly income is going to education expenses for my wife and I (will=$20k total and is our largest expense outside rent)
LOVE is 5x what we were at at the last earnings date. Could be an interesting target for puts

Any advice for an experienced HR professional with SHRM-SCP? I was downsized from my last job as a VP of Admin wanted to go with Coordinator/Assistant structure.

My ex reached out after 2 years and said he still has feelings for me. We dated for a few months and broke up because he moved (and wasn’t sure enough about us to want so LDR), then became friends and caught up every few months. He lost a beloved aunt this summer and said that made him re-evaluate his life. He said he would like to see where things go. He’s a wonderful person and I originally wanted to stay together when he moved but accepted his decision. Continued in commments

A colleague I worked with who was technically unskilled and not client facing copied my resume bullets word for word. I don’t think he even understands what he has copied, because he has listed (copied) project stakeholders our team interacted with before he joined the engagement. I’m no longer in the engagement, but while I was there, he would leech off of my work and try to somehow make it his own.

Is this a good idea? A searchable database of men who belong in the ‘men are trash’ category. This would be for men who are guilty of high crimes against women - STDs, violence, theft, being married, hiding kids, cheating.
There’s a platform where women can submit the name of the man that hurt them, evidence of the hurt and it can be verified and the names of the men will come up, the grievance that was verified but no details.

New to Fishbowl?
unlock all discussions on Fishbowl.
Arshneel is my fav, honestly Aparna is growing on me this season too
Nadia, Shital and Viral - boss women!
Aparna is the most entitled person I’ve seen on tv in a lot of time
Ya all desi people watching the show?
No I’m not and I’m all in with it!
theyre also my fav, so wholesome and down to earth. seems like theyd have a comforting presence
Arshneel is sweet but he seems a little indecisive. I like Viral (girl) and Aparna for the sass. Also Shital, she’s cute. I like Viral(the guy) too.
I just love the show all together! Such a nice wind down before bed.
Aparna would be a great rishta aunty
She knows the struggle
