She’s very judgemental! I doubt she’d take me in w/o sending me to a therapy first

She is a true consultant! Makes these arbitrary matches and leaves. If it works out, she did an awesome match, if not, the stars were not aligned. Pretty convenient 😂

Let’s be honest ...none of her matches worked out, so I would fire her, but the show has made me more curious about looking into a matchmaker.

She is a 57 year old woman with the mindset of a 77 year old man. I would say that times are changing, but that way already true in the 90s.

I'm surprised that people are offended by the show. This is the reality of this show. I'm Desi, but not indian. All Desi parents want the same thing, from my experience. Also we have to understand that many people have preferences. We shouldn't get mad at other people's preferences. To each his/her own. Sima auntie reminds me of every Auntie. My parents share similar views.

D3, almost all dating sites have race and height filters. Also if you want to socialize within DT, romance can happen at ABRG meetings.

I need to get something off my chest. I am in a senior role in the company, mother and extreme professional. This senior partner one days calls me comment on my dressing sense that I need to dress more professional and appropriate. I am shocked and stunned. I am in my mid 30s, mother and professional. I never ever dress inappropriately. I asked him I don't understand the context here. A guy would have never received this kind of call. He goes "yes, there are double standards in the society for a women". Are you kidding me! Oh and by the way he couldn't notice I was working until midnight everyday to make the project successful. Give me your reactions please!!:)

Fellow 🐠 and 🦈, need advice/witty response ideas to the questions: 1. Are you going through the same thing as what was shown in Indian matchmaking? 2. Why don’t you hire sima aunty to help you? F**k Indian matchmaking!

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.

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.🙏

MBB folks, what’s the glamour with FAANG to you? I ask because I have done multiple strategy projects for/with FAANG, and could likely get an offer, but I still want MBB 🤨 Am I missing something?
