I'm not slim, trim and educated so she wouldn't want me 😂

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 😂

I don’t want to “adjust”.

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.

I’m not tall enough :(

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.

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.🙏

My firm recently removed the CPA requirement to make manager in FDD stating that it is following the market. Being a CPA is definitely better than not being one but will it hurt my exit opportunities if I decide to not pursue my license? Do companies outside of public accounting even care that much about having your license / are others seeing this same trend?
