Searching and Matching Profiles
  1. How can I search for Profiles on Shaadi.com? What are the search options available?
    To search for Profiles on Shaadi.com, you can use any of the following options: 
    • Basic Search allows you to search for Profiles as per basic criteria like age, height, marital status, religion, location, etc.

    • Additionally, you can also use Profile ID search to locate particular Members on Shaadi.com.
  2. In what order are my search results listed?
    Search results are shown by default using a custom algorithm developed by Shaadi.com. This is used to maximise responses to your Profile. You can also sort the results by ‘Newest First’ and ‘Last Logged in First’.
  3. In the search results I can see some small icons next to some of the Profiles. What do those icons mean?
    Shaadi.com uses different icons to denote the status of Profile information, e.g. whether Phone number is verified or not, whether horoscope is added or not, etc.
  4. What is the Matches feature? How does it work?

    Based on your Profile and Partner Preferences, Shaadi.com shows you a list of Profiles under your Matches list.

    Preferred Matches: These are Members who exactly match your Partner Preferences

    Broader Matches: These are Members who match some of your Partner Preferences and are slightly outside some of your other Preferences.

    Reverse Matches: These Members have set Partner Preferences that match your Profile information.

    2-way Matches: Both of you match each others Partner Preferences.
  5. Can I shortlist Profiles that I like on Shaadi.com?

    If you like a Member’s Profile, we recommend that you contact the Member immediately by Expressing Interest. In case you want to decide later, you can add these Members to a ‘Shortlist’. You can revisit these Profiles by visiting the Shortlists page and decide to Express Interest later.

    You can create upto 10 Shortlists. You can also add the same Profile to multiple Shortlists that you have created.
  6. Can I get a list of Members who have visited my Profile?
    Yes. Click here to see a list of Members who have recently viewed your Profile.
  7. What does the Ignore feature do? How is this useful?

    While searching you may come across Profiles that you may not want to consider in your Partner Search. You can Ignore such Profiles we will ensure that these Profiles will not shown again to you on Shaadi.com.

    By Ignoring irrelevant Profiles, you will be improving our algorithm that shows you Matches / Search Results. If you change your mind, you can access these Profiles from the Ignored Members list and Express Interest in them.
