Hello there! Like many others, I've finally been convinced by my parents to try out shaadi.com so here I am!
A quick note before I go any further: like many others, I'm most interested in meeting someone who lives and works in the same city/ metropolitan area as me (in my case, the New York City area). The most important reason is because I would like to meet in person and get to know a potential match, and vice versa of course, and I think this can happen most easily if we're in the same place. While that's not a rule, please keep that in mind.
I grew up all over India, and came to the US for college. I studied Economics, worked in Consulting (Bain & Co.) for a couple of years in Chicago, and then NYU for grad school. I've been here ever since and have started to feel at home in Brooklyn. I'm lucky to be working in a job that I actually enjoy (product strategy).
Been in the US for 10 years now, have a circle of good friends in the city from college, work, and everything in between. I really enjoy food and naps, which I try to balance with working out -- in August I took up Thai kickboxing, which is quite fun. I read a lot, and am often content with a quiet night of ordering food in and Netflix (I will hanker after some social time after a few weeks of that though!). I enjoy exploring less well-known venues for nights out -- I'm more a quiet neighborhood place person than someone who enjoys clubbing or lounges.
In terms of values, I'm pretty liberal but with a traditional core -- I value family ties, closeness with parents and siblings (I'm very close to my older brother), and dedication in marriage.
Needless to say, my parents and grandmothers all believe I'm incredibly good-looking, well-dressed, eloquent, smart, funny, and generally a superb specimen of humanity, so there's always that resounding (and completely objective) vote of confidence :)
The most important thing to me in a match is that we must have chemistry! That spark that sometimes flies between people.
- Being able to make each other laugh (ie sense of humor)
- Being close to your family -- I am very close to mine
- Have career goals (at least the germs of them! I know it's tough to know exactly what one wants to do in life)
- Enjoying reading and knowledge for its own sake
- Being international in terms of outlook, circle of friends, interests
Please don't read that and consider it some kind of requirements list! Really the most important thing is that we feel right for each other.
