Hello there! Like many others, I've finally been convinced by my parents to try out shaadi.com so here I am!
Ideally if a mutual interest arises it would be great to meet in person at some point and have real conversations, and I think this can happen most easily if we're in the same place (i.e. NY city area). That's by no means a rule, though.
I grew up all over India, and came to the US for undergrad at the age of 18. 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 11 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 2013 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 :)
Important things to me in a match:
- 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.
