Hot Indian Girls in a Modern World
Indian girls are naturally quite beautiful with dark complexions and a history of deep sexual and religious roots. When people ponder Indian women they tend to think of them as highly conservative. But remember, the Karma Sutra, literately the bible on sex for the last several thousand years, originates from India.
One nice thing about dating Indian women today is that most urban women are modern and cosmopolitan. This is important because it means that the cultural differences are a lot easier to negotiate between Western men and Indian women than they used to be.
The cultural differences are small and fading fast.
A prominent Indian film director recently commented that the cultural differences were disappearing because...
We want their films, their cars, their planes, their diet cokes and also their attitude. The American way of life is creeping into our culture.
There is certainly a downside to this global homogenization, but it does make it easier to establish a relationship with a beautiful Indian woman. It also makes it easier to communicate with her and travel to see her.
Indian culture tends to be much more conservative than western culture. It's important to know when talking about dating Indian people, and Indian culture, that it varies so widely depending on where you are.
Arranged and love based marriages both exist in India. In the case of arranged marriages, the parents usually get together, then the children either say yes or no, and then the dating begins. In the case of love based marriages, first the daughter talks to her mother, then her mother talks to her father.
Some traditional Indian cultures look down on divorce, and usually even a widowed woman may have a very difficult, if not impossible time finding a second husband. For these reasons, usually Indian people tend to stay together once married.
There is a marked difference between western and Indian culture when it comes to romance. Western people tend to see dating as a process of trial and error while looking for the right person. India girls date in hopes of finding the right person that will ultimately want to marry her.
This is just not going to happen in India. Dating is not normal in India, with most of whether or not a girl will date depending on her family. With any Indian woman you are interested in, it will be very valuable if you get to know her family and culture. Then you will know what you can and cannot do in their culture.
Dowries are also common with the bride's father giving presents to the groom's family, even though this practice is illegal.
Indian Brides ' Love vs. Tradition
It's important to understand how an Indian relationship works, and how it differs from the western relationship ' so you can understand and thrive in your relationship. Indian people have a culture of extreme devotion, love and affection towards their partners. In that they treat their partners as an extension of themselves.
As such, they are willing to sacrifice for their partner's well-being. Ultimately an Indian marriage or relationship is a partnership of love and caring. Respect and kindness towards each other are important values that should always be kept in any relationship.
It's important to remember that 9 out of 10 marriages in India are arranged, so the best way to get into a long term relationship with a girl you like is to get on her parents good side. Generally there is no wooing or meeting before the marriage, however there is an exception if you are a foreigner looking to meet an Indian woman, in which case meeting online is usually the easiest way to get the ball rolling.
Within India parents and relatives have a lot of say over a woman and her relationship. Often it will be the parents themselves who post ads online looking for a suitable match for their daughter. Generally courtship is not encouraged, and the idea of dating multiple people is undesirable to Indians.
It's important to remember that in Indian culture the families' interests are seen as more important than the happiness of the couple. So they will often push for a girl to marry more than they will worry about her romance with the man she is marrying.
In India the central idea is that it's what a couple does together during their marriage ' not how they meet, which determines the happiness of their union.
However, it is becoming increasingly common for people to date in India without alerting their parents to what is going on. This allows the young people to get to know each other without the risks of parental involvement. This is especially true of Indians abroad or dating abroad, where Indian people will often adopt the customs of whatever country they are in ' and dramatically reducing the influence the family has over the marriage.
Increased affluence has also reduced the appeal of arranged marriages and it is becoming more and more common for people to focus on love based marriages.
Subsets of Indian Dating
There are tons of hot India girls, because India is the seventh-largest country in the world by land area, and the second-most populous, and, as Indian newspapers constantly remind you, the most populous democracy in the world.
Because India is such a gigantic country, there are many different cultures and religions that you should be aware of if you intend to date Indian women. Here are a few of the more common subsets of Indian Dating:
If you are looking to date someone who is Hindu you should also be Hindu. Traditionally in India people date from the same caste and religion. You can also be of a higher caste and date into a lower caste, though it's questionable if your family will approve of this (if they are Indian).
Any modern Hindu girl has been raised under a culture that doesn't accept dating. While it is not an impossible feat, it is difficult. It also depends on where you are, for example if you are in a major city it is going to be a lot easier than being in a small village.
Hindu girls are traditionally going to avoid you, as they have been raised to avoid men until they are married. In order to meet one, it's advised that you start slowly and build. You can begin with simple conversation and move forward by talking about Hinduism.
You should also know that if you date as a Hindu before marriage, and are discovered by a priest, they may attempt to force you into a marriage. This is only very conservative Hindu groups who have made such threats and in major cities it may be less of an issue.
Tamils can be found around the world in Canada, America, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and of course, India. If you want to date a Tamil, going online can be an effective and successful way to meet someone of the same culture as you.
Respect her culture and traditions if you were raised abroad. Understand that she will have different boundaries than a western woman and those need to be acknowledged and respected if you are going to win her heart.
Show her chivalry and respect. Traditional Indian culture places great emphasis on treating women well and you can win her heart by showing respect to her, and getting on her families good side.
