These days online matrimonial search is on the rise and almost
every person in search of an ideal spouse posts his/her profile
on matrimonial websites. The recent advent of matrimonial sites
like Jeevansathi.com, Bharatmatrimony.com, Shaadi.com etc. have
brought into light online matrimony, which is now quite prevalent
among people seeking a prospective bride or groom. For all those
gearing up for marriage here are certain tips and etiquettes that
apply to online matrimonial search.
A first impression
is the last impression and that's exactly what your profile does.
A carefully created profile, free from silly mistakes can do wonders
for you. So, make a profile that is a smooth blend of your own and
your family's details.
and accurate demographic information like your age, marital
status, country and state of residence, ethnicity, religion
and so on. Also, never exaggerate about yourself as sooner
or later this will leave a negative impact on the person you
Matrimonial search in Indian context demands information about
education, qualification, family background, job profile and
work place. This is the most important information apart from
the demographics that one needs to provide while creating
a profile on a matrimonial website since any parent would
want these details before taking forward discussions with
a prospective bride or groom.
You can make an impressive
profile by giving instances of your likes and dislikes instead of
writing them directly. For example, instead of saying that you like
to read books you may give names of your favourite novels or if
you like music you may mention your favourite genres & music
composers. Always check your profile for spelling and grammatical
errors. On Jeevansathi.com there is a spell check feature that can
be used to rectify errors in your profile. For better results you
may also buy a service from Jeevansathi.com called 'Matri-Profile'
where experts will write profile for you. When it comes to selecting
search parameters for your desired life partner, you need to demarcate
your requirements as 'must' and 'desired'. You should try to go
only with the must requirements rather than the desired requirements
otherwise your search may not generate adequate results as the search
will only show what you have selected.
For example, your
must requirement is a Tamil bride between 23-27 of age and your
desired requirement is doctor, slim, beautiful and living in Chennai.
Then while doing a search on the site if you give only must requirements
and avoid desired requirements, your search results may show you
a lot more profiles that may be suitable for you.
an important role in internet matrimonial services because after
a member reads your profile, it is your style of communication,
which portrays your personality. Matrimonial websites offer three
types of communication- Initial contact through automated mail which
comes with free membership, Personalized e-mails & Chat which
come with paid membership.
You may express interest in someone by sending an automated initial
contact but to carry forward this interaction between you and that
person, you will need to exchange a few emails and also "Chat"
through a "Messenger" option. Although one needs to buy
a paid membership for sending personalised emails and chat requests,
at the same time it also adds a lot of seriousness and credibility
to your profile, marking you a serious seeker for a life partner.
Most matrimonial websites today offer free as well as paid memberships,
however, the benefits that one gets with paid memberships are unmatched
vis-a-vis free memberships. On one hand paid memberships allow you
to send personalized messages and send chat requests, free memberships
on the other allow you to send only automated initial contact. Beware
of fraudulent profiles. If you come across any profile that is very
impressive and looks too good to be true, you need to be extra cautious
towards it. Even if profile screening is being done to filter out
fake profiles by the website executives, people with wrong intentions
can bypass such safety measures.
It's generally better to know each other through email or chat first
and disclose your complete contact details only when you feel that
the member is credible. On a matrimonial website you need to consider
that you are here for matrimony and not dating. You must realise
that people join these avenues in search of long term relationships
where family and parents enter the scenario very early, in fact
most of the times it is a family member who creates the profile
on the website on behalf of the marriageable person.
Saying 'No' is very important. Don't delay in declining initial
contacts of members you don't like because saying no is better than
saying nothing. Incase you find the member unsuitable after exchanging
a few mails even then you may refuse politely. Search for a life
partner is the most difficult task and the internet has definitely
simplified this task for us. Online matrimonial search is a very
quick and a hassle free option when compared with other offline
practices. It gives you the freedom to choose from thousands of
profiles at a click of the mouse and know prospective brides and
grooms at a personal level.
but at the same time,
this also has its own demerits just like any other source. Hence,
for all those marriage seekers out there, Jeevansathi.com wishes
you a safe, secure and a successful online matrimonial search.
