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,, 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.

Profile Etiquettes

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.


Mention true 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 contact.

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 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 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.

Communication Etiquettes:

Communication plays 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, wishes you a safe, secure and a successful online matrimonial search.
