Speed dating questions for girls
A quick note about arranged marriages in South Asian Muslim culture: They’re not forced, “blind”, or mandatory, especially not in 2012 New York.Gone are the days when girls would strut in front of a man’s family, serve chai, and share a special talent to impress her possible in-laws. Wow, we have so much in common…) ———- Am I the only one who’s a liiiittle sick of all the small talk that is requisite in dating? Last week I read an article in the NY Times about a woman who, with a man she was on a first date with, decided to try to fall in love by going through a list of tested questions that get supposedly progressively more probing and exposing.This normally, or ideally, happens gradually over time but in this case, it is given a catalyst – structure that helps it happen in a more accelerated way.We send out weekly invitations via email every Sunday or Monday with details of our upcoming Speed Dating Events.Sounds interesting, but I’m nervous about going by myself – what if I’m a bit shy?Professional matchmakers and house visits still exist, but the internet has made it easier for men, women, and (of course) their parents to cast a wide net and connect with people from all over the country who share their values and interests.
As I read them I was reminded of a book I was given when I was in a promising relationship called The Hard Questions: 100 Questions to Ask Before You Say “I Do.” by Susan Piver. I found that it spoke to me almost perfectly as she voiced the different concerns she personally had that brought her to discuss very real, often difficult, questions with the man she loves before she felt ready to marry him.That’s all great because I truly believe that a major issue in dating is the objectification of the other – forgetting that they are, in fact, completely human, just as you are.And so any attempt to help us remember that, no matter if we decided to go on another date with them or not, is welcome in my books. When I started reading through the questions, I didn’t like them.We are not running our GIRLS 38-49: GUYS 40-54 age grouping anymore.
