Yes, a few decades back, the very mention of dating used to bring a scowl on faces but now Indians have embraced this western trend to quite an extent. More than 60% of the marriages in India are “arranged” by the families of couples and have evolved as strong bonds both beautiful and bountiful. Once you find a guy (through friends, colleagues or from the virtual world) it’s always safe and good to know each other through texting.
Here “arranged” means, prospective matches are found on the basis on a horoscope, family background, family finances, caste, creed and language. It’s an activity that could pamper you with the pleasure of meeting the finest people of the opposite sex; eventually sprouting the hope for a romantic relationship with ‘the chosen one’. Exchanging mails, phone numbers or even chatting online is the way to go. Get your facts on Bollywood right, especially with the latest musical and theatrical releases.
Doing something special is a good way to get into his good books.

Just make sure you aren’t cluttering his inbox with too many messages (in case if he is too cute or hot) for that would show a desperate side of yours and he may lose interest in you. It could be probably be a test of your patience and perseverance. If asked who your favorite actor is, pick a name from the Khans or the Kapoors for names like Meryl Streep or Robert Downey Jr could make him ‘zone out’.
Dating is a game where you have to make sure the ball is in your court. Bollywood gossip, movie reviews and music releases could lead to interesting fun filled conservations during the wee hours of the night.
