We like:

Shaadi Matrimonial is a well designed, easy to use website that is extremely user-friendly.

You can search for suitable profiles in your area before you sign up.

You can choose your level of privacy (determining who can see your profile and picture).

There are lots of members over 40, 50 and 60.

Shaadi com offer an unconditional guarantee. If you don’t have at least one accepted member (they contacted you and you responded positively, or vice versa) in the first month, they’ll refund your membership fee.

If you’re serious about marriage, this giant among Indian matrimonial sites is a good resource.

We don’t like:

Their policy on membership renewal (whether it’s automatic or not) could be clearer. But that’s not really a biggie. Otherwise, this Asian matchmaker service is a good choice.

Were the hands a wee bit too much for a first date?

After due consideration, Parveen decided to go for it.
