As a young Sikh, dating in the modern age can be tricky when you come from a family of traditional values.
How do you uphold your cultural beliefs and try to date at the same time?
But saying that, if I did unexpectedly find The One then I may have to consider something different.
If you’re a single British Indian looking for like-minded men or women of Indian descent, e Harmony is a great place to start.
Another option is dating sites, where a couple (like Shaadi) even go as far as segregating the search into different castes as opposed to other dating sites giving the option of race.
Sikhs have divided into castes from birth, which relate to which jobs we did in India back in the day.
My friend has an interesting opinion on the matter: “My mum would prefer if I got married to a Sikh, and I would want to marry a Sikh but I don’t care what caste.We’re a free online dating site that specialises in helping people find meaningful, long-lasting relationships that, in many cases, lead to marriage.Thanks to our unique Relationship Questionnaire, e Harmony ensures that you’ll be paired with Indian singles who share more than just your heritage; our matches are based on 29 dimensions of compatibility, so you’ll be one-step closer to connecting with someone who is completely right for you.Only now that I am happily married do I understand why my parents were so keen on me marrying a Sikh.Everything just clicked into place, he got me like no one else could”.
