Looking for real relationship advice that relates to to who you are? We were too. Jasbina has the know-how and cultural sensitivity that has made her the foremost source for commitment-minded singles looking to get hitched. Question I am 34 and have been single for way too long. I usually have an easy time making friends, so of course, when I am not romantically interested in someone, that person ends up liking me. However, if you are concerned about your dating patterns, then these issues are definitely worth exploring. The giddiness in the beginning of a relationship, where everything is new and you get butterflies in your stomach every time you see that special person, can be attributed to feeling unsure of how things are going.

I think eHarmony does a way better job at matching, and it costs pennies when compared to Intersections Match. In my experience, some of the men I was introduced to were not paying members, thus difference of vested interest. One said she had approached him at a mixer and a year later, out of the blue, he heard from her with intentions to introduce me; he spoke negatively about her service and business concept in general — he was not a believer. And then there was one introduction where the only commonality was that we were both of Indian decent and looking for a life partner.
As such, ample time could not have been permitted to modify search criteria in order to truly provide customized matchmaking service, in my opinion. From the time I signed the contract, in an exact 2-month span, Intersections Match completed five introductions. Time lapsed far too quickly to foresee such poor outcome.
Hmmm, quality vs. No brainer, right? Any reputable business that I know listens to their clients and considers their feedback to enhance their services, especially high-end service providers.
Jasbina Ahluwalia got a master’s degree in philosophy, went to law school, and then seven years into a successful law career, she changed course — to become a professional matchmaker. If you’re envisioning a meddlesome aunt or that nightmarish matchmaker in “Mulan,” think again: Ahluwalia is 39, a mom to 1-year-old twins and someone who prefers sweats to tailored suits. It was her own search for a spouse in her mids that led Ahluwalia to realize there was a need for a professional matchmaking service for South Asians.
Ahluwalia discovered that a generation of Indian youth were definitely not interested in the arranged marriage path of their parents but needed help as they embarked on an uncharted trek — one that had them dating like their American peers but with someone guiding them toward an eventual match. So Ahluwalia stepped in with her Intersections Matchmaking agency, singles mixers, a blog radio program and an army of matchmakers — she calls them scouts — spread across the country to keep their eyes wide open for that perfect pairing.

Sometimes people need a little help finding that special someone. Ahluwalia is the founder of Intersections Match, a professional matchmaking service that connects singles of all ethnicities with a specialization in those of South Asian backgrounds throughout the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

Based on criteria they provide, clients are matched with ostensibly compatible dates, but they soon find that the goal of marriage is more difficult to attain that they had hoped — even with a matchmaker who consults biological data profiles, astrologers and face readers.

Indians Are Not A Monolith. Indians living in India approach marriage and dating differently than Indians living in the U. And Indians who have emigrated to the U. The point is: there is no unilateral approach. Manisha Dass also notes the diversity.

Vision of partnership — reflecting temperament, values and mindset — can vary considerably even among sibling, warranting different approaches to finding a life partner. Empowerment is the mantra in my matchmaking work when it comes to choosing a life partner, including the timing of when to do so. While our approaches differ, we echo the aspiration Auntie Sima articulates in Episode 8 — we both strive to help people create the best lives for themselves.
How do our approaches differ? I used to think that finding a life partner is something that would just happen. However, turning 30, I was starting to feel the pressure — from my family and from myself. I decided that I would start dating with the hope of eventually finding a life partner. In my initial consultation with Jasbina I found her questions to be thorough and detailed, leading me to think about myself in ways I had not thought of before.
My husband makes me immensely happy, and completes me in so many ways. Each day I am so grateful to have him in my life.
