Cultural differences dating indian
A big factor as to whether he will date is his parent's opinions, beliefs, and tolerance.If you are interested in dating an Indian man, I would suggest that you try to learn about his family and culture as this will give you an idea of his beliefs about marriage and family.I never thought that the cultural background of a dating prospect would make much of a difference when it came to relationships.However, since living in New York, I’ve had the opportunity to meet many different people from various backgrounds and it’s become clear that there are definite cultural norms specific to European men versus American men (especially New Yorkers).Indian parents are very, very strict about who their children are allowed to hang around with or date.In a lot of cases they aren't even allowed to date at all (this usually pertains to girls).However, in Western society, we also are free to choose our dating partners.
For many parents the disproval rests on the fear that the values and traditions of a mixed relationship will negate the passing down of religious and cultural values as well as traditions for future generations and as a result would end that legacy.
Many Indian parents and Indian society don't believe in a "trial and error" approach to love. Indian men are more likely to date outside of India than those living in India.
Since dating is not a customary practice in India, you may discover that Indian men are not as savvy in the dating practices as those cultures where dating in encouraged.
Some Indian men will date a single parent and some won't date a woman who is a single parent.
This holds true for dating outside of the Indian culture.
