For a while it seemed as if the dating sites were the ideal platform for them. It's a poser that's been troubling dating sites, too.Sites such as trulymadly, aisle.co, matchmecupid and i Bluebottle are gathering eyeballs and log-ins, but they realise that many women clients are not happy.
She, on the other hand, wants a long-term relationship.
"Most guys on dating apps want to 'hook up' or 'date without an agenda'," Saboo holds.
She frequents the local theatre regularly, tries out all the new restaurants and travels whenever she gets a chance. She has tried out the dating sites that promise to bring men and women together.
But she's found that the men on the sites just want to have fun.
We are 10 years away from dating in the true sense," agrees Akhilesh Sharma, an investment banker and co-founder of i Bluebottle, which is positioned somewhere between being a matrimonial and dating site.
So, in a new trend, dating apps and sites are turning "woman centric" and adding dollops of stringent entry levels and safety features.But the biggest problem is the thought of being paired up with a "creep".Married men lurk as bachelors in a bid to bed unsuspecting women.The second problem, women say, is the attitude of many of the men on the sites."Some guys question me on why I am still single at 31," says Mandira (name changed), a BTech and MBA graduate who works as a business planner for a telecom major in Chennai."We do not want to encourage people who want to sleep around," Kapoor says. Users specify what they are looking for, and the site looks for other users with similar likes and dislikes - finding just the right partner for a road trip zealot, for instance, or an SRK lover.
