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).
If they are allowed to date they are generally only allowed to date other Indians who either are family friends, same last name, same village, same religion, or some type of doctor.
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.
Although India has experienced changes in its traditions in part due to Western influences, the culture has held steadfast to many of its traditions and customs.
What applies to one region of India may not apply to another region.
However, dating in India is for the purpose of "getting to know" your future husband.
One of the reasons the notion of dating is still foreign to the Indian people, is because it implies mental and (quite possible) physical contact with many people of the opposite sex.
What beliefs do his parent's hold for him regarding marriage and family?
This will help you determine what the likelihood of him dating is as well as what limits he may have for any long-term relationship.
Using an Indian dating website will greatly expand your options regardless of how you choose to find your mate.
However Indians choose to meet, date and marry, one thing is clear.
When talking amongst couples and family in India, you should be genuine, respectful and willing to accommodate their family's values, customs and traditions.
