Her open-minded daughter by not communicating her complete disapproval says that she liked him but did not find him like-minded.  on which her father gets confounded and calls the matrimonial site officer and pours the dilemma of his daughter by telling him that a few days back she was talking that people with opposite nature attract but now she is saying that like attracts like .on listening to the tensed father of a daughter, they consoled him by saying that it is a normal thing which happens while selecting the eligible boy for marriage. The advertisement ends here concluding with the lines that it is not easy to find the right match for the marriage but becomes easy when u are at so-called select Shaadi matrimony site.

Nobody knows what is actually cooking between the newlywed couple.

Although, such platforms are doing good in helping future compatible couples who are at distant places to meet but such sites are being misused by various dubious people who are using this platform for their evil the past, there were several instances where some people make their fake id, faking their elite backgrounds and qualifications thereby luring the bride’s family to accept their proposal then later on coming out to be evil-minded, seeking dowry. While some are into targeting innocent girls with their flamboyant personality description. As these matrimonial sites are available to public and are operating on a profit motive so anyone who is ready to pay the hefty membership fee is a part of it and also the intentions of the members who are joining cannot be correctly identified by these sites, so this poses the problem of authenticity of such matrimonial platforms.

The only thing that can be done is from the side of genuine life partner seekers, they have to be very cautious while selecting their future spouse on such platforms, they should not go with the flow and agree on each and every information provided by them.
