Before the dotcom era matchmaking was done through relatives or middlemen who would generally carry photographs & biodatas of prospective matches. The middlemen literally knew everyone in the community thanks to their strong social network. Matchmaking has evolved over the years, today men & women set preferences before their parents when they decide to tie the knot and mostly have the ultimate say in whom they choose. At times, our parents are slow adopters to technology and when it comes to the world of internet, they have a lot of apprehensions. So here are 4 reasons to help you convince your mom, why finding a match online is the best thing you can do!
