Event FAQ

Question: Do you have an online profile like other matrimonial sites?

No, our model is different we encourage people to meet face to face and make the decision to get married

Q: Will there be different groups formed in these meets based on any criteria?

No, We will not discriminate based on ANY criteria. However, due to requests from attendees and the community, we will separate the attendees into different groups based on age, in the interest of not overwhelming attendees. The person attending should be eligible to attend with confirmed registration.

Q: What does it cost to attend an event?

The events are sponsored by donors from the Hindu community or local chapter volunteers, hence they are completely free of charge to all its attendees. If you want to support please contact the local chapter coordinator for more information.

Q: Can I bring a non-participating Chaperone/friend or sibling along?

Yes, only if you absolutely need a person to come along with you. Please note that they will not be allowed to enter the main event hall.  They will have to wait in the lounge area IF available outside of the main event.

Q: What is the format of the meet?

The attendees will be given a unique Identification Number, and could then be divided into various age groups (depending on the spread of the ages of attendees). They will then meet every person of the opposite gender in their group for 2-4 minutes. This will be prefaced or followed by, approximately an hour long social over refreshments. Before exiting, each attendee will indicate who they wish to follow up with by informing us of that person’s Identification Number. If there is a match from both sides, we will forward each other’s contact information to that pair, after which they are on their own to pursue and explore a match on their own terms. It works better for all involved if attendees do not exchange each other’s contact information during the event.
