Mating Matches

This was an interesting musing for me this weekend. A large population of the associates I work with are from India where the practice of arranged marriage is still very common. A woman in our company was commenting on how awful that must be to have someone else pick your partner for you and how primitive it is.

This same woman I know for a fact spends over $5,000 a year on services like Great Expectations, E-Harmony, Its just lunch, etc. in hopes of the same thing the only difference is it is a computer picking who she should marry\date instead of a family member....

Well...not the ONLY difference. With dating services you can actually say "No thank you". When the families match you, it's pretty much a done deal.

But I see your point in the irony. She should use that money to get a boob job.

Men really like the boobie.

It seems to me that no matter how ugly a person can be physically or socially, men flock to the nipple like a moth to a flame.

...said the girl with normal sized boobs...

Hell, most people can't pick out the right one on their own. What does it matter?

I am sad that you are a leg and butt man as my ass is ugly and I have the legs of a chicken.

I'm a thigh man.

I'm a thigh woman. Nothing like a nice pair of thighs on a guy. Or a chicken.

I wish someone would arrange a marriage for me. Then I wouldn't worry about meeting "the right one" because it wouldn't matter.

i really have no issues with arranged marriages. my mom and dad are cool peeps and could probably pick better than me.
