  • I might give a try by curiosity, who knows, maybe they picked someone I'm attracted to! But forcing me to marry the one they picked? Heck No!
    My mother wouldn't chose a bad guy anyways, she'll probably pick a man from back home with a good career and reputation... But I would rather find Love by myself and write my own story!
    Plus my Mom doesn't put as much emphasis on the physical aspect as me, but I want a man I'm really attracted to!

  • That's called 'arranged marriage', and it's the most common way of finding partners in my country.

    It looks like I may have to choose that option eventually, since I have been single for over 5 years now, and I don;'t see any prospective dates on the horizon! :P

  • Of course not. The only thing my parents look for is what a guy's GPA is, what major he has, and how well he can kiss up to them. Of course, intelligence and potential job is important, but overall, my parents have no idea what type of guy I'm attracted to.

    • Now that is hilarious 😂

    • @Xelebrum It's noooooooot! because my grandpa is like... slowly dying right now so I FEEL BAD SAYING NO. Especially since he makes it zero secret that I'm his favorite.

    • ... well shit. :/

  • I would never let them do it for me!
    I'm 100% sure that they would choose someone who's the opposite of what I like.

  • Probably not. My mom would want someone straight out of a Hallmark movie, and I'd rather not... That being said, they don't care who I date as long as I'm happy and he treats me right.

  • I mean, I wouldn't be outrightly against it but I wouldn't prefer it either. Many cultures practice this or have practiced it at one time, even the West. I guess I would let my parents choose provided that at least three conditions were met 1) she shared the same faith as me 2) she was blonde and pretty 3) she held traditional values.

  • FUCK. NO. Not just because that would be lame as fuck, but also because my parents are super religious and conservative and would definitely pick out an equally religious and conservative church girl who probably wouldn't ever suck dick, and I ain't having that shit.

  • Today, people's choices are appalling.

    They could benefit from parental guardianship and wisdom although it is the parent who raised these children who have given them poor judgement.

  • I'm south Asian so its common in my culture.

    I'd only let them pick one out if I was old and hadn't found anyone, like 26...
