The site, originally launched in 2004, is the brainchild of San Francisco-based entrepreneur, Dawn Miller, 32, who was inspired to turn the matchmaking efforts of her own mother and her friends' mothers into a larger network.

They were sometimes called picture-bride marriages among Japanese American immigrants because the bride and groom knew each other only through the exchange of photographs before the day of their marriage.

These marriages among immigrants were typically arranged by parents, or relatives from the country of their origin.

Jenkins seems quick to paint the websites as little more than arranged marriages-lite, based in part on one personal encounter with a woman whose profile was written by her parents.

But the fact that these matrimonial sites are so popular points to the fact that more young Indians aren't being set up for marriages by others — most of the users, says Jenkins, are urban, middle-class young Indians.

Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc. Let's just face it - in western culture, we're all just to darned spoiled, hard to please, have unreasonable expectations and a sense of entitlement.

Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... it's very unlikely I would ever have another infant, lol.... A lot of us hate our parents or never had parents worthy of respect. I think we've brought a lot of problems on ourselves when it comes to relationships and dating.

Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. I'll cook if you wash (of course, at the moment, the infants I had, are now teenagers and they wash dishes like nobodies business) We'd always get to do what we want to. I'd find it a heck of a lot easier if a guy came with references from his family and I knew what his plans for me were.

It's about relying on the matchmaking mastery of Mom and Dad.

Enter the dating service Matchmaking, where the members are moms, not singles who love them.
