The question is,who does arranged marriages?

Every third advertisement in TV these days is or and even, believe it or not, is not affiliated with My foot,who cares??) 
The country which is progressing with the speed of Japan's bullet trains, its nice to know that we still follow some traditions. Even though the Nx Gen in India is in a rush to embrace the western culture, The number of people registered in such sites is alarming. The rate with which the number of of matrimonial sites are increasing, it seems that either the youngsters in this country are trusting computers than their heart to find the most compatible girl/boy(that's going superhuman..woohoo!) or are too lazy  to take the time and effort make a girl/boy fall in love with him/her. The second one seems to be the obvious. 
What sort of idiots would search for their life partner in a website? Middle class? Upper class? Big town? small town? Metro? Rich? Poor? Hot? Hideous? Apparently every tom dick and harry is there. 
How do i know? I am there too.
Not my choice i tell you. Mom is obsessed. A girl unmarried at 26 in a metro is a bit alarming. Then pray think about small town
To save myself from being shipped to the hands of geeky lazy bums, all i could do was fill all the columns with 100% original data, which mom didn't checked and is thankfully enough to scare away aspiring life partners. Actually i don't think even 10% people there is filling in their correct hobbies and time passes. Then all girls wouldn't cook well and all boys wouldn't love adventure.
What ever happens, even i die a spinster, am not going to have an arranged marriage. Now all i need to do is drill some sense into mom, which is divinely difficult. *sigh*

hey..even i come from small town [i guess] and i keep hearing news of my friends getting engaged/married..but i ven't come across a single case till now which got clicked through matrimonial smaller towns,more or less people believe in reference of a relative or people around or at max go for newspaper ad and then do all the research for getting their children married.. i wonder if i'll hv to go to any matrimonial site to get my match fixed up.. making friends is acceptable but u bond for life wid someone just by looking at profile..!! wohoo.. excuse me..!! :D
