While arranged marriages are still the norm in India, the trend is declining and the so called traditional 'arranged marriages' are now 'arranged love marriages'.

Success of sites like Shaadi.com prove that arranged marriages are a thing of the past. Although Shaadi.com is not a true dating site, it is akin to eHarmony, True or Tickle Marriage where dating or the process of finding a match is done with an intent to marry.

Dating, friendship & social networking sites like Fropper.com are catching on in India because of changes in cultural attitudes, income etc. The success of Fropper.com today can be attributed to this change.

Fropper is one of India's leading friendship, dating & social netwroking site with half a million memebers and it is quite clear that members here are looking for dates and/or interaction with like minded people but are far from seeking a spouse.
