Atleast on blind, I have noticed many people imply arranged marriages with a negative connotation. However, I’m perplexed as to why.
From what I understand, one has filtered people that are set up via family. So essentially, instead of going through a dating app or some other classical route (which you still can!) you get a filtered group of individuals that match your background / culture.
How does it get easier than that!? If I like them, great, if not, you just get another individual!
Another argument has been time frame constraints. Which if I understand correctly, means less time to date before deciding. However, this again doesn’t seem to be set in stone as I have colleagues who have talked for over a year before getting engaged!
If I’m not missing anything, I’m kinda low-key jealous.
With arranged marriages, how much of that is lost. Even now, only last year did I have to learn and force myself to "cold approach" women. All of my previous gfs have been friends who became more.
Why not put in the work, socialize and find someone? All of my ex-gfs have taught me something about myself. What I want, who I want, what I can or cant accept, how to forgive, heartbreak, etc.
There is satisfaction in hard work. Go out and do it yourself and learn and experience these things.
