The difference between Tinder and Indian matchmaking websites, apart from one platform being honest and the other just shallow, is that on Tinder, people still make room for coming across someone who might or might not be the kind of a person they’d be willing to date. Whereas on matrimonial websites, you HAVE to qualify some bizarre requirements that go up from wanting you to be ‘fair’ to ‘earning less’ than the man.
And while height, weight, complexion were still requirements we’d heard of, the newest requirement that has been grabbing eyeballs is that of a man looking for a bride who falls into a particular bra size, waist size, and even a designated feet size.
No, we are not making this up. Pun intended.
A screenshot shared by a Reddit user shows a man who has written up the requirements for a prospective partner that wants her attire to be “80% casual and 20% formal”, but with the exception of being willing to wear ‘costumes in bed’.
And since the ad also specifies the bra size and other measurements of the woman, we wonder if he was putting out an ad for a partner or an actress for a role to play in his home movies. Not just this, the man went on and on describing his ‘dream woman’ and even the kind of ‘pro-life and liberal’ views she is supposed to have, along with no kids.
Clearly for the guy, finding a life partner was just like placing an order at a restaurant that would custom-make his future wife for him and internet users were dying to break it to the guy, with some hilarious comments to the screenshot.
One user wrote, “This guy wants character customization, not a partner. Good god,” while another one compared his ad to, “This is like ordering a perfectly cooked steak.” Another user highlighted the plight of men as he pointed out the sentiment that many men feel when women ask for 6 ft tall guys.
However, there were also a few Reddit users who believed it to be no more than a prank or a sarcastic dig at matrimonial ads, keeping in mind just how unbelievable and bizarre it was in the first place.
Meanwhile, if this is not a joke, we wonder what’s next to make it to the list of requirements? A designated bowel movement chart?
