Whilst he was hardworking and I believe his intentions are good, some of the personal habits I observed left a lot to be desired.

We got along well and I enjoyed his company, until is philandering ways became apparent. It felt like he was a little boy hiding from his mother, not the strapping man that I had thought he was.
Even at that point, he cowered and seemed incapable of admitting and facing the truth of his own behaviour. I recently arranged to catch up with an intelligent man I had come across, but on our first meeting he brought along a female friend.
Feeling a little uneasy, I continue on with my internet research and find this blog on Reasons to Marry an Indian Man.In my opinion, if they had to go out and attract a woman entirely on their own (and assuming she had unfettered free will and choice in the matter), they would be less likely to indulge in these behaviours. In years past I have come to India for work, and in my current stay in Delhi I am living with family and am privy to another side of India.Whilst the professional men that I have met don’t have the more distasteful personal habits, I do still find them very difficult to understand.Several years ago I tried my hand at internet dating through the website Here I found hundreds of men all with photos where they looked like their mother had dressed them.
