The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. – Lao Tzu
I’m from a army background, my dad used to move every two years, so i have to meet new people and make friends every two years. I think i was lucky , because my dad was posted in these kind of places where, we went we enjoyed, we saw what we wanted to see. I try to do volunteer work as much as I can for NGO and try to donate money. When I lost my engineering I was at home , I went to a blind school to teach them. I used to dictate them slow enough and thought them for a year. That was something fulfilling. I used to walk down to the school, sit with them and teach for 2 hours. I’m like the worst teacher ever, because I’m extremely impatient and I have zero level of tolerance. So for me to change and mold myself, the worst part was I was teaching a kid she was partially blind and dyslexic. To teach a dyslexic you need to me very skillful. It was very frustrating for me because I couldn’t bent own. that’s why i realized I’m going to do this for only a year. Because you need to have a different personality for that. It was really nice there is no doubt about it. #DIYTales
“I visited Gokarna to stay for a day, but I met her and she’s great company, so I ended up staying here for three days. I’m on a bike trip all over India.”
“I came to India to teach yoga. I have been teaching yoga for 20 years. After this I will go to Mysore. I want to spend two to three days there before going back to Spain. I think Love is a state of mind and happiness.”
“I think the sweetest moments are when you do these nonsensical and nobrainer things together. Like when you go shopping or the kind of simple choices which you make together it really helps in bonding. We love to cook together and bake together. Every once in a while when I come back from Bangalore to Chennai, I usually reach there at 5am, he would wake up and come all the way to see me and get me breakfast. That’s really sweet of him.”
We’ve been married for 6 years and we met online. We have a basic level of understanding with each other. It might not be a quality but we are willing to give each other space. We are not a couple that has to do everything together, people should do what they want to do. As far as online matrimonial sites are concerned, if you create your own profile and go through it yourself, it works. If someone else is doing it for you then it doesn’t really work.
We were in a relationship for 4 years. After that we just got married. The best thing I like about my husband is that he always stays above my expectations and surprises me every single time. I would advice everyone to just be patient in any kind of relationship. You have to wait for the right time.
The times they are a changing! Gone are the days when parents would advise their children to marry only within the community or choose someone from the ‘right’ profession. The modern day parent wishes for an understanding partner for their child, someone who mingles with the family and they appreciate it a lot more when their children are more involved in the partner hunt. And that brings us to DIY arranged marriages. We have a long list of reasons in favor of this concept.
More than statistics
Height, weight, complexion, caste, religion, salary, though important, come much after the person, their personality and characteristics. So at Wedeterna we’ve created innovative profile features that bring out personality and character traits, not just vital statistics. These profiles are self-created, which means you get to speak your mind and share your thoughts on everything from life to movies and scan through profiles of other like minded singles. Making it easier for people to interact, share and connect.
More of you
Since DIY is all about you, we’ve tailored our profile pages to give you easy access to different aspects of one’s personality: social, candid, photo collages and even partner preferences. So whatever be the specification you have in mind for your perfect partner, you’ll find it on Wedeterna.
Parents will love DIY
In today’s world where there’s so much exposure and people are way more liberal than before, it’s unrealistic to expect parents to know the kind of person you would like to marry. Don’t get us wrong, parents need to be involved in the process but they would definitely be happier if you could choose someone you like, yourself. Why leave all the hard work to them?
Parent created profiles Vs Self-created profiles
Most matrimonial websites cater to parents and therefore stick to factual information. A DIY matrimonial network changes the trend. Since Wedeterna is all DIY, the profiles have to be self-created which means, one can find more than statistics, one can actually get a glimpse into the person. Making it easier to get to know the person and like him/her for qualities over quantities.
Skip the awkward arranged marriage situation
You can skip the tea, the clothes, the relatives and dive straight into a conversation or read all that you want to about the person you like. And you can do this from the comfort of your desk without having a hundred eyes staring at you.
Your parents are still involved
Unlike a love marriage, here, you can still keep your parents involved in the search. On Wedeterna, we give you the option of getting it touch with parents first to keep the sanctity of a traditional arranged marriage intact.
Parents are involved in the end
The great thing about DIY is that you do everything from creating your profile, scanning profiles to choosing your partner yourself and involve parents and family at a stage where you choose to take it to the next level.
It’s the perfect combination of love and arranged marriage
A blend that helps you balance the two worlds without losing control. You can fall in love, involve the parents and keep everyone happy. DIY works beautifully well for those who want to find love on their own terms while keeping parents involved at the same time.
There’s absolute freedom
You are under no obligation of match-makers, middle-men, family ties etc. You can take your time, get to know everything you need to know about a person before you take the next step.
There’s absolute security
We ensure that your personal details, email id and phone number are never shared and never made public. No one gets access to it, not even premium members! While anybody can send you a request for your contact details, only you decide who you want to get in touch with.
And we have created Wedeterna ,a new-age, personalised and fresh approach to arranged marriages. DIY — DO IT Yourself Indian matrimonial website with most eligible singles.
As you know, we at Wedeterna believe in the DIY philosophy. But that doesn’t stop us from finding unique and interesting ways to play cupid. Which is why we shortlisted ‘Top 10 Conversation Cafés ‘ in Bangalore. Cafés with the prefect blend of an inviting ambiance that feeds conversations and a touch of local flavor. We even made suggestions on our favorite dishes on the menu at each of these cafés. Just to give singles more options on places to meet, connect and interact.
We even went a step further and organized a selfie contest at the cafés. All one had to do was walk into a café on our list of Conversation Cafés, take a selfie and Instagram it to stand a chance to win a grand prize! Each and every selfie had a distinct quantity to it. Some were fun, some were romantic and almost all of them were wonderfully unique.
So we would like to thank each and every one who participated in it and loved our initiative. It wasn’t easy to choose a winner but we had to. Congratulations to Parag Gupta & Namita Kulkarni for winning the Wedeterna Selfie Contest!
We would also like to thank all the cafés for collaborating with us on this event.
“I really liked him. I met him 8 years back in office and we never spoke to each other but I liked him and he liked me. Then it just happened. He proposed to me. It was not so much of drama. I hadn’t spoken to him properly, but I still liked him. He’s the first man I’ve fallen in love with. So I said yes. He’s very honest. I like that about him.
We went to Goa on our wedding anniversary recently. It was a surprise party. We went to a resort and he surprised me with this huge party. I never thought he’d do that. He’s not that kind of person.”
“I’m in a courtship period right now. This girl who I’m courting liked me but her parents weren’t very fond of me. She wanted to take it forward and wanted me to give her some assurance. She doesn’t live anywhere close to Bangalore so I promised to travel to where she is so she would get convinced that I was interested and would know that I would go the extra mile for her. It’s currently going smooth and I’m keeping my fingers crossed.”
