An Indian online dating and friendship community with chat, email and texting. The site is available to those living in the UK, US and India and people of all ethnic backgrounds and religions, but is principally for English speakers of Indian background.
IndianDating is a community for people of Indian descent to meet, chat and exchange mail with one another. The site is available in English only and most members are of Indian origin but are living in the U.K. or the United States.
It's a pay site, operated by the Cupid network. It's possible to access the site as a guest (free) member though you can't do very much until you upgrade to a paid plan.
To join, the first step is to enter your location and a valid email address. After confirming your email, you'll be required to complete several sections about yourself and your lifestyle and what type of person you are looking for.
There's a possibility to upload photos and videos to your profile too - many steps can be skipped until later, making the whole process relatively quick and straightforward.
On entering the site for the first time, the first impression is that it's fairly modern and well-presented, and easy to use. This improves the whole experience as you don't have to constantly think where something is when there. The blend of colors also adds to the site's appeal.
The main search tools are available at the top of the page. A quick search lets you locate other users by their age and postcode (UK postcode or US Zip) or city. Other options let you ignore profiles without photos or videos. The advanced settings offer further additional choices to narrow down your search.
As with most other pay sites, as a free member you will find your access is fairly restricted until you upgrade. While other people's profiles can be viewed, close-up photos can't. Neither are they able to send messages (other than express interest via an e-flirt). The site's instant chat system is also only accessible to paying members.
There's also a community section with a few articles as well as user-created blogs (online diaries) - however this section of the site doesn't appear to be very active.
IndianDating is a niche online venue where people of the Indian culture can meet for socializing or relationships. It's not a matrimonial site and doesn't claim to be.
If you are seeking a bigger or more traditional matrimony service you would do better elsewhere (Shaadi or Qiran for example).
