Indian Matchmaker Explains Why People Stay Single: ‘Many Of These Things Are Not Very Important’


Sima Taparia is an Indian matchmaker who has been in the business for years. She’s so good that she’s brought her matchmaking prowess to Netflix, where the hopeful and curious can stream her show, Indian Matchmaking, alongside the downtrodden and skeptical.

Many may be surprised to find out that the art of matchmaking is alive and well during this modern age. If anything, the recent health crisis and the subsequent lockdown have meant that for Sima, business is booming.

Sima recently explained her process to The New Yorker:

“The business is growing in lockdown. My system is, I go to the client’s house, I see their way of living, how they are financially. At least it’s satisfying that we see each other on FaceTime. I don’t work as though I’m a broker or in some type of finance — it’s all emotion.”

She’s also noted that she’s made two “big matches” during the time period, but the weddings are on pause. After all, she says, in India, “Only fifty people are allowed at a wedding right now. Here, we want to do a big fat wedding, a huge fat wedding.”
