The struggle is real, guys! OkCupid‘s new campaign ‘Find My Kind’ video gets it right. The one word that shouldn’t be in your dictionary while you look out for your life partner is ‘compromise’. As the video shows us, it’s difficult to tackle these obstacles, but it’s very important to stand up for what you really want. Here are the things you shouldn’t worry about when it comes to finding you Mr/Ms Right:
According to the survey conducted by OkCupid, 92% of the users feel their values vastly differ from their parents’. You shouldn’t marry because papa kehte hain, but because he/she believes in the same things as you do and will celebrate your quirks instead of trying to fit you into their idea of a partner.
As much as your friends love you, they wouldn’t necessarily be the best judge to find your life partner. As OkCupid survey points out, a majority of the users (79%) do not believe they echo their friends’ preferences. When you’ve been on enough blind dates gone bad, you know that’s not the sort of experiment you want.
The age-old question of ‘Beta, ab tum kabh settle honge?’ is the pressure point to which even Sharma Ji‘s beta crumbled. It’s easy to be a victim of the societal norms. Like what you wear shouldn’t be other people’s concern, whom you date or who your life partner should be shouldn’t concern them either. Also, it’s very important to find a partner who shares the same beliefs too.
Millennials now have a clear idea of who they are and what they want from life. While finding a partner, they look for deeper aspects than just good looks, social status, family background, etc. They are more keen on knowing the finer and more personal aspects like interests and common life goals. So, just concentrate on yourself, your likes, your needs and your criteria. What’s gonna help you do just that is the filtering algorithm that OkCupid has to introduce you to a meaningful relationship.
OkCupid takes into consideration a person’s values, opinions and quirks in addition to understanding a user’s criteria in finding the perfect partner. The best part is OkCupid also takes into account a person’s individuality and self-expression.
