A lot of people are finding their dream partners on matrimony sites. They have, in fact, emerged as a saviour and a trustworthy matchmaker in this era when no one has time to find potential spouse conventionally. But still, there are people who don’t have trust on these matrimonial websites. Here are some common myths debunked about these matrimony sites, which leads to wrong impression and mistrust about them.

Myth 1: They Have Fake Creep Accounts


Fact: This assumption might have been true around 10-15 years back when matrimonial services just started. Many frivolous people registered on it just for fun or some cheap agenda. Things have improved since then. Now, these websites use stringent verification processes. They have strict rules for members and robust vigilance teams, which make sure that no fake profiles can get registered. But yes, you need to use only reputed matrimonial sites, which have all quality control and security measures in place to keep your data secure and weeds out all creepy fake profiles from registering on it.

Myth 2: Matrimonial Sites Are for Second Timer or Older People

Fact: People often think that online matrimonial sites are for those people who are looking for a second marriage or have failed to get a good match through conventional method owing to age or any other factor. It is actually a prejudice to assume that. These sites are used by younger and eligible people of marriageable age and from good and respectable backgrounds.

Myth 3: Matrimony Sites Are Good for Nothing

Fact: Yet another misnomer to do rounds is that joining a matrimonial site is a waste of time, money and effort. This is totally incorrect because these sites are a very efficient and hassle-free method of finding the right match as compared to the conventional method. The traditional method is elaborate, time-consuming and in this fast-paced life, not many have the luxury of finding mates in a traditional manner.

Myth 4: It’s Embarrassing If Their Social Circles Found about the Profile

Many people just shun these matrimonial sites thinking that if their family, friends or social circles found about it they will make fun of them. It is this fear of embarrassment from their real-life social contacts that they stay away from registering on online matrimony services. If this is what is keeping you away from these sites, you should know that all reputed matrimonial websites allow you to keep your profile hidden from unregistered people using the security options. Only those who are registered on a particular website can see your profile.

Myth 5: One Doesn’t Get a Good Match Here

Fact: Many people believe that people don’t normally get a good match on these websites. They are of the opinion that those who join such websites are there for fun and not for a serious relationship. Well, it is not at all true. There are enough testimonials and sites’ analytics to prove the success stories of these websites. Moreover, it’s these websites that make it absolutely hassle-free to find a partner from the religion or caste you are looking for. For instance, if you are looking for a Muslim partner, you can register yourself on Muslim matrimony website.
