The 2011 India‘s census revealed that there are only 940 women for every 1000 men. Though the number is very close margin, it is found that majority of Indian women are single. What is stopping them from mingling or choosing a life partner? Are Indian men hostile beings that they do want to interact with?

“Some men I’ve met were blessed with healthy bank balances, but they also had serious attitude problems to go with these,” she explains. “And men I’ve met who’ve been perfectly amiable and charming wouldn’t be able to support my lifestyle. It’s hard to find the right balance.” As quoted by idiva.
