Unattached in Delhi

To gt back to the original question, tofu67: I was amazed when a friend of mine at INTACH in Delhi told me she was glad she was getting married so she wouldn't have to hang out on the Internet like some of her girlfriends. I wasn't aware that Indian girls/women were into that! So get out your computer.... Unfortunately, I forgot to ask which websites they used

Folks....

Just to warn you...India aint UK. Even if you were to talk to a single women in a pub in delhi and offer a drink more likely that you will be lucky to get out with a slap in the face..

Sorry to disaapoint but the best buddies as of now are the TV - the premier league is up and running ---so am least bothered....i just have to ensure that the bar is well stocked up.

Cheerio

When I go to India I'll try my moves on the upper class bars in Bombay, tell them I'm an Australian cricketer. Well, it's true, I am Australian and I do play cricket.

Yes May, a slap in the face is quite likely I fear. My (Indian) boss told me the other day that I need to find myself 'a wife'. I explained that in the UK people don't generally go looking for marriage material but will instead look for a date more often than not these would be find in pubs or clubs. My boss helpfully pointed out that the only Indian women you will find in pubs here are all prostitutes. Although this may not be strictly true it does appear to illustrate the attitude Indians have towards 'easy' women'.

I suspect that you won't get far at all unless you are seriously rich. If you are seriously rich, you'll probably get as far as you want!

Unhappy delhi life ...

I'm experiencing life in Delhi and rather share the same feeling than you . I would not say because of not meeting people but finaly and that is very sad because of culture differencies. I was expecting being able to develop some frienship with Indian people but the fact that the society is very conservative and being a woman from the West - it's quite really difficult to make friends. Culture wise young people are closer to us and more open minded but then the way we are mature is different.... Concerning dating, being a western woman, men look at me as an "easy girl" and look for sex only. Or if this is not the case they are looser interested for my money ...
Beside that I would say that Delhi is not really happening as a city ...

The social circle is for Indian people more important than anything else. The problem is to find the right one, the one that is matching you ... but making friends at work is one of the way as you already have your occupation in common.
I would also say that hopefully there is all kind of people here and did observe that things are easier with people who got the chance to travel or even to study or live abroad. And things are also easier with people who are not living with their parents.
It's one year that I'm here and I'm still giving some time hopping to meet someone and to make some good friend as anyway it takes time to make good friends.Also it is already several months that I didn't go out for different reasons ...
The best way is to go out as much as you can. There si mainly days when people goes out in Delhi : wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
Here are some places where you can go : Agni at the Park hotel : it's a bar/club entry free and being a western guy they will not make any problem if you are alone.
Turquoise cottage : the crowd is mainly Indian but supposed to be open minded ....
Riks is the bar at the Taj Palace Hotel mansingh - very nice place to at least have a drink.
I heard about Climax that sounds to be "the place" where to go.
Otherwise there is few bars in GK1 M block and N block market.
Stone in Defence Colony market where a lot of expat comes : it's a lounge / italian restaurant.
Qba at Connaught Place is also a nice place : bar / lounge / restaurant ...

And of course internet might help you ...
Well good luck !

I have also been here for a year. Although my husband and I enjoy going out together he does not enjoy socializing as much as I do . For that reason I go out a lot by myself or with friends. I have made MANY Indian friends (many of them single, male and female). I think that Delhi does have things to do. Once a week my hubby and I go out for dinner or dancing. At least twice a month my friends and I go for a "Girls Night" (We plan them) there are always fun parties going on.
There are many movie festivals hosted by embassies (great occasions to meet people) Delhi has a good wine tasting club that organizes many events. The people that go to this events vary in age and are very friendly. The sad thing is that there is not enough time to enjoy everything that there is to do and some things are limited. (Like a place to listen to Jazz, but I am still looking for one : !
It is true that it is not as easy to start a conversation with a stranger here, but there are ways of doing this .You do have to work a little bit harder on creating a social circle than what you need to do somewhere else but once you start doing it Delhi can be a fun place to be.

It was good to read your response Nanelita. I get the feeling that the guys who would not be only interested in sex, or sex and your money, would probably lack the courage to strike up a conversation with a western woman, probably through fear of making faux pas. Perhaps you will need to make the first move and dispel any notions they may have concerning westerners' voracious sexual appetites...not that there is anything wrong in that of course.

In addition to the places you suggested I would recommend DV8 in CP. The ambience is closer to a western style pub then any other place I have been to yet - and the beer is relatively inexpensive. Mercifully, you will not hear Punjabi pop music.
Maybe it would be a good place for IMers to hang out on occasion. I'm on friendly terms with the owner I'm sure he would reserve a corner of the room for a few ex pats if he thought the bar would be generously patronised! I am not sure if India Mike nights out are organized but it would be a pretty decent idea.
