Hmmmmm... I have been thinking... I DO need a new phone and I DO think Sunil Gavaskar would enjoy sunset walks on the beach. Hands off ladies, he's mine!

tofu67, IndiaMike meetups are very much a part of this site's community and have happened in many places, in and out of India.

Please feel absolutely free to initiate one!

The IndiaMike Meetup Thread is a good place to start.

Its not about making friends just....
I would assume that One would need to be in the right crowd! to ensure that none of us gets into any sort of mess...thats the key..

However to make that happen it needs a lot of time and perseverance and thats my friends is hard given todays dog eat dog world

Cheers

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 ...
You are right on spot about cool places to go for an expat, nanelita.. Climax, if you haven't been there yet, don't wait! It is a very nice place, cool, chilled-out club/lounge atmosphere, you can do heavy partying or laid-back talking on the huge terrace. Only prob is, you never know when they are gonna shut.. Sometimes they are open till 4AM, sometimes they close at 12:30.. But it's definitely worth the shot..

Calypso is also a cool place to go for a party night out - go on a Wednesday or Friday, as these days tend to be the most happening. The crowd there is cool..

And as for the original question, if dating is possible... Yes it is, it is very much possible, and it happens... That's all I'm gonna say

Actually
I've put my India plan on hold for the moment, since I've just been offered a job in New York with my existing employer, which I can't really turn down. My two favourite places have always been New York and Delhi - for quite different reasons - so I had to go really.

Perhaps this is because I am exception amongst IMers in that I am not with partner of courting. If I am not out on a limb here has anyone had experience of know of social meeting places that encourage singletons to attend? Or at least where it is acceptable to dance with the opposite sex and share a drink etc.

The choices avalable seem to be couples only clubs or those where 'stags are permitted'.

Of course the culture here amongst Indians would generally not approve of such dalliances with Westerners (particulary Western males I would imagine).

Perhaps there is nothing to be done and I (and fellow expats) should resign oneself to a lengthy stretch of bachelor/spinsterdom.

Perhaps an idea would be to organize a regular night for single expats and locals and their partnered friends if they wish.

I live in Delhi but the same would I guess be true for any other city in India. It will be most interesting to read any feedback, ideas any one has.

So are you saying you're looking for a date

I think the main issue would be that many (most? nearly all?) Indian women do not date, they search for potential spouses. Serious questions come very early like "what are your thoughts on the education of your [future] children?" or "why are you in your thirties and still single?".

hey shakti,
just wanted to say ur soooo wrong abt tht one
not all indian women are looking for a spouse !!
