The main purpose of matrimonial and dating apps is to help their users find ‘the one’, but then again the idea that comes with ‘the one’ varies from person to person or on the bases of demographics. For instance, more than half of young adults (18-24 years old) see dating sites for casual hookups or relationships that could be or could not be serious, where adults are more likely to see them as a means to helping them develop short and long-term relationships, or their main focus is marriage so they find shelter under the matrimonial apps.
The question here arises is how to distinguish between them or how their purpose varies from one another. This article will explain what the difference between a matrimonial and dating app is.
Dating apps are kind of personal introductory systems, usually for users in their late teens to mid-20s and many are not even looking for committed relationships. , These apps gave consumers a platform to experiment with relationship options that might not end in marriage but offered flexibility in the form of flings, short-term relationships, companionship or love. Sometimes, people use dating apps just to find friends. Whereby individuals can find and contact each other over the Internet to arrange a date, usually with the objective of developing a personal, romantic, or sexual relationship. Dating apps can be very frivolous ‘hot or not’ type experiences, which hardly lend themselves well to sincere intent or commitment. In short, the whole idea that comes with dating apps is playful but then again there’s a possibility of that turning into something serious entirely based on the desires of the individuals.
There were times when marriages were arranged in closed family networks, same caste just to be sure that a known familiar person stands for a groom or a bride, then with time, the trends changed. Globalization became a reason, the geographic gap started to increase and the people started looking for means to connect around the globe to broaden their horizons. Several apps came into being to connect people for friendship, professional networking, Love, Dating and maybe Marriages as the final step. Matrimonial apps were developed to help bring people together.
Matrimonial sites targets parents who are looking for a suitable match for their children. They make something as important as finding a life partner a very transactional process, where you are assessing someone not based on who they are but filters like weight, complexion, nationality, age, gender, availability of photograph and often religion, geographic location, and caste. Matrimonial apps are comparatively more dependable than the dating apps since the information the users put on it is verified and confirmed before further follow-up.
Matrimonial works almost as similar to dating apps but mostly the entire family is involved in the process where dating apps works o individuality. According to the norms when two parties meet through matrimonial apps their entire families meet and the only idea in their head is a marriage where on dating sites it’s up to the individuals what sort of relationship they’re looking for.
