Obviously I have zero hands-on experience with a relationship in India but what I do know without a doubt is that relationships are taken much more seriously here than in Spain – and they are fundamentally different from the U. In Spain, the divorce rate is relatively low compared to the U. which boasts the highest divorce rate in the world. Yet here in India, this country has (I think) one of the lowest divorce rates in the world at just 3%.When I first arrived and started to learn more about arranged marriages I was fascinated.
Back home in Spain, I had such amazing friends and such a great time just hanging out with my daughter that I never went out looking for a boyfriend.
And to be fair no one was beating down my door in Spain either.
There is a new Indian talk show that is all about sex that recently started and I’ve seen blogs on the major Indian newspapers websites that are all about sexual topics.
So does this mean that attitudes towards this topic are also changing? My single Indian friends all seem to have an open and playful attitude towards it.
BUT that short-lived burst of romance after my mega-long dry spell started me thinking about dating, relationships and sex …and the differences between how things are here in India and what I am accustomed to from Spain and California.
These are yet again more black and white, night and day scenarios given just how different things are here in India.But even with that open attitude, I know there is no way on the planet that a single one of them would ever discuss this with their families! So it’s probably safe to say that there won’t be a sexual revolution happening anytime soon in India …but you never know.XOXO from Bangalore © Angela Carson and Angela’s Adventures in Bangalore blog and photos, 2011 I started Angela's Bangalore from my hotel room on the very first day I moved to India in 2011, while struck with jet lag!I was sat on a bench people-watching and the cutest young couple walked past me, appearing very much in love and moving quite slow while they looked at each other and talked…followed closely by someone’s grandma!!I assume it was the girl’s grandma accompanying them to ensure that no hanky panky went on because she was eagle-eyeing them the entire time and was never more than three paces behind them.Browse through our diverse personals categories to connect with locals looking for the same as you, whether that is friendship, a casual fling or a more serious relationship.
