Matrimonial websites

                   

Matrimonial websites, or marriage websites, are a variation of the standard dating websites, with a focus on those wanting marriage rather than simply dating.[1][2]

Matrimonial sites are specially popular in India and among Indians settled overseas, as an alternative to the traditional marriage broker.[3] In 2006, the business of organized marriages in India was worth INR 10 billion.[4] A general study has shown that young men and women in India generally do not feel any compulsion to date since dating has not been a part of the culture historically, and love is often taken to be the total mutual dedication that comes after marriage.[citation needed]

Matrimonial sites register users, after which they are able to upload their profile onto a searchable database maintained by the website. Those users looking to find suitors search the database with customised searches that typically include nationality, age, gender, availability of photograph and often religion, geographic location and caste (mainly for websites based in India).

There have been reports of abuse of information obtained from matrimonial websites.[5] [6] [7][8] .[9]

A service provider may use registration profiles to filter preferences and may run several different portals aimed at e.g. users belonging to a particular caste or religion.[10]

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
