I need to prove something to my parents lol and was wondering if I could PM you guys a couple of pressing questions, which may be too embarrassing to post in public. I don't mind getting input from others, but since I'm Indian, I could really use answers from Indian people who might be able to better understand my situation. We, as a race, face some unique problems.

Not sure how many Indian people are on SDN, but if you're willing to listen, can I PM you? It's important :help:

I lived with an Indian girl once, and she had the unique problem of completely clogging the shower drain with hair right after I scrubbed it down and cleaned everything. Then there would be a trail of hair all over the floor. Smh, haha.

Edit: And it is probably about dating if she wants guys especially

Mom and dad,

Look I went on this medical message board and got a poll from 100 Indian males in their 20s & 30s that they still aren't married or have children. Please stop arranging me to have a marriage with Sandhi. I want to go to medical school, not go on dates. Yes, I know his family has like twenty doctors! But I want to become a doctor, not marry one.

@riya.rhino If that is the case, then honestly kudos. Not many people would attempt to use poll data as a form of conflict resolution when it comes to their parents. Especially when they themselves are the ones being unfairly pressured to meet their demands. Issues with my parents often devolved into mutual property damage and me drifting around the east coast for three to four months.

I'd encourage topics to be discussed on the open forum for others to benefit from.
