All the questions you should ask the guy that you're having a 'Rishta' meeting with
01/10Meeting a guy for your 'Rishta'? Ask him these questions
We can all wave our flags and claim we're independent and can manage on our own but if there's one thing that we Indians will never get rid of it is an arranged marriage concept. And to be honest, it's not really a bad thing. The only difference is that in this concept of 'dating', your parents are also involved. But then again things are going to be a bit awkward when you're meeting someone for the first time. However, you must also remember that this is a life-long commitment which is why you must ask all the right questions. Just make sure to have an honest heart to heart and you'll see what can work best for you.readmore

07/10So, who is the closest to you in your family?
One of the best things you can ask him to get him to open up would be who he's closest to in his family.

Plus, you'll understand what kind of dynamics he shares with the people around him and that'll tell you a lot.
08/10What do you do outside of work?

09/10What are the qualities you're looking for in a partner?
