From what I've witnessed in the lives of friends and family friends, it isn't atypical in Indian-American culture for parents to suggest high-paying professions as viable options.
In fact, we're usually to continue education after college.
They are into committed relationship and dedicated to their partner in every way.
What would an aspiring writer and an aspiring cardiologist talk about over coffee, anyway? It was my fault; I asked him what he wanted to do with his life. I wanted to talk about my favorite piece of prose from "Pride and Prejudice" and about why I feel sad sometimes and don't know why.A clearly very smart guy, he looked at me with blank stares after he asked me about my interests. But whenever I started on any of my favorite things, he would tune out.I remember my very first high school crush, whom I'd met in the drama club.Bernard* was tall and had cream-colored skin, with sea-green eyes and dirty blond hair (he was WAY out of frizzy-haired Sheena's league).So, if you date a South Indian boyfriend, you will be lucky to see a good plate of food on your table once he is your husband.
It is rarely you find a South Indian boyfriend cheating on their lady.
Like Bernard, the guys I've dated have all had wild aspirations. There was the music producer, the impassioned civil rights activist and so on and so forth.
The white guys I dated were often encouraged to be themselves growing up.
According to the Pew Research Center, 40.6 percent of Indian-Americans over the age of 25 have graduate or professional degrees, which makes us one of the most highly educated ethnic groups in America.
I am not a "highly educated" person (well, not according to conventional standards, anyway. And I never to be; I was always the artist, the social outcast, the brown girl different from most brown guys who were on their way to pursuing a steady job and a steady income in law or medicine or business. I liked to talk about indie-pop artists; they liked to talk about which Mercedes they were saving up to buy. Simply put, brown guys and I had little-to-nothing in common besides our brown skin color. There was this brown guy named Rohit*, the first of three Indian guys I've ever dated, whom I met in college. One day, I had a beer with him while he talked my ear off about capital management and private equity.
Dating a South Indian guy is advantageous because it is they who bring out the values in an Indian woman.
