Tired of matrimonial sites and the help of relatives not yielding any positive results, a Kerala man has turned to "Facebook Matrimony" in search of a life partner.
34-year-old Ranjish Manjeri, a photographer from Manjeri in Malappuram district, recently put out a Facebook post seeking a bride for himself.
He writes, "My wedding has not been fixed yet and I am still looking for someone. If you know anyone, please let me know. Iam 34 years old. I have to see the girl and like her. I have no other demands. Occupation: Photographer. Hindu. Caste no bar."
Ranjish also published a selfie with his parents outside their house. His family members include his parents and a sister who is married, he stated.
The post, which has gone viral now, has been received over 3,800 shares with many impressed with his approach and wishing him the best in his endeavour.
Ever since the post went out with his phone number, Ranjish told Khaleej Times that barring a few prank calls, he has been inundated with calls from those genuinely interested in the match.
"Families called from India, Australia, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the US. Some were enquiries for girls falling in my age group. Some were divorcees. I must admit that to choose from hundreds of proposals will give me a hard time. I have given people my WhatsApp account to send photos and details," he said.
When asked if he was open to marry a woman from another country, he said that while he was not against the idea fully, he had several considerations to make. "I am not averse to foreign girls. But I need to weigh the pros and cons, especially language. I am the only son. Sister is married with an 18-year-old daughter. So no big baggage of responsibilities," he told the publication.
Ranjish has been looking for a life partner for nearly seven years now.
