Today, after a lifetime of being single, my parents finally found me a nice, intelligent, pretty girl. I was really excited, until she backed out on me when she found out our star signs don't match. FML

I'm not for or against this practice but I believe op is talking about.. marriage and not just a date. But yeah, lucky Dodge there op.

This is typical indian family marriage deal

Obviously not that intelligent if she believes in that crap and didn't bother giving you a chance. Dodged a bullet there op

Like you would like it if you were being forced into marriage. She was probably really desperate to escape it.

It's a cultural thing mist likely. Indians are very superstitious.

Let me just point out that an arranged marriage is not the same thing as forced marriage. A forced marriage does consist of the parents forcing their child to become legally bonded in a marriage without their consent (AKA in the form of child brides and such). An arranged marriage is one the child agrees to, and the process includes usually parents deciding whether or not their children would be good matches for each other and then setting them up together to get married. I don't know much about the actual process of either of these things, but this what I know so far and I know they're different. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

A lot of arranged marriages consist of reading into each other's horoscopes.

Not much difference imo. I would guess that the social pressure to listen to their parents when it comes to marriage is so huge they eventually give in. I do not agree even with arranged marriages. People should be able to choose whichever partner they want. At least this woman was able to reject someone she does not like.

She is pretty stupid.

Dodged a bullet there. I dated someone who believed all of it and it was annoying because it allowed her to assume things because of the "readings" saying so.

Well, people that believe in stuporstition tend to really be intelligent.

I don't even know where to start with your comment

I'm still trying to figure out if you were trying to make a pun out of "stupid" and "superstition", or if you really don't know how "superstition" is spelled.

Eh, if I'm university educated and can't spell "superstition", maybe it points out flaws in our education system. It was an attempt at a pun, it obviously failed, no need to ponder. Just let it get buried deeper and move on.

Dodged a bullet there OP.

Fortunately, you may have dodged a superstitious nightmare...

Looks like you're the one out of her league
