Being in a relationship with one person with full love, dedication and admiration is what our Indian ‘Sanskari’ (Cultural) society believes in. Also, it seems fair enough for both partners, if seen practically. Being in dual or multiple relationship at the same time was considered a sin earlier in our very own Indian culture. But, the influence of western culture has spoiled the dating culture in India. Nowadays, multiple dating is considered a new trend to be followed.
In Indian society where dating is something a far topic to talk on publicly, multiple dating is extremely against the society norms. Although, Indian youths are dating secretly in order to preserve their cultural values and be ethical as per our society.
The youth of our nation, however, has taken the status of ‘being in relationship’ to a different level. Many people have now started and have ‘multiple dating/relationship’ status after following prey to the western trend.
What is multiple relationship trend?
Nowadays, many people, be it a boy or a girl, tend to date more than one partner at the same time, just to fulfill their needs and wants or just for fun and time pass. This trend led to people doubt on existence of “true love”. It seems that true love is only present in “love tales” now. Also, many partners are cheated over just to be in this trend.
Is multiple dating beneficial?
If talking on ethical grounds, multiple dating is not what we need or is a thing that cannot be justified. On the other hand, this culture helps out people to get a better glimpse of their real partners. As by this, people come to know about their actual compatibility with their partner which directly leads to happy life ahead.
The repercussion of following this trend is more related to emotional breakdown. It so happens when in relationship with a person, the partner falls in immense love with them. And in case of breaking down with each, or if they come to know about your other partners, they feel cheated and emotionally unstable. Thus such trend is obviously hazardous as it can never be justified as a ‘right thing to do’ to other people.
Multiple dating trend and India
Well, in India, this concept is trending fast. Boys with multiple relationships are considered as being a happening thing. Addition to it, many boys have started faking up a relationship just to attain the title of being a stud. Along with this, even girls are having more than one relationship for their strange reasons.
Not all but many people have taken up this concept. Very few people still believe in one ideal relationship with a person. So it can be said that this trend is present in India and has more potential to grow drastically. Dating apps have equally contributed to making Indian couples getting lured to being in a multiple relationship concept. People dating over internet seem to know less about the person in real and they initially chat for fun and end up being in a relationship with them. This leads people to be in relationship with multiple people, without letting the either partner know about other partner.
