Five minute dating
When we are finally let out on a short leash to begin finding spouses, the pressure can be too much to handle.I figured that if condensing this whole process into “speed dating” didn’t make it any easier, at least it was brief. He was one of the few good-looking dudes at the event, and I knew all eyes were on him. Our families both came from the same city in Pakistan.Right now, it’s an undeveloped, mostly-abandoned building with no signage located on a deserted street most known for its proximity to the Amish Market. It’s not the only option, but it’s the one that would ensure a harmonious relationship between my parents and myself.
A businesswoman sitting next to me interrogated each and every male with the same battery of questions: “What are the most important qualities in a partner? What qualities do you find attractive and unattractive?
I beamed, especially when I overheard Amir say, “I’m definitely going to be in touch with your daughter.” Out of everyone in the crowd, this guy picked me. We said our goodbyes, and my parents and I set off back to my place in Brooklyn. This time, my parents and I were in agreement—we would never go through this again.
