Most of these women created lives for themselves here and are now in search of their soulmate.These are the women who are action takers, same type of of women you would meet at our Love Tour in Florida - women, who went and got their tourist visa and are arriving to attend our tour (at their own expense) to meet their true love. Chief Executive KJ Dhaliwal saw Tinder wasn’t working for his friends and family.He realized apps like Tinder, Hinge and Coffee Meets Bagel weren’t inclusive of the needs of the South Asian community, where dating can be taboo and arranged marriages still occur.
