Asian dating in houston
The pair sought to create a “Goldilocks” dating app for the South Asian community, developed to fill the gap between apps that are either too generalized and liberal (like Tinder), or too conservative (matrimony websites like Shaadi.com).
Realizing that many South Asians no longer “fit the mold of what their parents wanted them to be,” Patel noted that it was crucial for Kama to showcase that evolution.
“Our inspiration was to develop an app that enables like-minded South Asians to connect on a reliable, smart platform,” he explained.
In February 2015, six months after that fateful conversation with his friends, Patel and his friend of 10 years, Pinal, co-founded Kama, introducing a free version on Apple’s App Store.
“For the team and I, it is extremely important to build a stronger South Asian community, and this platform is meant to do that,” he said.
“We are entrepreneurs, creators, innovators, designers, philanthropists, artists, actors, comedians, writers, and much more.” “If you are an Indian man or woman (particularly in the U. K.), it is difficult to find a compelling match who shares similar professional ambitions and cultural beliefs—unless, of course, you are looking for love on a traditional matrimonial website,” he added.
“They shared a similar frustration of how difficult it is to find someone of Indian descent on Match.com, Ok Cupid, Tinder and other dating platforms, but none of us had a desire to use more traditional matrimonial websites,” Patel recalled.
It was then that the idea for a new, revolutionary, and user-friendly dating app geared toward the savvy South Asian community was born.
