Matrimony sites and dating apps may offer you an endless array of matches, but how do you know if you’re actually making any progress in your attempt to getting married? Is constantly worrying about it, progress? Does swiping 30 times a day count? How about going on two dates a month? Does any of this bring you closer to finding a life-partner?
At Marriage Broker Auntie, we understand that finding a life-partner can be challenging, intimidating, overwhelming and sometimes, exhausting. We have been through this journey end to end hundreds of times, so we understand what progress means. With our experience and insights, we provide a unique advisory service to enable you in making progress, and bringing you one step closer to finding love.
Started in 2013 as India’s first matrimonial advisory, we are proud to have helped hundreds of successful professionals across the globe in creating and realising their relationship aspirations.
Marriage Broker Auntie started in 2013. It began as a niche matchmaking service (hence, the name Marriage Broker Auntie). We used to connect interesting urban singles with like-minded people. By 2016, we were spending more time advising people on how to choose a partner rather than choosing one for them. So, we pivoted to being a full-time matrimonial advisory service.
We work with single professionals (previously married or not), and guide them in their relationship journey. We meet people at different stages of their relationship journeys – those who’ve never dated, those who are just coming out of a relationship, those who are actively dating, those who are in serious relationships and those who are in the process of choosing a partner through one of the many dating and matrimonial sites. We are able to serve clients across the world as all our work with them is done virtually.
We don many roles depending on our clients’ needs – listener, advisor, mentor and coach. Our primary focus is providing advisory and coaching services. We also occasionally organise events and introductions for our long-standing clients. We also produce monthly newsletters, blogs and courses where we share insights about love, dating, relationships, marriages and the markets they are traded on.
I am Priyanka Bharadwaj. I live in Bangalore. I grew up in a typical South-Indian middle-class home. I had a privileged upbringing with working parents who raised us to be independent women, gave us access to good education and the freedom to make our own choices.
I have a Bachelors in Engineering from MS Ramaiah Institute of Technology, Bangalore and a Masters in Business Administration from IESE Business School, Barcelona. I’ve spent a decade working in the corporate world with companies like Toyota, Amazon and Rocket Internet in various leadership roles – engineering, operations, strategy, category and product management.
I am an introvert, but I grew up around extroverts. I enjoy deep and intense conversations, the kind most people find exhausting. Human thought and behaviour has always fascinated me. A few summers ago, I almost got into Dan Ariely’s Behavioural Economics Research Lab at Duke University.
I got married when I was 23. None of my past relationships could’ve prepared me for marriage. I realised that there is very little literature normalising marriages for those who’ve never experienced it. Sharing my learnings and experiences with single friends became a personal mission. One such conversation led to building Marriage Broker Auntie. Over the last decade, I’ve had the privilege of helping hundreds of successful professionals across the world in building healthy relationships.
