Sunil Hiranandani, founder, insists that Sirf Coffee is not an online-dating service."It is about getting to know a client on a personal level," says Hiranandani.

"A user directly meets a hand-picked date over a cup of coffee (or cocktail), and get to know them in person, as opposed to online."Unlike online dating sites in the West, where there typically is a lot of interaction between people paired by computers until they actually meet, Indian sites seem keen to offer a boutique service of hand picking people to meet in person, instead of having to get to know each other through a computer screen.

The catch is that you can't use the site just to meet people online - if you miss three Footloose events in a row, then your membership is revoked.Indians might have a firm grasp on the idea of online matrimonial websites, but dating on the other hand is not something that a lot of people are comfortable doing, or even talking about, and the country doesn't really have many online dating sites.That's something that is changing and today you have a lot of different options.(Also see: Beyond the norm: Matrimony sites that focus on small groups reap big benefits)Varsha Agnihotri came up with the idea of starting Footloose No More four years ago, when she was at a Holi party.Another Indian dating site is Truly Madly, whose co-founder, Rahul Kumar, says the website is a modern-day matchmaking service that relies on "scientific methods" to match people."The website works on a social algorithm to connect likeminded individuals who are looking for serious relationships," says Kumar."The algorithm is based on an exhaustive research conducted by a team of psychologists who have derived a set of personality attributes responsible for a long term, successful relationship.
