It turns out the outspoken and "stubborn," breakout star of Netflix's controversial new reality dating show " Indian Matchmaking" is a romantic after all.
She spoke with us recently by phone about dating and relationships. The hit show itself is about a matchmaker named Sima who helps arrange a marriage—a traditional form of courtship and matrimony in India—for clients all over the world.
Every episode follows a mix of Indians and Indian-Americans as they share their romantic hopes and dreams with Sima. They're then matched up with other hopefuls and go out on dates.
Multiple singles are set up with other singles. But Aparna is, without a doubt, the stand-out.
She's a feisty, successful woman who loves traveling and does not suffer fools. Perhaps what's most admirable about watching Aparna on the show was that she's not the average woman looking for a companion — she has a full understanding of who she is and what she wants and doesn't want just anybody.
But it's been fun exploring with them and checking out places in Houston," Aparna said.
I was terrible at throwing axes, but it was actually a lot of fun. The goat yoga was great as well.

While family members and the matchmaker told her she should be a bit more flexible, she knew exactly what she had in mind. According to Sima, she's a stubborn, picky woman whose expectations can leave her lonely.
But that same picky-ness, described as "stubborn" by Sima, is exactly what drew her to me. Aparna's mother was in an arranged marriage, and it resulted in divorce.
But Aparna doesn't let her mother's divorce skew her view on dating and relationships. Aparna was determined to find someone she really admires who isn't funny. The show, "Indian Matchmaking," places an emphasis on the importance of arranged marriages in the Indian community and shows how traditional matchmaking can be pertinent even in today's digital dating age.
For Aparna, she had to separate her flexibility from her non-negotiables. And when I say I don't want to change I mean I don't want to change my political leanings and I change the way I view family and I don't want to change the things that are so inherent in who I am at this age," Aparna said.
