"My friend Sarah is white and we're both around the same age and single," she says.

"Our first speed dating event four years ago in London attracted over 150 professional Asian singles.
We went on to organise events in bars and restaurants in other cities including Birmingham and Manchester." But some online dating sites reveal the extent of the problem Asian women face, with great emphasis on appearance, and in particular, complexion.
Many young British Asian women, be they Muslim, Sikh or Hindu, are struggling to find a life partner.
Alongside their white peers they have delayed marriage, putting education and careers first.
One website offers a drop-down menu of skin shades.
It can be successful and some do meet the man or woman of their dreams in their mother's living room over a nice cup of tea.
However, a parent's idea of a suitable boy or girl can of course be very different to what their offspring has in mind.
We aim to run regular free networking and speed dating events with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for Hindu, Jain and Sikh singles.
Since when did skin shade, religion and the prospect of living with your in-laws become a concern for educated, career women looking for Mr Right?
