They also believe in karma, and that their karma will dictate the fortune they enjoy in the next life.
It is the only thing that they believe gets carried on with them from one life to the next, so you know you will get a loving girlfriend who will treat you well and kindly, but at the same time they are going to expect the same from you.
However there are some points to remember about dating a Hindu girlfriend.
The first is that there is a strong possibility that she will not want to marry outside of her religion.
Colin told me how he played on straight soccer teams around the city and only started having sex with men two years before. In other words, it wasn't only his youth and disgusting apartment that told me, "Leave ASAP." Colin, like me, studied philosophy at university He liked to argue in that Ivy-league, chess club kind of way -- "tropes"-this, "individuate"-that, "Derrida ..blah blah." But he managed to do it in a sexy, masculine way ... He cut his own hair (badly) and his fashion consisted of sweaty soccer t-shirts and fraying pants. Which somehow led to another 30 minutes of verbally sparring with him about Emmanuel Kant and how to pronounce "stichomythia." He finally led me to his "section" of the apartment, an alcove with a slab of rotting cotton and wire that stood in for his bed.
After an hour of getting to know each other I finally asked directly, "Will I be seeing you naked at any point? When it comes to casual sex, I have my go-to activities, all which can be accomplished nicely within 20 minutes or less, but with Colin sex was slow, sweet, with lots of touching, laughter and commentary about what he liked and didn't like.
If they truly love you then this might be something they are willing to risk, but you need to recognise the kind of commitment on their part that this would require, and will have to decide whether this is something you are willing to put them through.
Another is that your girlfriend may be vegetarian which is a common aspect of Hinduism.
She also loves to read and explore new information and write on interesting topics.
If this is the case then you should treat her specially as you would any partner with different dietary requirements.
Of course remember this when cooking her meals and taking her out to restaurants, and try to be thoughtful about what you eat too.
This is a common problem for non Hindus who want to date Hindu women.
While some families will be more relaxed than others, the majority daughters will feel that they must marry within their religion in order to avoid being 'cut off' by their family and to please their parents.
This is a sexual massage, but one that is highly loving and gentle, and one that will not necessarily focus on the end goal of achieving orgasm.
