I think the post was a bit misleading - there is no specific girl in the picture yet. We're still looking for potential candidates. For me, its just another way to meet girls, where it's understood what the purpose is.
And about the tight leash - its a little painful how ironic it is. While growing up, my parents were quite strict. But now they actually admit it may have been a bit too harsh of them, I think they may have mellowed after these years and also after seeing how other families and society have evolved and become a little more liberal in today's age in our country. But I still think they did the best they could as parents.
