A Second Chance At Love

Unlike most couples, my ex and I had broken up (mutually) on a good note. We convinced ourselves that would meet again when the time comes. After 3 years of us being apart, he visited my city for some work and he gave me a call asking if we could meet up. I was in the middle of moving out but it would be rude on my part to have not met him while he was here. I mean, what could possibly go wrong? We had been seeing other people and this meeting was just going to be super casual. However, after meeting him, I had a change of heart. Our conversations were light and delightful! He later told me that he needed a house to crash for a few days, without putting much thought, I offered him to stay at mine. From the time he entered my house, my mind started playing flashbacks of all our happy memories on loop: our first trip to Goa, him introducing me to his mother, eating pork sorpotel for the first time - all of it! In the three days that he stayed with me, he helped me move out, and on the last night, before he left, we couldn’t help but address the elephant in the room. I asked him if he wanted to give us another try. My eyes lit up when he said, “I have been thinking about it too!” He was leaving the next morning and I knew our efforts had to double if we were going to save this relationship. We just completed 3 years on November 4th and are still going strong! *touchwood*

Love Makes Everything Possible.

One of the most worthy things in life to fight for is love. Our 5-year relationship was torn by my family because he belonged to a different religion. My mother even sent me abroad to study in the hopes that I would forget him and start on a clean slate. I did not. Even though she deactivated my number and forced me to delete my FB account, that did not stop me from calling him from a payphone. What touched me the most is that he did not give up either. Sure, the distance was an obstacle, but we struggled through it. When our families learned about our secret relationship, they grew furious! There was a showdown at home and my boyfriend faced the brunt of it all. He got slapped, name called and what not! That's when I threatened my family by telling them that I won't be coming home if they laid a finger on him ever again. I also told them that I wouldn't marry anyone but him because he's one in a million. It took them two long months for it to sink in and finally, they reached out to his family to ask the boy's hand in marriage for me. We are happily married today. Even though my parents don't wholeheartedly approve, love conquers all. 

The Happily Ever After

Our love story was one for the ages- it was that entire Bollywood drama of girl meets boy (and his dog) and immediately falls in love with him (and his furry best friend). We were inseparable for the first two years almost living together and spending each waking moment with each other. Of course, I thought that he’s the one. But I was only in college, little did I know that there’s a whole life out of the four walls of our university waiting for us. We started working and my job took me to Mumbai. At first, we didn’t think anything could come between us- love conquers all. I guess love hadn’t met the perils of a long-distance relationship. I couldn’t give time to him and had to build a life for myself in a new city where I knew no one. At that time I just had my career on my mind - I had to make it big and nothing else mattered. I lost friends because I didn’t have time to give them, I distanced myself from my family because I couldn’t keep up with them and eventually, I lost him too. For a few months, I justified all the sacrifices I had made because it was for a brighter future but somehow my interest in work and life also reduced. Slowly I realised I was spiralling and having a nervous breakdown. I left Mumbai and moved back with my family and started taking one day at a time. I got back into the dating zone and got my heart broken by many boys- some friend-zoned me, some cheated on me and some just didn’t want to commit. That’s when he came back into my life and this time we took baby steps together. We became friends, became best friends and finally started dating again. Within a couple of months, we knew that this is it and decided to tie the knot. Our wedding is in twenty days and I’ve never been more excited or more nervous about anything in my life!
