The moment I saw her sitting there waiting for me, my fear subsided.She was as warm and spunky and as real as she had portrayed herself to be. We got married in May of 2014 and are planning to buy our first house so we can start a family.And being human beings we are no different from this animal instinct. It’s because once I dreamt a life with her and now that dream is shattered.But given our current society we are supposed to be better than our chimpanzee brothers or sisters (are we really?! Being an Indian and especially belonging from a family where everyone married through Love marriage and lived happily ever after, that puts a lot of expectation and unrealistic standard in your life.I was nervous because I didn’t know if my expectations of her were tainted by the great conversations we shared over email and phone.I was worried that either of us would be disappointed.And then came a time when she broke apart and left.
Thankfully, my friends were encouraging and helped me put my profile together.Online dating has changed my outlook on where love can be found.I definitely hit the jackpot with Rebecca and feel like the luckiest guy on the planet.First we chatted online, then we talked on the phone and then we decided to meet for dinner.
I was surprised that I didn’t first insist on grabbing a cup of tea. I got confirmation the moment I saw him in person that we were meant to be together. I not only felt safe with him, but I felt invigorated to meet a man with so much class. I never dreamt to find someone with whom I would share so many things together. We got married in May of 2014 and are currently looking for a house to buy so we can start a family.I’m pretty practical and grounded and so I wanted to explore and see where this would take me.
