Love turns 8!
I have never believed in love at first sight. For me, love is something that happens over a period of time and first impressions are not always the last impressions. Even the concept of falling in love is something that I cannot relate to. Love makes each one of us a better person every single day and we rise in love, we don’t fall!
It was 8 years back when we met for the first time, and I wanted to dedicate this post to VT for bringing out the best in me every single day. When I look back I see that I am a different person today. Our story has been funny and serious at the same time. It had its ups and downs, laughter, tears, and survived a long distance relationship as well. (~1100kms). Skype was our savior!
On record: I am almost 5’ and he is almost 6’.So I’m not too short! I’m just okay! After all world’s best things come in small packages.
Jab We Met : A lot of people think we met in college or worked together. Nope! We were just destined to meet. We have never shared an alma mater or a place of work.
Shopping: I shop with VT, without VT, with family, with friends, offline, online, in air – and I know he can’t help it! I ensure I make up for his share too!
Outdoors: I am a sport and he loves sports! Yes, you got it right! There’s a pun.
Workouts: Gym & Yoga! We have our choices – two extremes.
Early Morning: He knows I can’t get up on my own. My tea is the best part of my day! Glad he does it!
What’s for dinner today? I am the one who enjoys eating and we both don’t cook! He likes cabbage and I prefer chicken! We go out or survive on maggi if our cook calls it a day.
Hosts! We are great hosts. Just let us know in advance you are coming and I will make our place presentable. I can delegate cleaning chores. It’s not my cup of tea.
4 States: I am from Uttar Pradesh and he is from Haryana. We met in Karnataka and got married in New Delhi.
Travel: We enjoy seeing various places. He wants to maximize time and I maximize pictures!
Gifts: If I ever get a surprise gift, I would be shocked! The score is 2 in 8 YEARS – both in year 1 of dating!
I can go on and on and may be this list will change in future. They say love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired. Love found or lost is plain simple love. It should never be about changing the other person; it should be about accepting the other person the way he/she is. It is about letting go yet holding close! Yes, that’s love for me!
