Today’s love story on How We Met is about a couple and their journey from childhood friends to adult sweethearts. Here it goes:
Even though only a few years have passed, but for most of us it feels like our childhood is ages away from us. All the feelings that we remember now of our childhood, can be mere figments of a child’s imagination.
How often do you hear someone telling you about their love tale which goes back to when they were only children?
Jyoti, first met Rohit Shaw, at her uncle’s wedding. She was only five and he was seven years old. Their parents were really close to each other and that led them to be friends.
She still remembers how she loved playing with him. She remembers how they used to scream in delight, while chasing each other. In addition to this, they used to go to the same school, took the same school bus and were taught by the same private tutor.
Years went by and they grew apart. They both got busy in their everyday routines but even after all that time, she had never forgotten about him. She used to think about him, every single day. There was a corner inside her that always belonged to him.
It’s true when they say that destiny and your choice intertwines with each other. After almost 17 years, while she was on a wedding, they met again! Something unnerved her – he was a completely different guy. Older, yes, but he kept calm and cool in trying situations. He was warm, considerate, loving and sweet to everyone. He was a complete gentleman now. How could she talk to someone who was so composed and pleasant? What girl wouldn’t want a guy like that?
The thought that she might not be sufficient for him, was killing her from the inside. He was the most good looking guy, at the wedding, at-least that’s how she felt.
Later that night, they started talking to each other and eventually ended up exchanging numbers, that very night. She could barely keep her joy. Finally, their friendship was going somewhere. They were beginning to lay the foundations of the fairy tale that Jyoti always dreamed of.
His regard and consideration towards her, made her fall even harder for him. And one day, she mustered up all her courage and admitted her feelings that she had been holding in for so long. It turned out that he too felt the same way about her.
They got engaged last month and their wedding is due on 12th of February.
Indeed we don’t meet people by accident, they are meant to cross our path for a reason; while we sleep and dream, destiny plans the next move on our part.
