It all began sometime in July 2003 when I was surfing the internet and suddenly an ad banner caught my attention. It was Shaadi.com and I thought why not give it a try? Since I wanted to study in the US, I was looking for a match settled abroad. I wasn’t sure if I could go with the newspaper classified ads which gave no time for communication or to know the opposite person. So Shaadi.com proved to be an answer to my prayers. Barely 24 hours after I had registered on the website, I started receiving interests. In fact, I recieved Vinay’s contact within a week. I found his profile pretty interesting, as he was well-educated and settled. So, I decided to exchange mails and voila, he turned out to be the guy of my dreams. The best part was we shared a lot in common.
In just a few weeks, I was quite sure that he’s the one for me. We continued chatting, so that we could get to know each other much better and soon realised that we were in love. Finally, we met up in February, 2004 and by then we knew each other pretty well. Our parents then got involved and we were soon engaged. We tied the knot in May, 2004. Now its been seven years of blissful togetherness and we’re a happy couple.
I would like to thank Shaadi.com for making it all possible. Keep up the good work!
