My sister and best friend got me registered on the matrimonial site, Shaadi.com. Since, my first relationship didn’t work out through Shaadi.com, I wasn’t interested in going ahead the second time. But, my sister and friend continued scanning profiles on the site and finally came across Abrar. They expressed interest in him and in a couple of days he reverted back.
That was the first time I saw his picture and found him pretty cute. Apart from his looks, what attracted me to his profile was his location. He was living in California and my dad and brother live in California too, so i was really happy. We exchanged a few emails the next day, and the first time we spoke over the phone was on July 4, 2010. We got along well and ended up talking for nearly 6 hours. This went on for a couple of months.
He finally decided to fly down to Houston two weeks later to see me. I also got him introduced to my mom, sister and brother-in-law. After flying back to California, he met my dad and brother too. He made another trip to Houston after a couple of months, and a month later his sister and mom came down to meet me and my family. Our families were happy with our pair and our marriage date was soon finalized on May 28, 2011. Things have been going great since then.
Thank you Shaadi.com for bringing us together!
