Henna & Hitesh
Within the first couple months, we progressed rapidly in our relationship, mostly do to our constant communication and open nature. Although she had Dil Mil since October when it came out, she wasn’t taking it too seriously. And I downloaded the app in late March after a friend told me about it, but like her, wasn’t expecting anything real from it. The app was just growing around Oklahoma, so the girls that popped up started to be further and further away. To be more specific, over 1,400 miles away in California. Lucky for me, she lowered her height cut-off by two inches a few days before we matched, and I swooped in. Neither of us were dating just to date, we shared a common end goal and have been pursuing it full force. Once again, a kind of weird, unconventional approach. How could we be so sure? It was key moments along the way that reinforced it, like dropping the “L” bomb over Facetime before we even met in person. No topic was off limits, I’m pretty positive we covered marriage goals, how many children we wanted, our desires to take care of our parents, where we could live, and so on way too early. When we started discussing when we could meet in person, I jokingly said I wasn’t going to say anything the first time I saw her, rather just kiss her. While she agreed at first, a few weeks later, she backtracked to a hug. I was able to settle at a hug then kiss. After a trip to Oregon and Hawaii during my summer break, I flew into LA to meet up with her and stuck true to the promise. As I held her in my arms on our first embrace, I knew I was never letting her go.
