Yash and Benaisha’s love story, “My best friend introduced us over a conference call. I was a shy guy, while she’d come on the cover of Seventeen, so I was already smitten! When she wished me on FB on my birthday, we started talking & hit it off! We spoke about everything under the sun till 5 am every night! She talked & I listened. She asked & answered her own questions!
2 weeks later, I drunk called her saying ‘I think I like you.’ Thankfully, she felt the same & we went on our first date! It was a roller coaster after.
The down parts of the ride were majorly my doing. I was left scarred–I thought if my ex could hurt me, she’d too. In fact, after a few months, she messaged saying ‘I love you,’ I replied with ‘thanks, I’ll tell you when I feel the same’ I was that cautious.
Yash continued his story saying, “Unfortunately, because of these insecurities, I hurt her. But she never gave up on me. Even when it got ugly. 5 years later, I went to Boston to study. But we hadn’t fixed our issues so we became distant. When I returned, things reached a point where we broke up.
That’s when our relationship was really tested. We were apart for almost 2 years. She was in another serious relationship & I realized that I couldn’t be with anyone else!
She later said that she had prayed to God asking, If I was meant for her– then to let the other guy go.
I guess God listened because her ex broke up with her & that’s when I told her I wanted her back. She got her sign & finally gave me a chance!
She came to visit me in NYC & things fell into place. It was a fresh start, a clean slate. felt good to know that this was long term.
It was going to be our 10th anniversary of knowing each other this year. I knew she expected a proposal. Or she’d only propose! So I planned it better. A few days before that date, I took her to a secret spot in Malibu & stopped her for a photo. twirled her, got down on my knee & asked her to marry me. She responded saying ‘are you sure?’ Of course, I was– she’s always been the one!
So that’s how it took 10 years, of heartbreak, fights, chocolates & beautiful trips to get us to this point. But now that we’re here, none of that other stuff matters… forever’s lo
