Aneshya and Sanjay
How We Met
Love is about making it work and realizing what you’re fighting for. You cant waste time trying ‘to be right’ or ‘prove your point’ because even if you win, the relationship loses. I knew who he was way before we ever started talking. We had plenty of mutual friends and knew each other socially, but had never spoken to one another. It wasn’t until he mustered up the courage to approach me on Instagram, that I realized that this was something. I found myself drawn towards him and when we started texting, we had instant chemistry. We messaged back and forth for a week, made plans for our first official date and have been pretty much inseparable ever since. We didn’t have the best luck with relationships in the past, but everything with each other has been so easy and natural. He is hands down the greatest man I’ve ever known and the absolute love of my life.
How He Asked
It happened while I was on a vacation with my girls in Bali. On our last day there, I knew he was coming into town with his family, so I thought nothing of it when he asked me to lunch before I left that evening. Fast forward a little and we’re at the restaurant – I was starving and could barely wrap my mind around his nerves as his “U know I love you right?” was met with a half-hearted “I know, but I’m hungry”. He then led me up to the roof, to look at the view.
Little did I know, the cameras were already in place up there waiting to capture the moment. The moment we would go from him and I, to us. He said, “Aneshya, there isn’t anyone I’d rather spend my life with. Will you marry me?” And I said, “Yes!”
