Her Name Means Someone Who Cannot be Won Over. But He Had Other Ideas
The abundance of matrimony and dating apps at our disposal hasn’t solved the trust issues that people have about them. A large portion of people on these platforms still can’t believe the possibility that they could find their life partner through these apps. They cannot think in their wildest dreams that matrimony platforms can help them connect with their betterhalf, without them going anywhere.
Avijita was one of those persons who had the same idea about these platforms. Little did she know that she would find her life partner at Betterhalf.ai, one of the leading matrimony platforms, only. Due to Avijita’s experience, she always thought it is a rare phenomenon to find your life partner through the internet. However, after meeting Sohil on Betterhalf.ai, she had to change her mind. Despite the meaning of Avijita’s name - One who cannot be won or conquered over - Sohil won her over with his honesty and social skills. The connection between them was so strong that they decided to talk to their parents about marriage, within 15 days of connecting.
Avijita and Sohil got engaged on 19 July 2021, and a few months after, on 11 December, they tied the sacred knot in Sohil’s hometown. We thought who could be better than Avijita herself to hear the little things about their story! So, we got in touch with her and had a beautiful conversation. We’re sharing a few excerpts so that more people can believe the power of matrimony platforms.
If you’ve been reading our success stories, you must know by now how our first question. :P
Yes, it’s about when did they first join Betterhalf, how they got to know about the app, and how they connected with their life partner. When we asked this to Avijita, she replied,
“I'm not sure about the exact date but I guess it was somewhere in March 2021. That’s when we started talking to each other. I was on the Betterhalf app like any other day, and when his request came, I was in two minds whether to accept it or not! But then I decided to accept it. And after connecting, one day Sohil was having an off from his office, and that day we talked a lot and ended up exchanging our numbers.”
Avijita also told us how Sohil was the one who was getting to know her during their initial conversation.
“During our initial conversation, he was the one who was getting to know me only. We didn't think about the possibility that one day we'd be going to marry each other. So, our initial conversations were only about knowing each other.”
So, how was the conversation once you guys exchanged numbers? - We asked Avijita as soon as she finished with her answer.
“As per my experience, it's quite rare to find a decent person on matrimonial platforms. So, finding Sohil was a new thing for me at Betterhalf. Once we exchanged our numbers, we started chatting on WhatsApp. And then later, once we were comfortable with each other, we switched to calling and then, Video Call.”
It is quite natural that when two people start spending time with each other, they get to know each other better. Avijita and Sohil weren’t different. Once they started talking more and more, they got to know many different things about each other. Recalling the time when they started talking more, Avijita said,
“Both of us come from different regions of India. He is from Mumbai, while I live in Chandigarh. Because of this, we also had a few cultural differences. So, as I told you, our initial conversations revolved around him knowing me - my preferences, what type of person I am, my likes & dislikes, etc. Sohil is in the Sales profession, and he talks to so many people all the time. So, I was thinking like he's silently judging me all this while about what kind of person I am. But he wanted to listen to all the things I wanted to say. Initially, I wasn't very serious about it. But later on, when he showed more interest, and I felt that things are getting serious now, I was also interested. I also felt that he is a serious kind of man and not those flingy types. Also, our conversations were quite regular. It wasn't like one day we talked, and then we didn't. Our conversations increased with each day. During this time, I also started liking him.
I said to him that if you want to take it forward and if you're serious about it, you should talk to your parents. And I will do the same. Then he said that let's meet first and then we'll see.
Since both of us live in different cities, he came over to my place, in Chandigarh from Mumbai, to meet me. (with laughs) He directly came to my home and met my parents, which was surprising because people don't do this kind of thing normally. But this also assured me that he's quite serious about our relationship.”
In every relationship, every couple goes through a moment when they are sure about the fact that both of them are meant for each other. It is a special moment and to know about such moments is always a lovely thing. When we asked about the same to Avijita, she said,
“Well, everything only took 15 days. And I feel very fortunate about it. The reason behind our connection is that when we started talking to each other, we had so many things in common - our likes, thought processes, dreams, and so many other things. Everything was matching with each other. So, everything happened automatically.”
Tell us, can there be a more beautiful feeling than revisiting the first in-person meeting with the person you’re going to marry or have married! Well, chances are quite low. First meetings are always something out of this world. Telling us about her reaction to meeting Sohil for the first time, Avijita said,
“Before we met in person, we used to do video calls. But, as you know, video calls do not have much clarity like how someone looks and all. So, this one thing about his looks was in my mind. But when I met him for the first time, I found him very decent. He is one of those rare gentlemen who know how to respect women. Apart from this, he is also a family person. Also, when he came to my home, he knew how to respect my parents and family.”
When we asked Avijita about her favorite thing about Sohil, she told us about his caring and empathetic nature.
“He takes care of me very well. He is very caring by nature. I am fumbling because I cannot explain the same in words. He always puts himself in other people's shoes; to see situations from their perspective which helps him in caring for others as well. He also values people around him. And, most importantly, he understands the value of relationships.”
You must be thinking that we haven’t asked her about the marriage. Well, don't be disappointed! On asking about how the wedding went, Avijita first told us that she never thought, even in her wildest dreams, that she would meet her life partner on a matrimony or dating platform.
Well, Avijita, the pleasure is all ours! :)
“Let me tell you one thing that I never thought of meeting my life partner through matrimony platforms. Not in my wildest dreams! But here I am, married! So, it was a real surprise for me. I never expected that I would get a partner this way. But now I think, all of this was written in our destiny. And it's been good to be with Sohil.”
Before we ended our conversation, we asked Avijita what she feels about the term ‘marriage’. Everyone has different views about the meaning of marriage. And it’s fascinating to know different perspectives of people about this term. For Avijita, Marriage is a special bond between two people where both of you promise to share the good and bad phases of life till the end of your life. And that’s what makes marriage special! :)
Well, Avijita, we cannot argue with the truth, and you’ve spoken so much of it in a single sentence! We wish Avijita and Sohil a happy, healthy, and peaceful life ahead! May they always live happily together! We sincerely hope that this story will help more people trust matrimony platforms and dare to take a giant leap in finding their life partners through Betterhalf.ai. You can sign up now! Cheers!
- With Love, for Love <3
