Their Intentions Aligned and They Got Married. It was as Simple as That!
We hear all the time that opposites attract. However, this story is not about two opposite people. This is the story of two different people with one common intention — finding someone with whom they can marry and lead a happy life. In short, find a betterhalf. The role of common intention becomes so crucial when you are looking for your partner on matrimony platforms. Why? Well, you find different kinds of people over there; who are not genuine, who are there only for dating purposes, who don’t know when they want to get settled, etc.
So, it’s a blessing to find someone on such platforms who shares the same intention as you. Meet Rashi Jaisani and Rakesh Tirthani! Two blessed people found each other through Betterhalf.ai and now they are going to get married very soon. And what brought them closer? Well, their common intention is to find their life partner.
If we go to the root, Rashi and Rakesh found each other on the Internet despite living 30-min away from each other - Rashi lives in Dewar, while Rakesh lives in Indore, a 30-min drive from her place. However, this distance helped them later. Okay, okay, we know we are digressing.
Let’s start the story from the very start as Rashi told us. We got in touch with her to know everything about their story. And also so that we can share it with you guys!
Rashi started using Betterhalf somewhere around March or April 2021. She told us that she doesn’t remember it clearly. We asked if she remembered when she got a match with Rakesh. Well, how can she forget that! *wink emoji* Talking about it, she told us,
“I was using the Betterhalf but I wasn't very active on it. After a few months, I got a text message on the app - Hi! How’s everything going on? It was from Rakesh. I replied to his message and that’s how we started talking. Our conversation started with very formal things like what do we like, what do we do, and all. Once formalities went on the window, I told him clearly that I’m looking for a partner with whom I can marry. I asked him whether he is genuinely interested in marriage or if he’s here to date only. My approach was pretty straightforward as I was clear with my intention from the first day. Luckily, he was also looking for his life partner. So, our intentions aligned. We chatted there only for a few days. Then we spoke over the phone. And after a few calls, I think after 20-25 days of talking, we decided to meet.”
Once Rashi finished talking about her journey, we asked her about her first meeting and transition from online to in-person meeting. To which, she said,
“Honestly speaking, I didn't find any difference. I think the reason behind this is before we met, we spoke over the phone a lot. So, when we met, we didn't find any awkwardness or strange things between us. We talked about how we are as people, what kind of life we have lived, what kind of future we want and anything under the sun.
After our first meeting, we found that we enjoy each other's company a lot. So, we met a few more times after that. Then we thought that we would give time to each other and see if things go well. If everything goes well, we can continue. If it doesn't go well, it's okay. But we were clear about one thing that we will try to get to know each other more.
So, we kept meeting and dating for one month after our first meeting. During that time, we found out that we will be compatible with each other. So, I told my parents and he did the same. Then my parents went to his place to learn more about Rakesh. Once they came back, they said we can go ahead. After one month, we did the Roka ceremony and now we are going to get married on 21st December.”
Rashi was so engrossed in telling her stories to us that she almost forgot to tell us about her first meeting. And honestly speaking, we were so interested in listening to her that we also didn’t notice until she completed.
But then she continued talking about her first meeting.
‘Oh, yes! It was raining that day. We went on a Lunch date at the outskirts of Indore. So, everything was lovely. Before meeting, I was unsure about what kind of person I want to have in my life as my partner. But I was sure about one thing - I always wanted somebody who can be with me in any situation in life. When I met him, I found him very genuine and a good person by heart. That was the best quality to which I was attracted to.”
Rakesh proposed to Rashi after spending three months together. We wanted to know if she had any kind of prior expectations from him when he proposed to her. Sharing her experience, Rashi said,
“Rakesh proposed to me after three months into our relationship. I did not have any expectations. Let me tell you why. I also made accounts on other platforms as well but never met with anyone in person. I talked to a few guys over the phone too. But with Rakesh, I felt different. While talking to him, I felt that I could meet with him to understand better. He was the only person whom I met through a matrimony platform and it was Betterhalf.
I always knew that he was interested in me but I didn't know anything about the proposal. I think he wanted to be sure before proposing to me. And he wanted to make sure that I'm satisfied with everything I want. Like what kind of partner I want, what kind of life I want, what kind of things I want emotionally, financially, stability, career, etc. I'm a very ambitious and career-oriented person. So, I always wanted somebody who can support me in my career and not someone who wants to cut my wings. We started working together towards making a perfect relationship.
So, he took a long time while giving me my time to make the decision. Because it's about choosing a life partner and we don't do it everyday. We took our time in making that decision.”
As we said, Rashi and Rakesh are going to get married in December, 2021. When we asked her about the status of marriage preparations and what is that favorite thing about him, she told,
“We are so excited about the marriage. Preparation and everything else is done now. We are going to get married at Burhanpur which is his hometown.
My favorite thing about him is that he is always there for me. For any kind of stupidity, ups and downs in life, mood swings. Be it anything, he handles everything very gracefully. So, that is the best thing about him. He also loves me so much.”
For Rashi, marriage means when two people decide to be together in every ins and outs of life. Talking about her idea of marriage, she said,
“You can live a life alone but it becomes more meaningful with someone who understands you well. So, when you have a partner, it's important to give each other space and let them free as well. You take care of each other. You look after each other.”
We are elated that Rashi and Rakesh found each other through Betterhalf.ai. We wish them a delightful and healthy life ahead! May they always remain compatible with each other!
- With Love, For Love.
