They Found Themselves in Each Other and Got Married
Maybe jodies are made in heaven but they meet at Betterhalf. Can you imagine how deeply we believe in love? And how could we not? With so many adorable couples around us who found love at Betterhalf and tied the knots, we just couldn’t help falling in love with them.
One such couple is Archana Parshuram and Shridhar Patnaik who met at Betterhalf and slowly fell in love. They are truly a match made in heaven. To put it in simple words, their love story is no less than a Bollywood love story. When we say Bollywood, we hope you know the actor and actress don’t end up together easily, there is always a plot twist that creates hurdles for the lead actors. Well! Our couple also had to face some challenges but as we say, love always wins in the end.
To know more about their journey, the team at Betterhalf decided to get in touch with the couple and had a fun and interesting conversation with them. The best part of the conversation was how happy they sounded. They had a lot to share and we were all ears. We are sharing the same with you in this article.
As we have asked all other couples, our first question was when and how they downloaded the Betterhalf app.
Archana came to know about Betterhalf through one of her friends and she suggested Archana to create a profile on the platform. Following the advice of her friend, Archana joined the app in September. While Shridhar got introduced to Betterhalf through an advertisement and joined it in August 2020. We know Archana will always be grateful to her friend for introducing her to Betterhalf. Archana added, “I was looking for someone serious about marriage and ready to settle down. I came across Shridhar’s profile and it stood out to me. That’s when I sent him a connection request. “I still remember the date when we connected, 24 Sept 2020. I don’t expect the same from me.”, Archana added while laughing.
We are always curious about the first messages, the first chats which bring two people together. So, we asked Archana about their first exchange of messages.
Like every couple, their first message was, “Hi.” The interesting thing is the text was sent by Archana. She was the one to send the connection request and after Shridhar accepted the request, she initiated the conversation.“Because it was the very beginning of our conversation, we weren’t texting back and forth. We took 24 hours to reply to each message. Yeah! I know it sounds crazy.”, Archana said.
While talking, we also got to know that Archana and Shridhar are very similar. Archana said, “Our conversation went smooth, it felt like we’ve known each other for a long time. No extra efforts were put in to continue the conversation, it just went smoothly and naturally.”
Their third phone call went on for five hours and at that moment they realized that what they’ve is real, and are ready to take the next step. The couple decided to meet on 30 Oct 2020. Archana spilled the beans of her first meeting.
“Even before meeting me, Shridhar was very sure of me. He made up his mind to marry me but I was quite skeptical. Phone conversation and everything was good but still, I wanted to know him more. I had a 101 checklist of what type of a man I want to marry, I just wanted to be very sure. Although on the first meeting, after spending time with him I knew this is the man for me but I didn’t tell him. After two days of the meeting, I finally broke the news to him that he is the one for me and I’m ready to tie the knots.”
We all have something that we love about our partners, something that makes us their fans and we love them a little extra for it. Archana is a fan of Shridhar’s calm and chilled-out attitude. She said, “ Whenever I’m stressed or disturbed over something, he always says, “Chill Archu Chill!” Even if there is a house on fire next to ours, you will find sitting all peacefully and calm. This is how he is and I love this thing about him.”
Every love story has some challenges and this couple had a little tough time convincing their families. Archana’s family was a little in disagreement with her decision as she met the guy on an online matrimony app. But after Shridhar met her family and after two or three conversations and sessions of convincing them, her parents agreed. Shridhar won their hearts and they were happy to marry their daughter to him.
On the other hand, Shridhar’s family took a lot of time to accept their relationship. But with passing time even they saw the compatibility between the two of them and said yes. With the blessing of both the families, their wedding date was fixed as 27 March 2022.
The couple got married in South Indian style in Hyderabad. Archana said, “Those were two fun days, we enjoyed them a lot.”
At last, we asked them about their experience on Betterhalf. Archana added, “Betterhalf has helped me get what I’ve always wanted, my soulmate. I’m just thankful to the team.”
We had a great time talking to the couple. We just wish them all the best for the life ahead as husband and wife. If you also want to be a part of our success stories, then sign up on Betterhalf and find your life partner.
