This Couple Unlocked Their Relationship with the Key of Communication

Communication in a relationship is like a river. It's entertaining, feels good, and makes everyone comfortable around when thoughts and sentiments flow effortlessly between marital partners. However, when this river of communication goes through choppy flows, it could wreak chaos in people’ lives. Today, we would like you guys to meet Sayani and Rohan, a couple that truly understands that beating around the bush and sweeping things under the rug does more harm than good. For them, communication is everything. 


Very few people understand the worth of proper communication in a relationship; How it can unlock new unimaginable levels in their relationship. That’s why, when we got in touch with Sayani and Rohan to hear their story, we thought everyone should take a leaf out of their lovely book of relationship.


Although their story is so lovely that you don’t need bait to read it completely, we are giving one nonetheless - Sayani was the one to go down on one knee and propose to Rohan in one of the most romantic ways possible. Our first question to Sayani was about how she first met Rohan. When we asked this, we got to know that Sayani did not have to use the app for long, which is something that we, here at betterhalf, are pleased to hear about.


“One of my friends was already using it, and when I turned 30 one of my friends suggested it over other matrimony options as everywhere else parents are involved. I heard Betterhalf was a place where individuals get to know each other rather than parents involving themselves.


I installed it on the 25th of April and within four days, on the 29th, within four days, early in the morning at around 6 am, I swiped on his profile. And since he is an early riser too, he was awake at that time and that’s how we got started.”


Rohan has a quite similar experience with a lesser MFT (Match-Find-Time). Yes, we coined this term just now! He got matched with Sayani on the first day of using the app. 


Our immediate next question was about their initial interaction when we knew that they matched with each other so quickly. Speaking about their initial interaction, Sayani said, 


“On his profile, the thing that caught my attention was that he loved to travel. So I asked him about his next travel destination. And that’s how our conversation started. The platform was pretty great because it allowed us to get to know a little about each other before we even started talking. We realised we had a lot in common. From liking the same TV series to both having the intention of finding someone to settle down with - the list of things we had in common went on and on.”

 

About the same thing, Rohan told us, “We talked about why we were on the app, what are our expectations as in what would happen if you find someone here and all other things of that sort. Soon, we exchanged numbers, and the rest fell into place.” 


We so badly want Rohan to say ‘and the rest is history’ in the end. :P


Once they exchanged their numbers, they didn’t jump the gun and decided to take things slowly. They initially texted each other for three days and finally got on a phone call with each other. Talking about it, Sayani said, 


“We didn't realise how much time had gone by until we were four hours into the phone call. We never felt we were talking to someone whom we met a few days ago. We talked like we had known each other for ages.” 


When we asked Sayani and Rohan about their experience of transitioning from online to offline - When they decided to meet for the first time - Sayani told us how they went for a dinner date. Talking about how she was able to see him for the first time, she said, 


“While talking online, we would get on video calls and have movie dates. But when we finally met in person, we went out for dinner. And honestly speaking, we had quite an amazing time. We wouldn’t meet each other for two entire months because of the pandemic. When we finally met the person I saw online, the profile was the same person I met. There was no difference. He was a complete gentleman - holding the door open, bringing flowers and all those kinds of things. There were no false hopes, and I got exactly what I saw.”


Rohan’s transition experience was different from Sayani's. While sharing the same, he said, 


“When we finally met, it did not feel like I was meeting a stranger. And it was because of the time we spent together online. It was quite natural. It felt like I was meeting someone I always knew. We had spoken at great lengths about what kind of person I was and what kind of person she was. The meeting was not awkward at all, if anything I only had butterflies in my stomach because I was meeting someone I had grown very fond of. I had already deleted the app because I knew Sayani was the one for me.” 


The last sentence - Awwwwwwwww!!!


Apart from top-notch communication, little things two people like in each other lay the foundation of a strong relationship. When we asked Sayani about what is that one thing she like most about Rohan, she said, 


“I think I'm the sort of person who gets impressed by people who focus on the little things. During our first meeting, I was surprised that he remembered all the little things I had told him over the phone - things like my favorite color, my playlist, my favorite song, what I’m allergic to. He was able to focus on the small things I told him months ago and still remember them when we met. It wouldn’t be an overstatement if I say that this thing made me fall for him. ”


Our next question to Sayani and Rohan was about what makes them work as a couple. Because relationships between different people run on different things. If you’d noticed the title of this story, you would’ve guessed it by now. Yes, communication was that thing for Sayani and Rohan. Speaking about their relationship’s fuel, she said,  


“What makes us work as a couple is that we are great at communicating. I’m not going to beat around the bush, and neither is he. We also listen to each other with our fullest attention. If he is going through something then I will make sure to be there and listen, and he would do the same for me.”


Continuing from where she left, Rohan added a little more, “She has the kindest of souls I’ve ever come across. Always listens to me, and that is something I admire in her. We do not like to sweep things under the carpet, if there is something to discuss, we talk about it, we have a very carefree attitude towards life, we're in a good place, we have good families and we both love traveling. Even if we don’t share the same passions, she gets what it's like to have a passion. And if someone understands why you’re staying up till 4 am to watch a game, well then that person surely gets you”


True, Rohan. Very True!! We get you. Also, brace yourself. We are entering into the ‘bait’ part. :P

Rohan shared with Sayani that in his previous relationship, he was the one who had to propose to her partner back then. So, something like a proposal had never happened to him. At that moment only, Sayani had made up her mind that if everything goes well and she would feel that he is the one, it would be her who would propose. During their trip to Nashik, Sayani had planned everything out even before they left - from what ring she would use to the time and place of the proposal. 


They went to a spot high up which had a nice view. When they reached there, she went down on one knee and said “The first thing I want to see in the morning is your face, and the last thing I want to see is your face too. So will you be my forever goodmorning and goodnight?” 


She pulled out a ring. Rohan said YES. For Sayani, life is a journey, a long trip that you have to take anyway. And having the right partner to make memories for a lifetime can make this journey something worth packing your bags for. 


Well, we could not end our conversation with a better note than this. We would like to wish Sayani and Rohan a life loaded with lots of happiness and health. We don’t think we need to wish for them to have lots of lovely conversations. They will do that anyway. <3


- With Love, for Love.
