Archie & Vivek: It All Started With A Blind Date

The first time Vivek and I met was on a blind date set up at corner bistro back in 2012. The date however didn’t go as well as expected. With very little to converse and the aawkward silences being nerve wrecking, we went our separate ways, not to contact each other for another 5 years. Destiny however had something else in store for us! Something Special 🙂

In Aug 2017, Vivek saw a photo of mine on a friend’s social media account and decided to give it another try. When he first contacted me, I was skeptical at first considering the fact that our first date didn’t go as well as we hoped, but then thought, WHY NOT?

The phone conversations began thereafter and it din’t take much long to go on our first official date at La Salumeria restaurant on Sept 3rd 2017 (Wow, I actually remember  the date). The dinner went exceedingly well, the conversations flowed seamlessly, the food was exceptional, the suited hot guy with me; in short  made it “The Perfect Date”. 

From there on, one thing led to another and we eventually fell in love and decided to get married. 

He says he knew instantly I was the one for him from the moment he saw my picture (Love at First Picture!). As for me, I knew he was my man from our ‘medieval ages’ conversations (hook me up with Lord of the Rings anytime!!!)

What makes our story special is that we were right for each other 6 years ago, but it was not the right time.It became our unexpected phenomenal love story 🙂 #phenomenaleveryday! ~ Archie
