How We Met
Being focused on school and work, the future bride, Kruti, was never invested in dating. After working for two years in the retirement area in Florida and moving to Tampa, Florida, Kruti decided to be serious about dating. Nishant, the future groom, became frustrated with dating as well and invested in online dating. Kruti was in New Jersey at a cousin’s wedding at the time, and Nishant was passing through Orlando, Florida. They both swiped right on an online dating app for South Asians called Dil Mil. They began to message each other immediately. Upon returning Tampa, Florida, Kruti and Nishant, in Houston, Texas, talked on the phone for about two hours Sunday upon their trips.
They began to facetime morning and at night, sometimes lasting until 2:00 -3:00 AM. Upon communicating for about a month, Nishant visited Kruti in Tampa, Florida. For their first date weekend, they went to Cooper’s Hawk Wine Tasting, Ulele for dinner, with a fun evening event the next day on a boat ride on the beach. After their first weekend together in Florida, the continued to date and travel and visit each other. Kruti visiting Nishant in Houston, Texas, for the first time was during Hurricane Harvey. She was thinking that it rains in Florida all the time; how bad could it be in Texas? Little did she know she would be stuck in Houston for 5 days! They bonded during the week and made food out of beer and wine and played games at home and watched Narcos. Kruti returned safely to Tampa, Fl, and their long-distance relationship continued to blossom and flourish.
