How We Met

Murtaza and I have been dating for 5 years now. We met in our community’s religious education school as co-instructors and became good friends. It was in the second last week of 2015 when he caught me surprisingly during our regular conversation and asked me to be his girlfriend and I said NO!! It took him 2 weeks of cute efforts and finally on the December 21st, 2015, he successfully managed to change my ‘No’ to a ‘Yes’ and we have been together ever since! I knew since then that Murtaza was going to be the man I’d marry and I couldn’t have pictured a better proposal with a better date than what he planned. I cannot wait to marry him and to be his bride soon!

How They Asked

December 21st, 2020 was the best day of my life. My best friend became my Fiancé. We were visiting New York to celebrate our five years of togetherness. He told me that he had a fancy dinner planned and that we had to dress up all cute for the pictures and the dinner, and that he specifically booked a Limo to take us to the dinner. I was ready waiting for our ride and suddenly, there it was! All the billboards lit with our pictures!! When I turned around to look at his face shockingly, there he was kneeling down with a ring in his hand and popping the big question.

It was the most magical day of my life. I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect day. He made me feel so special by doing the biggest and most different proposal that a girl could ask for. I can’t wait to marry my all-time sweetheart!
