How We Met

Rup and I met on Bumble, across the world during COVID-19. While the long distance was hard from Kathmandu to New York City, we made it work. On our engagement day, Rupesh took me to Point Pleasant beach and we had a beautiful lunch by the water. He said he wanted to buy a ‘surfboard’ on the beach and as we walked down the beach to find a non-existing surf shop, there was a surprise waiting for me!

How They Asked

During the proposal, he talked about every major moment during our relationship, from the first time he heard my voice over the phone, to the last summer when we went to the beach every weekend. He had a perfect pear-shaped ring for me. Rup lost his father and sister in the previous years and truly deserves all the love in the world, we are so happy to be engaged. Getting published would be an amazing surprise for my fiancé!
