This is about my friend, Rina, who met her love online. He was in the US while she was in Mumbai. It was instant click. They shared many common interests and also differed in their view on many issues. Soon they fell in love.
He was scheduled to visit India for a week for a business meeting in Hyderabad but would stop over in Mumbai for a day.
She was worried if they would still be attracted to each other when they met.
He took her hands in his and said, “I love you.” Rina was happy. Only the touch mattered. Fingers intertwined, they kissed. He seemed besotted by her. He loved the way her eyes danced when she laughed.
She knew she had met her soulmate. The week just flew. She couldn’t imagine life without him. She tried to convince her parents to send her abroad to pursue her studies in the US.
They agreed when they discovered she had a boyfriend there. They refused to let her go. My friend was devastated. It’s been a year now. She’s still heartbroken.
