But when they matched, the first message he sent her was questionable.
Aashika and Tiraj were both looking for something serious when they joined Dil Mil. They’d been actively dating and meeting people for months and months, but kept meeting or being introduced to people that they just didn’t connect with. They knew exactly what they were looking for in a life partner, but just weren’t finding it. Aashika was literally about to give up when she received a message from Tiraj – he wrote “Hey, you okay?”
Aashika was almost ready to call it quits and take a break from dating for a while, but that SAME day she matched with Tiraj, they felt an instant connection. Thanks to Dil Mil’s filtering options, they were both able to hone in on exactly what they were looking for, right from location to the specific qualities that mattered to them. They talked for two weeks before deciding to meet in person.
With butterflies in their stomach, they met up for the first time over Indian brunch. Tiraj arrived with roses and chocolates and asked Aashika to be his girlfriend that very same day! They never looked back, and their relationship progressed more easily and quickly than either of them could have ever imagined. They told their parents about each other one month into dating, and six months in Tiraj knew he wanted to marry her.
Exactly 1 year and 15 days after they first swiped right and connected on Dil Mil (how cute that they kept track), Tiraj asked Aashika to marry him in beautiful Santorini, and she said yes immediately! She had a feeling the proposal was coming, as he had planned this surprise trip for her and refused to tell her where they were going until they got to the airport (but still, can you imagine the suspense?). Even with an inkling about what might happen, Aashika was completely caught off guard, and totally caught up in the moment.
The adorable Gujju couple are all set to tie the knot this August in Essex, and we’re so happy we could help this meant-to-be couple find each other! #OnceUponaDilMil
