We'd asked you, dear readers to share your love stories with us.

Anand Magesh tells us how he found true love in his schoolmate Tanu.

Anand Magesh

Thanu and I are schoolmates from first grade.

She lived in the street next to mine.

We were good friends but when we were in 9th grade, something changed.

I fell for her and shared my feelings with her.

She did not approve though she showed some interest in me.

When we were in 10th grade, she lost her father and her family moved to Chennai. I too moved to Coimbatore and we completely lost contact with each other.

I always tried to find her and twice, from a common friend, I found out that she was in Chennai. But I couldn't get her contact details.

I searched for her in Orkut too but couldn't find her. Instead, I found another common friend.

After 11 years, in March 2010, I spoke to the common friend and she gave me Thanu's phone number.

I was in Bangalore when I called her. It was a great moment; I spoke to her.

Imagine the streak of luck -- she was on her way to Bangalore to attend a company meeting.

We planned to meet the following day.

After meeting her I knew that I still loved her. She too figured that -- maybe from my eyes.

In fact, when we asked each other if we were seeing someone, both of us looked nervous. We were both expecting a negative answer.

The next day I proposed my love to her and this time she accepted :)

We got married on February 6, 2012 and had a cute daughter in 2013.

Looking back at our story I feel we were destined to be together. Love brought us together.

I am ending my story with a quote: "If you love something, let it go. If it returns, it's yours; if it doesn't, it wasn't."


Jab We Met: 'My eyes would search for her'

Jab We Met: 'In her, I found a friend forever'

Jab We Met: 'She was filled with anger'

Jab we met: 'She was simple and beautiful'

Jab We Met: 'Jodiya upar se bankar aati hai'
