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

Here, Arpith Bhat shares his story.

Arpith Bhat with his wife

I got introduced to my wife 11 years ago, in 2005 through a common friend.

We started chatting over mobile phones as it was the trend during that time.

The same year I had to move to a different city to pursue my education. She was studying engineering at our native place.

We were in a long distance relationship. Thankfully she was from my hometown so I we could meet during my holidays.

In 2009, both of us had to take an important decision to concentrate on our studies and career.

We took a break from our love life so that we could focus on our studies.

We did not speak to each other for two years.

In 2011, she called to wish me on my birthday.

During the conversation I asked her whether she was still interested in me.

She took almost 10 days to answer. And it was a 'Yes'.

We informed our parents about our relationship and told them we would like to get married.

The good thing was that our parents did not have second thoughts.

Both parents hailed from the same community and place.

Everything happened in such a short time that it's hard to believe how things worked out for us.

We got married on January 23, 2013 and since then I can say my life has changed completely -- both personally and professionally.

We are happily settled in Dubai.

We do not celebrate Valentine's Day as it happens to be my grandmother's death anniversary.

For us every single moment/day is a Valentine's Day. I don't need a reason to celebrate on a particular day.
