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

Vijayendra Sheth tells us how he found love.

Vijayendra Sheth

After meeting nearly 30 suitable girls for marriage, I was bored and had lost all hopes to find a good partner.

Neha was the 30th girl I met.

We met at Cafe Coffee Day in Vidyavihar, Mumbai where we casually shared our details.

I found that we were too opposite in our thoughts and would never be compatible.

For example, I was emotional and she was more practical.

We exchanged goodbyes and said 'all the best' to each other.

Every one else, except I were satisfied with the meeting.

It wasn’t a first sight 'Yes' moment for me.

I completely denied getting in touch with her and ignored many messages.

Several family meetings later, both our families arranged us to meet again and that was when I realised that I had made a judgement far too early about her.

Gradually, we kept meeting each other without any commitments.

I discovered that somewhere there was a spark and something similar between us, and the phrase 'opposites attract' immediately applied to me as well.

Now we are happily married and are parents to twins -- a girl and a boy.

They are Kiyara and Kahaan.
