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

Here, Ankit Zanwar tells us how he met his wife Mitali.

Ankit with Mitali

On August 3, 2014, which was incidentally Friendship Day, my family and I travelled to Nasik to meet Mitali for the first time.

I was travelling from Mumbai and my parents, from Aurangabad.

When I asked her the meaning of her name, she said 'friend of God.

In her, I had found a friend forever.

She was an interior designer. I found her to be caring and confident.

Her confidence and will to be a good home maker attracted me.

Mitali and I got married on February 15, 2015. Ours was an arranged marriage.

We travelled to Thailand for eight days for our honeymoon.

Those eight days, we tried to capture every moment because we were aware of the fact that we were going to enter a long distance relationship.

My sister was about to get married in a few months so she had to stay back in Aurangabad for the preparations while I travelled back to Mumbai for work.

I would miss her and tell myself that it was a matter of a few moths. It felt like we were separated for years.

On weekends, I used to travel to Aurangabad. Every Sunday evening, tears would roll down thinking about the five days of separation ahead.

My family was very caring and they helped Mitali feel comfortable.

Finally in July 2015, we got back together in Amchi Mumbai.
