We invited you, dear readers, to share your love stories this Valentine's Day.

Here, C Sudeesh tells us how he met the love of his life.

I had attended a wedding when I was ten when I first saw this little girl; I was ten years old at the time.

Though I would not see her again for another 12 years, her face remained in my memory.

Then, when I was around 27, a family moved into a flat in the same building as my sister.

The elder daughter of the family reminded me of the one I had seen all those years ago.

As it turned out, she was indeed the same girl. And the wedding I attended 12 years ago was her cousin's.

Since I was of marriageable age, my family was arranging meetings with prospective brides. Nothing seemed to work.

Finally, I expressed my desire to marry this girl I saw long, long ago.

My sister was hesitant.

The girl, I was told, was still completing her graduation.

Much to our surprise though, her family accepted our proposal!

We went out together a few times during which I told her about the time I first saw her.

Another 12 years have passed since then. And we are now married with a 11-year-old son.

Life couldn’t have been better. She has been my pillar of strength and my best friend.

And to think that I was only ten, when in all my innocence, I hoped to marry her!
