How They Met?
Abina and Niraj first knew of each other in 2003 through a common friend but had never met in person. In August 2007, Niraj was visiting his cousin in Northern California with his friend. Noticing on Facebook that Abina lived in Northern California as well, Niraj wanted to meet up with her and invited her to hang out.
Abina and Niraj hit it off the first minute they met. They spent the entire evening talking and felt incredibly comfortable in each other’s company. Niraj was a gentleman and dropped Abina home at the end of the night.
A day later, while Niraj and his friends were having a night out in San Francisco, Niraj decided to leave the club and call Abina just to say hi. They ended up talking for hours even though Abina had an early flight to Utah the next morning. Niraj mentioned that he had Ghirardelli chocolates for her and wanted to drop by before her flight. He persuaded the guys to leave the club and drive to Abina’s place, which was an hour away. Niraj’s cousin drove as fast as he could and reached Abina’s place as she was getting into her uncle’s car for the airport.
Niraj came dashing forward and hugged Abina, and long behold there was no chocolate! Niraj had lied but Abina understood the good intentions behind it. After Abina moved to Utah, Niraj moved back to Boston and continued their friendship only to begin their happily ever after together.
