I had not changed my location settings or my age settings from the default, so Matt kind of snuck in there, because there's a 13-year age difference and we lived 50 miles apart.So we got a match, but neither of us was really taking it seriously.We had such a great time, we went to about seven different bars afterward.About three weeks into things, we were eating dinner at a restaurant in Brooklyn when I realized I was just so infatuated with him.But [I] get panicked when I think about the fact that he lived literally one mile away and we had no friends in common. Six months after moving to New York, I started online dating.Not necessarily because I really wanted for find a boyfriend; it was just me just wanting to go on dates because they were so much fun.I knew from the first date that I really, really liked Matt.
This is actually my first serious relationship, and we're at almost a year now. The one thing that is a bit of a problem is, funnily enough, although we're both Indian, he's Muslim, and my background is Sikh.
Both our siblings and my mom know and are happy for us.
My father will have a difficult time with it, but I believe will accept him in time.
His parents are more traditional and it would be hard for them to accept me, without hurting his relationship with them.
I signed up for online dating with a friend, almost like signing up for a marathon together.
