We met online and had a bit of a chat for a few weeks before he asked me out for coffee. I tried to play a bit hard to get and on the phone call he asked me out for coffee he said something that made so much sense then I told him I was free in the morning the next day for that coffee date. The moment our our met in person the next day, I saw his smile, I knew and deep down I said to myself “yep he is my boyfriend”! We committed to dating each other after day 3 of seeing each other because the vibes, the sparks, the love and the connection we had was undeniable and different.
However, after a couple of weeks he took me on a date for a 3 course dinner and afterwards went on a Ferris wheel and he formally asked me to be his girlfriend. It was extremely romantic!
Our roora was the easiest process I have ever have to deal with when coming to family. It was on zoom since my parents are in Zim, we are based in Australia, and had to pull it off it in 1 week. I remember calling my Tete on a Saturday and asking for a date for the roora. She suggested the next coming weekend which would give us 1 week to prepare and she talked to my dad to confirm it. This was because I had two cousins having their roora back home on the same day so because everyone was gathered back home, it would be great if we also just did it then to reduce travelling expenses and having old relatives travelling up and down in this covid times. I can say my parents were super supportive of the idea, my husband and family were keen to get their daughter in law and that what I wanted and I got. It was a beautiful success, no drama, no conflicts, negotiations happened in an hour and cows came home 🐂!
