It didn’t feel like a first kiss even though it was one – it felt like one you share when you reunite after being separated for years. We were, like I said, coming home.



My lucky 13 was the 13th of September last year, when Samy and I talked for the first time. It was only a week after I had joined tinder, fresh out of a very toxic relationship, so I wasn’t quite looking for anything serious. In spite of that, we ended up talking the whole night, and on the third day of us talking, Samy confessed that he loved me. I wasn’t there yet, but when I met him in person, on September 18, I knew something had shifted.

It was a scorching hot day, and I remember Samy at the station, walking towards me in his gorgeous black-and-white tee. I was extremely nervous and had prepared for the whole night before to make a good impression (in hindsight, while I said I wasn’t in love yet, I was clearly halfway there too), but when we hugged, it literally felt like coming home. I know it sounds like something you’d read in a romance novel, and considering we are protagonists in our own, it does make sense. I got him an ice-cream and took him back to my place, and he later told me that he was apprehensive about that! But we hugged again when we reached home, perhaps for 2-3 minutes, and the moment we locked eyes, we kissed. It didn’t feel like a first kiss even though it was one – it felt like one you share when you reunite after being separated for years. We were, like I said, coming home.




Over these months, we have loved and have learned each other, and we share so many things in common that it’s almost a little wild. We both love fashion, art, old Bollywood songs, and Taylor Swift. He still hasn’t come around to Lana Del Rey who I LOVE, but as they say – you win some, you lose some! I remember music being our Cupid too – he would share songs with me everyday and we would play them at the same time. “Tum se hi” is our song now, and that is how it became so. We love sitting by the lake at Central Park, or cooking together and cuddling at home. Those are the best dates; I salivate at the thought of the Mac&Cheese Samy makes for me! In my completely unbiased opinion, it is probably the best in the world.




We are young and in love, and life couldn’t be better. We have dreams, individually and together, and we cannot wait to see each other live them out. We plan to go abroad for college – Samy will be studying fashion designing and I will study fine arts – and we are very excited to navigate our careers while being on each other’s side. We are lucky to have families that love and support us – they joke about how similar we look that we could pass as twins; they also spend time with one another. We have recently started a YouTube channel, and we have aspirations of growing on social media, of sharing our lives as a young gay couple happily and healthily in love, as we do not get to see that often. We want to send a message that it is possible to find love at a young age and still build your life and career, that one doesn’t have to take a backseat in the pursuit of the other. More than anything though, we want to continue to communicate, learn, and grow in life and in love.
