My Sweet Love Story

My husband and I met in May of 2011, through an online dating website. I loved his sense of humor and we got along great! It was not my first interracial relationship, nor was it his, but I'm glad he's in my life. We've made it through a lot, and my mom even knew he was the one-- before she passed, she used to call him her "future son-in-law" after he came over for dinner one night, had seconds and thirds, and then dozed off on the chaise lounge! He proposed in 2012, and we have been married for two years (and counting)!

The Perfect Couple

The way we met was actually a happy accident. 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. Matt messaged me, and we talked a little bit, and just kind of got everything big, all of our baggage, out right away so we could see if it was even worth continuing to talk. I gave him my phone number and he texted me, "Hi, Ghazala, it's Aaqil." And I said: "Which Aaqil?" as a joke. And that was it. We just talked nonstop from that point, and we went on our first date a week later. We went on a hike, and we put wine in water bottles and had a little picnic at the end of the hike.

Love You Forever

Six months after moving to UK ( Bradford ) , I started online dating on 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. There were points where I was going on dates with two or three people a week. Dating people casually, I didn't really meet anyone that I was interested in for a while. But I met a bunch of really interesting, great guys, who I still keep in touch with — it's hard to be real friends with them, but we're pretty friendly.

Long Distance Love & We got married

I met my wife on I was moving back to my hometown after a year of living away from home. I had moved for a relationship which ended about 3 months after I moved. I had decided once I moved back I needed to get out and date casually. I went out with the wife 5 days after moving back home. I knew she was one right away. She took another few months. We got married a year and a half after the first date.
