It truly is the season of love and holy matrimonies. Just when we couldn’t get enough of DeepVeer, Mira Sethi made our hearts go all aww with her super sweet engagement announcement. The 7 Din Mohabbat In actress took to her social media to reveal warm details of her love life in a lengthy caption, and shared a bunch of photos which show the timeline of the couple’s relationship to their engagement day.

The caption included Sethi reminiscing over how the two had always known each other, being family friends, and how their friendship soon blossomed into something long-lasting. She also mentioned several anecdotes, which could give the best romcoms a run for their money. One of these amusing stories really stuck with the fans.

We travelled together to Lisbon, Brussels, Amsterdam, New York, Islamabad, Reno, San Francisco. We went to a festival in the desert and slept under the stars. We danced to really bad music. We biked across the desert at night, our cycles glowing with fairylights. Bilal biked ahead so I could follow him. He would slow his bike down every few minutes and ask, “Tum theek ho? Thand tou nahi lag rahi?”

In the spring of 2017, a tall, funny, curly-haired dude walked into my life. I'd known this curly-haired dude all my life — in the way you know your parents' friends' kids — but we'd never sought each other out. (Weirdly enough, Bilal and I overlapped at Oxford in 2008—he was doing his PhD, I was spending my junior year abroad. But we never looked each other up, never bumped into each other in that tiny cobbled town.) ⁣ ⁣ Almost a decade later, we met in Lahore on a warm February evening. We vaguely agreed to meet for dinner sometime. ⁣ ⁣ A few days later we were at Spice Bazaar, and it was suddenly cold again. Bilal asked what I'd been upto: he nodded across the table and asked gentle, probing questions. Lots of questions. In between licking mutton kunna gravy from my fingers, I found myself answering his questions with an openness and ease I hadn't encountered in myself in a long time. Later, we sat in the garden of my house and played with Max. My brother joined us. The three of us talked. Bilal dug his hand inside Max's mouth and pulled out a sharp branch. Max was all over him.⁣ ⁣ A few days later Bilal lost his mother to pneumonia (she'd had Parkinsons for a decade), and it was a wrenching, difficult time. Bilal and I would text. Talk about light stuff. He used the heart emoji unselfconsciously, as a friend might. The conversations veered from TV shows to politics to "plan for the day?" The few times we met before he left for DC, he talked openly about his regrets and hopes and dreams. Sitting across from him in Cosa Nostra, this time not very hungry because my body was clenched with affection and interest, I listened. He was warm and funny and brilliant. That night, I curled up next to him and we watched a show on Netflix. ⁣ ⁣ The next year was a whirlwind. We travelled together to Lisbon, Brussels, Amsterdam, New York, Islamabad, Reno, San Francisco. We went to a festival in the desert and slept under the stars. We danced to really bad music. We biked across the desert at night, our cycles glowing with fairylights. Bilal biked ahead so I could follow him. *continued in comments* ⁣

“Theek houn!” I’d shout over the wind, pedalling furiously to keep up with him, she wrote.

This adorable exchange between Sethi and her fiancé, Bilal, has created a storm over social media, and people are using it with their own renditions. We gotta say, it’s pretty entertaining.

We all want our own versions of Bilal to ask us the same.

Ooh, combining multiple meme formats to make it funnier…

People are really bringing their A game to the front with these sports, politics, and celebrity versions!

Saving the best for last…

After witnessing Sethi’s epic tale of romance, we all need a prayer like this one.

Anyway, it’s your turn to ask your significant others the same. All banter aside, we can’t wait for this lovely couple to tie the knot! We wish nothing but pure happiness and lots of love for these sweethearts.
