His Lo­ca­tion

Paris, France

My fi­ancé, Ashvin, and I have been to­gether for more than six years.

He ended up get­ting a great job in Paris, and I went to live with him for a while. But then I was of­fered my dream po­si­tion manag­ing an art gallery back in New Delhi, so I re­turned to In­dia. We both needed to chase our dreams. I think one of the rea­sons our long-dis­tance re­la­tion­ship

works is be­cause we keep things play­ful, fun and light. I don’t just text him my work com­plaints like I might if he were closer. In­stead, I mes­sage him pho­tos of my new hair­cut or the hot dress I’m wear­ing out, and he sends funny pic­tures of him doz­ing off at his desk or the ketchup stain on his tie. These spe­cial, small mo­ments con­nect us. It makes us feel like we’re not so far away. We save the big­ger con­ver­sa­tions for when we’re to­gether—not for that stat­icky con­nec­tion over the phone.”
