Ab­hi­nav Shukla (right), says the rea­son why they share a close bond is that they’re trav­el­ers at heart.

“We both love to ex­plore new places, so that par­tic­u­lar char­ac­ter­is­tic is so much im­bibed in us that we be­lieve in the beauty of the jour­ney,” says Ru­bina. Is mar­riage on their mind? “Mar­riage isn’t the ul­ti­mate des­ti­na­tion. We’re en­joy­ing this jour­ney at the mo­ment,” says the 27-year-old, who was ear­lier in a se­ri­ous re­la­tion­ship with ac­tor Av­inash Sachdev.

On whether this new re­la­tion­ship has helped her over­come her past, she says that was never the in­tent. “For me, a re­la­tion­ship is not about two peo­ple com­ing and com­plet­ing each other. I be­lieve that a beau­ti­ful re­la­tion­ship grows be­tween two peo­ple who are in­di­vid­u­ally se­cure. So only when I was fully pre­pared and fully out of my past — emo­tion­ally and spir­i­tu­ally — that is when I took this step for­ward.”

While there are “end­less things” Ru­bina adores about Ab­hi­nav, one thing that got her hooked on to him was his creativity. “I call him a Pan­dora box – he is full of sur­prises. He is so cre­ative that each time, he’ll sur­prise you with mag­nif­i­cent cre­ations that your in­ter­est in hu­man be­ings just grows. And when­ever I see him do some­thing new, I get all the more at­tracted to­wards him. I feel blessed that I’m lead­ing my life with a per­son who knows how to live each and ev­ery day pre­ciously.”

Com­pletely smit­ten by her boyfriend, she adds: “He has helped me open my wings. He mo­ti­vates and in­spires me. A re­la­tion­ship is not look­ing into each other’s eyes and spend­ing days. It’s look­ing for­ward and set­ting up a goal as a cou­ple. That’s what we are do­ing.”
