Sea of Love Coupling: Melissa + Raj
Valentine’s Day is coming up, and whether you celebrate or find it cheesy, it’s impossible not to feel a little sweet as the holiday rolls around (even if that sweetness comes from the discount candy purchased on February 15th). We interviewed one of our favourite Toronto couples Melissa + Raj about how they spend February 14th, their best date spots in the city + why they’re sweet on each other.
How did you two meet?


M: We met in our last year of university where we were both 
studying fine art. I had noticed Raj a few months before we actually
 met and had developed a secret crush on him… but was too shy to do 
anything about it. We found ourselves in the same media class and were
 serendipitously paired by our prof to do a project together. Here we
 are thirteen years later!


How do you two celebrate Valentine’s Day?


M: We’ve never been big Valentine’s Day people. Though we say that 
every year, and every year we do end up acknowledging the holiday in
 some small way. Either with a handmade card, a love note Raj had 
written on post-it notes stuck and around the house, a piece of heart
shaped toast or a giant homemade chocolate chip cookie.

R: There was one year I tried to surprise Melis with flowers, a bottle
 of wine and chocolates. I came home to an apartment full of friends,
 Melis had decided to throw a last minute (girls only) anti-valentine’s
day party.

M: Oh man. Yeah, and the girls all made fun of you!


If you could name just one – what would be your favourite part about each other?


R: I love everything about Melis. She is my favourite person. Picking
 one favourite thing is tough, but if I had to, it would be that she always thinks about others and puts them before herself.

M: Raj is really an amazing guy. His ability to always see the bright
 side of a situation and make me laugh even at difficult times is one 
of the best things about him. (Ok, that’s two things.)


Have any pet peeves about each other?


M: His ability to always find the bright side! Sometimes I just need
 to wallow under a dark cloud for awhile! (Also: Raj also owns a
 slightly absurd number of socks. Which I find everywhere.)

R: She is a brutal art director. Getting ideas past her is next to impossible!


Do you two have a “song”? If so, what is it + why?


M: I feel like this is so cliche, it’s embarrassing and I’m tempted to 
lie, but I won’t. We have two songs. Human League’s Don’t You Want Me 
Baby (which was spurred by an art piece Raj did while we were in 
school) is a song that we regularly sing along to (and is our go-to karaoke song). And Peter Gabriel’s In Your Eyes holds some special
 meaning to us, and was our first dance at our wedding (and is actually
 a painfully long song).

R: Especially if you’re dancing alone in front of 90 of your closest 
friends + family.


Tell Us How You’d spent the perfect day in Toronto?
M: Going out together at night is a bit of a luxury for us since we
 have conflicting schedules and 2 small kids that make coordinating an 
evening date a bit of a challenge. My perfect date would be simply
 going out for a leisurely dinner and a walk through the city. Terroni
 is a classic spot that I love, and walking west on Queen towards
 Camera Bar where we got married and playing the “at this time __ years
 ago” game is a pretty fun date to me.

R: Just getting out and doing something without the kids (as much as I
 love them) is awesome. Going to eat at Canteen and seeing a movie at 
the TIFF Lightbox theatre (without Melissa falling asleep!) would be a
great night out.
