On their very first date, a stranger who looked as if she walked right out of a Harry Potter novel approached Rupesh and Leslie along Walnut Street in Philadelphia. They had an extended conversation with this woman; introducing themselves while explaining their (short) dating history. Within those first few moments she exclaimed, "You are a beautiful couple! Lovely Leslie and Ravishing Rupesh, you were meant to be!" Yes, on their very first date. This was an interesting start to the day, but by the end of this date, Leslie went home with a very pleasant, hopeful, and fuzzy feeling.

It turned out that that feeling was either a severe stomach virus or food poisoning. Rupesh thought for sure that Leslie would blame the Indian food for making her sick and he had ruined his chances. However, Leslie was already too smitten to associate anything negative with this guy. It may have been coincidence, but that restaurant did shut down not too soon into the future. Given how weird their first date was, it should be no surprise that they made their relationship official during a showing of the animated film The Croods.

Three years after their relationship was blessed by Professor Trelawney from Harry Potter next to that Philly bus stop, Rupesh proposed to Leslie on the 57th floor of One Liberty Place. During this moment, Leslie recognized that Rupesh was placing the ring on her right hand, but Leslie loved it, as this was perfectly Rupesh.
