NEW DELHI -- Tia Verma, 32, a Mumbai-based public relations professional, and Vivek Malhotra, 35, a banker, met last year on Aisle, an Indian dating app, after Verma sent an invitation.

"As soon as we began communicating, we realized we had a lot in common. We bonded over our love for travel and food, exchanged numbers and got to know each other better over texts that soon turned into hourlong calls," recalls Verma. After chatting for a month, the two are now planning to meet and "take the relationship forward."
