DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA: According to 'Indian Matchmaking's in-house matchmaker Sima Taparia, first there is marriage, then love. Unfortunately for the Mumbai-based matchmaker, not all of her clients seem to be on board with her marriage ideology, such as Viral Joshi, a pharmaceutical developer from Durham, North Carolina.

After peaking in her professional life, Viral wanted to settle down in her personal life as well, so she sought Sima Aunty's help. Much to Sima Aunty's displeasure, Viral had a huge criteria list for her potential partner, ranging from him being a self-made man to Gujarati, the 30-year-old seemed pretty clear on what she was expecting from her partner and their relationship. Despite Sima's best attempts at getting Viral to bring down her expectations to a measly 60-70% of the criteria on her list, Viral was adamant about getting everything in her list. Viral pointed out how she was bringing everything that she was asking for to the relationship, so she was convinced that she wasn't asking for a lot. Based on Viral's preference for self-made, financially independent Gujarati men, Sima narrowed down her search and matched her to two men- Viral Kothari and Jaymin Mehta. Unfortunately, Viral didn't see any long-term relationship with either of the men citing reasons such as differences in life ideologies to lack of physical attraction.

When Viral explained her reasons for rejecting Sima's matches, the matchmaker got very annoyed and called her out for being "superficial". But Viral refused to budge and insisted that she needed to find her partner physically attractive as well. So, Sima was left with no choice but to find a new match for Viral. After some search, Sima matched Viral with an optometrist from New York named Aashay Shah.

Are Viral and Aashay still together?

When Viral first met Aashay, she was instantly smitten by his looks, his fluency in Gujarati, and most importantly his strong bond with his family. The two hit it off almost immediately, though Viral was cautious when it came to pursuing things with Aashay. She soon realized that the two of them were very different, but she found that their differences were compatible. Finally, Viral flew down to New York to meet Aashay, and during her visit she found herself fuming at him for showing up late to their date. But after watching how Aashay patiently handled the situation, Viral realized that he was the one for her.

In her confessional, she admitted to the show's producer that Aashay was the best man she ever dated, while Aashay too echoed her feelings by pointing out how she checked all his boxes when it came to his ideal partner. So, the duo ended the season on a high note. If you're wondering if Viral and Aashay managed to keep the spark alive even after wrapping up filming the Netflix show, then it looks like it might be a yes. The duo continue to follow each other on social media, and regularly like each others' posts. We'll just have to wait for either Viral or Aashay to confirm their relationship status.
