    After the first date I knew I was hooked. We talked until the bar closed. Then when we went skydiving a couple weeks later I knew that he was the one. There’s not many people I would jump out of an airplane with lol

    I knew he was the one since day one, my fiancé is truly a gift from GOD. He literally has everything a woman can ask for and I wouldn't finish this post if I start mentioning all of his qualities. He treats me like queen and it has been like that since we met in highschool. I think I'm just truly blessed Smiley heart

    When we first were introduced, there was something there. We just had an instant connection. We talked for hours. I didn't think much of it, other than him being a really nice guy. And cute. But I never thought I would see him again. He lived 2 hours away from me. I was just getting out of a bad marriage and really wasn't looking to settle down.

    2 weeks later, by happenstance, we ran into each other again and it was instantly like a cosmic pull. Like velcro. I can't explain it any better than that. He knew I was the one immediately. He told our mutual friend the next day that he thought I was the one. Our friend laughed, thinking I was not going to be as serious. But I was. I was totally smitten. He told me he loved me first, over the phone, within the first month of us talking. (We did the long distance thing for a year. We talked all day, every day.) He said "I have to tell you something, and I know I should wait until you get here, but I just can't. I can't wait. I love you. I'm not trying to scare you off, but I need to let you know how I feel. I can't keep it in any longer. I am so in love with you." That's it. I was D.O.N.E. Over 5 years later, he still gives me butterflies!

    I knew he was the one the moment I watched him interact with his family. It's always been important to me that my husband love his family because of how much I love mine!

    Within weeks of constantly texting and calling. I think it was within a month of our relationship when I accidentally said “I think I’m falling in love with you.” He wasn’t ready then, but I just knew he was the person I could see myself being with forever. My word slip turned out to be my best decision 💍💞

    Hi! Ok so this won't make sense without you knowing that I'm apostolic pentecostal (Christian).
    I was driving to church the Sunday before Easter and just talking to God and wound up saying something like, "I don't care if I get married. Whatever Your will is, let it happen. If You want me to get married, send me the right man...in Your time." And NO JOKE LESS THAN A MINUTE LATER this random guy messages me on Facebook. We'd been "friends" for a few days or weeks but never spoke. I figured he was just some guy who knew me from church, ok whatever. Well I laughed super hard and said, "Really?" to God while I responded to this stranger. We video chatted a few days later, and his laugh was perfect. It was SO dorky and cute, and I was like, "ok yeah this is cool." So he drove 6 hours to meet me in person a little over a month later, and I was so sure about him that I let him stay with my dad at his place. This STRANGER. He and I had been talking every chance we had, and eventually he said he loved me, and I rolled my eyes and tried to say, "oh you can't love me without meeting me in person!" But low-key I was completely in love. He was just so genuine and kind and smart and funny and just... everything. I tried to hold out on "I love you" until we met, but I couldn't take it anymore and had to tell him. So I've really been in love with him since like two weeks after we "met." 7 months and a day later, and I'm over here anticipating a marriage proposal anytime. We've been talking about our future since about a month after we "met." It was confirmed by our pastors that they felt like this was God's will about a month ago. He asked my parents for my hand about a month ago as well. It's definitely a "when you know, you know" thing for me. And I'm so happy about that!
    Congratulations to all the beautiful brides-to-be!

    I don’t think I can really pinpoint it to one exact moment. Our relationship has gone thru so much twists and turns unexpectedly and we’ve always made it back to each other with an even stronger bond than before. So I guess I would have to say that nobody else has ever been able to understand me the way he does. My past, my present, my future, he’s the one who knows me better than I know me. We have the same sense of humor and very similar personalities. It’s funny when we first started dating his mom didn’t understand why our relationship worked. (I was very shy and quiet around people who I wasn’t super close with) and as she got to know me more and more she would just say okay I get it now yall are the same lol. He’s always helped me thru my troubles and showed me how to open up and allow myself to be happy and show others the real me.

    There’s many reasons behind this question however one particular moment that stood out was I was a having a terrible day one day, struggling at the time, and had already endured so much pain in such little time through life events. He noticed through the texts that something was off and called me, told me he wanted to pick me up and hangout, I didn’t feel like doing much but I went anyway it was better than staying home anyways. So he showed up and when I hopped in the car he pulled out flowers and my favorite dessert. Now this may seem minimal to most women, there was two bouquets, I was confused, he says both were very pretty I couldn’t decide so I had to get you both! (I’m a sucker for flowers... & food). He took the time to make my dessert not just “pick it up”. That was the day I knew he’d do anything just to see me happy. I’ve been his at heart ever since.

    So lol when I first meet him I said to myself who is that he is so handsome (he was my new supervisor) awkward right! When I sat down and talked to him he was nice and caring...but it didn’t go pass that for three years yes three years!! When it was our time to become a couple the wait was worth it. We have fun we work hard for each other and I believe we are soulmates!!🙌🏾

    As much as I love everyone's "the one" stories, Alejandra, I think yours resonates with me the most. Smiley heart It's really real and I know my memory is bad enough that I couldn't remember one moment at all. Thank you for your honesty and congrats on booking your wedding venue! What's it like?

    We met one night through a mutual friend he's stationed with. I was on FaceTime with the friend and he said his friend was coming over but I could stay on the phone if I wanted to... best decision I ever made! I live in New York and he's stationed in California. I knew he was the one when he flew to New York on his only weekend off just to meet me for 2 days. I mean come on, how could I not fall for a man who flew over 2,000 miles just to meet me in person?

    I don't think I could narrow it down to any one moment. For me it was important that he got along with my family, and likes animals. Thankfully he loves puppies and kitties and he gets along better with my family than his own. Plus, he can make me laugh, that really means a lot especially if I'm having a bad day.

    That's funny. I had my wisdom teeth removed - all four and he checked in on me. I was staying at my parents. Then a few months later, he got an infection between one of his wisdom tooth and another tooth. So I was there to help him. Going through CVS to get his pain meds was hilarious!

    It's amazing to me how much one stranger can mean to you!

    So I'm going to TRY and shorten this story the best I could. August 2016 I left my ex after 10 years. He wasn't the one and I knew that. But we together were raising my son, his son, and my neice since the age of 3. She came from a pretty hard life so I kept trying to make it work. One day I woke up and said ya know what the boys are 14 and 16 and shes now almost 9. They're older and Im not happy. I left. Moved out 2 weeks later and started a new life. Feburary 2017 my cousin told me about Bumble app. I went on it and after 2 days swiped on my now fiance. Never married, no kids, exactly what I needed. No baby mama drama and most guys dont want to get married after already divorced. We went out on our first date February 24th to dinner talked about his ex after 15 years never wanted to get married and was cheating on him because he started an overnight job. When we talked about me always wanting to go to Vegas, which he has and music...he said "i wouldnt mind seeing britney spears in vegas". I KNEW HE WAS IT!! I told everyone Im going to marry him. He asked me to move in 6 months later and a year later from our first date in March 24 2018 we were in Vegas and he proposed. I knew it and everyone thought i was crazy lol
