    Ok the first of many moments: We dated for like 6 months before becoming exclusive so we really spent a lot of time getting to know each other. I remember him asking me to be his girlfriend (to which my reply was: "sure" lol) and the next day being randomly emotional. I'm very private with my feelings and typically calm, cool and collected so he had no clue I that I woke up the next morning scared. I knew he was someone special when I got nervous the next day and prayed, "let this work." 5 years and some change later I guess I was right Smiley smile

    There was never really a specific moment when I knew he was the one, I just always felt it somehow. It's kind of hard to explain but every since I met him and I couldn't get him off my mind for 4 years, I knew there was something about him and that he wasn't just a high school crush. I just somehow knew deep down that from the moment he walked into my life, I knew he wouldn't be leaving Smiley heart

    I knew during our first "real" conversation. We worked together in a busy ER so I had seen him and had brief friendly conversations but nothing major. I was out with my then boyfriend at an outdoor concert and FH just happened to be there. We started chatting and very quickly I had this thought of "This guy would be perfect for me." But...I was there with my now ex. Granted, that relationship had mostly ended months before and I foolishly stuck it out for another year. FH and I became pretty good friends and when he found out I was single, he waited a couple of weeks before asking me out and the rest is history, I guess!

    I knew she was the one because I had to have surgery and she dropped everything to be there for me at every turn! I’d never experienced that! & I can be almost unbearable when I’m sick.

    We were 16 going on 17. And he accepted me for all my “baggage” and he let me be open and honest with him (and vice versa) and he never came to any insane conclusions like everyone else in high school did. After 3 weeks of dating, I told one of my good friends at the time “I think he’s the one.” She told our teacher (who we were close with) and laughed saying “they’ve been together for 3 weeks and she already thinks he’s the one.” My teacher laughed and I said “he is I just know it.” I told my dad after 2 months I thought he was the one. And turns out I was right! He told his mom after about 6 months he thought I was the one and she was LIVID. She said he wasn’t thinking straight and that he needed to date other people blablabla. Yet after 6 years and no break ups, look whose the one for him? Me 😊❤️❤️ We were both right!

    Honestly, probably the moment I met him. He was everything I had ever dreamt of. Until that day I had always settled for what I thought I was capable of getting. Then I met this marine with tattoos and we were in to all of the same nerdy stuff. The more we got talking, the more the story of our parallel lives came out. We grew up in rival school districts but had friends in the same circles, never knew each other though.
    As far as meeting the parents went, it was smooth sailing. They liked him immediately. And yeah, he did all the “right” stuff while we were dating, said cheesy lines, etc. But the real important thing is that after 8 years together, we still communicate with each other. And we don’t have unrealistic expectations of the other person, and if we do have expectations we tell them. We’ve never tried changing the other person, but have grown ourselves in our understanding of the other.

    It actually dawned on me after a little while, just out of nowhere when I was looking at him while we were hanging out (maybe month 3 or 4?). Our relationship started out long distance, and was that way for the first 8 months. The fact that he made the effort to try to drive 2 1/2 hours to see me every weekend blew me away (my last long relationship ended long distance because of lack of effort), and the fact that he was SO comfortable talking about literally anything that crossed my mind, awkward body functions, etc. When I finally moved back to be closer to friends and family, we both felt the relief. I was worried I would annoy him with how much I wanted to see him, but nope!
    And the rest is history. We're getting married in April, and the funniest thing that we talked about recently is that our entire relationship, almost no matter what, has been based on the "screw it" mindset 😂 But it's worked! It's worked really well!

    I knew he was the one when I had to time my responses to him 😂.

    After meeting him all I wanted to do was talk to him all day. So, I had to be careful to not text him too much or too soon lol.

    I didn’t know it was love at first, I just knew that I looked forward to talking to him everyday ❤️.

    The first time we went dancing together (our first time out other than working) I immediately started to develop feelings, It wasn’t until the day after I realized I really liked him. I realized I wanted to be with him forever through the small things like all the times we would be laughing so hard our stomachs hurt, playing video games together, the way he’s such gentleman opening my door for me every time we go to the car, the way he fights for us and works so hard... I really just became enamored and haven’t stopped since.

    This is interesting...I met my FH via Match.com. I never really dated much and a friend of me got me to try it out. I was setting up three dates for the same week (crazy right?!) and told myself I'd pick one at the end, ha! I was legit and told each one what I was doing, basically that I had three dates lined up and whoever I liked the most I'd continue dating.

    It was odd, when I flipping through profiles I came across my FH and immediately was like HIM! Thankfully he answered my message and was one of my 3 dates. He was the last one of the three, and we hit it off. He was down to earth and I just felt like I could be myself around him.

    He met my parents shortly after just because of my living situation at the time, and my parents and him hit it off right away. I didn't meet his parents until a year after we were together and it went well, but not as well as my parents.

    Now we spend more time with my parents. Mainly because they live closer to us, but also because they don't pry. My parents are very go with the flow people, and it works for us.

    When I look at my FH I realize, yep, I'm marrying someone just like my daddy, ha! and I couldn't be happier.

    I pretty much knew it when we got back together after a 32 year break. We went to dinner and when he smiled at me and I saw that dimple on his check I was done for

    Oh, the afternoon I met him. We were set up, as I've said in another thread, and I fell for him so hard I texted my best friend and my father.

    We were dating within two weeks and have been together ever since.
