The fairy tale idea of "love at first sight" can be very polarizing, but it has definitely inspired countless romance novels and movies! Smiley laugh Let's set the record straight - how did that first meeting go down between you and your fiancé(e)??

Was it...

A) Love a first sight?

B) Attraction at first sight?

C) Or did your love grow as you got to know each other?

    Yes 100% we met 20 years before we started dating and I ALWAYS had a super crush! I could not put my finger on it but my mind would always wander to him, even throughout the years we no longer worked together and I never saw him!! It's crazy!

    We grew to love each other. I thought he was so extra and cocky when we first met, then something just switched.

    It was as close to love at first sight that I believe in. We connected the moment we met.

    He said that from the moment he laid eyes on me, he knew I was special (😍😭)
    But honestly it was over a year into our friendship before I started looking at him like that.

    Haha I'm laughing because it definitely wasn't.

    I was talking to someone else when I met my FH, and we ended up dating for a few months, but then the guy dumped me to get back together with his ex....

    FH was there for me throughout it all, but I saw him more as a friend. He even told me he had feelings for me, and I told him I didn't feel the same way! And at the time, I didn't. But I grew to have feelings for him over the next few weeks, then we became official, and I haven't looked back since.

    He's definitely not who I pictured being with growing up, but he's perfect for me, and I cannot wait to be by his side for the rest of our lives!

    We "met" online in August and our first conversation lasted 8 hours. I hung up knowing that this was someone I wanted in my life. I wasn't sure what role he would play, but I knew I enjoyed our connection. When we met in person, I wasn't sure how I felt. I had to get out of my own way, but by week two, I knew I loved him. Fast forward 5 months and we were engaged. So I guess love at second or third sight. lol

    Exactly, once I got past who I thought I was supposed to be with, I realized he was perfect for me.

    C. I wasn’t interested at all. Lol I met him via awkward introduction on a stairwell. Ran into him later & ended up cursing him out for calling me after hours LOL I felt bad, we had lunch & then spent nearly every together since then. I guess I appreciate that more bc I had to get to know him.

    We're different cultures too, which has been a challenge, so sometimes it's difficult. His sister in law warned me about the culture shock...and she was right. I'm still learning a lot, but most of his family seems to like me or tolerate me, at least lol!

    Working through all of the challenges so far has showed me we can work through anything. We argue, we bicker, but we always come back and I'm reminded how much I love him. Marrying someone of the same culture as me would have definitely been easier, but what's life without a little challenge?

    There were actually a few months of him trying to talk to me and me being oblivious. We worked on the same floor(different departments) and I would walk past his desk to go steal chocolate from his coworker and he apparently kept trying to talk to me. I'm shy so I'd grab my chocolate and run. Then we were both hanging out in my supervisors cube several times a week to try to cheer her up after her son who was my age had suddenly passed away. I definitely felt a little redness come to my cheeks and felt flustered and butterflies when he was in her office with me. We flirted so hard at work lol. We had our first date thanks to tinder...I really didn't think he was into me like that till I saw his face on tinder and swiped and it was a match. Apparently he forgot he swiped on me since it had been months. OOOOPPPPS lol. He was just afraid to ask me out at work since he didn't want to risk being turned down and me thinking he was harassing me lol

    My partner was definitely my love at first sight! He has proven to be everything I could have asked for and more. Of course there are quirks that I don't always love, but our life wouldn't be nearly as interesting without them. I am so grateful he chose me!

    It definitely wasn't love at first sight for me either!! Smiley surprise

    It was attraction at first sight for him, and I grew to love him as we started hanging out! He invited me on a beach weekend in college because he thought I was cute Smiley shame , and the feelings started on my side by the end of the weekend. We drove back just the two of us for 6 hours and didn't run out of things to talk about which was my first hint that there was something special there!!

    Nope. We met at a friend's house the year before. Our friendship grew on fb and when he planned a day trip to photograph elk, I went with him. When we were leaning over his camera together looking at pictures, I suggested that he should kiss me. And then it was a bit of a whirlwind.

    For me, I definitely knew he was "the one" for me the second I laid eyes on him. We met my freshman year of high school and I was instantly in love. Everything about him attracted me to him and after six years of back and forth dating/friendship/hating each other we finally realized we were meant for each other.

    For us, it was definitely attraction at first sight. We were introduced by two of our friends after FH saw me on social media and asked my friend who I was.

    From our first date, he knew he wanted to be with me and made it very clear (which freaked me out...like...we just met?) but he was persistent. I actually tried to ignore him after the first date because I was a little freaked out and uninterested in dating anyone at the moment. My friend told me to give him another chance and if I still didn't like him then that would be the end of it. Obviously that second date worked out really well, and we have been inseparable since then.

    We got along really well and immediately hit it off and were able to communicate effortlessly. We spent the whole night talking after our second date and told each other our life stories.

    I was nervous to get into a relationship so quickly after my last one ended so horribly. But FH basically told me he wasn't going anywhere and that he wanted to be with me and he'd wait until I was ready. Needless to say, we ended up falling in love very quickly and the rest is history. He is the only man I've ever met who has pursued me, and still pursues me, so unwavering. Even from our first date.

    We started talking about marriage around month 3 of dating, and then started talking about it really seriously at the year mark. Soon after we bought a house together and got engaged and here we are.

    We are getting married on the 3 year anniversary of the day we officially started dating.

    1/26/16 I became his girlfriend, and 1/26/2019 I will become his wife.

    C for sure. We were both awkward and shy on our first date and well he seemed like a nice guy we just didn't really click, mostly due to nerves. I didn't realize I had feelings for him until our third date. I told myself before I went out that night that if I didn't feel anything by the end of it I'd let him down gently. After dinner he took me out to shoot pool, something I'd never done before, he leaned in to correct my aim and brushed up against me. That was the moment I felt butterflies. Since then our love for each other has grown stronger by the day.

    Love at first sight! I was walking one day and saw this guy who when I looked in his amazing green eyes (I dont know why) he stopped me in my tracks. I was used to dating bulked out fitness models/sports brands models and I was always the YOLO/Wild never going to settle down kinda girl. This guy seemed quiet/shy and nothing like I was used to. He immediately looked away as soon as we made eye contact. Fast forward a week and I was having a fling with this guy who everyone thought was drop dead gorgeous, but as usual I was just kinda "mehh" about him. We went back to "Mehh" guys apartment because he needed to grab something and guess who was his roommate...."stop me in my tracks green eyes". He came over was polite, shook my hand and left the room. I was thinking to myself that I was here with the wrong guy as "Mehh" went to ask "Green eyes" a question. When he came back apparently "Green eyes" told "Mehh" that I was the girl he was going to marry. I ended it with "mehh" and asked out "green eyes". We have two little boys together, eloped a year ago and we are now planning our actual wedding.

    B! We're high school sweethearts and will be getting married just past 15 and a half years to the day that we met. I had seen him playing hackey sack with a friend of mine in a hallway (before musical rehearsal started....it was Oklahoma and he was wearing his costume. SWOON!) and thought he was just so handsome. The next day I thought he looked lonely while staring out a window, so I *sprinted* down a hallway, leapt onto his back, and said "Hi, my name is Hannah, wanna take me for a piggy back ride?" And it all went down from there. Smiley xd !

    He joked later that afternoon that he was going to marry tf out of me. Lo and behold....

    It really was love at first sight for both of us. We talk all the time about how cheesy it sounds, but I literally left our first date and told my friends I was going to marry him someday. That was exactly two years ago today, and we're getting married in 53 days Smiley love Smiley heart
