When Did You Know They Were "the One"?

They say when you know you know, you know? Was there a specific moment that stood out, or did you just have a feeling all along?

    For me, my FH just seemed to check every box the entire time I knew him. When we met, he was kind, funny, and was able to connect with anyone he met. We hit it off at a ball, and left around midnight (Cinderella is my favorite Disney princess, so this seemed like a sign). We were long distance for about 3 months at the beginning of our relationship, but he still sent me flowers on my first day of my internship, and we FaceTimed every night. He's always been someone who could make me smile, I can be myself around, and who I want to spend all my time with. Being with him just always seemed to feel right 馃グ

    Aww thats so sweet! I love this topic. I don't think I had a specific moment but when I realized I wasn't over analyzing everything I knew it was special and different from any other relationship I have ever had. It felt so refreshing. I don't know if I could ever say I was in love with my best friend before but I certainly can now. He makes the the good times incredible and the sad times bearable 馃グ

    Well, as I speak for me...... my FW is like a breath of fresh air. She brings a level of energy to me that I thought was lost. She completes me in every since of the word "Help Meet", Partner, Other Half...... She's the Queen that should've been there the whole time yet our paths in the past were different and led us together now..... so it's a combination of that feeling of knowing and the small things that are consistently 鉁旓笍 done......dine.......
    Reaffirms...... she is the ONE

    The moment I knew was when He shared art that he does just for fun. He shared a oil painting he did of his daughters. It is magnificent for a novice whose full time job has nothing to do with art. He captured every nuance of them, and I thought to myself, if he could capture every essence of there being, then he is able to be in tune with every essence of me. I never looked back after that.When Did You Know They Were "the One"? 1

    My FW says she knew from the start. Two months in, she told her brother that I was the woman she was going to marry. I'm pretty sure she had her vows written by month six. Unfortunately it took me a bit longer to know! I was hesitant getting into the relationship because we were close friends, and I didn't want to damage that, and also because I'd never done the serious commitment thing. But I remember the moment I realized she was it for me-- nothing in particular happened, but I remember where I was and what we were doing when all of a sudden it clicked. I was like, oh. Okay. I'm all in.

    Omg, he's so talented!! That's incredible. I can completely understand why you fell for him after seeing the art.

    I know I was like. I鈥檓 ok he鈥檚 the one. I was so touched when he did a portrait of me and I had no idea he captured me in a picture and drew from that. Thank you for your kind words.

    Whenever i ask my hubby, he says it was a build up towards it over time. but for me there were distinct moments where i just simply knew.

    When he butt-dialed me after his motorcycle wreck and I took the next day off work to help him run errands. The bike was totaled, but he just lost a few toenails and his hand was sore for awhile. Things just seemed different after that.

    For me it was the first time that I saw him he just had this confidence about him. And then I just felt like I got hit with something in my heart and I needed to talk to him. But there was a problem he had a girlfriend some I waited for the right time. Then I said Hi to him and he spoke back I felt so giddy inside smiled so hard once he walked pass me. I almost lost him because his friend like him but I wasn't intrested. So 1 night I wanted some food so me and my friends was trying to get some food. So I told we need a ride so my girlfriend knew the 1that was trying to hit on me but I eyes and thoughts was on him. So I seen him the next day and just said it. I want us to go out on a date he told me that I was his friends and I said I like want him I want you. We eventually had a date its was great and then we were seeing each other. Got pregnant and told him we had a few or rollercoaster ups and downs were in different relationships but they just didn't workout. And everything I've seen him when came to get our daughter I was still in love馃グ with him and he he know it. We both were available afterwards and was officially together but had some problems aparted ways for a while. But now he came after me and told me that he loves me and dont want to be without me.

    I am a very private and reserved person. It takes me a while to warm up to people. But with him, the moment we met we just clicked instantly. I have never had this type of connection with anyone else. When we met we were in high school and were just friends for many years (even though i did have a crush on him). I had a very difficult time in high school but he was someone that was always there for me and there were many a nights that I called and he came in a heart beat. But the moment I knew he was the one and that I really loved him was when him and his family were moving to another state. We hung out one last time and when he dropped me off at my house he walked me to the door, he told me how much he is going to miss me, hugged me, picked me up and spun me around kissed me on the cheek and said "keep in touch." I was heartbroken and I assumed that was the last time I was ever going to see him. Luckily he and his family moved back a year later and I was one of the first people he came to see. We still didn't become official until a little while later but I will always remember that night and how felt when I thought I would never see him again.

    From the very beginning he quickly became my best friend. I always had a feeling 鈥渢his one was different鈥, but my 鈥渁ha moment鈥 was when I had to undergo several procedures and a surgery for early stage Cervical Precancer and he did not leave my side. We had only been together a year and I didn鈥檛 expect him to be there because I felt like he didn鈥檛 鈥渙wed me anything鈥. He drove me to all of my appointments, procedures, and surgery. He was even allowed to be in the room with me during one procedure when I was under local anesthesia and kept me laughing and held my hand the whole time. It was the hardest and scariest thing I鈥檝e ever gone through and I couldn鈥檛 have done it without him. That鈥檚 when I knew I had to keep him forever鉂わ笍

    Steven and I both went to the same school growing up. He's a few years older, but we were in band class together. He was goofy, loud and awkward. I was quiet, but better around friends. He apparently had a crush on me in school, but never said a word about it, too anxious to do anything afraid I'd reject him. So he graduated and got married to someone else, and I ended up with someone else as well. Fast forward 8 years, he splits with his wife, I'd left my previous partner and we reconnected on Facebook. We hung out, thinking it was just as friends like in school, which we ended up going to eat and feed geese/ducks under a bridge, at sunset. Totally out of no where, he gets up and starts chasing a goose down to the water and begging it to be his friend...and then looked at me like, "he looked lonely." that moment is when I knew he was "the one."

    My fianc茅 says it was a build up of things over time for him but for me there was definitely one moment where we woke up and he was getting ready for work and I just watched him move around the room, preparing for the day and I just thought, 鈥淵ep, I could do this forever鈥.

    They say that 鈥渨hen you know, you know鈥 and as crazy as that seemed once upon a time, that鈥檚 how I knew. There was no one moment that made me realize it. The second we locked eyes, I knew this was something I was gonna pursue and I was looking at my future. It was unlike anything I had experienced before. Everything in the past seemed 鈥渇or the moment鈥, but this was an obvious future.

    It was just over time where our relationship just seemed so natural. We are not very outgoing but we get along so well together. At that point, it seemed that I could make the proposal and get the answer I expected.

    I live by clich茅s it seems when it comes to my relationship and our upcoming wedding. For me it was very much "love at 1st sight" with a little of predatory pursuit thrown in lol *sigh* worn the poor man down to where he couldn't say no Smiley laugh

    We met on a dating site. After getting to know each other for about a year and a half, we finally got to meet each other. After excepting who I was and the way our life would have to be, then I knew she was the one.
