I knew my FI was the one for me within a week of dating, though we’d known each other for about 8 months previous to that. It was before I fell in love with him even. I just had this feeling of being SURE. Any other Bees experience this?

Yep, we met one evening at a BBQ, had our first date the next day, and then I called my mom & told her I met the man I was going to marry 🙂

@nyxtrade: I wouldn’t say I was sure until a little after the one year mark, but I did have an experience the first time I saw him. I thought, “This guy could be my husband.” I had just walked into a new job, and he was my co-worker. It wasn’t instant physical attraction; there was just something about the kindness in his face.

I did! We talked for 2 weeks via iChat and phone/text, and then I went to his state to visit him for a week before I started work for the week. By the time I left we both knew.

I would say after the first date I knew. We spent the first date walking around the mall talking for hours, then back to his dad’s house to watch a movie. During the movie he leaned in and kissed me. Thats the mintue I knew.

Yes, we both just knew. We were engaged within 6 months and married within 10 months.

Omg yes! It wasn’t until a couple months in but I totally knew. What’s funny is the first time I ever saw him it was literally one of those time stops cheesy ass romance movie moments. I’m pretty sure I stopped breathing there for a second. xD Ironically, that wasn’t my “it” moment, my it moment was when I was baking us a cake one night, lol. Weird, I know but hey!

Yep, I knew after spending a week with him. He moved in with me just a few weeks after we started dating long distance, so I think we both kind of knew.

Three years ago I was single and moving to a new city, new job in a new field, etc. I really wanted to meet someone, as I was single at 34, but I was busy with furnishing my new apartment, go through a week of training before starting my new job, and it was hard to leave old friends in my university town (I had gone back to university to change careers). With all that in mind, I thought meeting someone and dating would have to wait. Well, of course, I met my now FI the first day of the training week lol We didn’t start dating before a month, but I was definitely interested right away! I couldn’t believe it! I thought I should wait and meet other people, it was impossible to meet the right person as soon as I arrived in a new city and started a new life, but even though I met other guys during the following weeks, I was only interesed in dating him! I even added him on facebook and made sure he saw my friendship request and then proceeded to find out if he had a gf lol I NEVER did that before with any of my ex! There was just something about him! I’m glad I flirted with him and got to know him and finally dated him 🙂 He was not the type I was usually attracted to, but I HAD to get to know him. He’s the man of my life, and I knew it as soon as I saw him, even in the middle of moving, starting a new job, etc. I never was interested in getting married with my ex bfs, but we’re getting married next year, because I absolutely want to get married with him 🙂

I knew within 3 weeks. Sometimes relationships feel so right and natural.

We “met” on eHarmony and communicated very slowly through the site’s guided communications process. Our first phone call took place about six weeks after we were “matched,” and we didn’t meet in person for another month after that. However, we spoke a lot by phone and text, and we both knew while on our second, in-person date that we likely would end up getting married.

@nyxtrade: I NEVER thought I’d get that feeling..but I did. My mom always told me, “when you know, you just know” but I always thought that was just not how I operate. I am always changing my mind with everything, including guys. Every time I had a long term relationship, I’d end up getting bored or wake up one day and be over it within a year and a half or two years max. I always figured I would just settle when I got married. It sounds so cliche, but I knew after our first date that my husand was the ONE. Ever since then, I have never been more sure about anything in my entire life. We just fit. We are compatible, I adore him, I respect him, he treats me like a princess, he’s successful, ridiculously smart, adorable, genuine, sweet, loves cats (LOL but it’s a must for me), loves the same music, loves the same foods/drinks, loves traveling, I could go on and on…..We have been married almost two months and together 3 years. I am more in love with him every day!!

Yes, this is how I felt within a week of knowing him but I was also in love with him by that time too. I have never fallen in love so quickly before. Actual love and not just lust

Yes, absolutely. I knew there was something special about him right away. We met at a bar when I was 20 (DDing for a friend) and he was 21. He was the first and only man I was brave enough to give my phone number to. He later told me that he saw me walking into the bar with my friends and told his friend “See that girl? I’m going to get her number tonight.” We fell in love quickly, moved in together after 14 months together, and have lived together for 3 years now. Over 4 years into our relationship and we are laughing and I still get butterflies (cheesy, yes, but can’t describe it better) when he holds me. I’m a luckly girl.
