DH is my first real boyfriend. We met when I was 23 and I had only been on a few dates before that. DH was my first everything and I literally knew the second I saw him. I never believed in love at first sight until it happened to me. Six years later I love him more and more every single day 🙂

Not me, I kissed a lot of frogs.  I ended up breaking up with my first long-term (3 years) boyfriend to see what else was out there (should have made that decision a year or two earlier).  But I did know FI was the one very early on, a feeling I’d certainly never had with anyone else before.  Awesome story!

Adorable story!

People get bug-eyed when I say that FI was the second guy I was ever in a relationship with – that’s a little unusual for my peers around here. Most people date a lot more than I did, haha!

I wouldn’t say ours was love at first sight, but we met in school while we were both dating other people. I thought he was cute and a very nice guy (he thought I was cute too, this was college and not grade school haha) but since he was in a relationship (and so was I) I kept it to myself and didn’t think much of him (romantically-speaking, but we did become good friends) for a couple of years.
So it might have been “love at first sight”, but real life kicked in and was like “hey stop eyeballing that person, he’s taken and so are you.” o_o

Aw that’s so wonderful!

I’m SO’s first (and only) girlfriend, although I don’t think he knew I was “the one” for awhile…but we started dating when we were seniors in high school. He’s basically my only serious and adult relationship. All other relationships were under the age of 18, and the only one that lasted longer than 3 months was when I was 14-15. Needless to say none of these relationships had any of the elements of an adult relationship!

So we may not have known it right away, but SO found “the one” on his first try, and I found “the one” pretty early on as well.

Your story is really wonderful, btw!

No. I can’t imagine marrying the first person I ever dated (no offense).  I’ve learned so much from past relationships that have m ade my relationship with my DH so good.

That’s really cute, thank you for sharing!

I’m not my SO’s first girlfriend, but he’s my first boyfriend. We were friends first, so we sort of skipped over the dating stage. I guess nobody expects their first boyfriend to be “the one” but like you, I got really lucky!

Aww… I’m glad you found the one.


My DH was the first guy I ever dated. He was the first in everything including first kiss. We got to be friends while in high school and he finally asked me out in Dec. of our senior year. It was not love at first sight by any means but as time went on our love for one another grew. We have been together 7.5 years 1 year of which married. I do not regret the choices I have made when it comes to guys.

To be fair there were a couple guys in high school that I was friends with I kinda crushed on. Though when I was out with a group of friends with them I realized that they weren’t who I thought they were, and that it would not have worked out.

FI and I are like this, and another couple we’re friends with are like this, too! We jokingly call ouselves penguins. 🙂

I met FI in highschool. He was my first and only big crush. We’d each never been on a date (I didn’t even have dates for my proms, just went with friends), and we’d each never had a boyfriend/girlfriend. We started dating in college, and we’ve been each other’s first everything! It is really special, and we feel so lucky. We’re not the kind of people who thought we’d marry our first love, etc. I thought I wouldn’t get engaged or even start to think about marriage until my thirties! We lovingly refer to our relationship as a lucky fluke.

I think the most amazing thing about finding the right person, is that no matter how it happens, it always feels this special.

Helper bee a nice story. my man and I shared our first everything too. we met working at a deli he was two years older than me and i was a junior in highschool. I went to an all and he was a nerd that was too shy to talk to girls. Yet  six months later he was compelled to talk to me. Went on our first date and talked about everything for hours, it felt like a great connection. seven years later we are going strong.

I cant imagine dating several people(no offense). My parents were free loving swingers, so I think that is why I only believe in the one. I just think dating a lot of people is like being tainted or something idk.

aww what a cute story!

For me, I am much too guarded to fall so fast. Looking back at our 7yr relationship, I do see signs that he was The One from day 1, but I didn’t see it back then 🙂

@goingtotherooftopoflove:  He wasn’t my first boyfriend, but those relationships before were jokes (lasted less than 3 months, only kissed). He’s my first real boyfriend, and I knew he was the one, maybe not at first sight since it was a three second introduction, but definitely I knew on the first date, which wasn’t even a date, we were hanging out as friends because I was dating someone else, had gotten into a fight and out of spite spent all day at an art festival with now FI. The other relationship ended two days later and two days after that FI and I started dating 🙂 It’s been amazing ever since!
