I adore my SO! I knew he was special from the moment he introduced himself, and knew I would spend the rest of my life with him after a few weeks of dating. There’s so much to love about him; his positive, steady outlook on life, his gentlemanliness and creativity, and our ability to talk about anything and everything for hours on end (that NEVER happens with me).
OK, and his good looks and piano/guitar skills helped too! (Phew, is it getting hot in here?!) It’s hard to say whether the proverbial nail in the coffin was the four hour phone conversation, the first kiss by the B-more harbor with the lights sparkling on the bay, the beautiful song he wrote for me, or the time he served me chocolate marshmallow ice cream in bed. Seriously. How many girls can claim to have a guy as awesome as that?
Every bee has a reason for beeing (har har) with their SO. What made you think you could spend the rest of your life with your SO, whether you’re married, engaged, or waiting for the inevitable?

Oh my, similarly, I KNEW my SO and I would be together very soon after dating him. Heck, before we were “officially” dating I knew it was right. Everything is so comfortable with him. We share the same ideals, often (and I know this is cliche) finish eachother’s sentences or say the same thing at the same time. It’s just been great since day 1 and neither of us were looking for a relationship or ANYTHING like that when we met.
He always knows how to calm me down, always puts a smile on my face, and we just can’t stop talking either! Plus, he’s devastatingly adorable. And thinks I am too – and he tells me this regularly. He’s understanding, patient, and just well, exactly what I need.

Can I ask…what does SO mean? I tried searching for it and I see it a lot…but i don’t know what it stands for, I figured it was your fiance though.

Because he doesn’t give up when we fight or ‘discuss’ things.
Because he loves me even when I’m puking and sick.
Because he loves my daughter and supports her in the things that are important to her and the things that are healthy for her.
Because he really does want his life to be about helping me make our lives better and those around us better.
Because he never yells.
Because I always think he’s beautiful and he always ‘tries’ to make me feel the same.
Because he eats everything on his plate even when I completely messed up on a new dish I’m trying.
Because he was so uptight when I met him and now he feels comfortable enough to laugh with people in public.
Because I was so irresponsible when I met him and five years later I’m definitely loving the person his influence has helped me to become.
We’re so opposite, it’s a sort of yin/yang thing, but he inspires me to do better, to treat myself better, to aim higher.
And he always supports that.
And he tells me that I inspire him to look outside the box, to put himself in other people’s shoes, and to try to be a better man for those around him, ie, him living up to the expectations that he sets for other people.

I knew I wanted to get married to FI three months into our relationship when I had to spend five days away from him. I realized I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him. We are pretty much exact opposites, but that works for us.

This sounds weird, but I knew I wanted to marry him before we even started dating, when he had been dating someone for 5 years. They broke up in May, but since I didn’t know him very well and he doesn’t talk about his personal life at work, I didn’t find out til August. In the meantime, I was in a super dramatic relationship that ended badly 3 or 4 times. Thanks to a client who ended up in the hospital, we went on our first date in October and… the rest is history!
