I’m a newbee and am lucky enough to be marrying the most amazing man on earth.
I knew that he was the most amazing man on earth (and for sure and certain that he was it) when I was getting ready for bed one night, and I was in the bathroom pulling my hair back so I could wash my face.
I had formed it into a bun and was looking for a hair tie when I felt his hand rest gently on the back of my head, holding on to the bun.
He said “go ahead, honey. I’ve got it”.
Why yes, sir. Yes you do.
What was the moment that you knew that your FI was the one for you? Was it something small? Something odd? Something extraordinary?

Oh my god – I cried reading that – soooo sweet!
I knew one day when I got off the phone with him – I don’t remember what he said and I don’t think it was anything in particular but I just knew!!!!

You have such a cute story there! Love it!
I think the moment I knew actually happened at probably a more awkward moment. It was about 2ish months after DH and I met. We were in my dorm room at college laying on the couch just chilling and talking. We were holding hands and he lifted up my left hand, touched my ring finger, and out of nowhere said, “I’m going to put a ring on this finger someday”. Talk about freaking me out! We had only met 2 months before and he was talking marriage! It was kind of freaky! But after the initial shock wore off that he was already wanting to marry me, I knew that he would. And he did!

About three months into our relationship I got a terrible cold/flu. My dh came over and I was layered in clothes…sweats, an old sweater and an older bathrobe. I was lying in a recliner feeling like death…he leaned over and kissed me. “You are sooo cute’ he said. I knew it was love and knew it would last forever.

We had been dating for about 2 months. We hadn’t made-out yet because he was just that much of a gentleman. I say it is because he was scared of me! LOL
Kidding aside we finally made-out not major make-out session but finally a kiss other then on the cheek. I remember thanking God for bringing him into my life and for making me the luckiest girl in the world!
I’m not the praying everyday/moment type person. I go to church about once every three months or so. So when I said my thank you to God… it made me really stop and think about why I had done that. I just knew that this was more special then any other realtionships I’ve been in.

B/c for all the years we were apart, it was his voice in my head, singing me to sleep every night.

Sweet stories, all! Mine was a little more tangible than yours, MissHelen … we moved halfway across the country together and stayed happy. I knew he was great before that, but I couldn’t stomach staying where we were, and when we successfully transitioned to a new city together, I knew we’d make it.

There were conversations and deep feelings shared leading up to this, but he told me the moment he knew was when he drove around ALL of southern california for HOURS one day just to find a dress from Macy’s that I wanted to wear as a guest to a wedding. (he had to go to multiple Macy’s to find my size – they kept re-directing him) and realized that although it was miserable, he truly wanted to do it for me. When he said that, i knew too.

MissHelen, what an awesome awesome story! I felt my throat choke up a bit…
I’d say my “moment” of realization was about halfway into our relationship, at the point where you really really have eachother down; you know the ins and outs, ups and downs, and quirks of eachother whether good or bad. I could put all the dumb stuff between him and I aside and still 100% truely mean the words that I had said to myself years ago after our very first date: that he was the most amazing person I had ever met in my entire life. I still say it, but now I just say how lucky I am to be with the most amazing person i’ve ever known in my entire life.

When did I know? Our 3rd date. We went to the movies to see Juno. And we both laughed more than anyone else in the theater. Then we went to Steak N Shake and sat there until 2 am, talking and watching it snow. Neither of us wanted the date to end. Finally, he took me home we we had our first kiss in his truck. I kissed him and then made him promise to text me when he got home (he had a long drive). I could not sleep, I was so happy and the world just felt right. The next day he called me while I was at work and invited me over to have fire in the fireplace and watch a movie. From then on, we’ve been inseperable.

I love these stories, what a great thread!
I knew about a month and a half after we started dating. He was a groomsmen in his best friend’s wedding, and while the dates of the wedding party were invited on the bus to hang out while the pictures were being taken. He was so proud to introduce me to his closest friends, and he was so attentive and sweet. We got to the hotel that night (our first overnight together) and there was a bottle of champagne (he knows how much I love it and he knew it wasn’t being served at the reception) and homemade strawberry sorbet.
I am so blessed! I keep wondering what incredible thing I did in a past life to deserve such a man.

I love that hairband story! What a sweetie.
I don’t know that there was ever a moment that I knew for sure. I think it was just that we kept spending time with each other, and I could see us being together forever, which hadn’t happened before, even in other long-term relationships I’d been in. And I never changed my mind!

Those are all such great stories 🙂 For the first birthday i celebrated after we were together we couldn’t actually be together because it fell during the week and at that time he was working over-over time 🙂 he came straight from work and brought me a wrapped package…when I opened the package I knew he was the one. He (somehow) tracked down a hardcover edition of my fav book (which had been out of print for several years). I love reading and he knew that a lil dream of mine was to have a library when i bought my very own house. when I read the card it said something about this being the first of our collection….i’m such a nerd lol!

I know it sounds cheesy… but I knew he was the one the first night I talked to him. He was unbelievably perfect, and he still is, only better. I am an artist, and he has been my biggest fan since day one and was so supportive and believed in me and understands me more and better than anyone else ever could… there are just so many things. It’s just been this incredible intense feeling of being at “home” and “safe” and things just making sense since I first heard his voice. I just knew he was the one. There is no way that God made him without me in mind… I’ve just always known. 🙂
BAH! You mushy girls getting me all teary and off of my late dinner of awesome pork chops high! I was fat and happy, now I’m fat and sappy. lol
