I talked to my FI over the phone for the first time without ever knowing anything about him or what he looked like, (long story). In that first phone conversation I blurted out… “Hmmm… I feel like I’m going to marry you”. Well looks like I was right lol. Any other ladies who just knew at the beginning? When did you know? What gave it away?

We were engaged after three weeks. Said I love you after four days and I knew the moment he held my hand on our first date.

Hmm… less than a few weeks in I knew I wanted to marry my SO. We’ve been talking casually about marraige and babies so I’m pretty sure it’s going to happen. When you know so quickly you want to marry them it makes waiting for a proposal feel like forever lol. Fingers crossed for a proposal in 6 months!

almost straight away – best part is i was really unsure of whether to go on a date with my now FI – and after 5 minutes of being in the car with him i was like “damn why the heck didnt i want to go on a date with him hes ace!”
2 years later we are due to be married in 7 months and hes the most amazing man ive ever met!

Madeline789: Like PP I also went on a date with my FI reluctantly but by the end of the night I knew he was the one. Then we just kept seeing each other. Technically, he never asked me out. But he proposed so I suppose that counts Lol.

When I first saw him (without talking to him) I was instantly ‘in lust’. 2 months later we first talked about marriage ‘someday’ and I told my parents after 3 months together that he was the one- looks like I was right!! We’ll be married after 3+ years together.

Madeline789: We were married after three months, so that definitely indicates a common assesment of the situation, but neither of us believes in the concept of ‘the one’. We don’t believe in fate, or odds that fly in the face of logic. If we hadn’t met one another, we’d have met other people, led other lives, likely been just as happy. Some may say this is unromantic, but I think it’s actually moreso. Of the billions of other people on the planet, he’s my conscious choice and I’m his.

Madeline789: I was pretty sure I would marry m FI after one or two dates but the idea was solidified after about 6 months 🙂

Madeline789: i think we knew from about the second week of seeing each other, even before we were an official couple. We discussed what we’d like in life, and in the beginning hypothetical conversations about what if we lived together or got married etc. So nice 2 years on that we were totally right 🙂

Madeline789: I knew by our 2nd date. His personality was just perfect for me; he was funny and sweet and adorable. I wanted to spend all my time with him and still do!

We were instantly obsessed with each other. We were also not in a posiiton to date each other at the time, so we remained friends for a while but we talked all day long every day and couldn’t get enough of each other. I knew pretty much right away.

It’s interesting how some were reluctant at first! Funny how love works. 😉 Thank you for sharing ladies. They were very sweet stories.

I think I had that ‘the one’ feeling about 9 months in. Of course we had great chemistry and love, but he still couldn’t think that far into the future and I sort of went back and forth between ‘am I doing the right thing?’ and ‘of course, you wait if it is good!’
I pretty much gave up September last year. Stopped signing my name with his surname in my diary, started thinking maybe I should go to church to meet a more committed guy – but things got better! And here we are, he proposed on valentines day this year and THAT is literally the actual moment I knew he was the one. How sad ha ha, but sometimes you can’t be sure until he actually gets down on one knee (or two in his case). xx

I knew pretty early, enough to drag him to a destination wedding 4 months into our relationship. I wanted him to meet my high school people because he was “it”.

Bette_Noire: I don’t believe that there’s only one special person for me either. But, I knew that FI was my choice after a couple months. There are other people I could have been happy with, but I’m happy now, so it would be crazy to throw that away.
