Have you ever had a spontaneous instinctual moment that just let you know, yes, I love him?
Yesterday afternoon, I was sitting inside absorbed in my work grading papers on the computer. My FI was outside digging with a shovel and loading up the trailer with yard stuff to take to the dump. All of a sudden, I heard a really load POP and saw a flash of light, and I immediately knew something electrical and really bad had just happened…Before I could even think, my body had flown out of my chair and raced outside and my was mouth screaming my FI’s name!!! It was a gut reaction like a mom’s instant sprint to help her kid or something like that!
He was ok. Nothing had happened to him – he didn’t dig up an electrical line and get electricuted as I was imagining – a transformer had blown in the neighborhood. At that moment, though, I knew in my gut… I really care with all my heart about this man!!
I am now 38, and so I had lots of relationships, but never had that moment…sure, I “loved” some of those guys and considered taking it further, but I never really felt it deep in my gut…for this or that reason we didn’t see each other as “the one” and those relationships failed… Two years ago, I met my now FI and something was just right….and that “just right feeling” has grown stronger. From time to time I get a reminder of how just right it is….
How about you?

@Miichelle: Your story made me smile and I had tears. Well, I tear up easily these days.
I had a moment like that but it wasn’t a bad situation or anything. We spent a really busy weekend just driving around to various stores, picking up supplies for our save the dates etc. Basically, it was hectic and busy and not romantic at all. On Monday he sent me an email during the day (we do not call each other during work, only little emails) saying how nice and amazing the weekend was and how he liked it (even though there was nothing amazing about that particular day). At that point something clicked inside and I also had this moment – Oh, I really do love him and want to spend my life with him – because even busy and tedious days are fun with him.

I have that ‘just right’ feeling with my FI as well. I hope it continues to grow as you say. I know the crazy beating heart love doesn’t last, but I hope the rightness never goes away 🙂

I’ve had a few of those moments, but the last one just happened on Tuesday and makes me tear up thinking about it!
FI’s 82 y/o Gram was perfectly healthy a couple months ago and all of a sudden she’s ended up in the hospital with multiple back problems and unbearable pains. We were visiting her on Tuesday in the hospital, and she decided she wanted to sit up. FI and his Gram have always been very close, but his family doesn’t show much affection, so when she asked him to move her foot stool under her feet I didn’t think anything of it. But then he tenderly helped lift her feet up onto the stool and I don’t know why but it made me so emotional, just to see that!!!

I get that feeling more and more every day. Especially after our daughter was born. He’s so sweet with her and they look so cute together.

Thanks for your touching stories. Getting teary-eyed over people’s true love fills me with hope and promise and makes all the litte troubles of day to day melt away! 🙂

Yes, I know the feeling. Every now and then I am so overwhelmed with my love I could cry. I’m serious…It gets kind of annoying, lol! I was reading a thread on another forum I am on with a 21 year old saying her husband was calling her fat and blah, blah, blah.
THen I realized how when I gained 10 pounds when my fiance was deployed he didn’t say anything. He hugged me, slept with me, loved when I dressed up, took me out and didn’t act any different,
And I could have cried I was so overwhelemed with my love for him. I feel lucky. He’s such a kind, sweet guy. And sometimes I am just way to hard on myself.
K, I’m gonna go snuggle him now!

When our daughter was a few hours old, my husband was napping with her curled up on his chest. He looked so strong and capable. I’ve never loved him more than I did at that moment.

I was having an awful weekend two weeks ago. I had a big project due, which stressed me out every time I thought about it, and when I get stressed out, my first reaction is to cry. On Sunday right as we were leaving to go to the library, I started to cry, and he asked me what was wrong, and if he could do anything about it. I really wanted pancakes, so he took me out to breakfast, even though he was late for his meeting. It made me feel much better. He’s very good at dealing with the crazy streak that I have.

Yes, once when we were sitting on the sofa, falling asleep, and he was rubbing my belly (I’m pregnant) and I just felt so much LOVE for him. Just thinking about the life our love has created together…makes me so happy.
