This is something my sister and I were discussing after her recent engagement. I’m a waiting bee, but I was curious as to when most other bees figured out they were in love with their SOs. Was there a moment that you realized you couldn’t live without this person? Lets share some happy 🙂

kayleighclaire: I realized I was in love with him when I couldn’t picture my life without him. I was in other long term relationships and nothing felt like the way it did with my now husband. I could clearly see what my future would be with him, I had this feeling in the pit of my stomach and it was telling me, this is it, this is your future, and I would get butterflies, literally and I still do. 10 years later and I still get butterflies. We have been married for 9 months, we got married on our 10 year anniversary. I can ramble about all the things that just made it so easy for me to fall for him, but I don’t want to bore you or anyone. LOL He is just amazing and not only is he my lover but he really is my best friend. He has loved me at my absolute worst and never loved me any less. He is beyond supportive, honest, caring, puts me first all the time.
I love coming to the bee because I love seeing how there are other women out there as happy as I am!

Daizy914: That’s a beautiful way to put it! I love seeing people as happy as I am, too, even if I’m still waiting 🙂 It’s a beautiful thing to see!

It was about 3 months into dating. I was sick as a dog with a terrible cold and he had just taken me to my favorite chinese place to cheer me up (our guilty pleasure). We were driving home through downtown at night, a romantic song was on the radio, and he was just being so sweet to me even though I was all sneezy and gross. 8pm on October 8th, and it was track 8 on the CD that was playing. I didn’t tell him until months later, but I knew. 🙂

We’d known been dating about 2 months. It just hit me one day, that I love him. A few days later, he told me that he was in love with me.

Our first date. It seems fast, I know, but we were friends before pursuing a relationship and the moment he kissed me, I thought, “WOW… I’ve been missing out on this the whole time?!” We were hot and heavy from that point on, and I still get a jolt up my spine when he kisses me–13 1/2 years later.

kayleighclaire: I knew after just spending a few days with him. My husband and I met playing WoW (online), so we got to know each other before we even knew what the other person looked like. He was literally my knight in shining armor (he played a holy pally and healed me up as I was getting slaughtered lol). I never wanted to get married before I met him, but I just knew once we were together that I’d be spending the rest of my life with him. It’s funny, even the boring, day to day chores seem more like fun and less like work when we’re doing them together. We’ve been together for 6 years and I still get all giddy when he looks at me. So glad that there are other women on this forum that can say they share the same feeling 🙂

We were really good friends before we started dating, so I had loved him in the platonic sense for some time. I think I realized that I was in love with him only about a month after we started dating. Again, I think our friendship and platonic love was such a strong foundation that once we started dating, that love just kind of changed into more romantic love. I also saw a different side of his personality than I did when we were just friends, and I fell in love with how truly kind and giving he was underneath is somewhat sarcastic demeanor.

I knew I was in love with him when I looked at him and knew I could love him at any stage of my life. I could love him sick and with no hair, I could love him missing limbs, I could love him old and gray. I knew I loved him we could have indepth conversations about quantum theory then watch a dumb disney movie and crack up. I still get butterflies everytime he kisses me, I still sit on the couch and watch out the window for him to pull up ( I did this when we were dating hehe). The deal was absolutely sealed when he held my hand and helped me bring our daughter into the world. Hes so in love with her its sickening haha.

We had only been dating a couple weeks when I knew. It was fast but we had seen eachother practically everyday from the day we met. It was hard not to say it once I realized that I was in love with him but a week later we had the “you are the only person I want to be with, lets be exclusive” conversation and he said it that night and I said it back. It was a whirlwind but it has been 2 years now and I am just as certain now as I was then that he is the person that I am meant to spend my life with.

- Wedding: August 2013 - Wynn Las Vegas
We were strictly long distance at the time, and I was hard pressed to believe our relationship would work out seeing as we lived 6000 miles apart. We were in near constant contact, but I tried to continue dating so I wouldn’t get too attached. One day I realized no one else would do. Trying to meet someone local was futile, and I needed to put in an effort to make this work. He agreed. The first time we said “I love you” was over text message haha.
ETA: We weren’t together at the time. The post made it sound like I was cheating, but we were just good friends.

These are so reassuring to me! My sister found it so weird that I fell in love with my SO after he came and got me out of a sticky situation. He had a very long day at work and I called him in tears because I was stuck about 4 hours away from home. My best friend and I went on a roadtrip to check out some local stores and go stargazing at this great point. We went to start the car after shopping at the first store and it wouldn’t start. It was pooched and everything was closing in this small town in an hour, thus no one could fit us in to have the car looked at. I called different family members and everyone said they were too busy to get my best friend and I. I called my boyfriend, who lives an hour further than me, and he came and got me after work, after a long-ass drive. And instead of being upset that his whole evening and half his night was spent rescuing his girlfriend in a little town in the middle of nowhere, he greeted me by telling me he was happy to rescue me anytime I needed it. It was just such a different feeling and it was then and there I realized that he was also in this for the long haul. 🙂 mush!

I knew right away. I could tell I was going to love him on our first date. We had met before, and he’d asked to see me again but I freaked out. I knew if I started dating him, that I was done and I wasn’t ready for that yet. Then three months later when we had our first date, I took one look at him and knew it was over.

kayleighclaire: A month in we were attending a wedding. After the wedding we continued the party at a hotel bar. I looked over at him with his friends and it hit me…I’m going to marry this man.
I waited about two weeks after that to tell him I love him…even though he had been saying for a couple of weeks already. 🙂
