….that you fell in love with your SO? To remind ourselves what great guys we’re waiting on (tapping foot, checking watch) I thought it would be cute to share our stories with each other of when we knew we were in love with our BF’s/SO’s. I’ll start, here goes:
We were less than a month into dating, and we were getting ready to go out somewhere with friends. He was in his closet trying to decide what to wear, and called me in there to help him pick out a shirt. I walked in, and my heart literally did a flip-flop in my chest. I could picture my Granny literally clapping up in heaven, God rest her soul. You see, my Granny was an intensely organized and neat person, down to the point where everything in her home was in its place, organized by category, size, color, function, etc. As she was only gone from this earth for two years at the time I met my BF, I was still missing her terribly, we were superclose. (Back to the story, I promise) –> His clothes were organized by color and category!! So, there I am, heart all flip-floppy, trying to hide my surprise/joy/sadness and give my opinion on what shirt to wear, all the while knowing that I had found the perfect guy, and even one that my dear Granny would approve of.
So, bees, what are your “I’m in love” moment stories?

@Wonderwoman217: Aw, that is so cute and beautiful. I’m sure your Granny is smiling right now 🙂
To be honest, it was love at first sight. I never thought this was possible – I didn’t think it even existed! We met at a Halloween party and the minute I saw him, I knew I wanted to talk to him. We ended up talking the whole night and he walked me home. When we said goodbye, we looked at each other and in my head I was like, “This is the guy I could be with forever. This is the guy I want to be with forever.” 🙂

This might sound weird…
But I knew our first date, but only after our first kiss. I was hopeful during dinner, and even before then. I was even amused because I thought, well, if this is IT then I was really looking for the wrong guys before. But when we kissed, it was like that feeling of deja vu. You know? As soon as it happened, it I pulled away because I was like… whoa. What was that? And it even compelled me to annouce to my dad after my date that I thought this was it.
And it was.
And… I didn’t even share this story with my soon to be fiance… when I asked him when he knew, he said, “Our first kiss. I don’t know why.” 🙂

As a little back story – we were friends online for 7 years before we met up. When we were both finally single at the same time and in the right place, I said lets meet up for a drink, and he came and picked me up from my house.
The second I opened the door I knew. I just thought “I am in trouble here” because I just had this strange feeling, like this was the guy. We had a drink, then went and sat on the beach for ages talking and then he dropped me home and we were both stalling ending the date and then he held my hand and I just about died! We had our first kiss and pretty much were inseperable from then on.
The “Wow I really do love you” feelings happened about a month later… I had a series of bad luck – my house got flooded and my ex was harassing me and every time something bad happened, he dropped what he was doing to help me out, or hold me while I cried and that’s when I knew this guy was unlike anyone else!
Waiting for him to say I love you though was a different story! He told me after about 2 months but he was sooo nervous to say it!

We had been seeing each other seriously for about a month (but we knew each other longer), and we were cuddling together at my friend’s house after a party (she let us spend the night in her guest room). A couple days before we started saying “I like you” every chance we could get. When we saw each other at work, when he would leave to go home, or just because. It was silly but the cutest thing, too. My friend said she wanted to throw up, but don’t trust her, lol.
Back to us cuddling: after exchanging a ton of kisses, “I like you” became “I like you very much.” Then we looked deep into each other’s eyes (I know it sounds corny but it was extremely romantic) and finally admitted that we both really meant “I love you.” Every now and then I’ll tell him I “like” him and we both start grinning like little kids.

Had to pipe up for the less fairy-tale side of the world… (although you all have lovely stories!)
I have no idea! lol. We had kind of an emotionally messed-up start. He had been living with a girl who moved out without even telling him. I had been with a guy for 5 years. We met each other just a few months later and I think we were both still hurt and being really careful. Then he said he loved me after 5 weeks and it just freaked me out because I was just really not there yet and still really scared/guarded about being in another relationship. But… there was something about him that was just totally worth sticking around for. I have no idea when the moment was, it wasn’t something he said or something he did or a premonition. It was just one day I realized that it was all RIGHT. I wanted to be with him forever. I got past being scared about being hurt and could just…. be…. with him. And it was easy. 🙂

I fell in love with my SO at a college homecoming rally. We had only been dating a few months and he asked me if I would go with him. Homecoming has never been a big deal to me, HS or college, so I really didn’t want to go. He finally convinced me to go with him and it was really fun. We were standing watching fireworks going off to Rascal Flatts version of that Life is a Highway song he wrapped his arms around me and asked me if I was glad I came. I knew then. He brought out the best in me, made me try news things and I never wanted that feeling to end. Four years later I am more in love than ever.

I knew I was in love with SO about a month into dating.
You know how they say women marry their fathers? Well, I totally think that is true.
My dad died when I was 11. I miss him so much, it’s not even funny. I get so sad when I think about how he’ll never walk me down the aisle or see his grandchildren. But when I was growing up, he was a wonderful dad. He always did this one thing that really stuck with me….Whenever he would bring home a pizza he would walk in the door and sing “piiiiizza maaaan!” and do this little whistle thing.
One day about a month after SO and I started dating, he said after work he was going to bring over a pizza in a movie. So, I’m standing there in my kitchen doing the dishes. I hear my front door open, and a man sing “Piiiiizzaaaa maaaaaan!” and do THE SAME EXACT WHISTLE my dad always did. I literally dropped this dish in the sink and broke it. I could have sworn my father was there. I turned around, and it was SO standing there with a big smile on his face. I had NEVER ever told SO the story about my dad and the whistle. I fell in love with him at that very moment. I felt like it was my dads way of saying “Here honey…THIS is the man I always wanted you to find. He’s all yours!”

@Young.love:Awwww, sniff sniff, I teared up and got chills reading your post! My moment was similar as well, in regards to a passed loved one. I felt the same way, it was like my Granny was giving me “a sign” that he was the one! Again, sniff sniff, what a beautiful, touching story 🙂

We had been dating about two months and decided to take a trip to see Idyllwild, spend the night at his grandmother’s house and spend some time in her town before heading home. We were laying in bed, trying to go to sleep in his grandmother’s spare bedroom and it just dawned on me. I didn’t tell him right away– it took me a couple of weeks. I knew he wasn’t ready to say it back, but I said it anyway. He said it back about a month later, on Valentine’s Day. Awwwwww. 🙂

We started off slow, like really slow. I knew I sort of liked him, then I knew I really liked him when he asked me to be his date for his brother’s wedding-after only “dating” for a few weeks! But the moment I knew I loved him was 4 months later. I went to school in another state but came up to visit for a weekend (and there were 2 weddings that weekend). At his other brother’s wedding the favors were cds of love songs. We went back to his house, put the cd on, and cuddled and slow danced! Yes, slow danced, like in a movie! I had known I loved him for a while, and we were doing the whole “I really, really, really, really like you a lot” bit for some time by now, and we were laying on the floor (we didn’t care) and saying that and cuddling and kissing and I just knew he was the one 🙂
ps-we didnt say I love you until 2months later, but partly because I was at school during the mean time and we did it the next time we saw each other in person

I’m not waiting anymore, but I hope you ladies don’t mind me jumping in to say that both of your posts made me so choked up!
I had a similar experience when I picked out my wedding dress – my mom and I were walking up to pay for it, and “Fields of Gold” by Sting came on over the speakers. It was my grandpa’s favorite song! It was a really bittersweet moment, but my mom said she knew that he liked our choice 🙂 The lyrics are amazing too.
To the original question: I knew my Fiance was “the one” a few months into dating, when we left a wedding early, picked up snacks and a pack of cards from a gas station, booked a hotel room, and just had the most fun, silly night watching Pineapple Express and doing nothing. True love!

I really don’t have a clue. When I met FH, I was going thru a horrible divorce from my abusive ex. I was open to companionship, but nothing more. FH came along & I liked how bright & well informed he is, but it was strictly companionship only. I also was taken with his good manners–my friends called him Mr Gentleman.
It was nice having someone come around to pick me up & take me out for nice dinners with zero expectations. That went on for a full 8 mos.
And we had a lot in common, very similar backgrounds & beliefs.
I do remember when it dawned on me that he could be a keeper. I have large dogs with lots of personality who love people & attention. Every other guy I dated claimed to love dogs but then whined about dog hair, dogs jumping up for a kiss, etc.
Mr Gentleman started bringing an old jacket & sweats along so he could change & play with the dogs. Hmmmm. That really impressed me. He loves dogs. He’s a problem solver. He didn’t gripe, just found a solution.

I knew right from the start. I spotted him at temple and thought “that looks like someone I’d like to marry.” A month later was our first date, and as soon as I left I called my sister and bf and told them both I was in love. They thought I was crazy!
