    This might be controversial, but, I didn’t consider my hubs “the one” until exchanging our wedding vows. I think he’d say the same. We knew that each other was the one we wanted, but, until we said “I do”, there was still an out.

    • Wedding: July 2017

    Not exactly love at first sight but Fiance and I both had a very special feeling about each other from the first date.  Before he met me, Fiance had been a perpetual bachelor with no plans of settling down with anyone , but that changed as soon as I came along :). We got engaged after 2.5 years of being together because that feeling never faded even though we went through asked tough times and learned all the nitty gritty about each other by living together for over a year.  So I would say yes, we knew right away but still took our time getting engaged and married because we’re still young and in no rush.

    We said the first “I love you” at about 4 months, got engaged at 2 years (last Saturday!) and will be married before 4 years together. We knew each other for 2 years before we started dating as well.

    justinsgirl2016:  Me and my fiancé dated for 5 years before he proposed, around our anniversary. 

    I knew I loved him after 6 months, I was a bit slower than he was but I feel that it’s something that can’t be rushed! We started having mentions of getting engaged about 2-3 years in but the initial plan was for us to move in together first but he basically got impatient! Lol. For me I felt that it was going to happen at some point and let it take its natural course without me mentioning and nagging it. I just felt that while yes it’s what I wanted in the long run, our relationship is the best and healthy. I didn’t need a ring and a big wedding to tell me that, being with him is more important. The length of the dating and engagement was never really a deal breaker for me.

    • Wedding: November 2017

    I voted “other”.  We dated for several months before I knew I loved him, and even then it took more time before I thought about marrying him.  It took him longer lol.  We got engaged in June, after 5 years of dating, and 4 years living together.  No date set yet, but we’re working on it haha.  There were plenty of times I wondered if he actually wanted to get married, because he didn’t really want to discuss it and didn’t seem in any hurry.  Our relationship has always been great though so I just waited it out.  Now that we are engaged I think he’s more excited than I am!

    justinsgirl2016:  I was my DH’s first Girlfriend, but I think we knew pretty early on that we wanted to be together. That being said, we were together for six years before we got engaged. I didn’t do an ultimatum or anything, I was happy being together and being with him was more important to me than being someone else’s wife. He told me that once he knew that, he couldn’t wait to propose 🙂 Even after six years he was SO nervous to propose, I had no idea it was coming. We got married this July after getting engaged last October.

    Love at first sight! Engaged after 5 years. Married after seven months School and finding stable careers were our main priority, but we were looking at rings the first month of dating and had already said I love you. I never felt like I was waiting. I was in college then graduate school. It just a natural progression for us – we had goals we wanted completed before tying the knot.

    justinsgirl2016:  Fiance was in love after a month into our relationship, it took me about 4 months. Engaged after 2.5 years. We will be married at almost 4.5 years together.

    I also voted “other.” We met almost a year before we started dating at our freshman orientation. We ended up being randomly placed next door to each other in our freshman dorm a few months later and became really good friends. We had a couple of messy FWB months, and then started dating towards the end of our freshman year. Because he had been a friend for awhile, I already knew and loved him…in a friendly way. Those feelings transformed and I knew I loved him probably within a month of starting to date. The feeling was mutual. We didn’t get engaged for almost 5.5 years after we started dating, and were married a month after our 7 year dating anniversary!

    I knew he was the one after a few months. It kind of hit me that I was in love with him. He proposed to me after a year and some change of dating. We will get married in 2017 and by then will be together around 3 years.

    Met each other Sept 2014, started dating Oct, had wedding date Nov, got engaged Dec, moved in January, getting married in 9 days!!  Each day since I met him has been the best day of my life 😀  I was Facebooking people in October that this was going to end up with rice or Haagen Dasz.  And it wouldn’t be pints of Haagen Dasz, it would be gallons.  First guy I ever dated/held hands with/etc., and I still lived home with mom at 36.

    I knew he was the one within weeks of meeting him but I didn’t tell him that. Niether of us said “I love you” until we were YEARS into our relationship. When we met we were both freshly hurt from previous partners. We got engaged at 4 years 6 months and will be married right before our 6 year anniversary.

    justinsgirl2016:  I selected ‘other’. He actually lived next door to me, and we had a fling when we were 16/17. He then moved, then I saw him out of the blue when we were both 19. We started casually seeing each other, and became ‘official’ after about 4 weeks. Cannot honestly remember when we said ‘I love you’, or when I felt it; a few months in perhaps?

    We got engaged after over 5 years together, married after nearly 9, and have been together over 10 years now, married for 16 months. I felt ready for marriage at about 3.5 years in, but circumstances (finances mainly) prevented us getting married sooner. That said, I was honestly in no rush as I knew we both wanted it.
