Just that strange feeling. I knew I wanted to marry him right away. I had never felt that way about anyone before.

He and I were actually friends for a long time before we got together as a couple. I realized he was “the one” almost immediately after we started dating, but of course didn’t share that for a long time. 😉 Here are the things that made me realize we’re a great fit:

  • We love doing ANYTHING together. We could be taking out the trash or going out for a nice dinner, and we’ll have fun.
  • Our personalities tend to balance one another out. I’m more of the stress-case, while he calms me down.
  • We have the same desires for the future regarding kids, lifestyle, ambitions, etc.
  • We have the same beliefs and passions about the “important” things in life like religion, family, society, etc.
  • We enjoy the same hobbies.
  • I could go on and on! 🙂

im with mwitter80 on this one….i cant say there was one thing that made me know he was the person i am meant to be with. i just sort of knew….just like a gut feeling. I had been in several long relationships and thought marriage about every one of them but it wasnt until i met FH that i just knew that this was it for me.

I agree that it was just a gut feeling I had, one that I had never had before (even though I had been in love before, so these were different feelings lol).

Also, the more time we spend together. . .we are just two peas in a pod. We share all the same major beliefs and opinions, we are best friends, we have fun together no matter what we are doing. We don’t fight, we support each other. He just feels like home to me.

I definitly did not get that warm fuzzy when we first met and started dating. I had huge doubts cause he was younger and I had never dated anyone of a different nationality.  But over time, things just worked themself out, we have tons of fun together, learned we have much of the same views on life/budgets/money and similar goals.  I don’t believe in “the one” per se, I believe in accepting and commiting yourself to the “one” at the point in time that is right and standing by that choice.

It was just a feeling…we “work”. One day we were sitting on the couch and he as talking (we werent dating YET but it was just around the corner) and he was talking about his friends and family and i just thought “this is the man i will marry”. Turns out that night he thought that same about me. it was “just their”

I knew straight away the 2nd time I saw him. The first time I was like, I kinda like this guy, but the 2nd time, it was like something hit me 😉

I also had the “just knew” feeling. I’ve never felt as secure and at home with someone in my entire life. We have been inseperable ever since we met. We seriously haven’t been apart longer than 24hrs since our frist date. I look at him now and just feel this overwhleming sense of love and stability. I couldn’t be happier!

It’s funny, when we first met it was through mutual friends and I was NOT interested at all.  After some time I definitely got the feeling he was interested in me, but being stubborn-minded and usually trusting my gut feeling about things, I stood on my ‘strictly platonic’ ground, even after we went out a few times but nothing romantic ever came close to happening. 

Finally at the end of a social gathering he walked me outside on my way to the subway and basically stopped me in my tracks said nerouvsly “look, I like you and I think we could be a good thing together.  I’m not sure how you feel about it, and it’s fine if you don’t want to be anything more than friends, but I just wanted to know either way where you stand.”  Seriously, right then and there I saw him in a different light and he was just sooo adorable.  I was thinking, this guy is really something, how come I never saw it before? 

 Now we do everything together and we’re so right for each other, I can barely remember what it was like to think so ‘platonically’ about him.  I always envisioned myself to be in a happy and well rounded relationship, but it still blows my mind how GOOD it actually is. 

Almost three years later, he proposed on the very spot on the street where he stopped me to lay it all on the line.  I’ve never been so happy to be wrong about my ‘gut’

I was totally infatuated with him since the moment we met. We didn’t speak to each other for almost 3 years and I thought about him every day. But when he came back into my life I didn’t jump all over him, I held him at arms length until he showed me he was serious. The icing on the cake is that he has always made me feel safe and secure in our relationship. It’s never been this way before because I’ve never loved anyone this much.

I knew after like 2 weeks! We went to the beach and the sun was setting and I could feel him looking at me and as cheesy as it sounds when i looked at him he said, ” your eyes have a little green in them.”  Awwwww  🙂

I felt totally different about him from the moment we met. I’d never felt that way about any other boyfriend.

Something just clicked.

Prior to that I couldn’t understand when one of my friends kept talking about how she “wanted to marry” her boyfriend. I didn’t understand how you could be sure like that.

After I met Fiance, I knew I wanted to marry him.

I knew it the moment he came to my house on our first date. Knocked on my door, sat down with my dad and had a conversation with him for 1/2 while I finished getting ready. As soon as I was leaving, my dad told me, “he’s so noble and humble.”

After that, sparks flew, I had the most amazing date ever and 3 1/2 years later was proposed to at the same exact spot of our first date.

Ain’t love grand?!

I think I always knew, but what confrimed it was when my mom got sick 2 years ago and he dropped everything to be with me.  I knew right then and there he was a keeper.
