    I just knew.  I never wanted to get married before dating my Fiance.  Even though my parents are married still (although both on their second marriages), I come from a family of divorce.  So I never really believed in marriage, nor did I ever really think about it growing up.  I had previously dated someone for 6 years and never thought about marrying him.  Within a month of dating my Fiance, I just suddenly realized that he was the one I was going to marry.  He just made me SO happy and I felt like we were best friends so fast.  After 4.5 years, we got engaged and we’ll be getting married about a month after our 6 year anniversary!  (We were only 19 and 21 when we started dating, which is why we have waited so long to get married.)

    I knew after our first few days hanging out together. He was so different than any other guy I had ever met in my life and I was so myself around him. This sounds corny, but being with him was like being at home, it just felt right, it felt like with him is exactly where I was meant to be, always.  We will be getting married 1 week after our 6 year anniversary, and I’m so excited! We never rushed into getting married bc we knew we would marry eachother, so we took the time to buy a house and become financially stable. Now the next chapter begins!

    i can’t remember the exact circumstances that made me think it but I want to say my mom asked how things were going with Darling Husband (while we were dating obviously) and i remember saying out loud “seriously great mom, I’m gong to marry that man” It was like 3 months into our relationship. I had never been so sure about something before.

    I knew almost instantly.. we had been friends for two years and I seen him date other people and he seen me date other people but I always liked him and he later told me he always liked me as well.. but he felt it wasnt the right time.. when we did get together it felt so right from the beginning.. we hit a little bump two years into our relationship but we have hopped over it and now we have been together 4 years and 3 months.. I just know he is the one i will spend the rest of my life with cannot picture life without him/my best friend

    he didn’t make me behave all ‘teenager’, you know, like wanting to know where he was all the time, or demanding him to call me, or stupid stuff like that.

    almost ever girl i know acts like a teenage psycho when with ‘the wrong guy’ but when she finds the right guy suddenly she becomes and adult and has an adult relationship.

    in my experience, anyway.

    Yup, just kinda knew. I doubted it a lot though, I thought I was crazy for feeling like that in a short time but, the longer we have been together, the more that feeling just solidifies.

    For me, it was one of those “I just knew” things. I knew from the beginning that he was the one. I told my parents after our first date that I’d met the man I was going to marry, and they honestly didn’t think I was crazy lol.

     

    When I met Kevin, it was like meeting someone who was DESIGNED solely for me. And it still shocks me to this day that nobody else snatched him up. In fact, he was put DOWN a lot by girls…

     

    Big shock to me… he’s 5,000,000% perfect for me (though obviously not perfect…no one is) 🙂

    It was love at first sight. He walked in the room, and I almost fell out of my chair. haha. It was literally the “bolt of lightning” you hear about in movies. We met, started talking, and 9 months later, we are now living together and couldn’t be happier. Some people don’t believe in fate, but that’s the only way I can explain it. It was just meant to be.

    Another “I just knew” here. There was just something about him that made me go..this is it. I knew within a few weeks that I would marry him. And that didn’t automatically make our relationship easy or perfect, but even through our ups and downs, he’s always just been the one for me.

    For me it’s been this slow, steady feeling that each move we have made (from casual to serious dating, to moving across the country together, to moving in together) has been the right move.  And now it just feels obvious that getting married is the next right thing.  Doesn’t sound very romantic, I know, but I believe a lot in my gut feelings and not a lot in soul mates and that kind of thing so I guess it’s just my feeling that he will be the kind of partner and co-parent that I want in my life and that he is as dedicated as me to making it through the hard stuff and doing whatever it takes to make things work.

    I also just knew, literally the moment we met.

    I pretty much knew right away – I called my mother right after meeting him and I was hysterical. I knew for sure I was going to be with him forever. I opened the door for him and our eyes met and we were both shocked into silence. It was a really big surprise for the both of us.

    My mother knew I was serious – I am extremely unromantic and practical and in all my years of dating she’d never heard me so excited and certain.

    I am a skeptic about things like that, so I have tried to temper myself throughout the relationship to no avail. He proves that he is perfect for me every single day.

    He gets me on a level that nobody else does. He understands all my idiosyncracies without me having to explain or make excuses for them.

    The longer we have been together, the more he feels like home. He really does feel like home.
