Oh, that’s a really sweet story!  My Fi and I met in college.  He asked one of our mutual friends to find out if I might be interested in him, but I told her "Hell, no!"  One night everyone in the dorms was gone, and we ended up…  "talking" all night long.  (hehehe  πŸ™‚ Two days later he told me he wanted everything or nothing and I had to make a choice to committ or get out!  We went on an official first date a couple days later, and I knew almost immediately after that. 

The funny thing is that at the time I had a crush on one of our other mutual friends.  During a camping trip with all my girlfriends, my Fi, and the crush, I actually told my girls I was going to marry the next guy I dated.  Of course, at that time I thought I would be dating the crush next, but it’s funny how things work out!

I worked with Fiance for about 1 1/2 years, and then I moved away for 6 months. When I moved back (got homesick) we started dating. I knew he was the one 3 months into our relationship when I had to spend 5 days away from him.

My Fiance and I met the end of our first week in College, freshman year. I lived on the art floor, and he lived on the music floor directly below mine in the dorms. Some friends and I were going around to different floors trying to meet people, and we saw him and invited him up a floor to play guitar for us.

 He then played and sang for us for 3 hours.

I knew that night.

We were exclusive 2 days later, and 3.5 years later we’re engaged! The big day is 2 years away :).

We met at a local bar on a Sunday night watching a cover band of our favorite band {Allman Brothers} and a couple of days later we went to see the real band.

 

I knew he was the one when we were "just friends" a couple of months later and trying to set each other up, I finally realized that he was the guy I needed to be set up with! He’s patient, kind, fun, smart, and a wonderful father and husband. What more can a girl ask for?

We had a few mutual friends in college and had met in passing at a couple parties.  So when we had a random history class together (unrelated to our majors, we both just love history) I went up to him and asked him to sit with me!  Then we started dating maybe a month later, and on our second date we had the most RIDICULOUS conversation and we both cite it as our like, "Wow, this is it." moment.

Ok, are you ready for this… I met my Fiance online of all places.  He sent me a message on April 2nd of 2008, I replied on April 4th and from that day for about a week we emailed everyday and then I gave him my phone number.  He called me and left a message and I returned his call and 4 1/2 hours later we hung up the phone.  Everyday after that we were on the phone for at least an hour each nite if not more.  He was living in FL at the time and I was in KS.  3 weeks after talking with him on the phone, I decided to fly out and meet him.  He was moving back to KS that same time, so I flew out and then drove back home with him in a UHaul.  Figured if we made it that long together and still got along, we were good!!!  Let me just say, I had NEVER done anything like that before, but if felt right and felt like I had known him forever.  October 10th of 2008 he proposed and we are getting married Oct. 3, 2009.  I knew from the 1st phone call that he was "the ONE".  Can’t wait to be married to him!!

We met in college. Nothing crazy exciting about that story. I think I knew he was THE ONE about 1.5 years into our relationship. I can’t remember the exact moment because I never had that sudden emphany, just this *feeling* that grew stronger and stronger. I remember laying in bed next to him one night (when we lived together that summer) thinkiing to myself, "yeah i could do this forever"….and then when I realized how heart broken that I had to go back to school and we couldn’t spend more time together. He never told me he wanted to marry me, but told me he wanted to keep me around forever. He didn’t want to say he wanted to marry me until he actually asked me. He finally said that sometime right before his deployment to assure me we’d get married when he got back. Every time I went to visit him this feeling and inkling that he was "the one" just kept growing stronger. But I was a skeptic and decided to wait and see how it goes b/c i’m just that way. I was only a baby sophomore in college, lol. We got engaged the day after i graduated college.

what great stories!  i thought i’d add mine b/c it is a little different.  my Fiance and i met at a mutual friend’s party (though we didn’t know one another).  Also, it was a gay party – sooo…we were basically the only single straight guests there.  i told my mom ‘it was like shooting fish in a barrel!’  anyway, by the 3rd date (we met on Sunday and the 3rd date was Thursday of the same week) I knew he would be the man I married.  Something about his face looked so familiar to me, it was like i had always known him, and would always know him.  It was like ‘hey you! there you are.’

These are such wonderful stories! I met my fiance at a friend’s wedding. We sat at the same table and after some small talk realized that we lived on the same street, just two blocks from each other. We just hit it off and started dating shortly after. All the guys I dated before him were real jerks, like they’d make me be the ones to pick them up for dates, and then they’d tell me they "forgot their wallet" so I would be forced to pay for stuff. But when my fiance pulled up into my driveway and stepped out of the car holding a bouquet of flowers, I thought to myself "where have you been all my life." I’ve been smitten by him ever since.

I met my Fiance though work. He works for one of my vendors. We talked on the phone through work only for 1 1/2 years, but we never met in person, but there was always this unspoken connection. He would tell the guys at his job "I would marry that girl sight unseen" And I used to tell my warehouse guy " I could talk to that man for hours" He just has the most incredible voice. Well finally he had to make a delivery to my office cuz someone was out sick. Thats how we met in person. Then things just progressed from there. There are are other things that led up to everything but I could write for hours about them. After talking on the phone (out of work) for hours on end. Then just hanging out, I just knew. Now we are geting married in 13 days!! EEEEKKKK!

I met my guy when I was waitressing midnight shift at the Waffle House! He was one of the regulars – he’d come in when he got off work and act as "security" (he’s in law enforcement) for free coffee.

I knew he was a great guy from get-go but what really locked it for me was when I saw how he is with my children. There’s a huge difference between a father and a daddy… He’s daddy. No question.

I met my fiance in Italy.  I was there on vacation and my Fiance was in port there (he’s in the Navy stationed in CT).  We were lost and his friend asked if we needed help.  After chatting it up with them, they ask us if we wanted to go and have drinks.  Sure why not?!  The funny thing was that my Fiance was a bit arrogant that night.  Regardless, we decided to meet the next day at the Vatican and go to dinner. 

Well, the next day, my Fiance was much more quieter.  The funny thing is we met at the Vatican, and there was something about him as he stood there during one of the masses.  I didn’t realize until then how attractive he was.  Needless to say, we clicked and by the end of the night he pulled me aside from everyone and we had our first kiss.  He was leaving the next day so we exchanged information (email, number, etc) thinking I would never see him again.

We emailed each other through out his deployment (5 months of it).  Nothing serious until he called one day from Dubai.  After our 3 hour conversation, I could not get him out of my head.  I think there was something about this talk that made me feel that he was the one.  Six months after we first met, he flew to California to visit me.  I knew once I saw him again at the airport and the kiss we had.  This confirmed my feelings of him being the ONE!

I met my Fiance on match.com!  He was the first (and only) person I met on that site after joining.  When I first signed up, I looked through all the guys profiles they sent me and he had this totally original listing and photo (it was a sepia photo and he was dressed in a suit and a hat in the style of the 20s) and I just thought it was so brave to post something like that!  Creative. πŸ™‚  

We corresponded online for about a month before I finally agreed to talk to him on the phone and then we talked for 6 or 7 hours (no kidding) nearly every night for several weeks before I agreed to meet him.  I was more nervous about meeting him because I liked him so much from our conversations that I was afraid there’s be no "spark" when we met face to face.  But that was not the case.  That was Jan 2007 and we’ve been together now for 2.5 years and are getting married in November!

I don’t think there was ever a specific moment I said he’s "The One".  Probably because I really don’t believe in the whole idea that there’s only ONE person for every person.  What I do know is that I trust him with my future totally and without hesitation.  He’s my best friend.

By the way, my stepbrother got married about 3 years ago to his wife, who he ALSO met on match.com.  (It’s the whole reason I joined in the first place.)  And he was the first man she met on match.com as well!
