I knew I wanted to marry him because I always want him to be around. That’s the short of it. I can not imagine him and I not being together.

The long list is: he makes me laugh even when I’m upset, he is easy going, he has a heart-melting smile and a sexy body, he is easy to talk to, he absolutely loves me, we can spend 28 hours straight riding in a car together and have a ridiculously fun time the whole ride, he is fiercely loyal, he encourages me to become the best me I can, he does little things to show me his love like surprising me with McDonalds ice cream cones or sending me reminder text messages of things I need to remember, he is a kid at heart and plays/wrestles with me, he is totally honest… etc etc. He hit all my requirements on my “list”, which I never expected to find. Plus, he readily admits that he never expected to find someone as perfect for him as me. πŸ™‚

He is kind to everyone not just me. He has a really big heart. He is not selfish and he is the most honest and caring person I have ever met. He is really unbelievably sweet. We always talk out any problems we ever have. He is everything I have ever wanted. The most handsome man I have ever laid my eyes on and we love each other!!!!

There’s a long list of things I love about him. We work really well together. We rarely fight, and when we do, we try not to put the blame on one another, but figure out what the problem is and how to fix it.

Plus, we dated in high school, broke up for 3 years, and got back together. During those three years, nobody I met was EVER as good as he was; I was always disappointed. When we got back together, we picked up where we left off, and years later we are still happy. πŸ™‚

When we were 15 I told him he was my soul mate (cheesy, I know), and I meant it.

He’s the only man I’ve loved and WANTED to marry. He’s the only man whose child I’ve wanted to have, hence Baby Bear coming in 6wks.LOL

I didn’t meet him until I was 27, so there were plenty of men I dated around with (among other things,LOL) up until that point, so I’m confident I know what I want. πŸ™‚

The day I met him, we clicked instantly. (We worked together at a sandwich shop) We were laughing and talking about semi-deep stuff… 

I left work feeling like I had just met a long-lost friend.I could NOT stop smiling that whole day. I knew everything changed that day. It was not love at first sight. It was my best friend at first meeting. From that day on we haven’t stopped talking. We started dating about a year after we met and have been dating for 4.5 years. 

He’s my hands down best friend. That’s how I know we’ll last.

I love my SO with all my heart, he is the one person I can truly be myself around and have fun with, together we’re so much better than apart. He’s family oriented like me, and we just build each other up. I can’t wait to wake up next to him for the rest of my life… once we have that sparkly ring and a place of our own lol.

I am better person because of him and life without him just simply wouldn’t be as fulfilling or as fun. I love him more than can be expressed in a blog posting and despite the issues that arise in our relationship, despite the questions, the arguments or anything else that comes along never once did I or do I question whether we belong together.

We are like peas and carrots. Wink

He is the most beautiful person I’ve ever met (On the inside, though the outside isn’t bad either!), and I am continually in awe of him. Every day. He helps me remember how to be a better version of myself. But though I spend a lot of time thinking I am EXTREMELY lucky, we are essentially the same. His brother commented on how I was the “female version” of him.


Plus…I think God wants us to be together. There are WAY too many freaky coincidences and things leading us to one another for anything else to be true.

He can kiss me and make me completely forget where I am. I always thought love at first sight was something that Walt Disney made up, and that only little girls believed in it. But the first moment I saw him something happened. I felt something I never felt before, and haven’t felt since.

He can make the anxiety no pills can cure dissipate just by hugging me. He talks about how he wants to take me to bed, but he also talks about how he wants us to cook dinner together and do yardwork together and grow old together. I’m kind of an odd duck, and he just GETS me, and doesn’t judge. And I wouldn’t change a thing about him. I recognize he has faults, and even what they are, but I am completely immune to them, and in fact find them endearing. And it seems like he’s the same way.

@irishbee: When I think of my future, I can’t imagine it with anyone else. He is absolutely the only person I see and want a future with. I look forward to being husband and wife and becoming parents together. We have already gone through quite a bit together and no matter what happens, we still come out together. It’s hard to explain, but it gets to a point where you know when it’s right. I’m 26 so i’ve dated other guys and never felt I was meant to marry them.

Neither of us wants to be like my parents (who are together but could kill each other at any moment). We don’t ever fight, we calmly talk about how we feel and what we should do to fix the problem. I still find myself smiling whenever I think about him (2 years!) I can imagine us walking down the street with our future kids… whenever I think about a wedding I get the most excited about the morning after…. 

There are a million little things that tell me that he’s the one I want to be with for the rest of my life. πŸ™‚

Short answer.  I just knew.  I was always a girl who always said I would never get married.  I wasn’t interested in it.  I dated.. alot.. and each relationship lasted 6 months.  Tops.  And in all those dating relationships there was always something missing. 

Then we I started dating my Fiance, everything changed.  We made it to our first year of dating and I knew.  

He is my best friend.  We laugh together, we have some similar interests.  He is my rock, someone I trust with my life.  I can’t imagine a day that we won’t be together and I wouldn’t ever want to be with someone else.  I love him with my whole heart and soul.

He’s the kindest, most loyal, loving, family oriented person I know. I knew I wanted to marry him after 2 months of dating. I was telling some of my friends at that point that I knew this was going to be the father of my children!

Plus, he makes me smile.. all the time πŸ™‚
