We started dating super young (14) so wasn’t really thinking about whether he was husband material or not! A few years in I really couldn’t picture life without him but was still too young to be thinking about marriage lol. By the time we were in our early 20s we knew we would be getting married in the next few years 🙂

Within the first day I was captivated. Within two weeks I knew I wanted to see where we would go. After a year (specifically after everything we went through in that first year) on the night we moved into our new home…I was certain what we had could be and would be unbreakable so long as we work hard for it. So yep. 🙂

Before we were “official”. We were getting to know each other and I was out and about with a friend for the day. I was sending him pictures of where I was and jokingly said “come and find me”. 

He went to two different beaches before he got to the right one and by the time he  was at the right beach, we had already left – it was rush hour in Southern CA in the summer. 

When I had told my friend what he had done, she turned to me and said “holy shit, you’re gonna marry him!” 

And here we are…

Oh man, I must have been a late bloomer! We started dating when we were 21 and even though I loved him, I wasn’t totally sure that I would marry him for probably almost 2 years. Something big happened around our 2 year mark that made me realize how much I loved him and how I couldn’t imagine my future without being with him. I remember very clearly the moment when I knew we were never breaking up

After about two or three months of talking online. I never phrased it as him being “the one”, to be honest. But I had this sense that if for some reason it didn’t work out with him, there would be no point being with anyone else, ever. Dramatic, I know, but I was only 17.

From the first couple of hours we both knew it was something special – we spent all night talking, we loved each other by the morning. I would say it was a little rocky getting use to his work schedule in the beginning and it did put some doubt into my heart – but we knew we were in love and going to marry by the third month 😊

Before we were even together. He had been one of my best friends for 9 years and one night that we hung out and I was driving him home, something was just different. It was a night in February and I just didn’t want to take him home. When we pulled up infront of his place, I got out of my car to hug him and as we hugged it started to snow. Softly but big, fluffy beautiful flakes in the streetlights. Then he leaned over and kissed me. It was the most romantic moment of my entire life. That’s when we both knew.

Two weeks, for me! We communicated so well with each other, and both of us are pretty reserved and not particularly good at communicating with others.

The first night I met him.

We’d never met before but he was friends with the Boyfriend or Best Friend of one of my best friends so I’m not sure how I hadn’t met him before. Nothing happened but we bumped into eachother almost 2 months later on a night out and swapped numbers.

I felt comfortable with him from the get go, could completely be myself and he’s the funniest person I’ve ever met in my life.

polkadots12:  it was a series of events. The first day we met in person and he put his hand on the small if my back to guide me through a crowd. It was the first time he touched me and his touch was different. When his sister died and for the first time in my life I realize that I came second (yup I was selfish and self centered) and not only did I not mind, but I wanted to put my needs aside to make sure his were met. And that I supported him how he needed to be supported not how I wanted him to need to be supported. When my dog died and some one in his family said “sorry about your dog” and he responded “she wasn’t JUST a dog. She was the baby.”  It showed he got me. When he built a horse stall in -20 Minnesota weather so my horse could get into the barn without being hurt. And finally when my mom died and he did what I needed when I needed even when I was moody grieving and a bitch. I knew i could always count on him to understand and support me as a partner.

Five months.  We had been really rocky, on-and-off for the first five months.  We were young and immature and had a lot of growing up to do.

During our last breakup, I went on a date with a man who checked off everything on my “relationship material checklist.”  He was super polite and nice and educated.  He had a good job.  He had a similar upbrining to mine.  And I was bored as hell.

It took a date with the “perfect” man to realize that now-FI was the only person I wanted.  I wanted his humor and booming voice and his dorkiness and his imperfections.  I hugged my date and thanked him for the nice time.

I called now-FI in the parking lot.

From that moment (when he feared I may like another man, and he may actually never get me back, and I discovered that the perfect man wasn’t what I really wanted), our relationship changed.  We started working on ourselves instead of blaming each other.  Amazing changes happened.

Nearly five years later, the ring is on my finger, the venue is booked, the dress is bought, and my mother won’t stop talking about how good he is for me.  She’s right.  <3

I honestly can’t pinpoint exactly but I know it was within the first couple weeks. I remember when we were 3 weeks officially in to our relationship and at the store looking at clothes and he asked me what I thought of something and I said “I would love you no matter what you’re wearing” and then I hid in the store from him because I was so embarrased but he thought it was adorable. About 2 months in we said “I Love You.” BUT before we were even dating my mom made the comment “I’m going to have red-headed grandchildren!” and then laughed. He is the only one of the guys that I dated that she actually approved of and now we are married.
