    I knew in our first conversation but it was years before we were able to finaly get together and he tells me that I held on like a pitbull ever since.

    I knew immediately before we were even dating. I even told a friend this was going to be the man that I would marry. We dated for years before he proposed and I’ll never forget that feeling of knowing!

    This is going to sound absurd but I knew the minute he walked into the college classroom of the class we took together.

    I knew when we first met that he was different than every other guy I knew, but it took 4 months of dating to know that he was my forever. It took him another 4 months after that to come to the same conclusion.

    I knew pretty much right away. Definitely within the first month!

    I knew very early on. Everything just clicked. I know thats corny but there was never that feeling of awkward nervousness or feeling like I need to impress him or hide things about myself that others find awkward or weird (because lets face it I’m a strange person).

    My mother actually told me to hide things about myself (like my insane love of all things christmas and/or disney or my quirky personality saying I should act more “normal” if I wanted to keep him).

    I never had to do any of that. He just let me be me and loved me more for it.

    The first month of our relationship was a little dry and I was started to think he wasnt for me but we decided to go to the mountains for a weekend and stay in a nice hotel and we had such an amazing time and there was one morning where I woke up before him and I just knew that he was the one. The funny part of this story is that a month later I found out I was pregnant and my son was concieved during that weekend away. We have been together ever since.

    I can’t say I knew for sure he was the “one” I was going to marry right away, but with him it definitely was different from the beginning. The first night we met we were in a really public place, but somehow his eyes kept finding mine and I would see him staring at me from across the room. Normally that would creep me out, but I was attracted to him like a magnet. There was some real electricty between us. That same weekend we went on our first date and when he drove me home he said something like, “Wow, I can’t believe how addicted to you I am already.” I know that sounds cheesy, but at the time it was exactly how I felt too. I couldn’t bare to be apart from him after only a day or two. Within a month we said “I love you” and after only 2 months of dating we moved in together. I truly think it was one of those “love at first sight” things because we met and have been together ever since with no doubt of whether or not we should be. We’re lucky in that respect.

    I knew he was the one on the second date.

    But… I toyfully even say it was before we met.

    We met online and talked for hours every day for about a week before meeting.  We just clicked in every single way, so now, if the chemistry was there in person, it was perfect.

    WEll our first date there was chemistry that was off the charts, but the date was awkward and not really good at all, but we immediately called each other after separating and made another date.  Still not sure why.  He met me at work for lunch the next day and the rest was history.


    Good luck with your new man!  Keep your head but give your heart

    It was pretty obvious for both of us right from the start. We are both very level-headed and try to think about things logically, but when we got together things started moving faster than either of us would have ever imagined. By month 6 we were living together, which is so not like either of us! But it felt right, and (come to find out) was right!

    We were both young (and are still young in my opinion) and we were not ready to take on the commitment of marriage right away. We talked about marriage for years though. We were together just 2 months shy of our 3 year anniversary when he popped the question… and after a nearly 4 month engagement we will be married this July!

    3 years.

    I don’t care if that seems like too long to know, or like I should have known sooner, but I was 19 when we started dating and didn’t really take the relationship seriously until I graduated. A few months after graduation I sat down and really thought about why I was with him and what I wanted our future to be.

    I think I would have known sooner, but I was so concerned with school and was so happy with the way things were at that moment in time that I just never stopped to really think about it.

    Actually, I think I didnt respond right… I didnt know he was the one I was going to marry until he actually ASKED ME 🙂 but I was seriously hoping he would be from very early on. Im just a really rational person, don’t like to think too far ahead about things I can’t control.

    There are girls who have been dating someone 1 month and know for certain he is “the one” but it doesn’t work out, then what? haha

    SO I didnt know until we were engaged and now about to be married, but I definitly had that feeling that I could see him in my future. He has such a good heart and we have the same values and plans, so I knew I would be very lucky if it all worked out. And Wa-la. Here I am on weddingbee:)

    While it took us about 3 months to vocalize it, I think we knew really VERY early on. From the moment we first laid eyes on eachother it was so different. I felt like I was literally in a fairy tale for the first 6 months. Like I was in a dream, or constantly on a high. I would get light headed at the very sight of him. He quickly was voicing “I’ve never been this comfortable around anyone before” within the first few weeks. He even absent mindedly told me he loved me after we had been dating 2 weeks. 

    I told my friends after he walked away “I just met my future husband!”, but I was totally joking. I think…well, apparently I wasn’t.
