    I put twice, but I have to say after you have "the one" kind of love like I do with my hubs, it just makes me think that before was just more like puppy love.

    I thought it was love when I was with an ex … but that "love" is nothing compared to the love I have now.   Don’t know if that makes sense. I guess I’ve said "I love you" to two people — but looking back that first one was not love!

    I put twice too, but completely agree with Lillindy’s comment.

    First time – a long term relationship in my early-mid twenties to one of my closest friends from college who I’m no longer friends with unfortunately, but taught me so much about relationships – you can’t force "the one" kind of love – even when you are the best of friends and love each other. 

    Second time – my husband…the best kind of love that I never imagined I would find ๐Ÿ™‚

    I actually wrote three.  I have been in 3 relationships where I said I love you, and I meant it all three times, whether or not I feel differently now about the man I hope to marry.  I don’t know, I have always felt like changing your mind about that kind of thing after the fact is somehow kind of cheap (for me, not commenting on anyone else’s lives). If the question were how many serious loves have you had, my answer would be different.

    I was in love with my son’s father but after six years realized it wasn’t enough. I was also in love with a man after him that I saw for two years that also didn’t work for many reasons but the feeling were there. Now I have love that is real in every aspect, my husband to be.

    Two for me, Mr. K and my ex-boyfriend who was directly before Mr. K. It’s one of those things where I believe you may love someone but then go on to love someone else in a completely different way. That doesn’t make it any less valid in my opinion, just makes it different.

    Twice.  The relationship prior to the one with my Fiance lasted three years, and I loved the guy. But after a while I realized that he was not the kind of person I wanted to be with forever, nor was his family the kind I wanted to marry into (even though I loved them to pieces).  We’re still friends, but I have absolutely zero attraction to him anymore and my Fiance knows as much. The two of them even get along when they have to.

    The love I feel for my Fiance is very different, and definitely better…and I know that he IS the kind person I can be with forever.

    I’d say I’ve been in love 3 times, one of which is – of course – with my Husband-to-be. ๐Ÿ™‚ One was that sweet, puppy love at 17/18 years old and lasted a while until I realized that a puppy love wasn’t going to last a lifetime for me. Then there was my first real love, which ended sweetly for reasons of distance and timing. And now there’s my last, forever love. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad I’ve had the experiences with love that I did, since they primed me for what I have now.
