Very early. So early that I knew it had to be the real thing after having been in so many situations where we play games and hem and haw for months without even defining what our relationship is at present, let alone make plans for the future. Within 24 hours of meeting him, he told me that he wanted to pursue a long-term relationship with me and I could tell that a relationship with him was worth the effort. We began talking about marriage within a week or so. We dated for nine months and were engaged for nine months. We have been married for nine months.

I told him I loved him about 3 months in, but I knew he was the one when 4 months in I took a 2 week vacation without him to India and he was all I could think about.  Talks of babies and wedding quickly followed.  🙂

i knew pretty much right away. Our first date started off great, and ended badly. i told myself i would never call/text him back and to move on…. much to my suprise i was up all night thinking about him and i just knew i had to be with this man. 15 days after our first date we made our relationship official, about 6 weeks after that he told me he loved me (ok, it was mutual 🙂 ) and about 11 months after that we bought our home together, and 2 years later i am waiting for the honor of being his fiance!

We knew so quickly! 9 days after we started dating he told me he loved me and thought he was going to marry me, and I felt the same way. We got engaged less than 6 months after that. When you know, you know!

It took over a year for me to realize my husband was the one… Then again we started dating when I was 19 so marriage wasnt even on my mind at that point lol

I’m totally in the minority! It took me at least a year before I knew, for sure, that he was the one I wanted to marry. We were long distance the first 3 years, and during that time my mom got ill, I moved back home to care for her and she passed away, so I had other things going on in my life. So I was pretty sure he was the one when we moved in together at the 3 year mark, but it took me another year and a half to work my way around to being ready to get engaged.

The moment I knew my Fiance was the one happened seven months after we first really noticed each other (we had been acquaintances for a little while, and then he came to my birthday party, we started talking and we made our relationship official a little over a month later). I unexpectedly lost my job, and called my then-boyfriend, absolutely devastated, and he agreed to meet me for dinner. The second I saw him and he took me in his arms, I knew everything was going to be all right. He made one of the worst days of my life better, just by his presence…that’s when I knew I was in this relationship for the long run.

Madeline789:  he knew the moment he met me. the first night we met and he told me he was going to marry me i thought he was full of it. i was 19. i knew the first christmas with his family. maybe 4 or 5 months into our relationship. he brought me an already made cup of coffee. just the way i like it and something clicked like “i could spend the rest of my life with you”.

Madeline789:  While we say it was love at first site I think the moment I knew for sure was the first time I saw him hold our daughter. It took him 3 more years to lock me into a committed relationship, I was skeered.

Hmmm, maybe 8 months in the thought crossed my mind, but I didn’t *know* until 5 years in. Crazy long compared to most of you bees, but I was 17 when we started dating, and children really have no business thinking about marriage or “the one” at that point in time.

Madeline789:  I thinka bout 6 months is when i absolutely KNEW.

of course I had thought about it! But i remember distinctly the moment after we dropped my mom off at the airport (she lives in australia) and perhaps it was because i had been able to see him much while my mom was in town (we did a cruise and she stayed with me in my old studio apt) and he reached over and grabbed my hand, as he always does when he was driving, but i thought in that moment – this is definitely the man i want to marry. And i felt all giddy! lol

I knew my fiancé was special from the moment I met him. I knew was in it for the long haul, when he offered to pick up chocolate, pain killers and feminine hygeine products for me late one evening (a few months into our relationship) when I was in too much pain to move. I think I knew he was the one when he was really upset, and I realised that I was willing to move heaven and earth to help him feel better.

Madeline789: My Fiance and I went on a date 5 years ago, I ended up getting back together with my ex and told him not to ever contact me again. I don’t remember feeling much of anything at the time as I was going through a breakup and obviously getting back with my ex was the choice I wanted.

Flash forward to 2013. 8 months after I exited aformentioned relationship, I reached out to now Fiance. We made plans to hang out but I ended up getting sick so I just went over to see him shortly. We ordered take out and watched a movie. I went home that night and I was instantly like oh my god. I really like this guy. I felt so comfortable with him and was able to just be myself from the beginning. We went on an official date 3 days later, which I now refer to our our “second first date” and the rest is history. I love him to death and it is true what they say, when you know, you know. You can only hope they feel the same way.

I knew when I met him that he was going to be special to me, I knew at four months that I was in love with him and six months that I wanted to marry him. He got a job offer across the border and I panicked because I knew this was the love of my life. He didn’t end up getting the job in the end, but it definitely  made me realize how I felt. It took three years to actually get engaged but I didn’t worry too much because I knew we’d end up together 🙂

The day we met I had an inkling, but it wasn’t until our first week dating 6 months later that I knew. It only took 7 days with him romantically, though. My mom knew too; I hadn’t been speaking to her for those entire six months, but one week into dating this kid and she called and said she’d been unable to sleep because she saw our picture on facebook and just had a feeling.
