Maybe not instant love, but how many bees out there met their significant others and had a gut feeling it’d really go somewhere?
My husband literally showed up on my doorstep one day, as he’d purposely missed his flight to see my bff and meet me (we’d been discussing via AOL IM my entry to a big summer share that he organized, so we hadn’t spoken or met yet). This was my last semester in college. I opened the door and whammy. Normally pretty low maintenance and confident, I couldn’t figure out what to wear, what to do, where to go! haha. We had a picnic in the living room and went for a walk before meeting up with our mutual friends that didn’t get out of work until late. This wasn’t supposed to be a date, but kind of seemed that way! After another visit (woops, missed his flight again, how does this keep happening?) we both kind of knew we liked each other. By the time the summer share was upon us, we were inseparable!
Neither of us was looking to settle down young, but when you know, you know.

About the same over here. Fiance showed up at a party my roommate was throwing. It may sound cliche but after he left I had this feeling, like something was happening that was very important. Three months later, engaged!

Yes.. me. I tell him and he doesnt believe me .. My cousins girlfriend (at the time 5 years ago) was good friends with my husband. I had never met him or even seen what he looked like. I would always hear about him and one day we were passing by where he worked and she said “oh I wonder if R is working, we should stop by” and in my head all I could think was YES STOP but I didnt know why & we didnt end up stopping. Well a couple months passed and I left her a comment on myspace of all places and he left one right after on her page as well asking about me THATS how I snooped his page and was like wow I have got to meet him. I always knew SOMETHING was meant to happen!

i don’t know if it was love at first sight… but i saw him at temple and thought “he seems like the kind of guy i want to marry.” and then a month later, after we had our first date (after he friended me on facebook and we messaged each other daily), i called all my friends and said that i loved him.

Not technically at first site, since I had known hi about 8 years before we got together. But I hadn’t seen him in over a year, and we ran into each other at a party. Happened like this – I had been feeling better about myself than I had since my ex and I broke up 3 months prior, so I looked really hot for the club. I was sposed to go to said party but went to the club instead, my friend who I went with ended up getting sick about a half hour after we got there, so we had to leave and I decided to go to the party since I was all dressed up. I walked in, said hi to the people I knew and then wlked out on the balcony to talk to someone and hubs was there. We had never really got along before, but that night was…different. We ended up not dating for a while, but spent so much time together we ended up together. Totally crazy after the history of not liking each other

funny cause i had gone to the same highschool as my Fiance for like, 3 years and thought of him as a nerd. granted he was a cute nerd, but no itentions.
then he graduated, and awhile later i saw him at an event and just HAD to talk to him. he was more interested in friendship at first, and it took him about 6 months to ask me out, but i liked him pretty much instantly.

Yup, I told my sister after our 1st date, that he was the man I was going to marry. She thought that I had completely lost my mind. But the funny thing is, I had dreams about him since I was in my teens, but I had no idea who he was until our first date. People don’t believe me…………but it doesn’t matter to me. I am marrying my soulmate in 11 days!!!!

I seriously disliked my Fiance upon first sight. I was co-hosting a party, my co-host had told me she had the PERfECT guy for me oh he was SOOOOO perfect. he showed up unshowered, unshaved, wearing sweat pants and I was like “what the Big Old F Word”. anyway, turns out my friend had told him to style himself up to meet me and he was feeling obstinate so he went as un-styled as he could. What a turdbutt.

NO! I couldn’t stand him. The first time we hung out
he said: “I have this weird feeling you’re going to be a big part of my life”
to which I obviously replied: “Ew, you’re so creepy. Bye”.
It took him two years to convince me to go out with him again.

your stories are great ladies! some surprising twists here too! Esp. with the ladies that didn’t get along at first 🙂
With my story, I didn’t mention that I’d just befriended my BFF maybe a month prior – it was love at first sight there too, i guess! So in one semester i met my bff and my future husband! yowza.

My Fiance and I met thru match.com. We did a couple emails, a phone call and within a week we were set to go on our first date. When we met we were both giddy and excited. But it wasn’t until we kissed and I thought… “this is what it is like to kiss my husband” and 2 years later we’re about to tie the knot!

Yes, it was definitely “love” at first sight for my Fiance and I. We still talk about it all the time. We were always crossing paths before we even met, and we would always stare at each other. I felt connected to him before even talking to him (if that makes sense), and I knew that we would eventually meet. Two years later, we finally did meet and it was amazing. There was instant chemistry right away, and I felt like I had already known him for years.
We had really bad timing though, because I was moving to another state a week later after I met him. We stayed in contact, and he ended up driving 12 hours to see me after just meeting me… we barely knew each other! I ended up moving back and the rest is history. Almost 5 years later and I couldn’t be happier. 🙂

@virginia- that is awesome!!
I’d say yes and no to this. We met on match.com so we talked online first…. and before we ever met I told my bff “I’m either going to marry this guy or he’s going to break my heart.” But then we met and even though it went well I was definitely unsure. I really liked him but I was fresh out of a super long relationship and not really planning on meeting anyone for anything SERIOUS. It actually took me a long time to be sure, but I still think its cute that I liked him so much right from the start.
