I asked my close friend recently if there was a certain moment she knew her Fiance was ‘the one’ and she didn’t have an answer. So now I want to hear your stories, when did you know your SO was perfect for you? Did you at all?
We spend a lot of time apart becuase of the military so we keep seperate notebooks and write down all the times we are thinking about each other. We were going over our books together when were were finally in person and noticed that not only had we both made lists of everything we wanted to accomplish in life, they were strangely errily similar and we hadn’t talked about them at all. Thats when I knew I would probably never find a better match.
forgot to add… i looked for this topics and it is on the boards but the only one I could find was 3 years ago. thought there might be new bees who want to share thier story now 🙂

We both admitted that when we were on our first date we had a strong feeling that this was it. I wouldn’t say “love at first sight’ but definately had ‘the feeling’ that everyone talks about.

It was after our 3rd date. We fell asleep staying up talking late (no hanky panky or anything like that) and I woke up with his arms around me. I usually hated being touched when I slept, but with him it was totally different. I knew then he was different and it actually scared the crap out of me.

I can’t pinpoint a moment that I knew, but I just got a very strong feeling after a few months. Like, I had never felt happier or more at peace and I just knew this was it. Not a very helpful or interesting story, I suppose, but I had certainly never had “that feeling” before (and I was with my ex for more than 5 years)!

like your friend I didn’t know in a moment. I liked him a whole lot, but liked lots of guys a whole lot. I crushed and dreamed hard doodled my name with his last name think gr. 9. It wasn’t until about 6 months in it was “serious”.

The night after our first date the next morning I called my best friend and told her “This is the guy I’m going to marry.” And I did!

There wasn’t really a moment, but there was this instant click and from the beginning we were joined at the hip. But after we’d been dating for about 4 months, we were at a friend’s wedding and dancing, and he said “You know, I think I’m going to marry you some day.” I just smiled and said “I think I’d like that.” I moved in a month later and we were engaged 4 months after that.

@KatyElle, That is adorable! My guy just recently admitted to doing a similar thing with me calling his family! I thought it was a little over the top (he has a tendancy to over react emotionally some times) but I guess love at first sight does exist 🙂

I can’t really remember “the moment” but I always think about the first time I saw him. We were in college studying musical theater and I was watching him sing in a class. I just knew there was something special about him. At the time I didn’t know it was because he was going to be my husband someday!

oh we BOTH know the exact moment. We had been friends and starting to get really close with knowing eachother, texting, emailing, phone calls, constantly. The first time we went out together alone, not at a party with a bunch of others, we went out with just us two and my best friend and her man. It was supposed to be as friend but the MOMENT we got to the location (a comedy club) and we were sitting next to eachother, all we could we talk and laugh. We kept getting sshh’ed because our friends couldn’t hear the comedian. We then went to a local bar to meet some friends and I couldn’t take my eyes off him. He held my hand under our table and this sounds so corny but I felt a shock wave through my body. The moment that happened, I was like OH LORD!! lol Because trust me I wasn’t trying to get into a relationship. But it would’ve happened anyway. After he dropped me off we were recapping our night and he told me he knew I was the one and he wanted to marry me. That was 3 years ago 🙂 That’s my heart and we still aren’t engaged but I can taste it in the air 🙂 hahaha any moment now!!!! <3

I just remember how our first date turned into a weekend together. We had such a great time on a Friday, so much so he asked me to brunch the next day and spent the whole weekend together. If any other man tried that I would think stalker or desperation, but with him we instantly clicked and I needed to get to know him more.

@globalmargaret: It was very out of character for me, so she was like “Uh, hi could you put Katy on the phone please?”
I was always very cynical about men.

It wasn’t a specific moment. I just sort of knew after a few months.
We had been friends for several years before he asked me out. We even went to Prom together. But just as friends. We started dating in college. I’d say after about 5-6 months of dating I just kind of knew that no matter what happened, we were going to work through it and be together for the rest of our lives. I don’t believe in fate or destiny and neither does he. Love takes work, and I realized that he was worth the effort. I suppose after that realization that I knew I would marry him.
He will actually tell you that he knew I was the one for him a lot sooner.

@KatyElle: Wow. Thats romantic!

There wasnt a moment really for me. We clicked and got along really well at the beginning, but it was a rough start due to external circumstances. He actually sort of backed off, but I pursued. I would say I didn’t really think about him being ‘the one’ until about a little over a year into the relationship.
