I knew he was the one when we were out to dinner on our first date.  We talked for hours like we were old friends and I could eat a platter of mexican food in front of him without feeling judged ๐Ÿ˜‰


p.s. I’m from Syracuse, too!

I knew he was the one about 2 weeks into our relationship. I burned the corner of my lip very badly and it was absolutely disgusting looking. We we’re supposed to hang out that day, but I really didn’t want him to see me when I felt so ugly. When I told him I didn’t want him to see me that way, he said “I don’t care if you pooped your pants, I still want to see you!”. So he came over and made me feel beautiful. It sounds silly, but I had already been thinking he was the one, but that just solidified it for me.

Hello Upstate NY’ers (Binghamton here!). I knew my SO was the one when he told me to never change a thing about myself. I was previously married and my ex tried to change everything about me, that’s why he’s my ex. I now have a wonderful man whom I love so much and treats me like a princess!

I’m not sure exactly when I fully knew. We’ve been together 5 years and probably at the 4 year mark or so, I was totally sure.

However, I was about 90-95% sure after about 6 months or so (there was an ex I was about that sure of before too, and I was wrong about that one, so that was not enough).

One time we had the stereo on in my room. He starts dancing kind of like a cowboy and he takes off his shirt and is swinging around the shirt above  his head and dancing crazy. I was dying from laughter. Funny thing is, I think he came to the same conclusion about me at that very moment too…just the way he was smiling at me…Smile

The same week he first kissed me, I was walking in to university and BANG I realised that this was the man I was going to marry. It happened in the middle of a busy Toronto street, so it was quite a shocker! ๐Ÿ™‚ Now, almost 5 years later we’re engaged since April – having 7 months left to our wedding!

I just always knew, I was so in love with him from the start that by the time I was old enough to really really be serious about marriage, I was so attached that I couldn’t see myself with anyone else.

  • Wedding: December 2012

I started dating my husband in March of 2012. In May, I flew out to visit him in Oklahoma (He was from the town next to where I lived. He was stationed at Tinker AFB in Oklahoma City in the Navy.) and I stayed with him for three weeks.

When I walked out of security, he sprinted across the terminal, picked me up, swung me around and kissed me so deeply that I had never experienced anything so amazing before in my life. That’s when I knew he was the one.

A woman behind me uttered, “Wow, somebody is loved.”

I didn’t feel fireworks, I didn’t feel butterflies, I felt explosions in my gut. When I went home, it was the most awful pain I had ever been subjected to. My heart bled and I cried the entire time we were apart.

I moved in with him in June. We had been together three months. He proposed in October, we were married in December. I have zero doubts that he is the one.

Christmas 2010.  We’d been together 2 months and he asked me to come to Christmas dinner at his brother’s house (first time meeting them). Before he ever asked me, he made sure with his brother that my mom could come too. It’s been just me and my mom since I was 3 and the one non-negotiable is that I won’t leave her alone on Christmas. I’d never told hm that, he just knew and made sure she was included before even bringing it up to me ๐Ÿ™‚

A few weeks after we started hanging out. I though to mysef “Wow, we can laugh, cry, be silly, and completely our selves around one another. We have so much in common, yet so many differences, and never ending amounts of fun together. This is what it feels like to meet the man of your dreams. He’s the one.” When we would looked into each other’s eyes, i could feel him telling me he loved me, and all i could think was i love him too (a few weeks of spending every moment together). Later I told him how I felt in those moments and he laughed and told me we even have telepathinc abilities together lol We’re best friends praprared to deal with whatever we may run into. We’ve discussed times in our future when we may fall out of love with each other, or be intrigued by the excitement of something new, instead of the safe love that we have for each other, but that there will never be a time when either of us will doubt that were soulmates. We’re so excited to be married and spend the rest of our days building a family and our lives together.

  • Wedding: June 2013

Last summer (a few months after our engagement), we were celebrating FI’s father’s birthday. It was a HOT summer day at the camp. We started drinking early and before I knew it I was wasted. Some of my drinks got mixed for me and I could have been a lot more careful. Long story short, I had successfully humiliated myself. I know I had drank too much… But I wasn’t completely aware of how bad things got, until Fiance finally told me a few days later. Yeah, I was oblivious until he told me. Bees, it was bad, really really bad. People were annoyed by me, avoiding me, etc because I was so drunk. I chased two young girls walking my dog around the camp… I layed on the ground declaring my drunken self (there’s some more, but I think i’ve said enough), it was the most humiliating thing I had ever done. Once Fiance told me about all of this, I was mortified and finally knew the true meaning of humiliation… I couldn’t stop crying… I couldn’t imagine facing his family ever again!

He wasn’t too happy with me… He had spent the majority of that day watching me and was very patient with me, and to top it all off, at the end of the night I dragged him out of bed to have a fight! Like I said, most dumbest, humiliating day of my life. His family even said how impressed they were with him, for keeping his cool with my drunk self aLL day.

I was so upset to hear this. I honestly thought that I hadn’t been THAT bad. But once Fiance laid it all out, I had a rude reality check.

He was upset, I was upset. I could not stop crying…

This is when he surprised me. Once he realized how devastated I was, he put his arms around me and conforted me like he had never done before, in all the 3 years of us being together, he finally showed me that he could be there for me no matter what (I knew he would, but seeing and believing are two diff. things). Long story short, that’s when I knew. He was able to calm me down, comfort me and make me realize that everything will be ok, that his family knows me and knows I am not really that kind of person.


He held me tight, and swept his hand over the back of my head and told me everything I needed to hear.

After the first time we met in person (we had been gaming together online for a few months) I told my friends that if I was ever going to get married, he would be the only person.  I never really planned on getting married, so this was a pretty big statement for me.
