It was about a month and a half in that I knew for sure that I loved him. For a few weeks before that, I had been wondering about whether or not I loved him, but I had never been in love before so I felt like I couldn’t be sure.

A month or two into us dating, though, he was rambling on for more than half an hour about some video game he had played, describing in detail the characters and the story and the world in the game. I had to leave because I was supposed to return my friend’s car to her so she could go to work. I couldn’t stop looking at him and smiling while he was talking, though. And then suddenly I just knew. I thought to myself, “I love him.” And I wasn’t unsure anymore.

Since then, I just keep loving him more and more over time. When I was unsure how I felt, I thought that you couldn’t love someone so soon. But I’ve come to realize that love grows over time, and just because your love isn’t as strong as deep at the beginning, it doesn’t make it any less real.

I was 17 when I met my fiance, and I’m pretty sure the L word presented itself around the 2 week mark haha. Ahhhhh, young love. There wasn’t really a defining moment, it just felt right. 

6 years later, here we are!

I knew I was absolutely in love when my boyfriend (now fiance) and I were at a friends cabin for a summer party. We had been dating for about two months. There were several children there and my Fiance was teaching them all how to jump off a rock into the creek. He had our friend’s nephew (who was too young to know how to swim well on his own) on his back when they were in the water. I was in awe of how fun and caring he was with the kids. That was it for me. I was in deep! Swoon!

My SO told me he loved me a few weeks or so into us officially dating, although we had been spending a LOT of time together before we officially began dating. He said he truly experienced love at first sight when he met me, and he didn’t believe love at first sight was a thing until we met.

I didn’t say “I love you” back to him until a couple of months later. I really wanted to be sure I meant it before I said it. We were sitting on my bed and we had been talking and enjoying conversation and I just blurted it out in the middle of the conversation. I was so happy about being able to say it back to him and I felt so strongly about it that I had a few happy tears. It was a very special moment. I’ve been absolutely smitten ever since.

I JUST told my SO that I love him this weekend! We’ve known eachother for a while, but are both somewhat recently out of long term relationships and didnt want to rush it. We have been “casually dating” for a few months, but slowly stopped seeing anyone else because we really just wanted to be with each other. Last month Il went on an overseas trip for 2 weeks and ended up calling him a couple times just because I missed him so much. We live a couple hours apart and have easily gone a week or 2 without seeing each other. We have this amazing chemistry that still blows me away, and any time I think about anyone I’ve ever dated, he’s head & shoulders above them (including my lame ex-husband!) I knew I was in love when I had this constant stream of “i love you, I love you, I love you” running through my head when I was with him. I had to try really hard to not say it, but I wanted to be 100% sure first. 

I finally told him after a few drinks, and got pretty emotional. He thought it was cute that I got so worked up because I’m usually a very composed person. He said he knew I loved him weeks ago and that I was scared to say it. He’d told me before we actually started dating that he thought he was in love with me (long story lol) and was just waiting for me to catch up. So we are “offically” a couple as of this weekend hahaha.

I wish someone had told me that this is what loving someone worthy is like… I wasted so much time on losers! But at least I have him now and we have so much exciting stuff to look forward to!
