@kateisstoned:  Awwwww I love your story πŸ™‚  Fellow first dater here.  Which is even more crazy because it was literally my first date ever!  We talked and talked and talked (four hours at a chocolate indulgence shop).  I fell for him hard!  It was almost freaky how much in common we had.  When he mentioned he was good at massages early on I thought “Mmm that sounds nice!  But not on first date!”… three hours later he gave me the sweetest back massage ever πŸ˜›  By the time we realised we had to say goodbye I was practically in tears I was so overwhelmed.  First kiss on the train platform, and we’ve been inseparable ever since.  Somehow I just knew that we were going to get engaged and married, from that first night.  I didn’t know how long it would take, but I knew it was going to happen.  We got engaged ten days shy of our first anniversary!  For me it’s the perfect fairytale after years of loneliness.

@kateisstoned:  That is SO sweet.

I knew he was “the one” when he surprised me by taking me to Colorado to meet his family. Most people would probably have freaked, but it felt so right, and seeing how sweet he is to his mom made me melt.

He also quit his traveling job to find a job that would offer him a home office in OKC, so we wouldn’t have to move every year. That’s love.

I think for me it was when I had a really horrible day and we were spending the weekend together (we lived 12/13 hours apart, so I was staying at his house).  I had had a night terror in the middle of the night (which, if you know what those are, can be extremely freaky) and a panic attack later the next day.  He completely rolled with it.  I knew he was the one when he was the first person to see past that and realize that wasn’t me, it was just an illness.  

Luckly, I’ve gotten better over the years we’ve been together, and it’s not because of medication.  I fully believe it’s because I’m with someone who has faith that I’m going to be okay.  I asked him once why he didn’t leave me when I got really sick (depression/anxiety to the point to where I couldn’t get out of bed for weeks on end).  He told me he knew I’d make it.  He’s done more for me than any person I’ve ever known.  No one has ever been in my corner.  

Gah, now I’m all misty-eyed.

I met Mr. 99 at his neice’s birthday party, it was a backyard barbecue, and he was standing near a cooler, looking big, and tall and blonde….then he took off his sunglasses.  I knew the minute I saw those baby blue eyes of his, he was mine all mine.  I was driving home with my sister and said, “Gonna marry that man, just watch. “. 9 months later, I did.

@Nona99:  Love this!  I adore the “love at first sight” kind of stories.

I knew he was the one when it took my dog three hours to calm down the first time he came to my apartment. She absolutely loved him and had never reacted to anyone that way before. She’s a much better judge of character than I am!!!  LOL!

@kateisstoned:  *hugs*  I don’t meet many adults with night terrors.  I hope you’re dealing well now.  You’re lucky to have found someone to roll with it, too.  I think it’s easy for people to cope with long term illness, like diabetes or something, but when it comes to mental illness, it really takes a special kind of guy to handle that.  We’re lucky girls πŸ™‚

I knew I was going to marry him when I heard his name. Sounds strange but it’s true. I left my live-in boyfriend (who I was unhappy with anyway) before I even met him. I just knew it would work out πŸ™‚

@stuckinwonderland:  I love that.  I too have had some pretty bad health issues, and FH is my rock.  Even when I’m so exhausted I can’t do anything he never complains, he cooks dinner most of the time, he can read me like a book and insists on clearing our weekends sometimes when he sees I’m struggling.  When he told his parents (his mum’s a nurse) about my fibro she made the comment that he better be prepared for how tough it would be, especially when we have kids, and he told them that he loved me so much he’d put up with anything and everything.  Having a chronic illness sucks, but having someone love you regardless is really beyond words. 

The night we bought my engagement ring I ended up in the ER with stomach pains.  He stood by my through two weeks of hell, squeezing my hand through the pain, dealing with all the waiting, stayed home from work to take care of me, was there when I came out of surgery (they did keyhole surgery when all other means of figuring out what was going on failed… turns out I had a massive infection).  The whole time he was rubbing my ring finger, it was the best medicine ever!  Mum knew we were close to getting engaged, but it was nice to have a little secret to hold on to through all the drama.

i knew he was the one when we were on our road trip and his commission check hadn’t come into his account yet and so we were on our last 4 or 5 dollars and we slept in the backseat of our car and made peanut butter sandwiches on the dashboard in an empty hotel parking lot. we laughed through it all and the next morning, he told me he stayed awake all night to make sure nothing happened to me while i slept (due to us sleeping in my car…in an empty hotel parking lot). 

 

what could have been a really shitty situation ended up being really fun and we made each other laugh. i don’t know. it sounds weird but i knew he was someone i could be with for a long time.
