Let’s talk about love… When did you first realize you were in love with your SO/Fiance?
Me first!! A few months into our relationship I got a call from him. Too much re-living college life and one tackle in a game of football with his old college buddies later he was on his way to the hospital with a broken arm. He called me in pain and told me he wished I were with him. A few days later he was scheduled for his surgery and asked if I could be there for him. Right before it he gave me his gold Italian chili pepper necklace to wear and keep safe. I called out of work to spend the day in the hospital with him. After his very long surgery I sat by his bed, him still asleep, clutching the chili pepper. I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. I whispered to him that I thought I might be falling in love with him. We didn’t say it out loud to each other until a few months later, but we both look back at that time as a major moment!
Let’s here your stories!!

I think it was a month or two in. He would always do these really (simple) and sweet gestures, like bring me my favorite iced coffee and bagels, or just other little things that were just really, really sweet. I would always jokingly be like “I love you!”, but then between that stuff, and just hanging out with him everyday, I realized that I did love him!
Haha its certainly not a crazy story or anything!
Side note: I met Fiance like 2 months before I entered my freshman year of college. When I started college I would tell my one new friend “Oh I love him. We have been dating for 2 months, but I love him” and she would roll her eyes (was with her Boyfriend or Best Friend for 2 years at that point). Well, 4 years later and I still love him!

I fell in love with my guy very quickly…on the second date in fact! So after about 2 weeks if you want to put it in “time” terms. But I’d known him for a while before that- we worked in the same place.
On our second date, he took me to a sports game, knowing that I would love it. It took us 2 hours to get there by car and we were able to chat the whole way without any awkwardness. Then afterwards we sat in a hotel bar drinking tea and chatting for about 6 hours until I had to go to my hotel (I was staying in that city that night) and he had to go home.
When the taxi came for me, despite having spent an entire day with him, I realised that the minute he wasn’t there, I missed him! I knew then that I was falling for him, even though it scared the life out of me (bad previous relationship, long story!). He told me he loved me a few weeks later and I was a mixture of complete joy and fear. It took me a few hours but I did eventually tell him later that night that I loved him too.

About a month in. I had just had surgery about a week before we started dating and he would always call or text to make sure I was ok and we would count down how many days until I get my stitches out together 🙂

Oh! I love reading about these. I believe it was the day we met in person. He found me on myspace. We talked constantly over the phone and online for a month before we decided to met each other in person

By our second date I was completely smitten. We met through mutual friends & he asked me out 3 times before I said yes. I had just gotten out of a relationship & didn’t want another, but I finally caved. The next 6 years flew by and here we are 🙂

I knew I would love him on Day 2, and by Day 3, I was in deep.

On about our 4th Date. I went to his place and he cooked me (hes not a very good cook) pie, spaghetti hoops and Alpha Bites (potato waffles in the shape of letters) and he spelled out out my name with them on the plate. He said you get more than me because you have a longer name. i thought it was really sweet and was like ahhh i love yoouuu.

i first thought i was in love with him about 2 months in he set up a picnic in the park to watch november fireworks, i was 18 and it was the sweetest date i had every gone on. but a four months after that i got a call from his dad saying he had been in a car accident on the motorway and had to be cut from the car. in the moments after that phonecall i imagined the worst and just knew i couldnt cope without him. luckily he was ok took a few months of recovery and he has a few problems still with his leg now but the moment when i thought i was going to lose him i realised how much i loved him.
throughout our relationship there have been times when i’ve been completely overcome with how much i love him, when i gave birth to our daughter and then six weeks later when she contracted a rare form of meningitis he was my rock and i know that i wouldnt want to be with anyone else. the trials you go through in life seem to strenghten your love for each other.
wow that was soppy for me but what can i say i love my man 😀

I was smitten by him from the first date actually, but refused to consider it love and did not even tell him that I loved him until about a year later.
It was during that year that I knew it was love during my little nieces birthday party. He was pushing her on the swing and playing with her. She was enjoying him alot and had a big grin on her face. I felt my heart flutter and stomach twist while watching them.
I jumped him later that day…. but did not say I love you just then….

Honestly I started falling on the first date but really i’d say 3 days after meeting him (3rd date) He picked me up from work (cus my car was totalled the day before on our 2nd date. lol) And he took me up to eagle rock state park which overlooks NYC and he played “Amazed” by Lonestar for me. Kissing me and whispering the words to the song to me… It was incrediblely sweet! Then we are walking around and he hugs me and he asks me… “Would you think I was crazy if i told you I was falling in love with you?” My reply was “No, I’d tell you it’s going to be really easy to fall in love with you”. We officially said it the next day but the truth is – thats when I knew and he later admitted he did too but it was only 3 days so he was “testing the waters” to make sure i wouldn’t freak out. lol
It’ll be 4 years August 28th 🙂

I first realized I loved him 5-6 months after we started dating, which was about a year from the time we met (we were friends first). We were just laying in bed with my head on his chest and in that “nook” that’s made when laying next to someone. I was just thinking about how it was crazy that we fit together so perfectly, like two puzzle pieces. I started thinking about how it was getting late, he should get ready for class, and I should be leaving, but I really didn’t want to. I didn’t want to do anything else. The thought that I could lay right there forever and never do anything else and be perfectly content crossed my mind, and at that point I just knew. It was a little like an epiphany about something that you should have known for a long time (and subconsciously did) but was right past conscious thought.
We’re not very sappy people, but this memory is really vivid for me even though it was almost 5 years ago now.

I think we said it 11 days after meeting. We met in person, saw each other 3 times in a week. Then Fiance left for Germany for 3 weeks, and it was while he was gone that I realized it!
