NOTE: I’m talking “the one” as in the one you will end up marrying, not specifically soul mates. Just to diffuse that argument before it starts 😉
When did you start getting those feelings? Was it love at first sight, or did it take a few years?
I was thinking about this the other day. For years before I met my SO, I self-injured. I didn’t know how to deal with loneliness, anxiety, or anything. One of the first times we were intimate, he saw the scars on my thigh and kissed them. That’s the exact moment I thought, hey; this could turn into something more. Since then, I’ve become healthier and more able to express what I’m feeling instead of internalizing dissappointments. He helped by being patient with me and understanding what I was going through. I know for a fact without his support I’d still be as unhealthy as I was.
So. When did you suspect?

I knew the second our horrible, awkward, hilarious first date was over and we BOTH couldn’t wait to see each other again
We’ve been inseparable ever since (except when the Army dictates)

I think I knew the moment I saw him… but that was solidified a couple days later when I mixed the wrong drinks together at a party and had a technicolor yawn. He quietly cleaned up after me and took me to my hotel room and stayed (without pre-text) to make sure I was going to be ok!

He says he knew it from the beginning. I like to say it was our 1st halloween together when he agreed to dress up as a smurf with me.
but i just needed an excuse to post this pic

I knew he was it when we exchanged cell phone pics of our cats on the first date.
@msgraphics: That about sells it.

I suspected from the beginning to be totally cliche, but I KNEW on our first “vacation/holiday/meeting”. Long story short, I met him in Colorado while I was still living in FL and we talked on the phone for 6 months before we actually met up for Thanksgiving together. After the trip was over..we were legit blubbering crying because we didn’t want to leave eachother, thats when I knew that I didn’t want a future without him 🙂

We both knew on our first date. We had known each other for 2 years as coworkers and we had lingering crushes on each other before we went on our first date.

Hmmm, I don’t know the exact moment. I just remember that there came a point where I just knew, shortly after we started dating

I knew after our first trip together. We had been dating a month and we were packing up the car to head home. He had kept looking at me and smiling with a look that let me know he was thinking about a future. He would grin and shake his head like he couldn’t believe it was happening. Kinda hard to explain, I guess.

I’m glad you clarified what you mean by “The One” because I don’t believe in soul mates. 🙂
There was no magical moment when it hit me, it was just a gradual thing as our feelings for each other grew stronger. It took a long time, probably around three years into the relationship that I started seriously thinking I wanted to spend my life with him and that’s around the time we started talking about moving in together.

three weeks after meeting he moved away to florida (I live in Boston). It was Halloween at the time, and I spent Thanksgiving with him in Florida. I knew the moment I booked that flight to Florida 🙂

From the beginning. Things don’t always go as planned though. We broke up, stayed best friends, then had a falling out and I refused to talk to him. However, here we are 10 years later getting married. I think we both needed to grow up and realize what we had and what was not out there.

Coming home from a halloween party late at night in the car. It was kind of an Aha! moment 🙂 I just knew.

He had me from hello…. LOL but yea, I knew I loved him from the moment he came over to talk to me. But it was a few weeks later that I knew that I wanted to marry him someday 🙂
