Honestly, I don’t think Boyfriend or Best Friend knew until we split up for 36 hours right at the end of the summer.  He had never talked future and squirmed when I did.  I got fed up with the idea that it might not be going anywhere.  He cam crawling back.  On our 2 yr anniversary about 6 weeks later, he said we’d be engaged within the yr… but I think it took him potentially losing me to figure it out!

I think he knew after… well, he asked me after 3 months if I would, but he was drunk. He’s asked many more times, but not formally, often since then.


We told each other “i love you” after two weeks of being together face-to-face. Again, military issues–we’d be “together” for about 2 months.


He still hasn’t “officially” asked, even though he’s asked many times. It’s been over a year. He has a good excuse though, now–he’s deployed.




I love these stories!

My SO knew I was the one after we  had know (not dated) each other for about 8 months. We were really good friends and he told me he loved me one afternoon. Three weeks later we decided to move to Thailand together and we’ve been together ever since!

he says he knew he wanted to marry me after our second Thanksgiving together, which was our first real Thanksgiving where we cooked and had dinner together, and 1 year 5 months into the relationship. I made turkey, stuffing, potatoes, and real gravy – apparently that’s what did it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I just asked him and he said, “Probably when you took care of me after I broke my neck.” Technically I broke his neck, but yes, that was it. About six months into our relationship.

He says it was our 3rd date when I cooked apps for him and we went to a meeting. I had gotten a new job and he brought be a bottle of nice champagne to celebrate. He says after we talked that night he “knew”.

I don’t know when he knew, but I think it was probably very soon after we started dating, maybe even before we started dating. 

I’ve been told by people at our club that he was never seen him with other women, and he never brought women to the club. I think he took me there about 5 weeks after we started dating, and probably 3 weeks after that, he paid for me to be a member.

It wasn’t until months later that he told me he would never take a woman to the club unless he thought she was the one, because the club was his place to hang out and just relax. When he told me that, I said, “but you bought me a membership,” and he all he said was, “Well, yeah,” as though it was no big deal.

The wife of one of his friends said she knew he was in love when he brought me to the club. And it seems a lot of people who have known Jim for a long time get a kick out of telling me how much Jim talks about me and how much in love he is with me.

I think it’s cute.

I knew the moment I met him and Mr. G says it was the same for him. Definitely love at first sight! Granted, it took us over 3 years to mention the “Love” word, but looking back we both knew as soon as we met that we were supposed to be together.

He says he knew I was marriage potential from the very beginning cause he prayed to God for me and I showed up immediately after.  But he fought it cause he didn’t think God would deliver so quickly at a young age. He thought he would marry at 30 so he was confused by his feelings.

All I have to say is, Jesus rocks, lol.

I’m not sure when he decided, I’ll ask him when he calls tonight though. We’ve know each other a long time, met on the school bus when I started middle school, but never dated until after we both graduated high school. I didn’t start thinking about it until about 2 years into the relationship because the first year was very casual. He’s told me, “Ever since I first saw you I had hoped for a piece and now I get to keep all of it.” Super romantic. ๐Ÿ˜‰

my SO and I started dating right after my high school graduation and we dated all through college. So during my first semester, we met up at the parking lot of my college campus and while We were in his car, he put his seat back and, he closed his eyes and told me to imagine life without him. I did and i couldnt hold the tears. he said he *knew* when he saw me crying and that i was so sincere. It also helped that i had baked him cookies =)

He says he knew on our first date. I’m not sure I believe him, but it was pretty soon after that. After going a few times we started talking about where things were headed and he said he wanted to be exclusive and basically asked me to be his girlfriend. I didn’t say anything right away. I was enjoying being single and not really looking for a relationship. He told me he thought we could be really great together – I laughed at him and accused him of feeding me a cheesy line. I asked him the other day if he would have proposed sooner had he been able to financially – he told me would have, maybe even as soon as three months together. He definitely was sure I was the one before I was sure he was. I’m so happy I agreed to be with him – best decision I ever made!

After our first date. We had talked everyday for 3 months during the summer on the phone and online after he found me on facebook randomly. After I came back to town for the fall semester we finally met and had our first date and when I asked him about it recently he said that’s when he knew he would marry me ๐Ÿ™‚
