For me it was just a feeling that I had found home in a person. He is everything I never knew I wanted or needed in a partner but now it makes perfectsense. He brings out the best in me and vice versa. I come from a background of divorced parents who have been married a bunch of times. Of course you’ll always be a little fearful or apprehensive since it’s such a big committment. But in the end, it’s a leap of faith and for me it’s comforting knowing that he’ll be right there with me when we take the plunge 😀 I’ve been real cheesy on the bee lately 😉

I think you can know what feels right and feel someone is the right one for you and take the leap of faith. You cannot predict the future though and can only have an indication of what the future may hold based on the present. I have witnessed so many divorces where the couples 10 years earlier were the ones shouting from the rooftops that when you know you know. truth is you don’t 100% know. you can pick wisely though and feel very certain and confident in your choice based off of how feel in the present.

I knew because I realized I couldn’t be truly happy without him. He is my best friend.

I’ve never not doubted anything in my life, and I’d be worried about myself if I started now. For me, it isn’t about “knowing”. It’s about trusting. 🙂

  • Wedding: December 2015

September 2014 met each other.  October started dating.  November had the wedding date.  December got engaged.  January moved in.  December 2015 wedding.  I had never dated before (I’m 36).<br /><br />My skin tingles when he touches me (hair, arm, shoulder, etc., holding hands).  When I leave work to go home I smile when I think of going home to him.  I just… know.  After passing our six month mark somewhere along the way I realized I have never been in love with anyone before him.  I never found anyone else I wanted to date, get engaged to, share life together, etc.  I can’t put into words why I love him, just that I do.

Well for me, I had dated many guys I had thought were the one because we had that inexplicable spark – but then not much else. I always got hurt or let down. They were just bad boys playing with my heart and the relationships were empty. I wanted a marriage, a family, a future ……Finally I gave a solid nice no games kind of guy a chance and found everything I had always wanted but had been looking for it in all the wrong places. Our relationship is literally my dream come true and I thanked him for that in my wedding vows (getting all misty now…). I don’t have a crazy spark with my husband, I’ve had more with other guys to be honest, but no one has ever fulfilled me like he does. Ever. Not even close. I feel 100% myself and we are always moving forward and building our life together. He’s my best friend and we love spending time together, we have the same corny sense of humour, we laugh our guts out, we can finish eachother’s thoughts, we like the same things, we’re just so purely compatible. And the way that I really know, is because bad days (everybody has them, we’re all only human) don’t set us back. We fix it and get back on track together.
