How did you know your FH/FW was The One?

Did you have a moment of epiphany that your FH/FW was The One? Or did you realize it when someone popped the question? Did you feel it when you first met/on the first date?

For me I realized it about 2 months into dating. I went home for Christmas and it was the first time I missed an S/O for the 2 weeks I was gone. I did a LD with an ex for 4 months because of a summer job placement and there were times where I missed him, but with my FH it was a different feeling - I imagined us together for Christmases in the future when we'd have kids around the tree. I remember crying with my mom on Christmas Eve and telling her even though I just started dating this guy, I felt like he was The One. I told her I felt like I was supposed to meet him and end up with him.

Bonus: For anyone who popped the question, how'd did you know it was time to ask your S/O to spend the rest of their life with you? Did you have a plan for the proposal or did you wing it?

    You know, I can't pinpoint when I knew he was "the one" but I knew by a year in for sure Smiley smile

    I love that saying! I travel a bit with work and always talk to my FH at the end of the day and we talk about each other's day, and are both genuinely interested in what the other has to say.

    I knew it was worth getting into a relationship when while on vacation without him, I would come call him from my hotel at the end of a day of exploring and he was genuinely interested in what I'd discovered and gotten into.

    It took about 9 months for me to genuinely develop feelings for him but when I did I knew my feelings were legit, and appreciated process. It reminds me of that saying that says "I didn't fall in love, I rose in it." Totally what happened with him.

    That was one of the things that attracted me to my FH, he was genuinely interested in what I was talking about. We also instantly connected when we met and didn't try to impress one another with fake versions of ourselves. Maybe we knew each other in a past life too!

    They do say in sickness and in health for a reason! I remember the first time I had the cold in our relationship, I spread it to him because he didn't care if he got sick too, he still wanted to kiss me.

    That's awesome! Is it hard to believe you've been married for a month already? I definitely feel like I don't need my FH but he makes existing that much better!

    I grew up in London and he in Leamington/Kingsville area (1/2 hour from Windsor) so we were only 2 hours apart growing up. We ended up meeting in Thunder Bay of all places lol

    I honestly knew in the middle of our first date. I'd had this crush on him for months, but then in person he was actually so much more interesting than I'd hoped. He made me laugh nonstop, had these amazing stories to tell about his life, listened to me when I spoke, and was genuinely interested in what I said in return. There was something extra though, too - it was like we both felt instantly comfortable around each other. We discussed it later and he agreed, there was never a shyness or a need to pretend to be something we weren't. I joke about it but I kind of feel like we must have known each other in a past life.

    I called it the night of our first date. I remember talking to my mom that night of our first date and I told her I was going to marry him. She thought I was crazy saying that but when you know, you know. About 2 months into dating he had a kidney stone and I came and cared for him in the hospital and after surgery. Being with him through that difficult time and seeing him so vuberable made me realize who he really was and that was someone I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. Fast forward to today and we are so excited for the wedding!

    I knew I could see myself marrying him one day about 3 or 4 months in. I just felt so complete with him, not so much that I needed him, but that it felt right. Now 6 months, 3 months in, and 1 month of marriage, I know we're on track for an amazing life.

    I knew when we met. When I saw him in the mall (where we both worked ) I just had a feeling about him. Then when we eventually started hanging out we figured out that we could have met multiple times throughout our lives. He lived in canmore when I lived in calgary and he also used to live down the street from my dad's house. But we kept missing each other. So when we did finally meet it kind of felt like it was destined to be.

    We had only gone on two dates so far and I was going on vacation to Florida for a week. We went to my favourite place in the world, Disney World and I kept texting him and updating him on my adventures. I kept imagining what it might be like to be there with him, especially during the fireworks.

    On on the drive home he proposed we play a game called “Caitlyn guesses all the NFL teams in each state she drives through” I did very bad. But we kept texting until he went to bed around 1am.

    My brother has commented that he wanted to throw my noisy phone out the window from all the texting and my dad still laughs about me checking the gps frequently so I could send updates on my location .

    My one specific defining moment was less then a couple months into dating, we were in his kitchen mixing up some cocktails with flavored balsamic vinegar and soda water, and ended up in a dance party for two. Just rocking out to Right Round by Flo Rida (not even romantic - I think we were having a discussion on 80s music and how "current" song were incorporating pieces of it) I just felt in that moment that I could do that with him for the rest of my life.

    After that it was just the feeling of not wanting to be apart, working through rough patches, getting along with everyone in our lives, and being an actual partnership once we moved in together.

    This sounds like how my FH knew I was the one lol! He said he felt like he could talk to me about anything very early on in the relationship, plus his cats adored me from the get-go, and they are usually very picky about who they get close too!

    Lol the first time I cried about a boy because I was so into him was about my FH! All the other times was because an ex was being dumb!

    That totally describes how I felt with my FH! When distance became a factor in other relationships, I didn't miss them as much, but was devastated away from my FH!

    I love when meeting the parents is easy-breezy! My parents never really liked any exes, but they loved my FH from the get-go, which was good! I also got along with his family really well the first time meeting them

    Umm, I think it was a couple of years after living together. We had gone through a couple of rough patches (he lost his job, got a new one...then I lost my job). We started talking about buying a house one day, growing old together...and then started talking about marriage. I think, that's when I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him.

    I knew after the first few dates...I have never got along with someone so well before...it was literally a perfect fit in all of the right ways. I could easily picture a future with him...kids, house, etc. What really solidified it was a month after we started dating I went to visit my friend in Calgary for 2 weeks...I missed him so so much...then a week after I got back, HE went to Calgary for two weeks to be in his brothers wedding. The other thing that solidified it was that my dog absolutely loved him right from the start...shes got a pretty good judge of character Smiley tongue

    I think it was gradual for me? There were small moments that lead to me being certain but I don't think there was ONE DEFINING moment. Well actually... i remember I was driving somewhere once and I looked down at my hand and was like "imagine an engagement ring there" and started crying! Hahahah!!! Okay yeah that might have been the moment!

    Oh man! I don't even know where to start lol

    5 months into our relationship I went to Australia for a month to visit my sister, and it killed me when I wasn't able to talk to him for long everyday because of the time difference.

    When I came back, my Uncle had a surprise 50th birthday, and we were getting ready to head out to the restaurant. He came out of the shower and put a box on the bed and walked away. At first I was like what in the world is this, and then I opened it and it was a beautiful promise ring. It was tough being away from him for a month, especially on the other side of the world. But we made it through and it made us stronger so early on in our relationship!

    Past relationships when I went away without them I really didn't miss them too much, or wish I could talk to them. So I knew this was different!

    I think I realized it after we went on our first road trip to Edmonton. I could just see us doing this again but one day with our kids and make it a family thing Smiley smile It was like when I was a kid going with my family and we could do the same thing!

    Bonus: I knew it was time because we had been talking about marriage on that trip to Edmonton (in October 2017 - 8 months into the relationship) and told him then and there at a hockey game that I was going to pop the question. Just sit back and wait. I FOR SURE caught him off guard because he thought I would do it on our 1 year anniversary while we were in Prague, but instead I asked him on Dec. 30th. No reason for that date other than to not be cliche and ask him on New Years Eve or Christmas Smiley laugh I planned on going to supper and the light show followed by a movie but asked him at the light show (in the tunnel of love).

    For me, his family sealed the deal and solidified this was the person I wanted to be with.

    I met his parents and brother about a month into dating and his parents were really unsure of our relationship because he had ended one just a month and a half prior (she cheated on him).

    the conversation flowed so easily, I got along with his brother as if he were my own and I immediately felt accepted. They were ok with our relationship right after meeting me and we are still very, very close.

    So I knew about a month in that this was going to be my family!
