  1. My wife and I were long distance from the get go. Every other weekend, one of us would make the drive to respective hometowns.

    On one of her visits during Labor Day weekend (a year and five months after meeting), she was getting ready to leave when a rain storm came through. I could tell she didn’t want to go, and I told her she didn’t have to. However, we knew it had to be done.

    We shared a kiss, a really long hug, and she was on her way. I knew it would be about three hours before she got home, so I figured I’d take a shower while unwinding.

    Well, I must have fallen asleep as I was woken up by a frantic knock on the door. I opened the door, and there she was. Soaking wet, crying her eyes out. She made it about an hour down the road before turning around. She confessed that she can’t do the distance anymore, and she wants to come home to me everyday.

    The way she looked at me, and the way I felt when we made eye contact, I knew that this girl was not going anywhere anytime soon.

    The next day we started planning our move in date, and it took about 2 weeks for everything to come together.

  2. Said this before on other threads like this, but:

    When we got back from a week long vacation and I was genuinely sad I’d be alone in my apartment that night. I’m an introvert, and I have distinct memories of coming back from a school trip of a week actively hating my friends because I needed time away from them and hadn’t got it. I’ve rarely spent a week straight in anyone’s company and not been fed up with them. But I wanted her to be there with me that night and was unhappy that that wasn’t going to be the case.

    Was pretty telling for me, I’ll say that much.

  3. People who are in tune with themselves and others will say, “When you know, you know.” It’s what we say because there is truly no other way to describe it. It is a feeling, and when you finally feel it, you know and you just go from there.

    When you stop questioning things and everything just seems to “fall into place”. Even the “downs”, feel comfortable and you never fear abandonment.

  4. When he makes me laugh. The way he holds me. When we are intermit. When we are sing along to the radio. I fell for my fiancé ten years ago. I still fall for him every single day. That’s how you know xx

  5. I knew instinctively pretty early on — it was just a feeling of complete love and trust and I could tell he felt the same way. A bit later in our relationship I hit my lowest point and was a mental and emotional wreck and he stuck by me — that’s what cemented it. When I tried to leave because I knew I was too much and creating an unhealthy environment he told me it was my choice but he’d prefer I stayed. He saw my potential and the good in me when I couldn’t see anything but despair and chaos. And he supported me and helped me get through that period in my life never even considering giving up on me.

    I’m doing infinitely better now and I probably wouldn’t even be here if it weren’t for him. So, in short, I knew early but he’s proved it to me so many times. I can’t imagine life without him. These days I’m reminded every time I make a terrible inappropriate joke and he laughs his ass off. Anyone that finds me funny has to be under my spell 😛

  6. We never felt like we had to look for a connection point to begin a conversation or liven up a date/hangout. It always came naturally. He’d pick up on small behaviors of mine and I’d pick up his and we just sort of started seamlessly meeting each other’s needs in a way that wasn’t overbearing or infantilizing.

    None of my trauma related behaviors ever manifested between us, like my attachment issues and other abandonment trauma. And when they did try to bubble up we’d talk, sometimes for hours, so that we both understood what was happening and what might be causing it.

    We were long distance for the first year of our relationship because he was stationed 850 miles away from where we were from. I’d never cried (in a healthy way) about leaving a person’s presence before.

    I don’t think I’ve ever loved and appreciated another human being the way I do my husband.

  7. I talked to my girlfriend (now wife) on the phone. She wanted my opinion if I should add this player for Fantasy Football. I could hear in the background that she’s playing resident evil. I thought “I better ask her to marry me before she relizes she can’t do better because I can’t”

  8. Shortly after we made things official I somehow got cholora. Go google the symptoms if you want. She stayed with me and took care of things and even dragged me to the hospital when things got really bad. She stayed the entire time and would curl up on my medical bed and sleep with me every night. My wife is an incredible and amazing woman.

  9. Easy. We stayed together through the hardest times in our lives. He stayed through my parents messy divorce and I stayed through a life threatening disease. we never officially got together but we both knew we love each other. We recently got in a (decently big) fight about how he can’t deal with liking someone right now because his disease. we found our way back to each other as friends but I have been trying flirting with him and he has been flirting back. I know everyone has there own views on if really young teenagers can be in love but I know for a fact they can because I am in love with him, and i know for a fact that he loves me back. He is my one and only
    “the one” and if he doesn’t survive his disease I won’t be able to find another, I’ve always knew i loved him since the minute My eyes landed on that is my very depressing love story
