She followed me into the bathroom at the bar just to make out with me. How could I not fall in love with her?
He met my parents and I hadn’t come out yet. He was angry with me for not having come out and I thought the meeting would go horribly wrong, but when my parents asked him how he knew me, he immediately answered by saying ‘I’m his girlfriend’s best friend!’ They loved him. I came out the next day.
He fell on his ass in front of me and a huge group of people, it was snowing. I went to help him up and he pulled me down with him and said ‘it’s not so bad down here with a pretty girl.’ So cheesy, so perfect.”
I know this is the cheesiest thing ever and I never thought this kind of stuff happens until it happened to me. I knew I loved her the moment I saw her. It was instant. I was completely mesmerized by her. Then, she laughed at something her friend said, and I was like, this is it for me. I need to know this woman immediately. Thankfully, she fell in love with me, too.
Woke up from a dream where she didn’t exist, that was the whole dream. We’d only been dating for a few weeks, but I had this dream where I couldn’t find her and I woke up sweating. I felt like I knew what love felt like, the feeling that you couldn’t possibly lose that person.
“When we kissed for the first time and she was AWFUL but I wanted to keep kissing her anyway, I knew it was love.
“I’ve been in love before but I’m not sure if there was ever a specific moment where I just ‘knew.’ I think love sort of happens slowly, then all at once. It’s like the person is there, they’ve always been there, but you start noticing little details about them – the way they laugh when they think something is really funny, how they look in the morning when they’re tired and quiet, the small noises they make when they’re getting comfortable – all of these things they’ve been doing for years they don’t even realize they do anymore but are completely unique to them and new to you. Each moment of discovery increases just how endearing you find them until it builds up and builds up and then you have no choice but to blurt out “I LOVE YOU!” when doing something totally mundane together like shopping for glassware at Target or standing in line at a concert.”
“When we first moved in together and we were unpacking our books. I stepped back when we were done and I noticed we had doubles of all of our favorite novels. I remember thinking to myself, ‘yup, she’s the one’.”
“My Dad had just died, and I went to his funeral a state over around five hours away. So I’m sitting there alone in my hotel room and my girlfriend calls me to see how I’m doing and I say I’m fine when I’m really torn up inside. I was unable to sleep and at around 4 am I get a knock on the hotel door … I looked through the window and instantly started crying. My girlfriend had driven five hours in the middle of the night because she knew I was having a hard time.”
“The first night we met, I was unemployed and she was far too attractive for me. When I reluctantly told her about my employment situation, she calmly responded ‘Well it looks like I’m buying your drinks for the night then!’. I knew she was something special, a year later I asked her to marry me. We’ve been together 10 years and have two kids. She stays at home and now I buy her drinks.”
