Very early days! Maybe the 3rd day we spent together, I can't explain it any other way than - He just feels like "home" to me.
Loved, warm, sheltered, serene. He calms me it's been three years and I still can't wait to see him at the end of each day.
What a lovely thread
I have seen my fair share of marriages come to an end, so never had any illusions about it automatically being forever or happily ever after etc.
That said, falling for DH was like getting hit by a bus – sudden and life-changing, and I ‘knew’ very early on. I came home from our second date and told my flatmate that I wanted to marry him and have his babies! I did marry him eventually, but we’re still working on the babies part.
Of course our marriage is not perfect, and none of us knows what will happen in the future, but there’s no one I’d rather give it a red hot go with than DH. We’ve been through some pretty hard times and are still solid. 7 years together and I still think he’s a total dreamboat which doesn’t do any harm!
my husband and I started out our relationship as "friends with benefits". We'd both gotten out of long term relationships about 6 months before, and had been really mucking around and playing up when we got set up together, we kinda just went yeah, this is just more fun... but then we started to get quite attached and seemed to be together most of the time. Then one night we went out sepeartely, and I got a text message from him saying "I miss you" and that's when I knew.
Just realised that we didn't actually verbalise "I love you" until after we got engaged... it was just there.
My DF and i met at a bar, he came over and just started chatting to me. He was wearing a flat brimmed hat and baggy jeans, and me being picky automatically wrote him off. Eventually he asked for my number, and i said "how about i get your number and call you?" He gave me his number and i left a while after. When i was walking home i was looking through my phone and he had sent a message to himself whilst storing the number, and tricked me!
He asked me for a date the next weekend, and when he came to pick me up he was standing beside the passenger door with a white t shirt and aviators looks DROOLWORTHY! The date was a total surprise and he took me to Circ du solei (sp?) and ice skating. He literally blew me away.
I knew i loved him when he took me to the beach one night on maybe our 5th date, and we sat on a bench seat looking over the water. The moon was out and it was amazing. All i wanted to do was touch him and hold his hand, the electricity was incredible. That is the precise moment i knew i wanted to be with him forever. I still remember the feeling, like this crazy gravitational pull towards him. We hadnt even held hands or kissed!
Believe it or not the first time we held hands was in a Bruce Willis movie, i couldnt stand being so close to him in the cinema without touching him so went for it!
I have been head over heels in love with him ever since
A bit envious of this romantic stuff!
After we said I love you for the first time (we had only been going out for about a month). I just felt deep down that we were meant to be together. He felt similar as he actually said to me around this time 'I'm going to marry you one day'.
It will be our 8th wedding anniversary later this month, and in November we will have been together for 13 years.
I didn't think it at first, I thought DH was cute and I was ready for a new relationship
Over time it dawned on me that we were going really well and I started to think of our future as grumpy old codgers together lol. Now I can't (and don't want to) imagine life without him
