Congratulations Shelly43. My husband and I have literally known each other our whole lives. When I was born he was 2 years old and he was my next door neighbor. By the time I was 9 and he was 11 I had the biggest crush ever, on him. Then we moved to a different state but we met up again when I was 21 and here we are 10 years later, married and still in love:)

The first time I met my husband he came to the house to see my brother. I knew when I seen him that I was interested in him. It was several months before we got together but we didn't date long as I knew that I loved him and I wanted to be his wife. He told the guy that was with him the night he met me that he was going to marry me. He had a girlfriend living with him at the night and he went home and told her that she needed to leave. We have been together 13 years and married for 12. We have had some rough periods but I can't imagine life without him.

I was with a girl for 9 years before we split up... 2 weeks after we did, I met a girl whom I can't imagine my life without... I have a daughter who considers my girl friend a mother... I wanted to take it slow just to make sure it didn't happen out of rebound because it just wouldn't have been fair to my girl friend at the time... As the time went on, we just started doing things together & we even howled together, long story... That's one of the things that got us closer... We were coming back from dinner one night & we started talking about favorite animals... Then the talk about wolf came up, being it that it's one of my favorite animals... About 2 minutes into driving afterwards, she just started howling... I thought that was really silly but I couldn't stop laughing & eventually I started howling out the window of the car... From that moment on, I knew I could be comfortable enough with her just to be silly & be myself... Once I let my guard down enough to just be silly with her like that, I knew she was the one... Not that I wasn't being myself from the begining, but for a fact that it hasn't been too long after my previous relationship ended, I wanted to be fair for both of us... That was 6 years ago...

i met my fiance 7 years ago... when we were on our 1st year college. how i knew it was love? because aside from telling me everyday how much he loves me... he shows it to me even to the smallest things which seems normal or not significant to most like whenever there's a wet floor he reminds me "to be carefull" stuff like that. i knew it was love whenever i go to school i always look forward to see him and spend time with him. =) hmmm reminiscing it feels good =)

In my case, it sort of crept up on me. I knew my wife for about a year before I realised, and then only online. One night we were sat chatting during a particularly trying day of mine (I won't bore you with the details; it's horribly geekish), and I was listening to her, miserable because of the current boyfriend she had, and talking about relationships generally. And two things occurred to me: Firstly, that she was pretty much always there for me to start with, and secondly, that I had the means to stop her feeling so miserable, if I was willing to actually come out and say it. Seven years on, I've emigrated, we're married, and I've never regretted the decision/realisation.

Hi again Shell, Wow,you are a busy lady today. Well, I met my husband online. We both joined an online service called Match.Com. It's kind of like this mylot only it is for meeting someone to date. You put your picture online and fill out a profile. I saw his picture and read his profile and I wrote him an email. He wrote back and liked my picture and what I had to say, and we met for a drink. I have to say it was Love at first sight. I looked into his blue eyes and knew he was it. Ten months later we were married. That was five years ago. Congratulations on your 21st anniversary. Have any special plans? Leenie

My husband knew it was love when one of us has a major family crisis, and the other one was there for support in a heartea. It was like jumping into a leaky row-boat ut we were in it together, and we managed to keep it afload. We needed to make sure the "for better or for worse" thing would work beore we ended up gettig married. We stayed together hrough a ouple of things tat would have broken most people up.

My boyfriend was not like any of the other guys in the room. He was different. He saw me as a woman and not as anything else. I wrote in my notebook that I loved him, and he then sent me a message on myspace in cryptic code saying that he loved me, and things took off from there.

That's great Shelly! I knew I was going to marry my husband to, he knew too. He told me that i would propose before he would and I did! Never in a million years would I have thought that we would have ended up together. But I know he's the one for me, he's gotta be the one. No one else will put up with me!

i think that love more than we talk about it it is this halo which you could feel it in your life it lead you through every thing in your life if you have it you have every thing never miss one choice in your life as long as you have it .. all you body could feel it is exist with nice way without you could catch it but is around you giving you the hope the patient the perseverance every thing you need to be success love lead you to go through all of this so ask your self if you did that so you have a real love right there not such illusion good luck my friend and happy personal life
