QOTW: How "sure" were you about your SO?

Relationship QOTW . . . some of these are personal, so feel free to share as much or as little as you want!

Name, DH Name:

Were you, and are you now, "sure" that your SO is the one for you? Did you have a love at first sight sort of experience, or did it come later?

Did you know that SO was going to propose (and/or were you the proposer)?

Were you "sure" of your answer when he did?

How was the process of coming to terms with your SO being the one, or the idea of never being with someone else?

What about for DH, do you think he was "sure" right away?

Were you, and are you now, "sure" that your SO is the one for you? Did you have a love at first sight sort of experience, or did it come later? I am completely sure that DH is the one and always will be. We did not have a love at first sight. We have done so much growing up together that our innocent HS dating turned to long time love.

Did you know that SO was going to propose (and/or were you the proposer)? I knew it was eventually coming, but had no idea on definites. We dated nearly 6 years before getting engaged and 7 1/2 years before getting married.

Were you "sure" of your answer when he did? without a doubt

How was the process of coming to terms with your SO being the one, or the idea of never being with someone else? Well since neither of us ever dated anyone else, it didn't seem strange. I went by the "If it ain't broke, don't mess with it" idea and I figured if we made it through college at separate schools, he must be the one.

Were you, and are you now, "sure" that your SO is the one for you? Did you have a love at first sight sort of experience, or did it come later? It was kind of funny. We started off as friends. We met in college and I was still with my ex-boyfriend at the time. We broke up shortly before Valentine's Day. My DH asked me to the Valentine's dance (as friends) and a few days later we started dating. So, it took awhile to fall for him as he was just my good friend for quite awhile.

Did you know that SO was going to propose (and/or were you the proposer)? I had no idea that he was going to propose. We went tO Niagara Falls with some friends and he asked me there. They were the cover.

This is so cool to read how everyone came to be with their DH. :-)

Name, DH Name: Christine, DH

Were you, and are you now, "sure" that your SO is the one for you? Did you have a love at first sight sort of experience, or did it come later? My DH had a LOT of issues to work through while we were dating (none related to me, moreso things from his crappy childhood) and he is still going to therapy for them today so there were times when his issues spilled over into our relationship and we were tested. I was pretty sure he was the one but was concerned about his issues. But once I saw he was committed to therapy and is still going several years later, I knew he would be ok. He has made incredible progress since we first met and I tell him all the time how proud I am of him and how proud he should be of himself for all he has been through. Now I am sure he is the one for me. I wouldn't say we're "best friends", but we compliment each other perfectly, even though we come from very different backgrounds.

The way we met is kind of funny actually.

Were you, and are you now, "sure" that your SO is the one for you? Did you have a love at first sight sort of experience, or did it come later? I'm completely 100% sure, and I think I knew after just a few months. We never really even had a first date. We were friends, and it just morphed. One day, we just were. At least, that's how our friends describe it. :)

Did you know that SO was going to propose (and/or were you the proposer)? I had pointed out a ring style I liked one day, but didn't think anything else about it. Even my mom was in on it. His mom called her under the guise of thanking mom for sending a Christmas card, but she was really asking about my ring size. When he asked me, I actually said, "Are you serious?" before I cried and choked out a yes.

Were you "sure" of your answer when he did? Definitely.

How was the process of coming to terms with your SO being the one, or the idea of never being with someone else? He's the only guy I've ever dated, the only guy I've ever really kissed. I told him from the beginning that I wasn't looking for a casual relationship, and he agreed with me. My grandmother told me I needed to date around, but I've honestly never even wondered what it would be like to be with someone else.

Were you, and are you now, "sure" that your SO is the one for you? Did you have a love at first sight sort of experience, or did it come later? Love at first sight. I just *knew*.

Did you know that SO was going to propose (and/or were you the proposer)? I thought so because he'd asked me what I would say if he proposed the week before. So I was hoping for it :)

Were you "sure" of your answer when he did? Oh yes. I knew the minute he got down on one knee I was going to say yes.

How was the process of coming to terms with your SO being the one, or the idea of never being with someone else? Honestly it was a relief! Like this is it, this is the one I've been waiting for. Since we got married I haven't even thought about other men in the terms of potential mates. This is it!

What about for DH, do you think he was "sure" right away? Do you think it was hard for him to think about never being with anyone else? Well since he proposed to me the first day we met in person, after only 5 weeks of online dating, yeah I'd say he was sure LOL! I think he feels the same way I do, relieved the looking is over. He loves being a dad and we have very similar goals and really support each other. He is my best friend and I am his and we communicate really well with each other. I don't think there is another person in this world he can talk to the way he talks to me.

First, let me say that today is our anniversary! It's been wonderful to have him by my side for 6 years that were sometimes a struggle with our infertility.
