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? It was a rocky path! NOt that I didn't love him, but I've alwasy been a very analitical person, and wanted to be SURE. And we did have a sort of "love at first sight" thing. We looked at eachother across a dance floor and felt smitten. At our first date, I kept thinking "wow, I think he is the one!!!!"

Did you know that SO was going to propose (and/or were you the proposer)? Yes, but proposals here are not the huge event that they are for you. Usually it is something the couple agrees mutually. There might come a ring later on, or a couple of silver "engagement bands" We chose the second.

Were you "sure" of your answer when he did? As I said we talked about it for months and months. But I was sure by the time we got the bands blessed and put them on. It was a quiet ceremony, with just the two of us and a priest in a small chapel. He blessed the bands and prayed that we found wisdom, strength and love to follow the path that would make us husband and wife. And the we exchanged the rings. It was one of the most meaningful moments of my life.

How was the process of coming to terms with your SO being the one, or the idea of never being with someone else? While we dated and during the engagement, I never really thought about it. Once I was married some thoughts of that did cross my mind. But at the same time, I'm so happy that I have him and our love and that all games and guessings are over! I think that's one of the best parts of being in

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 was sure maybe a month or so into it. IT wasn't really love at first site as my DH is about 4 inches shorter then me. And while it kinda bothered me it didn't last long. He was also pretty shy and I had to work hard to get things out of him cause he just isn't much of a talker.

Adrienne- Make sure you answer too :D

I've loved reading everyones responses, so many different couples and stories!

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? So sure now! We met at a bar and had a great first night but it wasn't like I thought much would come of it. I remember being shocked that he was into me, because I had had previous experience that normally guys like him or at least my first impression of him( really attractive,quite muscular, kind of a jock ) were mainly into blondes with large chests LOL. We ended up going on a date again a week later, and then about 9 months later I pretty much moved in. I knew something was up when he introduced me to his parents like 2 weeks in- I later found out that he basically never did that except with a few very serious long term relationships and then much later. And super cute story that first night we met when he went home later (without me) he actually pictured what our child would look like. Which at the time he thought was kind of strange since he definitely wasn't looking for something serious.

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

Yep we had discussed that we wanted to get married and had set a tentative date but the actual night and the proposal were a complete surprise and perfect!

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

So sure!! So easy to answer.

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

Easy. We had both dated before, had serious relationships and all that type of stuff. We just click so well. I mean we have so much fun together, he is always making me laugh. Definitely best friends. We couldn't fit better I don't think:)Plus we dated about 3 years and lived together for two before getting engaged so we were both sure.

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

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.

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.

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.
