    How did you know the person you were dating was the one you were going to marry? How long were you dating them before?

    For my husband, he started making hints after about a year. It took me about 3 1/2 years, and even then, I wasn't SURE.

    i actually just kinda knew. I met Tim in our 9th grade science class. He was cute, and I knew he liked me, and I liked him, but I had other guys asking me out, so I just teased him for a while.

    We didn't officially start dating until junior year, even though I had moved up to Anoka from Mounds View.

    I felt safe with him, like he would never intentionally hurt me physically or emotionally. There was that connection. My dad likes him and always has. We were engaged by Senior year...I even had the ring to prove it.

    I dunno, I guess I just knew.

    You haven't even had your second date with her yet.

    Just making sure...no worries.

    You know you are truly and insanely in love when you realize that you can't imagine waking up in the morning without that person in your life.

    I just knew it, about a week after we met, and before we ever dated. For me, it was the "I can't wait to see him again" feeling you usually get when you first are attracted to someone, coupled with a new feeling- a very calm certainty that he was a truly good man, and that he was "the one". We worked in the same office, so I had lots of time to observe how smart he was, his integrity, and how well he treated other people.

    I think the mistake many couples make, and one I made in spades a couple of times (getting engaged twice and eventually having to break those engagements), is confusing the butterflies and excitement with a deep and abiding love.

    Just don't ask the question to her; she'll freak. GotZoom has had the best answer so far.. very true.
