I’d known that my male friend was interested in me and went back and forth for months about whether I liked him back or was just lonely. He’d come over a few nights for movies and take-out and I could tell he wanted to kiss me, but I never gave him the opportunity. Finally, I decided that no matter what I felt, I at least wanted to make out. I gave him an unexpected hug and he leaned in and kissed me, and as soon as our lips touched I knew that it was him I was interested in.
Postscript: We’re moving in together and talking about marriage and kids. We both know that after a long time of being single and waiting for the right person, we’ve both found it.
I knew it was love when I discovered he couldn’t stand The Beatles either. We hated all the same things.
Postscript: We’ve been married for almost a year.
I was going to an audition and he escorted me to the third floor. The conversation was maybe three minutes, but I felt my heart flutter. Etta James’ song “At Last” was playing in my head. The eye contact was intense and his personality was amazing. The good guy I’d always wanted!
Postscript: I was engaged when we met, but became single a few months later. I asked him to dinner and we’ve been hanging out ever since! He’s been hurt so we are moving slow — but he’s worth waiting for.
Two moments: 1) We fell asleep cuddling in a twin bed and woke up in the same exact position. It was one of the best night’s sleep I’ve ever gotten. 2) I went on a sky coaster, which is almost like bungee jumping. A big drop and a swing in a harness. I’m terrified of falling and I wouldn’t have done that with anyone else.
Postscript: We dated for two years, half of it long distance. It ended because of the distance. I’m seeing him again in two months, for the first time in four years. I still love him.
He made an inside joke about my love of waffles, then made them for me. I knew I had to hold onto him.
Postscript: We’ve been dating 7 months. He still makes me laugh. And breakfast.
When after church one day, I went over to his apartment and fell asleep in his couch. I caught him staring at me as I slept, with a smile on his face. In that moment, my heart mirrored the smile he had on his face.
Postscript: We got engaged four months later.
I believe in love at first sight. I saw him at a wedding and I knew that I wanted to be with him. We instantly hit it off. We’ve kept in touch for the past 4 years. I recently saw him and all my feeling came rushing back. My world stops when he hugs me. He is seeing someone else, but won’t admit that to me. I don’t know how things will end up but I can’t imagine myself being with anyone else but him. He makes me so damn happy!
Postscript: I’ll wait until he realizes how much I love him.
