  • We started out as just friends who hung out a little more than average. It took some
    time (months) for us to realize that it could in fact be more, but we were pretty young when we first me, you see, so that is to be expected.

  • About ten years! We've known one another since he was six and me five. When I was 15 I realized I loved my BFF more than just a best friend, I didn't say anything to him because we couldn't date until I turned sixteen. I talked to my Mom about him a lot, she just told me; "Girl, you know he loves you the same way too. I see it, the way he looks at you!" She was right, when I asked him he said yes, he didn't want to ruin our friendship so he never hinted about it to me either. We got married last summer, July 11th, he's still and always will be my best friend in the whole world!!

  • It varies there's no cookie cutter answer really sometimes it's quick, sometimes it takes a while, love doesn't pop up whenever we want it to, it pops up when it's ready to, not before.

  • ... I wasn't in a relationship with her until I was certain that the feeling is there and mutual.

    So that question doesn't really make sense in my case.

  • Interesting to hear some women say almost instantly. Is that really love or just lust? Would they be willing to die for them?

    For me, 6 mo-1 yr.

  • I felt it around 3-4 months. Stopped myself from saying telling him, with it at the tip of my tongue a few times because I felt like that was 'too soon'.

    We've been together over 2 years now, and when I look back in retrospect, I had already fallen at that point.

  • I'm not sure, exactly. And that's probably because I'm still trying to figure out what love is. A year in, I thought I was in love. Then a few months later I thought, "No, if what I feel right now is love, then it wasn't love before." We just celebrated two years together, and I'm still in that loop. Right when I think I couldn't possibly feel any closer to him, I do. I don't know at what point it actually becomes love, and if I'm there yet or if I got there a long time ago.

  • I'm a love at right sight gal. I tend to know instantly if I have chemistry with someone and my boyfriend is no exception. I'd say after a month I knew I was falling in love for sure.

  • He told me around 6 months however I did feel it sooner, but with other past boyfriends it also hit the 6th month mark oddly enough. I think it also depends on how often you spend time with them or keep in contact with them

  • I didn't fall in love...
    I was always in love with him.
    We are childhood friends and we knew each other since we were in diapers. He was there holding my hand on our first day of kindergarten, he chased away my first bully. We entered primary and secondary school together. Every year hand in hand. He helped me through puberty depression and after 20 long years he's still with me.
    How can one not love someone like him?

  • Probably around 5 months. He said "I love you" after a month and a half which was a little freaky but I'm glad I stuck with him anyway. We ended up getting married just a few months ago so all's good now.

  • it took me about 3 months? But then we had to end it after 5 months or so because we were in a LDR so it wasn't working out since our time zones were 3 hours apart.

  • I have only ever been in love once. It took me a few weeks to fall in love. It was such a painful experience, because he didn't care about me like he lead me to believe. ;(

  • As weird as it sounds I think it was 4days. Obviously I never told him that. But honestly I met him out with friends and 4days later he drove 2hrs to hang out with me so I didn't have to spend my birthday alone. We spent basically 20hrs together and I swear I knew I loved him. 2years later we actually started dating after a long period of time not talking. He told me he loved me after a month
