I would like to hear some stories. Are you engaged/married? How did you decide on this person? How did you meet and how did things progress? What about them makes them so much better than anyone else you've ever known? How do you know?

You just know. You picture your life and yourself in the future, and that person is there. You can't imagine them not being there. I mean, you *can*, but it hurts to. You'd feel empty without them around.
As far as my bf and I (who will be getting married), we met about four years ago at a bar. I was out with friends and he just started chatting me up while I was waiting for a drink and bought me one. Any time I went to that bar, I would see him and we would talk or joke…just acquaintances, really. I was sort of involved/hung up on a guy so I was interested in dating at the time.
Eventually, his group of friends started hanging out with my group of friends and we would all see each other one or two nights a week. We would always flirt and he would hint at taking me out, but I was still stuck on the other guy that was stringing me along. I finally realized it would never progress into anything and moved on. For the first time, I noticed that my now bf was always there. When I was bored, I'd text him. When I was upset about a guy, I'd go out and he'd be there and make me laugh.
One night, I was out as usual with a couple of girl friends and asked him to come out. When he got there, my friends had left but I stayed to hang out with him. I remember him being surprised that it was just me and that I'd asked him out. I ended up going home with him that night and we've been inseparable ever since.
Sometimes I look back on it and think I should've known from the beginning that this guy was it. We've always had a connection and are alike in so many ways. Being with him for the past couple of years has just solidified that.2
