About a month or so.

It took about a month for my wife and I as well. That was almost 6 years ago.

3 days

I’m paranoid and cautious, so it took me about 6 months before I really knew.

Four or five months. But it’s always growing and changing, it’s not the same as it was then, and I don’t expect it to be the same in the future.

I don’t think I ever have.

It took me a full year to actually realize I was completely in love with this person and I don’t want to live without them.

Instantly – quite literally. One look. It took a few months to confirm it, to be sure that I wasn’t imagining it. We are still together in even more in love twenty-five plus years later.

28 years to meet him, and about 4 months after that.

I think I fell in love with my husband on our first date. I refused to acknowledge it for several weeks afterward, but I knew this was something special.

It took me a split second to fall completely and totally in love. I knew it was exactly what I wanted. I immediately went into the shop and bought the plant. : ) It happened a couple of time.

I think about a month when I really accepted it; however, I wouldn’t admit it until another couple of months.

I knew on the first date something was very different and something just worked. I’ve never been that comfortable with someone. It was and still is a completely amazing feeling.

The first time we kissed. I had known him for four weeks, and once we kissed, fulfilling the lust portion of all of it, I realized that, in no way, did I want to be done with him, and I found myself in love.

2 hours after meeting her I knew I never wanted to leave her side. I knew I was in love after our first kiss, which was about a week later.

My girlfriend and I had a ‘moment’ the first time we were introduced. About 8 weeks later we were dating. I think it took about 3 months to be ‘in love’. I think the term ‘love’ is used far too casually by most people, but at that point I knew. By the standard of some of the more mature (dare I say old? I think not) people on here we haven’t been together long, but I am incapable of imagining how I could feel the same level of connection with anyone else. Since the first three months we have kept on hitting new highs, which makes identifying a first realisation difficult because even then I was a bit naive about how good things can get.

Clair's avatar

i knew the second i saw him in person. (we met online.) but i am also paranoid so i knew for an absolute fact in about a month.

I think this could either happen in 3 days or 3 years. I think it could me a couple of months to realize it in my last relationship.
